Rapid Communication Elevated Plasma Active Matrix Metalloproteinase-9 Level Is Associated With Coronary Artery In-Stent Restenosis

Abstract

Objective—This study aimed to determine whether the plasma levels of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) or tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-1 (TIMP-1) were altered in patients with a history of symptomatic in-stent restenosis (ISR). Methods and Results—A group of 158 patients with a history of ISR were compared with 128 symptom-free patients. Plasma… (More)
