Relation of local platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa independent activation during coronary angioplasty in acute myocardial infarction to recovery of left ventricular function.


We assessed glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa independent platelet activation in coronary sinus and peripheral blood from patients who underwent angioplasty for acute myocardial infarction and stable angina. Despite complete blockade of the activated GP IIb/IIIa receptor with abciximab in patients with acute myocardial infarction, unsuppressed local GP IIb/IIIa… (More)
