BACKGROUND Myocardial necrosis occurs frequently in elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and is associated with subsequent major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs). This study assessed the protective effect of remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) in patients undergoing successful drug-eluting stent implantation with normal baseline troponin values. METHODS We analyzed 205 participants with normal baseline troponin values undergoing successful coronary stent implantation… CONTINUE READING
