In-stent restenosis and stent thrombosis are major complications after percutaneous coronary intervention and coronary stent placement. The inflammatory status of an individual, as reflected by biomarkers and genetic polymorphisms, is a strong predictor of the risk of in-stent restenosis and stent thrombosis. Identifying biomarkers and studying their values are crucial for a more efficient personalized intervention. General inflammatory biomarkers, evidence of inflammation, and the difference… CONTINUE READING
