[Turbid-phlegm is an important pathogenesis of restenosis after percutaneous transluminal coronary intervention].

Abstract

The occurrence rate of restenosis after percutaneous transluminal coronary intervention (PCI) was quite high. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been proved to have the effect in preventing and curing restenosis. In this article, turbid-phlegm was proved to be directly related with restenosis after PCI in aspects of coronary arteriography, blood lipid, blood viscosity, fibrolysis system, free radicals, plasma homocysteine, insulin resistance, etc. So it is one of the important pathogenetic factors of restenosis after PCI in TCM.
