Utility of lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 for prediction of 30-day major adverse coronary event in patients with the first anterior ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction treated by primary percutaneous coronary intervention.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) has been suggested as an inflammatory marker of cardiovascular risk. The predictive value of Lp-PLA2 in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) treated by primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has not been established. The aim of this study was to determine whether plasma Lp… (More)
