Abstract


Background:
Coronary stenting is associated with acute inflammation within the arterial wall followed by neointimal growth. Acute inflammatory response is expressed by a marked systemic elevation of the inflammatory biomarker C-reactive protein (CRP). It has been shown that the degree and extent of CRP increase may be related to clinical presentation or periprocedural treatment.
Aim:
To investigate whether an increase in CRP level is associated with the extent of arterial injury during stent deployment.
Methods:
CRP levels were measured with a high-sensitivity CRP (hsCRP) assay. Seventy-three patients (51 males) with normal baseline plasma CRP (
