    Objective: Several types of cerebral (embolic) protection devices have been used in patients undergoing carotid stenting. This study assessed results achieved with a flow-reversal system. Method: Carotid stenting was performed in 56 patients (mean age, 68 ± 9 years). The mean percentage of...

  • Using Oxidized Low-Density Lipoprotein Autoantibodies to Predict Restenosis after Balloon Angioplasty in Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction. Huang, Ching-Hui; Chang, Chia-Chu; Huang, Ching-Shan; Kuo, Chen-Ling; Chen, Ching-Pei; Hsia, Chien-Hsun; Chang, Yung-Ming; Chen, Hung-Te; Feng, Chih-Chung; Lin, Lee-Shin; Yang, Po-Ta; Tsai, Chen-Dao; Lin, Chih-Sheng; Liu, Chin-San // PLoS ONE;Oct2013, Vol. 8 Issue 10, p1 

    Objectives: Oxidized low-density lipoproteins (oxLDL) and oxidized low-density lipoprotein autoantibodies (OLAB) have been detected in human plasma and atherosclerotic lesions. OLAB appear to play a role in the clearance of oxLDL from circulation. Higher levels of OLAB appear to be associated...

    Restenosis in the months following a successful percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) remains the main limitation to this technique for myocardial revascularisation. Despite intensive investigation in this area, no pharmacological therapy has yet been found to be useful in...
