Association of systemic inflammatory state with troponin I elevation after elective uncomplicated percutaneous coronary intervention

      Many recent experimental and clinical studies have provided evidence for the presence of inflammation in atherosclerosis.
      • Ross R.
      Atherosclerosis an inflammatory disease.
      Several inflammation markers, including C-reactive protein (CRP), have been implicated in this process, with their serum concentrations increased in a variety of atherosclerotic diseases.

      Novel inflammatory markers of coronary risk. Theory versus practice.
      Ongoing inflammatory reactions in coronary atherosclerotic plaques are increasingly believed to be major determinants of the clinical course of patients with acute coronary syndromes.

      • Selwyn A.P.

      Inflammation, the endothelium and acute coronary syndromes.
      Recent studies have provided evidence that cardiac troponin elevation occurs commonly after coronary intervention.

      The purpose of the study is to examine the association of the systemic inflammatory state, reflected by serum CRP, with the occurrence of troponin I elevation after elective uncomplicated successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
