Cactus polysaccharides (CP), some of the active components in Opuntia dillenii Haw have been reported to display neuroprotective effects in rat brain slices. In the present study, we investigated the neuroprotective properties of CP and their potential mechanisms on brain ischemia-reperfusion injury
To assess the predictive value of C-reactive protein (CRP) on periprocedural myocardial injury (PMI), evaluated by creatine kinase-myocardial band isoform (CK-MB) elevation in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation for the
Sirolimus-eluting stents have been reported to be effective in the treatment of coronary bifurcations. Still, it has not been fully clarified which strategy would provide the best results with true bifurcation lesions.
The CACTUS trial (Coronary bifurcations: Application of the
