Comparison of ischemia-modified albumin levels in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention for unstable angina pectoris with versus without coronary collaterals

Am J Cardiol. 2004 Jan 1;93(1):88-90. doi: 10.1016/j.amjcard.2003.09.019.

Abstract

This study compared ischemia-modified albumin levels, a marker of ischemia in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. Ischemia-modified albumin levels were significantly lower in patients with collateral circulation compared with those without collateral circulation.
