Abstract

Patients who had an increase in their serum amyloid type A level of >100% in the first 24 hours after percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) and also developed a positive antibody result (antinuclear factor or anticardiolipin), had a relative risk of 10.6 for developing restenosis in the first year after PTCA.
