Abstract

We evaluated predictors of increased periprocedural creatine kinase-MB isoenzyme levels after implantation of sirolimus-eluting stents with an intent to fully cover the diseased segment. The total stent length per patient (predisposing factor) and elective use of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa (protective factor) were independent predictors of increased creatine kinase-MB isoenzyme levels.
