Abstract

Background: Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is accepted as a model of myocardial ischaemia. in studies of ischaemia. markers, especially of ischaemia-modified albumin (IMA). However, there is concern that IMA levels may reflect changes in albumin concentrations rather than myocardial ischaemia also during PCI.
