Relationship between the Level of Circulating CD45+ Platelets and Development of Restenosis after Implantation of Drug-Eluting Stents to Patients with Coronary Heart Disease

The study was carried out in 126 patients with stable angina pectoris, who underwent elective coronary artery stenting with drug-eluting stents and follow-up angiography within 6-12 months thereafter. Five significant risk factors of restenosis were identified by binary comparisons of different variables. The logistic regression equation that included the level of CD45-positive platelets, diabetes, small vessel stenting, number of simultaneously implanted stents in one patient, and lesion length demonstrates the highest level of prediction of in-stent restenosis (OR=22.8; p<0.001). ROC-analysis demonstrated high prognostic value of the logit model (area under ROC curve 0.87, p<0.001). The data suggest that a close relationship exists between the development of restenosis and the level of circulating CD45+ platelets.
