Objective: to examine the effect of reperfusion plasma and sICAM-1 on neutrophil integrin expression and neutrophil adhesion to determine if sICAM-1 has a potential role in the regulation of neutrophil adhesion. Materials: twenty-seven patients, 17 m... Read More about Does soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) affect neutrophil activation and adhesion following ischaemia-reperfusion?.

Does angioplasty improve the quality of life for claudicants?: A prospective study (1999)
Journal Article

This study aims to analyze the impact of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) for claudication on patients' quality of life (QOL). The patients in this study included 108 claudicants, 74 men and 34 women, with a median age of 67 years (range 4...
