Update on the role of angiotensin in the pathophysiology of coronary atherothrombosis

Published inEuropean journal of clinical investigation, vol. 45, no. 3, p. 274-287
Publication date2015

Coronary atherothrombosis due to atherosclerotic plaque rupture or erosion is frequently associated with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Significant efforts have been made to elucidate the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying acute coronary events.
