Fig. 4

Representation of angiographic data pre and post thrombus aspiration (TA) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in the upper part of the figure. In the middle part of the figure the thrombus dimension as surface area, and in the lower part of the figure the immunohistochemistry images of the serial sections incubated with the anti-CD68, tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), and nitrotyrosine comparing hyperglycemic vs. normo-glycemic thrombus (*P value < 0.05). In the right inferior part of the figure, the bar graphs representing areas with higher vs. lower expression of the analyzed marker, that are expressed in percentage, and called as rich areas %. Hyperglycemics vs. normoglycemics, *P value < 0.05
