  • Soluble CD40 ligand (sCD40L) is a marker of platelet activation; whether platelet activation occurs in the setting of renal artery stenosis and stenting is unknown. Additionally, the effect of embolic protection devices and glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors on platelet activation during renal artery intervention is unknown.
