The Change of GFAP or S100B Concentration in Serum Before and After Carotid Artery Stenting [post]

2020 unpublished
BackgroundThis study explored the role of GFAP and S100B as cerebral biomarkers in the pre-operative evaluation and post-operative efficacy in monitoring of carotid stent implantation. Method32 with unilateral carotid stenosis who underwent carotid artery stenting (CAS) enrolled in the CAS group. The blood samples of operation patients were collected on three different time points: T1: the day before operation; T2: 24 hours after operation; T3, 72 hours after operation. 32 who were excluded for

The blood samples of patients in control group were collected at D1 (before DSA) and D2 (24 hours after DSA). Results(1). The serum concentrations of GFAP and S100B was higher in the CAS group before operation than those in DSA groupP<0.05. (2). In the operation group, GFAP and S100B increased significantly on the first day after operation (T2) and decreased gradually on the third day after operation (T3) but increased compared with that before operation (T1) with statistical significance (P < 0.05). (3). For patients with symptomatic stenosis before operation, the concentrations of GFAP and S100B in serum were higher than those in patients without symptomatic stenosis (P < 0.05). Conclusions The cerebral biochemical markers GFAP and S100B have a certain change trend after CAS, which can be used as a method to evaluate and monitor the curative effect before and after carotid artery stent implantation combined with imaging tools.
