Methods: From June April 2013 to March 2016, a total of 127 patients with moderately or severely calcified coronary lesions were treated with RA. Patients were divided into two groups according to the balloon type after RA: RA+CB group (n = 75) and RA+plain balloon group (n = 52).
Anakinra blocks the action of interleukin-1 (IL-1) in RA. However, only some symptoms and other associated complications of RA patients could be cured by using these biological DMARDs, and the side effects (such as infection, liver damage, reduced ability to make new blood cells, nausea, and pain or swelling at the injection site) also cannot be ignored.
