It is elevated in certain chronic diseases, including atherosclerosis, and it is believed that this protein, synthesized in the liver, causes and prolongs the inflammatory component of atherosclerosis by activation of a number of molecules present in/on endothelial cells
which participate in the process of atherogenesis .
The age of the patients or preoperative endothelial cell
