Implantation of paclitaxel-eluting stent impairs the vascular compliance of arteries in porcine coronary stenting model.
BACKGROUND The impaired compliance of large and medium-sized muscular arteries has been shown to correlate with the risk of adverse cardiovascular events. We assessed coronary artery distensibilityExpand

Comparison of Short- and Long-term Results of Drug-Eluting vs. Bare Metal Stenting in the Porcine Internal Carotid Artery
Purpose To evaluate the development of neointimal hyperplasia after implantation of drug-eluting stents (paclitaxel) compared to bare metal stents in porcine internal carotid arteries (ICAs). MethodsExpand

An intra‐individual surgical wound comparison shows that octenidine‐based hydrogel wound dressing ameliorates scar appearance following abdominoplasty
Hypertrophic scar formation because of surgical procedures is associated with higher levels of pain, a lower quality of life, and poor cosmetic outcome and requires more resources in follow‐upExpand
