The aim of this study was to provide a detailed anatomical description of the thoracic region features in normal common (Delphinus delphis) and striped dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba) and to compare anatomical cross-sections with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. CT and MRI were used to scan 7 very fresh by-caught dolphin(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Drug-eluting stents are useful for preventing restenosis, but the patho-physiological processes involved in the proliferative response after implantation are still not known in detail. The aim of this study is to compare the coronary vascular histomorphometry after implanting drug-eluting stents and bare metal stents in a swine(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Incomplete re-endothelialization of stents can be revealed as paradoxical vasoconstriction with endothelium-dependent vasodilators. As no consensus exists about the best method or agent, our objective is to analyze the response to different drugs in a coronary swine model. METHODS Twenty-seven stents were implanted in 9 domestic(More)
Late thrombosis of coronary drug-eluting stents is an infrequent but serious complication of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty. The best predictor of this event is the lack of endothelialization of stent struts. The objective of this study is to characterize and quantify the time course of endothelialization of different stents implanted in(More)
