AIMS The Genous™ Bio-engineered R™ stent (GS) aims to promote vascular healing by capture of circulatory endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) to the surface of the stent struts, resulting in accelerated re-endothelialization. Here, we assessed the function of the GS in comparison to bare-metal stent (BMS), when exposed to the human and animal circulation. (More)
Critical to the detection of vulnerable plaques (VPs) is quantification of their mechanical properties. On the basis of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) echograms and strain images, E. I. Céspedes, C. L. de Korte CL and A. F. van der Steen (Ultrasound Med Biol 2000;26:385-396) proposed an elasticity-palpography technique (E-PT) to estimate the apparent(More)
