[Structure of the neointima after balloon catheter injury of the rabbit aorta in the context of hypercholesterolemia: analysis of endothelial influence on lipid accumulation].


Balloon catheter de-endothelialization of abdominal aorta of cholesterol-fed rabbits was performed. As a result, partly endothelialized neointima was formed, consisting of smooth muscle cells and macrophages. Neutral lipids stored more intensely in non-endothelialized part of neointima. Preferential intracellular lipid accumulation in this area was observed… (More)
