  • A stenosis amounting to 45-60% of the luminal diameter was made in the thoracic aorta of six New Zealand White rabbits. The progress of the ensuing poststenotic dilatation (PSD) was followed by daily X-ray analysis after which angiograms were taken for the calculation of luminal diameters. Specimens of the aorta proximal and distal (PSD) to the stenosis were digested to expose the internal elastic lamina (IEL) and viewed using a scanning electron microscope. The dilatations, which ranged… CONTINUE READING
