Arterial remodeling after balloon angioplasty or stenting in an atherosclerotic experimental model.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Recent studies have indicated that coronary restenosis after balloon angioplasty is the sum of geometric remodeling and neointimal formation. A proportional relationship between acute gain and late lumen loss has been observed in clinical trials. The aims of this study were to evaluate (1) the contribution of geometric remodeling and neointimal… (More)
