AIM Current theories fail to explain the localisation of atheromatous lesions or their variable incidence in different arteries of the same subject. The objective of this study was to compare by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) the endothelial surface and the subjacent elastic lamina of human coronary arteries at the location of areas showing infiltration by lipid and cells, with the same components of internal thoracic arteries of the same subjects. METHODS The endothelial surface and the… CONTINUE READING
