Effect of endovascular stent strut geometry on vascular injury, myointimal hyperplasia, and restenosis.

Abstract

PURPOSE Early restenosis and the development of myointimal hyperplasia in stented blood vessels have been attributed to deep vascular injury with fracture of the internal elastic lamina (IEL). The purpose of this study was the evaluation of the vascular wall response to superficial injury (without IEL rupture) after balloon angioplasty and intravascular… (More)
