Effects of dipyridamol and methylprednisolone on intimal thickening in vein grafts.

Abstract

Fibrous intimal proliferation severe enough to produce occlusion has been observed in vein segments used for aorta-coronary bypass grafts. In an attempt to improve graft patency and decrease intimal fibrous thickening, animals with vein grafts were treated with dipyridamole or methylprednisolone for 8 to 12 weeks.
