Endoluminal reconstruction of the arterial wall with endothelial cell/glue matrix reduces restenosis in an atherosclerotic rabbit.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were 1) to improve the attachment of reimplanted endothelial cells (EC) using a fibrin glue, and 2) to assess the impact of endothelial reseeding on restenosis eight weeks after balloon angioplasty. BACKGROUND A possible mechanism contributing to restenosis after balloon angioplasty is the loss of the EC lining… (More)
