BACKGROUND Restenosis due to neointima formation is the major limitation of stent-supported balloon angioplasty. Despite abundant animal data, molecular mechanisms of neointima formation have been investigated on only a limited basis in patients. This study sought to establish a method for profiling gene expression in human in-stent neointima and to… CONTINUE READING
