OBJECTIVES We examined the relative contributions of foreign body granulation and de novo lesions to neointimal hyperplasia in atherectomized specimens of restenosis after coronary stenting. BACKGROUND Clinicopathological studies have suggested that smooth muscle cell (SMC) hyperplasia is the most likely cause of restenosis after coronary stenting. It is… CONTINUE READING
