1. Balloon catheter injury to the rabbit carotid artery damaged the endothelium and induced neointima formation over 7 days. The area of intima, expressed as a percentage of the media, was 16.2 +/- 4.2% and 8.2 +/- 0.1% in balloon catheter-injured and sham-operated arteries. 2. Seven days after arterial injury, carotid arteries were isolated and set up as ring preparations in organ baths for isometric tension measurements. Balloon catheter-injured arteries first contracted with noradrenaline (0… CONTINUE READING
