Injury and repair of smaller muscular and elastic arteries. A light microscopical study on the different healing patterns of rabbit femoral and carotid arteries following dilatation injuries by a balloon catheter.

Abstract

26 rabbits of the Danish country strain were subjected to mechanical dilatation injury of the left femoral and carotid arteries with Fogarty's embolectomy catheters F2 and F3 respectively. The rabbits were killed 2, 7, 14 and 28 days after the dilatation injury and the arteries examined histologically. Initially both of the arteries exhibited necrosis of… (More)
