Intracoronary collagen: effects on coronary collateral circulation and the role of thromboxane.

Abstract

This study investigated the effects of intravascular collagen on coronary collateral blood flow. Collateral vessel growth was stimulated in 11 dogs by embolizing the left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery with a hollow stainless steel plug. Experiments were performed 41 +/- 7 days after coronary embolization when collateral vessels were moderately… (More)
