To clarify the mechanism of coronary outward remodeling, we examined atherosclerotic coronary arteries morphologically using WHHLMI rabbits that develop coronary atherosclerosis spontaneously. Perfusion-fixed coronary segments of WHHLMI rabbits were prepared at 500microm intervals. After immunohistochemical staining and histopathological staining, the areas… CONTINUE READING
