BACKGROUND Histological examination of the effects of balloon angioplasty have been described from in vitro experiments and a limited number of pathologic specimens. Intravascular ultrasound imaging permits real time cross-sectional observation of the effect of balloon dilation on the atherosclerotic plaque in vivo. METHODS AND RESULTS The morphological effects of coronary angioplasty were visualized at 66 lesions in 47 patients immediately after balloon dilatation with an intravascular… Expand
