OBJECTIVE Insulin resistance is associated with a constellation of factors that enhance the artherosclerotic process. Vessel injury results in the formation of a markedly increased neointima in type 2 diabetes. Increased neointimal hyperplasia (NH) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression may lead to restenosis post angioplasty. We studied… CONTINUE READING
