Oxidative Mechanisms in Arterial Distension Injury: Observations Relevant to Restenosis after Angioplasty

Abstract

Background: To explore the hypothesis that tissue iron and reactive oxygen species, including superoxide (O2  ), mediate acute inflammatory and late hyperplastic responses to vascular injury, we studied experimental over-distension of normal carotid and femoral arteries in dogs. Experimental design: Arterial segments isolated in situ were distended with… (More)
