Promoting Vasa Vasorum Neovascularization of Vein Grafts Extenuates Hypoxia of the Wall and Its Subsequent Influence on Intimal Hyperplasia

Abstract

BACKGROUND The autologous saphenous vein is the most common conduit for coronary artery bypass grafting, but the vein graft disease will occur. This study used Matrigel basement membrane matrix with many different growth factors to promote vasa vasorum neovascularization and extenuate the hypoxia to improve remodeling. METHODS This study observed the… (More)
