Re-endothelialization of isolated segments of the canine carotid artery with reference to the possible role of the adventitial vasa vasorum.

Abstract

This study was designed to determine if the adventitial vasa vasorum contribute to re-endothelialization of the canine carotid artery after removal of the endothelial flow surface. Casting studies demonstrated that vasa vasorum are present only in the adventitia of the canine carotid artery. Ninety autograft segments of the carotid artery from which the… (More)
