Partial ligation of the rabbit abdominal aorta with fine silk suture for 48 hours produced a circular band of transmural necrosis. On release of the ligature, blood cells from the lumen and from adventitial vasa vasorum, as well as cells derived by mitosis from the adjacent surviving endothelium and media, participated in the restitution of a continuous… CONTINUE READING
