Short wave ultraviolet laser energy in porcine coronary arteries: medial cell death and neointimal formation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Smooth muscle cell migration and proliferation from arterial media into the neointima are major factors in the restenosis process following coronary angioplasty. Because short wave ultraviolet (UV) radiation is cytotoxic for rat carotid artery smooth muscle cells, the aims of this study were to determine the effects of short wave UV… (More)
