Repair and remodeling processes initiated by arterial injury are thought to be critical in the pathogenesis of important vascular disorders. However, how these processes are related to specific types of injury is not well defined. Consequently, we compared arterial responses to several types of injury. Segments of rabbit carotid arteries were injured by intraluminal passage of an inflated embolectomy catheter, by hyperdistending the arteries with sterile saline, or by flushing them briefly with… CONTINUE READING
