The effects of aging on the intimal region of the human saphenous vein: insights from multimodal microscopy and quantitative image analysis

Abstract

We hypothesized that structural remodeling associated with advancing age occurs in human saphenous veins. To address this hypothesis, we have identified structural remodeling in human saphenous veins by applying histochemistry, fluorescence staining and quantitative image analysis to specifically assess intimal area, intimal cellularity and intimal collagen… (More)
