Current therapeutic approaches to restore blood flow in stenotic blood vessels involve the use of percutaneous devices and coronary bypass surgery. In all procedures that disrupt the normal integrity of the blood vessels, there is an increased incidence of vessel luminal narrowing, termed restenosis. Restenosis, arbitrarily defined as greater than 50% narrowing of vessel diameter compared with the reference vessel, is modulated by genetic background and diseases that affect the cardiovascular… CONTINUE READING
