• stents
  • The neointima of the stents with ≥3.0 μCi 32 P was composed of smooth muscle cells, matrix proteoglycans, calcification, foam cells, and cholesterol clefts. (ahajournals.org)
  • 2 Hehrlein et al, 5 however, reported a reduction in neointima after 12 weeks in rabbit iliac arteries after placement of radioactive stents with only 13 μCi 32 P. Stents with 4 μCi of 32 P were histologically similar to nonradioactive stents. (ahajournals.org)
  • locally delivered to the wall of the artery, a paclitaxel coating limits the growth of neointima (scar tissue) within stents. (wikipedia.org)
  • coronary
  • 11 In brief, adjacent segments of human coronary artery were implanted into the infrarenal aortae of 8- to 12-week-old C.B-17 severe combined immunodeficient (SCID)/beige mice. (ahajournals.org)
  • media
  • We therefore compared secretion of TIMPs-1 and -2 from cultured aortic explants derived from arch, middle, and distal portions of thoracic aortas of normal rabbits and rabbits fed a 1% cholesterol diet for 8 weeks, using reverse zymography of conditioned media. (ahajournals.org)
  • mouse
  • A group of animals received 1×10 8 human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) per mouse (or control buffer), injected intraperitoneally 1 week after transplantation. (ahajournals.org)
  • animals
  • Vessels were harvested at 1, 2, 4, 6 and 16 weeks after dilation (n=8 animals per time point) and analyzed using confocal microscopy. (ahajournals.org)
