abstract

  • The present study shows that balloon injury, hypercholesterolemia, and their combination cause distinct lesions and functional disturbances. An arterial balloon injury in the setting of hypercholesterolemia produces a diffuse inflammatory response that is accompanied by a sustained impairment of endothelial function and a marked proliferative response.
