Inflammatory Response and Neointimal Thickness in a Porcine Coronary Model.
This study evaluated the effectiveness of stent-based cerivastatin in
treating the inflammation and cell proliferation resulting from DES
implantation. Relying on a porcine based coronary model for testing, this
study also evaluated the occurrence of late stage thrombosis as a result
of decreased endothelialization on the arterial surface.
