Research overview:
Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty is now an established treatment for patients with coronary disease. One of the problems with this procedure is restenosis of the dilated coronary artery. It is not clear how smooth muscle cell proliferation and migration are initiated by balloon injury. Dilated arteries are examined electron-microscopically and immunohistochemically.
