Potential new target may aid post-stent recovery

Neointimal hyperplasia is a well-documented remodeling of the innermost vascular layer after vascular interventions and is a significant clinical outcome for many, especially people who have undergone cardiovascular procedures. Proliferation and migration of vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) in the innermost layer of an artery or vein results in vascular wall thickening, which leads to […]
