  • Differential, time-dependent effects of perivenous application of fibrin glue on medial thickening in porcine saphenous vein grafts Wan, Song; Arifi, Ahmed A.; Chan, Michael C.W.; Yip, Johnson H.Y.; Ng, Calvin S.H.; Chow, Louis T.C.; Yim, Anthony P.C.; Jeremy, Jamie Y. // European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery;May2006, Vol. 29 Issue 5, p742 

    Abstract: Objective: Neointimal and medial thickening play a critical role in late vein graft failure following CABG. Previous ex vivo experiment suggested that perivenous application of fibrin glue may reduce the damage in the circular smooth muscle cell layer of the media of the vein graft...

  • Perivenous application of fibrin glue reduces early injury to the human saphenous vein graft wall in an ex vivo model Stooker, W.; Niessen, H.W.M.; Wildevuur, W.R.; van Hinsbergh, V.W.M.; Fritz, J.; Jansen, E.K.; Wildevuur, Ch.R.H.; Eijsman, L. // European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery;Feb2002, Vol. 21 Issue 2, p212 

    Objectives: From animal and clinical studies it is known that prevention of ‘overdistention’ of vein grafts by using extravascular support ameliorates the arterialization process in vein grafts with subsequent more favorable patency. The most ideal support is a biodegradable,...

    Objective: The saphenous vein subjected to arterial pressure stretches to its elastic limits and constitutes intimal hyperplasia. Sheathing of the vein graft with pressure-resistant tubing might prolong vein graft patency. Methods: Twenty-one sheep received radial vein grafts or hybrid grafts...

    lthough the use of external vein graft support seems a promising approach to prevent neointimal hyperplasia and wall thickening in vein grafts, its extensive clinical application still has a long way to go. The aim of this study was to evaluate short-term effects of self-designed double-layer...

    Background: Venous aortocoronary graft arterialization may precede a preterm occlusion in some coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) patients. The aim of the present study was to identify ultrastructural variations in the saphenous vein wall that may have an impact on the development of venous...

  • Extravascular perivenous fibrin support leads to aneurysmal degeneration and intimal hyperplasia in arterialized vein grafts in the rat. Stojanovic, Tomislav; El-Sayed Ahmad, Ali; Didilis, Vasilios; Ali, Osama; Popov, Aron F.; Danner, Bernd C.; Seipelt, Ralf; Dörge, Hilmar; Schöndube, Friedrich // Langenbeck's Archives of Surgery;Apr2009, Vol. 394 Issue 2, p357 

    External support of vein grafts by fibrin glue possibly prevents overdistension, vascular remodeling, and neointimal hyperplasia. Previous animal models of neointimal hyperplasia showed conflicting results. Here, long-term effects of external fibrin glue support were studied in a new rat model...

    Objective: Aorto-coronary bypass graft disease with its increasing clinical signification represents an unsolved problem in cardiological and heart surgery practice. Late occlusion of autologous saphenous vein grafts is due to medial and neointimal thickening secondary to migration and...

    Objective: Following bypass surgery vein grafts undergo a remodelling process that can lead to restenosis and ultimately vein graft failure. Signalling through mitogen activated protein kinases (MAPKs) is a key mechanism involved in vein graft failure. Here, we investigated whether CBS3830...

    Purpose: The affect of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) integrity on the early postoperative stability of a collagen type-I gel scaffold was investigated. The value of fibrin glue for graft fixation in ACL deficient porcine knees over a simulated early postoperative period was also studied....
