Progressive compression of the tunica media without signs of laceration was noted in this study. It is a common, yet insignificant finding in arterial stenting [18, 19]. However, there was an increasing amount of collagen, representing scar tissue probably owing to the wall pressure of the devices.

Integration of the spongy, red-stained polyurethane into a chronically inflamed tissue (original magnification ´ 50). b Infiltrates around stent wires (removed) and within pores (original magnification ´ 125) and elastin-poor layer [8, 10, 11, 13±17]. The average neointimal thickness was 390 lm in endoprostheses with a polyester [15] and 460±490 lm in those with a thin-walled PTFE covering [10, 18]. These findings are consistent with our data. The covering used was predominantly thin woven polyester [8, 13±15] and PTFE [10, 17, 18], but polyurethane was evaluated as well [11, 16].

Procedure. 5% halothane and nitrous oxide. Monitoring consisted of continuous electrocardiography, invasive blood pressure measurements and percutaneous record of oxygen saturation. The dimensions of the aorta and the device were measured after placement and at follow-up. For this purpose a calibrated angiographic catheter with 1 cm marker spacing (Sizing catheter, COOK, Queensland, Australia) was used.
