Abstract

Stretch of the coronary artery in a stent is common, and a major contributor to neointima formation, even in the absence of deep injury. Deep injury is, however, a more potent stimulus to neointima formation than stretch. Greater degrees of stretch are associated with thicker neointima. Where neither deep injury nor stretch are seen, the stent has no effect upon the development of neointima.
