  • THE PATHOLOGIC BASIS OF ANGIOPLASTY ANGIOLOGY CASTANEDAZUNIGA, W. R., Sibley, R., Amplatz, K. 1984; 35 (4): 195-205

    Abstract:

    Traditionally it has been said that transluminal angioplasty increases lumen diameter by compression and remodeling of atheromatous material. Recently, a new concept explaining the mechanics of angioplasty was described which challenges the classic concept of Dotter. It was argued that arterial balloon dilatation is achieved by intimal disruption and overstretching of the arterial wall, not by remodeling of atheromatous material.
