Abstract
In order to assess the capacity for in vivo fluorescence spectroscopi8c analysis of arterial collagen and elastin, fluorescence emission intensity was recorded form rabbit aorta after angioplasty and stent implant, and correlated with extracted elastin and collagen content. FEI from saline treated rabbits after stent implant was higher between 485 and 500 nm than after anti-inflammatory treatment. FEI was significantly decreased after implantation of shorter stents at 476-500 nm. Multiple regression analysis demonstrated an excellent correlation between FEI and elastin and HPLC- measured collagen content at 486-500 nm and 476-480 nm respectively. Conclusions: FEI recorded in vivo form arterial intimal surface, can be successfully used for quantitative assessment of compositional changes in connective tissue. Stent implant can induce changes in intimal arterial structure at discrete sites distant from the stent implant site.
