Experimental Atherosclerosis in Autogenous Venous Grafts

Arch Surg. 1970;101(6):677-682. doi:10.1001/archsurg.1970.01340300033007

In this experimental study, autogenous venous grafts implanted in the aorta and iliac and femoral arteries of dogs with hypercholesterolemia, induced by a standardized atherogenic regimen, developed diffusely severe atheroma and appeared to be even more susceptible to atheroma than autogenous aortic grafts, Dacron tubes, or the undisturbed arteries of the host.
