Distribution and morphologic features of coronary artery disease in cardiac allografts: an intracoronary ultrasound study. Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography Chenzbraun, A., Pinto, F. J., Alderman, E. L., Botas, J., Oesterle, S. N., Schroeder, J. S., Valantine, H., Popp, R. L. 1995; 8 (1): 1-8


The longitudinal distribution and circumferential pattern of coronary intimal proliferation were studied with intravascular ultrasonography in 135 patients after heart transplantation. Eighty-seven (64%) of 135 patients had significant intimal thickening, with most lesions (63%) concentric and free of fibrosis or calcification. Both diffuse and nonuniform longitudinal patterns of intimal thickening were found.
