Table 1 Overview of experimental protocol

Pig no. Carotid artery randomized for balloon injury Balloon size (diameter in mm) Applied pressure (atm) Hours after balloon injury when MR scanning was performed Minutes of Evans Blue circulation after 45 minutes of infusion

9 Right 12 6 3,5 90
  1. Pig no. 4 developed dissection and occlusion of the right carotid artery, so the MR images of this pig were withdrawn from further data analysis. Thus, eight pigs were included in the analysis. To compensate for the slightly smaller balloon (10 mm) used for pig no. 2, a higher pressure was applied to get the same amount of dilation as estimated on x-ray angiography.
