Abstract

The multilayer flow modulator (MFM; Cardiatis, Isnes, Belgium) is a self-expandable mesh of braided cobalt alloy wires, used for treatment of aortic and peripheral aneurysms. To further improve our understanding of this novel technology, the endothelialization kinetics of the MFM was investigated and compared with those of two marketed single-layer stents. Five porcine animal models were used in which a total of 19 stents were implanted in the iliac and carotid arteries between one and five weeks before sacrifice. All 19 stents were successfully delivered. For all devices, nonsignificant signs of inflammation or thrombosis were noted, and there was no evidence of local intolerance. The MFM developed a thin layer of endothelial cells earlier and was associated with less neointimal development than the two single-layer stents. A differing phenomenon of integration was also revealed and hypothesized as endothelialization from adhesion of circulating endothelial progenitor cells, as well as adhesion from the arterial wall, and also by the differences in trauma exposed to the arterial wall.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 11 May 2015.
All research outputs
#3,571,136
of 5,085,521 outputs
Outputs from Vascular
#43
of 129 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#117,946
of 163,643 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Vascular
#1
of 10 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 5,085,521 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 129 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 0.9. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 51% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 163,643 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 10 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
