At pre-implantation, the vascular endothelial cells distribute to the entire area of the graft. Conversely, after implantation, vWF, CD31 and CellTracker Red-positive endothelial cells are seen at the inner lumen of the vessel. Furthermore, the vascular endothelial cells cover the inner surface of the vessel more continuously on the fifth day than on the second day.
The graft of post-implantation is patent and remodeled (A). The wall area and lumen area pre-implantation are shown in blue, post-implantation in red (B). The lumen area is enlarged (P = 0.032) and the wall area is decreased (P = 0.008) after implantation. The total wall area and lumen area shows no significant difference (C).
