JOS accounts for thermal conductance between tissues, a detailed vascular system, and the human thermoregulatory system consisting of perspiration, vasomotion, shivering heat production, and arterio-venous anatomies.
The fact that vasomotion (the ability to undergo vasodilation and vasoconstriction) was restored in response to vasoactive agents in the stented vessel segment was a really good sign.
"The absence of a foreign body and the restoration of vasomotion raise the hope of a normal healed vessel without the risk of late stent thrombosis," the researchers said.
