The supportive and outermost layer of the artery is also the most sensitive to injury during treatment.
External Elastic Lamina (EEL)
Science has proven that when this thin bright border is breached, the body may generate an aggressive healing response that leads to renarrowing of the artery.
The middle or muscular layer of the artery shows up as a dark band with OCT imaging.
The deposits that cause the narrowing in the artery can easily be characterized and differentiated from the arteries natural structures because it’s non layered and amorphous.
