Figure 6: Long-Term ApoA-I Infusions in Early-Stage Lesions Have No Effect on Adventitial Vasa Vasorum Lumen Volume of the Descending Thoracic Aorta in Diseased/Aged Mice

Micro-CT was used to derive the vasa vasorum lumen volume of the descending thoracic aorta. Upper panels display representative, volume-rendered micro-CT images of the descending thoracic aorta (red), accompanying azygous vein (blue), and adventitial vasa vasorum (gold). Scale bar indicates 3 mm. Data are mean ± SD. Baseline n = 3, saline n = 7, apoA-I n = 8 mice/treatment. *p ≤ 0.05. Abbreviations as in Figures 1 and 5.
