A reliable method has been developed to produce stenosis of the right coronary artery of baboons as a consequence of electrostimulation of the vessel at a chosen position. At that site a pair of electrodes were implanted and activated with a train of 9-volt pulses (length: 10 ms, separation: 100 ms) for 30 min, 5 days/week, up to 6 weeks. 13 animals were included in the experiment, 2 of those served as controls. Pathohistologically the structure of the artificially produced constrictions is similar to atherosclerotic lesions. On average the stenoses occupied 55% of the available lumen; total occlusion and no stenosis were observed in 1 case each.
