I'm looking to do some work using porcine carotid arteries freshly
harvested from slaughterhouse animals to assess damage to the vessel
walls by intravascular medical devices (guidewires, catheters,
thrombectomy and atherectomy devices designed to clear thrombus and


I would like to stain the arteries with water-soluble dyes to detect
gross damage to the intimal and medial layers using low magnification
binocular microscopy. Would any stains be particularly useful?


Best regards,
