We inves­ti­gat­ed ­late-­onset anas­to­mot­ic sten­o­sis in an implant­ed pros­thet­ic ­graft. Rupture of the pseu­do­in­ti­ma and hem­or­rhag­ing ­from the ­vasa vas­or­um ­were ­observed at the bor­der of the col­lag­e­nous tis­sue and ­fibrin ­layer. An immu­no­his­to­log­i­cal ­study ­showed ­that the ­fibrin ­layer was pos­i­tive for tPA, but weak­ly pos­i­tive for PAI-1. Some neu­troph­ils and mono­cyte/mac­ro­phag­es in the ­fibrin ­layer ­were immu­nos­tained for tPA, uPA, uPAR, and MMP-1, -2 and -3. Some spin­dle-­shaped ­cells sur­round­ing the ­graft ­were immu­nos­tained for uPA, uPAR, MMP-1, -2, -3, -7 and -9, and ­TIMP-1 and -2. The endo­the­lial ­cells of ­some micro­ves­sels ­were pos­i­tive for MMP-1 and -2, and tPA. Some mul­ti-nucle­at­ed ­giant ­cells ­were immu­nos­tained for MMP-7 and-9, tPA, PAI-1, uPA, and uPAR. Overexpressed MMPs and PAs pos­sibly ­caused instabil­ity of the pseu­do­in­ti­ma.
