    Abstract: Intramural coronary artery disease (ICAD) has been reported in myocardium affected with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), but has never been studied in detail with respect to the cell type or lipid infiltration involved in the wall-thickening. The lack of heart samples may be one of the rationales to hamper the progress in investigating this disease. Recently, the discovery of naturally occurring HCM in swine has provided an excellent opportunity for the study of ICAD because of the high prevalence of ICAD in this animal. The present study provides a detailed structure feature in the thickened arterial wall of ICAD by both histologic and electron microscopic means. Morphologically, the feature of ICAD is due primarily to the neointimal thickening. Smooth muscle cells (SMC) and extracellular matrix (collagen and elastic fibers) are the major components responsible for the thickened neointima. Fragmentation of the internal elastic membrane is associated with the migration and proliferation of SMC from the media to the intima. Therefore, pigs with HCM may be a potential animal model not only for the study of the mechanism by which SMC migrate and proliferate into intima, but also for the future investigation of interventions in coronary artery occlusion.
