These results indicate that X-irradiation augments the coronary vasoconstrictor responses to autacoids, predominantly to serotonin, and that this augmentation is accompanied by enhanced intimal thickening. Serotonin-induced hypercontraction after X-irradiation resulted mainly from the hyperreactivity of medial smooth muscle.
