Presentation and comparison of key operation procedures in three groups. a, d, g Selective coronary angiography determined the location of balloon occlusion or embolism in three groups. b, e, h Blood flow was completely blocked after balloon occlusion or embolism of the distal LAD coronary artery in three groups, and the blood flow of the second diagonal branch was still normal and clear. c, f, i Three months after operation, coronary angiography confirmed that three minipigs have vascular recanalization in the HB group; meanwhile, no vascular recanalization occurred in the BBS group. The yellow arrow indicates the location of the second diagonal branch, and the red arrows indicate the location of the metal marker of balloon
