English translation:re-intimalization / reintimalization
Explanation:
I have no problem with this word, even if you don't find a lot of hits in Google (one for re-intimalization; this text looks extremely similar to yours) or Medline (one for reintimalization); since everybody will spontaneously recognize its meaning: the regrowth of the intima, the innermost covering of the vessel wall; as long as this has not happened, thrombi will form on the vessel wall and reocclude the vessel.
Greetings,

Nikolaus

in Medline one finds more articles about \"regrowth of the intima\", so you might choose that.
