2. The method of claim 1 wherein the administering is done before, during, or after balloon angioplasty.

3. The method of claim 1 wherein the hyaluronic acid and/or pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof is administered in an amount between about 10 mg and about 3000 mg.

4. A method of inhibiting arterial restenosis following balloon angioplasty in a human in need thereof, comprising administering by perfusion or injection to said human, (a) a therapeutically effective, non-toxic amount of hyaluronic acid and/or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof, (b) a stenosis inhibiting drug, and (c) a therapeutically effective amount of one or more agents selected from the group consisting of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), vitamin C, an anti-oxidant, and a free radical scavenger, wherein the hyaluronic acid or pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof has a molecular weight less than 750,000 daltons and greater than 150,000 daltons.

5. The method of claim 4 wherein the hyaluronic acid and/or pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof is administered in an amount between about 10 mg and about 3000 mg.
