  • 2014 (First Publication: 15 March 2014)
  • In this study, we examined the ability of vasoactive agonists to induce dynamic changes in vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) elasticity and adhesion, and tested the hypothesis that these events areExpand

  • 2014 (First Publication: 15 February 2014)
  • Inward remodeling is the most prevalent structural change found in the resistance arteries and arterioles of hypertensive individuals. Separate studies have shown that the inward remodeling processExpand

  • 2014 (First Publication: 1 April 2014)
  • The resistance arteries and arterioles are the vascular components of the circulatory system where the greatest drop in blood pressure takes place. Consequently, these vessels play a preponderantExpand
