Brief Review Small Artery Structure in Hypertension Dual Processes of Remodeling and Growth

Abstract

A lthough the causes of high blood pressure vary, it / \ is becoming clear that sustained hypertension is -Z A . associated with changes in cardiovascular structure: left ventricular hypertrophy and increased wall thickness:lumen diameter (wall:lumen) ratio of the blood vessels. To some extent, these alterations are natural physiological responses and are… (More)
