Cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease represent the two most common causes of mortality and morbidity in western countries, and the treatment for these is generally by the mechanical restoration of blood flow in the affected tissues. Stimulation of collateral artery growth (arteriogenesis) provides a potential alternative option for the treatment of patients suffering from occlusive artery disease. Therefore, researchers have established several angiogenesis and arteriogenesis animal… CONTINUE READING
