Hypertensive heart disease: cardioreparation by reversal of interstitial collagen in patients.

Abstract

Impairment of coronary flow reserve in arterial hypertension and hypertrophy is caused by multiple mechanisms. Medial wall thickening of the small intramural arteries and rarification of capillarization are the major structural alterations in hypertensive hypertrophy. Since the small intramural resistance arteries contribute more to coronary resistance than… (More)
