The vascular endothelium was, in the past, considered to be relatively pas- sive, merely acting as a filter between the blood and the vessel wall. It is now clear that endothelial cells actively contribute to the maintenance of vascular homeostasis. Endothelial cells synthesize and secrete activators as well as inhibitors of both the coagulation system and the fibrinolysis system, and mediators that influence the adhesion and aggregation of blood platelets. They also release molecules that… CONTINUE READING
