Experimental research using in vitro and in vivo models of vascular injury have delineated several common mechanisms that characterize the arterial damage in diseases such as atherosclerosis and hypertension. Changes in endothelial permeability, smooth muscle cell proliferation, and accumulation of connective tissue matrix are major common mechanisms… CONTINUE READING
