Smooth muscle cell - reticulin lamellar units of 13.2 µm thickness composing the aortic intima


Smooth muscle cells of the aortic intima are generally of two forms, spindle and stellate. Spindle cells are typically axial in their orientation, while stellate cells lie parallel to the luminal surface; cell processes do not characteristically extend in the radial direction through the intimal thickness. Evidence is given here to suggest that these cells… (More)
