Saphenous vein graft stenosis is a significant clinical complication for coronary artery bypass patients. Endothelin-1, a peptide synthesised by vascular endothelial cells, is the most potent known vasoconstrictor and has mitogenic properties. Recent advances in our knowledge of endothelin-1 synthesis and endothelin receptor expression and function in normal and atherosclerotic human saphenous vein imply a role for the peptide in the progression of vein graft failure. Manipulation of the… CONTINUE READING
