Blood vessels exhibit a remarkable ability to adapt throughout life that depends upon genetic programming and well-orchestrated biochemical processes. Findings over the past four decades demonstrate, however, that the mechanical environment experienced by these vessels similarly plays a critical role in governing their adaptive responses. This article briefly reviews, as illustrative examples, six cases of tissue level growth and remodeling, and then reviews general observations at cell-matrix… CONTINUE READING
