Hypertension III: Flow-Induced Vascular Remodeling

Dr. J. Unthank (0779) Shear-mediated luminal expansion

     It is interesting that the increase in endothelial cells occurs first, followed by the increase in the medial smooth muscle cells, and then there is a period of readjustment of the cell number.  I wonder if vascular beds in older animals are capable of these types of changes.
