  2. 2. Vessel wall integrity : influence of genetics and flow

    Author : Hanna Björck; Toste Länne; Per Eriksson; Sverker Jern; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the major cause of death worldwide. Underlying causes, such as atherosclerosis and hypertension, are associated with remodeling of the vessel wall ultimately leading to loss of structural integrity. There are a number of factors that can influence vascular remodeling and hence structural integrity. READ MORE
