Torrent description

TITLE:
Biology of the Arterial Wall (Basic Science for the Cardiologist)


Description
Synopsis

Biology, of the Arterial Wall is intended as a general reference text concerned with the biology of the vascular cells and the blood vessel wall under physiological and pathological conditions. One of the major functions of the arteries is to maintain a continuous blood flow to the organs whatever the pressure conditions, thanks to the vasomotor tone of the smooth muscle cells. Great advances have been made over the last decade in the understanding of the endothelial cells as integrators and transducers of signals originating from the blood stream. The pluripotent control functions of the endothelial cells in the vessel wall are now well recognized. A review of endothelial functions and dysfunctions is presented.

The second part of the book is concerned with the blood vessel wall in disease conditions. Several chapters review the role of the vessel and vascular cells in inflammation, and vascular remodeling during arterial hypertension and aging. One chapter is devoted to atherogenesis, atheroma and plaque instability, followed by the pathophysiology of post-angioplasty restenosis, which is a crucial issue in modern interventional cardiology.

This book is intended to be a general reference concerned with the biology of vascular wall cells and the blood vessel wall under physiologic and pathophysiologic conditions. The editors intend to cover the general subjects of the role of mechanical factors, neurohumoral control, and endothelial cell function in dictating the structural and functional responses of blood vessels. Additional chapters include reviews of angiogenesis, growth factors, inflammation, and apoptosis, as well as arterial gene transfer as a potential therapeutic means to intervention. These are important topic areas in view of our rapidly aging population and the significance of vascular disease as a major cause of death and morbidity. The editors are largely successful in meeting their objectives. Clinicians and researchers are the target audience, but this text will be of greatest benefit for those individuals who are new to the field of vascular biology. The editors and contributors are well respected in their fields and provide a unique Northern European perspective. The book is appropriately illustrated and contains a number of useful tables and graphs. Overall, citations are practical and up-to-date. Sections on arterial biomechanics, neurohumoral control, inflammation, and apoptosis are particularly well written. This book encompasses a multidisciplinary effort to address a number of important issues related to the biology of the vascular wall. It will prove most useful to new students in the field.

This text is concerned with the biology of the vascular cells and the blood vessel wall under physiological and pathological conditions. Levy and Tedgui (Lariboisi<`e>re hospital, Paris, France) present 13 contributions that discuss the structure of the vessels and their mechanical properties, including the neuro-humoral control of the vascular system and a review of endothelial functions and dysfunctions; growth factors and vascular biology; vasculogenesis; angiogenesis; the role of the vessel and vascular cells in inflammation; vascular remodeling during arterial hypertension and aging; atherogenesis, atheroma and plaque unstability; and the pathophysiology of post angioplasty resonosis.
