Sample text

Angiogenesis is another pathophysiological process that is also evident in atherosclerotic vascular disease: vasa vasorum in the adventitia and media are at a higher density in atherosclerotic tissue and often greater neovascularisation is seen, which leads to stenoses or collateral growth to bypass obstructions, or both. Salt sensitivity It is clear that some individuals’ blood pressures are more sensitive to salt loading or salt restriction than others. The exact mechanisms of the variations in salt sensitivity are uncertain but are related to circulating levels of renin and angiotensin.

In patients with essential hypertension, the balance between the vasodilators and the vasoconstrictors is upset, which leads to changes in the endothelium and sets up a ‘vicious cycle’ that contributes to the maintenance of high blood pressure. In patients with hypertension, endothelial activation and damage also lead to changes in vascular tone, vascular reactivity, and coagulation and fibrinolytic pathways. Alterations in endothelial function are a reliable indicator of target organ damage and atherosclerotic disease, as well as prognosis.
