Endothelial Homeostasis Hypothesis

Recent research indicates that aneurysms are the symptomatic manifestation of an age-related degenerative process. Recent research also indicates that endothelial cells actively sense and respond to focal disturbances in blood flow and to the resulting rise in wall shear stress.

The Endothelial Homeostasis Hypothesis offers a new way of looking at the process of aneurysm initiation, progression and rupture and promises to guide future research into the endovascular aneurysm repair field.

This report, which is targeted at senior executives in both the medtech and biotech industries, summarizes the Endothelial Homeostasis Hypothesis and highlights the potential for new therapies in the field.
