Abstract

Notwithstanding numerous intriguing structural and functional aspects of vascular endothelium, this paper is of necessity limited to selected ultra-structural features of the normal arterial endothelium and intima. For a recent comprehensive review, the reader is referred to the paper by Majno and Joris (1978).
