The Structure of Arteries, Growth Adaptation and Repair: The Dilemma of Normal
I shall concentrate on points that appear to me basic to an understanding of the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis in man. Thus in the first place, I shall consider only the main arteries, i.e. the elastic arteries, the aorta, pulmonary, common carotid, subclavian and common iliac, and the larger muscular or distributing arteries. And secondly, I would like to emphasize the fact that there are differences depending upon different hemodynamic factors in the large arteries in large animals, as opposed to the large arteries in small animals. I hope these points will emerge and will be kept in mind.
