The endothelium is an essential system in the regulation of vascular function and circulatory homoeostasis (regulation of vasomotor tone and vascular permeability) Furchgott [1]. The role of the endothelium in the microvascular system is mediated by the synthesis and release of numerous substances that act on the smooth muscle fibers. The release of these products is modulated, in turn, by various circulating molecules, by the autonomic nervous system and by local mechanical factors. Shear stress [...]
