Atherosclerotic lesions develop progressively with a succession of events leading to the constitution of mature lesions named atheromatous plaques (Fig. To date, the vascular endothelium must be considered as a specific organ with its own functions that contribute to the homeostasis of the cardiovascular system. Endothelial dysfunction is a systemic disorder and a key variable in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and its complications. Endothelial dysfunction is recognized as a major contributor to atherosclerosis and has been suggested to be evident far before plaque formation. The risk is significantly increased when no treatment is provided to the patient. Endothelial cells in atherosclerotic vessels can, as a result of chronic vessel wall inflammation, undergo EndMT. EPCs are the primary protection mechanism for endothelial dysfunction, which promote angiogenesis and maintains endothelial integrity with a series of reactions. By mimicking the microenvironment of early atherosclerotic lesions, here, we replicate the pathophysiological phenotype and function of ECs within microchannels. Conclusion—We discovered a novel pathogenic role of FABP4 in MNC activation and endothelial dysfunction in atherosclerosis. Endothelial dysfunction may play a key role in non-obstructive coronary artery atherosclerosis. Our understating of the role of endothelial dysfunction in the development of cardiovascular disease such as myocardial infarction (MI) or stroke is increasing. Endothelial dysfunction is a threat to the integrity of the vascular system, and it is pivotal in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. 2, D- 97080 Wurzburg, Germany. It has recently emerged that endothelial dysfunction is an early step in the development of atherosclerosis and is mainly characterised by a reduction in the bioavailability of nitric oxide. It is also a reversible disorder. 1.2.1). Endothelial dysfunction reflected by reduced nitric oxide (NO) availability is certainly the causative factor or promoting mechanism of atherosclerosis.

Curr Hypertens Rep 2000 ; 2 : 98-105. This review presents an insight into endothelial function, the interests of its assessment and methods for studying endothelial function. 6 Griendling KK, Alexander RW. Endothelial regulation of vasomotor tone occurs largely via the release of nitric oxide or a closely related compound. Endothelial dysfunction precedes atherosclerosis and is an independent predictor of cardiovascular events. Last Updated on Sat, 24 Oct 2020 | Vascular Surgery. Causes Of Endothelial Dysfunction. In many … Research Atherosclerosis. Endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EndMT) in atherosclerosis. Endothelial dysfunction may serve as a mechanism to explain the vasoconstriction, inflammation, thrombosis and abnormal flow regulation in atherosclerosis, and play a role in the development of atheroma, and pathophysiology of its complications. Understanding the causes of endothelial dysfunction can help a person realize their own risk of the disease. –) production and oxidative stress play important roles in endothelial dysfunction and atherosclerosis. Our study has interesting results while endothelial dysfunction, a marker of atherosclerosis and vascular instability, is independent of metabolic syndrome among fatty liver subjects supporting Thakur et al.’s study but carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), an advance marker of cardiovascular risk factors, is dependent upon metabolic syndrome supporting Duseja’s group. After the previous report of Fischer et al showing a cooperative interaction between apigenin and TMAO pathways in the correction of Cl-transport defect in a mouse model of cystic fibrosis,9 the present data also encourage studies evaluating the interactions between both pathways at other sites (Figure 1). of endothelial dysfunction are directly related to the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and its complications. 8 Baynes JW. 7 Touyz RM. Hemodynamic forces, i.e., atherprotective pulsatile (PS) and pro-atherogenic oscillatory shear stress (OS), can activate mechanotransduction to modulate EC function and dysfunction. But the situation of this protection mechanism in SLE is not optimistic. Dyslipidaemia is associated with vascular endothelial dysfunction and has been suggested as a contributing factor in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. FABP4 may be a therapeutic target for modulating atherosclerosis. It also helps a person understand why they might have developed the condition. Our study aimed to evaluate the vascular endothelial function and its influencing factors in patients with non-obstructive coronary artery atherosclerosis. 24 - N. 24 Pages: 12849-12858 DOI: 10.26355/eurrev_202012_24187 Dysfunction of endothelial cells plays an essential role in the progression of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) such as atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. When the endothelial layer fails to perform all these functions adequately — in other words, when endothelial dysfunction is present — conditions will favor the development of atherosclerosis, hypertension, and other types of cardiovascular disease. Recent studies on endothelial dysfunction in relation to vascular diseases including atherosclerosis have highlighted the key contribution of the microenvironment of endothelial cells (ECs). As an early, reversible event in the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD), strategies to maintain and protect the endothelium are at the forefront of CVD preventive efforts. Free fatty acids (FFA) are produced from the metabolism of triglycerides and were reported to inhibit insulin-induced NO production resulting in impaired vasodilation [ 111 ]. Endothelial Cell Activation and Dysfunction in Atherosclerosis The endothelial cell layer regulates multiple aspects of vascular physiology such as maintaining a semipermeable blood-tissue barrier, coordinating leukocyte trafficking, preventing thrombosis, and altering vascular tone [ 51 ]. Corresponding authors. 7 Citations; 1.2k Downloads; Summary. Reduced nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability is a hallmark of chronic kidney disease (CKD), with this disturbance being almost universal in patients who reach the most advanced phase of CKD, end-stage kidney disease (ESKD). Nitric oxide (NO) suppresses platelet aggregation, inflammation, oxidative stress, vascular smooth muscle cell migration and proliferation, and leukocyte adhesion. Circulation 1997 ; 96 : 3264-5.

Oxidative stress and cardiovascular disease. This means a patient with the condition may go on to develop atherosclerosis. against endothelial dysfunction and TMAO-dependent atherosclerosis. Oxidative stress and vascular damage in hypertension. Circular RNA circHIPK3 as a novel circRNA regulator of autophagy and endothelial cell dysfunction in atherosclerosis. SIRT6 is an important member of sirtuin family that represses inflammation, aging and DNA damage, three of which are causing factors for endothelial dysfunction. A low level of NO is strongly linked to endothelial dysfunction and is considered to be the earliest sign of atherosclerosis (11, 12). Endothelial cell (EC) dysfunctions, including turnover enrichment, gap junction disruption, inflammation, and oxidation, play vital roles in the initiation of vascular disorders and atherosclerosis. Curr Hypertens Rep 2000 ; 2 : 84-91. Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci Year: 2020 Vol. 4 Emerging evidence suggests that endothelial dysfunction is an important factor in the early stages of the atherosclerosis formation, but also in the later stages by destabilization of established plaques. A total of 131 consecutive patients with non-obstructive coronary artery atherosclerosis were enrolled. It is necessary to detect endothelial dysfunction at an early stage using appropriate methods, and to choose a treatment for the recovery of endothelial function. 5 Barton M. Endothelial dysfunction and atherosclerosis : Endothelin receptor antagonists as novel therapeutics. Endothelial dysfunction, or the loss of proper endothelial function, is a hallmark for vascular diseases, and is often regarded as a key early event in the development of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis occurs as a result of organized processes that include vascular endothelial dysfunction, lipid accumulation, abnormal inflammatory reaction, excessive reactive oxygen species production, and vascular cell proliferation and migration. Endothelial dysfunction is one of the first steps leading to atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a manifestation of the imbalance between vascular injury and protection mechanisms, especially in endothelial dysfunction.
