The pulmonary vasculature is comprised of three anatomic compartments connected in series: the arterial tree, an extensive capillary bed, and the venular tree. Although in general this vasculature is thin-walled, structure is nonetheless complex. Contributions to structure (and thus potentially to function) from cells other than endothelial and smooth muscle ...
