PMID:  9717858     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The role of the extracellular matrix (ECM) in the pathobiology of restenosis has not been fully appreciated. Recent discoveries have shown the ECM to be a complex, heterogeneous structure whose components are dynamically altered in response to vascular injury. This report reviews the structure and function of vascular ECM and the importance of the matrix in modulating the vascular response to arterial injury such as balloon angioplasty and atherosclerosis.
