Mechanical regulation of cell migration and vessel dynamics directs capillaries to form large vascular trees

HOUSTON - In the late 1800s, it was first proposed that changes in blood flow could direct the growth and development of blood vessels. In a new study, published in the journal Development, researchers at Baylor College of Medicine report that increases in blood flow induce small blood vessels called capillaries to fuse, increasing the size of the tube through which circulation moves and reducing resistance. ...

Looking Inside Vessels to Understand Blood's Ebb and Flow

Researchers have known for some time that the blood vessels that transport blood to and from tissues and organs in the body are more than just bodily pipelines. Arterioles and capillaries, the small vessels, actually play a key role in regulating the flow of the blood they’re carrying. Biomedical engineers at Drexel University, who study cardiovascular function, are creating a mathematical model that explains just how they do it. ... Full story

Risk factors identified at diagnosis help predict outcomes for children with rare heart condition

WHAT: A long-term study of children with a complex heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) found that the risk of death or need for immediate listing for heart transplantation was greatest for those who developed this disease as infants with congestive heart failure and for children who also had selective inborn errors of metabolism, a group of rare genetic disorders in which one or more of the body’s key metabolic processes are disrupted. ...
