Flashcards in Vascular System Deck (14):
1

general cellular structure of capillary

simple squamous endothelium with basal lamina

 

no media, no advnetitia

 

1

transported by continuous capillaries

oxygen

2

Bevacizumab =

anti VEGF monoclonal antibody = anti-angiogenesis

3

tunic of epicardium

t adventitia

4

type III capillaries sinusoidal

discontinuous, largest

5

transported by fenestrated capillaries

hormones, nutrients, ions

6

role of medium sized vessels

smooth muscle cells regulate BP

6

transported by sinusoidal discontinuous capillaries

whole cells

7

Type 1 capillaries, continuous

tight junctions admit only

pinocytic vesicles present passage of proteins

(pvs not present in CNS)

9

tunic of endocardium

t. intima

11

tunic of myocardium

t. media

12

foam cells of antheroscelrosis

macrophages ingest LDL


SMC cells migrate to intima, ingest LDL

13

type II capilaries, fenestrated

100 nm windows - permanent pinocytotic vesicles

14

intimal plaques from foam cells = 

antherosclerosis
