Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cardiovascular (CV) diseases are the leading cause of global mortality and a major contributor to disability. Among them, atherosclerosis and aortic aneurysms are characterized by a pathological remodeling of the vascular wall that could progress to plaque and/or aortic wall rupture and eventually to CV events and deaths. Treatment of both, atherosclerosis and aneurysms, are mainly based on the control of different CV risk factors but there is still an unmet need to find novel potential therapeutic targets to prevent the devastating effects of vascular rupture.

This Special Issue will summarize contributions that advance our understanding of the etiology of vascular remodeling. We aim to highlight the involvement of resident and infiltrated cells in the pathophysiology of CV diseases, including articles/reviews focused on specific cell types. In addition, we welcome contributions that advance in our understanding of molecular mechanisms driving and affecting these pathologies, with a special emphasis on studies with potential human translation.
