VASCULAR MECHANOBIOLOGY


VASCULAR MECHANOBIOLOGY


(A) Schematic of an agent-based model (ABM) showing the actions that an individual agent can take; migration, mitosis and apoptosis. (B) Schematic of the initial geometry used for an ABM of the artery wall for the simulation of in-stent restenosis. EC, endothelial cell, VSMC, vascular smooth muscle cell. [1]
