Previous studies show that intact vascular endothelium and endothelial function are essential for coronary collateral growth (18).
Angiogenesis or arterio-genesis, an intact vascular endothelium, and endothelial function are vital for the process of collateral growth adaptation, as well as vascular endothelial dysfunctions are speculated to be one of the major factors disturbing this process (25).

Tile scans were also used to count RtST collaterals and measure collateral growth. The numbers of collaterals branching from the RtST ipsilateral to the traced Gi (i.e., ipsilateral to the T10 SCI) into the grey matter were counted with epifluorescence using a 10x (0.3 NA) objective lens.
Moreover, flow-mediated outward remodeling is essential for collateral growth following ischemia [10].
Myocardial salvage through coronary collateral growth by granulocyte colony-stimulating factor in chronic coronary artery disease: a controlled randomized trial.
(1) entitled "Endothelial progenitor cells (CD34+KDR+) and monocytes may provide the development of good coronary collaterals despite the vascular risk factors and extensive atherosclerosis." The authors evaluated simultaneously the effects of endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) and inflammatory cells on the presence and the extent of coronary artery disease (CAD) and the grade of coronary collateral growth in patients with clinical suspicion of CAD.
The aim of this review is to evaluate the interrelations between ADMA and collateral growth.
