Abstract

During the last 20 years new insights on the pathophysiology of vascular diseases has led to the development of new therapeutic strategies. Their potential benefits are being increasingly appreciated by clinicians today, providing a solid background for a growing use in the near future. In this review we focus our attention on three different issues: endothelial dysfunction as a prognostic marker of cardiovascular events, stem cells and their therapeutic role, and percutaneous carotid stenting as an alternative promising treatment of carotid stenosis.
