Far from being only an anatomic barrier to prevent the extravasation of circulating blood into the vessel wall, the endothelium is a metabolically active organ system that maintains vascular homeostasis by (a) modulating vascular tone, (b) regulating solute transport into cell components of the vessel wall, local cellular growth, and extracellular matrix deposition, (c) protecting the vessel from the potentially injurious consequences of substances and cells circulating in blood, and (d) regulating the hemostatic, inflammatory, and reparative responses to local injury.
