The blood circulatory system serves as critical infrastructure for mass transportation of nutrients and facilitates the exchange of gaseous and waste products from organs in the human body. These blood vessels are subjected to constant exposure to the hydrodynamic pressure of blood flow, as well as the contracting and relaxing rhythm exerted by tissues surrounding it. The exposure to these stimuli can trigger a cascade of cellular responses that may give rise to adverse conditions such as thrombosis and inflammation in blood vessels.
