This animation focuses on the renin angiotensin aldosterone system (RAAS), a classic endocrine system that helps to regulate long-term blood pressure and extracellular volume in the body.
Many aspects of cardiovascular disease progression can be directly linked to the RAAS system. Mechanisms such as vascular inflammation, generation of reactive oxygen species and alterations of endothelial function are all known to play a role in atherosclerosis.
