Nano Technology In Cardio Science

The field of nanotechnology is growing explosively and impinging on all walks of life. Nanotechnology proved to be promising to improve the diagnosis and treatment of heart, lung and blood diseases. Nanotechnology-based local drug delivery has the potential to achieve restenosis prevention while not impeding endothelial healing. Molecularly targeted drugs can be aimed to specifically bind to epitopes in the injured media and adventitia. Nanotechnology can be used in the imaging of atherosclerosis, detection of vulnerable plaque and treatment of vascular stenosis.
