Vascular smooth muscle (VSM) plays a key role in regulation of vascular mechanics through modulation of contractile tone. Studies suggest that mechanical or biochemical perturbation can lead to dysfunctional VSM behavior [1, 2]. This aberrant contractility may play a role in vascular dysfunction ranging from cerebral vasospasm to aneurysm genesis.
