C-V connective tissue plays an important role in many forms of heart and blood vessel diseases. A general background of macromolecules of connective tissue is presented, and examples of disease are shown which may be considered as metabolic forms of injury requiring repair by connective tissue. In the future, treatment and prevention will be directed toward efforts to alter the biochemical changes which occur in the C-V system at a molecular level.
