The basal lamina is a specialised type of extracellular matrix. It is found on the basal side of all epithelial tissue but can also surround other cell types like myocytes and adipocytes. It is also called the basement membrane, although it is not the traditional plasma membrane that we have come to know and love. Rather, it is composed of proteins (often ...
It is unlikely that atheroma would develop as a complication of a thrombus.
Atherosclerosis and thrombosis are two independent disorders and not two stages of the same disorder. Atherosclerosis is a disorder of the arterial wall and atheroma develops in the arterial wall. Thrombosis is a disorder of the blood and thrombus is merely attached to the atheroma ...
I believe apart from natural fluctuations of cellular size, the size of squamous epithelial cells (the cells making up the endothelium of blood vessels) remains the same. Therefore, the thickness of the endothelium does not significantly change for any blood vessel.
This answer is based on embryological studies and is limited.
I will extend it later when understand better.
maculae acusticae - walls of utricle and saccule (this most probable area)
cristae acusticae - change in body position
vestibular fibers of cranial nerve VIII (TODO each branchial arch has a nerve - how these differentiate ...
