Abstract: It is well known that the collateral vessels, in TCM, is the unity of structures and functions of qi collaterals, blood collaterals and collateral loops. The term of “collateral vasculopathy” refers to the process of the normal collateral vessels turning into the diseased collateral vessels and leading to the collateral vessel diseases at last. And the syndrome of stirring wind arising from “collateral vasculopathy” is defined as “endogenous collateral-wind”, the presentation form of diseased collateral vessels, reflecting the mutability of shapes and characters of collateral vessels. The syndrome of “endogenous collateral-wind” is due to collateral deficiency, heat-toxin stagnation or exogenous wind. Furthermore, the concepts of “endogenous collateral-wind” and “endogenous liver-wind” have something in common, but not really the same. The theory of endogenous collateral-wind have been successfully applied to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) post-operation, acute exacerbation of heart failure or cardiorenal syndrome, and tachyarrhythmias. It will become one of directions of TCM scientific research, we believe, that the study for the theory of endogenous collateral-wind to treat collateral vessel diseases guiding the treatment and diagnosis of multiple difficult and complicated diseases.

Key words: collateral vessels, diseased collateral, collateral diseases, endogenous collateral wind, theoretical discussion
