What is vasodilation? Widening of blood vessels that results from relaxation of the muscular walls of the vessels.( ) Vasodilators are agents that widen the blood vessels, cause a decrease in vascular resistance and an increase in blood flow. They bring about relaxation of the smooth muscle in the blood vessel walls or act locally on blood vessel smooth muscle cells. ( )
