Özet

OBJECTIVE: This experimental study assessed the usefulness of a rat model of corneal angiogenesis for assessing the angiogenic activity of cerebrovascular malformations (CVMs) over time. It is the first investigation to have focused on dynamic quantification of angiogenesis related to CVMs (i.e., assessing changes over time as opposed to one point in time) and the first to have compared different CVMs and other tissues in this way.
