Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression in the subacromial bursa is increased in patients with impingement syndrome.

Abstract:

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), which is known to be an angiogenetic factor, plays an important role in the inflammation of synovial tissue. To investigate the relationships between VEGF and clinical symptoms in rotator cuff disease, VEGF expression was examined using RT-PCR and immunohistochemical analysis in 50 patients with this disease (26 with full-thickness cuff tear, 12 with partial-thickness tear, and 12 with subacromial bursitis). VEGF mRNA expression was detected in 40 ou...
