Increased activation of the hypoxia-inducible factor pathway in varicose veins.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Venous hypoxia has been postulated to contribute to varicose vein (VV) formation. Direct measurements of vein wall oxygen tension have previously demonstrated that the average minimum oxygen tensions were significantly lower in VVs compared with non-varicose veins (NVVs). Hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs) are nuclear transcriptional factors that regulate the expression of several genes of oxygen homeostasis. This study aimed to investigate if hypoxia was associated with VVs by ass...
