Our aim was to apply novel contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEU) techniques to characterize remodeling in different vascular compartments during ischemia-mediated angiogenesis. Hind limb ischemia was produced by ligation of an external iliac artery in 60 rats, half of which were treated with intramuscular fibroblast growth factor (FGF)-2 (5 microg). The… CONTINUE READING
