Different degrees of vascularization and their relationship to the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor, placental growth factor, angiopoietins, and their receptors in first-trimester decidual tissues.


OBJECTIVE To evaluate vascular adaptation to implantation by studying vascularization and angiogenic factors in the decidua basalis (DB), decidua parietalis, and decidual secretory endometrium of first-trimester pregnancies. Comparison of these tissues provides information about the regulation of vascularization by pregnancy-induced hormones and/or the… (More)
