Effects of vascular endothelial growth factor on ischemic spinal cord injury caused by aortic cross-clamping in rabbits.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Spinal cord injury remains a devastating complication of thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic operations. We aim to investigate neuro-protective role of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) administered to rabbits after occlusion against ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury. MATERIALS AND METHODS Occlusion of the abdominal aorta was applied… (More)
