The pulmonary vasculature exhibits various morphological changes in patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH). Among them, the plexiform lesion is one of the most characteristic vascular lesions, although nothing is known about the molecular mechanisms of its formation. In the present study, the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), an… CONTINUE READING
