The aim of the study was to determine the source of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in hematoma fluid of patients suffering from chronic subdural hematoma (CSH) and to identify the level of gene expression of the pro-angiogenic factors angiopoietin 1 (ANG-1) and ANG-2 in hematoma membranes. Samples of venous blood, hematoma fluid, and outer membrane were obtained during surgery for CSH. The numbers of mononuclear cells were determined in hematoma fluid and in venous blood samples… CONTINUE READING
