Oedema extension in cerebral metastasis and correlation with the expression of nitric oxide synthase isozymes (NOS I-III).

Abstract

BACKGROUND The development of a peritumoral oedema is a common radiological sign in preoperative CT- and MRI scans of patients with cerebral metastasis. Large tumours can be accompanied by a marginally extended oedema and vice versa. Several cytokines (VEGF) have been identified as mediators of vascular induction and permeability. Transmitters such as… (More)
