PURPOSE To study plasma levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF, an index of angiogenesis), its soluble receptor (sFlt-1) and von Willebrand factor (vWf, an index of endothelial damage or dysfunction) in patients with proliferative retinopathy and corresponding changes in plasma levels after pan-retinal photocoagulation (PRP). METHODS Eighteen patients (10 men; age, 57+/-16 years, mean +/- SD) with proliferative retinopathy secondary to diabetes (n = 13) and ischemic retinal vein… CONTINUE READING
