Effects of the drug treatment on the two evaluation parameters, that is the number of branching points and angiogenic score, are presented in Figures 2a and 2b.
Pioneering studies by Chodak and Summerhayes (4) which demonstrated that pieces of bladder tumor can stimulate angiogenesis and that angiogenic factors are present at high levels in the urine of patients with bladder tumors led to further studies on the role of angiogenesis in bladder cancer (5).
This angiogenic imbalance linked with maternal endothelial dysfunction, blood coagulation and renal endotheliosis, manifests as increased blood pressure and proteinuria (2).
Understanding of angiogenesis in the pulp-dentine complex is still in its infancy, and most studies have considered the effects of angiogenic growth factors, but these responses depend on binding of growth factors to tyrosine receptors.
Women with preeclampsia have been shown, for instance, to have had increased levels of antiangiogenic factors (soluble FMS-like tyrosine kinase 1 and soluble endoglin) and decreased levels of angiogenic factors (vascular endothelial growth factor and placental growth factor) prior to developing the condition clinically.
Therefore, our study is the first to show the role of angiogenic and anti-angiogenic markers in PP in both the preoperative and the postoperative periods.
Multivariable logistic regression models were performed to compute adjusted and unadjusted odd ratios between (1) angiogenic growth factors versus PAD (low ABI) and (2) angiogenic growth factors versus leg pain on exertion.
