(13) including 5 PNV patients, the presence of neovascularization could not be fully identified with FFA and ICGA in 2 patients, whereas the presence of tangled filamentous vascular network was detected in all of the patients with OCT-A.
The timing of failure 7 to 14 days postoperatively may be attributable to delayed neovascularization. If the new vessels from the recipient bed are delayed in formation and insufficient to fully meet the requirements of the flap, then a vascular thrombosis will lead to flap necrosis.
The disease is very common in young adults, especially habitants of sub-continent.2 ED has overlapping stages of retinal vasculitis, non-perfusion, neovascularization, Vitreous Hemorrhage (VH) and Tractional Retinal Detachment (TRD).

Compared to the control group, only increased neovascularization was observed in the vocal cords injected with HA.
In this study, we first reported that hAECs significantly accelerated the diabetic wound healing rate and granulation tissue formation, at least partially, by regulating inflammation and promoting neovascularization.

Examination under anaesthesia (EUA) revealed corneal neovascularization bilaterally (Figures 1(a)-1(b)).
In the past decades, angiogenesis and neovascularization have been studied to a great extent, allowing the development of antiangiogenic products to treat malignancies as well as ocular diseases [5].
After grafting, hypoxia of the vein graft's wall upregulated the expression of hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF),[sup][2] vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and matrix metalloproteinases (MMP), which might worsen the vein graft disease.[sup][3],[4] George et al .[sup][5] found that vein grafts with macroporous external stents had thinner intima than those with microporous external stents, which suggested that vasa vasorum neovascularization of vein grafts might play an important role in the remodeling of vein grafts.
Neovascularization can be understood as the growth of new capillary blood vessels in the body and is an important natural process that helps in healing and reproduction.
Normal cornea is avascular; however, recurring HSK infections lead to neovascularization which causes corneal scarring and fibrosis [28, 29].
