On day 30 and 45, the cornea presented central vascularization and very discrete and poorly significant areas of transparency were observed close to the transplanted limbus (Figure 1D).
Boldrini surmised that reduced cognitive-emotional resilience in old age may be caused by this smaller pool of neural stem cells, the decline in vascularization, and reduced cell-to-cell connectivity within the hippocampus.
The transducer was lightly supported on the skin, without pressing of the skin to avoid an underestimation of the vascularization due to the compression of the blood vessels.
Color Doppler ultrasound (CDUS) and power Doppler ultrasound (PDUS) can depict hyperemic part of the lesions, providing evidence about vascularization of the inner joints.[sup][14] Ultrasound is also able to detect cartilage and bone erosions, as well as tenosynovitis.[sup][15],[16] In recent years, researchers have set up several semi-quantitative and quantitative scoring systems of musculoskeletal ultrasound for more accurate evaluation of inflammatory arthritis, and high associations between these systems and disease activity were confirmed.[sup][13],[17] Nevertheless, CDUS and PDUS have limited ability to detect the blood flow within small vessels.

In general terms, at 6 months structured mineralized tissue was observed in all the samples, with adequate vascularization and well distributed, with the presence of granulation tissue and inflammatory infiltrate when compared to the samples in group 1.
They address its history and epidemiology; access and nonaccess site bleeding; patient preparation and selection; vascularization, anatomy, and variants; radial vs.
Across the cornea OS, dense superficial and anterior stromal corneal vascularization was present and extended 2-3 mm from the limbus.
In two papers in the journal Diabetes and one each in Development and Cell Metabolism, the researchers described four main findings about islet vascularization and innervation:
The osteoinduction and osteogenesis of large tissue-engineered scaffold will not function because of absence of vascularization in the scaffold.
