Abstract: Endothelial dysfunction is a trigger for the formation of cerebral aneurysm (CA). The circulating endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) plays an important role in postnatal vasculogenesis and reduction of endothelial injury. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that decreased number and impaired function of circulating EPCs correlate with CA formation in patients. Blood circulating EPCs were identified by flow cytometry. The level of plasma vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) was measured by ELISA. Circul… Show more
