Vascular Surgical Procedures
• Coronary artery disease (CAD) causes local hypoxia due to reduced blood flow
• Hypoxic conditions are known to induce vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) production, a key contributor to angiogenesis
• The purpose of this study was to determine the potential of VEGF as a marker of myocardial stress in subjects with CAD undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery
