Objective: It is well known that VEGFR expression is correlated with peritumoral brain edema in meningiomas. Also Aquaporin4 seems to induce the perifocal edema. In our study we analyzed the correlation of VEGFR1, VEGFR2 and Aquaporin4 to the brain edema. Additionally a potential correlation between[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
