This is the first book that reviews vascular morphogenesis in the emerging field of reproductive vascular biology. It is divided into four parts reflecting the female reproductive organs (breast, ovary, uterus, and placenta) and the authors cover both the basic biological processes and the clinical significance of these processes. Vascular morphogenesis is vital for endometriosis, normal ovarian and placental function as well as the formation of reproductive tumors of the mammary gland, ovary and uterus. The book will interest vascular and reproductive biologists as well as cell and developmental biologists interested in angiogenesis.(intervillous * space) Invasion - - L al l | Zonel Zones II aamp; Ill Zone IV Zone V (b) Spiral artery Fully modified Partially modified - - Unmodified region region region Decidua Myometrium FIGURE 17.1.
