Abnormal or excessive formation of blood vessels as in some retinal disorders.
(nee-oh-VAS-kyu-lur-ih-ZAY-shun): Abnormal formation of new blood vessels, usually in or under the retina or on the iris surface. May develop in diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration.
the creation of new pathways for blood supply
The formation of new blood vessels, often fragile and inappropriate for the location. Long-term use of contact lenses can starve the cornea of oxygen, causing neovascularization as the body attempts to provide oxygen through blood vessels.
new blood vessel formation.
Abnormal formation of new blood vessels usually on or under the retina, usually seen in diabetic retinopathy, blockages of central retinal vision and macular degeneration.
The formation of new blood vessels; often occurs in inappropriate sites.
The formation of new blood vessels. Are caused by a lack of oxygen such as with contact lens wear, or conditions like diabetes. They are not good, since they may interfere with vision or bleed easily, which can lead to scarring inside the eye.
Proliferation of blood vessels in tissue not normally containing them.
Growth of new blood vessels
Proliferation of blood vessels in tissues not normally containing them or proliferation of blood vessels of a different kind than usual in tissue.
The term used when new, tiny blood vessels grow in a new place, for example, out from the retina. See also: Diabetic retinopathy.
New, abnormal blood vessels. This occurs in AMD, retinopathy of prematurity, and proliferative diabetic retinopathy. See the Macular Degeneration FAQ ("What is neovascularization?").
Neovascularization is the formation of functional microvascular networks with red blood cell perfusion.
