Structural Alterations of Mucosal Microvascular System in Human Chronic Gastritis
Chronic gastritis is an important pathological condition of the gastric mucosa because the disease is thought to develop a predisposition to other gastric diseases , including, most seriously, gastric carcinomas [2, 3]. Although a large amount of information concerning glandular epithelial changes of the stomach in chronic gastritis has accumulated , our knowledge of vascular stromal changes in the diseased condition is surprisingly limited. Since glandular epithelial components and their surrounding vascular stroma have been shown to be structurally and functionally closely related to each other in the normal gastric mucosa , it is clearly important to study vascular stromal changes in chronic gastritis where diverse alterations of structures and cellular differentiations of the gastric glands are observed .
