Objectives: Based on a neovascularization study conducted using specific phosphodiesterase inhibitors in the literature, the aim of the present study was to answer the question "As specific phosphodiesterase inhibitors have positive or negative effects on angiogenesis, what kind of an effect does pentoxiphylline, which is a phosphodiesterase inhibitor, have on angiogenesis?" by using chorioallantoic membrane model.
