Flow mediated dilatation over the natural history of abdominal aortic aneurysms

Abstract:

Abdominal aortic aneurysm, an abnormal dilatation of the descending aorta, disproportionately affects males and is often asymptomatic until rupture, posing major risk of mortality. The natural history varies greatly in individuals; some patients remain at subclinical aortic diameters for decades, others rapidly progress to sizes indicating surgical intervention. Surgical mortality is associated with age, so it is advantageous to predict growth of AAA. The biochemical implications of wall d...
