Abstract

The causes of abdominal aortic aneurysm are still poorly understood. The author studied the permeability of the aneurysm wall or the aortic wall in 21 patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm or aorto-iliac bypass by comparing 125I-albumin tissue concentrations; The results suggest that albumin crosses the aneurysm wall less easily than that of the atheromatous aorta.

Aneurysm

Aneurysms are outward distensions or bulges that occurs in a weakened wall of blood vessels. Discover the latest research on aneurysms here.

Aortic Aneurysm

An aortic aneurysm is the weakening and bulging of the blood vessel wall in the aorta. This causes dilatation of the aorta, which is usually asymptomatic but carries the risk of rupture and hemorrhage. Find the latest research on aortic aneurysms here.

Atherosclerosis Disease Progression

Atherosclerosis is the buildup of plaque on artery walls, causing stenosis which can eventually lead to clinically apparent cardiovascular disease. Find the latest research on atherosclerosis disease progression here.
