RATIONALE Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are associated with life-threatening complications. The likelihood that an AAA will rupture is influenced by the aneurysm diameter and its expansion rate; reasons for rapid expansion are largely unknown. OBJECTIVES To determine the prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in patients with AAA, and investigate(More)
OBJECTIVE Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a life-threatening disease as rupture of the aneurysm is associated with high mortality. The likelihood that an AAA will rupture is particularly influenced by the diameter of the aneurysm and the rate of expansion; the reasons for fast expansion are largely unknown. Applanation tonometry (APT) can predict outcome(More)
