Previous findings vary regarding the timing and cause of elastin fiber degeneration in the elastaseinduced rat abdominal aortic aneurysm model. We examined the timing and cause of elastin fiber degeneration after elastase infusion using two different elastase infusion times. Twenty-four Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into two groups. The infrarenal(More)
This study was conducted to investigate whether systemic immunosuppression attenuated aortic dilatation in a rat aneurysm model. Sprague-Dawley rats were subjected to elastase infusion of the infrarenal aorta and divided into two groups of 12 rats each. The immunosuppression group (group 1) was given subcutaneous injections of cyclosporine A (5 mg/kg per(More)
