Analysis of aortic wall stress and rupture risk in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm with a gender perspective.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The most commonly used predictor of rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is the diameter; however, this does not estimate the true risk for each patient. Why women with AAAs have an increased growth rate, weaker aortic wall, and increased risk for rupture is yet unclear. It is likely that geometrical and biomechanical properties… (More)
