Introduction At present, the diameter of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is considered to be the primary indicator of rupture risk. Surgical treatment is usually performed if the diameter exceeds 5 cm. Rupture does however occur for diameters less than 5 cm. We therefore investigate if better rupture risk indicators can be obtained by patientspecific… CONTINUE READING
