Inflammatory aneurysms (IAs) have peculiar macroscopic and histological aspects which make them very different from nonspecific aneurysms (NSAs). These morphological differences seem to be determined by significant modifications of the extracellular matrix. Extracellular matrix protein component concentrations were determined biochemically in infrarenal aortic biopsies from 10 NSAs, five IAs and five non-aneurysmal aortic controls. The concentration of each wall component was expressed in % w/w… CONTINUE READING
