Cytokines and inflammatory pathways in the pathogenesis of multiple organ failure following abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.

Abstract

Multiple organ failure is a common mode of death following abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, particularly after rupture. Cytokines are the principal mediators of the inflammatory response to injury and high levels of circulating cytokines have been associated with poor outcome in major trauma and sepsis. Abdominal aortic aneurysm repair results in an… (More)
