PURPOSE In vitro studies have recently demonstrated that homocysteine interacts with the aortic wall by inducing both elastolysis and endothelial perturbation. The aim of this study was to evaluate homocysteine plasma levels and their relationships with aortic diameter and endothelial damage in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm.
