Metalloproteinase-9 and neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin plasma and tissue levels evaluation in middle cerebral artery aneurysms.


Background. Cerebral aneurysms are relatively common in adults, with a prevalence ranging between 1% and 5%. Subarachnoid hemorrhage, following aneurismal rupture, is a major cause of death and disability in these patients. Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs) and Neutrophil Gelatinase-Associated Lipocalin (NGAL) seem to be involved in the pathogenesis and in… (More)
