Abstract:
The widely accepted hypothesis that mechanobiological transduction plays a central role in pathogenesis of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is plausible, but so far was never directly proven in vivo at the organ level for methodical reasons. At present, stresses and strains acting in AAA wall can be assessed by computational finite element analyses (FEM) [1,2]. Independently, it has also been reported that glycolytic activity in AAA wall non-invasively assessed by [18F]flourodeoxyglucos...    »
