Title:
Glucose metabolism in the vessel wall correlates with mechanical instability and inflammatory changes in a patient with a growing aneurysm of the abdominal aorta 
Abstract:
An extract of the first 250 words of the full text is provided, because this article has no abstract.

It has been shown by our group and by others1,2 that increased glucose metabolism in the aortic wall of patients with aneurysms of the abdominal aorta (AAA) can be visualized in vivo by 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET). Interestingly, an increased glucose metabolism in AAA wall was strongly associated with rapid progression or acute symptoms and therefore increased r...    »
