Title:
Interaction of biomechanics with extracellular matrix components in abdominal aortic aneurysm wall 
Abstract:
Objective: Little is known about interactions of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins with acting mechanical conditions and material macroscopic properties in abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). We investigated ECM components in correlation to corresponding biomechanical properties and loads in aneurysmatic arterial wall tissue. Methods: 54 tissue samples from 31 AAA patients (30♂; max. diameter Dmax 5.98±1.42 cm) were excised from the aneurysm sack. Samples were divided for corresponding immun...    »
