Title:
Interaction of Biomechanics with Extracellular Matrix Components in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Wall 
Abstract:
Objective: Little is known about the interactions between extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins and locally acting mechanical conditions and material macroscopic properties in abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). In this study, ECM components were investigated with correlation to corresponding biomechanical properties and loads in aneurysmal arterial wall tissue. Methods: Fifty-four tissue samples from 31 AAA patients (30♂; max. diameter Dmax 5.98 ± 1.42 cm) were excised from the aneurysm sa...    »
