Correction to: SPECT/CT imaging of apoptosis in aortic aneurysm with radiolabeled duramycin
The original version of this article unfortunately contains errors in Figure 4. An incorrect Figure 4D is published which is actually a repetition of Figure 2C (i.e., apoptosis rate in control vs. H2O2-treated group). The correct Figure 4D should be the aortic diameter of control vs. experimental groups. Also, the order of part figures (a\b\c\d) in Figure 4E is incorrect. The correct Figure 4 is given below.
AbstractPurposeWe investigated the etiology and impact on outcomes of polycystic kidney disease in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm.MethodsEight-hundred patients who underwent open (n = 603) or endovascular aortic repair (n = 197) were divided into three groups: no cyst (n = 204), non-polycystic kidney (n = 503), and polycystic kidney (≥ 5 cysts in the bilateral kidneys,n = 93). The characteristics and outcomes were compared among the groups.ResultsIn the polycystic kidney group, the age was increased and the proportions of patients with...

Numerous studies have shown a paradoxical protective effect of diabetes on the development and progression of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). The aim of this study was to investigate whether the protective role of diabetes on AAA extends to rupture, given the presence of an AAA.
AbstractRupture with fistulization of an abdominal aortic aneurysm with the vena cava is a rare complication and typically presents with congestive cardiac failure. Embolization of a thrombus from the aneurysm into the vena cava can however present in the absence of failure symptoms which can make it difficult to diagnose clinically without cross sectional imaging.
Authors: Lareyre F, Carlier M, Raffort J Abstract The presence of accessory renal artery is a frequent anatomic variation that can challenge abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair. Here, we show an image of an abdominal aortic aneurysm extended to multiple accessory renal arteries in a patient known for an end-stage renal failure. This case raises the questions of the criteria that should be taken in consideration for an optimal management of accessory renal artery during AAA repair.

Abstract Elastin is a key structural protein and its pathological degradation deterministic in aortic aneurysm (AA) outcomes. Unfortunately, using current diagnostic and clinical surveillance techniques the integrity of the elastic fiber network can only be assessed invasively. To address this, we employed fragmented elastin-targeting gold nanoparticles (EL-AuNPs) as a diagnostic tool for the evaluation of unruptured AAs. Electron dense EL-AuNPs were visualized within AAs using micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) and the corresponding Gold-to-Tissue volume ratios quantified. The Gold-to-Tissue volume ratios corre...
