We have previously shown that abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) rupture occurs in regions of low wall shear stress, where flow recirculation and intraluminal thrombus (ILT) deposition predominate. We planned to analyze differential matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)12, and interleukin (IL)-6 levels in human AAA tissue. We hypothesized that AAA with higher ILT will have greater macrophage-mediated elastolytic activity, thus, contributing to the differential in sides of the AAA that rupture.

Evidence for the use of neuraxial anesthesia (NA) in the context of open abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair is sparse. The purpose of this study was to determine the 90-day outcomes of combined general and NA versus general anesthesia without neuraxial (GA) for elective open AAA repair.

Abstract OBJECTIVES: With a focus on renal function, the goal of this multicentre study was to assess peri-operative complications and late mortality of open surgical repair (OSR) of juxtarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms (JRAAA). METHODS: From February 2005 to December 2015, 315 consecutive patients undergoing elective OSR of a JRAAA in five French academic centres were evaluated retrospectively. The definition of JRAAA was an aortic aneurysm extending up to but not involving the renal arteries, i.e., a short neck

Conclusions: Nearly half of rAAA patients have a door-to-intervention time longer than recommended societal guidelines. Sex differences in mortality after rAAA repair seem to be driven by in-hospital treatment delays.
