Ultrasound Based Wall Stress Analysis of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms using Multiperspective Imaging

Current clinical guidelines for surgical repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) are primarily based on maximum diameter assessment. From a biomechanical point of view, not only the diameter but also peak wall stresses will play an important role in rupture risk assessment. These methods require patient specific geometry which typically uses computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging. Recently, wall stress analysis based on 3D ultrasound (US) has been proposed, and shows promising results.

AbstractDeubiquitinases (DUBs) are a major component of the ubiquitin-proteasome system in eukaryotic cells; the system plays a crucial role in many biological processes, such as inflammation, oxidative stress, and cell apoptosis, which are important in vascular biology and pathology. DUBs have drawn significant attention in recent years, and their function is increasingly linked with vascular diseases. In this review, we summarize the indirect and direct evidence for the effects of DUBs on atherosclerosis, abdominal aortic aneurysm, angiogenesis, and hypertension, and point out pathways that could be pursued for investiga...

Resumo O aneurisma de art éria poplítea (AAP) é o mais frequente dos aneurismas periféricos, correspondendo a 85% do total de aneurismas. Normalmente, são assintomáticos, e o diagnóstico, em geral, é feito por meio do exame físico, tendo uma maior incidência no sexo masculino e em idosos. São bilaterais em 50% dos casos e, em 60% das vezes, estão associados a aneurisma de aorta abdominal. Apresentamos um paciente do sexo masculino com 72 anos de idade, com duas massas pulsáteis em ambas as regiões poplíteas, assintom&aac...
