Primarily affecting elderly males, abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) result in more than 15,000 deaths in the U.S. each year. This volume contains 28 full-length contributions by international specialists plus 20 more short papers, all discussing the pathobiology of AAA disease. It is organized into five main sections, dealing with epidemiology and rupture prevention; animal models; enzymology and pharmacology; biological aspects of endovascular devices to repair AAA; and genetics and immunology. The papers were originally presented at an April 2006 conference sponsored by the New York Academy of Sciences with the Columbia U. College of Physicians and Surgeons. The volume lacks a subject index.
