Tissue inhibitors of MMP (TIMP) have also been shown to play a role in preventing aneurysm rupture [47]. Since MMPs are known key players in angiogenesis, the pathological role of this process in aneurysm rupture was further investigated. Choke et al showed that there was increased medial neovascularisation and over-expression of pro-angiogenic cytokines in the rupture site of AAA compared to non-ruptured controls [48]. Another enzyme thought to play a pivotal role in extracellular matrix proteolysis is plasmin [49].

Gen Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 55:377–399 Evolving Medical Therapy for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms Rajdeep Deb, Hosaam H. Nasr, Ranjeet Brar, and Matthew M. Thompson Summary Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAAs) affect 5%–10% of men over 65 years. Ultrasound screening has been shown to reduce mortality. Its implementation will increase the incidence of newly diagnosed asymptomatic AAAs, but ninety percent of screen detected lesions are below current thresholds for elective surgical repair.

Furthermore, aortic aneurysm was prevented by the administration of losartan, an angiotensin II type 1 receptor blocker that alleviates increased TGF-β activity in mouse models [23]. Thus even in human, losartan may be expected to prevent aortic aneurysm in MFS. Genetic Study for Aortic Dissection Finally, genetic study of aortic dissection is discussed. In the annual report of the Japanese association for thoracic surgery, about 4125 cases of dissecting aneurysms were surgically operated in 2005 [26].
