Abstract:

The introduction of ultrasound screening combined with the increasingly elderly population means that the number of small abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) detected is expected to increase over the next decade. At present open or endovascular surgery are the only treatment options for AAA. In this mini-review we discuss the rationale and ongoing attempts to develop non-surgical therapies for AAA.
