The creation of an infrarenal aneurysm within the native abdominal aorta of swine
Aortic Aneurysm, Abdominal
Disease Models, Animal
The creation of an infrarenal aneurysm is possible within the native aorta of swine. After aneurysm creation, progressive increase in aortic diameter was detectable. Further evaluation will be necessary to more completely characterize the nature and extent of elastase-induced porcine aortic aneurysmal degeneration.
