原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Plasma levels of PIIINP a marker of extracellular matrix metabolism activity have been linked to abdominal aortic aneurysm growth rate, but its relationship with thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) growth has never previously been studied.(#br)Objective(#br)To demonstrate the value of assay of “aminoterminal propeptide of type III procollagen” (PIIINP) to predict the growth of ascending TAA.(#br)Methods and results(#br)Thirty consecutive patients with asymptomatic ascending TAA were recruited and PIIINP was measured. The patients were then followed up in the usual way, by annual imaging tests. The patients were then divided into two groups: Group 1=patients with a stable TAA or with a slow growth rate (≤2...
