dc.description.abstractThe pathogenesis of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) remains poorly understood, however significant evidence has emerged in recent years to suggest a chronic inflammatory process. Observational studies have highlighted a familial trend towards AAA development among relatives of affected individuals and it is thought that inflammatory genes may influence an individual's susceptibility. Conflicting reports exist over single gene versus multiple gene inheritance patterns in addition to a collection of studies examining individual inflammatory genes. This paper reviews the evidence for a genetic predisposition to aneurysm formation including familial and segregation studies in addition to experimental evidence investigating specific candidate genes.-
