Atherosclerosis is the main cause of 435aortic aneurysms (23,24). The intima of the aorta shows massive fibrosis and calcification, and increased amounts of extracellular fatty acids. The integrity of this layer can be compromised by the extracellular matrix degraded by histiocytic cells, while additional degenerative changes can develop within the fibrous tissue. These mechanisms may lead to intimal rupture, most often at the edges of plaques. Intimal thickening increases the distance between the endothelial layer and the media, compromising the nutrient and oxygen supply.
