ABO blood groups and abdominal aortic aneurysm.
2012 (English)In: Transfusion and apheresis science, ISSN 1473-0502, E-ISSN 1878-1683, Vol. 47, no 3, 351-3 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Earlier studies have indicated an association between blood group non-O and atherosclerosis related vascular diseases. Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is traditionally regarded as a consequence of atherosclerosis. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between ABO blood groups and AAA with special regard to a relation to AAA rupture. Prospectively, 504 patients operated on for AAA were investigated. Patients operated on for AAA have similar ABO blood group distributions as a population based control group. Furthermore, there was no significant difference in distribution of ABO blood group between patients operated on for ruptured AAA (n=174) and non-ruptured AAA (n=330). In conclusion, this study fails to demonstrate an association between ABO blood groups and AAA.
