[Extract] We read with interest the recent publication by Ito et al. The investigators note that the risk profiles for patients with thoracic aneurysms and abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) are distinct. In particular, they note that coronary artery disease, emphysema, and diabetes are more common in patients with AAAs than in those with thoracic aneurysms. In the "Discussion" section of their report, Ito et al postulate that diabetes promotes matrix metalloproteinase production, explaining its association with AAA.
