Abdominal aortic aneurysm
If detected before rupture, a dangerously large abdominal aortic aneurysm can usually be surgically repaired. Wikipedia
SNPs reported to affect risk of abdominal aortic aneurysm include:
- rs7025486 (risk allele A)
- rs1799889 (the risk genotype is the 5G insertion)
- rs1800796 (risk allele C)
Some SNPs that were formerly thought to affect risk of AAA appear to have no effect.
