ATRA reduces the maximum diameter of the abdominal aorta but not body weight. a Body weight and abdominal aortic diameter. No statistically significant difference in body weight was noted. b There were no significant differences in body weight between the groups. c: Abdominal aortic diameter. Ang II infusion increased the aortic diameter in the AAA group. Compared with the AAA group, the aortic diameter was conspicuously decreased in the ATRA group. (AAA group, n = 9; ATRA group, n = 11). Data are the mean ± SD. *P < 0.05 vs. Sham and Control group, #P < 0.05 vs. AAA group
