Abdominal aortic aneurysm is an abnormal dilatation, while acute aortic dissection is a delamination of the tunica media, forming a false lumen. Tenascin-C is a glycoprotein that can be found in situations involving tissue damage. The objective of this article is to evaluate whether Tenascin-C assays could be of use for predicting prognosis in abdominal aortic aneurysms and acute aortic dissection. We conducted an integrative literature review, for which four articles were considered eligible. Two of these studies associated higher Tenascin-C levels with protective factors and lower risk of injury, whereas the other two correlated them with worse prognosis. Some authors believe that Tenascin-C could be a candidate biomarker, but these studies are still inconclusive with regard to its role in the clinical outcomes of patients with aneurysms.
