TRAUMATIC ANEURYSM OF THORACIC AORTA
- AORTIC SADDLE EMBOLECTOMY IN THE EXTREMELY POOR RISK PATIENT. Colt, James D. // Angiology;Feb1965, Vol. 16 Issue 2, p67
Describes the femoral approach for removal of aortic embolic obstruction. Presentation of a case of a man with severe pain in both lower extremities; Signs and symptoms of aortic embolic obstruction; Advantages and disadvantages of aortic saddle embolectomy.
- ABDOMINAL AORTIC ANEURYSM WITH A HORSESHOE KIDNEY. Cox Jr., William L.; Machado, Gaston // Angiology;Jun1968, Vol. 19 Issue 6, p351
The seventh case of abdominal aneurysm associated with horseshoe kidney is reported herein. The sine qua non of resectability of the aneurysm is the renal vascular pattern. This must be determined by direct observation or by operative aortogram before aneurysmectomy.
- Statins: A Valuable Tool for the Prevention/Regression of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms. Paraskevas, Kosmas I.; Liapis, Christos D. // Vascular Disease Prevention;Jan2006, Vol. 3 Issue 1, p41
Abdominal aortic aneurysms are associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Wide controversy exists as to whether the detection of such conditions should be followed by immediate surgical management or, instead, a more conservative approach ("watchful waiting") should be adopted. Statin...
- Marfan's Syndrome and Abdominal Aortic Aneiirysm-- A Case Report. Nicholas, Gary G.; Stefanko, Karen E. // Vascular Surgery;Sep1991, Vol. 25 Issue 7, p576
This patient's course documents the successful repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm in a sixty-two-year-old man with Marfan's syndrome. Marfan's syndrome, a connective tissue disorder, is commonly associated with cardiovascular complications, including ascending aortic aneurysms and dissecting...
- Rupture of Excluded Popliteal Artery Aneurysm: Implications for Type II Endoleaks. Mousa, Albeir; Faries, Peter L.; Bernheim, Joshua; Dayal, Rajeev; Derubertis, Brian; Hollenbeck, Scott; Henderson, Peter; Mahanor, Elizabeth A.; Kent, K. Craig // Vascular & Endovascular Surgery;Nov/Dec2004, Vol. 38 Issue 6, p575
The fate of popliteal artery aneurysms after ligation and bypass is believed to be relatively innocuous. The patient presented in this report however, experienced spontaneous rupture of a popliteal aneurysm 11 years after ligation and bypass. Magnetic resonance angiography was used to establish...
- Aortic aneurysm. // Mayo Clinic Health Letter;Jun2005, Vol. 23 Issue 6, p1
Provides information about abdominal aortic aneurysm. Symptoms of the disease; Risk factors; Measures in avoiding aortic aneurysm rupture.
- Circulating stromelysin concentration is elevated in hypertensive aortic root dilatation. Barutcu, Irfan; Karakaya, Osman; Esen, Ali Metin; Dogan, Serkan; Saglam, Mustafa; Kargin, Ramazan; Karapinar, Hekim; Karavelioglu, Yusuf; Akgun, Taylan; Esen, Ozlem; Ozdemir, Nihal; Turkmen, Sembol; Kaymaz, Cihangir // Heart & Vessels;Mar2009, Vol. 24 Issue 2, p138
Accumulating data suggest that activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) is increased in aortic dissection, and in thoracic and abdominal aneurysms. In the present study we sought to determine circulating stromelysin (MMP-3) concentration and its relationship with hypertension-induced aortic...
- Surveillance strategies according to the rate of growth of small abdominal aortic aneurysms. Badger, Stephen A; Jones, Claire; McClements, Jane; Lau, Louis L; Young, Ian S; Patterson, Christopher C // Vascular Medicine;Nov2011, Vol. 16 Issue 6, p415
The management of small abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) is by ultrasound surveillance. The study aimed to calculate their growth rate, identify risk factors and determine appropriate screening intervals. The local screening programme and hospital records were used to identify patients with a...
- Endovascular Repair of Small Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms: A Paradigm Shift? Welborn III, M. Burress; Yau, Franklin S.; Modrall, J. Gregory; Lopez, Jorge A.; Floyd, Stephen; Valentine, R. James; Clagett, G. Patrick // Vascular & Endovascular Surgery;Sep/Oct2005, Vol. 39 Issue 5, p381
Recent reports have documented poor long-term results following endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of large abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), EVAR of small AAAs may result in improved long-term results compared to large AAAs. It is not known whether the frequency of anatomic suitability for...
