Elasticity in the aortic wall was determined noninvasively by measuring the maximal and minimal external diameter of the pulsing thoracic aorta by use of cineradiography in combination with esophagography. Pulse wave velocity and the cross-sectional area were calculated from these values, and their relationship to aging and arteriosclerotic disease were evaluated. The changes of pulse wave velocity and cross-sectional area obtained by this method represent quantitatively the degrees of arteriosclerotic change and aging of the aortic wall.

    Over the past twenty years 365 cases of aneurysm of the aorta have been treated at the Presbyterian Hospital, and on analysis of the data, it is apparent that arteriosclerosis is assuming the major etiological role, and it is anticipated that syphilis will continue to decline as an etiology. The...

    We describe the case of a man incidentally found to have a pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta at the site of a previously (12 years ago) implanted metallic prosthetic aortic valve. Transthoracic echocardiography and computed tomography images demonstrate the pseudoaneurysm. The patient has...
