• Recent studies have shown perindopril to be powerful in controlling and even reversing aortic root dilatation. (medhelp.org)
  • also known as transcatheter aortic valve replacement or TAVR) as an alternative to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) is evolving. (uptodate.com)
  • Indications for aortic valve replacement, surgical aortic valve replacement, estimating the risk of aortic valve surgery, medical therapy of symptomatic AS, and percutaneous aortic valvuloplasty are discussed separately. (uptodate.com)
  • sources available in Appendix 1, at www.cmaj.ca/lookup/suppl/doi:10.1503/cmaj.150194/-/DC1 ), the patient was not considered a suitable candidate for surgical aortic valve replacement and was referred for transcatheter aortic valve implantation. (cmaj.ca)
  • These problems, along with the wear and tear that naturally occurs with aging, can result in a weak aortic wall that bulges outward. (cigna.com)
  • Do You think about Syphilis (lues) as once of causes of aortic aneyrism? (bmj.com)
  • In addition, the VQI is limited in its ability to provide some aneurysm-specific anatomic details such as the presence of aortic thrombus, access vessel size, and certain concomitant procedures. (medscape.com)
  • There are three common variations in how arteries branch from the aortic arch. (wikipedia.org)
  • Aortic compliance in normotensive and hypertensive Chinese subjects undergoing diagnostic cardiac catheterization was compared by using a newly described method that allows for determination of the pressure dependence of compliance if one assumes a value for the exponential coefficient of the pressure-volume relation of the large arteries. (ahajournals.org)
  • Balloon valvuloplasty -A balloon device is passed through the arteries to open the aortic valve or make it bigger. (epnet.com)
  • The aortic arches or pharyngeal arch arteries (previously referred to as branchial arches in human embryos) are a series of six paired embryological vascular structures which give rise to the great arteries of the neck and head. (wikipedia.org)
  • The aortic arches are formed sequentially within the pharyngeal arches and initially appear symmetrical on both sides of the embryo, but then undergo a significant remodelling to form the final asymmetrical structure of the great arteries. (wikipedia.org)
  • Most defects of the great arteries arise as a result of persistence of aortic arches that normally should regress or regression of arches that normally shouldn't. (wikipedia.org)
