  • congestive
  • If an aneurysm is large and close to the heart, it may affect the heart valves and lead to a condition called congestive heart failure. (hoag.org)
  • Abnormal calcification (hardened blockage due to cholesterol build up) in the main blood vessels and fluid in the lungs (possible indication of congestive heart failure) can also be seen. (imaginis.com)
  • 1 We describe a rare case of aortic aneurysm that caused congestive heart failure from compression of the left atrium. (bmj.com)
  • Peripheral
  • Common locations for peripheral aneurysms include the popliteal (pop-li-TE-al), femoral (FEM-o-ral), and carotid (ka-ROT-id) arteries. (nih.gov)
  • blood vessels
  • It extends up from the heart and branches off into blood vessels that supply blood to the head and arms. (uwhealth.org)
  • Echocardiography is often useful in studying the beating heart and provides some information on functional abnormalities of the heart wall, valves and blood vessels. (imaginis.com)
  • Patients with thoracic aortic disease also may have disease in other blood vessels, such as the vessels that carry blood to the head or the heart. (uwhealth.org)
  • Not everyone can be treated with an endovascular aneurysm repair because of the shape of the aneurysm or other blood vessels. (barnesjewish.org)
  • graft
  • Findings were confirmed during surgery and the patient was treated successfully by resection of coarctation segment as well as postcoarctation aneurysm with graft tube interposition. (bmj.com)
  • A graft is usually placed across the aneurysm with less invasive techniques being used more frequently. (chilternhillsheartclinic.com)
  • Endovascular
  • Not every patient can be treated with an endovascular aneurysm repair. (barnesjewish.org)
  • However, compared to open surgery, endovascular aneurysm repair often results in quicker recovery following surgery. (barnesjewish.org)
  • As one of the leading heart and vascular centers in the country, we also offer the opportunity for patients to participate in the latest endovascular trials. (barnesjewish.org)
  • This endovascular technique has been pioneered and extensively used by Heart & Vascular Center surgeons. (barnesjewish.org)
  • The vascular surgeons at the Heart & Vascular Center are using the latest techniques to increase the numbers of patients who can be treated with the endovascular technique. (barnesjewish.org)
  • surgeons
  • You are correct that a sinus of Valsalva aneurysm is a rare condition, but fortunately we have a number of cardiologists and cardiac surgeons here at Cleveland Clinic who are experienced with this disorder. (medhelp.org)
  • Initially surgeons had tried placing mechanical strain gauges on an aortic aneurysm as they manipulated it but found that the gauges themselves placed an unwelcome additional physical strain on the aortic aneurysm. (innovations-report.com)
  • One of the exciting benefits of this technique is that it will actually allow surgeons to explore a greater range of possible interventions and manipulations of an aneurysm and get a clear picture of the stresses created without the obvious risks that testing less conservative interventions would bring if they were tried out on the actual patient. (innovations-report.com)
  • He is also looking for support to develop another technique that would stretch the ability of current photoelectric stress analysis equipment to draw on the more limited reflective properties of the original aortic aneurysm which would provide surgeons with a real time monitor of the stress on the aneurysm as they operate. (innovations-report.com)
  • Some of the best results ever reported for open aortic aneurysm repair worldwide have come from the Heart & Vascular Center vascular surgeons. (barnesjewish.org)
  • By using special tools and techniques, surgeons can now repair an aneurysm from inside a blood vessel using x-ray images as guides. (barnesjewish.org)
  • Heart & Vascular Center vascular surgeons are experts in performing less invasive repair of aneurysms and have performed more than 1,000 cases using this technique. (barnesjewish.org)
  • Because of the experience and track-record, physicians throughout the region refer most complex AAA cases to the vascular surgeons at the Heart & Vascular Center. (barnesjewish.org)
  • The Sherman Heart and Vascular Center has an outstading staff of Cardiovascual Surgeons. (wordpress.com)
  • artery
  • It sounds like you are talking about a carotid artery aneurysm, by all that I've read. (healingwell.com)
  • Right heart catheterisation, however, disclosed a pulmonary artery pressure of 55/26 mm Hg (mean 43 mm Hg) and pulmonary capillary wedge mean pressure of 21 mm Hg. (bmj.com)

  • A ruptured brain aneurysm can cause a stroke . (nih.gov)
  • High blood pressure is a serious health concern that can cause heart disease and increase your risk of having a stroke. (abovetopsecret.com)
  • I am lucky that technology has improved so I am the first in the chain of stroke victims in the family to be diagnosed - NOW I NEED A CARDIAC SURGEON WHO WILL REPAIR MY DAMAGED HEART. (healingwell.com)
  • I have more consultations arranged but no confidence that I can avoid a premature death from stroke or heart failure. (healingwell.com)
  • arteries
  • had 2 stents put in, had a heart attack, & 2 100% blocked arteries. (healingwell.com)
  • The illustration shows a typical location of a brain aneurysm in the arteries that supply blood to the brain. (nih.gov)
  • But the minor of the two, they go in through the arteries in the groin and run a mesh like tubing (looks kind of like the inside or a garden hose) up to the aneurysm. (healingwell.com)
  • causes
  • Other causes include hypertension (high blood pressure), Marfan syndrome (genetic connective tissue disease), infectious diseases such as syphilis or tuberculosis, or possibly a genetic predisposition in the case of abdominal aortic aneurysm. (imaginis.com)
