  • If thoracic aortic disease can be detected early and managed, it gives us the opportunity to select patients for surgical or endovascular repair when the patient is stable," said Loren F.

  • The patient had no history of drug abuse, invasive examination, thoracic aortic surgery, or trauma. (biomedcentral.com)
  • It is interesting to note that few of these endovascular procedures were used as a bridging procedure to definitive surgery, quite possibly because infections have apparently been arrested or controlled with antimicrobial therapy. (ahajournals.org)
  • An alternative explanation is that some or all of these patients were considered too frail to undergo major surgery, or that possibly, surgeons believe that the results of open surgery are no longer superior to an endovascular approach. (ahajournals.org)
  • New therapeutic strategies such as endovascular treatment and surgical techniques have appeared to improve conventional surgery in advanced phases of the disease, but until recently, medical treatment has focused on the control of cardiovascular risk factors using beta-blockers to reduce aortic wall stress by reducing blood pressure and heart rate.
