  • Society of Thoracic Surgeons
  • They were developed in collaboration with the American Association for Thoracic Surgery (AATS), American College of Radiology (ACR), American Stroke Association (ASA), Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists (SCA), Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI), Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR), Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS), and Society for Vascular Medicine (SVM).

  • rupture
  • No stent graft-related complications were detected, although only in 1 case, an asymptomatic rupture of the Excluder connecting bar was found with a perforation of the fabric and an intra-aortic exposition of the bar itself. (ahajournals.org)
  • A break in all three layers of the aortic wall is termed a rupture. (harvard.edu)
  • In aortic rupture, all three layers of the aortic wall burst, resulting in massive bleeding inside the body. (medicalxpress.com)
  • The term 'complicated' means persisting or recurrent pain, uncontrolled hypertension despite full medication, early aortic expansion, malperfusion, and signs of rupture (hemothorax, increasing periaortic and mediastinal hematoma). (acc.org)
  • Thoracic aortic aneurysm is a common and lethal disease that requires regular imaging surveillance to determine timing of surgical repair and prevent major complications such as rupture. (tomography.org)
  • computed tomography
  • He was diagnosed with a thoracic aortic pseudoaneurysm secondary to brucellosis based on a positive brucella serology test (standard-tube agglutination test) and imaging examination (computed tomography angiography). (biomedcentral.com)
  • Current cross-sectional imaging surveillance techniques, largely based on computed tomography angiography, are focused on measurement of maximal aortic diameter, although this approach is limited to fixed anatomic positions and is prone to significant measurement error. (tomography.org)
  • This technique allows quantification of 3-dimensional changes in the aortic wall geometry through nonrigid coregistration of computed tomography angiography images and spatial Jacobian analysis of aortic deformation. (tomography.org)
  • hypertension
  • Specialists begin with a thorough evaluation, which details the patient's history of prior cardiovascular disease and hypertension as well as the history of the aortic condition itself. (massgeneral.org)
  • Richmond, Va. (June 20, 2011) Researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University Massey Cancer Center have revealed novel mechanisms in mitochondria that have implications for cancer as well as many other age-related diseases such as Parkinson's disease, heart disease and hypertension.

  • Marfan
  • Risk factors for TAD include poorly controlled high blood pressure, advancing age, male gender, atherosclerosis, inflammatory diseases that damage the blood vessels, and certain genetic conditions that weaken connective tissue, such as Marfan syndrome. (medicalxpress.com)
  • open aortic
  • We retrospectively analyzed consecutive 500 cases (male: 350, mean age: 62.9±13.2 years) of open aortic repair from 1986 to 2008 performed in our institute. (ahajournals.org)
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Moderator: Anxiety/Panic, Osteoarthritis, GERD/Heartburn and Heart/Cardiovascular Disease. (healingwell.com)
  • Although many people develop some form of cardiovascular disease (a catch-all term for all of the diseases affecting the heart and blood vessels) as they get older, it isn't inevitable. (harvard.edu)
  • A healthy lifestyle, especially when started at a young age, goes a long way to preventing cardiovascular disease. (harvard.edu)
