  • 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)
  • The revealing symptom was hypertension in 12 cases, thoracic or abdominal pain in 7, isolated inflammatory syndrome in 5, neurologic or ocular manifestations in 3, rupture in 3, and embolization to the lower extremity in 1. (biomedsearch.com)
  • These aortic abnormalities can be life-threatening as they can decrease blood flow to other parts of the body and/or cause the aorta to rupture. (nih.gov)
  • cardiac

  • The goal of this Vascular Medicine Fellowship is to provide integrated training in the diagnosis and clinical management of patients with non-cardiac vascular disease and to allow fellows to assume positions of academic leadership in the field of vascular medicine. (massgeneral.org)
  • Offering comprehensive coverage of CMR and the latest cardiology applications, this practical reference enhances the understanding of cardiac physiology and the interpretation and diagnosis of cardiovascular disease. (weltbild.de)
  • involve the descending tho
  • Our goal is to provide the healthcare professional with a better understanding of the pathophysiology of the various disease processes that involve the descending thoracic aorta and to review current outcomes and technical pitfalls associated with these therapies to facilitate strong, evidence-based decision making in the care of these patients.

  • Marfan Syndrome
  • 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)

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • complications
  • We also include a review of the literature about anesthetic management of endovascular aortic repair and present our opinions about the need to choose a suitable anesthetic technique for each patient, the method to recognize and handle the possible complications and hemodynamic changes to which we have to pay attention during procedures.
