Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms: selecting patients for surgery. (1/892)

OBJECTIVES: Mortality from ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (RAAA) remains high. Despite this, withholding surgery on poor-prognosis patients with RAAA may create a difficult dilemma for the surgeon. Hardman et al. identified five independent, preoperative risk factors associated with mortality and proposed a model for preoperative patient selection. The aim of this study was to test the validity of the same model in an independent series of RAAA patients. METHODS: A consecutive series of patients undergoing surgery for RAAA was analysed retrospectively by case-note review. Thirty-day operative mortality and the presence of the five risk factors: age (> 76 years), creatinine (Cr) (> 190 mumol/l), haemoglobin (Hb) (< 9 g/dl), loss of consciousness and electrocardiographic (ECG) evidence of ischaemia were recorded for each patient. RESULTS: Complete data sets existed for 69 patients (mean age: 73 years, range: 38-86 years, male to female ratio: 6:1). Operative mortality was 43%. The cumulative effect of 0, 1 and 2 risk factors on mortality was 18%, 28% and 48%, respectively. All patients with three or more risk factors died (eight patients). CONCLUSIONS: These results lend support to the validity of the model. The potential to avoid surgery in patients with little or no chance of survival would spare unnecessary suffering, reduce operative mortality and enhance use of scarce resources.  (+info)

Repair of ruptured thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm is worthwhile in selected cases. (2/892)

INTRODUCTION: The risks and benefits of operating on patients with ruptured thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) have not been defined. The aim of the present study is to report this unit's experience with operations performed for ruptured TAAA over a 10-year period. METHODS: Interrogation of a prospectively gathered computerised database. PATIENTS: Between 1 January 1983 and 30 June 1996, 188 consecutive patients with TAAA were operated on, of whom 23 (12%) were operated for rupture. RESULTS: There were nine survivors (40%). Patients whose preoperative systolic blood pressure remained above 100 mmHg were significantly more likely to survive (4/8 vs. 13/15, p = 0.03 by Fisher's exact test). Survival was also related to Crawford type: type I (two of three survived); II (none of six); III (two of six); and IV (five of eight). All non-type II, non-shocked patients survived operation. Survivors spent a median of 28 (range 10-66) postoperative days in hospital, of which a median of 6 (range 2-24) days were spent in the intensive care unit. Survivor morbidity comprised prolonged ventilation (> 5 days) (n = 3); tracheostomy (n = 1); and temporary haemofiltration (n = 2). No survivor developed paraplegia or required permanent dialysis. CONCLUSIONS: Patients in shock with a Crawford type II aneurysm have such a poor prognosis that intervention has to be questioned except in the most favourable of circumstances. However, patients with types I, III and IV who are not shocked on presentation can be salvaged and, where possible, should be transferred to a unit where appropriate expertise and facilities are available.  (+info)

Rupture of aortic aneurysm with right-sided haemothorax. (3/892)

A 62-yr-old male with a history of high blood pressure was admitted for persistent dyspnoea and a right-sided pleural effusion, complicated by a recent episode of shock. There was no history of trauma and the patient denied any thoracic pain. A chest tube was inserted which released nonclotting bloody fluid. A thoracic computed tomographic scan of the chest revealed an aneurysm of the inferior third of the descending thoracic aorta. The patient underwent a successful prosthetic graft replacement. We emphasize that rupture of aortic aneurysms should be considered in the evaluation of spontaneous haemothorax even if it is right-sided and not associated with pain.  (+info)

Frame dislocation of body middle rings in endovascular stent tube grafts. (4/892)

OBJECTIVES: To understand the cause, and propose a mechanism for frame dislocation in endovascular grafts. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Five tube grafts were explanted due to secondary distal leakage 15-21 months after operation. One bifurcated graft was removed during emergency operation after aortic rupture caused by secondary leakage. A second bifurcated graft was harvested from a patient with thrombotic occlusion of one limb, who died after transurethral prostatic resection. The inside of the grafts were examined endoscopically. The stent was inspected after removal of the fabric, broken ligatures were counted and examined by scanning electron microscopy. The fabric strength was tested by probe puncture. RESULTS: We found 17-44% of the stent ligatures of the body middle rings to be loose. The knots were intact. Degradation of the polyester textile was not observed. CONCLUSIONS: Continuous movements in the grafted aorta and blood pressure impose permanent stress to the stent frame and the polyester fabric resulting in morphological changes in the body middle ring of grafts. The clinical implications of the suture breakages are unknown although they may be related to distal secondary leakage in tube grafts.  (+info)

Acute renal impairment due to a primary aortocaval fistula is normalised after a successful operation. (5/892)

OBJECTIVES: To study renal function in patients with aortocaval fistula, before and after surgery. DESIGN: Retrospective study. MATERIAL AND METHODS: During the last 22 years nine male patients (median age 67, age range 50-72) with spontaneous aortocaval fistula in combination with AAA were operated upon. This constitutes 4% of the patients with ruptured AAA and 1.5% of all patients with AAA. RESULTS: A preoperative diagnosis of aortocaval fistula was established in three of the nine cases. The medium duration of symptoms prior to surgery was 5 days (range 4 h-14 days). The fistula was combined with an extravasating ruptured AAA in only three patients. Seven of the patients had acute renal insufficiency, with creatinine levels of in median 292 mumol (IQR 218-342). Creatinine declined to 172 mumol/l (IQR 170-313) on the fifth postoperative day in uncomplicated cases and to 86 mumol at discharge. One patient died due to multi-organ failure, whereas the other left hospital well and alive with normal renal function. CONCLUSION: Acute preoperative renal insufficiency due to an aortocaval fistula in patients with AAA is often due to venous congestion, and is normalised after successful surgery.  (+info)

Mortality in ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms. The Finnvasc Study Group. (6/892)

OBJECTIVE: To assess mortality related to rupture of abdominal aortic aneurysm (RAAA). DESIGN: A 4-year cross-sectional study based on a nationwide vascular registry Finnvasc and national cause-of-death registry (Statistics Finland). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 454 operations for RAAA among 11,747 surgical vascular reconstructions recorded in the Finnvasc registry and 1004 deaths due to RAAA during the same period based on Statistics Finland. RESULTS: The operative mortality rate was 49% based on the Finnvasc registry and 54% based on Statistics Finland. With all RAAA deaths at hospitals included, total hospital mortality was 68%. No association existed between hospital volume of RAAA operations and surgical mortality, although an inverse association did exist between hospital volume of RAAA operations and all RAAA deaths in the hospital (p = 0.01). The case fatality for RAAA in Finland was 80%. CONCLUSIONS: RAAA surgical mortality calculations for RAAA, based on a vascular registry, underestimate the true rate because some cases with fatal outcome tend to escape registration. Because surgical mortality rates may also be skewed by patient selection, total hospital RAAA mortality thus represents the results of RAAA treatment more accurately.  (+info)

Chronic aneurysm of the descending thoracic aorta presenting with right pleural effusion and left phrenic paralysis. (7/892)

A 62-year-old man was admitted to the emergency department with chronic dysphagia and lower back pain. Chest radiography revealed a wide mediastinal shadow and an elevated left diaphragm, which proved to be secondary to left phrenic paralysis. The patient was diagnosed with an aneurysm of the descending thoracic aorta and was admitted to the hospital. After the patient was admitted, the aneurysm ruptured into the right chest. The patient underwent an emergency operation to replace the ruptured segment with a synthetic graft. Postoperative recovery and follow-up were uneventful. This report describes an unusual presentation of a thoracic aortic aneurysm. Hemidiaphragmatic paralysis caused by compression of the phrenic nerve is an unusual complication that, to our knowledge, has not been previously reported.  (+info)

Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm in the Huntingdon district: a 10-year experience. (8/892)

A study was undertaken to establish the true incidence of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (RAAA) in the Huntingdon districts. RAAAs in the Huntingdon district between 1986 and 1995 were studied retrospectively. Data were collected from hospital records and hospital and community autopsies. There was a total of 139 cases of RAAA; 119 were males and 20 females, giving a M:F ratio of 6:1. The incidence of RAAAs was 17.8/100,000 person years (py) in males and 3.0/100,000 py in females. Mean age at rupture was 75.5 years in men (95% confidence intervals (CI) 74-78 years) and 80.2 in women (95% CI 78.8-83 years). There was an age-specific increase in incidence after the age of 65 years in men and after 80 years in women, although 12.6% of all RAAAs occurred in men under 65 years. In all, 100 patients were confirmed to have died of RAAA during the 10-year period. This represents 79% of all ruptures discovered. Almost three-quarters of patients did not reach the operating theatre. Of the 61 patients operated on, 29 survived (48%). The size of the aneurysm at rupture was recorded in 68 cases (49%). The mean size was 8.14 cm (SD 2.0 cm). In five cases (7.4%), rupture occurred in AAAs smaller than 6 cm. The overall mortality from RAAA in Huntingdon health district is approximately 80% and three-quarters of all deaths occurred without an operation.  (+info)

The condition is difficult to detect and may go unnoticed, because many patients have no specific symptoms. Diagnosis is further complicated by the fact that many patients with the injury experienced multiple other serious injuries as well,[10] so the attention of hospital staff may be distracted from the possibility of aortic rupture. In fact most cases occur along with other injuries.[4] A common symptom is unusually high blood pressure in the upper body and very low blood pressure in lower limbs. Another symptom is renal failure where the creatinine level shoots very high and urine output becomes negligible. In most cases, however, the doctors would misinterpret renal failure as due to issues with the kidney itself and may recommend dialysis. Though not completely reliable, chest X-rays are the first-line treatment,[4] initially used to diagnose this condition when the patient is unstable and cannot be sent to the CT bay. The preferred method of diagnosis used to be CT angiogram until it was ...
As you mentioned in your letter, if an abdominal aortic aneurysm ruptures, the mortality rate is very high - at least 50 percent, even if surgery is done promptly. Therefore, it is always better to repair them before they rupture. The trick is in figuring out which ones are most likely to rupture, since the surgery is complicated and people with these aneurysms are often elderly and have other medical problems that make them poor surgical risks.. The normal abdominal aorta measures no more than 2 centimeters in diameter on ultrasound. Anything larger would be considered an aneurysm, but aneurysms smaller than 4 cm in diameter rarely rupture. A recent Mayo Clinic study reported no ruptures of aneurysms smaller than 4 centimeters; one percent per year for aneurysms 4-5 centimeters in diameter; and 11 percent per year for aneurysms 5-6 centimeters in diameter. Another text that I checked reported a slightly higher rupture rate of aneurysms larger than 4 centimeters.. So the decision to do surgery ...

N2 - Background: The implications of intraluminal thrombus (ILT) in abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) are currently unclear. Previous studies have demonstrated that ILT provides a biomechanical advantage by decreasing wall stress, whereas other studies have associated ILT with aortic wall weakening. It is further unclear why some aneurysms rupture at much smaller diameters than others. In this study, we sought to explore the association between ILT and risk of AAA rupture, particularly in small aneurysms. Methods: Patients were retrospectively identified and categorized by maximum aneurysm diameter and rupture status: small (,60 mm) or large (≥60 mm) and ruptured (rAAA) ...
Introduction: Smoking cessation is one of the few available strategies to decrease the risk for expansion and rupture of small abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). The cost-effectiveness of an intensive smoking cessation therapy in patients with small AAAs identified at screening was evaluated. Methods: A Markov cohort simulation model was used to compare an 8-week smoking cessation intervention with adjuvant pharmacotherapy and annual revisits vs nonintervention among 65-year-old male smokers with a small AAA identified at screening. The smoking cessation rate was tested in one-way sensitivity analyses in the intervention group (range, 22%-57%) and in the nonintervention group (range, 3%-30%). Literature data on the effect of smoking on AAA expansion and rupture was factored into the model. Results: The intervention was cost-effective in all tested scenarios and sensitivity analyses. The smoking cessation intervention was cost-effective due to a decreased need for AAA repair and decreased rupture ...

An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is when the lower part of the aorta becomes enlarged, like a balloon. The aorta is the largest artery in the body. It carries blood from the heart down along the backbone where it splits into many smaller arteries that bring blood to all of the organs. Aneurysm is a general term that describes an enlargement of any blood vessel in the body. Aneurysms usually develop slowly over time and may not cause problems until they become so enlarged that they can rupture.. Smaller AAAs generally do not cause symptoms. Larger AAAs can cause symptoms such as a pulsating feeling near the belly button, deep and constant abdominal pain, or back pain. Rupture of an aortic aneurysm is a medical emergency. If an aortic aneurysm ruptures, symptoms include vomiting, intense pain, excessive sweating, a drop in blood pressure, fainting, and shortness of breath.. AAAs can be caused by stiffening of the artery walls due to plaque build up (atherosclerosis), infection of the aorta, or ...
Long-term outcome of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm: impact of treatment and age Jelle W Raats,1 Hans C Flu,1 Gwan H Ho,1 Eelco J Veen,1 Louwerens D Vos,2 Ewout W Steyerberg,3 Lijckle van der Laan1 1Department of Surgery, Amphia Hospital, Breda, 2Department of Radiology, Amphia Hospital, Breda, 3Department of Public Health, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, the Netherlands Background: Despite advances in operative repair, ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) remains associated with high mortality and morbidity rates, especially in elderly patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of emergency endovascular aneurysm repair (eEVAR), conventional open repair (OPEN), and conservative treatment in elderly patients with rAAA.Methods: We conducted a retrospective study of all rAAA patients treated with OPEN or eEVAR between January 2005 and December 2011 in the vascular surgery department at Amphia Hospital, the Netherlands. The outcome in patients treated for rAAA by eEVAR or OPEN repair
Despite encouraging results from the biomechanical AAA rupture risk assessment [12-16], the uncertainty of biomechanical predictions due to the uncertainty of input information remains a challenging limitation. Like other failure events, AAA rupture is also complex and a probabilistic risk assessment could have some advantages over a purely deterministic approach. We applied a well-established probabilistic method [36] and introduced PRRI, a novel and straightforward probabilistic AAA rupture risk indicator. Most important, PRRI discriminated better between ruptured and intact AAA cases than the state-of-the-art deterministic biomechanical method (discriminative power of 0.837 versus 0.673), and reached, although only for our very small cohort, statistical significance (p = 0.041 compared to p = 0.328 for PWRI from A4clinics Research Edition). A4clinics Research Edition proportionally adjusts the wall thickness to the patients blood pressure, such that the elevated blood pressure in our ...

Despite ongoing efforts, an efficient tool for accurate estimation of AAA rupture risk is still not available. Furthermore, a lack of standardisation across current approaches and specific obstacles within computational workflows limit the translation of existing methods to the clinic. This paper presents BioPARR (Biomechanics based Prediction of Aneurysm Rupture Risk), a software system to facilitate the analysis of AAA using a finite element analysis based approach. Except semi-automatic segmentation of the AAA and ...
We report the effect of kinin agonist and antagonist peptides on experimental aortic aneurysm. In vivo and in vitro data are presented to support a contributing role for B2R signaling in aortic wall weakening.. Medical treatment for aortic aneurysm aims to limit the main complication of aneurysm rupture. Aneurysm diameter is an important clinical indicator of rupture risk for AAA and is routinely used in the selection of patients for surgical intervention.25 We used the AngII-infused ApoE−/− mouse model of aortic aneurysm in which arterial inflammation and breaks in medial elastic lamellae lead to acute aortic rupture in ≈30% of mice.26 This model allowed the assessment of both survival free from aortic rupture and maximum aortic diameter. The main findings of this study were that administration of a B2R agonist enhanced the response to AngII and increased aortic rupture in our mouse model, whereas a B2R antagonist reduced aortic dilatation and rupture.. The findings of our study align ...
Any time you experience chest pain just not right in your chest, consult a medical professional. If you notice a strong pulse sensation, or a pulsating bulge in your abdomen, you should see your health care provider right away. If the pain is new, severe, frightening, or feels to be tearing or ripping, go immediately to a hospital emergency department. Do not wait it out; immediate treatment can be life saving for aneurysm/dissection as well as in other conditions that cause chest pain. If an aortic aneurysm ruptures, internal bleeding occurs. This is a medical emergency, because a person can bleed to death in a few minutes. Severe back, flank, or Abdominal pain may be the only symptom of an enlarging aorta. Many other conditions can cause these symptoms, but an aortic aneurysm is the most serious of these conditions. ...
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) rupture represents a major cardiovascular risk, combining complex vascular mechanisms weakening the abdominal artery wall coupled with hemodynamic forces exerted on the arterial wall. At present, a reliable method to predict AAA rupture is not available. Recent studies have introduced fluid structure interaction (FSI) simulations using isotropic wall properties to map regions of stress concentrations developing in the aneurismal wall as a much better alternative to the current clinical criterion, which is based on the AAA diameter alone. A new anisotropic material model of AAA that closely matches observed biomechanical AAA material properties was applied to FSI simulations of patient-specific AAA geometries in order to develop a more reliable predictor for its risk of rupture.

One aspect of the survey is as published in the International Journal of Cardiology: International Opinion on Priorities in Research for Small Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms and the Potential Path for Research to Impact Clinical Management. This Data-in-Brief article contains a detailed method for the conduct of this survey and additional original data. In this survey, we also provided vascular surgery colleagues with contemporary epidemiologic and surgical outcome data. This was followed by a hypothetical scenario whereby a patient had just been diagnosed with a small (40 mm) AAA and a novel biomarker predicted it to be fast growing in the coming years. We assessed the vascular professionals perception of the patients preference for management in this scenario, and their willingness to refer patients for a surgical trial that investigates the outcome of early versus
I write a lot pregnabcy yahoo answers and some abdominal aortic aneurysm after pregnancy the things that young people think will stop them becoming pregnant are incredibly naпve - its scary how uninformed they are. Women need to measure their body temperature every morning, before arising. Read this article to learn why French women are encouraged to give birth and what are the anurysm in giving birth. What I like abdominal aortic aneurysm after pregnancy this calendar is that it shows how the days repeat. However, hair loss during pregnancy is completely normal and is said to occur due to fluctuating hormones in the body. Family history: Women with a aortkc history aorttic ovarian cancer, or breast cancer are aneuryysm prone to the chance of developing ovarian cancer compared to other women. Apparently, Dutch fathers have been in the scene of aneuryzm abdominal aortic aneurysm after pregnancy a long time as can be observed in paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries.

Background. Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) has been claimed to decrease periprocedural mortality for treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms with suspected rupture (rAAA). However the benefit of EVAR in true clinical emergencies (plain ruptured AAA) is still uncertain. This study aimed to analyze immediate and mid term outcomes of true rAAA treated in emergency.. Methods. All patients treated for rAAA from 2006 to 2010 were reviewed. Our policy is to perform an immediate computed tomography (CT) in emergency room (ER) for all patients with suspected rAAA. Only patients with evident aneurysm rupture on imaging were selected for this study. EVAR feasibility was left to the discretion of the operative specialized team available 24hours/day. Stability of EVAR repair was assessed with pre-discharge CT-scan.. Results. A total of 66 patients with plain rAAA were treated in emergency: 23 underwent EVAR and 43 open surgery. At baseline there was an equal distribution of physiologic characteristics ...
The US Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF)have recommended that men aged 65 to 75 who have ever smoked should get an ultrasound to screen for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA).. Why is screening important? Most AAAs are silent until they rupture and AAA ruptures are often fatal.. The Mayo Clinic defines an AAA as An abdominal aortic aneurysm is an enlarged area in the lower part of the aorta, the major blood vessel that supplies blood to the body. The aorta, about the thickness of a garden hose, runs from your heart through the center of your chest and abdomen. Because the aorta is the bodys main supplier of blood, a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm can cause life-threatening bleeding. Screening for an AAA is an easy procedure - its simply an ultrasound of your abdomen, concentrating on the aorta. Canada Diagnostic Centres has been providing AAA screening since 2007 and patients often combine this screening test with our other screening exams for early detection of disease.. What ...
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a condition affecting the aorta, the main blood vessel supplying blood to the body. In some people, as they get older, the wall of the abdomen can become weak and start to expand, forming an abdominal aortic aneurysm.. The condition is most common in men aged 65 and over, affecting 1 in 70 men over that age. It is far less common in women.. It is a serious condition if the aneurysm becomes large, and is likely to be fatal if it bursts. However, AAA is a treatable condition if identified and so the NHS has launched a screening program for men when they reach the age of 65, who should be contacted by their GP. However, men over 65 who have not previously been contacted for screening can request a screening scan by visiting the NHS AAA Screening website.. For further information, download the Public Health England AAA information leaflet , visit the NHS AAA screening web page or contact your GP.. ...
Abdominal Aortic Aneurism is a condition when large blood vessels responsible for supplying blood to the abdomen, legs and pelvis become unusually large or inflates in an outward direction. Aneurism has been particularly categorized into three groups, viz. genetically inherited diseases, enzyme destruction, and lifestyle-influenced conditions.The risk factors of an abdominal aortic aneurism include smoking, obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, emphysema and genetic factors. It generally develops in males over the age of 60 experiencing any of these risk factors. The symptoms mostly include severe abdomen or back pain, nausea, vomiting, clammy skin, rapid heart rate and shock.. ...
Hey, guys and gals, another thing you need to be vigilant for is an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Though anyone can get them, they seem to be more prevalent in men than women and are a leading cause of death in older men. An abdominal aortic aneurysm, or AAA, is a weak spot in an artery wall in the stomach and can be hereditary and is also more common in smokers. You can and should get a screening to make sure youre not going to have one of these. Should something be found, modern medicine has a much easier way of treating it now than in the past. Nowadays, this can be repaired under local anesthetic (if you have the stomach for it!) and only takes about five days for recovery. ...

Having any type of surgery can cause you to worry, but needing surgery for an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) can bring on a whole new level of stress. The first thing to understand is that an open repair for an AAA is only performed when your vascular surgeon deems that the risk of rupture is greater than the risk of the surgery itself. If you are facing an upcoming open repair for an abdominal aortic aneurysm, keep reading to help you understand the procedure and why it may be necessary.. An abdominal aortic aneurysm (also known as a stomach aneurysm) results when the aorta becomes enlarged and/or begins to balloon out in the abdominal region. Not all aneurysms cause immediate, life-threatening situations; some develop over time without presenting symptoms for years. Any symptoms of constant pain in the abdominal region and/or back that spreads to the groin, fainting, nausea and vomiting, dizziness, racing heart, or clammy skin should be evaluated immediately. The purpose of open repair ...

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Screening is now available in MPHC The 4th Practice in conjuction with Affidea. What is an AAA?. The aorta is the main vessel carrying blood around your body. In some people, especially older men, the wall of the aorta gradually weakens and starts to expand. See diagrammatic illustration below.. Is an AAA serious?. Large AAA are rare, but can be very serious. As the aorta expands it can burst, and the person usually dies. Small/medium sized AAA are not as dangerous, and your consultant vascular surgeon will arrange ultrasound monitoring to see if it gets bigger.. Is Screening for AAA important, and why are you invited?. Most people with AAA have no symptoms. A simple painless ultrasound scan of your tummy will tell if you have an AAA. We are inviting men only, as AAA are six times more common in men than women. Ruptured AAA mostly happens to men. You also are more likely to have an AAA if you you smoke, have high blood pressure or your parent, brother or sister ...
Yale University researchers have developed a way in which medical imaging with SPECT/CT could potentially be used to assess a patients rupture risk for abdominal aortic aneurysm. Delaying surgical treatment can be life-threatening, and this new type of imaging could allow physicians to diagnose disease and better plan its management.

Background: Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a common disease characterized by mobilization of inflammatory cells into vessel walls and activation of vascular cells, leading to degradation of extracellular matrix(ECM). CD44 is not only a principle receptor for hyaluronic acid (HA), but also an adhesion molecule expressed on inflammatory and vascular cells. Recently, we have reported that low-molecular weight HA induced inflammatory cytokines from human peripheral mononuclear cells. We investigated the potential role of CD44 in the development of AAA.. Methods: For induction of AAA, we applied 0.5 M CaCl2 to the infrarenal aortae of mice deficient for CD44, and wild type (WT) littermates as a control.. Results: Six week after application of CaCl2, the diameter of aorta in CD44−/−mice (12%±13%, n=8) was significantly smaller than that in WT mice (53%±12%, n=10). The elevated expression of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2, -9, -12 and monocyte chemotactic protein-1 in WT aorta at one week ...

The word tachycardia came to English from New Latin as a neoclassical compound built from the combining forms tachy- + -cardia, which are from the Greek ταχύς tachys, "quick, rapid" and καρδία, kardia, "heart". As a matter both of usage choices in the medical literature and of idiom in natural language, the words tachycardia and tachyarrhythmia are usually used interchangeably, or loosely enough that precise differentiation is not explicit. Some careful writers have tried to maintain a logical differentiation between them, which is reflected in major medical dictionaries[7][8][9] and major general dictionaries.[10][11][12] The distinction is that tachycardia be reserved for the rapid heart rate itself, regardless of cause, physiologic or pathologic (that is, from healthy response to exercise or from cardiac arrhythmia), and that tachyarrhythmia be reserved for the pathologic form (that is, an arrhythmia of the rapid rate type). This is why five of the previously referenced ...

Anticoagulation can be used to reduce the risk of stroke from AF. Anticoagulation is recommended in most people other than those at low risk of stroke[77] or those at high risk of bleeding. The risk of falls and consequent bleeding in frail elderly people should not be considered a barrier to initiating or continuing anticoagulation since the risk of fall-related brain bleeding is low and the benefit of stroke prevention often outweighs the risk of bleeding.[78][79] Similarly, the presence or absence of AF symptoms does not determine whether a person warrants anticoagulation and is not an indicator of stroke risk.[33] Oral anticoagulation is underused in atrial fibrillation, while aspirin is overused in many who should be treated with a direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC) or warfarin.[80][81][82] In 2019, DOACs were often recommended over warfarin by the American Heart Association.[83] The risk of stroke from non-valvular AF can be estimated using the CHA2DS2-VASc score. In the 2019 AHA/ACC/HRS ...

LGL syndrome is diagnosed in a person who has experienced episodes of abnormal heart racing (arrhythmias) who has a PR interval less than or equal to 0.12 second (120 ms) with normal QRS complex configuration and duration on their resting ECG.[1] A short PR interval found incidentally on an ECG without episodes of tachycardia is simply a benign ECG variant. LGL can be distinguished from WPW syndrome because the delta waves seen in WPW syndrome are not seen in LGL syndrome. The QRS complex will also be narrow in LGL syndrome, as opposed to WPW, because ventricular conduction is via the His-Purkinje system. Lown-Ganong-Levine syndrome is a clinical diagnosis that came about before the advent of electrophysiology studies. It is important to be aware that not all WPW ECGs have a delta wave; the absence of a delta wave does not conclusively rule out WPW. ...

... s (PJCs), also called atrioventricular junctional premature complexes or junctional extrasystole, are premature cardiac electrical impulses originating from the atrioventricular node of the heart or "junction". This area is not the normal but only a secondary source of cardiac electrical impulse formation. These premature beats can be found occasionally in healthy people and more commonly in some pathologic conditions, typically in the case of drug cardiotoxicity, electrolyte imbalance, mitral valve surgery, and cold water immersion.[1] If more than two such beats are seen, then the condition is termed junctional rhythm. On the surface ECG, premature junctional contractions will appear as a normally shaped ventricular complex or QRS complex, not preceded by any atrial complex or P wave or preceded by an abnormal P wave with a shorter PR interval. Rarely, the abnormal P wave can follow the QRS.[2] ...

After any PVC there is a pause that can lead to the development of bigeminy. A PVC wavefront often encounters a refractory AV node that does not conduct the wavefront retrograde. Thus the atrium is not depolarized and the sinus node is not reset. Since the sinus p wave to PVC interval is less than the normal P-P interval, the interval between the PVC and the next p wave is prolonged to equal the normal time elapsed during two P-P intervals. This is called a "compensatory" pause. The pause after the PVC leads to a longer recovery time, which is associated with a higher likelihood of myocardium being in different stages of repolarization. This then allows for re-entrant circuits and sets up the ventricle for another PVC after the next sinus beat.[2] The constant interval between the sinus beat and PVC suggests a reentrant etiology rather than spontaneous automaticity of the ventricle.[3] Atrial premature complexes (APCs) do not have a compensatory pause since they reset the sinus node but atrial ...

The general cause of cardiac amyloidosis is misfolding of a specific protein precursor depending on the amyloidosis type. Protein precursors include immunoglobulin-derived light chains and transthyretin mutations.[2] The misfolding of the protein causes it to have insoluble beta-pleated sheets,[3] creating an amyloid. Amyloid, the aggregation, or clumping, of proteins, is resistant to degradation by the body. Amyloids are mostly fibrils, while also containing a P component, apolipoprotein, collagen, fibronectin, and laminin.[3] The P component, a pentameric protein, stabilizes the fibrils of the amyloid, which reduces their clearance from the body.[1] Deposits of the amyloids can occur through out of the body, including the heart, liver, kidneys, spleen, adrenal glands, and bones. Deposits in the extracellular cardiac space can stiffen the heart, resulting in restriction of the ventricles.[2] ...
