  • Introduction
  • Through the introduction of thoracic and cardiovascular surgery in the Department and cooperation with the sections of the Center for Operational Medicine (ZOM) of the Faculty of Medicine, there are also performed more complex resections, in particular, with the use of the cardiopulmonary bypass.

  • section of the descen
  • According to Dr. Raissi, one of the more dramatic breakthroughs of the past 10 years has significantly dropped the mortality and long-term disability risks for patients undergoing surgery to replace a damaged section of the descending aortic aneurysm. (innovations-report.com)
  • proximal
  • A thoracic stent graft (20) has a tubular bio-compatible graft material body (22) with a lumen therethrough with a proximal end (26) and a distal end (27). (google.es)
  • 1 . A thoracic stent graft having a tubular bio-compatible graft material body with a lumen therethrough and having a proximal end and a distal end, a sealing stent at the proximal end of the tubular body and an anchoring device affixed to the sealing stent. (google.es)
  • 9 . A thoracic stent graft as in claim 1 further including one or more intermediate stents positioned between the proximal sealing stent and the distal end. (google.es)
  • 18 . A thoracic stent graft as in claim 16 wherein the second portion includes at least two internal sealing stents at its proximal end. (google.es)
  • This proximal descending portion of aorta gives rise to the visceral and the parietal branches above the aortic hiatus at the diaphragm. (curehunter.com)
  • Subject's anatomy is suitable for placement of the TALENT endoluminal stent-graft, with a distinct proximal aneurysm neck of 10 mm or more in length and a distal aneurysm neck of at least 10 mm. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Subject has a proximal and distal aortic neck diameter ≥ 18 mm and ≤ 42 mm. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • 5.4 x 5.7 cm proximal descending thoracic aortic aneurysm. (radiopaedia.org)
  • disease
  • It is therefore important that cardiologists acquire a sufficient knowledge base so that they can confidently evaluate and manage patients with aortic disease and know when it is appropriate to refer them for surgery. (ahajournals.org)
  • Thoracic aortic aneurysms may be caused by different disease processes, especially in respect to their location. (nyhq.org)
  • Play media Guidelines were issued in March 2010 for early detection of thoracic aortic disease, by the American College of Cardiology, the American Heart Association, and other groups. (wikipedia.org)
  • diameter
  • When a portion of it stretches and swells to more than 50 percent of the original diameter, this is called an aneurysm. (ucdavis.edu)
  • Thoracic aortic aneurysms are identified and/or confirmed through X-ray and chest CT scans, which can also be used to measure the diameter of the aneurysm and its exact location. (ucdavis.edu)
  • A thoracic aortic aneurysm, also called TAA, is a bulging, weakened area in the wall of the aorta (the largest artery in the body), resulting in an abnormal widening or ballooning greater than 50 percent of the vessel's normal diameter (width). (nyhq.org)
  • Thoracic abdominal aneurysm is defined as a diameter exceeding the following cutoff: 4.5 cm in the United States 4.0 cm in South Korea A diameter of 3.5 cm is generally considered dilated. (wikipedia.org)
  • enlargement
  • Smoking cessation and medication to control blood pressure may help to slow the rate of enlargement of an intact aneurysm. (ucdavis.edu)
  • An aortic aneurysm is an enlargement (dilation) of the aorta to greater than 1.5 times normal size. (wikipedia.org)
  • Untreated, aneurysms tend to become progressively larger, although the rate of enlargement is unpredictable for any individual. (wikipedia.org)
  • congenital
  • Although prolonged high blood pressure and arterial plaque buildup are among common predisposing factors, aneurysms may be congenital malformations or they may result from physical injuries. (innovations-report.com)
  • repair
  • Lastly, repair is also indicated for aneurysms that are the source of pain and tenderness, which may indicate impending rupture. (wikipedia.org)
  • root
  • Aortic root reconstruction with a bioprosthetic valved conduit: a consecutive series of 275 procedures. (wikipedia.org)
