  • rAAA
  • The care given to patients after ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) in the US outstrips that in English NHS hospitals, according to a major new study published as part of a special issue of The Lancet ahead of the American College of Cardiology's 63rd Annual Scientific Session. (eurekalert.org)
  • stenosis
  • We selected the Senning operation because there was the possibility that the new aortic valve might develop persistent stenosis and regurgitation after ASO and pulmonary valvotomy. (umin.ac.jp)
  • blunt
  • Causes of increased pericardial effusion include hypothyroidism, physical trauma (either penetrating trauma involving the pericardium or blunt chest trauma), pericarditis (inflammation of the pericardium), iatrogenic trauma (during an invasive procedure), and myocardial rupture. (wikipedia.org)
  • acute
  • This was acquired and shows a very dramatic rupture with a huge amount of active contrast extravasation in keeping with acute haemorrhage. (radiopaedia.org)
  • surgical
  • A case of successful surgical revascularization for mid-aortic syndrome is reported, with discussion of the operative method. (umin.ac.jp)
  • cardiac
  • A 78-year male who underwent cardiac surgery experienced balloon rupture and entrapment in the right femoral artery during the postoperative follow-up. (hindawi.com)
  • trauma
  • An angiogram will often show an irregular outpouching beyond the takeoff of the left subclavian artery at the aortic isthmus, representing an aortic pseudoaneurysm caused by the trauma. (wikipedia.org)
  • The effusion can occur rapidly (as in the case of trauma or myocardial rupture), or over a more gradual period of time (as in cancer). (wikipedia.org)
  • Coronary artery disease Hypertension Loeys-Dietz Syndrome Hypercholesterolemia Hyperhomocysteinemia Elevated C-reactive protein Tobacco use Peripheral vascular disease Marfan syndrome Ehlers-Danlos type IV Bicuspid Aortic Valve Syphilis IgG4-related disease Pregnancy An aortic aneurysm can occur as a result of trauma, infection, or, most commonly, from an intrinsic abnormality in the elastin and collagen components of the aortic wall.

  • lower
  • This full color medical-legal illustration displays the normal anatomy of the lower leg and the rupture of the achilles (cal. (indexedvisuals.com)
  • aorta
  • During the sixth and seventh weeks the third pair of aortic arches, together with the dorsal aorta, transform into the primitive internal carotid arteries, with the first and second arches undergoing early involution. (vascularneurosurgery.com)
  • There are several terms which are interchangeably used to describe injury to the aorta such as tear, laceration, transection, and rupture. (wikipedia.org)
  • The procedure involves the placement of an expandable stent graft within the aorta to treat aortic disease without operating directly on the aorta. (wikipedia.org)
  • hemodynamic
  • If the patient with cardiogenic shock is not going to be revascularized, aggressive hemodynamic support is warranted, with insertion of an intra-aortic balloon pump if not contraindicated. (wikipedia.org)
  • heart
  • Rupture is usually a catastrophic event that may result a life-threatening process known as cardiac tamponade, in which blood accumulates within the pericardium or heart sac, and compresses the heart to the point where it cannot pump effectively. (wikipedia.org)
  • Rupture of the intraventricular septum (the muscle separating the left and right ventricles) causes a ventricular septal defect with shunting of blood through the defect from the left side of the heart to the right side of the heart, which can lead to right ventricular failure as well as pulmonary overcirculation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Heart had evidence of hypertrophy in muscle, with some atheromatous patches along the aortic ring. (wikipedia.org)
  • repair
  • Along with a short proximal aortic neck, necks with any of these characteristics are called "hostile necks" and endovascular repair can be either contraindicated or associated with early late complications of endoleak, or endograft migration, or both. (wikipedia.org)
  • period
  • The shear stress between the infarcted segment and the surrounding normal myocardium (which may be hypercontractile in the post-infarction period) makes it a nidus for rupture. (wikipedia.org)
