• hypertension
  • Alcohol and hypertension: The inflammation caused by prolonged use of alcohol and hypertensive effects from abdominal edema which leads to hemorrhoids, esophageal varices, and other conditions, is also considered a long-term cause of AAA. (wikipedia.org)
  • grafts
  • His actual emphasis covers the development of interventional procedures for children, aortic stent grafts and the diagnostics and therapy of congenital vascular anomalies. (wikipedia.org)
  • proximal
  • Essential to the successful management of these injuries is a thorough knowledge of intra-abdominal vascular anatomy and a familiarity with the techniques of proximal and distal control combined with selective application of primary repair, bypass, or ligation as indicated. (medscape.com)
  • femoral
  • No femoral pulses were palpated, hypoesthesia and paraparesia of lower extremities and abdominal guarding were found on examination. (ahajournals.org)
  • vessels
  • Injuries to major abdominal vessels are uncommon but highly lethal vascular crises. (medscape.com)
  • In blunt trauma, rapid deceleration during a motor vehicle accident (MVA) results in an avulsion of the small branches of major vessels (eg, mesenteric tear). (medscape.com)
  • vascular
  • The incidence of abdominal vascular injuries in military conflicts is surprisingly low: generally less than 5% of all vascular injuries. (medscape.com)
  • This striking difference between combat and noncombat vascular trauma can be attributed to the low energy of missiles from civilian handguns and the short prehospital transit times in urban settings, which make it more likely that a civilian with penetrating abdominal vascular injury will survive long enough to reach surgical care.

  • trauma
  • Hemorrhagic shock from intra-abdominal hemorrhage often leads to metabolic acidosis accompanied by coagulopathy and hypothermia-the so-called lethal triad of trauma. (medscape.com)
  • dissection
  • See the images of aortic dissection below. (medscape.com)
  • Contrast-enhanced CT scan obtained at the level of the aortic arch demonstrates an aortic dissection with almost complete separation of the aortic intima. (medscape.com)
  • Preferred examinations for aortic dissection include contrast-enhanced spiral CT transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in the emergency setting and MRI for hemodynamically stable patients. (medscape.com)
  • reconstruction
  • Furthermore, these results indicated that maintenance of intraoperative collateral circulation to spinal cord might be important instead of reconstruction of intercostal arteries associated with postoperative paraplegia. (ahajournals.org)
  • pulmonary
  • A complete aortic thrombectomy under extracorporeal circulation 1 and through thoraco-phreno-laparotomy was planned for the very next days after cardiac and pulmonary functions tests could be done. (ahajournals.org)
  • ultrasound
  • In the United States, screening with abdominal ultrasound is recommended for males between 65 and 75 years of age with a history of smoking. (wikipedia.org)
  • Patients
  • Patients must have unresectable pancreatic cancer evaluated by radiologist and/or surgeon according to either abdominal CT or MRI, or intra-operative findings. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The criteria proposed for the clinical diagnosis of Takayasu's arteriopathy were based on clinical and angiographic data from 108 Japanese patients (96 of whom had TA and 12 with other aortic diseases). (hindawi.com)
