• arteriovenous
  • arteriovenous aneurysm an abnormal communication between an artery and a vein in which the blood flows directly into a neighboring vein or is carried into the vein by a connecting sac. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • In the iliac system VAs have been sporadically reported, often in association with congenital or post-traumatic arteriovenous malformations (AVM, approximately 50% of cases), proximal flow obstruction (17%), pregnancy or cardiovascular anomalies which increase flow and/or pressure within the venous system.

  • peripheral artery
  • 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) reports nine-month clinical endpoint data from its ORION trial, demonstrating excellent outcomes for the company's Epic Self-Expanding Nitinol Stent System in patients with iliac artery disease, a form of peripheral artery disease associated with severe leg pain caused by insufficient blood flow. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • congenital
  • Other diseases that can lead to an aneurysm include syphilis, cystic medionecrosis, certain nonspecific inflammations, and congenital defects in the artery. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • There are also congenital disorders that increase the risk of developing brain aneurysms such as polycystic kidney disease, which increases blood pressure, and Ehlers-Danlos, a condition that weakens blood vessels. (livestrong.com)
  • Surgery
  • The main form of treatment for Dissecting Common Iliac Artery Aneurysm is Surgery. (epainassist.com)
  • A device developed by Spectros, called T-Stat, is approved by the US FDA to detect ischemia, and has been reported to detect ischemia in AAA aneurysm surgery and stenting, allowing the surgeon or interventional radiologist to take action quickly, while the colon ischemia is still treatable. (stanford.edu)
  • Dr. Mell's clinical interests include all aspects of vascular surgery, with a special emphasis on surgery for complex aortic disease, including endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm. (stanford.edu)
  • This is suitable for a wide variety of surgery, for example gynaecological surgery (e.g. hysterectomy), orthopaedic surgery (e.g. hip replacement), general surgery (e.g. laparotomy) and vascular surgery (e.g. open aortic aneurysm repair). (wikipedia.org)
  • Surgery may be done either by an opening in the chest or by endovascular aneurysm repair (carried out from inside the blood vessels). (wikipedia.org)
  • DIAGNOSIS
  • With timely diagnosis and treatment along with proper care and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, the patients of dissecting common iliac artery aneurysm can get healthy in no time. (epainassist.com)
  • Signs and symptoms alone are not sufficiently sensitive or specific to make a diagnosis, but when considered in conjunction with known risk factors, can help determine the likelihood of DVT. (wikipedia.org)
  • Diagnosis is usually based on a person's signs and symptoms. (wikipedia.org)
  • The diagnosis of appendicitis is largely based on the person's signs and symptoms. (wikipedia.org)
  • The diagnosis is suspected based on symptoms with medical imaging such as computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, or ultrasound used to confirm and further evaluate the dissection. (wikipedia.org)
  • abnormal
  • Firstly described in the 19th century by Sir William Osler, the mycotic aneurysm (MA) is a rare entity characterized by an abnormal arterial dilation, which is potentially fatal, and is associated with the infection of the vascular wall. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • The inferior cava, common and external iliac veins did not show abnormal dilatation nor thrombosis. (eurorad.org)
  • stent
  • The purpose of this study is to determine if it is safe and effective to use the TALENT AAA Stent Graft System as a treatment for AAAs in patients who are also candidates for conventional surgical aneurysm repair. (stanford.edu)
  • The purpose of the Valiant Evo US Clinical Trial is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the Valiant Evo Thoracic Stent Graft System in subjects with a descending thoracic aortic aneurysm (DTAA) who are candidates for endovascular repair. (stanford.edu)
  • The clinical objective of the study is to evaluate the long term safety and effectiveness of the Endurant Stent Graft System assessed at 5 years through freedom from Aneurysm-Related Mortality (ARM). (stanford.edu)
  • To demonstrate safety and effectiveness of the Endurant Stent Graft in the treatment of Abdominal Aortic or Aorto-Uni-Iliac Aneurysms. (stanford.edu)
  • severe
  • The patient with a ruptured aortic aneurysm exhibits severe pain and blood loss, leading to shock. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • A ruptured aneurysm may present with sudden, severe headaches, blurred vision, seizures, a stiff neck, vomiting and feelings of nausea, light sensitivity and loss of consciousness. (livestrong.com)
  • hypertension
  • One should be particularly alert to the possibility of an aneurysm in persons with a history of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, or peripheral vascular disease. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Some contributing factors to weakening of the artery walls are family history of brain aneurysms, hypertension, head injury, arteriosclerosis, old age, drug abuse--specifically cocaine, heavy alcohol consumption and low estrogen levels that follow menopause. (livestrong.com)
  • This increased blood circulation combats vasoconstriction, which can be caused by arteriosclerosis and hypertension, two risk factors for aneurysms. (livestrong.com)
