Pseudocoarctation of the aorta (PCOA) is an unusual congenital malformation of the aortic arch characterized by an acute anterior angulation of the aortic arch at the level of the ligamentum arteriosum with little or no obstruction. This report describes the occurrence of PCOA and other aortic arch abnormalities including true coarctation, right aortic arch, and aneurysms of the proximal and distal aortic arch in three generations of a single family. To our knowledge, a familial form of PCOA has not been described.

Our discovery of a case of persistent double dorsal aorta prompted us to systematically review the literature of all previously reported cases of this anomaly. For our case, we present a completely se...
Familial aggregation (clustering) of venous thromboembolism (VTE) is the clustering of VTE within a family. Though several genes, such as antithrombin, protein C, protein S, factor V, and prothrombin ...
Pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta is a rare but life- threatening complication after aortic cannulation and cardiovascular surgery, and it has the potential to rupture. We experienced a rare case ...
A best evidence topic in cardiovascular surgery was written according to a structured protocol. The question addressed was whether the thoracic aorta is a safe site for the proximal anastomosis when b...
Familial hypercholesterolaemia is a common genetic disorder that accelerates premature coronary heart disease. Although effective treatments are available, the majority of individuals remain undiagnos...
Aim of this study is to measure length of the ascending aorta in adults and to investigate the clinical implication of 'elongation' of the aorta.
The purpose of this trial is to determine whether aortic manipulation in patients undergoing coronary bypass graft surgery leads to increased incidence of microemboli and subsequent impair...
Abnormalities of the aorta have been identified in patients who have undergone repair of coarctation of the aorta by various surgical techniques. These abnormalities are thought to contri...
The purpose of this research is to assess the effects of a drug called perindopril on the aorta in people known to have Marfan Syndrome. The aorta is the major artery of the body that come...
The aim of this multicenter randomized trial is to compare the endovascular repair versus conventional repair for ruptured aorta-iliac aneurysms observed on CT scan in stable patients with...
The portion of the descending aorta proceeding from the arch of the aorta and extending to the DIAPHRAGM, eventually connecting to the ABDOMINAL AORTA.
The aorta from the DIAPHRAGM to the bifurcation into the right and left common iliac arteries.
An abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of the THORACIC AORTA. This proximal descending portion of aorta gives rise to the visceral and the parietal branches above the aortic hiatus at the diaphragm.
Diseases in which there is a familial pattern of AMYLOIDOSIS.
A familial disorder marked by AMYLOID deposits in the walls of small and medium sized blood vessels of CEREBRAL CORTEX and MENINGES.
