Summary of "Impact of isolated cerebral perfusion technique for aortic arch aneurysm repair in elderly patients."

In aortic surgery, a severely atherosclerotic aorta is a known risk factor for perioperative stroke. We adopted a novel procedure of selective cerebral perfusion, named isolated cerebral perfusion (ICP), for the prevention of stroke during aortic arch surgery.

Combining Cerebral Perfusion with Retrograde Inferior Vena Caval Perfusion for Aortic Arch Surgery.

Hypothermic circulatory arrest and selective cerebral perfusion are standard procedures during total arch replacement to treat acute type A aortic dissection. However, organ ischemia during anastomosi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Congenital vascular malformation in which the AORTA arch and its branches encircle the TRACHEA and ESOPHAGUS. Signs and symptoms include DYSPNEA; RESPIRATORY SOUNDS, especially with eating, DYSPHAGIA, persistent cough, and GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX or may be asymptomatic. Two most common types are double aortic arch and right aortic arch. It may be associated with other anomalies (e.g., DIGEORGE SYNDROME).

Small clusters of chemoreceptive and supporting cells located near the ARCH OF THE AORTA; the PULMONARY ARTERIES; and the coronary arteries. The aortic bodies sense PH; CARBON DIOXIDE; and oxygen concentrations in the BLOOD and participate in the control of RESPIRATION. The aortic bodies should not be confused with the PARA-AORTIC BODIES in the abdomen (which are sometimes also called aortic bodies).

Postoperative hemorrhage from an endovascular AORTIC ANEURYSM repaired with endoluminal placement of stent grafts (BLOOD VESSEL PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION). It is associated with pressurization, expansion, and eventual rupture of the aneurysm.

Cardiovascular manifestations of SYPHILIS, an infection of TREPONEMA PALLIDUM. In the late stage of syphilis, sometimes 20-30 years after the initial infection, damages are often seen in the blood vessels including the AORTA and the AORTIC VALVE. Clinical signs include syphilitic aortitis, aortic insufficiency, or aortic ANEURYSM.

An abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of the ABDOMINAL AORTA which gives rise to the visceral, the parietal, and the terminal (iliac) branches below the aortic hiatus at the diaphragm.
