Surgery of thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) is associated with blood loss and coagulopathy and a high need for red blood cell (RBC) volume. Retrograde autologous priming (RAP) decreases haemodilution during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). The aim of this study was to show the effect of RAP during surgery of TAA repair on haemodilution, the need for RBC transfusion and the postoperative course compared to conventional CPB (cCPB).

This study aimed to assess differences in midterm outcomes between total arch replacement (TAR) and debranching thoracic endovascular aortic repair (d-TEVAR) and to evaluate the validity of d-TEVAR as...
Female sex has been associated with greater morbidity and mortality for a variety of major cardiovascular procedures. We sought to determine the influence of female sex on early and late outcomes afte...
The risk of rupture and dissection in ascending thoracic aortic aneurysms increases as the aortic diameter exceeds 5 cm. This study evaluates the clinical effectiveness of a specific algorithm based ...
A 64-year-old woman who underwent thoraco-abdominal aortic replacement for a Crawford type II aneurysm 11 years ago was referred to our hospital because of a residual juxtarenal abdominal aortic ane...
Giant thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA) are extremely uncommon, and there are only a few cases reported in the literature. Most patients presented with symptoms before the size of the aneurysm reached a...
The objective of this prospective cohort study is to determine the prevalence of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) in patients with and without thoracic aortic aneurysm.
The purpose of this national observational study is to evaluate the Thoraflex™ Hybrid vascular prosthesis in the replacement of the aortic arch and the treatment of aneurysm/dissection o...
The Valiant stent-graft system is a flexible, implantable vascular stent-graft endoluminal device preloaded in a delivery system that is used to exclude thoracic aortic lesions (thoracic a...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the accuracy and reliability of intra-operative TEE after the induction of anesthesia when assessing proximal thoracic aorta diameters in a cohort of a...
This is a prospective study designed to determine the safety and value of Hypoxyprobe-1 (pimonidazole hydrochloride (-HCl)) to detect levels of tissue hypoxia in patients presenting with a...
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.
The tearing or bursting of the wall along any portion of the AORTA, such as thoracic or abdominal. It may result from the rupture of an aneurysm or it may be due to TRAUMA.
A surgical specialty concerned with diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the heart, lungs, and esophagus. Two major types of thoracic surgery are classified as pulmonary and cardiovascular.
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.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
