Neoplasias affecting the aorta are usually due to a variety of thoracic and abdominal tumours, which are more common than primary tumours of the aortic wall. Those tumors that can invade the abdominal aorta are usually sarcomas, which are able to mimic, both clinically and radiologically, an aortic disease such as an aneurysm or a dissection. There are few clinical scenarios where surgical resection and aortic repair needs to be performed, and indications have not still been clearly established in the literature. We describe the case of a patient with a periaortic lymphoma who presented an aortic rupture and was successfully treated with an urgent endovascular repair.

We present a unique case scenario of a periaortic liposarcoma masquerading as an impending rupture of an inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA).
Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal dominant disease of the skin and soft tissue. Aneurysms associated with NF1 can occur, but a secondary aneurysm rupture is very rare, with very few cases...
Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) are permanent, local expansions of the abdominal segment of the aorta that can potentially be fatal if progressing to rupture. AAAs are rarely found in patients under...
Blunt abdominal aortic injury is an extremely rare condition. In the past, when blunt abdominal aortic injury was managed with open surgery, intra-abdominal injury was identified more easily, while in...
We present a case of successfully treated abdominal aortic aneurysm in a 24-year old patient with Marfan's syndrome. Following initial physical and ultrasound examination, the multislice computed tomo...
Screening for an abdominal aortic aneurysm, monitoring its growth and evaluation of its risk of rupture are based on the mesure of its maximum diameter. The abdominal aortic aneurysm's tre...
Eligible subjects in this study will have either a known abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) or because they do not have an AAA (control group). The purpose of this research study is to furth...
It has been estimated that 80% of deaths from abdominal aortic aneurysms results from rupture. Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR) has been applied to RAAA (Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneur...
The purpose of this study is to compare endovascular repair using any FDA approved Medtronic AAA Stent Graft System versus surveillance in subjects with smaller abdominal aortic aneurysms ...
Rupture of abdominal aortic aneurysms(AAA) causes 12,000 deaths/year in the UK.1 Elective repair to prevent this carries a perioperative mortality of 4.5% for open surgery and 1% for endov...
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.
INFLAMMATION of the PERITONEUM lining the ABDOMINAL CAVITY as the result of infectious, autoimmune, or chemical processes. Primary peritonitis is due to infection of the PERITONEAL CAVITY via hematogenous or lymphatic spread and without intra-abdominal source. Secondary peritonitis arises from the ABDOMINAL CAVITY itself through RUPTURE or ABSCESS of intra-abdominal organs.
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.
Small masses of chromaffin cells found near the SYMPATHETIC GANGLIA along the ABDOMINAL AORTA, beginning cranial to the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) or renal arteries and extending to the level of the aortic bifurcation or just beyond. They are also called the organs of Zuckerkandl and sometimes called aortic bodies (not to be confused with AORTIC BODIES in the THORAX). The para-aortic bodies are the dominant source of CATECHOLAMINES in the FETUS and normally regress after BIRTH.
A form of undifferentiated malignant LYMPHOMA usually found in central Africa, but also reported in other parts of the world. It is commonly manifested as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass. B-cell antigens are expressed on the immature cells that make up the tumor in virtually all cases of Burkitt lymphoma. The Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) has been isolated from Burkitt lymphoma cases in Africa and it is implicated as the causative agent in these cases; however, most non-African cases are EBV-negative.
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...
