Retrograde type A dissection (RTAD) is a serious complication after ascending aorta involved endovascular repair (AAIER). We here report our surgical approach to this serious complication.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Annals of vascular surgery
Different case series have been published demonstrating the feasibility of endovascular repair of the ascending aorta in selected patients deemed unfit for open surgery. However, the use of commercial...
Conversion to open repair after thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for acute type B aortic dissection is rare, but inevitable. We present a case of an 86-year-old man with ruptured type B aor...
Type A aortic dissection (AD) and ascending thoracic aortic aneurysm (AA) are thoracic vascular diseases with similar initial pathology but inequable clinical features and outcomes, where local and sy...
Anomalous retroaortic left brachiocephalic vein( ARLBV) is a rare vascular abnormaly, usually asossiated with congenital heart diseases. We present a very rare case of Stanford type A acute aortic dis...
A patient with progressive chronic type B dissection and contraindication for open surgery underwent thoracic endovascular aortic repair using a Cardiatis Multilayer Flow Modulator®. Two weeks after ...
Aortic dissection (AD) is a serious pathology affecting one person for 300 000 habitants per year. In case of complicated AD on the descending aorta, it is necessary to perform an endovasc...
The purpose of this early feasibility study is to investigate the outcome of selected patients with ascending thoracic aortic pathologies including type A aortic dissection, who are suitab...
The relationship between the presence of a partial thrombus and aortic dilation after type B dissection has recently been reported. The originality lies in the idea of imaging thrombus act...
Acute type A aortic dissection is a frequent (3 cases per 100 000 people per year) and severe (spontaneous mortality 70%), needing an emergency surgical treatment. Surgical outcomes have i...
Aortic disease is a kind of cardiovascular diseases with very high mortality rate and high risk of surgical treatment. At present, the surgical and endovascular treatment for diseases in t...
Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.
Aneurysm caused by a tear in the TUNICA INTIMA of a blood vessel leading to interstitial HEMORRHAGE, and splitting (dissecting) of the vessel wall, often involving the AORTA. Dissection between the intima and media causes luminal occlusion. Dissection at the media, or between the media and the outer adventitia causes aneurismal dilation.
Retrograde flow of urine from the URINARY BLADDER into the URETER. This is often due to incompetence of the vesicoureteral valve leading to ascending bacterial infection into the KIDNEY.
Conditions resulting from abnormalities in the arteries branching from the ASCENDING AORTA, the curved portion of the aorta. These syndromes are results of occlusion or abnormal blood flow to the head-neck or arm region leading to neurological defects and weakness in an arm. These syndromes are associated with vascular malformations; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; TRAUMA; and blood clots.
The portion of the descending aorta proceeding from the arch of the aorta and extending to the DIAPHRAGM, eventually connecting to the ABDOMINAL AORTA.
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...
