Consistency of Proximal-to-Distal Tapering of Descending Thoracic Aortic Diameter: Quantification Using a Novel Computer Tomography Based Assessment.

Summary of "Consistency of Proximal-to-Distal Tapering of Descending Thoracic Aortic Diameter: Quantification Using a Novel Computer Tomography Based Assessment."

Successful endovascular repair of thoracic aorta for type B aortic dissection requires correct stent-graft sizing, particularly of distal landing zone which is mainly based on operator experience. The present study aimed to quantitatively define proximal-to-distal tapering of descending thoracic aortic diameter and its consistency.

Modelling of predissection aortic size in acute descending aortic dissection†.

Large aortic diameter is considered the most frequent cause of aortic dissection. However, this assumption relies on postdissection imaging of the aorta. We recently showed that acute dissection leads...

Descending aortic banding for re-rupture of retrograde aortic dissection after emergency thoracic endovascular aortic repair.

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...

Successful thoracic endovascular aortic repair in Ortner's Syndrome.

We present the case of an 89-year-old man with 3-month history of hoarseness and no other significant clinical manifestations. Flexible laryngoscopy revealed a paralyzed left vocal cord, and contrast-...

Open surgery for descending thoracic aorta in an endovascular era.

Thoracic endovascular aortic repair has become the preferred treatment for a variety of descending thoracic aortic pathologies. However, there are unresolved issues such as morphologic appearance of c...

Surgical repair of distal aortic arch aneurysm with distal extension: sternotomy versus thoracotomy.

There is no consensus as to whether a median approach or lateral approach is better for distal aortic arch aneurysms with distal extensions. The aim of this study was to compare clinical outcomes of t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 renal tubule portion that extends from the BOWMAN CAPSULE in the KIDNEY CORTEX into the KIDNEY MEDULLA. The proximal tubule consists of a convoluted proximal segment in the cortex, and a distal straight segment descending into the medulla where it forms the U-shaped LOOP OF HENLE.

The U-shaped portion of the renal tubule in the KIDNEY MEDULLA, consisting of a descending limb and an ascending limb. It is situated between the PROXIMAL KIDNEY TUBULE and the DISTAL KIDNEY TUBULE.

A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.

The joint that is formed by the distal end of the RADIUS, the articular disc of the distal radioulnar joint, and the proximal row of CARPAL BONES; (SCAPHOID BONE; LUNATE BONE; triquetral bone).
