A 69-year-old man presented with precordial pain and a dilated ascending aorta with the suspicion of an intramural hematoma. At emergency operation, the aorta appeared grossly thickened with diffuse intimal scarring. Retrospectively, the patient tested positive to serologic screening for syphilis with histologic findings also compatible with a syphilitic aortitis.

Syphilis, a sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacterium Treponema palladium, is experiencing a worldwide resurgence. The risk of syphilis infection is particularly high in men who have sex ...
The natural history of ascending aortic aneurysm (AsAA) is currently not well characterized.
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...
Aneurysmal disease can affect any segment of the aorta, from the aortic root to the aortic bifurcation. The treatment of aortic aneurysms has evolved dramatically in the past 3 decades, with the intro...
The aim of the study was to show the relationship between the concentration of lysosomal peptidases: cathepsin A, D and E in the wall of the abdominal aortic aneurysm and the concentration of copper a...
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 BIOMArCS-AAA study aims to investigate the associations of (temporal patterns of) blood biomarkers with aneurysm growth in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), with particula...
The registry study aims to determine serial biomarkers to diagnosis and prognosis of aortic aneurysm/aortic dissection.
The purpose of this study is to assess the role of abdominal aneurysm and iliac aneurysm exclusion using an endovascular prosthesis.
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.
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.
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.
Solitary lesions of bone that typically cause a bulging of the overlying cortex bearing some resemblance to the saccular protrusion of the aortic wall in aortic aneurysm, hence the name. (Dorland, 27th ed)
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.
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
