Syphilitic Aortic Aneurysm in the Third Millennium.

08:00 EDT 1st October 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Syphilitic Aortic Aneurysm in the Third Millennium."

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
