We report the case of a patient with chronic type A aortic dissection (AD), who had been admitted, 18 months ago, to another hospital with acute chest-tearing pain accompanied with transient loss of...
Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a rare genetic connective tissue disorders, but the vascular type (Type IV) typically poses the greatest risk to patients. We report a case of multiple cranial artery dissect...
Mechanical thrombectomy is an effective management for acute large vessel occlusion. However, when difficult anatomy is encountered in which the reperfusion catheter cannot be positioned well, the out...
Decision-making concerning the extent of the repair of acute type A aortic dissection (ATAAD) includes functional and anatomical assessment of the aortic valve. We hypothesized that bicuspid aortic va...
Here, we describe the four primary imaging modalities for identification of carotid artery dissection, advantages, limitations, and clinical considerations. In addition, imaging characteristics of car...
Prospective, single-arm, multi-center registry study A total of 50 subjects with Type B aortic dissection who meet all inclusion and exclusion criteria will be included. Patients will be ...
The purpose of this study is to validate the impact of ALDH2 Glu504Lys polymorphism on aortic dissection.
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is valuable treatment option for patients, who are at the high risk of surgical aortic valve replacement (AVR). Majority of procedures are pe...
Horner's syndrome (HS) is a result of interruption of the sympathetic innervation to the eye and ocular adnexa, which can occur due to carotid artery dissection (CAD), along which the symp...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the impact of ALDH2 Glu504Lys polymorphism on aortic dissection.
Damages to the CAROTID ARTERIES caused either by blunt force or penetrating trauma, such as CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; THORACIC INJURIES; and NECK INJURIES. Damaged carotid arteries can lead to CAROTID ARTERY THROMBOSIS; CAROTID-CAVERNOUS SINUS FISTULA; pseudoaneurysm formation; and INTERNAL CAROTID ARTERY DISSECTION. (From Am J Forensic Med Pathol 1997, 18:251; J Trauma 1994, 37:473)
The splitting of the vessel wall in one or both (left and right) internal carotid arteries (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL). Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the internal carotid artery and aneurysm formation.
Ischemia or infarction of the spinal cord in the distribution of the anterior spinal artery, which supplies the ventral two-thirds of the spinal cord. This condition is usually associated with ATHEROSCLEROSIS of the aorta and may result from dissection of an AORTIC ANEURYSM or rarely dissection of the anterior spinal artery. Clinical features include weakness and loss of pain and temperature sensation below the level of injury, with relative sparing of position and vibratory sensation. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1249-50)
Pathological conditions involving the CAROTID ARTERIES, including the common, internal, and external carotid arteries. ATHEROSCLEROSIS and TRAUMA are relatively frequent causes of carotid artery pathology.
The two principal arteries supplying the structures of the head and neck. They ascend in the neck, one on each side, and at the level of the upper border of the thyroid cartilage, each divides into two branches, the external (CAROTID ARTERY, EXTERNAL) and internal (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL) carotid arteries.
