Prosthetic replacement of the ascending aorta (AA) can potentially modify energy propagation to the distal aorta and contribute to adverse aortic remodelling. This preliminary study employed intra-ope...
The authors describe the transapical deployment of a thoracic endograft to exclude a saphenous vein graft proximal anastomotic pseudoaneurysm following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in a 63-y...
An endovascular approach to the management of a ruptured plaque in the ascending aorta may be an alternative to open surgery in high-risk patients. This option may become inevitable due to the number ...
It is known that the elasticity of the thoracic aorta decreases when it is covered with endografts. It remains to be clarified, however, whether endografts in the descending aorta affect aortic stiffe...
This study investigated hemodynamic changes in the thoracic aorta and aortic arch branches before and after aortic valve replacement (AVR) by 4D-flow MRI in patients with aortic valve stenosis (AS). T...
Aim of this study is to measure length of the ascending aorta in adults and to investigate the clinical implication of 'elongation' of the aorta.
The aim of our study was to evaluate the impact of aortic root replacement by a graft on the elastic properties of the descending thoracic aorta using cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (M...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the accuracy and reliability of intra-operative TEE after the induction of anesthesia when assessing proximal thoracic aorta diameters in a cohort of a...
The ascending aorta conducts blood from the heart to the rest of the body. The ascending aorta can become enlarged, and the risk of tearing and rupturing becomes higher with larger aorta. ...
Open Repair Versus Branched Endograft Repair for Treatment of Residual Chronic Aortic Arch Dissection During Follow-up After Open Type A Acute Ascending Aorta Replacement: Results From an International Multicenter Study.
This study aims to evaluate peri-operative mortality and main post-operative complications (for example cardiovascular, respiratory and renal) in patients treated with frozen elephant trun...
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.
The valve between the left ventricle and the ascending aorta which prevents backflow into the left ventricle.
Pathological condition characterized by the backflow of blood from the ASCENDING AORTA back into the LEFT VENTRICLE, leading to regurgitation. It is caused by diseases of the AORTIC VALVE or its surrounding tissue (aortic root).
The downward displacement of the cuspal or pointed end of the trileaflet AORTIC VALVE causing misalignment of the cusps. Severe valve distortion can cause leakage and allow the backflow of blood from the ASCENDING AORTA back into the LEFT VENTRICLE, leading to aortic regurgitation.
