Bicuspid Aortic Valve related aortopathy is known to be associated with ascending aortic aneurysm and coarctation of aorta. Surgical correction of the combined entity as a double stage procedure has its own set of challenges. Single stage repair for the same has been tried since 1980 with variable success rates. Placement of extra anatomic bypass graft for coarctation repair in different orientations have been discussed in the literature but whether the procedure is feasible without any undue risks when combined with the surgical correction of the aortic root and ascending aorta pathology is a subject of debate.

Ascending aortic aneurysm is usually associated with aortic valve diseases, especially aortic stenosis. The standard technique involves the substitution of the dilated aortic segment with a Dacron tub...
We report a case of a female 57 years old with dextrocardia and a solitary kidney. A patch aortoplasty for isthmic aortic coartaction repair was performed 40 years before she was admitted to our depar...
Management of ruptured ascending aortic aneurysm causing hemodynamic compromise represents a major challenge, especially during induction of anesthesia. We present a case of ruptured ascending aortic ...
Since the discovery of penicillin, the incidence of tertiary syphilis dramatically has decreased. However, cases of cardiovascular complications of syphilis still are present. Ascending aortic aneurys...
This video demonstrates aortic valve repair during ascending aneurysm replacement. A 71-year-old male has congestive heart failure, Grade 3 aortic insufficiency (AI), and a 5.4 cm ascending aneurysm. ...
This is a systemic research of Chinese aortic coarctation patients, aiming to determine risk factors and serial biomarkers of aortic coarctation in prognosis.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether Cheatham Platinum bare metal stents are safe and effective in the treatment of native and recurrent aortic coarctation in selected childre...
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. ...
Despite aortic coarctation (CoA) repair these patients have cardiovascular complications and coronary artery disease is the most common cause of death.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and efficacy of three main perfusion methods in surgical repair of coarctation of aorta with aortic arch hypoplasia in infants.
A birth defect characterized by the narrowing of the AORTA that can be of varying degree and at any point from the transverse arch to the iliac bifurcation. Aortic coarctation causes arterial HYPERTENSION before the point of narrowing and arterial HYPOTENSION beyond the narrowed portion.
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.
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.
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.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
