To describe the safety, possible complications and technical success of different technical methods and different embolic materials in the endovascular management of visceral artery aneury...
This study will assess the initial feasibility of the GORE® EXCLUDER® Thoracoabdominal Branch Endoprosthesis (TAMBE Device) in the treatment of Aortic Aneurysms Involving the Visceral Br...
Aortic aneurysms represent the most common and dangerous aortic diseases. Although conventional aortic repair techniques cure the disease, there is a high risk of paraplegia particularly i...
Since the development of multibranched endografts a novel therapeutic option for the management of thoracoabdominal and para-renal aortic aneurysms was made accessible.1 The introduction o...
INSIGHT is a postmarket clinical follow-up study in the European Union. The purpose of the study is to continue to evaluate the safety and effectiveness/performance of Incraft in subjects...
Visceral artery aneurysms are an uncommon clinical problem with aneurysms of the celiac artery only making up a small percentage of all visceral artery aneurysms. The more common splenic and hepatic a...
Aneurysms of the abdominal visceral arteries are infrequently encountered. Jejunal artery aneurysm (JAA) is one of the rarest visceral aneurysms, especially in young patients. Endovascular surgery ten...
Diabetes mellitus is associated with both microvascular and macrovascular complications, which can result in visceral aneurysms as for example splenic artery aneurysms: in their management, an endovas...
Recently, there has been a shift towards elective endovascular repair of visceral artery aneurysms (VAAs). Transcatheter embolization (TE) and covered stenting (CS) represent the two most used endovas...
Whilst the aneurysm of the splenic artery represents the third most common abdominal arterial aneurysm being next to the aortic and iliac aneurysms, the aneurysm of the gastroepiploic artery is extrem...
Small masses of chromaffin cells found near the SYMPATHETIC GANGLIA along the ABDOMINAL AORTA, beginning cranial to the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) or renal arteries and extending to the level of the aortic bifurcation or just beyond. They are also called the organs of Zuckerkandl and sometimes called aortic bodies (not to be confused with AORTIC BODIES in the THORAX). The para-aortic bodies are the dominant source of CATECHOLAMINES in the FETUS and normally regress after BIRTH.
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.
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.
Counterpulsation in which a pumping unit synchronized with the patient's electrocardiogram rapidly fills a balloon in the aorta with helium or carbon dioxide in early diastole and evacuates the balloon at the onset of systole. As the balloon inflates, it raises aortic diastolic pressure, and as it deflates, it lowers aortic systolic pressure. The result is a decrease in left ventricular work and increased myocardial and peripheral perfusion.
Small clusters of chemoreceptive and supporting cells located near the ARCH OF THE AORTA; the PULMONARY ARTERIES; and the coronary arteries. The aortic bodies sense PH; CARBON DIOXIDE; and oxygen concentrations in the BLOOD and participate in the control of RESPIRATION. The aortic bodies should not be confused with the PARA-AORTIC BODIES in the abdomen (which are sometimes also called aortic bodies).
