This clinical trial is a prospective, multicenter, non-blinded, non-randomized study designed to assess the RelayPro thoracic endografts in the treatment of acute, complicated type B aorti...
The study evaluated the prevalence, presentation, management, and prognosis of coronary heart disease differ according to sex.
Acute type A aortic dissection is a frequent (3 cases per 100 000 people per year) and severe (spontaneous mortality 70%), needing an emergency surgical treatment. Surgical outcomes have i...
The purpose of the study is to conduct a randomized controlled trial comparing best medical therapy (BMT) alone to BMT with thoracic endovascular aortic repair (BMT+TEVAR) for uncomplicate...
The aim of the study is to evaluate results of patients treated with the STABILISE technique for acute/subacute aortic dissection. Results and postoperative events are reported in accordan...
An acute aortic dissection of the pulmonary autograft with a free rupture of the neo-aortic wall is a rare complication after a Ross procedure. The intimal tear was localised in the noncoronary sinus ...
Valve sparing aortic root repair by reimplantation (David procedure) is an established technique in acute aortic dissection Stanford type A involving the aortic root. In DeBakey type I dissection, ...
Stanford type A acute aortic dissection requires emergency surgery. Because patients with ischemic stroke as a complication of Stanford type A acute aortic dissection do not often complain of chest or...
Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) is increasingly utilized in acute complicated type B aortic dissection (TBAD). The objective of this study is to demonstrate evidence of aortic remodeling u...
We evaluated the clinical and anatomic presentations of acute type A aortic dissection according to patient age.
Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.
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)
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).
Self report questionnaire which yields 16 scores on personality traits, such as reserved vs. outgoing, humble vs. assertive, etc.
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.
