To compare CO values obtained by the lithium indicator dilution method and pulse power analysis before, during and after anaesthesia and surgery for the elective repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms. This will enable us to determine how often and when calibration of the pulse power analysis derived CO is required.

Clinical Trials [226 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Aneurysm Wall Histology Registry

The purpose of this prospective registry is to determine if patients harboring intracranial aneurysms have any predictive markers between aneurysm wall tissue, cerebrospinal fluid and bloo...

Dutch Randomised Endovascular Aneurysm Management (DREAM-) Trial

The purpose of this trial is to assess whether the new endovascular repair technique of the abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is an adequate substitute of the conventional AAA repair.

Follow-up of Endovascular Aneurysm Treatment - The FEAT Trial

After endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, life-long follow-up is needed to monitor the effectiveness of exclusion of the aneurysm sac from blood flow. For this reason, aneurysm ...

Impact of Platelet Activation in Intracranial Aneurysm Rupture Risk - PLAQRAN

Sub arachnoid hemorrhage consecutive to intracranial aneurysm rupture is a devastating disease. Predictors of intracranial aneurysm rupture are limited and focus mainly on size and locatio...

Standardized Long Term Follow-up of Patients After Endovascular Embolization of a Brain Aneurysm

The time-frame and the follow-up elements after embolization of brain aneurysm are not standardized. Therefore, few reliable follow-up data are available for these patients. This study ai...

Intracranial Aneurysm Wall Enhancement Associated with Aneurysm Rupture: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Aneurysm wall enhancement (AWE) on magnetic resonance vessel wall imaging has been proposed as an imaging marker of aneurysm wall inflammation and instability. We performed a systematic review and met...

Giant Aneurysm of the Ascending Aorta Requiring Emergency Repair in a Newborn Baby.

Congenital aneurysm of the ascending aorta is a rare cardiovascular pathology and usually associated with well-known connective tissue disorders. In this report, we present an idiopathic ascending aor...

Case report of a large common hepatic artery aneurysm.

Heparic artery aneurysm is rare, but appropriate treatment is mandatory. We report a 50-year-old woman with an asymptomatic large hepatic artery aneurysm. The aneurysm was found as a result of abdomin...

Clinico-radiologic factors in paraclinoid aneurysms associated with aneurysm rupture: A CTA study.

Paraclinoid aneurysms are commonly noted as incidental findings by computed tomography angiography (CTA), and there exists disagreement in the literature as to which patient and aneurysm characteristi...

AGD: Aneurysm Gene Database.

An aneurysm is an outward bulge on an arterial wall. Aneurysms are becoming a serious public health concern as the worldwide population ages. Unfortunately, no effective drugs have been developed for ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Aneurysm due to growth of microorganisms in the arterial wall, or infection arising within preexisting arteriosclerotic aneurysms.

Not an aneurysm but a well-defined collection of blood and CONNECTIVE TISSUE outside the wall of a blood vessel or the heart. It is the containment of a ruptured blood vessel or heart, such as sealing a rupture of the left ventricle. False aneurysm is formed by organized THROMBUS and HEMATOMA in surrounding tissue.

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.

The tearing or bursting of the weakened wall of the aneurysmal sac, usually heralded by sudden worsening pain. The great danger of a ruptured aneurysm is the large amount of blood spilling into the surrounding tissues and cavities, causing HEMORRHAGIC SHOCK.

Pathological outpouching or sac-like dilatation in the wall of any blood vessel (ARTERIES or VEINS) or the heart (HEART ANEURYSM). It indicates a thin and weakened area in the wall which may later rupture. Aneurysms are classified by location, etiology, or other characteristics.
