Wortham, "Coronary arterial ectasia: Increased prevalence in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm
as compared to occlusive atherosclerotic peripheral vascular disease," American Heart Journal, vol.
Medical history included hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, stroke, peripheral vascular disease (PVD), and an ascending aortic aneurysm
. She lived independently with Katz index of 6/6.
A ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm
(AAA) is a catastrophic event that carries a very high mortality.
Cardiothoracic surgery agreed with the diagnosis of ascending aortic aneurysm
and bronchopulmonary fistula; however due to his poor functional status and overall frailty the risk of surgery outweighed the benefits; hence surgical intervention was not pursued.
Here, we present a case of infected suprarenal aortic aneurysm
with a nearly occluded celiac artery and superior mesenteric artery treated using an endovascular technique to preserve collateral in the retroperitoneal space from the inferior mesenteric artery for supplying visceral organs.
Abdominal aortic aneurysm
(AAA) is a common degenerative cardiovascular disease.
Objective: To compare ultrasonography (US) and computed tomography (CT) data for evaluation of abdominal aortic aneurysm
The commercialization of innovative grafts such as fenestrated aortic stent grafts has further broadened the treatment options for aortic aneurysm
, thereby increasing the market for aortic stent grafts.
Endologix announced that it has received Investigational Device Exemption approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration to commence a new pivotal study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Nellix Chimney EndoVascular Aneurysm Sealing System for the endovascular treatment of complex abdominal aortic aneurysms
The ChEVAS system is an endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm
therapy designed to combine the Nellix 3.5 endograft with parallel visceral stents to enable treatment of patients with juxta-renal, para-renal, and suprarenal AAA.
Increasing aging population and prevalence of aortic aneurysm
are the key factors expected to impel the growth of the Aortic Stents Grafts Market.
"As soon as a thoracic aortic aneurysm
is discovered, the patient should see a cardiologist with expertise in aortic disease.
