While left ventricular dysfunction, aortitis
, aortic regurgitation, pericarditis and cardiomegaly, involvement of conduction system and increased cardiovascular risk have been well-recognized in patients with AS, myocardial involvement still remains less well-defined.
Exclusion criteria included non-[.sup.18]F-FDG scans and subjects with suspected large vessel vasculitis, aortitis
or thoracic aortic grafts to minimize bias arising in vascular disease.
and bilateral ureteral obstruction after endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm.
Pathologically, most of the IgG4-related aneurysms and aortitis
cases showed IgG4-positive cells and eosinophil infiltration in the adventitia, but some cases also showed infiltration in the intima in addition to the adventitia, leading to aneurysm formation.
The fact that the patient had no risk factors for developing atherosclerotic aortic aneurysm such as hypertension, smoking and advanced age could suggest that he might have had CMV aortitis
from the beginning.
Prolonged survival of an elderly woman with Salmonella dublin aortitis
and conservative treatment.
Inflammatory aneurysms are common complications of IgG4-related aortitis
, which may present with a pulsatile mass, low-grade fever, back pain, or aneurysm rupture.
This disease is also referred as pulseless disease, aortic arch syndrome, young female arteritis, and idiopathic aortitis
. (3) We present a case report of a diagnosed TA with hypertension and multiple cardiac morphological abnormalities posted for total laparoscopic hysterectomy, which was successfully managed by us by undertaking a precisely tailored induction and maintenance protocol for general anesthesia (GA).
Predictors of left ventricular dysfunction in patients with Takayasu' s or giant cell aortitis
. Clin Exp Rheumatol 2004; 22: 41-5.
Conditions that can albeit less commonly lead to primary AEF include syphilis, tuberculosis, mycotic infection, and collagen vascular disease, where the chronic inflammation leads to aortitis
, erosion, and formation of the fistula.
(5,19) Main comorbid diseases are osteoporosis, uveitis (anterior), aortitis
, aortic insufficiency, psoriasis, inflammatory bowel disease, spinal injuries, cauda equina syndrome, erectile dysfunction, restrictive lung disease, ischemic heart disease, stroke, joint replacement, hyperlipidemia/metabolic syndrome, surgery, major depression, and alcoholism.
Echocardiographic findings and cardiac surgical implications of aortitis
and valvulitis in Behcet's disease.
