Aneurysms are outward distensions or bulges that occurs in a weakened wall of blood vessels. Discover the latest research on aneurysms here.
An aortic aneurysm is the weakening and bulging of the blood vessel wall in the aorta. This causes dilatation of the aorta, which is usually asymptomatic but carries the risk of rupture and hemorrhage. Find the latest research on aortic aneurysms here.
Aneurysm refers to a bulge of the wall or lining of a vessel commonly occurring in the blood vessels at the base of the septum or within the aorta. In the heart, it usually arises from a patch of weakened tissue in a ventricular wall, which swells into a bubble filled with blood. Discover the latest research on cardiac aneurysm here.
Coronary artery aneurysms are the dilation of the coronary arteries that supply the heart tissue with blood and nutrients. The dilation exceeds 1.5 times the normal artery size. Complications can occur if these aneurysms rupture. Here is the latest research on coronary artery aneurysms.
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) can be a serious life-threatening condition if not treated. DVT results from a clot forming in one of the deep veins, usually in the lower leg. If the clot breaks free it can lead to a pulmonary embolism and/or post-thrombotic syndrome. Here is the latest research on DVT.
A dissecting aneurism is an injury in which blood enters between the intima and tunica media of the aortic wall. Often, the aorta is affected, and this is referred to as an aortic dissection. This may result in hemorrhage or in vessel occlusion and insufficient blood supply. Management is often both medical and surgical. Find the latest research on dissecting aneurisms here.
An endoleak is a leak into the aneurysm sac after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). There are 5 types of endoleaks. Discover the latest research on endoleaks here.
Iliac aneurysm is the weakness and bulging in the iliac artery wall which can be caused as a result of atherosclerosis, infections, or trauma from hip or lower-back surgery. Here is the latest research.
An infected aneurysm is a bulge on a weakened blood vessel wall that has become infected. Treatment includes antibiotics and surgical intervention. Find the latest research on infected aneurysms here.
Intracranial aneurysm is a cerebrovascular disorder which results due to a localized bulging of the cerebral artery or vein. Here is the latest research.
Microaneurysms are small outpouchings of the capillaries and can occur in various different organs. They are the first clinical sign of diabetic non-proliferative eye disease. Here is the latest research.
Myocardial rupture is a catastrophic complication of acute myocardial infarction that usually results in sudden death. Here is the latest research.
Platelets are a blood cell that can initiate clot formation in response to damage to blood vessels. Following platelet adhesion, platelets become activated before aggregating. Find the latest research on platelet activation here.
A pseudoaneurysm or false aneurysm is the pooling of blood between the two outermost layers of the blood vessel, the tunica media and tunica adventitia. Find the latest research on pseudoaneurysms here.
An aneurysm occurs when there is weakening of a blood vessel wall, which causes the formation of a bulge. Aneurysms can rupture, particularly as they become larger, which puts the patient at risk for hemorrhage. Find the latest research on ruptured aneurysms here.
Thrombosis, the formation of a blood clot inside a blood vessel that obstructs the flow of blood through the circulatory system, is thought to occur when natural hemostatic mechanisms, which help restrict the clot to the site of injury, are genetically impaired or are overwhelmed by the severity of the initial injury. Discover the latest research on hemostasis and thrombosis here.
Ventricular aneurysms are thin outpouchings that can occur in the left or right ventricle. The aneurysm may require surgical or pharmacological treatment. Discover the latest research on ventricular aneurysms here.
