Endovascular surgery and pathology of the thoracic aorta

The American Heart Hospital Journal
Edward B Diethrich

Abstract

Although abdominal aortic aneurysms are the most common aortic pathology in the general population, the thoracic aorta is also a frequent site of aneurysms, chronic dissections, transections, and other potentially life-threatening pathologies. Not all of these lesions are amenable to endovascular repair; however, early evidence suggests that endovascular intervention in selected patients has a high rate of acute and midterm success. Indeed, the endovascular procedure reduces operating time and the need for blood transfusions and usually results in shorter intensive care unit and hospital stays compared with open surgery. In addition, overall rehabilitation is comparatively brief. Although these results are encouraging, no outcome data from randomized trials exists, and further study of the long-term efficacy and safety of endoluminal grafting is warranted.

Aneurysm

Aneurysms are outward distensions or bulges that occurs in a weakened wall of blood vessels. Discover the latest research on aneurysms here.

Aortic Aneurysm

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.
