Sudden respiratory arrest resulting from brainstem embolism in a patient undergoing endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair

Anesthesia and Analgesia
M ZauggE R Schmid

Abstract

Surgery on the aorta is a great challenge for the anesthesiologist, even with newly developed and less invasive stent-graft procedures. The case of a fatal cerebral embolism during endovascular repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm is reported, and the potential mechanisms underlying this unexpected complication are discussed.

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.
