Surgery of aneurysm of the thoracic aorta. Operative results in 47 cases (author's transl)

Journal de chirurgie

The authors report personal experience of surgical treatment of 47 aneurysms of the thoracic aorta, showing that the symptoms, the etiology, the treatment and the prognosis are variable depending on the site of the aneurysm. One may note regression of syphilis as a cause and an increase in the number of degenerative and traumatic aneurysms. In aneurysms of the ascending aorta, total replacement of the ascending aorta with reimplantation of the coronary arteries, according to a simplified technic, seems to give the best immediate and long term results.

Cardiac Aneurysm

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.


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.
