  1. 1. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, aspects on diagnosis and treatment

    Author : Kristian Smidfelt; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm; Screening; EVAR; AAA; Mortality; rAAA; Misdiagnosis; ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm; open abdomen; open repair; abdominal compartment syndrome; vacuum assisted closure;

    Abstract : Background An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is an abnormal widening of the aorta with a risk of rupture if it grows to a large diameter. Rupture is associated with massive bleeding and a poor prognosis for survival. READ MORE

  2. 2. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Aspects on how to affect mortality from rupture

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Jakob Hager; Östergötlands Läns Landsting.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; abdominal aortic aneurysm rupture AAA rAAA screening one-stop two stop prevalence risk factor cost-effectiveness;

    Abstract : Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) is a disease that mainly affects elderly men, and ruptured AAA (rAAA) is associated with a mortality of > 80%. AAA seldom gives any symptoms prior to rupture.The aims of this thesis were to investigate different aspects of how to affect mortality from rAAA. READ MORE

  3. 3. Abdominal aortic aneurysm : uncharted aspects of rupture

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Sayid Zommorodi; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Unlike intact abdominal aortic aneurysm (iAAA), ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) is a lethal condition demanding immediate resuscitation and surgical intervention. Where the former is a silent disease with slow expansion of the infrarenal aorta, rAAA is symptomatic with abdominal/back pain and possibly even hemorrhagic shock. READ MORE

  4. 4. Intra-abdominal Hypertension and Colonic Hypoperfusion after Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Unversitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Khatereh Djavani Gidlund; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Abdominal aneurysm; Intra-abdomnial hypertension; Abdominal compartment syndrome; Colonic ischaemia; Colonic hypotension; Intra-abdominal pressure; rupture abdominal aortic aneurysm; MEDICINE Surgery Surgical research Vascular surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi Kirurgisk forskning Kärlkirurgi; Kirurgi; Surgery;

    Abstract : Colonic ischaemia (CI), Intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) are devastating complications after abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) surgery. The aims of this thesis were to study the incidence and clinical consequences of IAH/ACS and the association between CI and intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) among patients undergoing OR for ruptured AAA (rAAA), to compare extraluminal pHi monitoring, with standard intra-luminal monitoring among patients operated on for AAA, and to study the frequency and clinical consequences of IAH/ACS after endovascular repair (EVAR) for rAAA.

  5. 5. Bleeding in abdominal aortic aneurysm repair

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Carl Montán; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; bleeding;

    Abstract : Background and aims: Massive bleeding in open abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair is associated with worse outcome. However, few studies have investigated specific problems related to perioperative bleeding and blood transfusion in elective or emergent AAA repair with open (OR) or endovascular (EVAR) aneurysm repair.
