  1. 1. Thoracic Aortic Surgery Epidemiology, Outcomes, and Prevention of Cerebral Complications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Christian Olsson; Stefan Thelin; Jan van der Linden; [2006]
    Keywords : Surgery; Aorta; Thoracic; Aortic aneurysms; Aortic disease; Cardiovascular surgical procedures; Epidemiology; Registries; Treatment outcome; Survival analysis; Cerebral infarction; Near-infrared spectroscopy; Quality of life; Perfusion; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : The mortality of thoracic aortic diseases (mainly aneurysms and dissections) is high, even with surgical treatment. Epidemiology and long-term outcomes are incompletely investigated. Stroke is a major complication contributing to mortality, morbidity, and possibly to reduced quality of life. READ MORE

  2. 2. Familial thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections studies on genotype and phenotype

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Matias Hannuksela; Bo Carlberg; Bengt Johansson; Eva-Lena Stattin; Anders Gottsäter; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Thoracic aorta; familial aortic aneurysm; familial aortic dissection; genetics; aortic stiffness;

    Abstract : Background: Thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections (TAAD) have a genetic component with an estimated 20-25% of the patients having a positive family history. An aneurysm often precedes a dissection. Acute aortic dissections are associated with high mortality and morbidity, even when operated on. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modeling of Intraluminal Surfaces of Thoracic Aortas

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Johan Bondesson; [2020]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aneurysm; TEVAR; bird-beaking; cardiac pulsatility; geometric modeling; surface curvature; endograft; stereolithographic surface; dissection; Thoracic aorta;

    Abstract : Vascular diseases are getting more and more common as a result of modern-day lifestyle and the fact that the population is getting older. One of the newest treatments for vascular diseases such as aneurysms and dissections is endovascular repair with endografting. READ MORE

  4. 4. Clinical Aspects on Chimney Stent Graft Technique in Endovascular Repair of the Aorta

    University dissertation from Vascular Diseases, Lund University

    Author : Adel BinJabr; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chimney stent graft; chimney graft; chimney graft technique; snorkel technique; endovascular aortic repair; thoracic endovascular aortic repair; endoleak; patency; rupture; urgent; stent-graft; stent; graft; aorta; computed tomography; ultrasound; stenosis; EVAR; TEVAR; CTA; MRI; AAA; TAAA; supraaortic; visceral; aneurysm; dissection; mycotic infection; stent-graft infection; follow-up; endovascular complication; sandwich technique; periscope graft; periscope graft technique.;

    Abstract : Introduction: Open repair of the aorta carries a high risk for morbidity and mortality especially in the elderly population and in patients unfit for major surgery. Endovascular aortic repair is safe, durable and effective when there is adequate proximal and distal sealing zone for the aortic stent graft. READ MORE

  5. 5. Chlamydia pneumoniae in Aortic Valve Sclerosis and Thoracic Aortic Disease Aspects of Pathogenesis and Therapy

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Christina Nyström-Rosander; Kenneth Persson; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Communicable diseases; Chlamydia pneumoniae; aortic valve sclerosis; trace elements; thoracic aorta; antibiotics; Polymerase Chain Reaction PCR ; electron microscopy EM ; Infektionssjukdomar; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Infectious diseases; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Infektionssjukdomar; infektionssjukdomar; Infectious Diseases;

    Abstract : The obligate intracellular bacterium Chlamydia pneumoniae (Cp), a common human pathogen, has been associated with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. The aetiology of non-rheumatic aortic valve sclerosis has, however, not been clarified. READ MORE
