  16 Diseases of the Thoracic Aorta. HUGO SPINDOLA-FRANCO, SCOTT SEGAL, BERNARD G. FISH, and MARK A. GREENBERG. Medical and surgical treatment as well as recently developed interventional catheter procedures for the treatment of aortic diseases requires precise delineation of the pathological disorders. Aortic valve disease is a condition in which the valve between the main pumping chamber of your heart (left ventricle) and the main artery to your body (aorta) doesn't work properly. Aortic valve disease sometimes may be a condition present at birth (congenital heart disease), or it may result from other causes.

New Approaches to Aortic Disease from Valve to Abdominal Bifurcation provides a complete look at aortic valve diseases from all points of view, including etiology, physiopathology, prevention, diagnosis and treatment. The book offers new insights into the aortic valve and pathology based on evidence of current diagnostic methods, treatments and post-surgery evolution. The aorta begins deep in the heart. It emerges from the top of the powerful left ventricle, curves up and over the heart in a gentle arch, then descends into the chest and through the muscular diaphragm into the abdomen (see "Thoracic aorta"). It ends around the belly button, where it splits into two smaller arteries, one for each leg.

The proximal thoracic aorta is divided into five anatomic zones that describe the landing zone for thoracic aortic endovascular repair (TEVAR) (Fig. ). 16 Zone 0 is defined as the ascending aorta and proximal aortic arch to the innominate artery. Zone 1 is defined as the aortic segment between the innominate and left carotid arteries. The aorta begins in the anterior mediastinum above the aortic valve as the ascending aorta, the most proximal portion of which is also called the aortic root. This is followed in the superior mediastinum by the aortic arch, which gives rise to the brachiocephalic by:

Diseases of the heart and thoracic aorta by Bramwell, Byrom Sir Download PDF EPUB FB2

The aorta is the largest artery in the body, extending from the heart down through the chest (thoracic aorta) and into the abdomen (abdominal aorta). It carries oxygenated blood away from the heart to the rest of the body.

Thoracic aortic disease includes aortic aneurysms and dissections, atherosclerotic disease, infections and traumatic injuries.

The heart pumps blood directly into the thoracic aorta, and the aorta then acts as a pipe to deliver blood to other blood vessels throughout the body. Weakening of the wall of this blood vessel causes the aorta to bulge, and this bulge is known as a thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA).

The aorta is the largest artery in the body. Oxygen-rich blood enters the aorta and the heart pumps the blood out of the aorta where it travels to the rest of the body via the smaller arteries that branch out from it.

When affected by disease, the aorta can split (dissection) or dilate (aneurysm) and in either case, the rupture may have fatal. Thoracic Aortic Diseases.

The aorta is the largest artery in the human body and is connected to the left ventricle of the heart. It sends the blood pumped by the heart through many branches that carry blood to all of the organs of the body.

Thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) is a ≥ 50% increase in diameter of the thoracic aorta. TAAs may dissect, compress, or erode into adjacent structures, cause thromboembolism, leak, or rupture. Median diameter at aneurysm rupture is 6 cm for ascending aneurysms and 7 .Aortic diseases contribute to the wide spectrum of arterial diseases.

They include a variety of clinical entities such as aneurysm formation, aortic sclerosis, aortic dissection, genetic disorders, aortitis, and even aortic tumours. Nowadays, a holistic view of the aorta is used, and the ascending and descending aorta up to the bifurcation can be regarded as ‘one organ’ .Echocardiography plays an important role in the diagnosis and follow-up of aortic diseases.

Evaluation of the aorta is a routine part of the standard echocardiographic examination.
