  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm calcification and thrombus volume are not associated with outcome following endovascular Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm repair
    European radiology, 2014
    Co-Authors: Divyajeet Rai, Brendan Wisniowski, Barbara Bradshaw, Ramesh Velu, Patrik Tosenovsky, Francis Quigley, Philip J. Walker, Jonathan Golledge
    Abstract:

    Objectives Aortic calcification and thrombus have been postulated to worsen outcome following endovascular Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm repair (EVAR). The purpose of this study was to assess the association of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) calcification and thrombus volume with outcome following EVAR using a reproducible, quantifiable computed tomography (CT) assessment protocol.

  • animal models of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm and their role in furthering management of human disease
    Cardiovascular Pathology, 2011
    Co-Authors: Alexandra F Trollope, Joseph V Moxon, Corey S Moran, Jonathan Golledge
    Abstract:

    Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm is a common degenerative disorder associated with sudden death due to Aortic rupture. Current therapy is limited to open surgical repair of the aorta or endovascular placement of covered stents to exclude the Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm from the circulation. A number of different animal models have been developed in order to study Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm in an effort to advance current management deficiencies. Large animal models have been mostly used to assist in developing novel methods to surgically treat Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms. Small animal models, particularly those developed in rodents, have been employed to further the understanding of the mechanisms involved in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm in order to identify potential new medical treatments. It is expected that findings from these animal models will contribute importantly to new treatments for human Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm. This review explores the animal models which are used in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm research and highlights their advantages and disadvantages.

  • angiopoietins Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm and atherosclerosis
    Atherosclerosis, 2011
    Co-Authors: Alexandra F Trollope, Jonathan Golledge
    Abstract:

    Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) and atherosclerosis are common causes of mortality and morbidity in an aging population. Angiogenesis is believed to contribute to the development and progression of these diseases. Angiopoietins (angpts) are known to be important regulators of angiogenesis. Angpts can also influence inflammation and have been shown to possess both pro-atherosclerotic and atheroprotective effects. This review explores the potential roles that the angpts play in the development and progression of AAA and atherosclerosis.

  • Endovascular treatment of huge saccular Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm in a young Behcet patient: mid-term result
    BMC Medical Imaging, 2002
    Co-Authors: Ramazan Kutlu, Oner Gulcan, Ahmet Akbulut, Riza Turkoz, Tamer Baysal
    Abstract:

    Background Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm formation is among the arterial complications of Behcet’s disease. Weakness and fragility of Aortic walls leads to the development of arterial complications like pseudoAneurysms. Case Presentation A case of huge saccular Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm in a young Behcet patient who was successfully treated with endovascular stent graft placement is reported, diagnostic and interventional procedures are discussed, and mid-term follow-up results are presented. Conclusions Endovascular treatment of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm complications of young Behcet patients who are not suitable for open surgery and need intervention could be an alternative treatment modality even without performing preprocedural angiography.

  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm.
    American family physician, 2015
    Co-Authors: Brian Keisler, Chuck Carter
    Abstract:

    Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm refers to Abdominal Aortic dilation of 3.0 cm or greater. The main risk factors are age older than 65 years, male sex, and smoking history. Other risk factors include a family history of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, coronary arteartery disease, hypertension, peripheral artery disease, and previous myocardial infainfarction. Diagnosis may be made by physical examination, an incidental finding on imaging, or ultrasonography. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force released updated recommendations for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm screening in 2014. Men 65 to 75 years of age with a history of smoking should undergo one-time screening with ultrasonography based on evidence that screening will improve Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm-related mortality in this population. Men in this age group without a history of smoking may benefit if they have other risk factors (e.g., family history of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, other vascular Aneurysms, coronary arteartery disease). There is inconclusive evidence to recommend screening for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm in women 65 to 75 years of age with a smoking history. Women without a smoking history should not undergo screening because the harms likely outweigh the benefits. Persons who have a stable Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm should undergo regular surveillance or operative intervention depending on Aneurysm size. Surgical intervention by open or endovascular repair is the primary option and is typically reserved for Aneurysms 5.5 cm in diameter or greater. There are limited options for medical treatment beyond risk factor modification. Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm is a medical emergency presenting with hypotension, shooting Abdominal or back pain, and a pulsatile Abdominal mass. It is associated with high prehospitalization mortality. Emergent surgical intervention is indicated for a rupture but has a high operative mortality rate.
