Thoracic aortic aneurysm gene dictionary.

Stefanie Rohde, Mohammad A Zafar, Bulat A Ziganshin, John A Elefteriades,

Thoracic aortic aneurysm is typically clinically silent, with a natural history of progressive enlargement until a potentially lethal complication such as rupture or dissection occurs. Underlying genetic predisposition strongly influences the risk of thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection. Familial cases are more virulent, have a higher rate of aneurysm growth, ... Read more >>

Discrepancies in Measurement of the Thoracic Aorta: JACC Review Topic of the Week.

John A Elefteriades, Sandip K Mukherjee, Hamid Mojibian,

Clinicians often encounter discrepant measurements of the ascending aorta that impede, complicate, and impair appropriate clinical assessment-including key issues of presence or absence of aortic growth, rate of growth, and need for surgical intervention. These discrepancies may arise within a single modality (computed tomography scan, magnetic resonance imaging, or echocardiography) ... Read more >>

Cine-Computed Tomography for the Evaluation of Prosthetic Heart Valve Function.

Charles Hsu, Katerina Bourganos, Mohammad A Zafar, Steffen Huber, Joelle Buntin, Bulat A Ziganshin, Hamid Mojibian, John A Elefteriades,

BACKGROUND:After aortic valve replacement (AVR), suspected prosthetic valve dysfunction (mechanical or biological) may arise based on echocardiographic transvalvular velocities and gradients, leading to reoperative surgical intervention being considered. Our experience has found that 4-dimensional (space and time) image reconstruction of ECG-gated computed tomography, termed cine-CT, may be helpful in such ... Read more >>

The Genetics of Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms and Dissection: A Clinical Perspective.

Nicolai P Ostberg, Mohammad A Zafar, Bulat A Ziganshin, John A Elefteriades,

Thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection (TAAD) affects many patients globally and has high mortality rates if undetected. Once thought to be solely a degenerative disease that afflicted the aorta due to high pressure and biomechanical stress, extensive investigation of the heritability and natural history of TAAD has shown a clear ...

Left atrial-femoral artery (LA-FA) bypass with a centrifugal pump and no oxygenator is commonly used for descending and thoracoabdominal aortic (DTAA) operations, mitigating the deleterious effects of cross-clamping. We present our initial experience performing DTAA replacement under LA-FA (left-to-left) cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) with an oxygenator. DTAA replacement under LA-FA bypass ... Read more >>
