  • A Comprehensive Research Schema for the Characterization of Aortic Aneurysms. [Journal Article]
    Int J Angiol. 2023 Mar; 32(1):34-42.Alslaim H, Sanampudi S, … Winkler M
  • A robust, accurate, and standardized approach to measurement of the aorta is critical to improve the predictive accuracy of these aortic measurements, and to investigate other aortic imaging biomarkers. Developing a comprehensive and generic schema for characterization of the aorta to enable investigators to standardize data that are collected across all aorta research. A systematic review of the…
  • Circulatory Arrest for Traumatic Brachiocephalic Artery Pseudoaneurysm Repair. [Journal Article]
    Tex Heart Inst J. 2023 Jan 01; 50(1)Hynes CF, Kotkar KD
  • Blunt traumatic injuries to the brachiocephalic artery require surgical management. The operative technique used depends on the location of the injury, the patient's hemodynamic stability, and the surgeon's experience. Perfusion strategy can facilitate vascular control of the aortic arch and branch vessels. This report presents an urgent repair of a proximal posterior blunt traumatic brachiocepha…
  • Are acute type A aortic dissections atherosclerotic? [Journal Article]
    Front Cardiovasc Med. 2022; 9:1032755.Grewal N, Dolmaci O, … Poelmann RE
  • Type A aortic dissections (TAAD) are devastating aortic complications. Patients with Marfan syndrome, a bicuspid aortic valve or a thoracic aortic aneurysm have an increased risk to develop a TAAD. These predisposing conditions are characterized by a histologically thin intimal layer and hardly any atherosclerosis. Little is known about the susceptibility for atherosclerosis in patients with a ty…
  • Iliac Branch Devices in the Repair of Ruptured Aorto-iliac Aneurysms: A Multicenter Study. [Journal Article]
    J Endovasc Ther. 2023 Jan 22 [Online ahead of print]Karelis A, Sonesson B, … Dias NV
  • CONCLUSIONS: This multicenter study demonstrates that ruptured aortoiliac aneurysms do not necessarily require mandatory occlusion of hypogastric arteries. Iliac branch devices are shown to be a valid alternative in highly selected cases, with good midterm results, even if reinterventions are required in a significant proportion of patients.
  • Intermediate outcomes following arch reconstruction with frozen elephant trunk, a single centre study. [Journal Article]
    J Cardiothorac Surg. 2023 Jan 22; 18(1):44.Dahl TS, Lindblom RPF
  • CONCLUSIONS: Postoperative dialysis was found to be a predictor of in-hospital mortality, while both dialysis as well as reoperation due to bleeding and/or visceral ischemia increased the risk for overall mortality, irrespective of preoperative diagnosis. Previous or current smoking appeared to be associated with negative outcomes regarding both in-hospital and overall mortality during follow-up. Trial registration Retrospectively enrolled.
  • Molecular Mechanisms in Genetic Aortopathy-Signaling Pathways and Potential Interventions. [Review]
    Int J Mol Sci. 2023 Jan 16; 24(2)Dong CX, Malecki C, … Jeremy R
  • Thoracic aortic disease affects people of all ages and the majority of those aged <60 years have an underlying genetic cause. There is presently no effective medical therapy for thoracic aneurysm and surgery remains the principal intervention. Unlike abdominal aortic aneurysm, for which the inflammatory/atherosclerotic pathogenesis is well established, the mechanism of thoracic aneurysm is less u…
  • Molecular and Cellular Mechanisms Involved in Aortic Wall Aneurysm Development. [Review]
    Diagnostics (Basel). 2023 Jan 10; 13(2)Bararu Bojan Bararu I, Pleșoianu CE, … Ciocoiu M
  • Aortic aneurysms represent a very common pathology that can affect any segment of the aorta. These types of aneurysms can be localized on the thoracic segment or on the abdominal portion, with the latter being more frequent. Though there are similarities between thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms, these pathologies are distinct entities. In this article, we undertook a review regarding the d…
  • ADAMTS-7 deficiency attenuates thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection in mice. [Journal Article]
    J Mol Med (Berl). 2023 Jan 20 [Online ahead of print]Gong Z, Huang J, … Kong W
  • Thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection (TAAD) is a life-threatening cardiovascular disease with severe extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling that lacks efficient early stage diagnosis and nonsurgical therapy. A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motif 7 (ADAMTS-7) is recognized as a novel locus for human coronary artery atherosclerosis. Previous work by us and others showed th…
  • Augmentation Index in Patients with Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm: A Matched Case-Control Study. [Journal Article]
    J Cardiovasc Dev Dis. 2022 Dec 23; 10(1)Baumgartner P, Rejmer P, … Kohler M
  • Thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA) may be associated with complications such as rupture and dissection, which can lead to a fatal outcome. Increased central arterial stiffness has been proposed to be present in patients with TAA compared to unmatched controls. We aimed to assess whether wall properties in patients with TAA are also altered when compared to a matched control group. Applanation tonome…
  • Preparing the spinal cord - priming or preconditioning? A systematic review of experimental studies. [Review]
    Scand Cardiovasc J. 2023 12; 57(1):2166100.Herajärvi J, Juvonen T
  • Objectives. Paraplegia is devastating complication associated with thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair. Vast evidence has been gathered on pre-, peri- and postoperative protective adjuncts aiming to minimize spinal cord ischemia. This review focuses on the pretreatment phase of open surgical or endovascular aortic procedures and gathers the experimental data on the interventional…
