stent graft market is expected to reach over $3.7 billion by 2024, growing at an impressive CAGR of around 6% during 2018-2024.
An acute dissection of the thoracic aorta, one of the most common causes of aortic
emergencies, requires prompt diagnosis and treatment 0. The presence of dissection, the dissection type, and its complications can be determined with a sensitivity and specificity of nearly 100% through CTA. Aortic
rupture is a common and fatal complication of type B aortic
Delivered via a minimally-invasive procedure, the company's transcatheter aortic
valve replacement (TAVR) technology is approved for patients with severe aortic
stenosis who are considered at high risk for surgical valve replacement via open heart surgery.
Although uncommon, most aortic
dissections occur because high blood pressure causes the artery's wall to deteriorate.
In the Partner II trial, procedure cost was approximately $20,000 (3) higher with TAVR than surgical aortic
valve replacement performed via open heart surgery.
Atherosclerosis is the most common cause of aortic
Multidetector computed tomography was performed in all cases. Acute type A dissection was defined as any dissection that involved the ascending aorta and/or aortic
The widely accepted Stanford classifcation system for aortic
dissection is also applied to IMH and approximately 58% of IMHs are classifed as Stanford type B (1).
For the study, the team looked at 15,792 people over the age of 45 and found that one in 17 had a lifetime risk of an abdominal aortic
, Medical Xpress reported.
Intermittent hypoxemia due to right atrial compression by an ascending aortic
aneurysm is a worrisome condition, with < 1 in 3 individuals with rupture surviving after surgical intervention.
3, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- In a mouse model of moderate, sporadic aortic
aneurysm and dissection (AAD), ciprofloxacin increases susceptibility to aortic
dissection and rupture, according to a study published online July 25 in JAMA Surgery.
