CFD Analysis to Evaluate Hemodynamic Parameters in a Growing Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

Vincenzo Filardi, PhD, From University of Messina, Italy.

Knowledge of the regional distribution of wall thickness and failure properties in an AAA can help in understanding its natural history, developing methods to predict rupture risk, and designing vascular prostheses.

Endovascular Treatment of Popliteal Artery Entrapment Syndrome: Technical Aspects and Results of Endovascular Treatment With Surgical Release of Popliteal Artery

Ugur Ozkan, MD; Merve Ozen, MD; Gurkan Ozkoc, MD, From the Baskent University Faculty of Medicine, Adana, Turkey.

Endovascular treatment with surgical decompression of popliteal artery is a potential alternative treatment for PAES that is less invasive and offers an alternative to conventional bypass surgery, especially for young patients.

Giant Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

Tuesday 06/04/13 | 9,464 reads

ABSTRACT: Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) occur in up to 9% of adults older than 65 years of age, and the most important risk factors for the development of AAA are smoking, male sex, and advancing age. Aneurysm size is the strongest predictor of the risk of rupture with 30% to 50% annual risk of rupture for AAAs >8.0 cm in size. We report a case of asymptomatic giant AAA that measured 14 cm in diameter.
