Ectasia Of The Ascending Thoracic Aorta
What does "minimal ectasia
versus tiny aneurysm of the P1 segment of the left posterior cerebral artery" mean??
MRI =Mild" thickening of heart muscle not HOCM.Tortuous descending aorta. Aberrant right subclavian artery which courses posterior to the trachea. ??
Mild thickening's OK: See my comment to your previous post regarding the other findings (tortuous aorta, subclavian artery). The mild thickening of the heart muscle is common, and not necessarily from HCM. It could be the effects of long-standing hypertension. Keeping ur BP low with a -pril or a -sartan (Enalapril, Valsartan, etc.) could even reverse the thickening of the heart. Thanks 4 ur question on HealthTap, & GL! ...Read more
Why coarctation of aorta in infantile, cause passes of the blood from pulmonary artery to the aorta through pda?

The most widely accepted is that aaas form due to an inflammatory process in the wall of the aorta associated with atherosclerosis. Inflammatory cells are thought to degrade structural proteins (such as elastin) in the wall of the aorta, weakening it and allowing for aneurysm formation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

1. Ct scan shows 30% stenosis in the proximal vessel, 30-50% stenosis in the mid-vessel in left anterior descending artery. What procedure is needed?
Largest AAA repaired: You shouldn't think about it as, " is it too big to repair?" many anatomic details as well as a person's overall medical condition go into the decision as to if an aneurysm can be repaired. Its overall size is not a main consideration (though if its still small, they can usually be watched without repair). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
