Los aneurismas degenerativos o arterioscleróticos son los mas frecuentes, la primera causa en el caso de aneurisma aórtico abdominal. Es esta la localización. Cuando un aneurisma aórtico abdominal requiere tratamiento, es posible que el médico recomiende una reparación de aneurisma endovascular (EVAR). An aortic aneurysm is an enlargement (dilation) of the aorta to greater than times normal size. They usually cause no symptoms except when ruptured. Occasionally, there may be abdominal, back, or leg pain. They are most commonly located in the abdominal aorta, but can also be.

Screening for an aortic aneurysm so that it may be detected and treated prior zortico rupture is the best way to reduce the overall mortality of the disease. One reason for this is that elastinthe principal load-bearing protein present in the wall of the aorta, is reduced in the abdominal aorta as compared to the thoracic aorta.

Ultrasound studies are obtained on a regular basis i. The determination of surgical intervention is complex and determined on a per-case basis.

Aneurysms can be found on physical examination. CT reconstruction image of an artico aortic aneurysm. The medical management of patients with aortic aneurysms, reserved for smaller aneurysms or frail patients, involves cessation of smoking, blood pressure control, use of statins and occasionally beta blockers. When rupture occurs, massive internal bleeding results and, unless treated immediately, shock and death can occur.

Arteriovenous fistula Arteriovenous malformation Telangiectasia Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia.

As compared to open surgery, EVAR has a lower risk of death in the short term and a shorter hospital stay but may not always be an option. Decisions about repairing an aortic aneurysm are based on the balance between the risk of aneurysm rupture without treatment versus the risks of the aneurisa itself. A rapidly expanding aneurysm should under normal circumstances be operated on as soon as feasible, as it has a greater chance of rupture.


Risk of aneurysm rupture is weighed against procedural risk. Carotid artery stenosis Renal artery stenosis.

Inflammation Arteritis Aortitis Buerger’s disease. Cardiovascular disease vessels I70—I99— Screening with ultrasound is indicated in those at high risk, prevention is by decreasing risk factors such as abdomianl, and treatment is either by open or endovascular surgery. Archived from the original on The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews.

Better results are only in uncomplicated, elective descending thoracic and infrarenal aorta. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Annual mortality from ruptured aneurysms in the United States is about 15, An aortic aneurysm can occur as a result of trauma, infection, or, most commonly, from an intrinsic abnormality in the elastin and collagen components of the aortic wall.

Retrieved 2 May A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis”. Most AAA are true aneurysms that involve all three layers tunica intimatunica media and tunica adventitia. A systematic review and meta analysis found that cerebrospinal fluid drainage CFSDwhen performed in experienced centers, reduces the risk of ischemic spinal cord injury by increasing the perfusion pressure to the spinal cord.

An aortic aneurysm is an enlargement dilation of the aorta to greater than 1. Rarely, clotted blood which lines most aortic aneurysms can break off and result in an embolus.

Rupture may be indicated by the presence of free fluid in the abdomen. Medical therapy is typically reserved for smaller aneurysms or for elderly, frail patients where the risks of surgical repair exceed the risks of non-operative therapy observation alone. An aortic aneurysm can rupture from wall weakness.

Chronic venous insufficiency Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency Superior vena cava syndrome Inferior vena cava syndrome Venous ulcer. The diameter of the aneurysm, its rate of growth, the presence or absence of Marfan syndromeEhlers—Danlos syndromes or similar connective tissue disorders, and other co-morbidities are all important factors in the overall treatment.


Slowly expanding aortic aneurysms may be followed by routine diagnostic testing i. Aortic rupture is a surgical emergency, and has a high mortality even with prompt treatment. The diagnosis of an abdominal aortic aneurysm can be confirmed at the bedside by the use of ultrasound.

This can lead to inadequate blood supply to the spinal cord, resulting in paraplegia. This page was last edited on 28 Augustat Aortic aneurysms cause weakness in the wall of the aorta and increase the risk of aortic rupture.

Endovascular treatment of aortic aneurysms aneeurisma a minimally invasive alternative to open surgery repair. They are most commonly located in the abdominal aortabut can also be located in the thoracic aorta. The chance of the small aneurysm rupturing is overshadowed by the risk of cardiac complications from the procedure to repair the aneurysm. Surgery open or endovascular is the definite treatment of an aortic aneurysm.

A less invasive procedure such as endovascular aneurysm repair may be associated with fewer short-term risks to the patient fewer peri-procedural complications but secondary procedures may be necessary over long-term follow-up.

Open surgery starts with exposure of the dilated portion of the aorta via an incision in the abdomen or abdomen and check, followed by insertion of a synthetic Dacron or Gore-Tex graft tube to replace the diseased aorta.
