Aortic Surgery for Dissection and Aortic Aneurysm

Aortic Surgery for Dissection and Aortic Aneurysm In Yeshwanthpur, Bangalore

Aorta dissection is a rupture in the inner lining of your aorta's weak spot. The main artery that carries blood from your heart which is rich in oxygen and nutrients, to the rest of your body is called the aorta. 

Why is the procedure performed?

Aortic dissection is a potentially fatal disorder that needs to be identified right away. Several different surgeries and medications are used in treatment.

What is Aortic dissection?

The fundamental artery that diverts your heart's oxygen-enriched blood to the rest of your body is called the aorta. There are three tissue layers that make up the wall of your aorta: Intima (inner layer), Media (middle layer), and Adventitia (outer layer). 

When a rip develops in the inner layer of a vulnerable spot in your aorta, an aortic autopsy starts abruptly. The inner and middle layers separate (or "dissect") as a result of blood gushing through the tear. The regular blood flow to various parts of your body may be decreased or interrupted as redirected blood flows between the tissue layers, or the aorta may totally rupture.If an aortic dissection is not promptly diagnosed and treated, it can be fatal and result in sudden death.

Types of Aortic dissection

There are mostly two kinds of Aortic dissection,

  • Stanford Type A aortic dissections: They can be immediately fatal since they happen in the initial section of the aorta, near the heart. The ascending aorta plus/minus the arch and/or the aortic valve is typically the first section of the aorta that needs to be repaired or replaced during emergency open chest surgery. This type of aortic dissection is more frequent than Type B, and it typically affects the entire length of the aorta.

  • Stanford Type B aortic dissection: This kind of tear starts further from the heart and deeper down the aorta (downward aorta beyond the arch). Similar to a type A dissection, this typically involves only the abdominal aorta and does not affect the initial portion of the aorta at the front of the chest. Depending on where exactly the dissection is and whether or not it is preventing blood flow to your organs, surgery may or may not be required right away. An endovascular stent-graft device that has been placed into the aorta can typically be used to execute these procedures.

What distinguishes an aortic aneurysm from an aortic rupture or aortic dissection?

An aortic aneurysm is a protrusion, similar to a bubble or a balloon, in a section of the aorta or throughout the entire vessel. Aortic rupture and aortic dissection can result from an aortic aneurysm. Book an appointment today for the best treatment.

The entire tear through all three layers of the aorta, similar to a rip or a hole in the aorta's wall, is known as an aortic rupture. The opening allows blood to flood the nearby bodily cavity. An aortic dissection is a tear in the inner aortic layer of the aorta's wall that allows blood to enter and progressively divides the inner and middle layers of the aorta.
