939 Possible Causes for Coarctation of the Aorta

  • Aortic Stenosis with Bicuspid Valve

    THIS IS CASE 4,555 OF 4,932 JUMP TO CASE 4,554 Coarctation of the Aorta with Dilated Left Subclavian Artery 4,553 Type A Dissection Nicely Seen with Gated Acquisition CURRENT[] Aortic dissection: Bleeding into and along the wall of the aorta Coarctation of the aorta: Narrowing of the aorta at some point along its length[] Patients with bicuspid aortic valve are also at higher risk of aortic coarctation, an abnormal narrowing of the thoracic aorta [4].[]

  • Acute Kidney Failure

    Deposits of iron and hemosiderosis in the kidney have been observed in diseases with intravascular hemolysis, including paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria, and valvular heart diseases and prosthetic heart valve implants. However, the decrease in kidney function associated with hemolysis caused by cardiac valvular[…][]

  • Hypertensive Heart Disease

    If coarctation of the aorta is the hypertension etiological factor, radial-femoral delay can be observed.[] In the cases of coarctation of the aorta, the blood pressure appears higher when measured at the higher extremities than the lower extremities.[]

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    Abstract We report a case of 18-year-old female patient with large patent ductus arteriosus (PDA)-preductal coarctation of descending thoracic aorta.[] Possible long-term complications include coarctation (narrowing of the aorta) or recurrence of the vessel although both problems are extremely rare.[] […] of the aorta, and pulmonary atresia.[]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    […] of the aorta fibromuscular dysplasia INVESTIGATIONS Bedside ECG: tall peaked T waves, ST depression, prolonged QT, arrhythmia Echo: neurogenic cardiomyopathy Laboratory hyponatraemia[] MR Angiography MRA can be used to screen for intracranial aneurysms in asymptomatic patients who have a family history of aneurysms or who have polycystic kidneys, coarctation[] […] of aorta *2% of the family members of patients will develop SAH.[]

  • Turner Syndrome

    We describe hereunder a case of TS diagnosed with coarctation of the aorta due to high blood pressure detected by accident.[] METHODS: In this multicenter, retrospective cohort study, all patients with TS and a coarctation of the aorta, treated with percutaneous stent implantation were included.[] One patient, now aged 28 years, was referred for short stature at age 13 years after an operation for coarctation of the aorta.[]

  • Ventricular Septal Defect

    METHODS: This was a retrospective chart review of 21 consecutive neonates and infants undergoing single-stage repair of coarctation of the aorta and VSD.[] Complications include aortic valve obstruction, coarctation of the aorta. Subpulmonic: more common in Asian populations. Lie just beneath the two arterial trunks.[] Abstract BACKGROUND: We sought to compare clinical outcomes and resource utilization for two surgical approaches for single-stage repair of coarctation of the aorta and ventricular[]

  • Left Ventricular Hypertrophy

    Abstract The work-up of a previously asymptomatic 72-year-old man presenting with sudden cardiac death revealed a coarctation of the aorta as the cause of arterial hypertension[] […] of the aorta Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy Handy Tips Voltage criteria alone are not diagnostic of LVH ECG changes are an insensitive means of detecting LVH (patients with[] […] pattern: ST depression and T wave inversion in the lateral leads Causes of LVH Hypertension (most common cause) Aortic stenosis Aortic regurgitation Mitral regurgitation Coarctation[]

  • Berry Aneurysm

    Aneurysm formation is also seen in the setting of mycotic aneurysms, as well as in association with some congenital disorders, including coarctation of the aorta, Marfan's[] Risk factors include: Family history of cerebral aneurysms Medical problems such as polycystic kidney disease , coarctation of the aorta , and endocarditis High blood pressure[] Risk factors include: Family history of cerebral aneurysms Medical problems such as polycystic kidney disease, coarctation of the aorta, and endocarditis High blood pressure[]

  • Mycotic Aneurysm

    […] of the aorta is a rare congenital anomaly usually accompanying bicuspid aortic valve.[] Adult patients with aortic coarctation can be managed either with surgery or percutaneously.[] Author information 1 Department of Cardiology, Ahi Evren Chest and Cardiovascular Surgery Education and Research Hospital, Trabzon, Turkey.
