48 Possible Causes for Dilatation of the Aortic Sinuses

  • Aneurysm of Sinus of Valsalva

    Review First Online: 01 December 2014 189 Downloads 3 Citations Abstract Aneurysmal dilatation of the aortic sinuses of Valsalva has been most extensively documented in the[link.springer.com] Deficiency of the aortic media where it attaches to the aortic annulus produces dilation of the aortic sinuses, usually over many years.[chdbabies.com] . [3] The defect is inherited, but frank aneurysmal dilatation is rarely seen at birth.[emedicine.com]

  • Aortic Aneurysm and Dissection

    Screening echocardiograms in both twins showed severe dilation of the proximal thoracic aorta, involving both the aortic root at the level of the sinuses of Valsalva and the[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Further imaging revealed that both brothers had marked aneurysmal dilation of the internal carotid arteries and nonspecific intracranial vascular anomalies.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]

  • Marfan Syndrome

    Abstract Patients with Marfan syndrome are at risk for ascending aortic dilation and dissection at the level of the aortic sinuses, making aortic root and valve replacement[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The aorta progressively dilates or acutely dissects, beginning in the coronary sinuses, sometimes before age 10 yr.[merckmanuals.com] […] of ascending aorta and sinuses of Valsalva Aortic dissection Mitral valve prolapse Annulus mitralis calcification in patients 40 yr Pulmonary artery dilation Descending or[physio-pedia.com]

  • Aortic Valve Insufficiency

    Abstract Idiopathic dilatation of the aortic root may commonly cause chronic insufficiency of the aortic valve.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] sinuses, and ascending aorta (AAo) was dilated.[cardiothoracicsurgery.biomedcentral.com] In these patients the cusp and sinuses are normal or virtually normal in area and pliability and the coronaries are not displaced.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rare Disease with Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm and Aortic Dissection

    […] ectasia and genetic connective tissue disorders Annulo-aortic ectasia is a combination of 1) ascending aortic aneurysm, 2) dilatation of the sinuses of Valsalva, and 3) dilatation[escardio.org] Screening echocardiograms in both twins showed severe dilation of the proximal thoracic aorta, involving both the aortic root at the level of the sinuses of Valsalva and the[pediatrics.aappublications.org] […] of the aortic annulus.[escardio.org]

  • Aortic Dilation

[10] As noted by others, [10] the results from this study demonstrate that dilation[annalspc.com] Whether the diameter threshold for surgery differs according to the level of maximum dilatation (aortic sinuses versus ascending aorta) requires further investigation.[onlinejacc.org]
