Via the left femoral arterial sheath, an 8 Fr Amplatz guide catheter was placed into the proximal descending aorta and two Lunderquist (Cook Medical, Bloomington, Indiana) wires were sequentially placed into the aortic arch through this catheter.
After blood pressure was measured in the anesthetized rats, the thoracic aortas were quickly dissected, removed, cut into small pieces, transferred into liquid nitrogen, and stored at-80[degrees]C until analysis.
Here, we present an alternative technique of intraoperative transaortic insertion of the IABP through the ascending aorta using a separate saphenous vein graft anastomosed to the ascending aorta by an end-to-side manner tunneled to the skin above the manubrium sterni in a series of 7 consecutive patients with severe aortoiliac disease.
As a part of workup for hypertension, an echocardiogram revealed coarctation of abdominal aorta.
In this study we want to study T1 and T2 weighted MR images of thrombus from examination of patients with Small Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms in order to know whether the thrombus signal can be linked with the aortic diameter enlargement, and then could predict rupture risk of the aorta wall.
So he started to look into ways that his aorta could be supported in a similar way to any other pipe, which would prevent it from expanding and mean that he wouldn't need to have the operation.
An aldehyde component in Chinese medicine, Cinnamomi cortex, was reported to cause vasodilatation in the aorta isolated from spontaneously hypertensive rat (Kasahara et al., 2002).

A pulmonary vessel--which carries blood to the lungs--is conspicuous in its absence and may be a clue that the dinosaur had a second aorta, Ruben says.
He and his colleagues have also developed a simple saliva test that offers hope for identifying others who carry aneurysm-associated genetic defects, perhaps in time to prevent a catastrophic blowout of the aorta wall.
The abdominal aorta of the rabbit has been in the focus of research to develop new platforms of training diagnostic and therapeutic protocols (Li et al., 2016); and for testing endovascular devices and materials (Simgen et al., 2016; Zhu et al., 2015) due to its capability for mimicking human aortic aneurysm disease (Fan et al., 2015; Yoo et al., 2015).
