aortic occlusion

Cardiology The partial or complete occlusion of the aorta along its path, an event which, given its hemodynamic consequences, is incompatible with long-term viability of the tissues 'south' of the occlusion

The most consistent haemodynamic response to acute aortic occlusion is an abrupt increase in afterload with a resultant increase in proximal aortic pressure.
Comparison of perioperative technical characteristics between the two groups: No difference was observed in the mode of valvular surgery, category of valve and length of hospital stay (P>0.05), but the duration of extracorporeal circulation and aortic occlusion of the observation group was significantly longer than that of the control group (P0.05).
Not only SCI due to the disequilibrium between [O.sub.2] demand and [O.sub.2] delivery as a result of aortic occlusion but also reperfusion damage is accused of neurological complications (NCs).
Acute aortic occlusion is a rare life-threatening condition with increased mortality ranging from 20 to 50%.
In such cases MCS is an important option as a bridge to surgery or intervention [6, 7], which was not feasible due to proximal aortic occlusion. The massive left-to-right shunt maybe does not solely explain aortic occlusion.
In the presence of an infrarenal aortic occlusion and TAAA, the endovascular option is usually excluded from the surgical options.
(II) Aortic Occlusion. The default procedure for aortic occlusion is the placement of an aortic cross-clamp.
reported a similar case of patient with CAD with Leriche syndrome, who was relatively stable allowing addressing the aortic occlusion as a first step followed by complex PCI of the RCA lesion.
Stenosis is the most common complication of the aorta and most commonly involves the descending thoracic aorta and abdominal aorta, although aortic occlusion or dilation may also occur.
We have found that there is a significant difference in the amount of intraoperative bleeding as the timing of abdominal aortic occlusion changes.
