AORTIC ANEURYSM

What is an aortic aneurysm?


Varicose veins are veins which are enlarged, dilated, and overfilled with blood. Varicose veins appear swollen and raised, and have a bluish-purple or red color. They are often painful. The condition is very common, especially in women. In most cases, varicose veins appear on the lower legs.

What are the causes of aortic aneurysm?


Varicose veins result from abnormal inner walls or abnormal valves in blood vessels. Veins have valves that act as one-way flaps which prevents blood from backflow and pooling. When these one-way valves don't work properly there is backflow and blood gets collected in veins causing them to enlarge. This is known as venous reflux or venous insufficiency.

What are the symptoms of aortic aneurysm?


Below are few of the factors which cause Varicose Veins:

  • Increasing age
  • Family history
  • Pregnancy and hormonal changes
  • Obesity
  • Prolonged standing
  • Prior deep venous thrombosis

What is the treatment of aortic aneurysm?


Several options are available for treatment of varicose veins. A few of them are listed below:

Radio frequency ablation (RFA)

Radio Frequency Ablation involves the passage of RFA probe inside a vein. This technique uses radiofrequency energy (instead of laser energy) to heat up and damage the wall inside a vein. This usually closes off a varicose vein in the leg.

RFA is a minimally invasive procedure with minimal risk of scarring & post operative infection. It is generally performed under local anesthesia.

It is a simple day care procedure which takes less than an hour and you will be discharged the same day. You may resume your regular activities and routine immediately.


Endo venous laser ablation (EVLA)

Laser surgery closes and shrinks the varicose vein and causes scar tissue within the vessel. This seals off the vein. Blood then flows through other nearby veins instead.


Sclerotherapy

In this process, a sclerosing solution is injected into the varicosed vein that stops the flow of blood, and the vein turns into scar tissue. Subsequently, the vein fades away and the disease subsides completely.


Compression Stockings

Compression stockings are elastic socks to be worn in affected leg. It reduces the pooling of blood and pumps blood from veins causing an increase in blood flow velocity and valve effectiveness. Compression therapy decrease venous pressure and relieves heavy and aching legs. Now a days graduated compression stockings are used which are tightest at the ankle and gradually loosen upwards. They are to be worn during day time only.

Varicose vein open surgery

This is an invasive surgery that involves removing the varicose veins. The procedure involves ligation & stripping of vein.


More FAQ for Varicose Veins

What are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are defined as “subcutaneous veins in the lower extremities which are dilated to ≥3 mm in diameter in the upright position”.
They can occur in the axial superficial veins (GSV and SSV) and/or in any of their tributaries.
Current thinking is that they represent primary venous disease and occur as a result of structural weakening of the vein wall, which can be focal in nature or diffuse. This weakening is most likely the result of underlying morphologic or biochemical abnormalities, although the exact nature of these abnormalities is not understood.

Valvular incompetence in the superficial veins is usually present, but it is not clear if this represents an inciting factor or a secondary result of vein wall dilation.

Varicose veins can also occur as a result of secondary venous disease—for example, as a sequela of DVT.

Varicose veins constitute a progressive disease; remission does not occur except after pregnancy and delivery.

During its course the disease produces symptoms and complications that usually prompt the patient to seek medical care.

Symptoms and signs include
lower extremity pain and swelling, particularly after prolonged standing,
feeling of heaviness in the lower extremities.

The most frequent complications are
superficial thrombophlebitis,
acute bleeding originating in one of the thin-walled varices,

eczema,

skin ulceration.

Though affecting only a small fraction of the population with venous insufficiency, venous ulcers are reported to occur in up to 4% of people older than 65 year. Even though nonoperative management of venous disease—including compression, elevation, and skin care—is clearly beneficial, such therapy does not correct the underlying pathology, allows recurrence of symptoms if patients are unable to comply with the elevation and compression regimen, and is associated with a high incidence of recurrent ulceration and progression of disease.

What is an aortic aneurysm?


Aortic aneurysm is an abnormal bulge that occurs in the wall of aorta that carries blood from heart to body. Aortic aneurysms can occur anywhere in the aorta. Abdominal aortic aneurysms often grow slowly and usually without symptoms, making them difficult to detect. Some aneurysms will never rupture. Many start small and stay small, although many expand over time. Others expand quickly.

What are the causes of aortic aneurysm?


Although the exact cause of aortic aneurysms is unknown, a number of factors may play a role, including:
  • Tobacco use- Cigarette smoking and other forms of tobacco use increase the risk of aortic aneurysms. Smoking causes fatty plaque formation in the arteries (atherosclerosis) and high blood pressure. Smoking can also cause aneurysm to grow faster by further damaging the aorta.
  • Hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis)- Atherosclerosis occurs when fat and other substances build up on the lining of a blood vessel, increasing your risk of an aneurysm.
  • Infection in the aorta (vasculitis)- In rare cases, aortic aneurysm may be caused by an infection or inflammation that weakens a section of the aortic wall.

What are the symptoms of aortic aneurysm?


Some of the symptoms of aortic aneurysm are:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Croaky or raspy voice
  • Backache
  • Pain in left shoulder or between shoulder blades
  • Sudden and severe pain
  • Sudden stomach pain, lower back pain, or flu-like symptoms
  • Pain or tenderness below stomach
  • Fever
  • Weight loss

What are the risk factors of aortic aneurysm?


Some of the risk factors of aortic aneurysm are:

  • Atherosclerosis
  • High blood pressure
  • Smoking
  • Pregnancy
  • Sex- Men have about double the incidence of aortic dissection.
  • Age- The incidence of aortic dissection peaks in the 60s and 80s
  • Deep wounds, injuries, or infections of the blood vessels
  • Genetic factor
  • Narrowing of the aorta at birth (aortic coarctation)


Certain genetic diseases increase the risk of aortic dissection-
  • Turner's syndrome
  • Marfan syndrome
  • Other connective tissue disorders
  • Inflammatory or infectious conditions

What is the treatment of aortic aneurysm?


Treatment may vary from watchful waiting to emergency surgery depending on the size and rate at which aortic aneurysm is growing. Ruptured aortic aneurysms are life threatning thus a close monitoring is essential so that timely surgery can be planned.

There are two types of surgery for aortic aneurysms.

  • Open surgery - It involves removing the damaged section of the aorta and replacing it with a synthetic tube (graft), which is sewn into place, through an open-abdominal approach. With this type of surgery, it will likely take you a month or more to fully recover.
  • Endovascular surgery is a less invasive procedure sometimes used to repair an aneurysm. Doctors attach a synthetic graft to the end of a thin tube (catheter) that's inserted through an artery in your leg and threaded up into your aorta. The graft is placed at the site of the aneurysm and fastened in place with small hooks or pins. The graft reinforces the weakened section of the aorta to prevent rupture of the aneurysm.

Recovery time for people who have endovascular surgery is shorter than for people who have openabdominal surgery. However, follow-up appointments are more frequent because endovascular grafts can leak. Follow-up ultrasounds are generally done every six months for the first year, and then once a year after that. Long-term survival rates are similar for both endovascular surgery and open surgery.
