Medicana Sivas Hospital Cardiology Specialist Uz. Dr. İsmail Erdogu said that if aortic rupture is not diagnosed and treated quickly, it can become fatal.
Upset. Dr. İsmail Erdogu shared information about aortic aneurysm. Stating that vesicles and enlargements that form on the aorta without any symptoms can be life-threatening like a bomb ready to explode, Erdogu said, “Although it is rare, aortic rupture (dissection) can become fatal if it is not diagnosed and treated quickly. The only solution is to take the patient to surgery immediately.” said.
Pointing out that the blood entering the torn vein in the disease progresses with each heartbeat and separates the layers of the vascular wall from each other, Erdogu said, “Thus, a real channel and a false one, through which the blood flows, are formed. The flow in the veins coming out of the main artery is also disrupted. In this case, patients can die before reaching the hospital.” he said.
Stating that this disease progresses insidiously, Erdogu said, “Bleeding caused by the swelling and bursting of the aorta in the abdomen for different reasons threatens life to a great extent and usually progresses insidiously. There are thousands of undiagnosed patients with aortic aneurysms, which are encountered in many people due to their lifestyle and diet. “he used the phrases.
Erdogu said the following about the detection stages of the disease:
“Intra-abdominal aortic aneurysm can cause abdominal, low back and back pain. It can be detected by methods such as ultrasonography, conventional or CT angiography. In addition, most of the time, this disease is detected during the examination for any reason. Aortic aneurysms that are not diagnosed in time can rupture due to coughing, constipation, and sudden blood pressure rise. At this stage, the risk of death of the patient before reaching the emergency room is quite high. After the necessary examinations and tests, an evaluation is made and intervention is made according to the region where the aneurysm is located. The risk is high in open surgery of aortic aneurysm. For this reason, Endovascular Aorta (EVAR) operation, which has very low anesthesia risk and provides recovery in a short time, is preferred instead of open.
Stating that aortic aneurysms may occur due to the deterioration of the vascular wall due to lifestyle, nutrition and genetic factors, Erdogu said, “Especially people over 50 years of age with hypertension, high cholesterol, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), smokers, traumas, regular check-ups are present. stated that it should be done.
Erdogu listed what needs to be done to prevent aortic aneurysm as follows:
Staying away from cigarettes, reducing the use of salt, paying attention to nutrition, eating a healthy and balanced diet, regular check-ups of those in the risk group.
