A study of patients with aortic aortic aneurysm (AAA) has found that around 50-80% of these AAA episodes occurred during pregnancy or her first pregnancy. This study, published in the journal Arthrex, reveals that AAA occurs at a relatively higher age that is only detectable in late term pregnancies, meaning that this high grade is also more common in neonatal intensive care patients.

AAA occurs in aortic aorta and human aorta both, resulting in aneurysm growths and perforations, with management focus on prevention, growth and rehabilitation, pain management and reduction of blood pressure. Despite successful treatment, aortic aortic aneurysms present in 16% of all patients and 6% of the U.S. population.

“Under optimal management, aortic aortic aneurysms present in all patients at diagnosis with a de-stressed left aorta,” explained Juan Alejandro-Santiago, Head of the INSEAD Center for Biomedical Natural Sciences in Madrid, Spain Research Director of the INSEAD Transcatheter Microscopic Tissue Engineering Unit at Teshima Hospital Tokyo, Japan, and senior author of the study. “In the presence of de-stressed aortic aortic aneurysms, evaluating modeling, stenting or minimally invasive surgery is necessary to objectively determine the density and anatomic location of the aneurysm and evaluate general postnatal fitness and adverse response. Using images of AAA aneurysms obtained prior to its de-sturing, it is possible to develop a reliable understanding of the estimated age of a treated AAA aneurysm, as well as molecular and cell transport characteristics that could guide further research into a common aneurysm.”
