Analysis that detects the aneurysm, regardless of which part of the aorta is located
Aortic aneurysms are extremely serious complications of blood vessels, complications that can even lead to loss of life.
Surgeon Dr. Calin Popa, invited to the Doctor's Day plateau, pointed out that aneurysm can occur in any artery in the body, but that the most common is aneurysm occurring in the adrenal aorta.
Aneurysm is an abnormal dilation, on a smaller or greater distance, of an artery. The artery may also be smaller or larger.
In the cerebral arteries, cerebral aneurysm occurs, which occurs suddenly and can lead to rapid death.
Angio CT is the analysis that can detect the aneurysm! The patient is given a contrast substance on a peripheral vein, and the computer will analyze the color tones, which will indicate the diagnosis.
This is the analysis that diagnoses the aneurysm. The primary physician of cardiovascular surgery Călin Popa presented during the LiveDoc program the methods of identifying the aneurysm, a very serious heart disease.
The CT scan can provide a lot of valuable information about the patient and his illness, but of course training will be needed first. The doctors prescribing this analysis take care to investigate the patient first.
The examination itself does not pose problems, it is a routine one.
What are the causes of aortic aneurysm?
- Genetic diseases
- Deposits on the walls of blood vessels
The arteries suffer over time, so it is necessary for the man to know his health and to come to the vascular problems adopting a healthy lifestyle, paying attention to the cholesterol values.
