Aortic dissection[edit]

Care needs to be taken not to duplicate. Dissection I take to mean the splitting of layer of a blood vessel, vs aneurysm to be a stretched dilatation. An aneurysm may go on to dissect or rupture. Aortic dissection is a really comprehensive article and needs care in how we move any information over to Aortic Aneurism.. David Ruben 20:16, 15 August 2005 (UTC)

This article seems to focus primarily on AAAs rather than aneurysms in general........ me —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:14, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Strange opening sentence[edit]

While the stretched vessel may occasionally cause discomfort, it is the risk of rupture causing severe pain, massive internal hemorrhage and, without prompt treatment, resulting in a quick death.

It is ... resulting in a quick death. This string of words doesn't make much sense to me. I'm not sure how it ought to be rewritten though. -- Sy / (talk) 22:11, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

I agree

Surgical Treatment[edit]

Operative details for aortic aneurysm graft[edit]

I am an editor of This is a free surgical wiki that focusses on operative detail, to a depth unlike any other wiki or indeed any operative surgical text book.

Wikisurgery also contains unique online training programs in basic surgical skills and basic laparoscopic skills, plus information for surgical patients.

I think that wikipedia users would find this information a new extension of their knowledge base.

Can you suggest a way of the wikipedian administration evaluating wikisurgery with a view to forming some sort of linkage?

Great! We can add a link under the 'external links' section. Whats the link to the specific page for details on AAA repair technique? BakerStMD T|C 17:44, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Separate page on Aortic aneurysm rupture[edit]

I've thought for some time that there should be a separate page for Aortic aneurysm rupture, rather than a link to AAA, because neither the page for AAA nor this one adequately address the topic. Other people agree? BakerStMD T|C 17:46, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
