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

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)

Cerebrospinal fluid drainage[edit] subheading "open surgery" paragraph of this page.

I was here to update the 2004 Cochrane review used in this paragraph to the 2014 version. Conclusion from the Cochrane review states: "There are limited data supporting the role of CSFD in thoracic and thoracoabdominal aneurysm surgery for prevention of neurological injury. Further clinical and experimental studies are indicated." The wikipedia paragraph presently reads: "The aorta and its branching arteries are cross-clamped during open surgery. This can lead to inadequate blood supply to the spinal cord, resulting in paraplegia, when repairing thoracic aneurysms. Cerebrospinal fluid drainage, when performed in experienced centers, reduces the risk of ischemic spinal cord injury by increasing the perfusion pressure to the spinal cord.[15][16][needs update]"

Ref 16 is the Cochrane review I am updating. The conclusions are the same. Does anyone know what common surgical practice is for this?

For now, I propose the following edit: A 2004 systematic review and meta analysis found that cerebrospinal fluid drainage (CFSD), when performed in experienced centers, reduces the risk of ischemic spinal cord injury by increasing the perfusion pressure to the spinal cord.[15] A 2012 Cochrane systematic review noted that further research regarding the effectiveness of CFSD for preventing a spinal cord injury is required.

If you have any feedback on this, it would be appreciated. Thanks, JenOttawa (talk) 19:01, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

[1]your proposed text seems well thought out and would benefit the article...IMO--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 20:36, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
