ABDOMINAL AORTIC ANEURYSM (AAA) - Overview and Surgical Procedure Explained In Text, Picture & Video

Overview:

The aorta is the largest artery in the body, it carries oxygen-rich blood pumped out of, or away from, your heart. The aorta runs through the chest, where it is called the thoracic aorta. When it reaches the abdomen, it is called the abdominal aorta. The abdominal aorta supplies blood to the lower part of the body. In the abdomen, just below the navel, the aorta splits into two branches, called the iliac arteries, which carry blood into each leg.

When a weak area of the abdominal aorta expands or bulges, it is called an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). The pressure from blood flowing through the abdominal aorta can cause a weakened part of the aorta to bulge, much like a balloon. A normal aorta is about 1 inch in diameter. An AAA can stretch the aorta beyond its safety margin as it expands. Aneurysms are a health risk because they can burst or rupture. A ruptured aneurysm can cause severe internal bleeding, which can lead to shock or even death.

Less commonly, AAA can cause another serious health problem called embolization. Clots or debris can form inside the aneurysm and travel to blood vessels leading to other organs in the body. If one of these blood vessels becomes blocked, it can cause severe pain or even more serious problems, such as limb loss.

Each year, physicians diagnose approximately 200,000 people in the United States with AAA. Of those 200,000, nearly 15,000 may have AAA threatening enough to cause death from its rupture if not treated.

Surgical Procedure:

Open Repair: The conventional open surgical repair of aneurysms involves opening the abdominal cavity in the case of an abdominal aortic aneurysm, and sewing a synthetic graft inside the aneurysm to the artery above and below it to prevent the aneurysm from rupturing. In essence, relining the weakened aorta with a sleeve of material making the aorta stronger.

Endovascular Repair: A newer approach, called an endovascular repair, involves the use of a catheter that is inserted into the groin, in a similar fashion as an aortogram, however, the catheter is used to insert a self-expanding stent graft into the aneurysm. Endovascular repair of aneurysms does not require a large incision and has a substantially shorter recovery than the conventional open surgical approach. Not all aneurysms are suitable for endovascular repair.

A Basic Understanding of Lucha Libre:

  • Title matches will always fall secondary to a mask or hair match, in the eyes of the fans.

  • A count-out is twenty, not ten.

  • Generally speaking, all matches are two out of three falls.

  • In a tag team encounter, each member much be pinned before it counts as one fall.

  • After two decades of watching, I’m not positive if the above rule is only in a title, hair or mask encounter or all matches.

  • In a tag match, you do not have to tag. If you exit the ring in any fashion, a partner is allowed to enter the ring immediately to replace you.

  • Removing someones mask is an automatic disqualification.

  • Low blows seem to be the equivalent of being shot point blank in the crotch, also resulting in an automatic disqualification.

  • Generally speaking, men and women in intergender tag matches are not allowed to touch, though it happens behind the referees backs for heat quite often. This rule seems to be exempt when it’s Mini on Woman.

  • Técnicos are babyfaces.

  • Rudos are heels.

  • There are Técnico and Rudo referees.

I’m sure I missed a few things, but I think those are the general basics.
