IS ASCENDING AORTA DILATATION THE SAME AS AORTIC ANEURYSM? WHAT THE 'AORTIC INSUFFICIENCY ETIOLOGY OF CARDIAC VALVE DISEASE, UNSPECIFIED MEAN? THANK YOU.
Dilatation of the ascending aorta is also related to aging, it happens with the seniors.
Not exactly the same, dilatation of ascending aorta means the aorta diameter greater than 4 cm, there're mainly four possible causes, aortic aneurysm is one of them. AORTIC INSUFFICIENCY ETIOLOGY OF CARDIAC VALVE DISEASE means the valve isn't working properly that leads to aortic insufficiency. If you have both "ascending aorta dilatation" and "AORTIC INSUFFICIENCY ETIOLOGY OF CARDIAC VALVE DISEASE " on your report, that means you have heart valve disease, it leads to ascending aorta dilatation.
Don't understand what it means when the test came back saying the abdominal aorta is nonaneurysmal. I would think that meant nothing is wrong,but the internet says there is .what does it mean can anyone answer my question please.
You got it right, aneurysmal is a bad guy, "abdominal aorta is nonaneurysmal" is good, "abdominal aorta is aneurysmal" is bad, it means a person has the aneurysmal and needs treatment.
