It took a week or two before the scan was done. The scan showed an abdominal aortic dissection. The surgeon called my mother and told her to get me to the emergency room immediately. I was scanned again but this time chest and abdomen.
This scan revealed a large cm ascending aortic aneursym. I had surgery the next day to repair the aneursym and replace my aortic valve which was severly damaged.

My descending aorta is dissected to the pelvis. This causes a lot of pain. I have just completed genetic testing and I am positive for a variant of the Marfan gene. No one else in our family has had an aortic dissection or aneurysm that we know of. Even though I have ongoing problems I feel very blessed to be alive. My aneurysm was found just in time. I am on medication for my heart rate, blood pressure and pain.
I have had to put off completing college but hope to be back in school in January of Thanks for stopping by to view our stories. Please help me keep the site going by shopping at Amazon. Brian Tinsley founder of AorticDissection. On July 30, I stumbled across this article today while searching Google for Aortic Dissection news.
And, nobody probably would have!!! That is even the more scary thing. This person appears to have been a Marfan candidate and therefore was already behind the eight ball when it comes to playing sports. So, this strenuous basketball playing over the years was weakening his aorta every time his heart rate was racing from his exercise. The preliminary autopsy found that the curved, ascending portion of Mr. That created a cardiac tapinade, which suppressed or prevented the organ from pumping properly. James Patrick, Lucas County coroner, said Mr.
Charalambous had recently been seen by Dr. But the coroner declined to comment on what the visit was for, citing doctor-patient and medical privacy laws. At an afternoon news conference in Savage Hall, Dr. Kruse also said that because of the federal Health Insurance Privacy and Portability Act he could not discuss his visits with Mr. Charalambous and other athletes for any potential health problems. Kruse said.
Kruse later told The Blade that he spoke to Mr. Charalambous collapsed about 11 a. Aortic dissection occurs in about two of every 10, people, according to MedlinePlus, a service of the U. There are two types of aortic dissection: Type A, which begins in the ascending part of the aorta and requires surgery to repair; and Type B, which begins in the last or descending part of the aorta and moves down the abdomen, but may be treated with anti-hypertensives to lower blood pressure or heart medications such as beta-blockers.
Hardening of the arteries atherosclerosis and high blood pressure are among the risks that can cause an aortic dissection. Patrick, who reviewed the autopsy findings, and Dr. Kruse said further testing is needed to know the exact cause of Mr.
That testing will take several weeks, they said. Patrick said. One possible cause of aortic dissection in younger patients is Marfan syndrome, a weakening of arteries and other connective tissues that is often found in tall, lanky individuals with long arms, legs, and fingers. Blair Grubb, professor of medicine and pediatrics at University Medical Center and director of the clinical cardiac electrophysiology program. Kruse said tests will be run to determine whether Marfan syndrome was involved in Mr.
Aortic dissection is more than twice as likely to occur in men than women, and happens most often between the ages of 40 and 70, MedlinePlus reports. In younger athletes such as Mr. Charalambous, aortic dissection usually happens due to genetic structural deficiencies. Grubb said. In about half of all cases of sudden athlete death, the athlete experiences no symptoms of the condition until the fatal one, Dr.
If caught early, a weakened aorta can sometimes be corrected with open-heart surgery, or risks can be reduced through a drug regimen of beta blockers, which reduce the force of heart contractions. Less than half of all patients who suffer aorta ruptures survive, MedlinePlus reports. Symptoms usually begin suddenly or over a short period of time and can include chest pain with changing location, dizziness, disorientation, intense anxiety, profuse sweating clammy skin , dry skin and mouth, thirst, nausea and vomiting, and shortness of breath even when lying flat.

The Cook County medical malpractice alleged that the decedent, Michael Hamilton, would still be alive if not for the preventable emergency room errors committed at St. James Hospital. Hamilton presented to the emergency room at St. James Hospital in Chicago Heights complaining of abdominal pain. Hamilton had been at work in a local paint factory when he began feeling dizzy, sweaty, nauseous, and having severe chest pains. Co-workers reported that he was pounding his chest with his fist and laying down in extreme pain.
They called an ambulance and he was rushed to the emergency room. However, by the time that Hamilton presented to the emergency room his severe pains had diminished substantially. Jose Almeida, M. Less than a week later, the 35 year-old was found dead at his home. A medical examiner determined that Hamilton had died of an aortic dissection, which occurs when the bleeding occurs into the aorta. Because the aorta is the major artery carrying blood out of the heart, when there is bleeding in this area it affects the blood flow throughout the whole body.
An aortic dissection is considered a medical emergency. At the time of his death, Hamilton lived with his mother, Evelyn Hart, who brought the Chicago wrongful death lawsuit against St. The Illinois lawsuit alleged that Dr.

Almeida taken those steps that Hamilton could have been saved. Almeida and his experts retorted that he had satisfied the standard of care and not done anything wrong. The defense responded by pointing out how rare aortic dissections are, especially in someone in their 30s. The defense maintained the emergency room doctor had acted appropriately in response to someone who presented with abdominal pain that then resolved while he was in the emergency room.
However, the standard practice for physicians is to rule out the most serious cause of abdominal pain first, gradually moving from most life-threatening problems to more common causes.

I told him I was on my way, But in no way was I prepared for what was about to happen. I knew my mother has had some minor breathing problems before, but nothing major. The Medic unit arrived and paramedic Jason Anderson phoned me and told me mother was to weak to come to the door. I arrived shortly after with a key. Mother has high blood pressure so we knew something wrong. With fluids going we head to the local ER. A helicopter was dispatched to fly mother to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga about a 20 min.
