Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection
so, i was doing a bit (well, actually i have been putting it off for quite a while so it turned out to be quite a lot) of filing and stumbled upon my first ever cat scan pictures 6 months post-op. unfortunately, i either gave my doctor or the consultant i went to see in the uk the CD with the pictures on, but i will take the paper copies to work tomorrow and scan them in (i can only do A4 at home and these are A3). what i find interesting to see are the mechanical valve, dacron conduit and the "restart" of the dissection and just how high up it actually is. i have 8 A3 pages of my complete torso so you can follow the dissection down to resection at the iliac branch and see just how scary it looks just below the heart...
watch this space ;)
