Ascending to descending aorta bypass for middle aortic syndrome.

PMID:  17587729     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Though stenoses of the descending aorta and its branches are seen with congenital anomalies or systemic inflammation, occlusion of the descending aorta is extremely rare. A patient with an occluded hypoplastic descending thoracic aorta required re-operation because of graft failure between the descending thoracic aorta and the infrarenal abdominal aorta. The etiology of the aortic occlusion in this case is unknown, but inflammation, such as Takayasu disease, is speculated.
