Adachi type C variation: Does this complicate aneurysm repair?

Posted by timeghost @timeghost, Mar 28 1:15pm

I was told that I have an Adachi type C Variation of my aorta. I knew I had an ascending aortic aneurysm prior. Would this complicate a repair of the aneursym should it become necessary? Thanks

Hi @timeghost, It seems there are several studies about people that have the type C variation that have had successful repairs. I included one below. It also included some very detailed pictures that you might find interesting.

When were you diagnosed with your ascending aortic aneurysm?
