Genetics of Thoracic and Abdominal Aortic Diseases.

Circ Res 2019 Feb;124(4):588-606

From the Division of Medical Genetics, Department of Internal Medicine, McGovern Medical School; University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (A.P., D.M.M.).

Dissections or ruptures of aortic aneurysms remain a leading cause of death in the developed world, with the majority of deaths being preventable if individuals at risk are identified and properly managed. Genetic variants predispose individuals to these aortic diseases. In the case of thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissections (thoracic aortic disease), genetic data can be used to identify some at-risk individuals and dictate management of the associated vascular disease.

Cellular Mechanisms of Aortic Aneurysm Formation.

Circ Res 2019 Feb;124(4):607-618

From the Division of Cardiology, Department of Medicine (R.A.Q., W.R.T.), Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA.

Aortic aneurysms are a common vascular disease in Western populations that can involve virtually any portion of the aorta. Abdominal aortic aneurysms are much more common than thoracic aortic aneurysms and combined they account for >25 000 deaths in the United States annually. Although thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms share some common characteristics, including the gross anatomic appearance, alterations in extracellular matrix, and loss of smooth muscle cells, they are distinct diseases.

Abdominal Aortic Rupture Secondary To Lymphoma Recurrence.

Ann Vasc Surg 2019 Feb 4. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Angiology and Vascular Surgery Service, University and Polytechnic La Fe Hospital, Valencia Spain.

Neoplasias affecting the aorta are usually due to a variety of thoracic and abdominal tumours, which are more common than primary tumours of the aortic wall. Those tumors that can invade the abdominal aorta are usually sarcomas, which are able to mimic, both clinically and radiologically, an aortic disease such as an aneurysm or a dissection. There are few clinical scenarios where surgical resection and aortic repair needs to be performed, and indications have not still been clearly established in the literature. Read More

Thoracic stent-graft migration, the role of the geometric modifications of the stent-graft at 3 years.

Ann Vasc Surg 2019 Jan 23. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

PET/CT center, OHS Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha, Qatar.

Background: To date, clinical and experimental studies of stent-graft migration have focused on aortic morphology and blood flow. However, thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) is not an instant fixation of the stent-graft in the aortic lumen, but rather a continuous process of deformation and three-dimensional change in the configuration and the geometry of the stent-graft. The aim of this study was to analyse the geometric evolution of the aortic stent-graft in the proximal attachment zone at mid-term follow-up and its impact on the stent-graft (SG) migration.

Involvement of estrogen receptor and GPER in bisphenol A induced proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells.

Toxicol In Vitro 2019 Apr 21;56:156-162. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Shangqiu the First People's Hospital, Shangqiu, Henan Province 476000, China.

Aortic aneurysm (AA) is a common disease that is associated with the proliferation and apoptosis of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). VSMC cells can be directly exposed to environmental endocrine disruptors (EEDs) such as bisphenol A (BPA). However, the effects of BPA on the biological functions of VSMC are not well studied.

HDAC9 complex inhibition improves smooth muscle-dependent stenotic vascular disease.

JCI Insight 2019 01 24;4(2). Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Cardiovascular Research Center, Cardiology Division, Department of Medicine.

Patients with heterozygous missense mutations in the ACTA2 or MYH11 gene are known to exhibit thoracic aortic aneurysm and a risk of early-onset aortic dissection. However, less common phenotypes involving arterial obstruction are also observed, including coronary and cerebrovascular stenotic disease. Herein we implicate the HDAC9 complex in transcriptional silencing of contractile protein-associated genes, known to undergo downregulation in stenotic lesions. Read More

Identifying Local Arterial Stiffness to Assess the Risk of Rupture of Ascending Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms.

Ann Biomed Eng 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Mines Saint-Étienne, Univ Lyon, Univ Jean Monnet, INSERM, U 1059 Sainbiose, Centre CIS, 42023, Saint-Étienne, France.

It was recently submitted that the rupture risk of an ascending thoracic aortic aneurysm (ATAA) is strongly correlated with the aortic stiffness. To validate this assumption, we propose a non-invasive inverse method to identify the patient-specific local extensional stiffness of aortic walls based on gated CT scans. Using these images, the local strain distribution is reconstructed throughout the cardiac cycle. Read More

Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair of Esophageal Cancer-Associated Aortoesophageal Fistula: A Case Report and Literature Review.

Case Rep Oncol Med 2018 19;2018:9851397. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Gastroenterology Medicine Center, Shonan Kamakura General Hospital, 1370-1 Okamoto, Kamakura City, Kanagawa 247-8533, Japan.

Background: Thoracic endovascular aortic repair of an aortoesophageal fistula is an effective emergency treatment for patients with T4-esophageal cancer, as it prevents sudden death, and is a bridge to surgery. However, the course of unresectable malignant aortoesophageal fistula treated with thoracic endovascular aortic repair alone is not well-known.

Case Presentation: We report a 67-year-old Japanese man with T4-esophageal cancer who experienced a chemoradiation-induced aortoesophageal fistula and was rescued with thoracic endovascular aortic repair. Read More

pathogenic variants: risk for thoracic aortic disease and associated complications from the Montalcino Aortic Consortium.

J Med Genet 2019 Jan 19. Epub 2019 Jan 19.

Department of Internal Medicine, McGovern Medical School, University of Texas Health Science Center, Houston, Texas, USA.

Background: Pathogenic variants in cause thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections, along with aneurysms and rupture of other arteries. Here, we examined differences in clinical presentation of aortic events (dissection or surgical repair of an aneurysm) with respect to age and variant type in an international cohort of individuals with variants.

Methods: Aortic status and events, vital status and clinical features were abstracted through retrospective review of medical records of 212 individuals with 51 unique variants, including haploinsufficiency (HI) and missense substitutions in the MH2 domain, as well as novel in-frame deletions and missense variants in the MH1 domain.

A genetic risk score for hypertension is associated with risk of thoracic aortic aneurysm.

J Hum Hypertens 2019 Jan 18. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

Department of Medicine, University of Verona, Section of General Medicine and Hypertension, Verona, Italy.

A genetic risk score (GRS) based on 29 single nucleotide polymorpysms (SNPs) associated with high blood pressure (BP) was prospectively associated with development of hypertension, stroke and cardiovascular events. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the impact of this GRS on the incidence of aortic disease, including aortic dissection (AD), rupture or surgery of a thoracic (TAA) or abdominal (AAA) aortic aneurysm. More than 25,000 people from the Swedish Malmo Diet and Cancer Study had information on at least 24 SNPs and were followed up for a median ≥ 18 years. Read More
