Sample text

Usually this occurs along the right lateral wall of the ascending aorta, where hydraulic shear stresses are very high. The initiating event is most likely a medial hemorrhage, which disrupts the intima and allows luminal blood to dissect into the vessel wall. Another common site is the descending thoracic aorta directly below the ligamentum arteriosum. The pulsatile blood flow along the aorta leads to a tear in the elastic lamellar plates of the aorta and creates a false lumen. The dissection usually propagates down the descending aorta and into its major branches, but it may also propagate upward into the cervical vessels.

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (Cor Pulmonale)70,71 A general increase in pulmonary blood flow (active pulmonary hyperemia, not to be confused with pulmonary congestion) due to intracardiac or extracardiac shunting of blood leads to volume overload, causing dilatation of all the pulmonary arteries and veins. Over time, this increased pulmonary blood flow ­induces endothelial hyperplasia at the arteriolar level with intimal fibrosis in the small vessels. 7). 8; see Other Forms of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, Chapter 12, p.

The location of the effusion is position dependent: it may overlie the diaphragm or may appear as a crescent-shaped accumulation along the lateral chest wall in the upright patient. Pleural effusions may also be subpulmonary without separation of the lateral pleural layers. This type of effusion, especially when small, is not detectable in the P-A chest radiograph. A subpulmonary effusion is best documented by positioning the patient on the affected side. Pleural effusions are more common on the right than the left side, as a larger pleural surface area is available for fluid transudation on the right side.
