In some cases, the aorta can become diseased. Aortic diseases include aortic aneurysms and aortic dissection, a result of aortic aneurysms. These conditions usually warrant some kind of surgery to correct.
The aorta, the body's largest artery, extends upward from the top of the left ventricle of the heart (ascending thoracic aorta), then curves like a candy cane (aortic arch) downward (descending thoracic aorta) into the abdomen (abdominal aorta). The aorta delivers oxygenated blood to the rest of the body. The heart pumps blood out of the left ventricle, through the aortic valve, and into the aorta.
Biological dressings are created using tissue derived from living organisms. We use these dressings to help close chronic wounds and thereby to reduce pain and prevent the loss of fluid, heat, protein and electrolytes. The end goal is to help a wound heal on its own or to prepare it for surgical permanent closure. There are many dressing types available—your plastic surgeon will decide which type of dressing is right for your unique case.
