What is a type B aortic dissection?
A type B aortic dissection involves a descending thoracic aorta. Often, this can be treated medically with blood pressure medicine. Complicated type B dissections, however, are ones that have ruptured or are at risk of rupture, or ones that have stopped blood flow to one or more vital organs. These dissections often require emergency intervention.
What is end-stage heart failure?
Brigham and Women's Hospital answeredEnd-stage heart failure is a disease in which the heart muscle is failing severely in its attempt to pump blood through the body, and in which all other available treatments are no longer helping to improve the heart's function. End-stage heart failure is the final stage of heart failure. Heart failure, also called congestive heart failure, or CHF, is a condition that occurs when the heart is unable to pump blood sufficiently. Despite its name, a diagnosis of heart failure does NOT mean the heart is about to stop beating. The term "failure" refers to the fact that the heart muscle is failing to pump blood in the normal manner because it has become weakened.
