Read Transcript

So, let's go over the symptoms because they must have miscarried. First, is high blood pressure, swollen legs and chest tightness and pain right. Three very classic signs. and the diagniosis you went sent home with was that you were suffering from I mean a lot of us have which is hypertension, especially, after pregnancy we sell a lot.

That is all pathetic scenerio. What is real diagnosed? Type B a little [xx] section, protection which is [xx] [xx]. Sometimes from around the delivery, the tissues of the aorta get a little thin perhaps under high pressure than the following. Let's forget the heart, the heart's speeding and there's that big tube coming out of the top here.

Right up the top here, the head vessels going to your head of course, a little lip started. And that limps start to extend all the way down the [xx] and shield the way, and guess what happen then the blood level start to go down that blood channel started to compress the true channel.

The [xx] began to close down ultimately you're stuck with that. So, right now you have a that exact configuration in you body so if I can just turn you a little bit this way, and just move you come back towards a little bit. So, the aortic that's coming off the back is actually in the back, and that's all of us, and because of that, that little [xx] that area is out back here which of course, gives us a little bit pulse.

Many even wonder how come we don't just fix this dissections. Sometimes they're in such delicate places this is one is.

That is very hard for us to fix it without either paralyzing the patient, or risking their life to undue degree. So, we will usually follow it, but the whole bit to much, but because it's a thin wall it often does. It's one of the places we spend a lot of attention.
