BACKGROUND Prior work has clarified the cumulative, lifetime risk of rupture or dissection based on the size of thoracic aneurysms. Ability to estimate simply the yearly rate of rupture or dissection would greatly enhance clinical decision making for specific patients. Calculation of such a rate requires robust data. METHODS Data on 721 patients (446 male, 275 female; median age, 65.8 years; range, 8 to 95 years) with thoracic aortic disease was prospectively entered into a computerized… CONTINUE READING
