Abdominal aortic aneurysm

Mohab Ibrahim, Linda S. Aglio

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A process in which a clamp is applied to the aorta by the surgeon for the surgical repair of aneurysms. The clamp site is proximal to the lesion of interest. The clamp prevents exsanguination and allows for dry conditions that are needed for surgical repair of the aorta. This maneuver usually constitutes the majority of hemodynamics seen with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair.
