Aortic Aneurysm - Screening and Prevention

AAA  TAA  abdominal aortic aneurysm  thoracic aortic aneurysm 

If you have known risk factors for developing an aortic aneurysm, your doctor may recommend screening. To screen for an aortic aneurysm, your doctor may recommend an imaging study to look at and measure the aorta. An aneurysm can develop and grow without any symptoms until it ruptures or dissects—events that are both life-threatening. If the aneurysm is found early, treatment or surgery may slow its growth and prevent rupture or dissection.

Hepatitis viral

Hepatitis viral 

La hepatitis es la inflamación del hígado. En los Estados Unidos, la hepatitis viral suele estar provocada por el virus de la hepatitis A, B o C. Los distintos tipos de hepatitis se propagan de diferentes maneras, inclusive a través de las relaciones sexuales, compartir agujas o ingerir alimentos sucios. A veces, la hepatitis viral desaparece por sí sola. En otros casos, el virus es crónico y puede provocar problemas de salud graves. La vacunación puede prevenir las hepatitis A y B, pero no C. Existen medicamentos para tratar y a veces curar la hepatitis B y C.
