The Leriche Syndrome, is atherosclerotic occlusion of the aortic bifurcation, which occurs usually at the age of forty years. This disease can slowly progress for a long time, sometimes for more than ten years. Often patients do notice the onset of the disease, as his symptoms appears suddenly, is due to the development of full occlusion of blood vessels.
The Clinic, diagnosis, treatment of Leriche's syndrome will be discussed in this article.
It is well Known that the aorta is the largest blood artery. At the navel it is split, then through the pelvis, it goes in the limbs. But in that case, if for some reason (about which we will speak later) diameter of the aorta along with the two iliac arteries decreases, this can lead to oxygen starvation. The affected area become organs of the reproductive and urinary systems, and in addition, the upper parts of the legs.
This condition in medicine is called aortopodwzdoshnogo occlusion and the disease is called Leriche's syndrome. This pathology has many different synonyms, ranging from chronic obstruction of the aorta, ending with atherosclerotic thrombosis of the abdominal tissue. This disease is known in medicine for quite some time, but directly the name it acquired in honor of the surgeon rené Leriche, who carried out in the last century the world's first lumbar sympathectomy clogged aorta and resection.
This syndrome is considered an exclusively male pathology. Males encounter it ten times as likely in comparison with women. In this risk group among men is the age span of forty to sixty years. In this case it is important to keep in mind that chronic obstruction of the aorta is a set of clinical manifestations, and not an independent disease. In this regard, treatment of the syndrome in conjunction with the ignoring of the reasons that caused it, will provide an opportunity to achieve visible improvement of the condition, but can not stop the destructive processes in the aorta.
