Chronic to Degenerative Sign for an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm



At the time of open heart surgery (CABGX4), client was diagnosed with a 4.5 cm abdominal aortic aneurysm; the sign for which, in this iris, is a chronic to degenerative lesion which occurs at ~4:30 o'clock, .25-.45 R. Also of note is a chronic sign in the area of the spleen (~4:15 o'clock, .25-.35 R) and a chronic to degenerative lesion (~7:30 o'clock, .25-.45 R) which suggests a possible herniation to the lumbar-sacral disk. (Client was experiencing severe pain down his left leg.)

Also of interest is that the client had taken a statin drug for 24 years.Thus, the insurance company ended up paying a significant amount of money for both the statin prescription as well as the open-heart surgery.

Applying the "Web (Solid)" option of the Microsoft Image Composer to the original image (this image could not be uploaded) demonstrates that the lesions in the iris are both color and depth lesions: the lesions in the abdominal aorta and the lumbar spine are sharpened and deepened; whereas the chronic lesion in the spleen is 'washed out' as being mostly a color rather than a depth lesion.

The yellow density--xanthelasmus--lateral to the edge of the iris is suggestive of hyperlipidemia, which is probably the reason the client was prescribed a statin drug in the first place; despite the lack, however, of the classic iris sign for hardening of the arteries (as seen below)

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
