Tell Us Your Story:
A fter a suddenly big chest pain, I spent a weekend in the clinic. The diagnosis was an abdominal and thoracic aortic dissection.
In the ICU, I made a passive treatment during a week.
I have an aunt with an aortic aneurysm, this was the reason why I have genetic testing done, the result has been a mutation in the gene act-2.
Now I have a very normal life. Although I’m waiting for future medical revisions, I hope an stability in my aorta.
My desire is that my children have not inherited the mutation of this gene. I hope that researchers find a treatment to improve the gene.
