Thoracic Aorta

  Please tell me what the following statement indicates:
  " Thoracic aorta is again noted to be moderately uncoiled."
Dear Barbara
It is difficult for me to interpret a test without being told what the test is and what the clinical context is. The statement most likely refers to the fact that your thoracic aorta ( the blood vessel that leads out of your heart to deliver blood to the rest of your body) as visualized on some sort of x-ray or CAT scan has an unusual bend in it. If you are concerned, you should ask your doctor about the significance of this in your particular case.
I hope this has been useful. Feel free to write back with further questions. Good luck.
