French term or phrase: STA
I have searched high & low but I work out what STA stands for here: STA is just after "coeur droit" in the last paragraph below. Any help appreciated, thank you.

Cas n°2 et n°3 : Hémolyse drépanocytaire
1er cas : Patiente âgée de 30 ans, suivie pour drépanocytose homozygote et bénéficiant d’un programme
transfusionnel pour grossesse G2P1 à 32 SA.
Un échange transfusionnel a été initié avec 2 CGR phénotypés et compatibilisés. 7 jours après sont apparus
une fièvre, des douleurs osseuses, des urines foncées. Les paramètres biochimiques étaient les suivants : Hb
à 6,1 g/dL, HbA à 11,6 % (16,4 % en post-transfusion immédiate), LDH augmentée (3908 UI/l).
Le lendemain, la baisse de l’hémoglobine (à 4 g/dL) et la mise en évidence d’une souffrance foetale ont justifié
l’indication d’une césarienne.
Une détresse respiratoire multifactorielle est apparue (coeur droit, STA, deux embolies pulmonaires
segmentaires) associée à un arrêt cardiaque qui a été récupéré. La patiente a été intubée et transfusée avec 6
CGR et 4 Plasmas.
