Summary of "Endovascular Repair of Thoracic Aortoenteric Fistulas."

Abstract  Aortoesophageal fistula is a rare manifestation of thoracic aortic surgery or esophageal disease. We describe a patient who underwent emergent endovascular repair of an aortoesophageal fistula due to a ruptured penetrating ulcer of the descending thoracic aorta and review the literature on this subject. (J Card Surg 2011; **:1-3).

Endovascular Repair versus Open Repair for Isolated Descending Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm.

To compare the outcomes of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) with those of open repair for descending thoracic aortic aneurysms (DTAA).

Radiofrequency In Situ Fenestration for Aortic Arch Vessels During Thoracic Endovascular Repair.

To report the first clinical application of a novel technique using radiofrequency puncture to create retrograde in situ fenestrations during thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR).

Stent graft types for endovascular repair of thoracic aortic aneurysms.

The UK prevalence of thoracic aneurysm is estimated at 10.4 per 100,000 person-years. Progressive and unpredictable enlargement can lead to rupture. Endovascular repair of thoracic aortic aneurysms in...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The reconstruction of a continuous two-stranded DNA molecule without mismatch from a molecule which contained damaged regions. The major repair mechanisms are excision repair, in which defective regions in one strand are excised and resynthesized using the complementary base pairing information in the intact strand; photoreactivation repair, in which the lethal and mutagenic effects of ultraviolet light are eliminated; and post-replication repair, in which the primary lesions are not repaired, but the gaps in one daughter duplex are filled in by incorporation of portions of the other (undamaged) daughter duplex. Excision repair and post-replication repair are sometimes referred to as "dark repair" because they do not require light.

Endovascular procedure in which atheromatous plaque is excised by a cutting or rotating catheter. It differs from balloon and laser angioplasty procedures which enlarge vessels by dilation but frequently do not remove much plaque. If the plaque is removed by surgical excision under general anesthesia rather than by an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.

Surgery performed on the thoracic organs, most commonly the lungs and the heart.

The outer margins of the thorax containing SKIN, deep FASCIA; THORACIC VERTEBRAE; RIBS; STERNUM; and MUSCLES.

A DNA repair enzyme that catalyzes DNA synthesis during base excision DNA repair. EC
