Endovascular Repair of Thoracic Aortoenteric Fistulas.
Summary of "Endovascular Repair of Thoracic Aortoenteric Fistulas."
AbstractÔÇé 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.

Endovascular approaches (thoracic endovascular aortic repair) have revolutionized treatment of thoracic aortic disease.
It is expected that the stent graft will become an alternative method for treating aortic diseases or reducing the extent of surgery; therefore, thoracic endovascular aortic repair has widened its ind...
To review the different outcomes of the endovascular repair of major abdominal arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs).
Although endovascular repair has been widely adopted for treatment of descending thoracic aortic pathologies, its role in ascending aortic pathologies remains undefined. We reviewed our experience wit...
Fenestrated and branch endografts represent a totally endovascular solution for high-risk patients with atherosclerotic thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAAs). This study reports the early outcome...

The purpose of this study is to assess the role of descending thoracic aortic aneurysm exclusion using a novel endovascular prosthesis in high risk surgical patients.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Relay thoracic stent-graft system to treat thoracic aortic aneurysms. Efficacy will be evaluated by the device-rela...
Even though the indication for endovascular therapy has been enlarged, open repair of common femoral artery is still considered as the treatment of choice. A recent pilot study showed that...
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.
