Endovascular repair of an inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm causing bilateral ureteric obstruction.
Summary of "Endovascular repair of an inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm causing bilateral ureteric obstruction."
Conventional open repair of inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysms (IAAA) remains challenging through the presence of extensive peri-aortic inflammation and fibrosis which makes dissection and vascular control difficult with a risk of inadvertent injury to adjacent visceral structures such as the ureters, duodenum, inferior vena cava, left renal vein and sigmoid colon.
We describe a case of a 69-year-old gentleman who presented with acute renal failure due to bilateral ureteric obstruction in association with an IAAA and discuss the various management options available.
IAAAs and the associated peri-aortic inflammation and fibrosis can be successfully treated using endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair with concurrent ureteric stenting.

Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) for degenerative abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) requires complete aortic exclusion to prevent ongoing aneurysmal degeneration in a diseased aorta....
To assess whether a strategy of endovascular repair (if aortic morphology is suitable, open repair if not) versus open repair reduces early mortality for patients with suspected ruptured abdominal aor...
We present a case of an elderly man with the persisting type II endoleak following endovascular aneurysm repair. In a view of the multiple comorbidities, the patient was denied an open elective repair...
Type II endoleak is usually a benign finding after endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). In some patients, however, type II endoleak leads to aneurysm sac expansion and the need for fu...
Obesity is increasingly common in patients referred for the management of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Evidence of the effect of obesity on outcomes after endovascular repair (EVAR) is not well...
The purpose of this trial is to assess whether the new endovascular repair technique of the abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is an adequate substitute of the conventional AAA repair.
The purpose of this study is to compare the cost effectiveness, quality of life and outcomes of the endovascular stent graft repair with the open surgical repair of abdominal aortic aneury...
The purpose of this study is to assess the role of abdominal aneurysm and iliac aneurysm exclusion using an endovascular prosthesis.
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a life threatening disease. There is a consensus to propose surgical repair in patients with a reasonable operative risk when the AAA exceeds 5 cm in dia...
After endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, life-long follow-up is needed to monitor the effectiveness of exclusion of the aneurysm sac from blood flow. For this reason, aneurysm...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of the ABDOMINAL AORTA which gives rise to the visceral, the parietal, and the terminal (iliac) branches below the aortic hiatus at the diaphragm.
Postoperative hemorrhage from an endovascular AORTIC ANEURYSM repaired with endoluminal placement of stent grafts (BLOOD VESSEL PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION). It is associated with pressurization, expansion, and eventual rupture of the aneurysm.
A slowly progressive condition of unknown etiology, characterized by deposition of fibrous tissue in the retroperitoneal space compressing the ureters, great vessels, bile duct, and other structures. When associated with abdominal aortic aneurysm, it may be called chronic periaortitis or inflammatory perianeurysmal fibrosis.
The tearing or bursting of the wall along any portion of the AORTA, such as thoracic or abdominal. It may result from the rupture of an aneurysm or it may be due to TRAUMA.
Cardiovascular manifestations of SYPHILIS, an infection of TREPONEMA PALLIDUM. In the late stage of syphilis, sometimes 20-30 years after the initial infection, damages are often seen in the blood vessels including the AORTA and the AORTIC VALVE. Clinical signs include syphilitic aortitis, aortic insufficiency, or aortic ANEURYSM.
