Summary of "Endovascular repair of an inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm causing bilateral ureteric obstruction."


BACKGROUND:
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.
METHODS:
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.
CONCLUSION:
IAAAs and the associated peri-aortic inflammation and fibrosis can be successfully treated using endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair with concurrent ureteric stenting.

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.
