Follow-up After Endovascular Repair of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

2014-08-26 22:37:54 | BioPortfolio


To collect and analyze clinical follow-up data which can be used to assess the safety, efficacy, and durability of endovascular AAA repair with Zenith and Chuter-Gianturco stent-grafts.


We propose to analyze the data collected for clinical purposes in 453 patients who already underwent endovascular AAA repair at UCSF and SFVA, and others who will undergo this operation in the future. Most of these patients have now passed the 2-year follow-up required by the original protocol, all continue to be followed for clinical purposes, using the same studies, the same data forms and the same schedule as before, because studies of various devices of this type have shown that the potential for late problems requires continuing scrutiny of stent-graft structure and function, as a basis for timely re-intervention.

Posttraumatic infrarenal abdominal aortic pseudoaneurysm treated with bifurcated endovascular graft stent.

Posttraumatic infrarenal aortic pseudoaneurysms are rare and potentially lethal lesions. We report the case of a 32-year-old man presenting with infrarenal aortic pseudoaneurysm eight months after bei...

Stent graft types for endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms.

The UK prevalence of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is estimated at 4.9% in over 65-year olds. Progressive and unpredictable enlargement can lead to rupture. Endovascular repair of AAAs involves a st...

Endovascular aortic aneurysm repair in patients with narrow aortas using bifurcated stent grafts is safe and effective.

Narrowing of the distal aortic bifurcation can result in stent graft compression or arterial disruption during endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). The aim of our study was to evaluate results ...

We report on a 57-year-old female liver transplanted patient who underwent endovascular aneurysm repair because of an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm. Two months later she developed an infection ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

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.

Solitary lesions of bone that typically cause a bulging of the overlying cortex bearing some resemblance to the saccular protrusion of the aortic wall in aortic aneurysm, hence the name. (Dorland, 27th ed)
