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.

To compare the aortic pulse profile before and after stent-graft implantation to prove that endovascular AAA repair using non-compliant stent-graft changes the aortic pulse profile.
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...
Aorto femoral bypass is usually the recommended therapy for diffuse disease involving the aorta and iliac arteries. In this case report, a case involving a chronic endovascular abdominal aortic stent ...
Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is a minimally invasive method for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms; however, the implementation of this technique is often limited by the aortic patholo...
Traumatic aortic injury, a consequence of penetrating injuries or blunt trauma, is a life threatening condition which requires prompt diagnosis and management. Most abdominal aortic injuries have been...
Splenic artery aneurysm, one of the most common visceral aneurysms, accounts for 60% of all visceral aneurysm cases. Open surgery is the traditional treatment for splenic artery aneurysm but has the d...
Superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and coeliac axis (CA) occlusion after endovascular abdominal aneurysm aortic repair (EVAR-AAA), using endograft with suprarenal fixation, are uncommon. However, we are...
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)
A stent is a small mesh tube that's used to treat narrow or weak arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from your heart to other parts of your body. A stent is placed in an artery as part of a procedure called angioplasty. &...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
