Follow-up After Endovascular Repair of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

2014-08-27 03:37:54 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Description

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.

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)
