Stent graft-induced distal re-dissection (SIDR) is a burdensome complication after thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for Type B aortic dissection. We developed a novel method to prevent SIDR by placing a small-diameter short stent graft [Excluder Aortic Extender (Cuff)] at the distal landing zone (DLZ) and reviewed its effectiveness in this study.

Name: Interactive cardiovascular and thoracic surgery
The aim of this study was to investigate the accuracy of stent graft deployment in the distal landing zone (LZ) during thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). Currently, TEVAR focuses on accurate...
The best surgical strategy for acute Stanford Type A aortic dissection (aTAAD) involving the arch remains controversial. Here, we report on the satisfactory results following aTAAD repair using a nove...
The precise sizing of the stent graft in thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) affects aortic remodeling and hence, further outcome. Covering the proximal entry tear is essential for successful ...
To report the midterm safety and efficacy of the Aegis™-B (Microport, Shanghai, China) unibody bifurcated stent-graft for endovascular treatment of isolated abdominal aortic dissection (IAAD).
Drug eluting stents (DES) have been increasingly being used for treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD) and have been shown to be very effective in prevention of primary in-stent restenosis (ISR). ...
The purpose of this study is to compare triple-branched stent placement with total-arch replacement in the treatment of acute DeBakey I aortic dissection . The investigators design optimal...
This clinical trial is a prospective, multicenter, non-blinded, non-randomized study designed to assess the RelayPro thoracic endografts in the treatment of acute, complicated type B aorti...
The objective of this study is to compare treatment with an endograft prothesis versus antihypertensive treatment in patients with a dissection of the thoracic aorta.
The purpose of this early feasibility study is to investigate the outcome of selected patients with ascending thoracic aortic pathologies including type A aortic dissection, who are suitab...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the Valiant stent graft is safe and effective in treating patients who have a thoracic dissection. A thoracic dissection is a tear in the wall ...
The induction of prolonged survival and growth of allografts of either tumors or normal tissues which would ordinarily be rejected. It may be induced passively by introducing graft-specific antibodies from previously immunized donors, which bind to the graft's surface antigens, masking them from recognition by T-cells; or actively by prior immunization of the recipient with graft antigens which evoke specific antibodies and form antigen-antibody complexes which bind to the antigen receptor sites of the T-cells and block their cytotoxic activity.
Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.
The immune responses of a host to a graft. A specific response is GRAFT REJECTION.
An immunological attack mounted by a graft against the host because of tissue incompatibility when immunologically competent cells are transplanted to an immunologically incompetent host; the resulting clinical picture is that of GRAFT VS HOST DISEASE.
The survival of a graft in a host, the factors responsible for the survival and the changes occurring within the graft during growth in the host.
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. &...
Acute Coronary Syndromes ACS
Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) is an umbrella term for situations where the blood supplied to the heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Treatment for acute coronary syndrome includes medicines and a procedure known as angioplasty, during which doctors inflat...
