At a time when endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is increasingly used to treat abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs), lesions undergoing open surgical repair (OSR) may present significant differences compared to those treated before wide EVAR availability. We aim to record discrepancies in AAAs surgically treated before and after the introduction of EVAR.

Treatment of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (rAAAs) is still burdened by high morbidity and mortality. Although endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) offers encouraging results in elective setting, i...
Femorofemoral crossover bypass is a surgical arterial revascularization modality which is commonly performed for unilateral aortoiliac occlusive disease. It is primarily applied to patients with inter...
The aim was to assess the cost-effectiveness of fenestrated and branched stent grafts (f/b EVAR) compared with open surgical repair (OSR) in thoraco-abdominal or complex abdominal aortic aneurysms (TA...
Aortic abdominal aneurysms are a potentially deathly disease, needing surgical or endovascular treatment. To evaluate potentially new diagnostic tools and treatments a large animal model, which not on...
Chronic, post-dissection thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAAs) are increasingly being treated by (hybrid) endovascular means. Although it is less invasive, thoracic endovascular aortic repair is ...
This is a prospective, non-randomized, single center, data collection study of patients treated with open surgical repair (OR) for complex aortic aneurysms (CAAs).
In many countries the gold standard for treating abdominal aortic aneurysms is still open surgery with a long incision. In patients with suitable anatomy alternatively an endovascular appr...
INSIGHT is a postmarket clinical follow-up study in the European Union. The purpose of the study is to continue to evaluate the safety and effectiveness/performance of Incraft in subjects...
The objective of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of the Cordis Bilateral AAA device and its Delivery System compared to open surgical repair for the treatment of Abdom...
Conflicting results have been reported concerning the association of pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PXF) and abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). Schumacher et al. reported an association betwee...
Surgical treatment for severe AORTIC VALVE STENOSIS. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is used as an alternative option in patients who are deemed at high risk or inoperable for traditional open-heart surgery.
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.
Small masses of chromaffin cells found near the SYMPATHETIC GANGLIA along the ABDOMINAL AORTA, beginning cranial to the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) or renal arteries and extending to the level of the aortic bifurcation or just beyond. They are also called the organs of Zuckerkandl and sometimes called aortic bodies (not to be confused with AORTIC BODIES in the THORAX). The para-aortic bodies are the dominant source of CATECHOLAMINES in the FETUS and normally regress after BIRTH.
Surgical removal of excess abdominal skin and fat and tightening of the ABDOMINAL WALL. Abdominoplasty may include LIPECTOMY of INTRA-ABDOMINAL FAT, tightening of the ABDOMINAL MUSCLES, and re-creation of the UMBILICUS.
Methods to repair breaks in abdominal tissues caused by trauma or to close surgical incisions during abdominal surgery.
