A truly non-occlusive stent-graft moulding balloon for thoracic endovascular aortic repair†.

Summary of "A truly non-occlusive stent-graft moulding balloon for thoracic endovascular aortic repair†."

Endovascular treatment of thoracic aortic pathologies has recently progressed towards more proximal pathologies, including those of the aortic arch and ascending aorta where there is a higher risk for stent-graft migration during the deployment or the moulding procedure due to the beating and ejecting heart. Typical measures to prevent dislodgement of the balloon or the stent-graft during the procedure are rapid pacing or pharmacologically induced hypotension. We present a circular and fully non-occlusive stent-graft moulding balloon that does not require any reduction of cardiac output or hypotension during inflation, moulding and deflation of the balloon.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.

Endovascular procedure in which atheromatous plaque is excised by a cutting or rotating catheter. It differs from balloon and laser angioplasty procedures which enlarge vessels by dilation but frequently do not remove much plaque. If the plaque is removed by surgical excision under general anesthesia rather than by an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.

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 THORACIC AORTA. This proximal descending portion of aorta gives rise to the visceral and the parietal branches above the aortic hiatus at the diaphragm.

Vascular filters or occlusive devices that provide mechanical protection of the distal end organ from blood clots or EMBOLISM-causing debri dislodged during ENDOVASCULAR PROCEDURES.
