The frozen elephant trunk technique facilitates repair of aortic arch and proximal descending aortic pathologies. Commercially available hybrid grafts may simplify this approach by allowing for a single suture line, potentially streamlining the distal anastomosis and improving operative times. However, these devices are currently not readily available in United States. We developed a surgical technique, the Buffalo Trunk, to simplify the frozen elephant trunk procedure that obviates the need for a hybrid graft and decreases operating times.

Patients with complex aortic arch aneurysms and severe arterial tortuosity represent a unique challenge because of extreme angulations, mixed aneurysm and stenotic disease, and fragile tissues. Novel ...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of the frozen elephant trunk (FET) technique, using the J Graft FROZENIX for Stanford type A acute aortic dissection, in comparison with the unfrozen...
Acute Type A aortic dissection (AAAD) is a surgical emergency. In patients with arch and descending aorta involvement (DeBakey Type I), a total aortic arch replacement with frozen elephant trunk (F...
The use of the frozen elephant trunk technique for type A aortic dissection in Marfan syndrome is limited by the lack of imaging evidence for long-term aortic remodeling. We seek to evaluate the chang...
In situ fenestration of aortic stent grafts for treatment of aortic arch aneurysms is a new option for endovascular aortic arch repair. So far, only few reports have shown perioperative and short term...
Abnormalities of the aorta have been identified in patients who have undergone repair of coarctation of the aorta by various surgical techniques. These abnormalities are thought to contri...
To evaluate two different supra-aortic trunks debranching techniques during open repair of aortic arch aneurysms by means of Frozen Elephant Trunk procedure with two configurations of the ...
Even though the lower part of the body does receive some blood supply during Cardiopulmonary Bypass(CPB) surgery, it may not be enough. As a result of this lowered blood supply, there are...
Reconstruction of the aortic valve using the tri-leaflet repair technique is non-inferior with regard to effective orifice area (EOA) to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) with a bio...
Open Repair Versus Branched Endograft Repair for Treatment of Residual Chronic Aortic Arch Dissection During Follow-up After Open Type A Acute Ascending Aorta Replacement: Results From an International Multicenter Study.
This study aims to evaluate peri-operative mortality and main post-operative complications (for example cardiovascular, respiratory and renal) in patients treated with frozen elephant trun...
Congenital vascular malformation in which the AORTA arch and its branches encircle the TRACHEA and ESOPHAGUS. Signs and symptoms include DYSPNEA; RESPIRATORY SOUNDS, especially with eating, DYSPHAGIA, persistent cough, and GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX or may be asymptomatic. Two most common types are double aortic arch and right aortic arch. It may be associated with other anomalies (e.g., DIGEORGE SYNDROME).
The first and largest artery branching from the aortic arch. It distributes blood to the right side of the head and neck and to the right arm.
Small clusters of chemoreceptive and supporting cells located near the ARCH OF THE AORTA; the PULMONARY ARTERIES; and the coronary arteries. The aortic bodies sense PH; CARBON DIOXIDE; and oxygen concentrations in the BLOOD and participate in the control of RESPIRATION. The aortic bodies should not be confused with the PARA-AORTIC BODIES in the abdomen (which are sometimes also called aortic bodies).
A birth defect characterized by the narrowing of the AORTA that can be of varying degree and at any point from the transverse arch to the iliac bifurcation. Aortic coarctation causes arterial HYPERTENSION before the point of narrowing and arterial HYPOTENSION beyond the narrowed portion.
A cardiovascular procedure performed to create a blood supply to the PULMONARY CIRCULATION. It involves making a connection between the subclavian, or carotid branch of the AORTA, or the AORTIC ARCH to the PULMONARY ARTERY.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
