Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a common disease seen in vascular units. AAA is defined as transverse diameter greater than 3 cm and affects men more than women. Endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) is increasingly being used to treat AAA. Renal dysfunction, graft-related endoleaks, graft limb occlusion, device migration and delayed aneurysm rupture are possible complications that have been encountered after EVAR.
Late aneurysm formation in the proximal aorta or distal aortic arch is a recognized sequela of untreated stenosis of the aortic isthmus and is associated with substantial risk of aortic rupture. We describe the case of a 44-year-old man with untreated coarctation of the aorta who presented with a prestenotic dissecting thoracic aortic aneurysm. He declined surgery because he was a Jehovah's Witness. Instead, we performed emergency endovascular aortic repair in which 2 stent-grafts were placed in the descend...
The treatment of thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm continues to have a high mortality and paraplegia rate. In superaging societies, the methods of performing less invasive operations remain a major issue. We reviewed our 10-year experience in the treatment of thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm using a hybrid procedure of combined visceral reconstruction and thoracic endovascular aortic repair.
Hybrid procedures are used to treat aneurysms of the transverse aortic arch (TAA), combining debranching of the brachiocephalic vessels with endovascular approaches. Continued enlargement of the aneurysmal sac is a late complication. A 60-year-old man presented with an expanding transverse aortic arch aneurysm after prior hybrid repair and underwent left posterolateral thoracotomy, partial excision of the previous stent graft and replacement with an interposition graft.
The 2-stage elephant trunk procedure is widely used to treat extensive disease of the aortic arch and descending thoracic aorta. The 2nd stage of the procedure can be accomplished with both a standard surgical procedure and a retrograde transfemoral endovascular approach using the dangling graft as proximal landing zone. However, in some patients, severe disease of iliofemoral vessels can prevent standard retrograde thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). In such cases, an alternative route to gain end...
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.
Thoracic endovascular aortic repair is the treatment of choice in complicated acute type B aortic dissection. How to infer predissection aortic diameter is not well understood. Our aim was to delineate changes in descending aortic geometry due to dissection.
An aggressive periaortic lymphoma could very rarely invade the aortic wall. We present a unique case of a patient with symptomatic thoracic aneurysm and imminent rupture due to the periaortic lymphoma, in which endovascular treatment using stent graft was applied. After stabilization of the aorta and histological confirmation of aggressive B-cell lymphoma by computed tomography-guided biopsy, the antilymphoma therapy was initiated. Despite the full treatment, the patient died 12 months later.
Surgical site infections (SSIs) constitute one of many major complications after aortic aneurysm surgery and its details and outcome have not been evaluated extensively. This research evaluates the incidence and outcome of SSI and graft infection in open and endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery.
Conventional techniques of surgical correction of arch and descending aortic diseases remains as high-risk procedures. Endovascular treatments of abdominal and descending thoracic aorta have lower surgical risk. Evolution of both techniques - open debranching of the arch and endovascular approach of the descending aorta - may extend a less invasive endovascular treatment for a more extensive disease with necessity of proximal landing zone in the arch.
Spinal cord complications including paraplegia and partial neurologic deficits remain a frequent problem during repair of descending thoracic or thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms. Effective prevention of this dreaded complication is of paramount importance. Among the many adjuncts that have been proposed to prevent spinal cord complications, spinal fluid drainage is one that has been used by numerous teams. The aim of this review is to answer the following question: does spinal fluid drainage afford spinal ...
We present a case of a type Ia endoleak detected using F-FDG PET/CT 10 years after an abdominal aortoiliac endovascular aneurysm repair in an 83-year-old man. The F-FDG PET/CT scan was performed to evaluate a solitary pulmonary nodule but, in addition, demonstrated unexpected blood pool activity outside the stent graft and within the abdominal aortic aneurysm sac, indicating an endoleak; no FDG activity should be present within the aneurysm sac after stent graft placement. A subsequent CT angiogram confirme...
Surgical repair of extensive thoracic aortic disease induced by repeated aortic dissection is challenging due to its invasive nature in some cases. We report a rare case of successful endovascular repair of a dissected 3-channelled thoracic aortic aneurysm using the PETTICOAT (provisional extension to induce complete attachment) technique and false-lumen embolization (the candy-plug technique). The PETTICOAT technique improved visceral flow, and the false lumen of the aneurysm was completely thrombosed by t...
Blunt thoracic aortic injury (BTAI) is the second most common cause of death in trauma patients. Nowadays, thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) has become the treatment of choice due to lower rates of mortality, paraplegia and stroke. However, concerns have been raised whether graft implantation is related to the development of hypertension in the postoperative period.
Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) is used for treatment of thoracic aortic pathologies, but the covered stent graft can induce spinal ischaemia depending on the length used. The left subclavian artery contributes to spinal cord collateralization and is frequently occluded by the stent graft. Our objective was to investigate the impact of covered stent graft length on the risk of spinal ischaemia in the setting of left subclavian artery sacrifice.
: Aneurysms of the descending thoracic and thoracoabdominal aorta are life-threatening conditions. All aneurysms which have not yet had an indication for the treatment need regular follow-up to prevent rupture or dissection. We present a case of a patient with a giant aneurysm of the thoracoabdominal aorta who was denied both surgery and endovascular treatment.
To evaluate the safety and feasibility of a novel stent-graft for thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) in a canine model, 9 adult hybrid dogs were used for the experiment.
Intraoperative Type A aortic dissection during cardiothoracic surgery is extremely rare, but the consequences can be fatal. We report 2 case summaries of retrograde intraoperative Type A aortic dissection from descending thoracic aortic injury during ascending aortic cannulation and provide a discussion on management.
Complications of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) include endoleaks, proximal neck dilatation and stent migration, which have a greater likelihood with larger neck angulations. To mitigate against these complications endostapling of the stent-graft to the aortic wall is being implemented. With this extra stage in EVARs, this study aims to establish whether use of endostapling increases patient radiation exposure.
Transient paraplegia of the lower limbs is a rare condition and when has a vascular etiology is usually associated with thromboembolic events, aortic dissection, aortic aneurysms, or as a complication of the surgical correction of those deseases. There is no case reported of acute paraplegia caused by a segmental thrombotic subocclusion of the descending thoracic aorta.
To assess the novel morphological features for DeBakey IIIb aortic dissection in predicting distal thoracic aortic enlargement after thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR).
Transfemoral aortic valve implantation has become an almost routine interventional procedure for severe aortic stenosis in high-risk patients. Over time an increased number of experiences has led to unusual procedures. In this report, we present a successful valve-in-valve transfemoral aortic valve implantation in a patient with aortic regurgitation, who previously had debranching and thoracic endovascular aortic repair operations.
DeBakey Type I aortic dissections are frequently treated by an ascending aortic tube graft or hemiarch replacement with the residual dissection remaining untreated. We investigated the outcomes of branched thoracic endovascular repair for post-dissection aneurysms of the aortic arch.
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 stent graft deployment in the proximal LZ. Data on landing in the distal LZ are lacking.
To investigate the expression of matrix metalloproteinase-7 (MMP-7) in abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) with hypertension, and the clinical efficacy of endovascular exclusion.
