We present here a case of successful staged treatment of a patient with para-aortic abscess that arose 5 years after thoracic endovascular aortic repair because of thoracic aortic aneurysm. After stabilization of the patient's condition by intensive antibiotic therapy we performed left-subclavian extra-thoracic debranching as the first stage of the surgical treatment. In 2 weeks via median sternotomy and on-pump we removed the infected endograft and performed extraanatomical ascending-to-descending aortic b...
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.
Sarcopenia may be an indicator of frailty. We used total psoas area index (TPAI) to identify sarcopenia and evaluated the effect of preoperative TPAI on outcomes following descending thoracic aortic aneurysm (DTAA) repair.
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...
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.
Treatment of thoracic aortic rupture poses a substantial challenge for the aortic surgeon. The advent of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) revolutionized the treatment of this heterogeneous group of diseases. However, some patients suitable for TEVAR present severe peripheral vascular diseases which can prevent standard retrograde delivery of the stent-graft through the femoral artery. In this article, we present a case series of five patients with thoracic aortic rupture successfully treated with...
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.
TEVAR is a well-stablished treatment of descending thoracic aneurysms and increasingly complex endovascular procedures are being performed including aortic arch and ascending aorta. However, follow-up complications may be expected, which will enhance the need of alternative approaches such as transapical, in case of complex anatomies and reinterventions. We report the case of a man with prior history of ischemic cardiopathy and multiple endovascular aortic interventions with proximal landing in zone 1 and d...
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...
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.
Aortic stent-graft infection is rare, but remains one of the most challenging and threatening complications. This systematic review aimed to identify the clinical features, treatment and outcomes of endograft infection after abdominal endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) and thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR).
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.
To compare the treatment outcomes and cost of endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) and open surgical repair (OSR) in patients with an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) at a single center.
Described herein is a clinical case report regarding successful endovascular treatment of a patient presenting with an abdominal aortic aneurysm combined with occlusion of one of the iliac arteries. Cases concerning elimination of such pathology appear to be reported only sporadically in the available literature. The patient underwent reconstructive repair in two stages. The first stage comprised recanalization with stenting of the occluded iliac artery on the right and implantation of the Zenith stent graf...
The surge of endovascular repair of aortic aneurysm in current modern aortic surgery practice has been the key for surgical management of elective cases of thoracic aortic aneurysms. This has paved way for the combined hybrid approach to be amongst the armamentarium for the management of aortic arch disease. The pivotal understanding of the aortic arch natural history coupled with device technology advancement allowed surgeons insight into delivery of hybrid surgery with acceptable morbidity and mortality r...
The aim of the study was to compare short and long-term mortality and readmissions in patients with non-ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) treated with endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) or open aneurysm repair (OAR).
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.
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.
Thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) is usually clinically silent and progresses slowly until a tipping point is reached, after which the aortic diameter can expand more rapidly and the condition can potentially end in aortic dissection or rupture. Causes include bicuspid aortic valve and genetic syndromes (Marfan, Loeys-Dietz, and Ehlers-Danlos syndromes) and familial associations, but many cases are idiopathic. Clinicians should therefore be alert for clues on chest imaging, and consider screening in first-degr...
Clinical Utility of Intraoperative Motor-Evoked Potential Monitoring to Prevent Postoperative Spinal Cord Injury in Thoracic and Thoracoabdominal Aneurysm Repair: An Audit of the Japanese Association of Spinal Cord Protection in Aortic Surgery Database.
Spinal cord ischemic injury is the most devastating sequela of descending and thoracoabdominal aortic surgery. Motor-evoked potentials (MEPs) have been used to intraoperatively assess motor tract function, but it remains unclear whether MEP monitoring can decrease the incidence of postoperative motor deficits. Therefore, we reviewed multicenter medical records of patients who had undergone descending and thoracoabdominal aortic repair (both open surgery and endovascular repair) to assess the association of ...
Blunt thoracic aortic injury can be treated with thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) with excellent short and mid-term outcomes. However, few data are available about the long-term results. Our goal was to report our single-centre, 20-year experience using TEVAR to treat blunt thoracic aortic injury.
