The aorta is a large blood vessel that carries blood away from the heart to the organs in the rest of the body. An aneurysm is a weakening in the artery wall that will become a bulge in the aorta. If left untreated, this bulge may continue to grow larger and may rupture (break open) with fatal consequences. In this research study we are investigating a device that can be placed in the aorta to exclude the weakened part of the artery wall and restore blood flow. Information will be collected on the performance of the device for 5 years.

To compare the aortic pulse profile before and after stent-graft implantation to prove that endovascular AAA repair using non-compliant stent-graft changes the aortic pulse profile.
Evaluate the safety and effectiveness of endovascular repair with the LeMaitre TAArget thoracic stent graft as an alternative to open surgical 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 aneur...
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 e...
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 ev...
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.
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 ...
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.
The tearing or bursting of the wall along any portion of the AORTA, such as thoracic or abdominal. It may result from the rupture of an aneurysm or it may be due to TRAUMA.
Cardiovascular manifestations of SYPHILIS, an infection of TREPONEMA PALLIDUM. In the late stage of syphilis, sometimes 20-30 years after the initial infection, damages are often seen in the blood vessels including the AORTA and the AORTIC VALVE. Clinical signs include syphilitic aortitis, aortic insufficiency, or aortic ANEURYSM.
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.
