A prospective, actively controlled, consecutively enrolling, non-randomized multi center clinical evaluation of the safety and efficacy of the Boston Scientific ENOVUS AAA Endograft when used in the treatment of patients with AAA (Treatment Group) as compared to patients treated with conventional open surgery (Control Group).
The primary objectives of this study are to determine whether the Boston Scientific ENOVUS AAA Endograft is a safe and effective method of treating AAA’s in those patients considered to be suitable candidates for open surgical repair. The safety of the Boston Scientific ENOVUS AAA Endograft will be determined by comparing the rate of major morbidity in the Treatment Group against the rate of major morbidity in the Control Group within 30 days of the initial procedure. The efficacy of the Boston Scientific ENOVUS AAA Endograft will be determined by evaluating the proportion of patients in the Treatment Group that are free from AAA rupture and conversion to open surgical repair within 1 year of the initial procedure.
The secondary safety endpoints will be compared between the Treatment and Control Groups:Mortality rates at 30 days and 1 year, AAA related mortality at 30 days and 1 year. The secondary efficacy endpoints will be evaluated in the Treatment Group only and include: Technical success, enlargement of AAA, migration, significant endoleak, and loss of device integrity. Secondary Clinical Utility endpoints will be compared between the Treatment and Control groups and will include: blood loss, duration of procedure, ICU stay, length of hospital stay, and duration of anesthesia.

A prospective, multi-centre, objective performance criteria clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Stent Graft System manufactured by Lifetech Scie...
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a life threatening disease. There is a consensus to propose surgical repair in patients with a reasonable operative risk when the AAA exceeds 5 cm in dia...
The BIOMArCS-AAA study aims to investigate the associations of (temporal patterns of) blood biomarkers with aneurysm growth in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), with particula...
It has been estimated that 80% of deaths from abdominal aortic aneurysms results from rupture. Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR) has been applied to RAAA (Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneur...
The purpose of this study is to assess the role of abdominal aneurysm and iliac aneurysm exclusion using an endovascular prosthesis.
The presence of a concomitant aortoiliac occlusive disease and abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is rare and limits the implant of a bifurcated endograft.
A 71-year old patient with previous thoracic aneurysm endovascular repair (TEVAR) and endovascular abdominal aneurysm repair (EVAR) presented with simultaneous type-III endoleak from the thoracic comp...
The aim of the study was to show the relationship between the concentration of lysosomal peptidases: cathepsin A, D and E in the wall of the abdominal aortic aneurysm and the concentration of copper a...
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.
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) remains one of the hallmark pathologies in vascular surgery and an area of intense research interest. Treatment options have expanded in recent years to increase the ra...
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.
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.
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.
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.
Solitary lesions of bone that typically cause a bulging of the overlying cortex bearing some resemblance to the saccular protrusion of the aortic wall in aortic aneurysm, hence the name. (Dorland, 27th ed)
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...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
