PURPOSE: To report the use of the Nellix endovascular aneurysm sealing (EVAS) system in the management of proximal stent-graft collapse associated with thrombosis following endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). CASE REPORT: A 76-year-old man was admitted for proximal collapse of an aortic extension following bifurcated AFX stent-graft implantation associated with chimney grafts in both renal arteries and the superior mesenteric artery 1 month prior. Imaging identified thrombosis of the aortic stent-graft and the iliac limbs...

PURPOSE: To identify preoperative anatomical aortic characteristics that predict seal failures after endovascular aneurysm sealing (EVAS) and compare the incidence of events experienced by patients treated within vs outside the instructions for use (IFU). METHODS: Of 355 patients treated with the Nellix EndoVascular Aneurysm Sealing System (generation 3SQ+) at 3 high-volume centers from March 2013 to December 2015, 94 patients were excluded, leaving 261 patients (mean age 76±8 years; 229 men) for regression analysis...

PURPOSE: To investigate how 2-dimensional geometric parameters differ between ruptured and asymptomatic abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) and provide a biomechanical explanation for the findings. METHODS: The computed tomography angiography (CTA) scans of 30 patients (mean age 77±10 years; 23 men) with ruptured AAAs and 60 patients (mean age 76±8 years; 46 men) with asymptomatic AAAs were used to measure maximum sac diameter along the center lumen line, the cross-sectional lumen area, the total vessel area, the intraluminal thrombus (ILT) area, and corresponding volumes...

PURPOSE: To report Multilayer Flow Modulator (MFM) implantation from the sinotubular junction to the distal infrarenal aorta in the treatment of type B aortic dissection (TBAD) and demonstrate aortic remodeling using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis over the course of 3-year follow-up. CASE REPORT: A hypertensive patient with complicated TBAD required thoracic endovascular aortic repair due to severe thoracic pain associated with rapid progression of the false lumen aneurysm toward the distal aortic arch...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the incidence of elastic recoil in patients presenting with erectile dysfunction (ED) undergoing endovascular revascularization of the pudendal or penile arteries. METHODS: A consecutive series of 21 ED patients (mean age 58.3±9.3 years) undergoing minimally invasive revascularization of 31 arteries was analyzed. ED lesions included the pudendal arteries (n=27) and the penile artery (n=4). Mean lesion length was 20.6±13.9 mm. Minimal lumen diameter (MLD) measurements were assessed at baseline, immediately after balloon angioplasty, and 10 minutes thereafter...

PURPOSE: To compare outcomes of outpatient tibial artery procedures between an office endovascular center and a hospital angiography suite. METHODS: A retrospective review was conducted of 204 outpatient tibial interventions performed on 161 patients (mean age 72±11.5 years; 81 men) in either an office (n=100) or hospital (n=104) angiography suite from April 2011 through September 2013. Patients who had an existing ipsilateral bypass that was completely proximal to the tibial trifurcation were eligible, as were patients with prior proximal endovascular interventions...

PURPOSE: To report an experimental study and clinical case using a coil packing technique that hastens occlusion of an Amplatzer Vascular Plug 1 (AVP1) in short-segment embolization of high-flow target vessels. TECHNIQUE: An experimental vascular stenosis model was made of 12-mm soft polyvinyl chloride tubing. Under continuous pulsatile flow, a 12-mm AVP1 was deployed in the 4-mm-diameter stenosis. Before detachment of the AVP1, a 2.2-F microcatheter was inserted into the AVP1 through its mesh via a 6-F delivery guiding sheath in parallel with the delivery wire...

PURPOSE: To investigate the short-term outcomes and complications of straight vs tapered carotid stent placement for patients with symptomatic carotid stenosis. METHODS: A prospective study was conducted to examine if tapered carotid stents (TCS) performed better than straight carotid stents (SCS) in terms of complications and outcomes in patients with a unilateral, symptomatic, internal carotid artery stenosis ⩾70%. Between January 2014 and January 2016, 236 patients were screened; 88 were excluded, leaving 148 patients for 1:1 randomization to carotid artery stenting with either SCS or TCS...

PURPOSE: To analyze the results of isolated left subclavian artery (LSA) revascularization during thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) using carotid-subclavian bypass (CSbp) or chimney grafts (CGs). METHODS: A retrospective multicenter, observational study identified 73 patients (mean age 68±13 years, range 22-87; 56 men) with acute or chronic thoracic aortic lesions who underwent TEVAR with isolated LSA revascularization using either CSbp (n=42) or CGs (n=31) from January 2010 and February 2017...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the safety and performance of the Treovance stent-graft. METHODS: The global, multicenter RATIONALE registry (; identifier NCT03449875) prospectively enrolled 202 patients (mean age 73.0±7.8 years; 187 men) with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) suitable for endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) using the Treovance. The composite primary safety endpoint was site-reported all-cause mortality and major morbidity. The primary efficacy outcome was clinical success...

PURPOSE: To report a post hoc analysis comparing outcomes between subjects who would have been included in the IN.PACT SFA randomized controlled trial vs those who would have been excluded. METHODS: The 1406 subjects enrolled in the IN.PACT Global Study ( identifier NCT01609296) were retrospectively assigned to a standard-use group (n=281) based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria from the randomized IN.PACT SFA trial; the remaining 1125 patients were assigned to the broader-use group...

PURPOSE: To investigate the midterm performance of the everolimus-eluting Absorb bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) for the treatment of symptomatic infrapopliteal atherosclerotic disease. METHODS: A single-center study prospectively enrolled 48 symptomatic patients (mean age 82.1±8.0 years; 27 men) between September 2013 and February 2018 to evaluate the Absorb everolimus-eluting BVS system in distal popliteal and tibial lesions. Mean lesion length was 20.1±10...

PURPOSE: To investigate if balloon angioplasty with a prolonged inflation time (>3 minutes) can prevent postdilation dissection in femoropopliteal lesions. METHODS: A retrospective single-center analysis examined 294 consecutive patients (mean age 74.1±8.7 years; 215 men) with de novo femoropopliteal lesions treated with balloon angioplasty between 2013 and 2018. The patients were classified into 2 groups to compare angiographic dissection patterns: 175 patients treated with balloon angioplasty for 3 minutes (3-minute group) and 119 treated for >3 minutes (>3-minute group)...
