OBJECTIVE: There is no international consensus regarding the optimum management of infected aortae (mycotic aneurysms, infected aortic grafts). Neoaortoiliac reconstruction has advantages over extra anatomical bypass grafting; however use of autologous vein is associated with venous hypertension and compartment syndrome, alternatively cadaveric homografts are associated with high rates of perianastomotic haemorrhage, limb occlusion and pseudoaneurysm. Arterial repair using xenoprosthetic patches is associated with lower infection rates compared to the use of prosthetic material...

Coarctation of the aorta is an uncommon cause of treatment-resistant hypertension in adults. It is typically detected and treated in infancy or childhood with surgical or endovascular procedures. Most cases of recurrence of coarctation after repair occur in childhood or early adulthood; recurrence in older persons (>70 years) has rarely been reported. A 73-year-old woman was referred to us for the management of treatment-resistant hypertension accompanied by symptoms of claudication and headaches, which had resulted in multiple emergency room visits...

BACKGROUND: The Society of Vascular Surgery (SVS) guidelines currently suggest thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for grade II-IV and non-operative management (NOM) for grade I blunt traumatic aortic injury (BTAI). However, there is increasing evidence that grade II may also be observed safely. The purpose of this study was to compare the outcome of TEVAR and NOM for grade I-IV BTAI and determine if grade II can be safely observed with NOM. METHODS: The records of patients with BTAI from 2004 to 2015 at a Level I trauma center were retrospectively reviewed...

Thoracic endovascular repair is considered the first-line treatment in complicated acute type B dissection. Central venous catheters provide valuable vascular access during endovascular treatments. However, central venous catheters are not without complications. Herein, we report a case of central venous catheter insertion into the false lumen of a complicated acute type B aortic dissection by direct aortic puncture. The tip of the central venous catheter was in the false lumen. The central venous catheter was left in place initially and was removed after graft stent deployment...

Ruptured intracranial vertebral artery dissection is a cause of non-traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage. Urgent intervention should be considered to prevent fatal rebleeding. Endovascular parent artery occlusion, which is the initial treatment of choice, is not suitable for patients with a hypoplastic or occlusive contralateral vertebral artery. We report a case of ruptured vertebral artery dissection, which was successfully treated with double overlapping stent-assisted coiling.

Jos C van den Berg
The endovascular treatment of atherosclerotic disease of the infra-inguinal arteries has changed significantly over the last decades. In an attempt to overcome the high restenosis rates that characterize plain balloon angioplasty and stenting using bare mate stents drug-eluting balloon technology has been applied in the treatment of lesions of the superficial femoral and popliteal artery. This paper will give an overview of the rationale and the technology of drug-eluting balloons and will review currently available data from registries and randomized controlled trials...

Stent migration is a complication associated with endovascular coil embolization of intracranial aneurysms. We report a case of anterior communicating artery (ACoA) aneurysm that was successfully treated after stent migration during endovascular coil embolization without retrieval of the stent. A 47-year-old man presented with sudden onset severe headache. Patient was noted to have subarachnoid hemorrhage from a ruptured ACoA aneurysm. Emergency endovascular coil embolization was performed. The second coil embolization was scheduled for the neck-remnant portion with a stent after 16 days from the initial operation...

Endovascular redo aortic operations are a challenging undertaking. Techniques for treatment date almost as far back as the original open repair itself. Risk factors for failure following aortic repair include larger AAA necks, severe neck angulation, as well as clinical variables such as age, family history, obesity and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The armamentarium of endovascular treatments is vast and increasing. Aside from provisional embolization of endoleaks or deferment to open repair conversion, attention should be directed toward obtaining adequate proximal and distal sealing...

Some studies consider the different physical properties of the stent graft when compared with the blood vessel on the basis of vascular lesions that may require further intervention. We present a case in which a patient developed an intramural hematoma at the distal landing of previous thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) that required the relining with a flared prosthesis. During follow-up, we observed the appearance of more caudal hematoma. We decided to observe this lesion with close radiological controls...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to assess a model of physician modified scalloped stent graft (PMSG) on currently available thoracic aortic devices to extend the proximal landing zone in either zone 2, 1 or 0 of the aortic arch while preserving flow in the supra-aortic vessels on human cadaveric aorta. METHODS: Fresh human aortas were harvested at autopsy from adult subjects. A proximal scallop was made on the stent grafts based on direct measurements on the aortas to extend the proximal landing zone in zone 0 (n = 5), zone 1 (n = 5), and zone 2 (n = 5)...

EDITORIAL
Arka Chatterjee, William B Hillegass
Preprocedural lesion length and ankle-brachial indices (ABI) synergistically predict 12-month patency and repeat revacularization in claudicants treated with bare metal nitinol stents for femoropopliteal disease. This predictive length-ABI model will permit broader evidence-based indirect comparisons of newer femoropopliteal approaches such as drug eluting balloon treatment with or without atherectomy. The length-ABI model is a step to supplement and supplant randomized controlled trials with indirect comparisons as the necessary evidence source expediting innovation and optimizing personalized endovascular therapy for infrainguinal obstructive peripheral arterial disease...
