Treatment of thoracic aortic aneurysms constitutes high mortality and morbidity rates despite improvements in surgery, anesthesia, and technology. Endovascular stent grafting may be an alternative therapy with lower risks when compared with conventional techniques. However, sometimes the branches of the aortic arch may require transport to the proximal segments prior to successful thoracic aortic endovascular stent grafting. Atherosclerosis is accounted among the etiology of both aneurysms and occlusive diseases that can coexist in the same patient...

Isolated internal iliac artery aneurysms (IIIAAs) are extremely rare. We present the case of a 75-year-old white Caucasian male patient admitted for right lower limb deep venous thrombosis and low-risk pulmonary embolism due to the compression of the external iliac vein from an IIIAA. A review of the literature was also performed to identify the epidemiologic, clinical characteristics and diagnostic and operative strategies of this disease. At present, a recommendation for the best operative strategy in the presence of an IIIAA is difficult...

An 84-year-old woman underwent single-debranched thoracic endovascular aortic repair for aortic aneurysm. A few hours later, malperfusion of the left upper extremity occurred. Surgical exploration revealed a tubular-shaped intima packed in the debranched graft. As computed tomography showed localized dissection in the right external iliac artery probably due to access route injury, the intima roll was thought to have migrated from the iliac artery. This extremely rare case is described in detail with a discussion of the potential mechanism...

Purpose The objective of this study was to investigate the preoperatively definable risk factors which predict the aneurysm sac expansion caused by persistent type 2 endoleak after endovascular aneurysm repair. Methods Between 2008 and 2014, retrospective analysis was performed to examine the predictive risk factors for aneurysm sac enlargement caused by persistent type 2 endoleak, which was defined as a continuous endoleak present for more than six months. Aneurysm sac expansion was diagnosed if the maximum transverse diameter increased by 5 mm or more compared with the preoperative measurement...

A 77-year-old male patient presented with a symptomatic, 66-mm pararenal aortic aneurysm. The patient was classified as unsuitable for open surgery due to significant comorbidities. Fenestrated or branched endografts were contraindicated due to the poor iliac access (6 mm diameter). A double Nellix with chimney endovascular aneurysm sealing (ChEVAS) technique was selected to exclude the pararenal aortic aneurysm and to preserve renal arteries and the superior mesenteric artery. Technical preplanning considered the ideal proximal landing zone to be close to the origin of the almost occluded celiac trunk and the distal common iliac arteries as the ideal distal landing zone...

Total endovascular repair of TAAA using branched, fenestrated stent-grafts have been performed with promising midterm results. However, severe angulation of the aorta as well as close proximity of the visceral and renal artery ostia pose a significant technical challenge in designing and implanting branched, fenestrated stent-grafts. Parallel grafting offers an alternative technique, allowing an urgent, or emergent total endovascular repair of symptomatic, or ruptured TAAA. We describe a technique of 4-vessel incorporation in a total endovascular repair of TAAA, using multi-layered parallel endografting via bilateral femoral and unilateral brachial access...

OBJECTIVE: Preloaded endovascular delivery systems expand the anatomic eligibility for complex aortic repair by requiring only one iliac access vessel and providing a stable platform for guiding sheaths into challenging target vessels. This article reports the lessons learned and early clinical outcomes using a modified preloaded delivery system for fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (FEVAR) in three aortic centers in Europe. METHODS: From October 2015 to March 2016, consecutive patients presenting with extensive aortic aneurysm treated with a modified preloaded FEVAR were prospectively enrolled from three high volume European aortic centers...

Open repair for infra-renal abdominal aortic and iliac artery aneurysms (AAAs) is a robust treatment. On the other hand, endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) has been widespread because of its less invasiveness. However, patients after EVAR frequently require postoperative radiographic examinations and may feel anxiety for their endoleaks. We prospectively evaluated Health-related Quality of Life of the patients with these two fashions using the 8-item Short Form (SF-8). From 2011 to 2013, 89 consecutive elective cases of AAAs were treated...

BACKGROUND: Diminished pelvic arterial flow as a result of intentional coverage/embolization of internal iliac arteries (IIA) during isolated endovascular common iliac artery aneurysm (CIAA) repair or endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms (EVAR) may result in symptomatic pelvic ischemia. Although generally well tolerated, in severe cases, pelvic ischemia may manifest as recalcitrant buttock claudication, vasculogenic impotence, or perineal, vesicle, rectal, and/or spinal cord ischemia...

BACKGROUND: Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) with a modular endograft has become the preferred treatment for abdominal aortic aneurysms. A novel concept is endovascular aneurysm sealing (EVAS), consisting of dual endoframes surrounded by polymer-filled endobags. This dual-lumen configuration is different from a bifurcation with a tapered trajectory of the flow lumen into the two limbs and may induce unfavorable flow conditions. These include low and oscillatory wall shear stress (WSS), linked to atherosclerosis, and high shear rates that may result in thrombosis...

PURPOSE: Spontaneous dissection of iliac arteries, without involvement of the aorta, is rare. Only few cases of endovascular treatment of this condition are reported in the current literature. We report false-lumen embolization strategy as an adjunct to stent-grafting of the true lumen. CASE REPORT: A 68-year-old male patient was admitted to our institution with the incidental finding of an isolated iliac dissection with a false lumen aneurysm. He was electively treated with successful segmental iliac stent-grafting to cover the primary entry tear in the common iliac artery...

Mycotic aneurysms and prosthetic graft infections are traditionally treated with excision of the infected tissue or graft, often requiring anatomical or extra-anatomical bypass, carrying significant morbidity and mortality. Currently, the role of endovascular repair without excision in this setting has yet to be defined. We present two case scenarios whereby mycotic pseudoaneurysms were successfully treated with endovascular stent graft coverage, and to present an in-depth review of endovascular in-situ revascularziation in the treatment of arterial and graft infections...

About 20% of patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms have associated iliac aneurysms. Distal sealing during the endovascular treatment of aortic-iliac aneurysms is a challenge that has led to the emergence of several technical options to achieve this goal over the years. Internal iliac artery embolization is associated with the risk of ischemic complications, such as gluteal necrosis, lower limb neurological deficit, colonic ischemia, impotence and gluteal claudication. This article summarizes the technical options for endovascular treatment of aortoiliac aneurysms with different approaches to preserving the patency of internal iliac arteries...

Infectious anastomotic pseudoaneurysm complicating renal transplant is rare, but probably under-reported with <30 cases worldwide. We report a 45-year-old man with hypertension, diabetes mellitus and end stage renal failure, who had a renal transplant anastomosed to the right external iliac artery and vein. Postoperatively, he made a slow recovery with malaise and persistent vague right iliac fossa discomfort. Ultrasound scan 1 month postoperatively showed perinephric collection, and fluid culture grew Enterococcus faecium and Pseudomonas aeruginosa...
