INTRODUCTION: Late open surgical conversion following endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) may occur more frequently after performing EVAR in anatomy outside the instructions for use (IFU). This study reviews predictors and outcomes of late open surgical conversion for failed EVAR. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study reviewed all EVARs performed at the Ottawa Hospital between January 1999 and May 2015. Open surgical conversions >1 month post EVAR were identified...

Chimney EVAR (CHEVAR) and Fenestrated EVAR (FEVAR) are two options for management of very complex abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). While some anatomical factors may favor one strategy over the other, there are some cases where the anatomical challenges may require using a hybrid approach. We are reporting the case of an 84-year-old male with a 6.8×5.7cm infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm that arises immediately below the level of the renal arteries and extends down to just above the iliac bifurcation with occluded celiac and inferior mesenteric arteries and severe bilateral renal artery stenosis with caudally oriented right renal and cranially oriented left renal artery...

OBJECTIVE: Early data suggest that FEVAR is feasible but may have higher morbidity and unclear durability compared to open surgical repair (OSR) of complex abdominal aortic aneurysms (CAAA). We compared the early experience following elective FEVAR to traditional OSR of CAAA in a high-volume open aortic center. METHODS: All patients undergoing FEVAR and OSR for elective CAAA from 1/2010-7/2015 were identified. Univariate, multivariable logistic, and Cox hazards modeling were used to compare perioperative and intermediate outcomes...

Monitoring outcomes following endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) is critical. Although evidence from randomized controlled trials has solidified the role of EVAR, the analysis of outcomes and "real-world" data has uncovered limitations, improved the selection of appropriate patients, and underscored the importance of instructions for use. Subsequent studies demonstrated the learning curve of EVAR and gradual improvement of outcomes over time. Outcomes analyses will continue to play an important role, particularly as technological growth of endovascular therapy has enabled treatment of more complex aneurysm pathologies and patients...

Thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) is an increasingly recognized condition that is often diagnosed incidentally. This review discusses ten of the most relevant epidemiological and clinical secrets of this disease; (1) the difference in pathogenesis between ascending and descending TAAs. TAAs at these two sites act as different diseases, which is related to the different embryologic origins of the ascending and descending aorta. (2) The familial pattern and genetics of thoracic aneurysms. Syndromic TAAs only explain 5% of the pattern of inheritance...

BACKGROUND: Open repair (OR) for popliteal artery aneurysm (PAA) has recently been challenged by endovascular repair (ER) as the primary choice of treatment. The aim of the present study was to evaluate time trends in treatment modality and compare outcomes between OR and ER among electively operated patients after start of screening in 2010 for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), a disease highly associated with PAA. METHODS: Between January 1, 2009, and April 30, 2017, 102 procedures and 36 acute and 66 elective repairs for PAA were identified...

Concurrent thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysm is uncommon. It remains a formidable surgical challenge to vascular surgeons, as decision to treat in staged or simultaneous setting still debatable. We present, here, a case of a 62-year-old-man with asymptomatic concurrent thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms, which was successfully treated with two-stage hybrid endovascular repair. The aim of this case report is to discuss the treatment options available, possible associated complications and measures to prevent them...

Although the technology of endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is evolving that make it appealing for challenging anatomy, proximal aortic neck morphology, especially severe angulation, is still one of the most determinants for a successful procedure. We describe a patient of AAA with severely angulated proximal neck, in whom kinked stent graft limb occurred against severe angulation of proximal neck. Then, we suggested how to prevent this complication in the second patient...

BACKGROUND: To assess whether noncontrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (NC-MRI) is an alternative to contrast-enhanced computed tomography angiography (CTA) for aortoiliac measurements before endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). METHODS: This study encompasses 30 patients admitted for elective EVAR (27 men and 3 women). Two expert readers (vascular radiologist and vascular surgeon) reviewed CTA images in consensus and chose the proper endograft for each patient...

We report on a 54-year-old man who presented with an atypical, proximal, intraoperative endoleak after endovascular aortic repair with an Ovation endograft for a 65-mm-diameter abdominal aortic aneurysm. The endografting was complicated by inadvertent bilateral iliac limb insertion into the right gate without cannulation of the left gate. The endoleak was treated by brachial approach: Through the open left gate, the outflow inferior mesenteric artery was coil embolized and the inflow left gate was closed with an Amplatzer plug...

PURPOSE: The growth phases of medically treated abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are frequently associated with an (18)F-fluorodesoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) pattern involving low baseline and subsequent higher FDG uptake. However, the FDG-PET patterns associated with the endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of larger AAA are presently unknown. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between serial AAA FDG uptake measurements, obtained before EVAR and 1 and 6 months post-intervention and subsequent sac shrinkage at 6 months, a well-recognized indicator of successful repair...

OBJECTIVES: Loss of muscle mass has been associated with poor survival in several surgical patient populations, including those with an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). We wanted to replicate these findings and assesse the association between psoas muscle area (PMA) and survival in patients with an asymptomatic AAA. METHODS: Patients with an asymptomatic infrarenal AAA who underwent computed tomography (CT) scanning between January 1, 2007, and December 31, 2013, were included in this single-centre retrospective cohort study...

A 72-year-old man previously treated for an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) was diagnosed with the 70-mm-sized type IIIb aortic dissection. Endovascular repair was considered, but there was no stent graft passing through the 8-mm iliac graft that was used for open repair of the AAA. We sealed the 5-mm-sized intimal tear site, using an Amplatzer Vascular Plug, which successfully repaired. The patient was discharged and had no complications. Serial follow-up computerized tomography scans showed that the vascular plug was positioned without migration, and the size of the aorta decreased...

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a degenerative disease of the aortic wall with potentially fatal complications. Open repair (OR) was considered the gold standard, until the emergence of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), which is less invasive and equally (if not more) effective. As the popularity of endovascular procedures grows, related complications become more evident, with kidney damage being one of them. Although acute kidney injury (AKI) following EVAR is relatively common, its true incidence is still uncertain...

Background: Although endovascular repair for abdominal aortic aneurysm has been found to be beneficial in very elderly patients, some patients have contraindications to this procedure. For nonagenarians, the results of open repair remain unclear. The purpose of this study was to compare the outcomes of open vs. endovascular repair for abdominal aortic aneurysm in nonagenarian patients. Methods and Results: Fourteen patients undergoing open surgical repair and 24 undergoing endovascular repair for abdominal aortic aneurysm were evaluated...

Herein, we report a rare case of type B aortic dissection that occurred after endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). A 66-year-old man underwent successful EVAR for an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Computed tomography (CT) 2 years after EVAR showed a type B aortic dissection with stent-graft migration and AAA expansion. Juxtarenal aortic expansion precluded simple stent-graft placement. He underwent hepato-spleno-renal bypass followed by stent-graft placement just below the superior mesenteric artery...

A 69-year-old man with a type IA endoleak that developed approximately 21 months after endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) of a 46 mm diameter aneurysm was referred to our department. He had impaired renal function, Parkinson's disease, and previous cerebral infarction. Computed tomography angiography showed a type IA endoleak with neck dilatation and that the aneurysm had grown to 60 mm in diameter. We decided to perform aortic banding. The type IA endoleak disappeared after banding and the patient was discharged on postoperative day 10...
