Background -Radiation exposure during fluoroscopically-guided interventions such as endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) is a growing concern for operators. This study aimed to measure DNA damage/repair markers in operators perfoming EVAR. Methods -Expression of the DNA damage/repair marker, gamma-H2AX (γ-H2AX) and DNA damage response (DDR) marker, phosphorylated ataxia telangiectasia mutated (pATM), were quantified in circulating lymphocytes in operators during the peri-operative period of endovascular (infra-renal [IEVAR], branched [BEVAR] and fenestrated [FEVAR]) and open aortic repair using flow cytometry...

BACKGROUND: Abdominal aortic aneurysms pose a substantial clinical burden, and a significant proportion are not anatomically suitable for open repair or standard endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), instead requiring fenestrated EVAR (fEVAR). We sought to compare clinical outcomes and trends over time in patients undergoing fEVAR in Australia. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of all patients undergoing fEVAR at a tertiary referral centre between 2010 and 2015, including outcomes and complications, both as inpatients and after discharge...

PURPOSE: To determine how many endovascular aneurysm sealing (EVAS) procedures with/without off-label use of chimneys (ChEVAS) could have been performed in a cohort of patients who had undergone fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (FEVAR). METHODS: Sixty patients (median age 76.3 years; 54 men) who underwent FEVAR in our institution between 2013 and 2015 were selected for the study. The median aneurysm diameter was 62.0 mm (interquartile range 59.3, 69.0). Preoperative computed tomography angiograms (CTA) were anonymized and sent to 2 physicians with experience of more than 40 ChEVAS interventions...

INTRODUCTION: Infectious complications after FEVAR cause significant problems, with radical surgery considered to be the last resort for treatment. CASE REPORT: A 72 year old man presented with infection 1 month after FEVAR. Conservative therapy with percutaneous abscess drainage and antibiotics suppressed the infection for 10 months; however, when new peri-aortic abscesses developed, the patient agreed to revision surgery. The endograft was explanted and an autologous in situ venous reconstruction was performed...

OBJECTIVE: Although few studies have reported outcomes after branched or fenestrated endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (FEVAR) of abdominal aortic aneurysms involving visceral vessels (AAA-Vs), no multi-institutional study has compared FEVAR with open surgery (OS) for AAA-Vs. Our objective was to compare 30-day outcomes after FEVAR vs OS for AAA-Vs. METHODS: Patients who underwent FEVAR (n = 535) and OS (n = 1207) for elective AAA-Vs were identified from the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) 2008 to 2013 database...

Following new trends in precision medicine, Juxatarenal Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (JAAA) treatment has been enabled by using patient-specific fenestrated endovascular grafts. The X-ray guided procedure requires precise orientation of multiple modular endografts within the arteries confirmed via radiopaque markers. Patient-specific 3D printed phantoms could familiarize physicians with complex procedures and new devices in a risk-free simulation environment to avoid periprocedural complications and improve training...

OBJECTIVE: Endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) with a fenestrated device (FEVAR) allows an extension of the proximal sealing zone above the renal arteries to an adequate, healthier segment of the aorta. This feature makes FEVAR an option to treat patients with a diseased aortic neck or type Ia endoleak after EVAR. The aim of this investigation was to present a single-center experience with FEVAR for patients with an abdominal aortic endograft in situ compared with primary FEVAR...

To report a case of pararenal aortic aneurysm (PAAA) with narrowed iliac arteries treated by the chimney technique combined with the INCRAFT(®) AAA stent graft system. A 75-year-old man was diagnosed with a 55-mm PAAA. Patient was judged unfit for open repair and for standard endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) due to its clinical and anatomical requirements. Custom-made fenestrated device (FEVAR) was excluded due to the presence of narrowed and heavily calcified iliac axes. Consequently, patient underwent auspicious endovascular aneurysm repair with the INCRAFT System and chimney grafts in the superior mesenteric artery and both renal arteries...

BACKGROUND: Fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (FEVAR) is increasingly being used for juxtarenal aortic aneurysms. The aim of this study was to review long-term results and assess the importance of changing stent-graft design on outcomes. METHODS: This was a retrospective review of all patients who underwent FEVAR within a single unit over 12 years (February 2003 to December 2015). Kaplan-Meier analysis of survival, and freedom from target vessel loss, aneurysm expansion, graft-related endoleak and secondary intervention was performed...

BACKGROUND: Fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (FEVAR) allows endovascular treatment of thoracoabdominal and juxtarenal aneurysms previously outside the indications of use for standard devices. However, because of considerable device costs and increased procedure time, FEVAR is thought to result in financial losses for medical centers and physicians. We hypothesized that surgeon leadership in the coding, billing, and contractual negotiations for FEVAR procedures will increase medical center contribution margin (CM) and physician reimbursement...

BACKGROUND: Advances in endovascular aneurysm repair now allow surgeons to treat high-risk patients with complex aortic aneurysms. Stringent selection criteria for repair exist from an anatomic and technical perspective; however, there is a paucity of literature examining frailty in patients being evaluated for fenestrated and branched endovascular aortic repair (FEVAR). As a marker of frailty well supported in the literature, we hypothesized that preoperative hypoalbuminemia would increase risk for short-term mortality after endovascular juxtarenal and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair...

Fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (FEVAR) is an alternative to open repair of complex aortic aneurysms. Despite promising short-term results, the technical complexities of this procedure remain a considerable challenge. The risk of technical failure with loss of visceral or renal arteries is ubiquitous even in the most experienced hands, and thus many patients with unfavorable anatomy are frequently denied FEVAR. We have adopted a new technique for FEVAR that involves retrograde brachial artery access and stepwise deployment of the endograft during target vessel catheterization, overcoming many anatomic limitations encountered from a transfemoral approach...

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...

BACKGROUND: Ascending and thoracic aortic dissections progress into thoracoabdominal aneurysms 20-40% of the time, due to the initial aortic injury with associated weakness of the aortic wall. The increased firmness of the intimal flap usually results in a collapsed true lumen that does not spontaneously reexpand even with progressive dilatation of the aorta. In an effort to identify a safe and effective treatment path for this complex disease process, we present 4 cases illustrating successful sequential thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) and fenestrated endovascular aortic repair (FEVAR)...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: Fenestrated endovascular repair (FEVAR) has been used to treat complex abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). The risk of renal function deterioration compared with infrarenal endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) has not been determined. METHODS: Patients with preserved renal function (estimated glomerular filtration rate [eGFR] > 45 mL/minute) enrolled in two prospective, non-randomised studies evaluating Zenith fenestrated and AAA stent grafts were matched (1:2) by propensity scores for age, sex, hypertension, diabetes, and pre-operative eGFR...
