AIM: To generalize our experience of step-by-step hybrid thoracoabdominal aortic replacement. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twenty-three patients were enrolled who underwent staged hybrid treatment of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm. There were 5 (21.7%) women and 18 (78.3%) men aged 61.4±8.3 years (37-74 years). The first stage was proximal debranching, the second - distal (abdominal) procedure and the third - stenting of the thoracoabdominal aorta. RESULTS: There were no any complications after proximal debranching and aortic stenting...

OBJECTIVE: Chylothorax is a potentially deadly complication that can occur after thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) repair. We describe our contemporary experience (2005-2014) with this complication, our efforts to identify perioperative variables associated with it, and our attempts to assess treatment outcomes. METHODS: We reviewed the records of 1092 consecutive patients who underwent TAAA repair between 2005 and 2014. Standard bivariate analysis was used to test for between-group differences...

Thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms are among the most challenging pathologic conditions vascular surgeons have to face. Endovascular treatment brought the prospect of being able to treat these complex aneurysms with less invasiveness and recent outcomes already challenge those of open repair. Plus, this technique offers a therapeutic option for patients who had none, due to significant comorbidities limiting open repair. Spinal cord injury is a major complication after complex aneurysm repair that dramatically affects patient's quality of life, even if technical success - aneurysm exclusion from circulation - has been achieved...

PURPOSE: To evaluate initial and midterm clinical outcomes of aortic aneurysms involving the proximal anastomotic aneurysm (AAPAA) following initial open repair for infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm. METHODS: Between July 2006 and August 2015, 24 patients underwent elective endovascular repair for the treatment of AAPAAs at our institution. AAPAA classification has been categorized as three types. Type I AAPAA is the most extensive, extending from the descending aorta to the prior proximal anastomosis as similar to Crawford type II or III thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA)...

OBJECTIVE: Aortic dissection (AD) often involves the infrarenal aorta. We review our experience with open infrarenal aortic repair with or without false lumen intentional placement (FLIP) of endografts in the proximal dissected aorta as part of a hybrid strategy to treat complex AD. METHODS: A prospectively maintained database of patients undergoing intervention for AD was reviewed. Data regarding diagnosis, imaging features, nature of the infrarenal repair (one- vs two-stage procedure), endoleaks, need for additional interventions, morbidity, and mortality were collected...

BACKGROUND: Fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (FEVAR) is an evolving technique to treat juxtarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). Catheterization of visceral and renal vessels after the deployment of the fenestrated main body device is often challenging, usually requiring additional fluoroscopy and multiple digital subtraction angiograms. The aim of this study was to assess the clinical utility and accuracy of a computed tomography angiography (CTA)-fluoroscopy image fusion technique in guiding visceral vessel cannulation during FEVAR...

BACKGROUND: The need for intercostal artery (ICA) reattachment in surgery for descending thoracic aortic aneurysm (DTAA) or thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) remains controversial. We reviewed our experience over a 14-year period to assess the effects of ICA management on neurologic outcome after DTAA/TAAA repair. METHODS: Intraoperative data were reviewed to ascertain the status of T3-12 ICAs and L1-4 ICAs. Arteries were classified as reattached, ligated, occluded, or not exposed...

A 62-year-old man presented to our department with abdominal pain and diarrhea for 3 weeks on a background of previous branched endovascular repair for a thoracoabdominal aneurysm. A triple-phase computed tomography scan of his abdomen and pelvis showed a large aortocaval fistula caused by a type III endoleak from a dislodged superior mesenteric artery stent. He was successfully treated with a BeGraft (Bentley Innomed, Hechingen, Germany) by using an endovascular technique.

BACKGROUND: Delayed paraplegia due to spinal cord ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI) remains one of the most severe complications of thoracoabdominal aneurysm surgery, for which effective prevention and treatment is still lacking. OBJECTIVES: The current study investigates whether spinal cord stimulation (SCS) postconditioning has neuroprotective effects against spinal cord IRI. METHOD: Ninety-six New Zealand white male rabbits were randomly divided into four groups as follows: a sham group and three experimental groups (C group, 2 Hz group, and 50 Hz group) n = 24/group...

The advancement of endovascular therapy has led to minimally invasive solutions to increasingly complex aortic pathology, including thoracoabdominal aneurysms and those involving the visceral segment. Upper extremity access is beneficial in a variety of these complex interventions, and may be absolutely required for certain procedures such as placement of parallel chimney grafts. Traditionally, the brachial artery has been the primary access site on the arm, using either a percutaneous or open approach. Brachial access is safe and effective, and remains suitable for the majority of clinical situations...

BACKGROUND: Spinal cord ischemic injury is the most devastating sequela of descending and thoracoabdominal aortic surgery. Motor-evoked potentials (MEPs) have been used to intraoperatively assess motor tract function, but it remains unclear whether MEP monitoring can decrease the incidence of postoperative motor deficits. Therefore, we reviewed multicenter medical records of patients who had undergone descending and thoracoabdominal aortic repair (both open surgery and endovascular repair) to assess the association of MEP monitoring with postoperative motor deficits...

The most common visceral revascularization technique during open repair of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAA) is the "inclusion technique," but its main long-term drawback is that the retained portion of the diseased aorta might be prone to further dilatation, thus giving rise to a recurrent visceral aortic patch aneurysm. This brief report presents 4 consecutive cases of visceral aortic patch aneurysms treated by means of fenestrated and branched endovascular approach with custom-made endografts. The procedures were technically successful in all 4 patients and no major complications were recorded at 11...

Thrombus in the thoracic aorta not related to aneurysm or atherosclerosis is a rare clinical entity with a limited number of cases reported. Floating thrombus is defined as non-adherent part of the thrombus floating within the aortic lumen. Herein, we present a 48-year-old woman who presented with progressive midline dull, aching abdominal pain of 2-day duration. Thoracoabdominal computed tomography revealed a free floating thrombus extending from the aortic arch into the superior mesenteric artery. Transesophageal echocardiography confirmed the findings of a thrombus extending through the aortic arch...
