BACKGROUND: Chronic dissection of the thoracic and thoracoabdominal aorta as sequela of a prior type A or B dissection is a challenging problem that requires close radiographic surveillance and prompt operative intervention in the presence of symptoms or aneurysm formation. Open repair of chronic thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic dissection using deep hypothermia has been our preferred method to treat this complex pathology. The advantages of this technique include organ and spinal cord protection, the flexibility to extend the repair proximally into the arch, and the ability to limit ischemia to all vascular beds...

BACKGROUND: Reconstruction of the aortic major branches during thoracic endovascular aortic repair is complicated because of the complex anatomic configuration and variation of the aortic arch. In situ laser fenestration has shown great potential for the revascularization of aortic branches. This study aims to evaluate the feasibility, effectiveness, and safety of in situ laser fenestration on the three branches of the aortic arch during thoracic endovascular aortic repair. METHODS AND RESULTS: Before clinical application, the polytetrafluoroethylene and Dacron grafts were fenestrated by an 810-nm laser system ex vivo, which did not damage the bare metal portion of the endografts and created a clean fenestration while maintaining the integrity of the endografts...

The purpose of this study is to assess the result of total arch replacement(TAR) using manufactured frozen elephant trunk(FET) for chronic aortic dissection after initial repair including the effect of aortic remodeling by the FET. Between 2003 and 2015, we performed 11 TAR using manufactured FET. Initial repairs before were 9 ascending aortic replacements and 2 Bentall operations. The entry of residual dissection was located at arch in 7 and at distal anastomosis site in 4. There was no hospital death. The operative complication included 2 surgical site infection, 1 interstitial pneumonia and 1 paraplegia with almost full recovery...

Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) combined with all-neck-branch reconstruction (total debranching TEVAR)[td TEVAR] is applied to aortic arch aneurysms as a minimally invasive procedure to improve treatment results. We report the initial and long-term results of td TEVAR for the reoperation of aortic arch aneurysm. By September 2016, td TEVAR for reoperation had been applied in 5 cases. The reasons for the reoperation were dilation of the arch aneurysm after ascending aorta replacement in 4 cases and localized dissection of the proximal landing zone after zone 2 TEVAR in 1 case...

BACKGROUND: Antegrade cerebral perfusion (ACP) is the most widely used cerebral protection strategy for complex aortic repair and includes unilateral (u-ACP) and bilateral (b-ACP) techniques. The superiority of b-ACP over u-ACP has been the subject of much debate. Focusing on type A aortic dissection requiring total arch replacement, we investigated the clinical effects of b-ACP versus u-ACP. METHODS: Between September 2006 and August 2014, 203 patients presenting with type A aortic dissection (median age, 51...

In this study, three-dimensional printing (3Dp) models and simulation surgeries (SSs) were applied in two challenging aortic cases. The first was an abdominal aortic aneurysm with a complex neck, and the second was a thoracic aortic dissection aneurysm (TADA) with an angled arch. In order to avoid unpredictable obstacles and difficulties, we made optimal surgical plans by using 3D models and virtual simulations. Based on preoperative evaluation system, the surgical plans seemed more reasonable and time-saving...

BACKGROUND: Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS) is an aggressive aortopathy with a proclivity for aortic aneurysm rupture and dissection at smaller diameters than other connective tissue disorders. We reviewed our surgical experience of children with LDS to validate our guidelines for prophylactic aortic root replacement (ARR). METHODS: We reviewed all children (younger than 18 years) with a diagnosis of LDS who underwent ARR at our institution. The primary endpoint was mortality, and secondary endpoints included complications and the need for further interventions...

Kommerell diverticulum is uncommon, and it carries risks of dissection or rupture. Hybrid aortic arch repair is being used increasingly for this pathology. We report the hybrid arch repair of Kommerell diverticulum in a 72-year-old woman known for muscular dystrophy and right aortic arch with aberrant left subclavian artery. Head-vessel debranching was performed through median sternotomy using a handmade, bifurcated, Dacron graft. Stent-grafting was performed from the ascending aorta to the proximal descending aorta...

Patients with acute aortic dissections involving the arch and descending aorta can effectively be treated using the frozen elephant trunk technique. We describe here the novel technique of temporary banding of the descending aorta onto the stent of the hybrid graft in 3 patients who developed unmanageable bleeding from the distal suture line due to retrograde false lumen perfusion and disintegration of the adventitia. Retrograde false lumen perfusion was stopped and therefore bleeding controlled in all patients...

Atrial septal defects can be closed surgically or percutaneously. However, percutaneous closure of atrial septal defects carries some risks. Embolization of the atrial septal occluder is the major adverse event. Embolization of the device into the main pulmonary artery, left atrium, right ventricle, aortic arch, descending aorta, abdominal aorta, iliac bifurcation, and iliac arteries can be seen. We report the case of a 19-year-old man with migration of an Amplatzer (St Jude Medical, St Paul, MN) atrial septal occluder into the iliac bifurcation with the development of abdominal aortic dissection 1 month after successful percutaneous closure...

Aortic arch reconstruction is one of the most challenging operations in aortic surgery. Anatomical abnormalities of the aortic arch, including bovine aortic arch, aberrant right subclavian artery, and single vertebral artery have direct impact on the choice of surgical procedures and methods of brain protection.The risk of aortic arch reconstruction and the difficulty of operation, it is possible to avoid the injury of patients by strictly grasping the indication of operation. Intraoperative arterial cannulation and brain protection strategies are directly related to the success of the operation...
