BACKGROUND: The most important structural proteins of the vascular wall are collagen and elastin. Genetically linked connective tissue diseases lead to degeneration, aneurysm formation and spontaneous dissection or rupture of arteries. The most well-known are Marfan syndrome, vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (type IV), Loeys-Dietz syndrome and familial aortic aneurysms and dissections. OBJECTIVE: This review article addresses the current status of endovascular treatment options for important connective tissue diseases...

A total of 576 patients underwent endovascular aneurysm repair using main body devices for treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms or iliac artery aneurysms. During follow-up, type IIIb endoleaks caused by fabric tear occurred in six patients (1.0% [6/576]). The device used was Zenith (Cook Medical, Bloomington, Ind) in five cases and Talent (Medtronic, Santa Rosa, Calif) in one case. All endoleaks were close to the flow divider of the main body devices. The distance between the lower renal artery and the top end of the contralateral leg was 53 ± 14 mm...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of our study is to verify the role of metalloproteinases in endovascular repair (EVAR) and OPEN surgery treatment for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Postoperatively, these enzymes could represent an important biomarker to adapt diagnostic tests and further investigations during follow-up. MATERIAL AND METHOD: From 2004 to 2008, 55 patients were considered with AAA. Of these, 33 patients (mean age: 70.1 years), (mean AAA diameter: 5.4cm) were treated with OPEN surgery (group A) and 22 (mean age: 74...

We report a case of marked aneurysmal expansion by type II endoleaks 8 years after thoracic endovascular aortic repair. The preoperative chest computed tomography (CT) demonstrated the descending thoracic aorta of 95 mm with type II endoleak. We performed suture closure of 3 endoleaks and partial aneurysmorrhaphy via left thoracotomy under partial cardiopulmonary bypass. The postoperative CT showed no endoleak with shrinkage of the aneurysm. The patient was discharged on the 21th postoperative day uneventfully...

OBJECTIVE: This study evaluated the morbidity of endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) in patients with concomitant common iliac artery aneurysm (CCIAA). METHODS: This was a retrospective review of all patients who underwent elective EVAR from June 2006 through June 2012 at a single institution. Demographics, comorbidities, preoperative presentation, intraoperative details, and postoperative complications were tabulated. Patients with CCIAA were categorized into three groups according to the distal extent of their iliac limb: iliac limb extension into the external iliac artery with internal iliac artery coil embolization (EE); flared iliac limb ≥20 mm in diameter to the iliac bifurcation (FL); and iliac limb ≤20 mm ending proximal to the CCIAA (no-FL)...

BACKGROUND: Although the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) grade was established for statistical purposes, it is often used prognostically. However, older patients undergoing elective surgery are typically ASA III, which limits patient stratification. We look at the prognostic effect on early complications and survival of using ASA and self-reported physical fitness to stratify patients undergoing endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms. METHODS: Data were extracted from a trial database...

Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair has been widely used for the treatment of AAA as a safe and efficient method, but endoleaks causing persistent expansion of aneurysm sac may cause aneurysmal rupture and death. Type 3 endoleak is rare but a predominant cause of late rupture. Type 3b endoleak can be misdiagnosed as type 2 endoleak, which is more frequent. Here we report two cases of type 3b endoleak mimicking type 2 endoleak, which were successfully treated by open surgery of partial explantation of the stent-graft and endoaneurysmal interposition graft replacement...

PURPOSE: Cone shape neck is regarded as non-instruction for use (IFU) in most commercial stent graft. However, in real practice, liberal application of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) for outside of IFU happens. We investigate non-adherence to conical neck anatomy in terms of early aneurysmal exclusion results. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January 2010 to December 2013, 105 patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) underwent EVAR in Daegu Catholic University Medical Center...

PURPOSE: Endotension can present a real challenge for the long-term success of EVAR. Sometimes it can be associated to liver dysfunction and consequent plasmatic alterations as in the two cases reported here. CASE REPORT: Significant and progressive AAA sac enlargement, without radiological signs of endoleak, was observed in two patients during a 3-year follow-up after EVAR. The first was a 70-year-old man affected by viral liver cirrhosis; the second was a 71-year-old man with cirrhosis due to alcoholic liver disease...
