Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) has become the intervention of choice for supra-threshold aortic aneurysms due to the lower 30-day mortality of EVAR as compared with open surgery, despite no long-term longevity gains. Trials such as EVAR-1 that established the current status of endovascular aortic intervention often excluded participants over the age of 80, and specific studies of EVAR in the elderly reveal higher mortality than accepted averages. Analyses of the cost-effectiveness of EVAR have not demonstrated superiority of endovascular intervention over open repair, in particular when considering complications such as endoleak...

INTRODUCTION: Gluteal artery aneurysms (GAA) are rare, accounting for less than 1% of all arterial aneurysms. Most of them are post-traumatic in nature and involve the superior gluteal artery (SGA), while injuries of the inferior gluteal artery (IGA) have been reported less frequently. We report an unusual case of patient with double saccular GAA of unknown etiology, involving both the SGA and IGA, successfully treated by endovascular embolization. CASE REPORT: A 80 years old man referred to our hospital complaining the progressive onset of left buttock pain and swelling exacerbated by sitting position in the last 4 months...

OBJECTIVES: Both hybrid and chimney techniques are used for reconstruction of supra-arch branches during thoracic endovascular aorta repair (TEVAR). Our objective was to summarize our experience with reconstruction of the left common carotid artery (LCCA) or left subclavian artery (LSA) and evaluate the indications for these 2 strategies. METHODS: The records of patients treated with hybrid or chimney TEVAR when 1 aortic branch (LSA/LCCA) needed to be covered were reviewed retrospectively...

Severe ascending aorta disease includes aneurysms, pseudoaneurysms (ascending aorta pseudoaneurysms), penetrating aortic ulcers and Type A aortic dissections. Surgical replacement of the aortic root, ascending aorta or aortic arch is the common treatment for severe ascending aortic disease involving the root, the ascending aorta and/or the arch. Despite good surgical results, there is still a risk for morbidity and mortality following surgery for ascending aorta replacement when elderly patients or patients at high risk for surgery are concerned...

BACKGROUND: Aneurysm expansion, and consequent endoleaks, after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is a major problem. Accurate prediction of aneurysm expansion is demanding for surgeons and remains difficult.Methods and Results:We retrospectively analyzed 157 cases of EVAR for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) using a bifurcated main-body stent-graft. There were 62 cases of aneurysm shrinkage after EVAR, 63 cases of stable aneurysm, and 32 cases of aneurysm expansion. Type I endoleaks were significantly increased in the aneurysm expansion group (EXP) compared with the stable (STB) and shrinkage (SHR) groups (EXP: 15...

BACKGROUND: Aortic coarctation (AC) is most commonly identified in pediatric patients; however, adults can present with late sequelae of untreated coarctation or complications of prior open repair. To date, there are limited data about the role of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) in this group of patients. The purpose of this analysis was to describe our experience with management of adult coarctation patients using TEVAR. METHODS: All TEVAR patients treated for primary coarctation or late sequelae of previous open repair (eg, pseudoaneurysm, recurrent coarctation or anastomotic stenosis related to index open coarctation repair) were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Retrograde false lumen perfusion is a common mode of failure after stent grafting chronic aortic dissection. Open fenestration during the first-stage elephant trunk (ET) creates a landing zone for second-stage endovascular ET completion in patients with a false lumen aneurysm. Our objectives were to assess long-term safety and durability of this technique. METHODS: From 2007 to 2014, 56 patients with thoracoabdominal dissection and aneurysm underwent stage 1 ET and open fenestration...

The success of endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms remains limited due to the development of endoleaks. Sac embolization has been proposed to manage endoleaks, but current embolizing materials are associated with frequent recurrence. An injectable agent that combines vascular occlusion and sclerosing properties has demonstrated promise for the treatment of endoleaks. Moreover, the inhibition of aneurysmal wall degradation via matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) may further prevent aneurysm progression...

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...
