Repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms with endovascular techniques has emerged as the first line of therapy, due to procedural ease and excellent patient outcomes. Open aneurysm repair is increasingly used as a secondary option for lesions with anatomic complexity that involve arterial branches. Understanding the impact of endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysms repair on the shift in vascular operation practice for abdominal aortic aneurysms repair, requires a comprehensive and risk-adjusted review of operative outcomes between the 2 repair types...

The coexistence of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) and Congenital Pelvic Kidney (CPK) is infrequent. Various treatment modalities have been reported in literature for treatment of the above condition. We report a complete endovascular modality for the treatment of this association, especially for high-risk patients. Only one such treatment has been reported before. Compared to this previously reported case, we would like to share our experience with additional prototype testing, prior to surgery which provided us with more detailed information about the planning and deployment of the branched endograft...

BACKGROUND: Multiple overlapping uncovered stents (MOUS) system has shown potentials in managing complex aortic aneurysms with side branches involvement. It promotes the development of thrombus by modulating local flow pattern that reduces the wall tension, while maintaining patency of side branches. However the modulation of local hemodynamic parameters depends on various factors that have not been assessed comprehensively. METHODS: Aneurysm 3D geometry was reconstructed based on CT images...

BACKGROUND: We aim to describe trends in failure to rescue (FTR) among elderly patients undergoing elective open aortic aneurysm repair (OAR) and endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). MATERIALS AND METHODS: All patients aged ≥80 y recorded in the Vascular Quality Initiative database (2002-2014) undergoing nonruptured infrarenal AAA repair were included. Primary outcome was FTR, defined as percentage of deaths in patients who had a complication within 30 d of surgery...

PURPOSE: Morphine is administered intravenously for pain management in the perioperative period. The effect of the inflammatory response to surgery on morphine distribution across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) in humans was investigated. We hypothesized that a graded surgically induced, systemic inflammatory response alters cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) levels of morphine, morphine-3-glucuronide (M3G), and morphine-6-glucuronide (M6G) through a temporary reduction in BBB drug efflux transporter function...

PURPOSE: Endovascular treatment of coarctation of aorta (CoA) by self-expandable Nitinol stents is one of the recognized treatment methods and may be an alternative to surgery or balloon-expandable stent implantation for CoA but there is little information about midterm to long term results of self-expandable stents. METHODS: Sixty-two patients with CoA (40 men), with a mean age of 30.7 ± 11 years, (range 17-63 years) underwent stent implantation with Optimed self-expandable Nitinol stents between 2005 and 2014...

Background Thoracic aortic aneurysm rupture is often a fatal condition. Emergent thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) has emerged as a suitable treatment option. Unfortunately, respiratory complications from hemothorax continue to be an important cause of morbidity and mortality even after successful management of the aortic rupture. We hypothesize that early hemothorax decompression after TEVAR for ruptured aneurysms decreases the rate of postoperative respiratory complications. Methods Single-center, retrospective eight-year review of ruptured thoracic aneurysms treated with TEVAR...

Aortic aneurysms involving the ascending aorta, aortic arch, and descending thoracic aorta have been a challenging entity to surgically treat for over 60 years. Despite the mortality of the disease, early open surgical procedures also had significant morbidity and mortality. The inherent risk in treating multiple anatomic segments simultaneously led to the innovation of the staged elephant trunk (ET) approach by Borst in 1983. To avoid the thoracotomy and associated complications related to the second stage of the procedure, an endovascular completion paradigm was begun by Volodos in 1991...

The endovascular realm has steadily increased its footing in the treatment of the aorta and all of its territories since the foundational case in 1990 by Parodi. The aortic arch, however, continues to be one of the last bastions for treatment via open surgery, which remains the gold standard. Significant comorbidity and prior cardiac surgery prevent open surgery from being the only preferred option, allowing novel endovascular procedures to be considered. Since 1999, more advanced endovascular systems have been created by companies such as Cook Medical, Bolton Medical, Medtronic, Endospan, Gore Medical, and, recently, Kawasumi...

PURPOSE: To report experiences of the sandwich technique (ST) for preservation of pelvic flow during endovascular repair of complex aortic or aortoiliac aneurysms. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eight patients underwent elective endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) using the ST between March 2013 and February 2017. The anatomic indications for the ST were complex aortoiliac aneurysms (5 cases), abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) with non-diseased short common iliac arteries (2 cases) and AAA with unilateral occluded iliac artery (1 case)...

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...

INTRODUCTION: We report a case of a 57-year old man with a successful total endovascular treatment of a symptomatic penetrating arterial ulcer (PAU) of a lusorian artery together with a standard endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair. The lusorian artery is an aberrant subclavian artery and a congenital aortic arch anomaly with a reported prevalence of 0.4 to 2.6 %. Typical for the base of the lusorian artery is a Kommerell diverticulum making an endovascular approach even more difficult...

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...

PURPOSE: To report emergent transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) to treat acute severe aortic regurgitation caused by valve cusp dysfunction following proximal migration of an endograft implanted in the ascending aorta during endovascular arch repair. CASE REPORT: A 65-year-old man had been previously treated with thoracic and fenestrated endografts in a 2-stage procedure for a chronic type B dissection. At 2-year follow-up, aneurysmal evolution of the distal arch led to development of a proximal type Ia endoleak...

PURPOSE: To provide an endovascular strategy of treating patent re-entries adjacent to visceral branches in the management of aortic dissections. CASE REPORT: A 45-year-old male who had received endovascular treatment for a type B aortic dissection was again admitted for his intermittent abdominal pain. Distal tears located in the reno-visceral segment was left untreated in the initial procedure, and was thought to be related to the expansion of the false lumen during follow-up...

Durability of endovascular aneurysm repair is critical, since a significant proportion of patients suffer from procedure-related complications and secondary interventions after repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms. Therefore, regular follow up including imaging is recommended. The rationale behind current surveillance programs is to allow early detection and elective treatment of complications. However, current recommendations are laborious and resource consuming, may be deleterious to many patients and are largely inefficient...

Eric C Kuo, Sukgu M Han
Thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms are increasing in incidence. Rupture is associated with a high rate of morbidity and mortality. The historic gold standard of open repair can be performed with low rates of complications at centers of excellence. However, these results are not universally achievable, with significantly higher rates of mortality reported from statewide studies. With the advent of endovascular therapy, techniques to mitigate the physiologic stress of open surgery have been developed. Hybrid open/endovascular operations are being undertaken with total visceral debranching followed by endografting...

REVIEW
Giorgio Zanotti, Thomas Brett Reece, Muhammad Aftab
Aortic arch surgery remains one of the most technically challenging procedures in cardiac surgery. It demands consideration of myocardial, brain, spinal cord, and lower body protection and rigorous surgical technique. Novel surgical approaches and refinements in brain and end organ protection strategies, liberal use of antegrade cerebral perfusion and moderate hypothermia have made arch repair safer. As endovascular technology and open surgical techniques evolve, aortic surgeons will need to continue to learn and incorporate these methods into practice in order to improve outcomes...
