OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: The aim is to present current results of open complex aortic repair in patients with connective tissue disease (CTD). METHODS: This was a retrospective cross-border, single centre study. From February 2000 to April 2016 72 aortic operations were performed on 65 patients with CTD (41 male, median age 41 years [range 19-70 years]). Fifty-six patients (86%) underwent at least one previous aortic repair (71 open, four endovascular), including 33 patients (51%) operated before at the site of the procedure reported here...

BACKGROUND: Thoracic endovascular aortic repair is characterized by a substantial need for reintervention. Secondary open aortic procedure becomes necessary when further endoluminal options are exhausted. This synopsis and quantitative analysis of available evidence aims to overcome the limitations of institutional cohort reports on secondary open aortic procedure. METHODS AND RESULTS: Electronic databases were searched from 1994 to the present date with a prospectively registered protocol...

PURPOSE: To determine how many endovascular aneurysm sealing (EVAS) procedures with/without off-label use of chimneys (ChEVAS) could have been performed in a cohort of patients who had undergone fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (FEVAR). METHODS: Sixty patients (median age 76.3 years; 54 men) who underwent FEVAR in our institution between 2013 and 2015 were selected for the study. The median aneurysm diameter was 62.0 mm (interquartile range 59.3, 69.0). Preoperative computed tomography angiograms (CTA) were anonymized and sent to 2 physicians with experience of more than 40 ChEVAS interventions...

BACKGROUND: We would like to evaluate causes of Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair (TEVAR) failure and conversion to open surgery (COS) in high volume vascular center for open surgery, with low volume TEVAR procedures. METHODS: A total of 8 patients (6 males, mean aged 55.14 years) underwent COS after TEVAR. The indications for conversion to open surgery, intraoperative strategy, as well as early postoperative and mid follow-up results were analyzed. RESULTS: The indications for COS were persistent proximal type I endoleak with progressive aneurysm enlargement in two patients, endoleak type III in one patient, progressive aneurysm enlargement with no endoleak in one patient, stent graft migration in two patients, secondary aorto-esophageal fistula in one patient, secondary aorto-esophageal and aorto-bronchial fistula in one patient, as well as distal progression of the aneurysmal disease in 2 patient...

True femoral artery aneurysm is a rare vascular entity and is often associated with aortic or peripheral aneurysms. Life-threatening complications associated with peripheral arterial aneurysms include rupture, thrombosis, and embolization. In patients with multiple aneurysms, any symptomatic aneurysms should be treated first; in asymptomatic patients, the aneurysms can be repaired either simultaneously in a single operation or serially in a staged procedure. We report a case of concomitant true femoral aneurysm and bilateral iliac artery aneurysms, which were treated with a combination of open surgical and endovascular techniques...

BACKGROUND: Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) has become lately the procedure of choice in the treatment of most pathologies of descending thoracic aorta. Aortic arch aneurysms also came to be treated by TEVAR with various hybrid techniques or custom made scalloped/fenestrated stent-grafts. Zone 0; ascending TEVAR is more challenging than TEVAR of the descending thoracic aorta or aortic arch because of the more complex pathology, hemodynamics, and anatomy. Ascending TEVAR can be a lifesaving treatment in selected high surgical risk patients...

OBJECTIVE: Fenestrated and branched endovascular aneurysm repair (FB-EVAR) is a valid option to treat juxtarenal and pararenal abdominal aortic aneurysms and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms. Because successful deployment depends on complex maneuvers, hostile iliac artery anatomy (HIA) can prejudice the FB-EVAR outcome. The aim of the study was to evaluate the impact of HIA on FB-EVAR outcome. METHODS: Between 2010 and 2015, all patients undergoing FB-EVAR were prospectively categorized according to iliac anatomy (friendly iliac artery anatomy [FIA] or HIA)...

Objectives Hospital readmissions after surgical operations are considered serious events. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) consider surgical readmissions as preventable and hold hospitals responsible for them. Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm (EVAR) has become the first line modality of treatment for suitable patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). The purpose of this study is to retrospectively review the factors associated with hospital readmission after EVAR. Methods The 2013 EVAR targeted American College of Surgeons (ACS-NSQIP) database and generalized 2013 general and vascular surgery ACS-NSQIP participant use files were used for this study...

Acute aortic dissection is a life-threatening condition associated with high morbidity and mortality rates and a long history of challenges to both diagnose and manage this condition successfully. The International Registry of Acute Aortic Dissection (IRAD) was established in 1996 as a global database to understand this old disease better and improve care for dissection. IRAD initially targeted various areas including etiological factors of dissection, modes of presentation, clinical features, physical findings, imaging, management, and outcomes, and is currently branching out in more specific fields such as endovascular intervention, genetic profiling, and functional imaging...

BACKGROUND: The original 'candy-plug' technique has been reported to be beneficial for the treatment of residual perfused false lumen in patients with aortic dissection. However, this technique is also associated with several problems, such as narrowing of the true lumen and damage to the flap or vessel wall. Therefore, we modified the procedure to overcome these problems. Here we report a case in which the patient was successfully treated using the modified procedure. CASE PRESENTATION: A 59-year-old man presented with chronic type B aortic dissection with aneurysmal dilatation...

OBJECTIVE: The aortic arch (AA) is the main conduit of the left side of the heart, providing a blood supply to the head, neck, and upper limbs. As it travels through the thorax, the pattern in which it gives off the branches to supply these structures can vary. Variations of these branching patterns have been studied; however, a study providing a comprehensive incidence of these variations has not yet been conducted. The objective of this study was to perform a meta-analysis of all the studies that report prevalence data on AA variants and to provide incidence data on the most common variants...

PURPOSE: Preservation of intercostal arteries during thoracic aortic procedures reduces the risk of post-operative paraparesis. The origins of the intercostal arteries are visible on pre-operative computed tomography angiography (CTA), but rarely on intra-operative angiography. The purpose of this report is to suggest an image fusion technique for intra-operative localisation of the intercostal arteries during thoracic endovascular repair (TEVAR). TECHNIQUE: The ostia of the intercostal arteries are identified and manually marked with rings on the pre-operative CTA...
