Spinal cord injury remains a major adverse event of extended thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic surgical procedures. Preoperative identification of the Adamkiewicz artery and prompt reattachment of the targeted intercostal arteries during operation should contribute to preventing spinal cord injury. In this report, we describe a simple and definite identification of the critical intercostal artery during extended descending and thoracoabdominal aortic surgical procedures.

OBJECTIVES: Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is considered the treatment of choice for abdominal aortic aneurysms with suitable anatomy. In order to improve radiation safety, European Directive (2013/59) requires member states to implement diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) in radio-diagnostic and interventional procedures. This study aimed to determine local DRLs for EVAR across five European centres and identify an interim European DRL, which currently remains unestablished. METHODS: Retrospective data was collected for 180 standard EVARs performed between January 2014 and July 2015 from five specialist centres in Ireland (n=2) and Italy (n=3)...

Aortic graft infection is a potentially lethal complication of open and endovascular repair of aortic aneurysms. Graphene is the only existing two-dimensional material, and its unique structure gives graphene and its derivatives a plethora of original characteristics. Among other characteristics, graphene demonstrates bacteriostatic and bactericidal effects that could potentially resolve the problem of graft infection in the future. Data already exist in literature supporting this antibacterial effect of graphene oxide and reduced graphene oxide...

Several risk factors including short or highly angulated proximal aortic neck have been associated with long-term outcomes after endovascular or open abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair. However, research data have emerged recently concerning the behavior of proximal aortic neck, and several authors have tried to evaluate this behavior after endovascular or open repair. Additionally, computed tomography angiography (CTA) remains the golden standard for detecting and observing the morphology of an AAA, both before and after treatment...

An 83-year-old male with multiple comorbidities presented with critical aortic stenosis and a saccular aortic arch aneurysm. Through a mini thoracotomy, a balloon expandable transcatheter aortic valve was delivered transapically. A thoracic stent graft was then delivered through the prosthetic valve and deployed in the arch, while a covered stent was deployed in the left common carotid artery. Three-year postoperative computed tomography showed a thrombosed arch aneurysm with decreased size. This case demonstrates the feasibility of using combined transapical transcatheter technologies to treat multicomponent disease in a high-risk patient during a single operation...

OBJECTIVES: Outcomes after endovascular repair (EVAR) of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (rAAAs) have been widely published. There is, however, controversy on the role of the use of aortouniiliac endoprosthesis (AUI) versus modular or unibody bifurcated endoprosthesis (MUB) for repair of rAAAs. We study and compare 30-day outcomes after use of AUI and MUB for all rAAAs focusing specifically on patients with instability. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients who underwent EVAR for rAAA (n = 425) using AUI (n = 55; 12...

Endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) has become established in the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms and shows potential benefits such as a low perioperative morbidity and a short hospitalization duration. The follow-up after EVAR primarily consists of lifelong postinterventional imaging of the aneurysm size in order to detect complications such as endoleaks or stent dislocation. Computed tomography angiography, an imaging modality that uses ionizing radiation and that relies on a contrast medium which is dependent on thyroid and renal function, is widely used for follow-up...

BACKGROUND: The reported 54 mm median intervention diameter for endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) in the Vascular Quality Initiative and European data from the Pharmaceutical Aneurysm Stabilisation Trial (PHAST) implies that in real life the majority of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repairs occur at diameters smaller than the consensus intervention threshold of 55 mm. This study explores the potential consequences of this practice. METHODS: The differences between real life AAA repair and consensus based intervention threshold were explored in reported data from vascular quality initiatives and PHAST...

We report the case of a patient who developed paraparesis 2 days after endovascular aneurysm repair for a right common iliac aneurysm. The patient had undergone thoracic endovascular aortic repair. The left subclavian artery was occluded, but the left internal iliac artery was preserved. The patient fully recovered from the paralysis within 3 months. This case illustrates the importance of collateral blood supply to the spinal cord from the lumbosacral region, especially when other sources are occluded.

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to examine the effect of moderate postoperative glycemic control in diabetic and non-diabetic patients undergoing infrainguinal bypass (INFRA) or open abdominal aortic aneurysm (OAAA) repair. METHODS: In a single center prospective study, we investigated postoperative glycemic control using a standardized insulin infusion protocol after elective INFRA (n=53, 62%) and OAAA (n=33, 38%) between January 2013 and March 2015. The primary endpoint was optimal glycemic control, defined as having ≥85% of blood glucose values within the 80-150mg/dL target range...

BACKGROUND: Up to 40% of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) have coexistent iliac artery aneurysms (IAAs). In the past, successful endovascular repair required internal iliac artery (IIA) embolization, which can lead to pelvic or buttock ischemia. This study describes a technique that uses a readily available solution with a minimally altered off-the-shelf bifurcated graft in the IAA to maintain IIA perfusion. METHODS: From August 2009 to May 2015, 14 patients with AAAs and coexisting IAAs underwent repair with a bifurcated-bifurcated approach...
