BACKGROUND: Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) are a vascular condition with significant risk attached, particularly if they rupture. It is, therefore, critical to identify and repair these as an elective procedure before they rupture and require emergency surgery. Repair has traditionally been an open surgical technique that required a large incision across the abdomen. Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repairs (EVARs) are now a common alternative. In this procedure, the common femoral artery is exposed via a cut-down approach and a graft introduced to the aneurysm in this way...

Patients with Marfan syndrome and presenting with acute aortic dissection have fragile aorta, causing bleeding problems in the anastomosis between the graft and the aorta. Hemostatic impairment following circulatory arrest and prolonged cardiopulmonary bypass contribute to these problems. We describe a technique to control persistent bleeding from the anastomosis in the aortopulmonary recess using two kissing inflated balloons at the tip of two Foley catheters to tamponade the bleeding sites.

Open surgery remains the standard procedure for treatment of aortic arch pathologies. However, total endovascular repair can be a safe option for patients who are poor candidates for surgery because of compromised physiology. We report the case of a 63-year-old man with a post-dissection aortic arch aneurysm. We repaired the aneurysm using thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) and used the chimney technique to reconstruct the supra-aortic branches. The patient is doing well after 12-month follow-up, demonstrating that TEVAR with the chimney technique can be used successfully for the treatment of post-dissection arch aneurysm...

OBJECTIVE: Hypogastric artery embolization (HAE) is associated with significant risk of ischemic complications. We assessed the impact of HAE on 30-day outcomes of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms. METHODS: We queried the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database from 2011 to 2014 to identify and to compare clinical features, operative details, and 30-day outcomes of EVAR with those of concomitant HAE with EVAR (HAE + EVAR)...

OBJECTIVE: Perioperative cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drainage is a well-established technique for spinal cord protection during thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) open repair and is usually performed using dripping chamber-based systems. A new automated device for controlled and continuous CSF drainage, designed to maintain CSF pressure around the desired set values, thus avoiding unnecessary drainage, is currently available. The aim of our study was to determine whether the use of the new LiquoGuard automated device (Möller Medical GmbH, Fulda, Germany) during TAAA open repair was safe and effective in maintaining the desired CSF pressure values and whether the incidence of complications was reduced compared with a standard catheter connected to a dripping chamber...

OBJECTIVE: Long-term data regarding the safety and durability of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) are limited. The study objective was to evaluate the long-term outcomes of TEVAR in high-risk patients with descending thoracic aortic pathology. METHODS: High-risk patients were treated with thoracic endografts (2001-2011) under a prospective, physician-sponsored, investigational device exemption trial. Three-dimensional reconstructions and measurements were performed on computed tomography scans acquired before discharge, at 1, 6, and 12 months, and then yearly thereafter...

OBJECTIVE: The fenestrated Anaconda endograft (Vascutek/Terumo, Inchinnan, UK) is intended for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms with an insufficient infrarenal landing zone. The endografts are custom-made with use of high-resolution, 1-mm-slice computed tomography angiography images. For every case, a nonsterile prototype and a three-dimensional (3D) model of the patient's aorta are constructed to allow the engineers as well as the physician to test-implant the device and to review the fit of the graft...

BACKGROUND: Octogenarians with complex abdominal aortic aneurysms are at higher risk of death and morbidity after open repair. Fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (FEVAR) is an alternative to open repair for high-risk patients, such as octogenarians. The aim of this study was to evaluate perioperative and midterm outcomes of FEVAR among octogenarians at high and standard risk for open repair. METHODS: During a 2-year period, 85 patients (68 men [78%] and 17 women [22%]) underwent FEVAR using Zenith (Cook Medical, Bloomington, Ind) Fenestrated AAA Endovascular Grafts (70%), Zenith p-Branch (7%), and fenestrated custom-made devices (22%)...

BACKGROUND: Aortic arch disease is a challenging clinical problem, especially in high-risk patients, in whom open repair can have morbidity and mortality rates of 30% to 40% and 2% to 20%, respectively. Aortic arch chimney (AAC) stents used during thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) are a less invasive treatment strategy than open repair, but the current literature is inconclusive about the role of this technology. The focus of this analysis is on our experience with TEVAR and AAC stents...

BACKGROUND: Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is becoming the preferred treatment modality for patients with a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA). Although the survival advantage of EVAR over open aortic repair (OAR) has been shown in some studies, it is unclear whether this benefit extends to elderly patients. We sought to evaluate the outcomes of rAAA repair in octogenarians. METHODS: We reviewed the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP) data set (2005-2014) to identify patients older than 80 years who were treated with EVAR and OAR for rAAA...

BACKGROUND: The best management strategy for the left subclavian artery (LSA) in pathologic processes of the aorta requiring zone 2 thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) remains controversial. We compared LSA coverage with or without revascularization as well as the different means of LSA revascularization. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted of patients with any aortic diseases who underwent zone 2 TEVAR deployment from 2007 to 2014. Primary end points included 30-day stroke and 30-day spinal cord injury (SCI)...

BACKGROUND: Interventions for aortic aneurysm sac growth have been reported across multiple time points after endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). We report the long-term outcomes of patients after EVAR monitored with duplex ultrasound (DUS) imaging with respect to the need for and type of intervention after 5 years. METHODS: We report a series of patients who were monitored with DUS imaging for a minimum of 5 years after EVAR. DUS imaging was performed in an accredited noninvasive vascular laboratory, and computed tomography angiography was only performed for abnormal DUS findings...

OBJECTIVE: Immediate type I and type III endoleaks after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) could be persistent or temporary. Reintervention is necessary for persistent ones. Color-coded quantitative digital subtraction angiography (CQDSA) could provide a quantitative evaluation of the endoleak hemodynamics. We aimed to use CQDSA to quantify immediate type I and type III endoleaks after EVAR and to find a practical way to predict their outcomes. METHODS: Between January 2012 and December 2014, 485 consecutive patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms underwent EVAR at our institution...

BACKGROUND: As endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) continues to advance, eligibility of patients with anatomically complex abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) for EVAR is increasing. However, whether complex EVAR is associated with favorable outcome over conventional open repair and how outcomes compare with infrarenal EVAR remains unclear. This study examined perioperative outcomes of patients undergoing complex EVAR, focusing on differences with complex open repair and standard infrarenal EVAR...

Aortic diseases are a heterogeneous group of disorders, including atherothrombotic conditions like aortic atheroma, cholesterol embolization syndrome, aortic mural thrombus, thrombus within an aneurysm, and large vessel vasculitis. In this review, we provide a summary of the current evidence regarding atherothrombotic diseases of the aorta, focusing on therapeutic avenues. In patients with previous stroke, aortic arch atheroma is recognized as a strong predictor of recurrent atheroembolism, and antiplatelet therapy alone is still associated with a high (11...
