In patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) and complete iliac occlusion, endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) using a bifurcated stent graft has clear advantages over aortouniiliac stent grafts. Bifurcated stent grafts had improved hemodynamic flow and increased primary and secondary patency rates compared with aortouniiliac stent grafts. The use of aortouniiliac stent grafts with femorofemoral crossover bypass is associated with complications including infection of the prosthesis, steal phenomenon, and the associated difficulties for further endovascular access at the site of the femoral anastomosis...

BACKGROUND: The endovascular management of arterial injuries has resulted in reduced operating time, blood loss, hospital mortality, lower incidence of sepsis, and decrease in mortality rates. For penetrating trauma, however, the benefits of endovascular therapy are questionable. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Data were obtained by retrospective analysis of electronic medical records. All patients with vascular trauma seeking care at our institution from January 2010 to December 2015 were reviewed...

Introduction Endograft infection after EVAR (Endovascular aortic repair) or TEVAR (Thoracic endovascular aortic repair) is a rare but severe complication with high mortality. As the number of patients with endovascular aneurysm repair has increased over the last decade, the number of patients with endograft infection might also have increased. However, no guideline defines the treatment of endograft infection. Diagnosis is difficult and depends on clinical symptoms, radiological imaging and blood cultures. Surgery with graft excision, debridement and revascularisation should be proposed...

OBJECTIVES: Vascular injury is a rare complication of spinal instrumentation. Presentation can vary from immediate hemorrhage to pseudoaneurysm formation. In the literature, surgical approach to repair has varied based on anatomy, acuity of diagnosis, infection, and available technology. In this manuscript, we aim to describe our institutional experience with vascular injuries in thoraco-lumbar spine surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We report our institutional experience of three cases of vascular injury secondary to pedicle screw misplacement and their management, as well as a review of the literature...

BACKGROUND: Endovascular repair for mycotic aortic aneurysm (MAA) is a less invasive alternative to open surgery, although the placement of a stent graft in an infected environment remains controversial. In this study, we developed hybrid biodegradable, vancomycin-eluting, nanofiber-loaded endovascular prostheses and evaluated antibiotic release from the endovascular prostheses both in vitro and in vivo. METHODS: Poly(D,L)-lactide-co-glycolide and vancomycin were dissolved in 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoro-2-propanol...

Oesophageal foreign body is an emergency situation. Once oesophageal perforation occurs, damage and subsequent infection involving surrounding tissue or organs may ensue. We present here a rare case of aorto-oesophageal fistula which was treated with challenges. An old lady with fishbone induced oesophageal perforation, aortic pseudoaneurysm and mediastinal haematoma was treated with great vessel stent-graft placed in aortic arch, and the fish bone was removed under endoscopy thereafter. During the early follow-up period, part of the graft stent was discovered in the oesophageal perforation with no haemorrhage...

Mycotic aneurysm of the aorta is a rare, but life-threatening pathology. In recent years, endovascular stent graft placement has been introduced as an effective alternative for treating infected aortic aneurysms. A 64-year-old woman with a history of paraplegia due to spinal cord injury was referred to our institute with fever and blood-tinged sputum. Computed tomography (CT) scan showed an 11-cm pseudoaneurysm arising from the proximal descending aorta, which was normal 1 month ago at the previous CT scan...

A 73-year-old man underwent emergency endovascular abdominal aneurysm repair (EVAR) for a ruptured infected abdominal aortic aneurysm. Two years after EVAR, he was admitted with a spiking fever and left lower back pain. Computed tomography scan revealed not only recurrent graft infection with psoas abscess but also infection around the orifice of the superior mesenteric artery. Because conservative medical therapy with antibiotics could not control the infection, we performed complete removal of the infected stent graft, debridement of psoas abscess, and in situ replacement of the thoracoabdominal aorta using rifampicin-soaked prosthetic grafts, followed by the omental flap...

A 69-year-old man with sudden strong back pain was transported to our hospital by ambulance. The computed tomography scan revealed an intra-aortic floating mass with a stalk arising from the descending aortic wall, which was thought to be a thrombus. The floating mass displayed the characteristics of a thrombus rather than a neoplastic tumour on magnetic resonance imaging scan. Under extracorporeal circulation, the descending aorta was cut open, and the mass was resected. Subsequently, a stent graft was placed to cover the abnormal aortic intima to prevent recurrent thrombus formation...

Infection of a vascular prosthesis or endovascular stent-graft is probably the most serious complication that may occur after implantation and dramatically affects the patient's outcome. The most common etiology of graft and/or prosthetic valve infection is usually wound-related infection, followed by seeding from distant infection sites (lung, urinary tract). Surgical treatment is almost always required but even after surgery, morbidity can be significant. Operative procedure must be tailored according to the individual patient and to the experience of the surgical team...

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...

In the age of stent deployment after balloon angioplasty. In stent restenosis (ISR) has become a major concern. Various coronary interventional measures and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) has employed to manage the ISR. Although CABG seems to offer advantages over other coronary intervention methods in patients with multi vessel ISR; lack of appropriate graftable vessels often make the surgery difficult and end up with incomplete revascularization. Coronary endarterectomy with stent removal mitigated some of the limitations of CABG but initial results of this surgical measure were not favorable...

Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is a widely accepted and used technique for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). However, it comes with a unique set of complications, two of the rarer being infection and aorto-enteric fistula formation. Due to the infrequency of the situation, there are currently no guidelines for their management. A 75-year-old male presented with vague abdominal pain and fevers. He was diagnosed with an infected abdominal aortic EVAR stent graft on computer tomography imaging...

INTRODUCTION: A 75-year-old male patient with significant cardiopulmonary comorbidity presented with a 70-mm left femoral pseudoaneurysm 6 years after aortobifemoral bypass (and prior femoral endarterectomy). REPORT: As the left superficial femoral artery was occluded, an ilioprofunda endobypass was undertaken following extraperitoneal exposure of the left limb of the bypass graft with subsequent deployment of four Viabahn endoprostheses via the left limb into the proximal left deep femoral artery with successful exclusion of the pseudoaneurysm...

BACKGROUND: Tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) is a rare but life-threatening complication after esophagectomy. It has a high mortality rate and often leads to severe aspiration pneumonia. Various types of surgical repair procedures have been reported, but the optimal management of TEF is challenging and controversial. Treatment should be individualized to each patient. CASE PRESENTATION: A 66-year-old female underwent transthoracic esophagectomy with gastric tube reconstruction and an intrathoracic anastomosis for esophageal cancer...

The arteriovenous graft (AVG) is one of the major types of permanent vascular access used to provide hemodialysis. Complications encountered with AVG use include stenosis, infection, thrombosis, and pseudoaneurysm formation. Venous outflow stenosis along with frequent needle cannulation at the same site can lead to breakdown of the graft material, resulting in pseudoaneurysm formation. In the following case, we illustrate common management principles used to treat pseudoaneurysms. While stent-grafts have been utilized for pseudoaneurysm repair, stent-graft usage is not always optimal...

BACKGROUND: Subclavian and axillary artery injuries are uncommon. In addition to many open vascular repairs, endovascular techniques are used for definitive repair or vascular control of these anatomically challenging injuries. The aim of this study was to determine the relative roles of endovascular and open techniques in the management of subclavian and axillary artery injuries comparing hospital outcomes, and long-term limb viability. METHODS: A multicenter, retrospective review of patients with subclavian or axillary artery injuries from 1/1/2004-12/31/2014 was completed at 11 participating Western Trauma Association institutions...

BACKGROUND: Various conduits and stent-mounted valves are used as pulmonary valve graft tissues for right ventricular outflow tract reconstruction with good hemodynamic results. Valve replacement carries an increased risk of infective endocarditis (IE). Recent observations have increased awareness of the risk of IE after transcatheter implantation of a stent-mounted bovine jugular vein valve. This study focused on the susceptibility of graft tissue surfaces to bacterial adherence as a potential risk factor for subsequent IE...
