Systematic review of chimney and periscope grafts for endovascular aneurysm repair
TLDR
The modified application of conventional EVAR devices using adjuvant chimney or periscope grafts is described as a pragmatic alternative to custom‐made fenestrated and branched endografts. Expand
Predictors of Outcome After Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Rupture: Edinburgh Ruptured Aneurysm Score
TLDR
These three risk factors are easily assessed in the emergency setting and might form the basis of a scoring system to inform the outcome of ruptured AAA. Expand
Fenestrated aortic endografts for juxtarenal aortic aneurysm: medium term outcomes.
TLDR
Fenestrated aortic endografts can be utilized safely in the management of juxtarenal AAA in patients at high-risk for open surgery, however, the rate of graft related complication and reintervention is high at medium term follow up. Expand
Patterns and Clinical Outcomes Associated with Routine Intravenous Sodium and Fluid Administration after Colorectal Resection
TLDR
Because colonic resection poses less of a physiologic insult than rectal resection, the overall outcome in the former group may be more sensitive to the interplay between fluid and sodium overload and patient co-morbidity. Expand
Outcome of Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy in Patients 80 Years and Older
TLDR
LC can be performed safely with low morbidity in patients over age 80 years, and one patient, with gangrenous cholecystitis, died after LC. Expand
Prognostic scoring in ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm: a prospective evaluation.
TLDR
Prospective validation shows that the Hardman Index, GAS, and V-PossUM and RAAA-POSSUM scores do not perform well as predictors for death after ruptured AAA and the ERAS accurately stratifies perioperative risk but requires further validation. Expand
Outcome and Survival of Patients Aged 65 Years and Younger after Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Rupture
TLDR
Patients ≤ 65 years of age undergoing operative repair of ruptured AAA have no survival advantage over older patients, and data support AAA screening for the “at risk” and age-defined population. Expand
Ruptured inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm: insights in clinical management and outcome.
TLDR
Rptured inflammatory AAA is associated with a higher incidence of aortic fistula than is ruptured noninflammatory AAA, and Repair of ruptured inflammatory AAAs is not associated with increased operative mortality compared with repair of rupturing noninflammatory AAAs. Expand
Cardiac troponin I predicts outcome after ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm repair
TLDR
The relationship between perioperative cTnI levels and clinical outcome in patients with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is examined. Expand
