OBJECTIVE The number of elderly patients undergoing emergency surgery for acute aortic dissection type A (AADA) is rising. Published results report a higher risk for these patients compared with younger patients. The aim of our study was to analyse the surgical outcome of these patients and to identify those at risk. METHODS Between July 2006 and June(More)
OBJECTIVES To review the incidence, clinical presentation, definite management and 1-year outcome in patients with aorto-oesophageal fistulation (AOF) following thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). METHODS International multicentre registry (European Registry of Endovascular Aortic Repair Complications) between 2001 and 2011 with a total caseload(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass is associated with mechanical manipulation of the ascending aorta that occasionally leads to type A aortic dissection (AAD). METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred three patients with surgical repair for AAD following nonaortic cardiac surgery were identified. With the use of logistic regression modeling,(More)
OBJECTIVE Our objective was to determine long-term outcome predictors for patients with acute aortic dissection type A (AADA) and aortic root involvement. METHODS From 2001 through 2009, 119 of 152 patients operated on for AADA at a tertiary medical center underwent supracoronary ascending aortic replacement (52 women; mean age, 61 ± 15 years). Those with(More)
PURPOSE To test the hypothesis that simultaneous closure of at least 2 independent vascular territories supplying the spinal cord and/or prolonged hypotension may be associated with symptomatic spinal cord ischemia (SCI) after thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). METHODS A pattern matching algorithm was used to develop a risk model for symptomatic(More)
OBJECTIVES Aortic dissection DeBakey type I and II may require distal reinterventions after initial proximal repair. We evaluated outcomes following open versus endovascular approaches to distal aortic pathologies after surgery for acute dissection. METHODS One hundred and forty-one consecutive patients underwent 152 distal reinterventions after previous(More)
OBJECTIVES Previous investigators have reported a grave prognosis for iatrogenic acute aortic dissection (iAADA), but such studies are limited by their small sample sizes. The purpose of the current study was to analyse the clinical characteristics, current management and surgical outcomes in a large number of iAADA patients identified through a multicentre(More)
BACKGROUND Data on outcomes of surgery for chronic Stanford type A aortic dissection are limited. We investigated the primary surgery and long-term results in patients with chronic dissection of the native ascending aorta. METHODS Between 1993 and 2013, among 696 patients (median age, 61 years [first quartile, 50; third quartile 73 years]; 64% males) who(More)
OBJECTIVES Aortic geometry changes throughout life are not well defined. This investigation delineates aortic geometry across the adult age spectrum and determines the gender-related influence of aging on aortic morphometry. METHODS Contrast-enhanced computed tomography scans of all aortic segments in 195 subjects (94 women, 101 men, average age 57 ± 20(More)
