PURPOSE To investigate the early and late outcome after endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm (EVAR) in octogenarians compared with patients aged < 80 years. METHODS Patients treated for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) with endovascular repair during the period 1996 to 2004 were collated in the EUROSTAR registry. This study group consisted(More)
The purpose of this article is to report whether combined open and endovascular treatment could be applied in patients with complex aortic disease. A retrospective study including four patients with complex aortic disease was undertaken. In all patients, extra-anatomic bypass to the visceral arteries was made through a laparotomy while the aortic lesion was(More)
BACKGROUND The aim was to investigate early and long-term results following AAA repair during a 20-year period. METHOD One thousand and forty one patients with AAA were treated with open surgery (905) or EVAR (136) during the period 1983-2002. Comorbidity and factors influencing early and long-term results were investigated. Data were collected(More)
PURPOSE To present an as yet unreported late complication of an Excluder thoracic endograft. CASE REPORT A 78-year-old man underwent surgery for a ruptured type V thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm in 1996. Four years later, an aneurysm was detected in the proximal thoracic aorta and repaired with 2 Excluder endoprostheses. At 12 months, computed tomography(More)
The goal of the present study was to investigate the number of operations for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) including time-trends in treatment during a 20-year period. Operating time and anesthesia time were also studied. During the period 1983–2002, a total of 1,041 patients with AAA were treated with open surgery (905) or EVAR (136). Number of(More)
Infections with Streptococcus equi zooepidemicus are rare and are associated with contact with animals or animal products. There are very few reports about infected vascular grafts or aneurysms with this etiology. We present two patients. The first is a 77-year-old man with an infected bifurcated graft four years after an open operation for an abdominal(More)
BACKGROUND Endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm was started nine years ago at our institution. Our purpose was to evaluate the results over this period. MATERIAL AND METHODS From 1995 to 2003, a total of 148 patients were treated for infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms by endovascular repair. The material includes 31 patients (21%) who were(More)
