PURPOSE We sought to analyze the clinical and morphologic outcomes of bifurcated stent grafts in patients with ruptured aortoiliac aneurysms at midterm follow-up. METHODS Thirty-seven patients (4 women; mean age, 73 years; mean abdominal aortic aneurysm [AAA] diameter, 77 mm) underwent endovascular abdominal aneurysm repair between June 1997 and July 2003(More)
Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of ruptured thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms may be compromised or even impossible due to short proximal and/or distal necks or landing zones, respectively. Supra-aortic branches may limit the proximal anchorage and visceral or renal arteries the distal anchorage of endografts. While solutions have been proposed to(More)
PURPOSE To present a technique for renal and visceral revascularization allowing complete endovascular treatment of a ruptured type IV thoracoabdominal aneurysm using devices already stocked in most centers performing endovascular aneurysm repair. TECHNIQUE Open arterial access is obtained to both common femoral arteries and the left subclavian artery(More)
OBJECTIVE To present the combined 14-year experience of 2 university centers performing endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) on 100% of noninfected ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (RAAA) over the last 32 months. BACKGROUND Endovascular aneurysm repair for RAAA feasibility is reported to be 20% to 50%, and EVAR for RAAA has been reported to have better(More)
BACKGROUND Case and single center reports have documented the feasibility and suggested the effectiveness of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (RAAAs), but the role and value of such treatment remain controversial. OBJECTIVE To clarify these we examined a collected experience with use of EVAR for RAAA treatment(More)
BACKGROUND To present the clinical experience of consecutive series with use of balloon-expandable and self-expanding chimney endografts (balloon-expandable covered stent group [BECS] vs self-expanding covered stent group [SECS]) in the endovascular treatment of challenging aortic pathologies requiring renal and/or visceral revascularization. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate a single center's 10-year experience with emergency endovascular aneurysm repair (eEVAR) in 102 patients with ruptured abdominal aortoiliac aneurysms (RAAA). METHODS Data from 102 patients (mean age, 73 +/- 9 years) with RAAA treated by eEVAR from January 1998 to April 2008 were retrospectively reviewed. From January 2000, all(More)
OBJECTIVE To present the first long-term results of Szilagyi III vascular infections treated by negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) with graft preservation. BACKGROUND DATA Szilagyi III infections are usually treated by graft/artery excision and secondary vascular/plastic reconstruction. Small series treated with NPWT without graft removal are reported(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the performance of periscope and/or chimney grafts (CPGs) in the endovascular treatment of pararenal or thoracoabdominal aneurysms using off-the-shelf devices. METHODS Between February 2002 and August 2012, 77 consecutive patients (62 men; mean age 73±9 years) suffering from pararenal aortic (n=55), thoracoabdominal (n=16), or arch to(More)
PURPOSE To present the 24-month radiological follow-up data for patients with pararenal aortic pathologies treated with chimney and periscope grafts during endovascular repair. METHODS Between January 2008 and December 2011, 124 high-risk patients with complex pararenal aortic pathologies were treated using the chimney technique at 2 European vascular and(More)
