PURPOSE This study was undertaken to characterize the contemporary surgical treatment of pediatric renovascular hypertension. METHODS A retrospective analysis was conducted of the clinical data of 97 consecutive pediatric patients (39 girls, 58 boys), aged from 3 months to 17 years, who underwent operation at the University of Michigan from 1963 to 2006.(More)
OBJECTIVE Abdominal aortic coarctation is uncommon and often complicated with coexisting splanchnic and renal artery occlusive disease. This study was undertaken to define the clinical and anatomic characteristics of this entity, as well as the technical issues and outcomes of its operative treatment. METHODS Fifty-three patients, 34 males and 19 females,(More)
PURPOSE Salvage of thrombosed prosthetic dialysis shunts can be performed using surgical or endovascular techniques. A prospective randomized trial was designed to compare the efficacy of these two methods in restoring dialysis access function. METHODS One hundred fifteen patients with thrombosed dialysis shunts were randomized prospectively to surgical(More)
OBJECTIVE Cerebral embolisation constitutes the main source of complications during transfemoral carotid artery stenting (CAS) and is associated with a high incidence of silent brain infarction. The goal of this study is to evaluate the incidence of new ischaemic cerebral lesions following transcervical CAS with carotid flow reversal for neuroprotection. (More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to develop an aortic aneurysm (AA) model with a predictable tendency for rupture for the evaluation of the efficacy of endovascular prostheses in preventing rupture and their long-term outcome after implantation. METHODS An infrarenal AA measuring two to three times the diameter of the proximal aorta was created in 18(More)
Renal artery lesions associated with neurofibromatosis may involve stenosis and aneurysm formation at all levels of the renal artery to the intraparenchymal branches, and usually are associated with hypertension. A 13-year-old boy with type I neurofibromatosis and severe hypertension presented with multiple aneurysms and multiple stenotic lesions in the(More)
Mobile luminal thrombus of the descending thoracic aorta is an unusual finding in patients with peripheral embolization. The diagnosis is best made with transesophageal echography (TEE). Traditionally, systemic anticoagulation and selective surgical thrombectomy are standard treatment. We present a case report of recurrent mobile thrombus despite surgical(More)
BACKGROUND Hybrid visceral-renal debranching procedures with endovascular repair have recently been proposed as a less invasive alternative to conventional thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) surgery. This study provides a concurrent assessment of hybrid and open TAAA repair. METHODS One hundred two consecutive patients (mean age, 63.0 years)(More)
OBJECTIVE Renal dysfunction following endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) remains a significant source of morbidity and mortality. We studied the use of carbon dioxide (CO(2)) as a non-nephrotoxic contrast agent for EVAR. METHODS Recorded data from 114 consecutive patients who underwent EVAR with CO(2) as the contrast agent over 44 months(More)
BACKGROUND Transfemoral carotid artery stenting (CAS) has been associated with a high incidence of embolic phenomena and silent brain infarction. The goal of this study was to compare the incidence of new ischemic cerebral lesions on diffusion-perfusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences after transcervical CAS performed with carotid flow reversal(More)
