Endovascular aneurysm repair at 5 years: Does aneurysm diameter predict outcome?
OBJECTIVE The appropriate size threshold for endovascular repair of small abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) is unclear. We studied the outcome of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) as a function ofExpand

How many patients with infrarenal aneurysms are candidates for endovascular repair? The Northern California experience.
PURPOSE To determine how many patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) meet the anatomical selection criteria for AneuRx stent-graft repair in community hospitals of Northern California. Expand

Intrasac flow velocities predict sealing of type II endoleaks after endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine whether intrasac spectral Doppler flow velocities can predict whether or not a type II endoleak will spontaneously seal and to relate intrasac flowExpand

The impact of aortic endografts on renal function.
OBJECTIVE To determine the impact on late postoperative renal function of suprarenal and infrarenal fixation of endografts used to treat infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). METHODSExpand

Coronary venular responses to flow and pressure.
In previous studies, we demonstrated that both endothelium-dependent flow-induced vasodilation and endothelium-independent myogenic responses occur in porcine coronary arterioles. However, it was notExpand

Thoracic endovascular repair (TEVAR) in the management of aortic arch pathology.
BACKGROUND Conventional repair of aortic arch pathology is associated with significant mortality and stroke rates of 6-20% and 12%, respectively. Because endografting has excellent results forExpand

Percutaneous access for endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair: can selection criteria be expanded?
Previous reports suggest that percutaneous access for endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (P-EVAR) is as safe as open access (O-EVAR) in patients with favorable femoral anatomy. SevereExpand

Current status of endovascular aneurysm repair: 20 years of learning.
Parodi first introduced endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) in 1991 and since that time it has been shown to have a lower 30-day morbididty and mortality compared to open surgery. AnatomicExpand

Type-II Endoleaks following Endovascular AAA Repair: Preoperative Predictors and Long-term Effects
Purpose: To determine the significance of persistent type-II endoleaks and whether they can be predicted preoperatively in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). Methods: The charts of allExpand

Endovascular repair reduces early and late morbidity compared to open surgery for abdominal aortic aneurysm.
PURPOSE To compare systemic complications between standard surgery and endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) for both primary and late secondary procedures. METHODS At a singleExpand
