OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to determine whether type II endoleak (T2E) after endovascular repair of abdominal aorta (EVAR) is a benign condition (ie, not associated with growth, reintervention, rupture, or death). METHODS Data from patients who underwent EVAR for atherosclerotic infrarenal aortic aneurysms between June 1995 and May 2010 in the(More)
OBJECTIVE Hybrid interventions combining debranching of supra-aortic branch vessels with stent grafting of the aortic arch have become an attractive alternative to open repair for aortic arch pathologies. However, results in patients with dissections of the aortic arch remain unclear. We present our experience with hybrid aortic arch repair for acute and(More)
BACKGROUND Knowledge in the aetiopathogeny of aortic disease helps to characterise aortic lesions better and determine the risk of evolution and therapeutic strategies as well. This article focusses on aneurysms and dissections, and excludes causes related to infection, systemic inflammatory diseases and trauma. METHODS AND RESULTS The biomedical(More)
INTRODUCTION We reviewed our experience with limb occlusion after EVAR in order (1) to assess the clinical pattern and treatment options (2) to assess outcomes and (3) to identify predictive factors of occurrence. MATERIALS AND METHOD Between 1995 and 2005, 460 AAA patients were electively treated with a variety of commercially available stent grafts.(More)
OBJECTIVE This study compared early-term and midterm results of endovascular repair (EVAR) of juxtarenal or pararenal aortic aneurysms (PAAs) using fenestrated stent grafting (f-EVAR) and the chimney grafting (c-EVAR) technique. METHODS Consecutive patients with PAAs who underwent f-EVAR using commercially available devices and c-EVAR in a tertiary(More)
INTRODUCTION Splanchnic and renal artery aneurysms (SRAAs) are uncommon but potentially life-threatening in case of rupture. Whether these aneurysms are best treated by open repair or endovascular intervention is unknown. The aim of this retrospective study is to report the results of open and endovascular repairs in two European institutions over a(More)
OBJECTIVE(S) Patient-specific simulated rehearsal (PsR) is a technological advance within the domain of endovascular virtual reality (VR) simulation. It allows incorporation of patient-specific computed tomography Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (CT DICOM) data into the simulation and subsequent rehearsal of real patient cases. This study(More)
BACKGROUND The benefits of endovascular repair of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm remain controversial, without any strong evidence about advantages in specific subgroups. METHODS An individual-patient data meta-analysis of three recent randomized trials of endovascular versus open repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm was conducted according to a(More)
BACKGROUND Proximal aortic control by endovascular balloon occlusion (EBO) is an alternative to conventional aortic cross-clamping (CAC) in hemodynamically unstable patients presenting with a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA). The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential clinical benefit of EBO over CAC. METHODS Data from 72 patients with(More)
PURPOSE This study aims to evaluate the medium-term outcomes following aortic aneurysm repair using fenestrated endografts performed in 16 French academic centres. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data was carried out. This study included all patients treated with fenestrated endografts in France between May 2004(More)
