OBJECTIVE We describe our initial experience with the use of the TriVascular Ovation endograft system for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). METHODS We retrospectively reviewed data from patients treated for AAA using the Ovation endograft at two institutions from January 2011 to September 2012. Main outcomes included primary success,(More)
INTRODUCTION This study aimed to evaluate long-term stabilizing healing effectiveness and influence on adjacent intact vertebral bodies of a new injectable partly resorbable calcium sulfate (60 wt.%)/hydroxyapatite (40 wt.%) bone substitute employed in vertebral augmentation of osteoporotic collapses. METHODS From April 2009 to April 2011, 80 patients(More)
AIM Brief case report of the treatment of a large axillary artery pseudoaneurysm after a pacemaker using a left brachial cutdown and a retrograde delivery of a covered stent using ultrasound and fluoroscopic guidance. The patient's renal function precluded the use of contrast materials. CASE REPORT A 77 years old man presenting with acute renal failure(More)
INTRODUCTION We compared the incidence of intraprocedural bradycardia and hypotension during carotid artery stenting in patients with primary carotid artery stenosis and those with prior ipsilateral carotid endarterectomy. METHODS A total of 213 carotid stenting procedures were performed in our institution in a 4-year period. The mean degree of stenosis(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study is to evaluate the long-term stabilizing-healing effectiveness and influence on adjacent intact vertebral bodies of a new injectable partly resorbable calcium sulfate (60 wt.%)/hydroxyapatite (40 wt.%) bone substitute employed in vertebral augmentation of osteoporotic collapses. METHODS From April 2009 to April 2011, 80(More)
BACKGROUND We report a case of delayed endovascular correction of graft collapse occurred after emergent Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair (TEVAR) for traumatic aortic isthmus rupture. CASE PRESENTATION In 7th post-operative day after emergent TEVAR for traumatic aortic isthmus rupture (Gore TAG® 28-150), a partial collapse of the endoprosthesis at the(More)
INTRODUCTION Aneurysmal degeneration of aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA) carries a relevant risk of rupture. Timely elective treatment is mandatory. Therapeutic options include open surgery repair or hybrid surgical and endovascular repair. Few reports of total endovascular approach repair have been reported. PRESENTATION OF THE CASE We report the(More)
OBJECTIVES Mycotic pseudoaneurysms of the extracranial internal carotid artery are rare, and their management often represents a challenge, but treatment is necessary due to the high risk of rupture and distal brain embolization. Systemic antibiotics associated with open surgical excision of the infected tissues and carotid reconstruction using autologous(More)
INTRODUCTION Low back pain is one of the most common causes of seeking medical attention in industrialized western countries. End plate degenerative changes in the acute phase, formally referred to as Modic type I, represent a specific cause. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of vertebral augmentation with calcium sulfate and(More)
BACKGROUND We describe our 8-year experience with the use of endovascular techniques (ET) for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) through a straight endograft. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed data of all patients who were treated for AAA using ET in two centres from 1998 to 2012 and who received a single straight endograft (group A) or a(More)
