PURPOSE To review the clinical features and management of spontaneous iliac dissections. CASE REPORT A healthy 60-year-old competitive cyclist presented with acute onset of short-distance claudication following vigorous exercise. Angiography showed a dissection flap extending from the right common iliac artery to the external iliac artery. An uncovered(More)
PURPOSE To describe the results, complications, and follow-up data after stent placement for occlusive internal carotid arterial disease and to compare the results with those in the literature. MATERIALS AND METHODS Carotid arterial stent placement was attempted in 57 arteries in 53 patients. Thirty-six (68%) of 53 patients were symptomatic. Forty-two(More)
OBJECTIVE to address the clinical problem of inadequate neck length of abdominal aortic aneurysms in endoluminal surgery. DESIGN a covered suprarenal aortic stent was designed with a fenestration to preserve blood flow in a targeted renal artery. METHOD AND MATERIAL a Dacron-covered stent was accurately cut to size with a fenestration according to(More)
PURPOSE To describe a technique combining endoluminal and open approaches for the repair of thoracoabdominal aneurysms involving the celiac axis. CASE REPORT Two patients with type I thoracoabdominal aneurysm and suboptimal cardiac reserve underwent transluminal stent-graft implantation. To achieve satisfactory distal seal, the caudal end of the endograft(More)
Endoluminal grafting for abdominal aortic aneurysm based upon Dacron-coated Z stents was commenced in March 1993. A modular system for treatment of infrarenal aorto-iliac aneurysmal disease was developed in 1994. The experimental model, method of delivery, graft construction and initial results were reported. Since 1994, 108 bifurcated HLB (Perth)(More)
PURPOSE To report a collateral pathway involving the deep circumflex iliac artery causing a type II endoleak following endoluminal exclusion of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). CASE REPORT A 75-year-old man was investigated for a persistent type II endoleak 2 years after endovascular AAA repair with a Zenith Trifab stent-graft. Angiography revealed(More)
PURPOSE To report the successful endovascular occlusion of a persistent endoleak owing to collateral perfusion in a 1-year-old bifurcated aortic endograft. METHODS AND RESULTS An 81-year-old man underwent endovascular repair of a 5.5-cm abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) with a bifurcated stent-graft in 1995; collateral perfusion of the excluded aneurysm by(More)
OBJECTIVES to evaluate the results of our early experience with a percutaneous closure device for aortic aneurysm repair and to identify device related and patient related factors leading to procedure failure. METHODS eighty-two percutaneous closures in forty-four patients was performed using the 10F Prostar XL Percutaneous Vascular Surgery device during(More)
