PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare the outcome of consecutive patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) treated concurrently by open operation and endoluminal intervention by the same surgeons during a defined interval. METHODS Between May 1992 and May 1996, 362 consecutive patients with AAA underwent repair. Fifty-three patients who(More)
UNLABELLED Technetium-99m-labeled anti-fibrin DD-3B6/22 Fab' monoclonal antibody fragments, which specifically target human cross-linked fibrin with high affinity, were evaluated in humans for safety and their capacity to detect deep vein thrombi and pulmonary embolism. METHODS Twenty patients with proven deep-vein thrombosis, documented by contrast(More)
PURPOSE To present and analyze several cases that illustrate persistent sac pressurization following endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair. METHODS AND RESULTS Four patients with successful endovascular AAA exclusion presented in follow-up with an expanding aneurysm. Two had initial sac diameter decrease, but by 18 and 24 months,(More)
PURPOSE To assess retrospectively the added value of coronal reformations from isotropic voxels obtained with 16-section multi-detector row computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen and pelvis in patients with suspected acute appendicitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was approved by the institutional review board, and informed consent was waived. One(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to review our experience of popliteal aneurysms using endovascular techniques. METHODS Thirty popliteal aneurysms in 25 patients were treated over an 11-year period. Median aneurysm diameter was 26 (16-48) mm. Five were symptomatic and 25 asymptomatic. Patients were treated with the Haemobahn/Viabahn stent-graft(More)
AIM the aim of this study was to analyse the effect of supplementary endovascular intervention on the outcome of primary endoluminal repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). METHODS between May 1992 and December 1998, 266 patients underwent endoluminal repair of AAA. Minimum period of follow-up was 6 months. Those patients in whom the endoprosthesis(More)
A 78-year-old man was seen with an expanding 5 cm false aneurysm of the right subclavian artery. This was treated by an intraluminal graft-stent device introduced through the brachial artery via a 16 F sheath. The graft was constructed from two polytetrafluoroethylene patches of 0.4 mm thickness and anchored in the subclavian artery by an 8 mm stainless(More)
PURPOSE To report a > 3-year experience with a modular, balloon-expandable endovascular graft used for aneurysm exclusion in the aorta and other arteries. METHODS The customized White-Yu Endovascular GAD Graft, a woven polyester prosthesis with an intrinsic Elgiloy wire graft attachment system along the body of the graft, is a flexible endograft design(More)
PURPOSE The role of arterial stenting in the treatment of femoral and popliteal arterial disease is controversial and has been hampered by recommendations for patients to be given anticoagulants (oral warfarin) for several months or more. This study was undertaken to evaluate the immediate and midterm outcomes of vascular stents implanted percutaneously in(More)
