OBJECTIVE To analyze early and mid-term outcome of endovascular treatment in patients with iliac aneurysms, comparing the results of hypogastric revascularization by branch endografting with those of hypogastric occlusion. METHODS Consecutive patients with iliac aneurysms receiving side branch endograft (Group I) were compared with those receiving(More)
OBJECTIVE Long-term results of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) endovascular repair are affected by graft design renewals that tend to improve the performance of older generation prostheses but usually reset the follow-up times to zero. The present study investigated the long-term outcomes of endovascular AAA repair (EVAR) using the Zenith graft, still in(More)
OBJECTIVE We compared the effectiveness and clinical outcome of open repair versus endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) in achieving prevention of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA)-related death and graft-related complications. METHODS Over 7 years from 1997 to 2003, 1119 consecutive patients underwent elective treatment of infrarenal AAAs, 585 with(More)
