BACKGROUND Vascular prosthetic graft infection is a severe complication after open aortic aneurysm repair. Reports of infected endografts are scarce. General treatment consensus with infected graft material is that it should be removed completely. The objective of this study was to describe the incidence of endograft infection after endovascular repair of(More)
PURPOSE To show the feasibility of the Nellix device in conjunction with a chimney technique for treating juxtarenal aneurysms in two patients who were deemed unsuitable for fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair or open surgery. CASE REPORTS Two men aged 83 and 81 years were referred with a juxtarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (66 and 69 mm,(More)
Endovascular aneurysm sealing (EVAS) using the Nellix system is a new and different method of abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. Normal postoperative imaging has unique appearances that change with time; complications also have different and specific appearances. This consensus document on the imaging findings after Nellix EVAS is based on the collective(More)
Vascular prosthetic graft infection is a rare but serious complication after aortic graft replacement, with high morbidity and mortality rates. Therefore, adequate diagnostics are needed to detect and treat these infections as early as possible. Several imaging modalities provide different diagnostic values for detecting prosthetic graft infection. Previous(More)
OBJECTIVE Varicose vein recurrence of the great saphenous vein (GSV) is a common, costly, and complex problem. The aim of the study was to assess feasibility of endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) in recurrent varicose veins of the GSV and to compare this technique with conventional surgical reintervention. METHODS Case files of all patients treated for GSV(More)
The development of endovascular repair of true popliteal aneurysms has provided an alternative, minimal invasive way of treatment. We present a case of successful emergency endovascular repair of a symptomatic popliteal pseudoaneurysm and percutaneous drainage of the haematoma. An 80-year-old patient with cardiac co-morbidity presented with a symptomatic(More)
BACKGROUND Superficial temporal artery (STA) aneurysms are an uncommon entity and mostly described in case studies. The purpose of this review was to show the studied clinical presentation, diagnostic modalities, and treatment modalities of STA aneurysms. METHODS A review was performed of reports on STA aneurysms published until December 2010, using the(More)
Infections of abdominal aortic endografts are rare. There are no reports on the association with spondylodiscitis. We report a case of a 74-year-old man who underwent endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) and subsequently femorofemoral bypass placement due to occlusion of the right limb of the endograft. Six months later, he presented with rectal bleeding,(More)
OBJECTIVE Despite improvements in endograft devices, operator technique, and patient selection, endovascular repair has not achieved the long-term durability of open surgical aneurysm repair. Persistent or recurrent aneurysm sac flow from failed proximal sealing, component failure, or branch vessel flow underpins a significant rate of reintervention after(More)
OBJECTIVE Thermal ablative techniques of varicose veins carry a risk of heat-related complications, including postoperative pain. Mechanochemical endovenous ablation (MOCA) might avoid these complications and reduce postoperative pain because of the absence of thermal energy. This study evaluated postoperative pain and quality of life after radiofrequency(More)
