PURPOSE To report our early experience with endovascular repair of acute non-A-non-B aortic dissections using chimney grafts to preserve blood flow to a left common carotid artery (LCCA) located in the proximal landing zone. METHODS From June 2009 to May 2010, 8 patients (7 men; mean age 49 years, range 29-75) with acute non-A-non-B aortic dissection and(More)
BACKGROUND In this study, we sought to explore the efficacy of endovascular aortic repair combined with the chimney technique in the treatment of Stanford type B aortic dissection involving the aortic arch. METHODS Between June 2009 and June 2012, 41 consecutive patients were treated with chimney technique at our institute for aortic arch dissection with(More)
PURPOSE To report the outcome of intended celiac artery coverage during thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for type B aortic dissection with an intimal tear near the celiac artery (CA) orifice. METHODS Between 2007 and 2011, 13 patients (10 men; mean age 61.3 years, range 46-70) with type B aortic dissection underwent primary (n=9) or secondary(More)
PURPOSE To report the immediate and follow-up outcome of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) in highly selected patients with retrograde type A aortic dissection (RAAD) and an entry tear in the descending aorta. MATERIALS AND METHODS TEVAR was performed in 17 patients with RAAD and an entry tear in the descending aorta. None of the patients had(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of endovascular aortic repair plus chimney technique in the treatment of Stanford type B aortic dissection involving aortic arch. METHODS From June 2009 to March 2012, 32 patients of aortic arch dissection with primary entry tear next to the orifices of supra-aortic arteries were treated with chimney technique. Chimney(More)
For aged patients, the treatment of type A aortic dissection (TAAD) with the primary entry tear at the inner curve of the ascending aorta is a great challenge. Conventional surgical repair with cardiopulmonary bypass and deep hypothermic circulatory arrest is associated with high risk of mortality.[1] Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) with(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to summarize our initial experience using the double chimney technique to treat aortic arch diseases. METHODS From December 2009 to October 2016, 23 patients with aortic arch diseases, including 20 acute aortic dissections, 2 aortic arch aneurysms, and 1 type I endoleak after thoracic endovascular aortic repair(More)
PURPOSE To summarize a single-center experience using the single/double chimney technique in association with thoracic endovascular aortic repairs (TEVAR) for aortic arch pathologies. METHODS From November 2007 to March 2016, 122 patients (mean age 50.4±12.7 years, range 29-80; 92 men) with aortic arch pathologies underwent TEVAR combined with single(More)
