Autopsy Study of Unoperated Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms: The Case for Early Resection
A review of 24,000 consecutive autopsies during a 23-year period from 1952 through 1975 at the Massachusetts General Hospital revealed 473 patients died with surgically intact arterioscleroticExpand
Establishing a protocol for endovascular treatment of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms: outcomes of a prospective analysis.
PURPOSE In our transition from elective abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) to emergent ruptured AAA (r-AAA) repair with endovascular techniques, we recognized that the availability of endovascularlyExpand
Factors associated with abdominal compartment syndrome complicating endovascular repair of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms.
BACKGROUND Endovascular treatment of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (r-AAAs) has the potential to offer improved outcomes. As our experience with endovascular repair of r-AAA evolved, weExpand
Aortocaval and iliac arteriovenous fistulas: recognition and treatment.
Despite the well characterized physiologic effects of aortocaval or iliac arteriovenous fistulas, patients with such uncommon lesions may manifest a diverse array of symptoms, and diagnosis is oftenExpand
Vascular complications associated with spontaneous aortic dissection.
Three hundred twenty-five cases of spontaneous aortic dissection seen at two institutions between 1965 and 1986 were reviewed to assess the incidence, morbid sequelae, and specific management ofExpand
Long-term outcomes of secondary procedures after endovascular aneurysm repair.
PURPOSE This study evaluated the outcomes of secondary procedures after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). METHODS From 2002 to 2009, 1768 patients underwent EVAR for treatment of 1662 electiveExpand
Endovascular repair of ruptured infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm is associated with lower 30-day mortality and better 5-year survival rates than open surgical repair.
OBJECTIVE Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) decreases 30-day mortality for patients with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (r-AAAs) compared with open surgical repair (OSR). However, whichExpand
Women derive less benefit from elective endovascular aneurysm repair than men.
BACKGROUND Women have a lower chance of surviving elective open abdominal aortic repair. The reasons for this are not clear. Endovascular repair has clearly reduced early and midterm morbidity andExpand
Strategies to improve spinal cord ischemia in endovascular thoracic aortic repair: Outcomes of a prospective cerebrospinal fluid drainage protocol.
PURPOSE Although endovascular repair of thoracic aortic aneurysm has been shown to reduce the morbidity and mortality rates, spinal cord ischemia remains a persistent problem. We evaluated ourExpand
Treatment options for delayed AAA rupture following endovascular repair.
PURPOSE Delayed abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) rupture is a well recognized complication of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). We wanted to evaluate the frequency, etiology, and outcomes ofExpand
