OBJECTIVE Endovascular treatment of thoracic aortic disease may be associated with severe neurologic complications. The current study used the data of a multicenter registry to assess of the incidence and the risk factors for paraplegia or paraparesis and intracranial stroke. METHODS The European Collaborators on Stent/Graft Techniques for Aortic Aneurysm(More)
BACKGROUND Preoperative renal dysfunction is a significant risk factor for death after open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. The aim of this study was to determine whether renal dysfunction also affected mortality after endovascular aneurysm repair. METHODS Patients from the EUROSTAR registry were stratified into two groups: 4198 with normal renal(More)
BACKGROUND Non-maturation is a frequent complication of radiocephalic arteriovenous fistulas (RCAVF). In an animal model, liposomal prednisolone improved maturation of experimental fistulas. The Liposomal Prednisolone to Improve Hemodialysis Fistula Maturation (LIPMAT) study investigates if liposomal prednisolone improves RCAVF maturation. METHODS AND(More)
To investigate the role of plasma catecholamines in diurnal blood pressure variation, invasive 24-h ambulatory blood pressure recordings (Oxford technique) were performed on 10 untreated patients; all had increased plasma concentrations of norepinephrine (mean 27.3; range 2.50 to 134.6 nmol/L) or epinephrine (mean 13.5; range 0.13 to 96.6 nmol/L) either(More)
Infected or mycotic aneurysms (MAs) of the aorta and adjacent arteries are rare and difficult to treat. We report a unique case of a Salmonella serotype enteritidis-induced rapidly expanding aortic and iliac pseudoaneurysm during preoperative workup. Based on the presented case, we postulate that the agressive nature of Salmonella enteritidis MAs should not(More)
OBJECTIVE Renal failure is a potential complication after thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) repair and is a significant risk factor for postoperative mortality. We assessed the results of distal aortic perfusion and continuous volume-controlled and pressure-controlled blood perfusion of the kidneys during TAAA repair in patients with preoperative(More)
BACKGROUND Clinically evident renal disease (dialysis, history of renal insufficiency, or serum creatinine >2.0 mg/dL) is a known risk factor for mortality after thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair. We extended this concept to the questions of whether subclinical renal disease is also a risk factor and how best to identify subclinical disease. We(More)
