PURPOSE To report the diagnostic value of computed tomographic (CT) virtual intravascular endoscopy (VIE) in the assessment of patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) treated with fenestrated endovascular grafts. METHODS Eight patients (7 men; mean age 76 years, range 70-82) with AAAs unsuitable for open surgery or conventional endovascular repair(More)
Type II endoleak is defined as persistent blood flow and pressure within an aneurysmal sac after endovascular deployment of a stent graft from patent aortic branches. This paper describes the simultaneous deployment of an endoluminal graft, with limited extraperitoneal dissection of a collateral vessel and use of an ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer, Onyx,(More)
PURPOSE To describe a 7-year experience with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair using fenestrated Zenith endovascular endografts. METHODS Six endovascular surgeons from 7 medical centers in Perth, Western Australia, contributed data to this retrospective study of 58 AAA patients (51 men; mean age 75.5+/-8.5 years, range 60-94) treated with fenestrated(More)
