BACKGROUND Nitric oxide (NO) is an important mediator in the pathophysiology of many vascular diseases. However, the definite role of NO in human abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) formation is unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate production of NO and expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), and their possible role in AAA. METHODS A(More)
BACKGROUND Endovascular stent-grafting is widely used to treat thoracic aortic dissection. However, little information is available regarding outcome following simultaneous exclusion of multiple tears. This report details eight years of experience using simultaneous multi-tear exclusion for treatment of Stanford type B thoracic aortic dissection resulting(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of the diameter of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) on endovascular exclusion (EVE) and its results. METHODS From March 1997 to June 2007, 429 AAA patients were treated with endovascular stent-graft exclusion. According to the maximal diameter of abdominal aortic aneurysm, the patients were divided into two groups: group A(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the technical feasibility of juxtarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair with fenestrated endovascular stent-graft METHODS A 64-year-old male was diagnosed with juxtarenal AAA with severe coronary artery stenosis, fenestrations was customized according to precise helical CT data to accommodate visceral and renal arteries.
