THREE YEARS AGO, Pearse1 reported to the American Surgical Association that he had been successful in producing a gradual occlusion of the aorta in dogs. Wrapping the vessel with ordinary DuPont cellophane had led to a fibrosis which had eventually closed it off by its contraction. The ability of cellophane to produce this type of tissue reaction was used by Page2 in the production of perinephritis with persistent hypertension. We ourselves have had occasion to study this fibrosis in… Expand

TLDR
Nine patients whose intrathoracic aneurysms have been wrapped or patched with polythene are reported, with four of the patients still alive, the others having succumbed to their disease. Expand
Failure of polyethylene wrapping in treatment of aortic aneurysms.
TLDR
The use of cellophane or polyethylene wrapping has gained considerable popularity in recent years, owing probably to its relative ease and safety of application, but Clinically its efficacy has not been well established and has actually been questioned. Expand
SURGICAL TREATMENT OF ARTERIOSCLEROTIC ANEURYSMS OF THE ABDOMINAL AORTA
TLDR
Little attention has been paid to the cystic medial necrosis of Erdheim, a lesion which consists of patches of muscle necrosis or cysts filled with mucoid material, which may be found even far away. Expand
A Brief History of Aortic Pathology and Surgery
TLDR
A growing body of clinical observations and speculations about the mechanisms of disease eventually led to treatments using foreign material such as needles, wires, and electric current, aiming at stimulating inflammation and clotting to prevent rupture of the aneurysmatic lesion. Expand
Twenty-seven Cases of Syphilitic Aneurysm of the Thoracic Aorta and its Branches
TLDR
The purpose of this paper is to review the treatment of aortic aneurysms and to discuss a series of 27 cases, one of which is especially serious; out of 219 patients, one half died under 10 months and only a quarter lived more than 20 months. Expand
The history of surgery of the thoracic aorta.
TLDR
Until the late 19th century, treatment of thoracic aortic aneurysms relied on ligation of the parent vessel or introduction of foreign materials to promote coagulation or fibrosis, but during the past 15 years, the treatment goal has reverted to endoaneurysmorrhaphy, involving the use of a suitable graft to restore aortsic continuity.

Recent advances in vascular surgery; a review of the literature.
TLDR
Blakemore, Lord and Stefko, in their search for a nonsuture technic, modified the old Payr magnesium rings used for vascular anastomosis by the preparation of a vein graft with the ends of the vessel everted over vitallium tubes. Expand

TLDR
An increasing number of aortic repairs are being achieved with endovascular methods, which offer new hope to patients at high risk for traditional aortIC surgery. Expand
The Importance of Fibrin Sealing in the Development of Surgical Treatment of Aneurysms of the Aortic Root
The history of surgical treatment of aortic aneurysms demonstrates, on the one hand, that therapeutic concepts have been experimentally developed long before they could be realized clinically, and,Expand

TLDR
Treatment of aortic aneurysms has changed, however, from the early emphasis on excising the lesion to the present practice of restoring circulatory continuity with a suitable graft, ie, endoaneurysmorrhaphy. Expand

THE PRODUCTION OF PERSISTENT ARTERIAL HYPERTENSION BY CELLOPHANE PERINEPHRITIS
TLDR
During the course of experiments designed to prevent the development of renal cortical collateral circulation, cellophane was tried because it was believed that it would cause little damage to the tissues, but it was soon apparent that arterial hypertension had developed in the animals in whichcellophane had been wrapped around the kidneys.
