PURPOSE To present a cardiac asystole technique that assists in the accurate deployment of stent-grafts during endovascular repair of thoracic or abdominal aortic aneurysms. TECHNIQUE In the anesthetized patient, trial doses of intravenous adenosine are delivered until a > or = 20-second period of asystole is recorded. The endograft procedure then proceeds until the device is ready for deployment. The predetermined dose of adenosine is administered, and the device is deployed during asystole… CONTINUE READING
