OBJECTIVE Endograft limb occlusion is an infrequent but serious complication of endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair. The insertion of additional stents within the endograft limb may prevent future occlusion. This study evaluates limb patency with and without adjunctive stenting of endograft limbs at the time of endovascular AAA repair. METHODS We performed a retrospective review of 248 patients who underwent endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair with the Zenith AAA… CONTINUE READING
