Novel technique of selective stent deployment in complicated thoracic aortic aneurysm.

Novel technique of selective stent deployment in complicated thoracic aortic aneurysm. Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent). 2017 Jul;30(3):298-300 Authors: Young A, Kastner L, Vasquez J Abstract A 72-year-old woman presented with a thoracic aortic aneurysm that was found to have increased from 5.1 cm to 7.1 cm. Due to the increase in size, the aortic aneurysm required endovascular repair. After deployment of a GORE C-TAG stent graft, a distal type 1 endoleak was still present, requiring deployment of another stent to achieve total coverage. The aorta had an angled anatomical variation often associated with type 1 endoleaks causing technical difficulty with conventional deployment of the graft. By employing a novel Parachute technique, the graft was selectively deployed at the distal end, and the position was adjusted to fit the angulation of the aorta, followed by selective deployment of the proximal end. This selective deployment allowed for the adjustment necessary to effectively cover the endoleak. PMID: 28670062 [PubMed - in process]

We report a case of a 92-year-old man who came to the neurologist outpatient department due to left buttock pain and numbness that radiated to the left lower leg in the recent 6 months and progressed rapidly over 10 days. Diagnosis: We arranged magnetic resonance imaging for lumbar nerve lesion. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a common iliac artery mycotic aneurysm, at about 6.3 cm in diameter, which compressed the psoas muscle, nerve plexus, and vein. Interventions: We used a left-side iliac bifurcation stent graft of 12 mm in diameter for aneurysm repair. An internal iliac artery with a stent graft of 10 mm...

Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) is preferred to open surgical repair (OSR) for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) in high-risk patients. We sought to compare perioperative and long-term outcomes for EVAR in patients designated as unfit for OSR using a large national dataset.

Recent data suggests that infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) endovascular repair (EVAR) with large diameter grafts may have a higher risk of endoleak and reintervention. However, this has not been studied for fenestrated EVAR (FEVAR). We therefore sought to evaluate the outcomes of patients undergoing FEVAR with large-diameter endografts.

Semin intervent Radiol 2020; 37: 356-364 DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1715882Endovascular aneurysmal repair (EVAR) has become a prominent modality for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm. Surveillance imaging is important for the detection of device-related complications, which include endoleak, structural abnormalities, and infection. Currently used modalities include ultrasound, X-ray, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and angiography. Understanding the advantages and drawbacks of each modality, as well available guidelines, can guide selection of the appropriate technique for individual patients. We review ...

Semin intervent Radiol 2020; 37: 377-381 DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1715867Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a disease of the elderly which may result in aneurysm rupture if not treated in a timely manner. The incidence of AAA has increased in part due to patient and physician education, ultrasound screening, and liberal use of computed tomography imaging in conjunction with an aging population. Endovascular aneurysm repair has become the preferred treatment for surgeons and interventionalists. When endografts are placed outside of device-specific instructions for use, the risk of endoleak development is significantly increased....
