A Reliable Protocol to Study the Morphology of the Abdominal Aorta in a Three-Dimensional Modality

Introduction - Reporting standards described by Chaikof in 20021 and by Boyle in 20112 highlighted the need for appropriate aortic morphology analysis to determine abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) suitability for endovascular repair (EVAR) and to predict outcomes. Moreover, instructions for use provided by manufacturers to help select patients for EVAR, are mainly based on specific anatomic criteria.

Authors: Borioni R, Guarnera G, Fratticci L, Tesori MC, Paciotti C, Cotticelli V, Garofalo M Abstract AIM: The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of aneurysm size on early outcome in women undergoing abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair, with suggestion of lowered threshold for intervention. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Retrospective cohort study on the early outcome of 25 females undergoing elective endovascular (EVAR) and open AAA repair, compared to 340 males from 2005 to 2017. The study was focused on 30-days mortality (primary endpoint) and incidence of non fatal major adverse events - MAE (seco...

CONCLUSIONS: EVAR in the elderly can be performed with a high rate of success; however, it is associated with a substantial rate of morbidity and mortality, particularly when patients present with multiple co-morbidities. When performing EVAR in this population group, the risk of rupture must be considered opposed to the life expectancy of these patients and the risk of perioperative morbidity and mortality.

DISCUSSION: A literature review of proper screening, referral timeframe, the most common surgical techniques, potential complications, and postoperative surveillance was conducted. Early detection, referral to vascular surgery, and possible open or endovascular repair are key to limiting the morbidity and mortality associated with AAA. PMID: 31926569 [PubMed - in process]

Females remain underrepresented in studies of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) owing to anatomic ineligibility for EVAR devices. The aim of the LUCY study is to explore the comparative safety and effectiveness of EVAR using a low-profile stent graft (Ovation; Endologix, Inc, Irvine, Calif) in females as well as males.

Repair of ruptured infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms (rAAA) has shifted from open surgical (OAR) to endovascular (EVAR) over the last decade. However, the long term impact of EVAR vs. OAR for rAAA has not been well described.

The aim was to assess peri-operative mortality of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) vs. open repair for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and to investigate whether outcomes have improved over the years and whether there is an association between institutional caseload and peri-operative mortality.

Abstract OBJECTIVES: The aim was to assess peri-operative mortality of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) vs. open repair for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and to investigate whether outcomes have improved over the years and whether there is an association between institutional caseload and peri-operative mortality. METHODS: Electronic information sources (MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL and CENTRAL) were searched up to August 2019. A systematic review was carried out according to PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses) guidelines using a registered protocol (CRD4201810...

Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) has become the procedure of choice for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). It has been previously reported that significant percentage of patients were being readmitted to another hospital following complications after EVAR. We aimed to evaluate trends and clinical predictors of readmission to another (secondary)hospital following index EVAR.
