Outcomes of the Gore Excluder abdominal aortic aneurysm leg endoprosthesis for treatment of central vein stenosis or occlusion in patients with chronic hemodialysis
ConclusionsTreatment of central vein obstructions in hemodialysis patients with stent grafts has been appealing owing to the tapered shape with a larger diameter and the availability of various lengths.
Condition: Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Intervention: Sponsor: University Hospital, Bordeaux Recruiting
Discussion. In situ replacement is the preferred method of treatment as it had lower rates of occlusion. Further strong evidence is required, such as a multicentre trial to establish a management pathway for the condition. PMID: 32206352 [PubMed]
Preserving internal iliac flow is the key to preventing ischemic complications during endovascular aneurysm repair. The aim of this study was to determine the morphological features of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) that have been reported in clinical trials in Chinese patients to identify unique features of iliac branched systems.
This study aimed to analyse the mean abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) diameter for repair in nine countries, and to determine variation in mean AAA diameter for elective AAA repair and its relationship to rupture AAA repair rates and aneurysm related mortality in corresponding populations.
The first four Clinical Research articles in this month's issue of Annals of Vascular Surgery (all from European and South American centers) involve a topic well known to vascular surgeons, ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA). Each offers a unique insight into contemporary management of this pathology from high-volume, respected centers of excellence. Of particular interest to me is the Chilean experience reported by Marine, et al., as it is a reflection of the skill of that center's vascular team and the realities of the Chilean healthcare system.
Aim of present study was to evaluate early-, mid-, and long-term outcome in an unselected population of patients treated for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) by endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) with different commercially available off-the-shelf devices.
The present study evaluates aneurysmal sac remodeling and the loss of intercostal arteries after the first step of staged treatment of thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAA). The purpose of this approach is to keep the aneurysmal sac temporarily perfused in order to induce progressive thrombosis of the aneurysm while simultaneously allowing the spinal cord to establish adequate perfusion thereby promoting the development of collateral circulation.
Endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) is associated with the risk of late complications and mandates follow up. This retrospective study assessed post-EVAR complications in a two centre cohort. The study evaluated the rate of complications presenting with symptoms vs. those detected by imaging follow up. Additionally, the agreement between DUS and CTA in detecting complications was assessed in patients with both.
This study investigated the impact of clamp location on peri-operative outcomes using a United States based nationwide clinical registry.
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.
