Transcatheter arterial embolization for impending rupture of an isolated internal iliac artery aneurysm complicated with disseminated intravascular coagulation. (1/1212)

A 90-year-old male, with impending rupture of an isolated internal iliac artery aneurysm (IIAA) complicated with disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) was successfully treated with transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE). After TAE, enlargement of the aneurysm was arrested and coagulation-fibrinolytic abnormalities induced by DIC improved without severe complications. Although IIAA is relatively rare, the post-operative mortality of patients with ruptures is reportedly high. We assessed the usefulness of this procedure for impending rupture of IIAA, especially for patients in high risk groups.  (+info)

Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery: natural history and normal pregnancies. (2/1212)

Two female patients are described with anomalous origin of the left coronary artery arising from the pulmonary artery who sustained an anterolateral myocardial infarction in infancy. Neither patient received surgical treatment although both have lived to middle age with minimal cardiovascular problems and have had uncomplicated pregnancies. Good exercise tolerance and long term survival may be possible even without surgery for patients with this anomaly.  (+info)

Intimal tear without hematoma: an important variant of aortic dissection that can elude current imaging techniques. (3/1212)

BACKGROUND: The modern imaging techniques of transesophageal echocardiography, CT, and MRI are reported to have up to 100% sensitivity in detecting the classic class of aortic dissection; however, anecdotal reports of patient deaths from a missed diagnosis of subtle classes of variants are increasingly being noted. METHODS AND RESULTS: In a series of 181 consecutive patients who had ascending or aortic arch repairs, 9 patients (5%) had subtle aortic dissection not diagnosed preoperatively. All preoperative studies in patients with missed aortic dissection were reviewed in detail. All 9 patients (2 with Marfan syndrome, 1 with Takayasu's disease) with undiagnosed aortic dissection had undergone >/=3 imaging techniques, with the finding of ascending aortic dilatation (4.7 to 9 cm) in all 9 and significant aortic valve regurgitation in 7. In 6 patients, an eccentric ascending aortic bulge was present but not diagnostic of aortic dissection on aortography. At operation, aortic dissection tears were limited in extent and involved the intima without extensive undermining of the intima or an intimal "flap." Eight had composite valve grafts inserted, and all survived. Of the larger series of 181 patients, 98% (179 of 181) were 30-day survivors. CONCLUSIONS: In patients with suspected aortic dissection not proven by modern noninvasive imaging techniques, further study should be performed, including multiple views of the ascending aorta by aortography. If patients have an ascending aneurysm, particularly if eccentric on aortography and associated with aortic valve regurgitation, an urgent surgical repair should be considered, with excellent results expected.  (+info)

Follow-up results of transvenous occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus with the buttoned device. (4/1212)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this presentation is to document results of buttoned device (BD) occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in a large number of patients with particular emphasis on long-term follow-up in an attempt to provide evidence for feasibility, safety and effectiveness of this method of PDA closure. BACKGROUND: Immediate and short-term results of BD occlusion of PDA have been documented in a limited number of children. METHODS: During a six-year period ending August 1996, transcatheter BD closure of PDA was attempted in 284 patients, ages 0.3 to 92 years (median 7) under a protocol approved by the local institutional review boards and FDA with an investigational device exemption in U.S. cases. RESULTS: The PDAs measured 1 to 15 mm (median 4) at the narrowest diameter; 20 were larger than 8 mm and 10 larger than 10 mm. They were occluded with devices measuring from 15 to 35 mm delivered via 7F (N = 140) or 8F (N = 144) sheaths. Successful implantation of the device was accomplished in 278 (98%) of 284 patients. The Qp:Qs decreased from 1.8+/-0.6 (mean+/-SD) to 1.09+/-0.19 (p < 0.001). Effective occlusion defined as no (N = 167 [60%]) or trivial (N = 79 [28%]) residual shunt was achieved in 246 (88%) patients. All types of PDAs, irrespective of the shape (conical, tubular or short), size (small or large) or length (short or long) of the PDA and previously implanted Rashkind devices, could be occluded. Follow-up data, 1 to 60 months (median 24) after device implantation, were available in 234 (84%) patients. Seven (3%) patients required reintervention to treat residual shunt with (N = 2) or without (N = 5) hemolysis. Actuarial reintervention-free rates were 95% at 1 and 5 years. There was gradual reduction of actuarial residual shunts and were 40%, 28%, 21%, 14%, 11%, 10%, 6% and 0% respectively at 1 day, 1, 6, 12, 24, 36, 48 and 60 months after device implantation. Incorporation of folding plug over the button loop in 10 additional patients produced immediate and complete occlusion of PDA. CONCLUSIONS: This large multiinstitutional experience confirms the feasibility, safety and effectiveness of buttoned device closure of PDAs. All types of PDAs irrespective of the shape, length and diameter can be effectively occluded. Incorporation of folding plug over the button loop produces complete PDA occlusion at the time of device implantation.  (+info)

The snare-assisted technique for transcatheter coil occlusion of moderate to large patent ductus arteriosus: immediate and intermediate results. (5/1212)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility, safety and efficacy of using a snare-assisted technique to coil occlude the moderate to large size patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). BACKGROUND: Transcatheter occlusion of small PDAs using Gianturco coils is safe and effective. However, in larger size PDAs and/or those with short PDA length, the procedure still carries risks of coil embolization, incomplete occlusion and failure to implant the coil. METHODS: From January 1994 to June 1997, the records of 104 consecutive snare-assisted coil occlusions of moderate to large PDAs (minimum diameter >2.0 mm) were reviewed. Immediate and intermediate outcomes including complete and partial occlusion, failure to implant and complications were analyzed with respect to ductal type and size. RESULTS: Patient age ranged from 0.1 to 70.1 years (median 3.3 years). Minimum PDA diameter ranged from 2.1 to 6.8 mm (mean 3.0 +/- 0.9 mm). Angiographic types were A-62, B-13, C-6, D-14 and E-9. Using the snare-assisted technique, coil placement was successful in 104/104 patients (100%), irrespective of size or angiographic type. Immediate complete closure was observed in 73/104 (70.2%) and was related to smaller PDA size, but not to angiographic type. Complete closure was documented in 102/104 (98.1%) at 2- to 16-month follow-up. Successful closure was unrelated to PDA size or type. Coil embolization to the pulmonary artery occurred in 3/104 (2.9%) patients and was not related to PDA size or type. The need for multiple coils was found in 28/104 patients (26.9%), and was related to larger PDA size, but not to angiographic type. CONCLUSIONS: The snare-assisted delivery technique allows successful occlusion of moderate to large PDAs up to 6.8 mm, irrespective of angiographic type. This technique permits improved control and accuracy of coil placement, and facilitates delivery of multiple coils.  (+info)

Surgical renal artery reconstruction without contrast arteriography: the role of clinical profiling and magnetic resonance angiography. (6/1212)

PURPOSE: Contrast arteriography is the accepted gold standard for diagnosis and treatment planning in patients with atherosclerotic renovascular disease (RVD). In this study, the results of a selective policy of surgical renal artery reconstruction (RAR) with magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) as the sole preoperative imaging modality are reviewed. METHODS: From May 1993 to May 1998, 25 patients underwent RAR after clinical evaluation, and aortic/renal MRA performed with a gadolinium-enhanced and 3-dimensional phase contrast technique. Clinical presentations suggested severe RVD in all patients and included poorly controlled hypertension (16 patients), hospitalization for hypertensive crises and/or acute pulmonary edema (13), and deterioration of renal function within one year of operation (15). Thirteen patients had associated aortic pathologic conditions (12 aneurysms, 1 aortoiliac occlusive disease), and eight of these patients also underwent noncontrast computed tomography scans. Significant renal dysfunction (serum creatinine level, >/=2.0 mg/dL) was present in all but 4 patients with 14 of 25 patients having extreme (creatinine level, >/=3.0 mg/dL) dysfunction. RESULTS: Hemodynamically significant RVD in the main renal artery was verified at operation in 37 of 38 reconstructed main renal arteries (24/25 patients). A single accessory renal artery was missed by MRA. RAR was comprehensive (bilateral or unilateral to a single-functioning kidney) in 21 of 25 patients and consisted of hepatorenal bypass graft (3 patients), combined aortic and RAR (13 patients), isolated transaortic endarterectomy (8 patients), and aortorenal bypass graft (1 patient). Early improvement in both hypertension control and/or renal function was noted in 21 of 25 patients without operative deaths or postoperative renal failure. Sustained favorable functional results at follow-up, ranging from 5 months to 4 years, were noted in 19 of 25 patients. CONCLUSION: MRA is an adequate preoperative imaging modality in selected patients before RAR. This strategy is best applied in circumstances where the clinical presentation suggests hemodynamically significant bilateral RVD and/or in patients at substantial risk of complications from contrast angiography.  (+info)

Periprosthetic leak and rupture after endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm: the significance of device design for long-term results. (7/1212)

We present a case of abdominal aortic aneurysm treated with an endovascular bifurcated aortic graft in which a periprosthetic leak caused by a tear in the polyester prosthesis appeared between 9 and 12 months after surgery. The tear appeared adjacent to a suture breakage that caused separation of two struts of the nitinol wire framework in the body of the stent graft. The leak was sealed with insertion of a new endovascular tube graft into the body of the bifurcation. Eight months later, the patient had a nonfatal rupture of the abdominal aortic aneurysm because detachment of the second limb from the bifurcation caused a new major periprosthetic leak. According to the manufacturer of this device, suture breakage with separation of metal components is commonly seen, but perforation of the polyester prosthesis caused by movement of the metal stent against the fabric has not been reported. It is likely that this occurred in our patient. Detachment of the second limb from the bifurcated stent, causing a rupture, has been described before. Increasing angulation and tortuosity of the stent graft, as a result of either remodeling of the sac or elongation of the stent, and reduced compliance to angulation after the stent-in-stent procedure might have contributed to the detachment in this case.  (+info)

Realistic expectations for patients with stent-graft treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms. Results of a European multicentre registry. (8/1212)

OBJECTIVE: the outcomes for patients after endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) are determined primarily by the endpoints of death and endoleaks, the latter representing continued risk of rupture. The data of a multicentre registry were analysed with regard to the early outcome of stent-graft procedures for AAA and the complications associated with this treatment. In addition, the results during follow-up were analysed by determining mortality and endoleak development as separate endpoints and as a combined endpoint defined as endoleak-free survival. SETTING: 38 European institutions of Vascular Surgery collaborating in a multicentre registry project. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 899 patients with AAA underwent between May 1994 and March 1998 elective endovascular repair (818 men and 81 women; mean age 69 years). 80 (8.9%) of the patients had medical conditions that excluded them from open repair. 818 (91%) of patients had a bifurcated device, 63 (7%) had a straight tube graft, and only 18 (2%) had an aorto-uni-iliac device. Clinical examination and contrast-enhanced computed tomography was performed at fixed follow-up intervals to assess increase or decrease of the maximum transverse diameter (MTD). Endoleaks observed at follow-up were discriminated into persistent endoleak and temporary endoleak. The latter is defined as single time observed endoleaks or with two or more negative imaging studies between observed endoleaks. Life-table analyses were used to calculate the rates of freedom-from-endoleak (no endoleak at any time), freedom-from-persistent endoleak (no persistent endoleak), patient survival, and persistent-endoleak-free-survival. RESULTS: the median follow-up of this patient series was 6.2 months. The ratio between observed and expected follow-up data was 82% for the overall follow-up period. However, at 18 months of follow-up this rate was only 45%. The number of patients followed during this period was sufficient to allow statistically meaningful assessment. The MTD in patients with temporary endoleaks demonstrated a significant decrease at 6 to 12 months compared to preoperative values (mean 57 and 53 respectively, p =0.004). In patients with persistent endoleaks there was no change between the preoperative and 6-month MTD (mean 57 and 60 mm respectively). At 6 and 18 months freedom-from-endoleak was 83% and 74% and freedom-from-persistent endoleak was 93% and 90%, respectively. The 18-month cumulative patient survival was 88% and the main outcome measure, the persistent endoleak-free-survival was 79%. CONCLUSIONS: the MTD decreases in patients with temporary endoleak, but not in patients with persistent endoleak. Therefore, the use of the rate of freedom-from-persistent endoleak, reflecting absence of persisting endoleaks to estimate the prognosis with regard to the AAA, is justified. Determining persistent endoleak-free survival appears a rational approach to provide a realistic outlook for patients with stent-grafted AAA. The observed 18-month endoleak-free survival reflects a satisfactory mid-term result.  (+info)

Aneurysms of the aortic arch extending beyond the origin of the left subclavian artery represent a challenging pathology in aortic surgery and, most commonly, are treated with different surgical, endovascular or hybrid two-staged procedures. In 2006, we initiated an intense surgical program with the frozen elephant trunk procedure that, combining together conventional surgery with endovascular techniques, allows single-stage treatment of patients with extended disease of the thoracic aorta. We here describe our surgical technique and the results with the single-stage frozen elephant trunk procedure. Methods. Between January 2007 and August 2010, 87 patients were treated with the frozen elephant ...

Pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta is a rare but potentially lethal complication arising after interventions involving surgical manipulation of the aorta. The classic therapeutic management strategy consists of high-risk surgical reintervention. In recent years, percutaneous treatment has emerged as an alternative to surgery. Here, we present a case of successful repair of an aortic pseudoaneurysm by percutaneous intervention.. An 81-year-old woman presented with persistent chest pain 3 weeks after surgical replacement of the aortic valve. Thoracic computed tomography revealed a pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta measuring 40×27 mm, with a narrow neck connected to the anterior face of the aorta (Ao) above the level of the pulmonary artery (PA) and the left main coronary artery (LMCA) (Figures 1A and B). The case was discussed in a medical-surgical session, and a decision was made to perform percutaneous closure of the pseudoaneurysm. An aortogram showed a rounded cavity connected to the ...

The CX Aortic Edited Cases session yesterday provided the unique opportunity for the audience to interact with experts and ask questions about the cases being presented. The first session focused on thoracic aortic cases and the remainder were abdominal aortic cases.. Michael Dake (Stanford, USA) presented a case with the TAG thoracic branch endoprosthesis (Gore) which is part of a US feasibility multicentre trial that has evaluated 22 patients (mean age 74.1±10.5 years, 54.5% male) undergoing branched thoracic endovascular aortic repair (B-TEVAR) in Ishimaru zone 2.. According to Dake, the endograft features a single side branch designed to facilitate aortic coverage proximal to the left subclavian artery, while maintaining branch vessel patency. Pathology treated included fusiform (n=10) or saccular (n=12) aneurysm, with a mean aortic diameter of 5.7±1.1cm.. Reporting on the progress of the trial, he said that the primary endpoints of device delivery and branch vessel patency was achieved in ...
An improved stent design and stent delivery catheter assembly for repairing a main vessel and a side branch vessel forming a bifurcation. The stent includes rings aligned along a common longitudinal axis and connected by links, where the stent has one or more portals for aligning with and partially expanding into the opening to the side branch vessel. The stent is implanted at a bifurcation so that the main stent section is in the main vessel, and the portal section covers at least a portion of the opening to the side branch vessel. A second stent can be implanted in the side branch vessel and abut the expanded central section to provide full coverage of the bifurcated area in the main vessel and the side branch vessel. Radiopaque markers on the stent and on the tip of the delivery catheter assist in aligning the portal section with the opening to the side branch vessel.
The catheter assembly includes an expandable member mounted to the distal end of a placement catheter, for delivery of a therapeutic device in one of the branch vessels of a bifurcated vessel. The catheter assembly includes lumens for a tracking guide wire and a positioning guide member for placement of the therapeutic device. The therapeutic device is mounted on the expandable member, the tracking guide wire is placed into the target branch vessel, and the placement catheter is then introduced over the tracking guide wire. A positioning guide member is introduced through the catheter, extended through an exit port in the catheter proximal to the expandable member, and then placed in another branch vessel of the bifurcation. The placement catheter then is advanced until the positioning guide member engages the vessel carina between the branch vessels, and the therapeutic device then may be placed accurately in the target branch vessel. In another form of the catheter assembly, a secondary catheter

I think I have a vague memory of this from several years ago but this was an opportunity to properly look into it.. Most of this comes from a generally poor understanding of aortic diseases. I know Ive got myself in a muddle before with thoracic aortic aneurysms and thoracic aortic dissections and occasionally confabulating with the dissecting thoracic aneurysm…. Traumatic aortic injury is somewhat similar with most folk (including myself apparently) labelling it simply as an aortic dissection when in fact it probably isnt.. Where do you see these injuries:. ...
Aortic dissection, though rare, is an often fatal event.1 A recent population-based study from Oxford showed that women have higher mortality from aortic dissection and are more likely to die before hospital assessment,2 which was also shown by the worlds largest registry of aortic dissection.3 Importantly, most individuals with aortic dissection had inadequately controlled hypertension, suggesting that modifiable risk factors may play a role in prevention.2 Moreover, women have worse outcomes following surgery for aortic dissection,3 and the surgical risk is even higher during pregnancy.4 ,5 The majority of aortic dissections in women of childbearing age occur during pregnancy and have adverse consequences for the mother and the fetus.6 Data from the Swedish National Birth Registry in women ,40 years of age have shown that pregnancy is associated with a 25-fold increased risk of aortic dissection.6 The scientific literature regarding aortic dissection and pregnancy is largely made up of case ...

Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is the intervention of choice to treat abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA).1 In comparison to open surgical repair, EVAR confers a reduction of mortality lasting into the short to intermediate term.2 However, EVAR is associated with complications which sometimes require secondary interventions in order to maintain efficacy of EVAR. This has been recognised since the inception of the technique and confirmed in observational studies as well as randomised controlled trials.3-6 Therefore, periodic surveillance imaging is recommended for life following EVAR.7 8 The importance of post-EVAR surveillance remains enduring, its value further highlighted by a recently published analysis of 15-year follow-up after EVAR.2 The most common complication in EVAR surveillance is an endoleak,9 which is persistent blood flow within the aneurysm sac but outside the stent graft.10 Endoleaks are classified based on the source of blood flow,10 but can be grouped into stent graft ...
Greenhalgh spoke to the audience about innovations and challenges to innovation in collecting data. He presented insights from the European Vascular and Endovascular Monitor, a consumption-based monitor covering 200 centres from Western Europe. He said that the advantage of a monitor approach was that it was enduring and effective in rapidly-shifting markets.. From the thoracic market, data showed that thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair remains the gold standard and that the current issues in the thoracic field were the size of the aneurysm, and the perceived need for a screening programme. For carotid procedures, Greenhalgh said the data indicated open surgery as the gold standard and that endovascular procedures were focused in the German and Italian markets.. Endovascular procedures continue to grow at the expense of open surgery, Greenhalgh commented on aortic-iliac procedures and femoropopliteal, with the use of drug-eluting balloons on the increase in the latter.
