A novel endovascular approach useful in the treatment of aneurysms, particularly saccular aneurysms. The present endovascular prosthesis comprises a leaf portion capable of being urged against and blocking the opening of the aneurysm thereby leading to obliteration of the aneurysm. The leaf portion is attached to, and independently moveable with respect to, a body comprising at least one expandable portion. Thus, the body serves the general purpose of fixing the endovascular prosthesis in place at a target body passageway in the vicinity at which the aneurysm is located and the leaf portion serves the purpose of blocking the aneurysmal opening thereby leading to obliteration of the aneurysm. A method of delivering and implanting the endovascular prosthesis is also described.

Process for forming a multilayer blood vessel prosthesis. Each layer is formed from bioreplaceable materials which include those produced by contacting collagen with an aminopolysaccharide and subsequently covalently crosslinking the resulting polymer, polymers of hydroxyacetic acid and the like. Cross flow filtration molding and wet extrusion molding are two processes which are particularly useful for forming the inner layer of the blood vessel prosthesis. The outer layer of the blood vessel prosthesis is preferably formed by freeze drying a dispersion of the bioreplaceable material onto the inner layer(s). The disclosed blood vessel prosthesis is a multilayer structure with each layer having a porosity and other physicochemical and mechanical characteristics selected to maximize the effectiveness of the blood vessel. The prosthesis functions initially as a thromboresistant conduit with mechanical properties which match those of the adjacent natural blood vessel. Eventually, the prosthesis

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for 29% of all global deaths and is set to rise to 23 million deaths a year by 2030 (World Health Organisation, 2012). Arterial bypassing, both peripheral and coronary, is usually performed with autologously harvested vessels. However, the quantity available is often very limited as well as the vessels of elderly patients often suffering from thrombus, aneurysm formation or arthrosclerosis in high pressure arterial sites. The shortcomings of autografts has led to a substantial amount of research being directed towards tissue engineered vascular grafts (TEVGs) (Kakisis et al., 2005). Currently available artificial grafts for small diameter vasculature (mm) suffer from poor patency rates due to thrombosis, aneurysm formation, and a compliance mismatch, which often stems from the inherent properties of synthetic polymers. The primary goal of the research presented in this thesis was to develop a small diameter tissue engineered

The failure of synthetic vascular grafts due to de-endothelialization of the lumen as a result of exposure to fluid-induced shear stress prevents the widespread use of such grafts as small-diameter vessel replacements. Physical surface modification, an approach that seeks to alter the topography of the luminal surface, has been investigated as a method of reducing de-endothelialization under physiological stresses. Based on prior experimental evidence supporting this approach, computation fluid dynamics was used to investigate the impact of selected channel geometry parameters (wall angle, channel width, depth, and radius of curvature) on fluid flow and the resulting wall shear stress. Optimization of these parameters was performed in order to determine if micro-topographical modification of the lumen wall could alter fluid flow in a manner such that favorable conditions for both endothelial cell retention and stimulation are produced. It was found that a 50% decrease in the wall angle, width, ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Expanded polytetrafluoroethylene graft fistula for chronic hemodialysis. AU - Tellis, V. A.. AU - Kohlberg, W. I.. AU - Bhat, D. J.. AU - Driscoll, B.. AU - Veith, F. J.. PY - 1979. Y1 - 1979. N2 - In a retrospective study of 66 polytetrafluoroethylene arteriovenous fistulae (PTFE) and 71 bovine carotid heterograft arteriovenous fistulae (BCH) for dialysis access, PTFE had a higher patency rate than BCH at 12 months (62.4 versus 32.5%). PTFE was easier to work with and easier to handle in the face of infection. The lateral upper arm approach to placement of the PTFE graft is desirable in patients who have had multiple previous access procedures because this area is usually free from scarring, is distant from neurovascular structures, and provides a greater length of graft for needle punctures..

Introduction: Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) has been an established treatment for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Although statin use has been shown associated with better long-term survival following open AAA surgery, its impact on EVAR has not been systematically explored.. Methods: We retrospectively analyzed a multicenter database of 368 consecutive patients (age, 76 ± 8 years; 84% male) undergoing EVAR for AAA between November 2006 and December 2013. The outcome measure was overall survival following EVAR. Independent predictor associated with the outcome was assessed by Cox proportional hazard regression model. Furthermore, the association between the statin use and the outcome was assessed.. Results: During the follow-up of 30 ± 20 months, 38 patients died from cardiovascular disease (33%), cancer (23%) or infection (23%). Survival rate was 96% and 81% at 1 and 5 years, respectively. In Cox regression analysis, statin use (in 213 AAA patients, 58%) was negatively associated with ...
This is the first article to our knowledge to report the use of biophysical forces to attach endothelial cells to the surface of prosthetic vascular grafts. EOCs readily endocytose paramagnetic particles and are rapidly attracted to magnetized graft surfaces. Once seeded, these cells remain attached at shear forces comparable to those seen in the circulation. A porcine study provided proof of concept and demonstrated the presence of a large number of seeded cells after 24 hours of pulsatile blood flow.. Vascular grafts based on either expanded polytetrafluoroethylene or polyethylene terephthalate fiber (Dacron) work very well when positioned in vessels with diameters ,6 mm and in conditions of high flow. However, the majority of vascular disease occurs in vessels with caliber of ,6 mm. Coronary bypass grafting is commonly performed with arterial conduits (when available), and with autologous saphenous vein grafts. However, up to 30% of the patients do not have veins suitable for vascular ...

September 28, 2017-The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a letter to health care providers advising that the agency is evaluating recent information regarding type IIIa and IIIb endoleaks with the use of endovascular graft systems indicated for endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) procedures. The letter, addressed to vascular and cardiothoracic surgeons, radiologists, and cardiologists, stated that an increase in the occurrence of type III endoleaks has been suggested by several sources, including the FDAs Medical Device Reporting system and the Annual Clinical Updates to Physicians by the manufacturers. This increase is compared with earlier clinical update reports in patients with various device models and implant duration lengths, including some patients who had previously stable repairs.. The purpose of the FDAs letter is to bring this potential complication to the attention of health care providers and to remind and encourage them to report type IIIa and IIIb endoleak events ...
Fenestrated and branched endovascular aortic repair (F/B-EVAR) is associated with a high degree of technical and clinical success. Despite this, studies have also reported high reintervention rates, and these are often related to the bridging stent grafts. Often new devices appear on the market before they have been tested in the bridging stent graft position. This review aims to assess the current literature on bridging stent grafts and discuss complications, illustrated by case reports. Complications reported with bridging stent grafts include; endoleak, kink, fracture, migration, occlusion, stenosis and perforation. Some known risk factors for bridging stent occlusions are renal artery stent grafts vs. SMA and celiac artery stent grafts. Some device specific complications have also been reported such as type IIIc endoleak with the Lifestream stent graft (Bard Peripheral Vascular, Tempe, AZ, USA) fractures and type IIId endoleaks with the 1st generation of Begraft (BentleyInnoMed, Hechingen, ...
Background: Bypass graft thrombosis remains a significant mode of failure in prosthetic graft revascularization. The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the long-term thromboresistant effect of heparin-bonded expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) graft using Carmeda BioActive Surface technology in a canine model. Methods: Bilateral femorofemoral artery bypass grafts with ePTFE grafts were performed in 25 adult grayhound dogs. In each animal, a heparin-bonded ePTFE graft (Propaten, WL Gore) was placed on one side, whereas a control nonheparin graft was placed on the contralateral side. The graft patency was assessed at 1, 6, 12, 18, and 24 months (n = 5 per group) following the bypass. Heparin bioactivity of the graft material was analyzed. The effect of intimal hyperplasia was also assessed. Results: All bypass grafts were patent at 1 month. Significantly greater patency rates were noted in the Propaten group compared to the control group at 12, 18, and 24 months, which were 84%, ...
Infections of the aorta remain one of the most dreaded complications in reconstructive vascular surgery. The purposes of this study were to evaluate the efficacy of a cryopreserved aortic allograft to treat an established vascular graft infection by the surgical in situ replacement of the infected segment in an animal model, and to investigate the role of antibiotics to decontaminate the allograft during the cryopreservation process. Furthermore, the tissue concentrations of the antibiotic and the kinetics of desorption were investigated in in vitro experiments. A model of prosthetic graft infection by Staphylococcus epidermidis RP-62 (inserted in the infrarenal aorta) in dogs was developed. By in situ replacement of the infected prosthetic graft with a cryopreserved aortic allograft, this study demonstrated an intrinsic resistance to infection of cryopreserved aortic allografts. However, antibiotic loading of the cryopreserved aortic allografts appeared to be essential to obtain optimal ...

The Endurant II AAA stent graft (Medtronic) is a stent-graft composed with highly elastic nitinol stents with a high-density polyester fiber. Nitinol is an alloy of titanium and nickel and has been shown to have several advantages which include greater resistance to crushing forces as well as lower bending stress when placed within tortuous vessels (which is sometimes the case with aortic aneurysms).. Nitinol is also safe with use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The Endurant stent graft system is often employed in challenging endovascular repairs (e.g. close proximity of the aneurysm to the renal arteries or tortuous aorta). Even while including results from difficult repairs, studies have shown that success and complication rates are comparable to other stent grafts. ...

A vascular graft comprised of a tubular polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) sheet is provided. The ePTFE sheet has a substantially uniform coating of bioresorbable gel material, for example gelatin, on a surface thereof. The coating minimises bleeding through suture holes in the ePTFE sheet and provides an increase in longitudinal extensibility.
Despite medical achievements, the number of patients with end-stage kidney disease keeps steadily raising, thereby entailing a high number of surgical and interventional procedures to establish and maintain arteriovenous vascular access for hemodialysis. Due to vascular disease, aneurysms or infection, the preferred access-an autogenous arteriovenous fistula-is not always available and appropriate. Moreover, when replacing small diameter blood vessels, synthetic vascular grafts possess well-known disadvantages. A continuous multilayered gradient electrospinning was used to produce vascular grafts made of collagen type I nanofibers on luminal and adventitial graft side, and poly-ɛ-caprolactone as medial layer. Therefore, a custom-made electrospinner with robust environmental control was developed. The morphology of electrospun grafts was characterized by scanning electron microscopy and measurement of mechanical properties. Human microvascular endothelial cells were cultured in the graft under ...

Porous expanded polytetrafluoroethylene material having a microstructure of nodes interconnected by fibrils wherein a surface of the material has been modified to have increased hydrophobicity as indicated by having a water droplet roll-off angle of less than about 10 degrees in comparison to a typical roll-off angle of greater than about 12 degrees for the unmodified material. Under magnification, the surface morphology may be indistinguishable from that of the unmodified precursor material. The modification is preferably done by exposing the surface to radio frequency gas plasma discharge with a reactive etching gas for a lengthy amount of time such as about ten minutes. If surface etching is continued beyond a time adequate to produce the highly hydrophobic behavior, then the surface morphology includes the appearance of broken fibrils. Still further treatment results in complete removal of fibrils from the surface so that under magnification the surface has the appearance of freestanding node

The treatment of thoracic aortic TSXN with endografts presents several technical challenges. The most important is the lack of a dedicated device for these patients. All commercially available aortic endografts, especially those for use in the thoracic aorta, were designed for treatment of aneurysms and dissections. These pathologies usually occur in older individuals with intrinsic arterial disease and larger diameter aortas. The smallest commercially available thoracic aortic endograft, the Gore TAG device (W.L. Gore & Associates, Flagstaff, AZ) is 26 mm diameter, and is not recommended for use in aortas less than 23 mm in diameter [12]. One concern with excessive endograft oversizing is in-folding of the graft material that prevents an adequate seal against the aortic intima. Of greater concern, graft collapse has been reported when this device is used in aortas smaller than 23 mm diameter to treat an aortic TSXN [2,6]. The mechanism of graft collapse is unclear but this complication has also ...
Can you please tell us also about the most challenging aortic aneurysm case you managed to treat with a total endovascular solution?. A young 34-year-old mother of two children comes to mind. She had open surgery for coarctation of the abdominal aorta at the age of 18. She developed proximal and distal anastomotic aneurysms of Dacron graft from the proximal descending to the infrarenal aorta involving a reimplanted single left kidney. We performed embolisation of the residual descending aortic lumen to avoid endoleak, implanted a tapered thoracic stent graft percutaneously and, four weeks later, staged a custom-made device for the abdominal segment preserving the renal artery using fusion navigation in very short landing zones. Avoiding re-thoracotomy and laparotomy, working percutaneously and discharging this young patient after three days is so persuasive that "endo", even out of instructions for use and without knowing long-term results, is a huge benefit for many patients, both elderly and ...
