Abstract

To investigate whether endovascular stent-grafts implanted during the early phase of an aortic endografting program have advantages over conventional surgical procedures for treatment of infrarenal aortic aneurysm (AAA). In the first months of an endografting program, 37 patients (36 men; mean age 67.9 +/- 7.1 years, range 55 to 86) underwent AAA repair with endovascular implantation of a Vanguard (n = 17) or Talent (n = 20) bifurcated stent-graft. Data collected during the perioperative period and in follow-up were compared retrospectively to a matched group of 37 elective surgical patients. All endograft implantations were completed. Two type I and 6 type II endoleaks (21.6%) were seen postoperatively. Five type II sealed without intervention; 1 type I endoleak was corrected with an additional stent, but 1 type I and 1 type II endoleaks persisted despite attempts with coil embolization. Two (5.4%) endograft patients died during the perioperative period; however, this was not significantly different (p = 0.15) from the control group. In the mean follow-up of 12 +/- 6 months for both groups, 1 (2.7%) late conversion was necessary at 2 years for aneurysm expansion in an endograft patient with an unsealed type I endoleak. In our ...Continue Reading

Cajal Bodies & Gems

Cajal bodies or coiled bodies are dense foci of coilin protein. Gemini of Cajal bodies, or gems, are microscopically similar to Cajal bodies. It is believed that Cajal bodies play important roles in RNA processing while gems assist the Cajal bodies. Find the latest research on Cajal bodies and gems here.

Cardiac Aneurysm

Aneurysm refers to a bulge of the wall or lining of a vessel commonly occurring in the blood vessels at the base of the septum or within the aorta. In the heart, it usually arises from a patch of weakened tissue in a ventricular wall, which swells into a bubble filled with blood. Discover the latest research on cardiac aneurysm here.

Aneurysm

Aneurysms are outward distensions or bulges that occurs in a weakened wall of blood vessels. Discover the latest research on aneurysms here.

Aortic Aneurysm

An aortic aneurysm is the weakening and bulging of the blood vessel wall in the aorta. This causes dilatation of the aorta, which is usually asymptomatic but carries the risk of rupture and hemorrhage. Find the latest research on aortic aneurysms here.
