Abstract

To evaluate the incidence and extent of length changes during implantation of endovascular grafts in a prospective study of patients undergoing endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair. Data regarding the occurrence of intraoperative technical difficulties and device complications were recorded prospectively for the Vanguard or AneuRx self-expanding, bifurcated endovascular grafts in 64 patients (56 males; mean age 75 years). Graft length was measured in the sheath system before deployment and again immediately after deployment by fluoroscopic comparison to a graduated marking catheter. Graft shortening > or = 15 mm was documented in 22 (56%) of 39 Vanguard cases and 11 (44%) of 25 AneuRx endografts. Additional extension grafts were required to correct endoleak caused by inadequate graft length in 9 (14%) patients, but no conversion to open repair was necessary. There appears to be a high incidence of intraprocedural graft shortening with 2 current designs of self-expanding endoluminal grafts.
