Abstract

BACKGROUND: Endovascular repair (EVR) of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is feasible for selected patients. Placing an uncovered stent across the origins of the renal arteries may improve fixation and seal of the proximal end of the stent-graft. However, this has potential for problems (e.g. renal artery stenosis or microembolization). This study aimed to evaluate the short-term effect of a suprarenal stent on the function of the individual kidney. METHODS: In 30 patients undergoing EVR for AAA, renal function was assessed before and after operation by 99mTc-radiolabelled diethylenetriamine penta-acetate radionuclide renography and daily measurement of serum creatinine levels. Eleven patients had infrarenal stent-grafts using an aorta uni-iliac system (group 1); 19 patients had the device with an uncovered suprarenal stent (modified Gianturco Z stent), ten of which were aorta uni-iliac and nine bifurcated systems (group 2). Individual kidney function was expressed as the whole kidney transit time (WKTT). In addition, glomerular filtration rate (GFR) was measured from serial blood samples following renography. RESULTS: [Table: see text] CONCLUSION: No result reached statistical significance. Placing an uncovered stent over the o...Continue Reading

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.
