Background: Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) is a technique that uses internal clamping of the aorta to control abdominal, pelvic, or junctional bleeding. We created a course to train military physicians in both civilian prehospital use and battlefield use. To determine the effectiveness of this training, we conducted REBOA training for French military emergency physicians. Read More

Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair is an operation of choice in rendering hi-tech care for patients with aneurysms of the infrarenal aortic portion. The most frequently performed reoperations account for cases related to removing endoleaks. The article deals with assessing the presence of various types of endoleaks depending on the time elapsed after abdominal aortic aneurysm repair by means of duplex scanning and multislice computed tomography.

Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) secondary to infections are rare but carry important implications. The diagnosis is difficult due to unspecific symptoms. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first AAA caused by chronic Q fever treated with an endoprosthesis. Read More

Background: Aneurysm repair using endovascular techniques has grown in importance as materials have improved. Studies of endovascular prostheses require experimental models that reproduce anatomic and pathophysiological characteristics of human aneurysms.Objectives: To describe a porcine model of abdominal aortic aneurysm.

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is associated with the loss of vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) within the vessel wall. Direct delivery of therapeutic cells is challenging due to impaired mechanical integrity of the vessel wall. We hypothesized that porous collagen scaffolds can be an effective vehicle for the delivery of human-derived SMCs to the site of AAA. Read More
