Open repair versus evar with parallel grafts in patients with juxtarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm excluded from fenestrated endografting.

J Cardiovasc Surg (Torino) 2021 Jun 18. Epub 2021 Jun 18.

Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Department of Cardiac, Thoracic, Vascular Science and Public Health, Padua University School of Medicine, Padua, Italy.

Background: We compared the outcomes of open surgical repair (OSR) versus EVAR with parallel graft technique (PG) in patients with juxtarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (JAAA) excluded from fenestrated endovascular aortic repair (FEVAR) due to clinical, anatomical, technical or manufacturing time reasons.

Methods: A single-center analysis of consecutive patients who underwent elective and urgent (within 24-48 hours) repair of JAAA from January 2010 to January 2019 was performed. Two groups were compared: patients excluded from FEVAR and respectively treated by OSR or by PG for JAAA. Read More

Risk Factors, Dynamics, and Clinical Consequences of Aortic Neck Dilatation after Standard Endovascular Aneurysm Repair.

Eur J Vasc Endovasc Surg 2021 Jun 2. Epub 2021 Jun 2.

Department of Vascular Surgery, Erasmus University Medical Centre, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Objective: Aortic neck dilatation (AND) occurs after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) with self expanding stent grafts (SESs). Whether it continues, ultimately exceeding the endograft diameter leading to abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) rupture, remains uncertain. Dynamics, risk factors, and clinical relevance of AND were investigated after EVAR with standard SESs. Read More

The importance of adrenal venous sampling in ACTH-independent Cushing syndrome: A case report and literature review.

Exp Ther Med 2021 Jul 18;22(1):772. Epub 2021 May 18.

Discipline of Pediatric Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, 'Carol Davila' University of Medicine and Pharmacy, 020021 Bucharest, Romania.

Independent Cushing's adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) syndrome can have several causes, including adrenal carcinoma or simple adrenal hyperplasia. Although the distinction between malignant and benign can be effectively made through imaging investigations, in the situation where there are bilateral formations, their hormonal activity is impossible to appreciate via non-invasive techniques. The present study includes the presentation of a clinical case on the basis of which a literature review was made. Read More

Incidence and predictors of early and delayed renal function decline after aortic aneurysm repair in the Vascular Quality Initiative database.

J Vasc Surg 2021 May 18. Epub 2021 May 18.

Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, Ala.

Background: Postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI) may complicate both open and endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) and is associated with substantial morbidity, mortality, and health care expense. We aim to evaluate the incidence of postoperative AKI and factors associated with its occurrence and the effects of postoperative AKI on long-term renal function and mortality after open and EVAR in the Society for Vascular Surgery Vascular Quality Initiative registry.

The role of surgical and total endovascular techniques in the treatment of ruptured juxtarenal aortic aneurysms.

Vasa 2021 May 19:1-7. Epub 2021 May 19.

Department of Vascular Surgery and Research Vascular Centre, Asklepios Clinic Langen, University of Frankfurt, Langen, Germany.

Ruptured juxtarenal aortic aneurysms (RJAAA) represent a special challenge in clinical practice, but the evidence to guide therapeutic decision-making is scarce. The aim of this study was to present two different approaches, open surgical (OAR) and chimney endovascular repair (CHEVAR), for treating patients with RJAAA. This retrospective two-center study included all patients per center undergoing OAR or CHEVAR for RJAAA between February 2008 and January 2020. Read More

The Impact of Endograft Selection on Outcomes Following Treatment Outside of Instructions for Use (IFU) in Endovascular Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair (EVAR).

Cureus 2021 May 4;13(5):e14841. Epub 2021 May 4.

Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, University of Western Australia, Perth, AUS.

Background Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) has become the treatment modality of choice in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms. This has resulted in endograft utilization within instructions for use (IFU) and in cases with proximal neck anatomy outside of IFU. Purpose To identify whether graft selection influences outcomes following EVAR outside of IFU. Read More

Aortic Neck IFU Violations During EVAR for Ruptured Infrarenal Aortic Aneurysms are Associated with Increased In-Hospital Mortality.

Ann Vasc Surg 2021 May 2. Epub 2021 May 2.

Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy, The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, MD.

Objective: Vascular surgeons treating patients with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm must make rapid treatment decisions and sometimes lack immediate access to endovascular devices meeting the anatomic specifications of the patient at hand. We hypothesized that endovascular treatment of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rEVAR) outside manufacturer instructions-for-use (IFU) guidelines would have similar in-hospital mortality compared to patients treated on-IFU or with an infrarenal clamp during open repair (ruptured open aortic aneurysm repair [rOAR]).

Methods: Vascular Quality Initiative datasets for endovascular and open aortic repair were queried for patients presenting with ruptured infrarenal AAA between 2013-2018. Read More

Suprarenal lymphadenectomy with nephrectomy for refractory ovarian cancer.

Gland Surg 2021 Mar;10(3):1268-1270

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

The effect of debulking surgery is not vague in patients with refractory ovarian cancer because of drug-resistant tumor biology showing rapid growth. However, it can be considered to be beneficial for selected patients expected to show tumor response by postoperative treatment because the better perfused small tumors may favor the action of cytotoxic therapy. Among them, patients with enlarged lymph nodes and mutations can show a relatively high rate of response and improved survival by systematic lymphadenectomy followed by poly ADP ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitors.

Time-to-Event Analysis of the Impact of Endovascular Aortic Aneurysm Repair on Chronic Renal Decline.

Ann Vasc Surg 2021 Apr 3. Epub 2021 Apr 3.

Division of Vascular Surgery, Department of Surgery, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, Nagoya, Japan.

Background: Although randomized studies have revealed the long-term outcomes of the endovascular repair (ER) of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) compared to open repair (OR), there is controversy surrounding chronic renal decline (CRD) after ER. This study reviewed our propensity-matched cohorts of ER and OR to compare CRD rates using a time-to-event analysis. The ER groups undergoing suprarenal (SR) or infrarenal (IR) proximal fixation were also compared with the OR group. Read More

Nationwide Study to Predict Colonic Ischemia after Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair in The Netherlands.

Ann Vasc Surg 2021 May 28;73:407-416. Epub 2020 Dec 28.

Department of Vascular Surgery, Haga Teaching Hospital, The Hague, the Netherlands.

Background: Colonic ischemia remains a severe complication after abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair and is associated with a high mortality. With open repair being one of the main risk factors of colonic ischemia, deciding between endovascular or open aneurysm repair should be based on tailor-made medicine. This study aims to identify high-risk patients of colonic ischemia, a risk that can be taken into account while deciding on AAA treatment strategy. Read More
