Aortic Aneurysm

February 14, 2019
In the latest issue of JACC, the Stanford group led by Dr. Dake published a retrospective study to evaluate the effectiveness of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) compared to open surgical repair for descending aortic aneurysms.

In this paper, Dr Coselli and colleagues analyzed their experience with spinal cord deficit (SCD) after 1114 extent II open thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repairs performed from 1991-2017.

Aung Ye Oo of The Barts Heart Centre in London, UK, discusses the use of endovascular stents in patients with connective tissue disorders.

On February 4, 2019, Cook Medical announced recent approval from the US Food and Drug Administration for its Zenith Dissection Endovascular System. The system consists of a proximal stent-graft component and a distal bare stent component. It provides a less invasive alternative to open surgery for repair of type B dissections.

In this retrospective cohort study, Dr Ehrlich and his colleagues reported excellent early and long-term results of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for 55 high-risk patients with life-threatening acute complicated type B aortic dissection. The mean age of patients was 52 ± 13 years.

Patent descending aortic false lumen in type A dissection is associated with limited long-term outcomes. Inoue and colleagues aimed to evaluate the efficacy of their group’s strategy for these patients.

In this paper, Dr Svensson covers his technique of leaflet repair during aortic root reimplantation. The core technical points are described as well as the long-term clinical outcomes.
November 7, 2018
Watanabe and associates studied the association between false lumen remodeling late after type A dissection repair and the shape of the true lumen in the early postoperative period. They found that the true lumen shape in the early postoperative period predicts false lumen remodeling late after surgery.
