Systemic Inflammatory Disease and Its Association With Type II Endoleak and Late Interventions After Endovascular Aneurysm Repair
February 18, 2016
The authors studied outcomes after endovascular AAA aneurysm repair (EVAR) to assess whether ongoing aortic remodeling related to systemic inflammatory disease (SID) contributes to an increased incidence of endoleak. 65% of 79 treated patients had systemic inflammatory disease. Major complication rates were increased 7-fold in the group with SID.
Propensity Adjusted Analysis of Open and Endovascular Thoracic Aortic Repair for Chronic Type B Dissection: A Twenty-Year Evaluation
April 2, 2015
This analysis compared results of open repair for chronic Type B dissection (OAR) and endovascular repair (TEVAR) using propensity matching techniques. Freedom from rupture/reintervention at 10 years was 78%. Specific outcomes were similar for both types of intervention, but overall treatment efficacy was better for OAR.
Balloon Atrial Septostomy in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension: Effect on Survival and Associated Outcomes
January 24, 2015
The Columbia group performed a retrospective analysis of 46 balloon atrial septostomies in 32 patients with severe and medically refractory PAH from 2002-2013. There were no procedural deaths or complications. BAS was safely used as a bridge to lung transplantation or to alleviate right heart failure symptoms and/or syncope.
