RESUMO

Hybrid thoracic endovascular aortic repair with surgical arch debranching is an accepted method for total arch reconstruction. Although off-pump arch debranching is increasingly used as a prophylactic adjunct to endovascular arch repair extending into landing zone 0, this technique is seldom performed with a ministernotomy due to a steep learning curve among surgeons. Herein, we report our standard technique for off-pump hybrid total aortic arch repair using a ministernotomy.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Pseudoaneurysm developing after repair of a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is uncommon, with only a handful of cases reported in the literature. While older literature cites infection, recent series suggest that formation of pseudoaneurysm off of a ligated PDA attributed to breakdown in the suture line. Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for this rare pathology has been demonstrated in selected case reports. METHODS/RESULTS: A 61-year-old woman presented with enlarging left chest mass and shortness of breath. The patient reported a history of a PDA with 2 attempts at closure. At age 6, she had undergone an attempt at endovascular closure of the PDA; this subsequently resulted in right lower extremity limb ischemia with resultant below-knee amputation. At age 12, she underwent open thoracotomy with ligation of the PDA; at this procedure, she had injury to her recurrent laryngeal nerve, resulting in permanent hoarseness of voice. A computed tomography angiogram of the chest was obtained, which demonstrated a saccular 4.5 × 3.8 cm pseudoaneurysm in the region of the PDA with calcific wall changes. Recommendation was made to proceed with operative repair and she agreed. A TEVAR was performed using a commercially available stent graft. During the procedure, intravascular ultrasound was performed; however, the connection between the PDA pseudoaneurysm and the aorta was not visualized. She had an uncomplicated operative and postoperative course. Follow-up imaging showed complete thrombosis of the pseudoaneurysm. CONCLUSIONS: Pseudoaneurysm from previous PDA repair is a rare pathology. We present a unique case in which the patient had undergone attempts at both endovascular and open surgical repair. Open repair for PDA is still advocated; however, TEVAR appears to be a safe treatment in adults with this pathology following failed open closure.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Surgical site infection (SSI) presents a ubiquitous concern to surgical specialties, especially in the presence of prosthetic material. Antibiotic-impregnated beads present a novel and evolving means to combat this condition. This review aims to analyze the quality of evidence and methods of antibiotic bead use, particularly for application within vascular surgery. METHODS: A systematic scoping review was conducted within Embase, MEDLINE, and the Cochrane Registry of Randomized Controlled Trials. Articles were evaluated by 2 independent reviewers. Level of evidence was evaluated using the Oxford Center for Evidence-Based Medicine Criteria and the Cochrane Risk of Bias Tool for Randomized Controlled Trials. RESULTS: The search yielded 6951 papers, with 275 included for final analysis. Publications increased in frequency from 1978 to the present. The most common formulation was polymethyl methacrylate; however publications on biodegradable formulations, including calcium sulfate beads, have been published with increasing frequency. Most publications had positive conclusions (94.2%); however, the data was mainly subjective and may be prone to publication bias. Only 11 randomized controlled trials were identified and all but one was evaluated to be at a high risk of bias. The most common indication was for osteomyelitis (52%), orthopedic prosthetic infections (20%), and trauma (9%). Within vascular surgery, beads have been used primarily for the treatment of graft infection, with freedom from recurrence rates being reported from 41% to 87.5%. CONCLUSIONS: Antibiotic-impregnated beads provide a means to deliver high doses of antibiotic directly to a surgical site, without the risks of parenteral therapy. There has yet to be significant high-level quality data published on their use. There is a large body of evidence that suggests antibiotic beads may be used in SSIs in high-risk patients, prosthetic infections, and other complex surgical infections. Important potential areas of application in vascular surgery include graft infection, prevention of wound infection in high-risk patients, and diabetic foot infection.

RESUMO

Axillary artery blowout is a rare life- and limb-threatening condition. The traditional surgical approach of ligation and extra-anatomic bypass is associated with a high morbidity and mortality. We present a case report of a 65-year-old male with axillary artery hemorrhage secondary to an irradiated squamous cell cancer. We propose a staged hybrid approach for the treatment of this unusual clinical entity consisting of emergent stent grafting followed by planned elective extra-anatomic bypass, debridement, and a course of specific antimicrobial therapy.

RESUMO

Aortic graft infections are uncommon complications after endovascular aortic surgery. In the majority of cases, gram-positive and then gram-negative organisms are the causative agents leading to this condition. Atypical organisms are traditionally not responsible for graft infection unless the patient is immunocompromised. We are reporting a case of culture-confirmed mycobacterium avium complex infection of an aortic graft in a well-controlled patient with HIV who had an undetected viral load and a CD4 count of 324 while on highly active antiretroviral therapy.

RESUMO

Background: To present a technique of sheath supported contralateral limb gate (CLG) cannulation of modular bifurcated stent-graft in endovascular abdominal aortic repair. Materials and methods: After totally percutaneous bilateral femoral access, the 9F introducer sheath is exchanged to a 30 cm 12 fr introducer sheath over a stiff wire contralateral to the intended main stent-graft insertion side and advanced into the aorta below the lowest renal artery. Parallel to the stiff wire within the sheath an additional standard J-tip guidewire with a 5 fr Pigtail angiographic catheter is advanced to the level of the renal arteries. After main body deployment, the 12 fr introducer sheath and J-tip wire with pigtail catheter are retracted until the CLG opening level, maintaining the stiff "buddy" wire in position to support the 12 fr sheath, maintaining its distal opening close to the contralateral gate opening to achieve easy cannulation. Results: Retrospective analysis of video archive from July 2016 to February 2018 evidenced 55 recorded EVAR cases. All CLG cannulations were obtained with Standard J-tip or Terumo Glidewire wires and with Pig-Tail or Berenstein catheters. Technical success was 100 %. Mean fluoroscopy time to accomplish CLG cannulation was 37.6 33 (range 1-105) seconds. The aortic carrefour angulation on coronal axis strongly correlates with cannulation time p = <.001, with longer cannulation time for higher carrefour angulations on coronal axis (Pearson correlation coefficient 0.47). Conclusions: The use of 12 fr sheath with parallel wire introduction technique, appears to be a safe and reliable tool to facilitate CLG cannulation during EVAR procedures.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: Compare technical, clinical, and economic outcomes between endovascular and open approaches in patients with type D aortoiliac occlusive disease according to the TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus. METHODS: Patients undergoing revascularization for type D aortoiliac lesions, either endovascular or open surgery approach, from 2 Portuguese institutions between January 2011 and October 2017 were included. The surgical technique was left to the surgeon discretion. Patients with common femoral artery affection, both obstructive and aneurysmatic, were excluded. RESULTS: Twenty-seven patients underwent aortobifemoral bypass and 32 patients were submitted to endovascular repair. The patients undergoing endovascular procedure were more likely to present with chronic heart failure (P = .001) and chronic kidney disease (P = .022) and less likely to have a history of smoking (P = .05). The mean follow-up period was 67.84 (95% confidence interval = 61.85-73.83) months. The open surgery approach resulted in a higher technical success (P = .001); however, limb salvage and patency rates were not different between groups. Endovascular approach was associated with a shorter length-of-stay, both inpatient (6 vs 9 days; P = .041) and patients admitted in the intensive care unit (0 vs 3.81 days; P = .001) as well as lower hospital expenses (US$9281 vs US$23 038; P = .001) with a similar procedure cost (US$2316 vs US$1173; P = .6). No differences were found in the postsurgical quality of life. CONCLUSION: Endovascular approach is, at least, clinically equivalent to open surgery approach and is more cost-efficient. The "endovascular-first" approach should be considered for type D occlusive aortoiliac lesions.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: The aim of this study is to present our personal experience using covered nitinol stent-graft in the treatment of outflow tract stenosis of arteriovenous grafts (AVGs) for hemodialysis access. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between May 2015 and October 2017, we retrospectively evaluated 36 (24 males, 12 females; mean age: 65.6 years) patients with AVGs on hemodialysis who underwent percutaneous angioplasty followed by endovascular stent-graft deployment for the treatment of stenosis of the venous outflow of the AVG. Indication for treatment included early restenosis (<3 months after previous percutaneous transluminal angioplasty [PTA]), long stenosis (stenoses >50% extending for a length >5 cm), and recoil of the stenosis after PTA performed with a noncompliant high-pressure balloon. Of 36 patients, 27 (75%) required surgical thrombectomy prior to endovascular procedure. Technical success, clinical success, primary and secondary patency, and safety were evaluated. RESULTS: Technical success was 100%, and clinical success was 94.4%. Primary patency was 94.4%, 72.2%, 63%, 45.9%, and 45.9% at 1, 3, 6, 12, and 18 months (average: 215 days, range: 9-653 days); secondary patency was 94.4% and 86.1% at 1 and 3 months; 80.4% at 6, 12, and 18 months; and 53.6% at 24 months (average: 276.8 days, range: 9-744 days). No deaths were registered. CONCLUSIONS: In selected cases, the use of stent-graft represents an effective and safe solution for the treatment of stenotic complications of the venous outflow of AVGs, even in the setting of access thrombosis.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair in patients with organ transplant remains a challenge. We looked at AAA repair in patients with organ transplants at our tertiary liver and kidney transplant unit. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of a prospectively maintained database was undertaken from January 2008 to July 2018. We looked at patient demographics, type of repair, and technical success including reinterventions, perioperative transplant organ function, and 30-day and 1-year survival rate. Eight of 662 patients who underwent AAA repair had a solid organ transplant. Of these, 5 were kidney transplants, 2 liver transplants, and 1 had kidney and liver transplant; 75% were male; and average age was 63.4 (range: 49-83). All patients had asymptomatic AAAs, and 6 were treated with standard endovascular repair, 1 standard repair with iliac branch device, and 1 open repair. Adjunctive techniques such as CO2 angiograms, deployment of main body through contralateral iliac, low-profile sheaths, custom-made stent grafts, and temporary axillo-femoral shunting were used to protect transplant organs. Thirty-day survival was 100% with 1 death at 5 months from liver failure, and 1 patient has a persistent type-2 endoleak 3 years after the procedure. CONCLUSION: Abdominal aortic aneurysm repair in patients with organ transplants can be undertaken using adjunctive endovascular and open surgical techniques.

RESUMO

Hepatic artery thrombosis is the most common vascular complication after liver transplantation. Early thrombosis is treated by surgical revascularization; if not feasible, there is need for urgent retransplantation. Late thrombosis is diagnosed mostly when clinical symptoms or graft dysfunction are present, in which case the only possible therapy is retransplantation. We present a case of a young patient with late thrombosis of an aorto-hepatic bypass, in whom we successfully used thrombolytic therapy with stent-graft placement.

RESUMO

The patient was a 52-year-old man who had undergone total arch replacement for type A aortic dissection 2 months before. He was admitted to our hospital with hemoptysis due to aortobronchial fistula. We planned to perform 1-stage open chest surgery, but he passed away before the surgery. We considered that earlier open surgery or emergency endovascular stent grafting might have been effective in avoiding this result.

RESUMO

The authors analysed oral anticoagulant agents prescribed in the postoperative period to patients after endured reconstructive operative intervention on arteries of the femorotibial segment. The study included a total of 104 patients subjected to femoropopliteal or femorotibial bypass grafting using an autologous vein or a prosthesis. Depending on the prescribed anticoagulation agent, the patients were subdivided into two groups. Group One patients (n=43) in the postoperative period received rivaroxaban, and Group Two patients (n=61) took warfarin. Efficacy of therapy was evaluated by the frequency of haemorrhage and thromboses in the early and remote postoperative periods. The findings of the immediate postoperative period demonstrated comparable rates of haemorrhagic complications, early thromboses and redo interventions in both Groups (p=0.7). The duration of long-term postoperative period varied from 3 months to 5 years. No statistically significant differences in patency of the performed reconstructions were revealed between the groups. The 3-year primary assisted patency rate in the rivaroxaban group and warfarin group amounted to 89 and 80%, respectively. The incidence of haemorrhagic complications in the postoperative period was insignificant in the studied groups. Hence, rivaroxaban may be prescribed in the early and remote postoperative period to patients who underwent open reconstructive operative intervention on arteries of the infrainguinal zone.

RESUMO

AIM: The study was aimed at demonstrating efficacy and feasibility of intravascular ultrasound during internal carotid artery stenting for assessment of atheromatous plaque protrusion through a stent. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Over the period from October to December 2018, the specialists of our Centre performed a total of 90 internal carotid artery stenting procedures in 83 patients (of these, 7 patients underwent bilateral staged stenting of both internal carotid arteries) using intravascular ultrasound in order to assess intraoperative protrusion of an atherosclerotic plaque through the implanted stent. The patients' age varied from 42 to 87 (mean 68.6±6.9) years. Symptomatic lesions of internal carotid arteries were revealed in 14 (16.9%) operated patients and asymptomatic lesions in 69 (83.1%). The degree of stenosis varied from 60% to 90% according to the findings of preliminary duplex ultrasonography and was subsequently confirmed by the results of multislice computed tomography or selective angiography. The assessment of the patients' neurological status, as well as duplex ultrasonography of brachiocephalic arteries were performed at a scheduled follow-up visit on day 30 after discharge from hospital. RESULTS: The technical success of stenting was achieved in 100% of patients. According to the findings of intravascular ultrasound, plaque protrusion was observed in eight (8.8%) stented patients. Among them, six (6.6%) were free from angiographic signs of protrusion and only two (2.2%) had apparent angiographic signs of protrusion. During the early postoperative period, transient ischaemic attack was identified in four (4.4%) cases. One (1.1%) patient was found to develop ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction 24 hours after internal carotid artery stenting, followed by large hemispheric stroke on the side of stenting revealed on postoperative day 3. Nine (10%) patients according to the findings of intravascular ultrasound were diagnosed as having incomplete stent apposition after postdilatation, with the absence of such signs on angiography. CONCLUSION: Intravascular ultrasound during carotid stenting provides a more accurate assessment of such an event as atherosclerotic plaque protrusion through a stent's cells. At the same time, IVUS-guided assessment of the intraoperative outcome may prevent the risk for the development of stroke in the early postoperative period. Besides, intravascular ultrasound allows a more detailed assessment of stent apposition and the degree of stent expansion in order to optimize and improve the remote results of the operation.

RESUMO

AIM: The study was undertaken to evaluate safety and efficacy of carotid stents Acculink (open-cell carotid stent) and CGuard (closed-cell type stent) in treatment of patients presenting with atherosclerotic lesions of carotid arteries. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study enrolled a total of 50 patients diagnosed with haemodynamically significant stenosis of the carotid artery and divided into two groups of 25 patients each. Group One patients received Acculink stents and Group Two patients underwent implantation of CGuard stents. Ultrasonographic examination was performed in all patients before and after surgery, as well as at 6 and 12 months thereafter; magnetic resonance imaging of the brain was carried out before and after surgery (at 24-48 postoperative hours and on POD 30). The entire period of follow up included 5 examinations of each patient by a neurologist. The obtained findings were statistically analysed using the Statistica 12 software (StatSoft, USA). The level of deviation of the null hypothesis of the absence of differences between the groups was regarded as significant at p<0.05. RESULTS: The technical success of the operation amounted to 100% in both groups. There were no complications (such as haematoma, arterial dissection, etc.) in the area of the approach in either group. The findings of ultrasonographic examination of the extracranial portion of the carotid arteries demonstrated a significant difference in the form of a decrease in the degree of narrowing of the operated vessel (p<0.05) as compared with its initial parameters. The number of the detected foci of acute cerebral ischaemia in the postoperative period (24-48 h) amounted to: in the Acculink group - 14 (56%), in the CGuard group - 12 (48%), p>0.77. Of these, multiple foci in Group One were encountered significantly more often than in Group Two (p=0.02). The patients with the Acculink stent implanted were found to develop 2 (4%) episodes of acute cerebral circulation impairment: the first one occurring after 24 hours and the second one at 28 days after stenting, with no such complications observed in Group Two patients. CONCLUSION: Comparing the two stents (Acculink and CGuard) demonstrated no advantages with respect to safety and efficacy of either stent in endovascular treatment of patients with atherosclerotic lesions of brachiocephalic arteries.

RESUMO

An abdominal aortic aneurysm is one of frequently encountered cardiovascular diseases, which is often accompanied by an aneurysm of the common and/or internal iliac arteries. Recent trends are towards increased use of endovascular methods of treatment, associated with a certain risk for the development of type IIa endoleaks. This raises the question as to the necessity of embolization of the internal iliac artery while covering it with a stent graft. Our study included a total of 20 patients operated on for abdominal aortic aneurysms combined with aneurysms of the common and/or internal iliac arteries. In order to evaluate the obtained outcomes, the patients were divided into 4 groups depending on the intervention performed. The scope of the performed operations varied from endoprosthetic repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm with coverage of one internal iliac artery without embolization to endoprosthetic repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm with coverage of both internal iliac arteries with embolization. In the latter event, two-stage interventions were performed. The duration of follow up amounted to more than 3 years. We assessed the short- and long-term outcomes, with zero lethality and the absence of either specific or non-specific complications observed. Embolization increases the duration of the operation and X-ray exposure, as well as the amount of the contrast medium, thus casting doubt upon the necessity of carrying it out, since the immediate and remote results do not differ as compared with mere coverage of the internal iliac artery.

RESUMO

The authors carried out a prospective study aimed at revealing predictors of acute embolic lesions of cerebral vessels during angioplasty with stenting of the internal carotid artery. The study enrolled a total of 54 patients who between May 2015 and December 2018 underwent carotid angioplasty with stenting performed at the Department of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery of the Research Centre of Neurology. The procedure of internal carotid artery stenting may be accompanied by intraoperative acute embolic lesions. In order to reveal intraoperative acute embolic lesions of cerebral vessels all patients before and 24 hours after the intervention were subjected to diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging. Thirty-six patients received classical carotid stents (Xact and Acculink) and 18 patients received Casper stents. The patients of both groups were comparable by 24 characteristics studied, including the incidence of intraoperative acute cerebral embolic lesions (18/36 for the classical stents and 10/18 for the Casper stent), which made it possible to unite them into one group in order to increase the power of the study. All acute embolic lesions detected by the diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (prior to stenting and 24 hours thereafter) were clinically, asymptomatic with no perioperative stroke observed. In order to reveal predictors of intraoperative acute embolic lesions of cerebral vessels we analysed 22 characteristics of the patients, with the obtained findings demonstrating the following signs: a low-intensity (below 20 dB) ultrasonographic signal reflected from fragments of an atherosclerotic plaque during ultrasound examination prior to stenting (p=0.001) - a sign strongly associated with acute embolic lesions (sensitivity - 75%, specificity - 92%); symptomatic stenosis according to the anamnestic data (p=0.02) - a sign significantly associated with acute embolic lesions; female gender (p=0.06) - a sign moderately associated with acute embolic lesions; a history previously endured (according to the anamnestic data) operations on coronary and/or carotid arteries (p=0.09) - a sign weakly associated with acute embolic lesions. Based on the obtained findings we proposed a prognostic scale to assess the risk of acute embolic lesions of cerebral vessels during internal carotid artery stenting. Knowing the factors associated with intraoperative acute embolic lesions will allow the endovascular surgeon to single out the patients at increased risk of acute embolic lesions.

RESUMO

Described herein is a clinical case report regarding treatment of a 70-year-old male patient presenting with a late complication following endoprosthetic repair for a Stanford type B dissecting thoracic aortic aneurysm. The man was admitted to our hospital for persistent type IIb endoleak and an increased diameter of the aorta in its thoracic and thoracoabdominal portions. Two years previously, he had endured endoprosthetic repair of the thoracic aorta. The findings of computed tomography revealed negative dynamics manifesting as an increase in the diameter of the false channel of the arch and descending thoracic aorta with persistent type IIb endoleak. He was subjected to elimination of abdominal aortic dissection and type IIb endoleak with partial prosthetic repair of the descending thoracic portion of the aorta by means of prosthetic repair of the lower thoracic portion of the aorta between the stent graft and linear vascular Dacron prosthesis. The postoperative period was complicated by transient acute renal failure and paraparesis of the lower limbs. The patient was discharged on POD 14, with no endoleaks revealed on control computed tomography 3 months thereafter.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Acute thrombosis in the system of the inferior vena cava is one of the most common vascular diseases and is of serious danger as a potential source of one of the most severe complications. In order to assess efficacy of open thrombectomy for embologenic iliofemoral venous thromboses we carried out comparison of the results of open thrombectomy and implantation of cava filters in a total of 119 patients presenting with iliofemoral thrombosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Open thrombectomy was performed in a total of 59 patients. Of these, 12 patients with segmental thromboses underwent radical thrombectomy and 47 patients with disseminated forms of thrombosis were subjected to partial thrombectomy with plication of the femoral vein. In 5 patients, the operation was supplemented with applying an arteriovenous fistula. Efficacy of operations was assessed with the help of ultrasonographic duplex angioscanning and regression of clinical manifestations. In the remote period, the degree of manifestations of post-thrombotic disease was assessed by means of the Villalta scale. RESULTS: After radical thrombectomy, patency of the iliofemoral segment was preserved in all patients during the whole follow-up period. In the group of patients with partial thrombectomy, 5 (9.5%) patients developed rethrombosis above the placation site at terms from 8 to 12 months. Four-year patency of the iliofemoral segment in this group of patients amounted to 81.5%. In patients with implanted cava filters, neither femoral vein nor iliac segment were patent completely. During the first year, thrombosis of cava filter developed in 9 cases; after 2 years, occlusion of the cava filter was diagnosed in 7 patients. In clinical assessment of the remote results with the use of the Villalta scale in patients after open thrombectomy the symptoms of post-traumatic disease were absent or weakly pronounced. After implantation of the cava filter all patients demonstrated the clinical course of post-traumatic disease, corresponding to 10-15 points. CONCLUSION: Open thrombectomy for iliofemoral embologenic thromboses performed at specialized departments is a radical method of preventing thromboembolic complications and promotes restoration or improvement of venous blood flow in the extremity.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Coronary artery aneurysms (CAAs) are uncommon in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We describe the clinical features and outcomes of stent-assisted coil embolization of a CAA in the trigeminal position. PATIENT CONCERNS: We present a 73-year-old woman with a history of paroxysmal episodes of precordial pain since 1 year. Coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) revealed an aneurysm (diameter: 9 mm) at the junction of the distal left main coronary artery and the anterior descending branch. Troponin I, CK-MB, creatinine and routine blood investigations were within the normal range. DIAGNOSIS: Coronary artery aneurysm in the left main trigeminal position. INTERVENTIONS: The patient was treated with stent-assisted coil embolization. OUTCOMES: After complete filling of the aneurysm with coil, the microcatheter was withdrawn and the stent released in the descending branch. Two stents were successfully implanted. LESSONS: There is no clear consensus on the optimal therapy for patients with CAAs. Clinicians should be aware of the possible complications of stent-assisted coil embolization of CAA in the main trunk of the coronary artery.
