  1. 1. Clinical Aspects on Chimney Stent Graft Technique in Endovascular Repair of the Aorta

    University dissertation from Vascular Diseases, Lund University

    Author : Adel BinJabr; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chimney stent graft; chimney graft; chimney graft technique; snorkel technique; endovascular aortic repair; thoracic endovascular aortic repair; endoleak; patency; rupture; urgent; stent-graft; stent; graft; aorta; computed tomography; ultrasound; stenosis; EVAR; TEVAR; CTA; MRI; AAA; TAAA; supraaortic; visceral; aneurysm; dissection; mycotic infection; stent-graft infection; follow-up; endovascular complication; sandwich technique; periscope graft; periscope graft technique.;

    Abstract : Introduction: Open repair of the aorta carries a high risk for morbidity and mortality especially in the elderly population and in patients unfit for major surgery. Endovascular aortic repair is safe, durable and effective when there is adequate proximal and distal sealing zone for the aortic stent graft. READ MORE

  2. 2. Juxtarenal aortic aneurysm - Endovascular treatment and imaging techniques

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Thorarinn Kristmundsson; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Abdominal aortic aneurysm; juxtarenal aneurysm; endovascular repair; fenestrated endovascular repair; imaging; computed tomography; ultrasound.;

    Abstract : Treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms has shifted rapidly from open surgery to minimally invasive endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). However, anatomical limitations such as short or absent proximal sealing neck and poor access vessels exclude up to 50% of patients. READ MORE

  3. 3. Intra-Aneurysm Sac Pressure and Clinical Results after Endovascular Repair of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms

    University dissertation from Nuno Dias, Endovascular Center, Entrance 59, Malmö University Hospital, S-20502 Malmö

    Author : Nuno Dias; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Diagnostics; Diagnostik; Open Repair; EVAR; Endovascular Aneurysm Repair; Pressure; Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm;

    Abstract : AIM: The aim was to evaluate the results of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) in terms of intra-AAA pressure and clinical outcomes. METHODS AND RESULTS: 0.014-inch guide-wire-mounted tip-pressure sensors were used for direct intra-aneurysm sac pressure measurement (DISP) through translumbar puncture of the AAA. READ MORE

  4. 4. MRI with MR Angiography in Endovascular Repair of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms

    University dissertation from Lena Engellau, Department of Radiology, Lund University Hospital, SE-221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Lena Engellau; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; medical instrumentation; Klinisk fysiologi; radiologi; tomografi; medicinsk instrumentering; tomography; radiology; Clinical physics; Contrast media complications; Cost analysis; MR velocity mapping; Artefacts; MR imaging safety; MR angiography; MR imaging; Endovascular repair; Stent-graft; aortic; Aneurysm;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to evaluate MRI with contrast enhanced MR angiography (MRI/CE MRA) as imaging method before and after endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). A 1.5 T scanner was used for all examinations. In this prospective study 26 consecutive patients were included. READ MORE

  5. 5. Endovascular Repair of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms. Aspects on a Novel Technique

    University dissertation from Department of Surgery, Malmö University Hospital, Lund University

    Author : Martin Malina; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; migration.; endoleak; stent; stentgraft; endovascular repair; Aneurysm; therapy; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : A new concept of treating abdominal aortic aneurysms was studied during a three-year period. Instead of open repair, graft insertion was accomplished endovascularly from the groins. The graft was attached by expandable stents to the non-dilated infrarenal aorta, i.e. READ MORE
