  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. 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

  3. 3. Re-interventions after endovascular aortic repair: clinical and experimental studies

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

    Author : Håkan Roos; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; EVAR; stent graft; blood flow; displacement forces; aortic aneurysm; angulation; reoperation;

    Abstract : Background: Endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) has lower morbidity and mortality than open surgery. Late complications and re-interventions are more common, however, and the timing of different re-interventions and their respective underlying causes are not fully understood. READ MORE

  4. 4. Interventions for portal hypertension in patients with portal vein occlusion and possible effects of a stent-graft on hepatic circulation

    University dissertation from Diagnostic Radiology, (Lund)

    Author : Inger Keussen; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; recanalization; TIPS; hepatic vein occlusion; children; Key words: portal vein occlusion; scintigraphy; stent; portal hypertension;

    Abstract : Symptomatic portal hypertension (PH), is often treated by transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS). Patients with PH, caused by prehepatic portal vein occlusion, require recanalization with stent or stent-graft often followed by additional TIPS. READ MORE

  5. 5. Aortic aneurysms and dissections. A clinical follow-up after surgery

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Vincenzo Lepore; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aortic aneurysm; aortic dissection; composite-graft; aortic arch replacement; aortic endoluminal stent-graft; Marfan syndrome; MRI.;

    Abstract : ABSTRACTThe purpose of this study was to report on the results after aortic surgery on thoracic aneurysms and dissections and to study the feasibility of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the follow-up after aortic surgery. In this thesis, 203 patients ungergoing surgery on the thoracic aorta between 1977 and 2000 are included. READ MORE
