Title: Dacron Graft Aneurysm Treated by Endovascular Stent-Graft

Abstract

A 72-year old man who underwent aorto-bifemoral bypass with insertion of a Dacron graft 18 years previously presented with an aneurysm in the left limb of his graft. Angiography also demonstrated a bilateral occlusion of the popliteal arteries. Computed tomography (CT) angiography was performed and showed a localized dilation of 3 cm in the left limb of the graft, which had a diameter of 14 mm throughout. In view of the technical difficulties of a surgical procedure, an endovascular stent was considered. Through a left femoral arteriotomy, a stent graft was inserted and deployed in the left limb of the graft. This resulted in total exclusion of the Dacron graft aneurysm. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of such a procedure.

  • A 71-year-old patient with high-output cardiac failure was found to have an aneurysmal distal aorta with evidence of an arteriocaval fistula on ultrasound scanning. CT demonstrated an aneurysm of the distal aorta and right common iliac artery and an intraarterial digital subtraction angiogram confirmed an arteriocaval fistula. In view of the patient's cardiac failure and general condition an endovascular stent was considered. The right internal iliac artery was occluded with Tungsten coils prior to the insertion of a bifurcated stent-graft. This resulted in total occlusion of the aneurysm and obliteration of the arteriocaval fistula. To our knowledge such a casemore » has not been previously reported.« less
  • Spontaneous and isolated dissecting aneurysm of the superior mesenteric artery is a rare event that has been successfully treated by surgery in several reported cases. To our knowledge, we present the first case of a patient with spontaneous and isolated dissecting aneurysm of the superior mesenteric artery that was successfully treated by endovascular stent-graft placement.

  • We report the case of a patient who underwent endovascular repair and then reintervention as a result of the presence of a persistent endoleak complicated by an aortocaval fistula. A 76-year-old patient with a history of endovascular treatment for abdominal aortic aneurysm 2 years earlier had a palpable abdominal mass, high-output cardiac failure, and renal failure. A computed tomographic scan and angiography revealed bending of the right iliac limb, a type I endoleak, and rupture of the aneurysm into the inferior vena cava with aortocaval fistula formation. An iliac extension was positioned in the right external iliac artery. The proceduremore » was finished successfully. Control angiography showed normal flow within the endoprosthesis, and both iliac arteries were without signs of endoleakage and aortocaval fistula. Ectatic common iliac artery may lead to a late distal attachment site endoleak. The application of a stent graft in cases of secondary aortocaval fistula after stent graft repair is a good option, particularly in emergency cases.« less
  • Celiac trunk aneurysms are rare and usually asymptomatic lesions. However, treatment is generally warranted to avoid catastrophic rupture. We report a case of a 70-year-old man who sought care for a celiac trunk aneurysm close to the hepatosplenic bifurcation managed endovascularly by using a combined treatment of celiac-splenic stent-graft implantation and hepatic artery embolization.
