  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: Evolving Controversies and Uncertainties
    • Authors: Carino; Davide, Sarac, Timur P., Ziganshin, Bulat A., Elefteriades, John A.
      Abstract: Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is defined as a permanent dilatation of the abdominal aorta that exceeds 3 cm. Most AAAs arise in the portion of abdominal aorta distal to the renal arteries and are defined as infrarenal. Most AAAs are totally asymptomatic until catastrophic rupture. The strongest predictor of AAA rupture is the diameter. Surgery is indicated to prevent rupture when the risk of rupture exceeds the risk of surgery. In this review, we aim to analyze this disease comprehensively, starting from an epidemiological perspective, exploring etiology and pathophysiology, and concluding with surgical controversies. We will pursue these goals by addressing eight specific questions regarding AAA: (1) Is the incidence of AAA increasing' (2) Are ultrasound screening programs for AAA effective' (3) What causes AAA: Genes versus environment' (4) Animal models: Are they really relevant' (5) What pathophysiology leads to AAA' (6) Indications for AAA surgery: Are surgeons over-eager to operate' (7) Elective AAA repair: Open or endovascular' (8) Emergency AAA repair: Open or endovascular'

  • Neuroprotective Strategies in Repair and Replacement of the Aortic Arch
    • Authors: Manetta; Frank, Mullan, Clancy W., Catalano, Michael A.
      Abstract: Aortic arch surgery is a technical challenge, and cerebral protection during distal anastomosis is a continued topic of controversy and discussion. The physiologic effects of hypothermic arrest and adjunctive cerebral perfusion have yet to be fully defined, and the optimal strategies are still undetermined. This review highlights the historical context, physiological rationale, and clinical efficacy of various neuroprotective strategies during arch operations.

  • Open Replacement of the Thoracoabdominal Aorta: Short- and Long-term
           Outcomes at a Single Institution
    • Authors: Carino; Davide, Erben, Young, Zafar, Mohammad A., Singh, Mrinal, Brownstein, Adam J., Tranquilli, Maryann, Rizzo, John, Ziganshin, Bulat A., Elefteriades, John A.
      Abstract: Background Despite much progress in the surgical and endovascular treatment of thoracoabdominal aortic diseases (TAADs), there is no consensus regarding the optimal approach to minimize operative mortality and end-organ dysfunction. We report our experience in the past 16 years treating TAAD by open surgery. Methods A retrospective review of all TAAD patients who underwent an open repair since January 2000 was performed. The primary endpoints included early morbidity and mortality, and the secondary endpoints were overall death and rate of aortic reintervention. Results There were 112 patients treated by open surgery for TAAD. Mean age was 66 ± 10 years and 61 (54%) were male. Seventy-seven (69%) patients had aneurysmal degeneration without aortic dissection and the remaining 35 (31%) had a concomitant aortic dissection. There were 12 deaths (10.7%) and they were equally distributed between the aneurysm and dissection groups (p = 0.8). The mortality for elective surgery was 3.2% (2/61). The rate of permanent paraplegia and stroke were each 2.6% (3/112). The rate of cerebrovascular accident was significantly higher in the dissection group (8.5% vs. 1.2%, p = 0.05). The survival at 1, 5, and 10 years was 80.6, 56.1, and 32.7%, respectively. Conclusion Our data confirm that open replacement of the thoracoabdominal aorta can be performed in expert centers quite safely. Different aortic pathologies (degenerative aneurysm vs. dissection) do not influence the short- and long-term outcomes. Open surgery should still be considered the standard in the management of TAAD.

  • Postoperative Aortic Neck Dilation: Myth or Fact'
    • Authors: Ribner; A.S., Tassiopoulos, A.K.
      Abstract: The abdominal aorta is the most common site of an aortic aneurysm. The visceral and most proximal infrarenal segment (aneurysm neck) are usually spared and considered more resistant to aneurysmal degeneration. However, if an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is left untreated, the natural history of the aortic neck is progressive dilatation and shortening. This may have significant implications for patients undergoing endovascular repair of AAAs (EVAR) as endograft stability and integrity of the repair are dependent on an intact proximal seal zone. Compromised seal zones, caused by progressive diameter enlargement and foreshortening of the aortic neck, may lead to distal endograft migration, type Ia endoleak, aortic sac repressurization, and, ultimately, aortic rupture.

  • Safe Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement in a Patient with a Highly
           Mobile Aortic Valve Mass
    • Authors: Agbor-Etang; Brian B., Mukherjee, Ashis, Sethi, Prabhdeep S., Pai, Ramdas G.
      Abstract: Some cardiac valve masses may have embolic potential with worrisome consequences. We describe the dilemmas of and solutions for a highly mobile papillary fibroelastoma on the aortic valve in a nonsurgical patient undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement. It was performed safely. The potential strategies to minimize the risk of embolization are discussed.

  • Reoperations on Thoracic Aorta and Aortic Root: Surgical Technique and
           Pitfalls
    • Authors: Ramaiah; Chand
      Abstract: Repeat operations involving the aortic root, ascending aorta, and arch (proximal aorta) are technically challenging. These procedures are associated with higher operative mortality and morbidity. A dedicated surgical team with special skill set is essential to manage these complex patients. Redo root and proximal aortic procedures can be done with acceptable risk in most patients with attention to details involving the surgical procedure, patient selection, and perioperative management.

  • Redo Aortic Root Operations in Patients with Marfan Syndrome
    • Authors: Orozco-Sevilla; Vicente, Whitlock, Richard, Preventza, Ourania, de la Cruz, Kim I., Coselli, Joseph S.
      Abstract: Aortic root aneurysm is the most common cardiovascular manifestation requiring surgical intervention in patients with Marfan syndrome (MFS), a heritable thoracic aortic disease. Elective replacement of the aortic root is the treatment of choice for patients with aneurysmal complications of the aortic root and ascending aorta. There are two basic approaches to aortic root replacement: valve-sparing (VS) and valve-replacing (VR) techniques. After successful aortic root replacement surgery, several patients with MFS may develop a late complication related to their aortic disease process, such as developing a pseudoaneurysm of the coronary artery reattachment buttons, aneurysmal expansion, or aortic dissection in the remaining native aorta. These patients may also develop other late complications that are not specifically related to the heritable thoracic aortic disease, such as infections that can lead to dehiscence of some or all of the distal or proximal anastomosis. Because these complications are rare, the clinical volume of reoperations of the aortic root in patients with MFS is low, making it difficult to assess contemporary experiences with these procedures. Only a few published reports have examined reoperative aortic root surgery in patients with MFS, each of which had only a small series of patients. Herein, we describe our contemporary experience with reoperative aortic root replacement in patients with MFS and provide our operative approach for these uncommon procedures.

  • Endovascular Treatment of Various Aortic Pathologies: Review of the Latest
           Data and Technologies
    • Authors: Maeda; Koji, Ohki, Takao, Kanaoka, Yuji
      Abstract: The technologies and innovations applicable to endovascular treatment for complex aortic pathologies have progressed rapidly over the last two decades. Although the initial outcomes of an endovascular aortic repair have been excellent, as long-term data became available, complications including endoleaks, endograft migration, and endograft infection have become apparent and are of concern. Previously, the indication for endovascular therapy was restricted to descending thoracic aortic aneurysms and abdominal aortic aneurysms. However, its indication has expanded along with the improvement of techniques and devices, and currently, it has become possible to treat pararenal aortic aneurysms and Crawford type 4 thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) using the off-the-shelf devices. Additionally, custom-made devices allow for the treatment of arch or more extensive TAAAs. Endovascular treatment is applied not only to aneurysms but also to acute/chronic dissections. However, long-term outcomes are still unclear. This article provides an overview of available devices and the results of endovascular treatment for various aortic pathologies.

  • Long-Term Results of Endovascular Femoropopliteal Interventions
    • Authors: Hacker; Robert, Marone, Luke
      Abstract: Background and Objective Short-term results of endovascular intervention for femoropopliteal lesions have been extensively reported; however, there exists a paucity of long-term objective data related to outcomes of these interventions. We sought to characterize these long-term results including patency, limb salvage, and mortality. Methods From May 2003 to July 2009, all patients who underwent technically successful endovascular balloon angioplasty and/or stenting for Trans-Atlantic Inter-Societal Consensus (TASC) II B, C, and D lesions were identified in a retrospective fashion. Patient demographics, clinical characteristics, arterial noninvasive data, and angiographic anatomic data were evaluated. Results A total of 236 limbs in 186 patients (mean age 74, range 37–94) were treated. Lesion distributions by TASC II classification B, C, and D were 121 (51.3%), 37 (15.7%), and 78 (33%), respectively. Critical limb ischemia (CLI) was the indication for intervention in 42.4% of patients. Five-year primary and primary-assisted patency rates stratified by TASC II classification were B: 55.1%, 91.9%; C: 37.4%, 74.6%; D: 35.5%, 67%, respectively (p = 0.23). Secondary patency based on TASC II classification was B: 92.9%, C: 83%, and D: 75.9%, respectively. Univariate analysis identified age > 75, CLI, and cerebrovascular disease as predictors for loss of patency. Reinterventions to maintain patency were required in 26.5% of TASC II B, 43.2% of TASC II C, and 25.6% of TASCII D lesions (p = NS) and mean time to reintervention ranged from 22 to 29 months with no significant difference related to TASC II classification. A total of eight limbs (3.38%) were converted to open revascularization with two (0.85%) having a change in their initial preoperatively identified bypass target site. Three limbs (1.27%) required a major amputation during follow-up. Survival at 5 years was 44.3%; CLI and smoking were identified as risk factors for death (hazard ratio [HR] 2.6, 1.75–3.84, p

  • Vein Size and Disease Severity in Chronic Venous Diseases
    • Authors: Radhakrishnan; N., George, Deepu, Jayakrishnan, R., Sumi, S., Kartha, C.C.
      Abstract: Given the high prevalence of chronic venous diseases (CVD), defining criteria to screen patients who are in need for intervention is attaining primacy. An important clinical criterion for treating CVD is incompetence of larger veins. We have assessed the association of size of afflicted veins with disease severity in patients with CVD to define an acceptable criterion to identify patients who need intervention. Demographic characteristics and risk factors were recorded from 6350 patients. Based on physical examination and venous duplex ultrasound study, patients were classified into clinical severity, etiology, anatomy, and pathophysiology (CEAP) classes and grouped according to the size of the veins which had varicosities. Patients with reflux in smaller veins (vein size 4 mm diameter) as type II. Risk ratio was determined by multivariate regression analysis. About 47.67% of patients in this study were found to have CEAP class 3 disease. Compared with varicose veins of large truncal veins, patients with varicosities in smaller superficial veins had 2.85-fold (p

  • Different Manifestations of Rare Cases of Unruptured Sinus of Valsalva
           Aneurysm—Case Series and Literature Review
    • Authors: Pandit; Bhagya Narayan, Subramaniyan, Siva, Kumar, Tarun, Agrawal, Richa, Vatsa, Deepankar
      Abstract: Sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (SVA) is rare, and aneurysm of the left sinus of Valsalva is extremely rare cardiovascular disease. Clinical presentation can vary from mostly asymptomatic to catastrophic life-threatening emergency. We report four extremely rare cases of SVA with different manifestations of which one case involved left aortic sinus with large unruptured aneurysm causing severe mitral regurgitation (MR) and severe aortic regurgitation (AR). The second case aneurysm was from right sinus presented with trifascicular block with intermittent complete heart block (CHB). Third was a diagnosed case of unruptured right SVA and while awaiting for surgery he had sudden cardiac death (SCD) at home. Therefore, SVA can present from asymptomatic to life-threatening condition, such as SCD. To the best of our knowledge, there are individual case reports in literature, and this is the first case series of unruptured SVA in literature highlighting the rarity of this disease.

  • Procedural Results and Immediate Outcomes following De Novo Saphenous
           Venous Graft Interventions
    • Authors: Nemani, Lalita, Jyotsna, Maddury, D; Malleswara Rao
      Abstract: Background Distal embolization is the detrimental factor in SVG intervention. There is no specific treatment for it except prevention. Guidelines have endorsed the use of embolic protection devices; however, their use is not without complications, and increases the procedural time and cost for the patient.The objective of this study is to analyze the procedural results and immediate outcome in de novo SVG stenting. Methods A retrospective observational study of patients who have undergone SVG-percutaneous coronary intervention at our institute. Baseline clinical, demographic data, intervention details, and in-hospital events are analyzed. Statistical analysis was done using Mini tab version 17. Chi-square testing, odds ratio, and 95% confidence intervals were calculated. Results The study population included 96 lesions in 80 patients. Average age of the graft was 8.2 ± 4 years. Embolic protection devices were used only in 10%. Angiographic and clinical success was seen in 92.5%. Distal embolization was seen in 7.5%. Drug-eluting stent and shorter stents were associated with lesser distal embolization. Stent length (> 20 mm) proved to be an independent predictor of distal embolization. There was no correlation between distal embolization and age of patient, sex, hypertension, diabetes, and smoking, left ventricular function, age of graft, direct stenting, use of embolic device, and glycoprotein 2b/3a inhibitors. Conclusion De novo SVG lesions can be stented with a high rate of angiographic and procedural success. Stent length is the only independent predictor of distal embolization. SVG interventions can be safely done in the absence of embolic protection devices irrespective of the graft age.

  • Longitudinal Stent Elongation of a Tapered Lesion during Percutaneous
           Coronary Intervention: A Case Report
    • Authors: Matsumoto; Sen, Sakakibara, Masayuki, Nishikawa, Nagahiro
      Abstract: The therapeutic strategy for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of a tapered lesion is still being developed. Herein, we describe a 67-year-old man with stable angina who underwent elective PCI of a tapered lesion. The coronary angiogram showed diffuse, severe stenosis in the tapered left anterior descending artery. A third-generation sirolimus-eluting stent (2.5 × 24-mm Ultimaster, Terumo, Tokyo, Japan) was deployed, and the distal side was selected as the reference. Postdilatation with a balloon diameter 2.0 mm larger than the stent was needed because of the tapered lesion. We performed postdilatation from the distal side to the proximal side of the stent with a noncompliant balloon (4.5 × 8-mm Powered Lacrosse2, Goodman, Aichi, Japan). The final angiogram showed that the total stent length was 6 mm longer than the original length. Therefore, physicians should be aware of longitudinal stent elongation of a tapered lesion during PCI to ensure appropriate treatment.

  • Current Status of Arterial Revascularization for the Treatment of Critical
           Limb Ischemia in Infrainguinal Atherosclerotic Disease
    • Authors: Yuksel; Ahmet, Velioglu, Yusuf, Cayir, Mustafa Cagdas, Kumtepe, Gencehan, Gurbuz, Orcun
      Abstract: Critical limb ischemia (CLI) is the most severe form of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) that may result in limb loss and even death; thus, the fast and proper treatment should be employed as earlier as possible to prevent these catastrophic consequences. Arterial revascularization is almost always an indispensable treatment option for CLI. Although both endovascular and surgical revascularization procedures have an important role, nowadays, the hybrid revascularization as a combination of these revascularization procedures has also gained increasing popularity in the treatment of patients with CLI. This review provides an update on the arterial revascularization strategies for the treatment of CLI.
