Spontaneous pseudoaneurysm of a femoro-popliteal Omniflow(R) II graft treated with a stentgraft


Magnetti, F; Thalhammer, C; Hechelhammer, L; Husmann, M; Pfammatter, T; Amann-Vesti, B (2010). Spontaneous pseudoaneurysm of a femoro-popliteal Omniflow(R) II graft treated with a stentgraft. VASA, 39(2):196-198.

Abstract

We report the case of a symptomatic spontaneous leak of a biosynthetic graft (Omniflow(R) II) treated endovascularly with a stentgraft. Potential degeneration of biosynthetic grafts with aneurysm formation is a well known problem with a reported incidence of up to 7 %. Implantation of a stentgraft for treatment of a pseudoaneurysm is a valuable treatment option in native arteries; however its use in Omniflow(R) II bypass grafts has not been reported so far. Surveillance of peripheral bypass grafts with duplex ultrasound may be helpful to detect morphological alterations of the graft.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
