New techniques in endovascular surgery: Challenges for the anaesthesiologist?


Bettex, Dominique A; Felix, Christian; Lachat, Mario (2012). New techniques in endovascular surgery: Challenges for the anaesthesiologist? Anaesthesia International, 6(1):28-33.

Abstract

Minimally invasive techniques for vascular surgery as well as for other surgeries have been developed in order to reduce mortality, morbidity, ICU admissions, length of hospital stay and discomfort to the patient. During the past 15 years, several different kinds of endovascular aortic prosthesis (EAP) have been developed, leading to the minimally invasive surgery of the aorta or Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR). It began with the elective management of abdominal aortic aneurysm and has now found its way to the management of diseases of the thoracic aorta, as well as acute aortic pathologies like ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms, acute complicated aortic B-dissection and traumatic thoracic aortic rupture. Although initially done under general anaesthesia, the EVAR enables the use of local and regional anaesthetic techniques, especially useful for patients with limited respiratory reserve and poor haemodynamic.

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.
