Aortic rupture following an EVAR secondary to graft erosion


Banzic, Igor; Lachat, Mario; Rancic, Zoran (2016). Aortic rupture following an EVAR secondary to graft erosion. Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions, 87(4):783-786.

Abstract

Significant type 3 endoleak as a defect in the graft material, especially associated with endograft rupture, is a rare complication. A 68-year-old male patient with aortic plaque rupture was treated with endovascular graft placement. The patient was readmitted two years later with severe abdominal pain, a large retroperitoneal hematoma and contrast extravasation below the location where the aortic plaque had presented. Before an aortic infrarenal cuff could be placed during a control angiography, a large graft hole and a significant type 3 endoleak were observed. The sharp aortic plaque may have been responsible for the endograft tear. © 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

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.
