Multiple periscope and chimney grafts to treat ruptured thoracoabdominal and pararenal aortic aneurysms


Pecoraro, F; Pfammatter, T; Mayer, D; Frauenfelder, T; Papadimitriou, D; Hechelhammer, L; Veith, F J; Lachat, M; Rancic, Z (2011). Multiple periscope and chimney grafts to treat ruptured thoracoabdominal and pararenal aortic aneurysms. Journal of Endovascular Therapy, 18(5):642-649.

Abstract

The periscope and chimney graft technique provides a simpler, less invasive way to maintain blood flow to the renovisceral arteries during urgent endovascular aortic repairs. The very low 30-day mortality rate and the stability of the repairs in the midterm are encouraging. This technique has the potential to profoundly influence the treatment of acute aortic pathologies.
