Endoluminal stent-graft relining of visceral artery bypass grafts to treat perigraft seroma


Lachat, Mario; Romero Toledo, Maricarmen; Glenck, Michael; Veith, Frank J; Schmidt, Christian A; Pecoraro, Felice (2013). Endoluminal stent-graft relining of visceral artery bypass grafts to treat perigraft seroma. Journal of Endovascular Therapy, 20(6):868-871.

Abstract

PURPOSE: To describe the endovascular treatment of intra-abdominal perigraft seromas associated with small-caliber expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) grafts.
CASE REPORTS: Two patients who underwent hybrid repair of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms in which renovisceral bypass grafts were implanted presented with large, symptomatic perigraft seromas. The 5- to 8-mm-diameter ePTFE bypass grafts believed to be involved in the seromas were successfully relined with self-expanding Viabahn stent-grafts in percutaneous procedures. The patients' symptoms were relieved, and imaging follow-up (18 and 10 months, respectively) has shown near complete resorption of the seromas.
CONCLUSION: It is expected that this minimally invasive technique could be very valuable in treating aortic, renovisceral, and peripheral perigraft seroma.

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.
