Turina, Marko Ivan; Shennib, Hani; Dunning, Joel; Cheng, Davy; Martin, Janet; Muneretto, Claudio; Schueler, Stephan; von Segesser, Ludwig; Sergeant, Paul T; EACTS/ESCVS committee, (2009). EACTS/ESCVS best practice guidelines for reporting treatment results in the thoracic aorta. European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, 35(6):927-930.

Abstract

Endovascular treatment of the thoracic aorta (TEVAR) is rapidly expanding, with new devices and techniques, combined with classical surgical approaches in hybrid procedures. The present guidelines provide a standard format for reporting results of treatment in the thoracic aorta, and to facilitate analysis of clinical results in various therapeutic approaches. These guidelines specify the essential information and definitions, which should be provided in each article about TEVAR: Definitions of disease conditions Extent of the disease Comorbidities Exact demographics of the patient material Description of the procedure performed Devices which were utilized Methods for reporting early and late mortality, and morbidity Reinterventions and additional procedures Statistical evaluation It is hoped that strict adherence to these criteria will make the future publications about TEVAR more comparable, and will enable the readership to draw their own, scientifically validated conclusions about the reports
