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


Lachat, Mario L; 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.
