Endovascular stent-graft repair as a late secondary procedure after previous aortic grafts (Journal article)

Matsagas, M. I./ Anagnostopoulos, C. E./ Papakostas, J. C./ DeRose, J. J./ Siminelakis, S./ Katsouras, C. S./ Toumpoulis, I. K./ Drossos, G. E./ Michalis, L. K.

Thoracic and abdominal aortic endovascular procedures as alternatives to aortic reoperations were studied in three different cases. An anastomotic aneurysm after previous thoracic aortic graft for coarctation, a second-stage elephant trunk repair (descending thoracic aortic aneurysm), and a secondary aneurysm proximal to a previous abdominal aortic graft were successfully treated with endovascular stent-grafts. During the follow-up period no lethal events or major aortic or graft-related complications were observed, except a type II endoleak in the anastomotic aortic aneurysm case. An endovascular stent-graft can be safely deployed into a previously implanted vascular graft, avoiding repeat surgery.
