Materials and methods: between 1998 and 2001, 27 patients with thoracic aortic aneurysm underwent stent-graft implantation.

In 3 cases, combined repair was carried out for a concomitant abdominal aortic aneurysm or aorto-iliac-femoral occlusive disease.

Abstract

Objectives: the combination of endovascular and standard surgical techniques may facilitate the management of complex aortic disease although the long-term durability of this approach needs to be confirmed. Design: a retrospective review of our experience in the treatment of patients with complex aortic pathology using a combined endovascular and surgical approach. Materials and methods: between 1998 and 2001, 27 patients with thoracic aortic aneurysm underwent stent-graft implantation. Eight required combined endovascular and surgical procedure because of complex pathology. In 3 cases, combined repair was carried out for a concomitant abdominal aortic aneurysm or aorto-iliac-femoral occlusive disease. In the other 5 cases, vessel relocation was performed to obtain safe landing zones: left subclavian artery to left carotid artery translocation in 3 patients, celiac trunk to superior mesenteric artery translocation in one and aorto-celiac-mesenteric bypass grafting in one. Results: one of the 8 patients died on 12th post-operative day of intestinal bleeding and bowel infarction. No neurological sequelae were reported. The other patients are currently well at 11 months mean follow-up time. Conclusions: simultaneous surgical and endovascular procedure is a feasible and may be a valuable adjunct to the treatment of complex aortic and peripheral vessel anatomy.
