Introduction: The aim of this study was to present the short-term and 2-year outcomes after use of the Bentley BeGraft as bridging stent-graft (BSG) for reno-visceral target vessel (TV) during fenestrated endovascular aortic repair (FEVAR) from a contemporary multicentric experience. Methods: A retrospective review of all consecutive patients who underwent elective FEVAR at 7 institutions located in Italy from 2015 to 2021 was performed. The main outcomes of interest for this study were technical success and TV instability, defined in accordance with current reporting standards. Patients' survival was also assessed. Results: Overall, 81 patients received elective FEVAR during the study period. Mean age of patients was 78 years, and 89% were men. Most patients were treated for a juxta-pararenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) (68%), and 23% had already received an infrarenal aortic reconstruction. Most endografts had 3-vessel or 4-vessel design (27% and 55%, respectively), and a Cook endograft was used in 73% of cases. Overall, 266 Bentley BeGraft were implanted, of which 44 (16.5%) in the celiac trunk, 69 (26%) in the superior mesenteric artery, 79 (29.5%) in the right renal artery, and 74 (28%) in the left renal artery. Technical success was 94%, with 5 instances of technical failure that were recorded and required an additional intraoperative procedure. The early mortality rate was 4%, and acute kidney injury occurred in 14 cases with 1 requiring definitive hemodialysis. Survival at 6, 12, and 24 months in the overall cohort was 98.8%, 95.3%, and 83.4%, respectively. Freedom from TV instability at 6, 12, and 24 months in the overall cohort was 98.4%, 97.9%, and 97.2%, respectively. Events of TV instability included 3 cases of type 1C endoleak and 3 cases of type 3C endoleak, while no events of BSG fracture or thrombosis were noted. Five out of 6 cases of TV instability occurred in renal arteries, and they were all successfully treated by endovascular means. Conclusions: The data from this multicentric study show favorable short-term and 2-year outcomes of the Bentley BeGraft as BSG for reno-visceral TV during FEVAR, with low rates of TV-related endoleak and no stent occlusion up to 2 years. Clinical impact: The data from this multicentric study show satsfactory outcomes up to two years of follow-up for the Bentley BeGraft when used for brdiging reno-visceral vessels during fenestrated endovascular aortic repair. Further research will be needed to identify predictors of stent-related reinterventions and ascertain the long-term durability.

Abstract

Introduction: The aim of this study was to present the short-term and 2-year outcomes after use of the Bentley BeGraft as bridging stent-graft (BSG) for reno-visceral target vessel (TV) during fenestrated endovascular aortic repair (FEVAR) from a contemporary multicentric experience. Methods: A retrospective review of all consecutive patients who underwent elective FEVAR at 7 institutions located in Italy from 2015 to 2021 was performed. The main outcomes of interest for this study were technical success and TV instability, defined in accordance with current reporting standards. Patients' survival was also assessed.
