AAA (Abdominal aortic aneurysm)

Here you will find all the latest content on abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.

With AAA counting for a large percentage of aneurysms of the aorta, the continued evolution in percutaneous approaches to diagnosis and treatment of AAA, such as refinements in imaging or endovascular aortic repair are welcome. To learn more about these recent advances whether in adjunctive pharmacotherapy, bleeding risks or the latest surgical approaches, to understand vascular access, prosthesis, devices and techniques, look here…

EuroPCR 2017 Highlights: Peripheral Interventions

20 May 2017 From EUROPCR 2017

Atherosclerosis might be the same disease wherever it is found, our endovascular procedures may be similar, but the target organs are different – what do you need to know?  Join M. Roffi and P. Musialek as they look at endovascular treatments in the common femoral artery, the role of drug-eluting balloons, reconstruction of an abdominal aortic aneurysm or complex aortoiliac endovascular repair and carotid artery stenting with the new generation of distal protection devices...

How should I treat renal artery in-stent restenosis and stent fracture after endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair?

30 Apr 2017

A 68-year-old man with a history of prior endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, with recurrent flash pulmonary oedema and renal artery revascularisation including redo renal artery interventions for in-stent restenosis, presented with renal failure, severe uncontrolled high blood pressure and left renal stent fracture. The patient was prepared for a third renal revascularisation procedure.

EuroPCR 2016 Highlights: Peripheral Interventions

From EUROPCR 2016

Is this the year of carotid artery stenting in stroke prevention? Find out the answer as A. Sauguet and A. Cremonesi discuss the highlights of this increasingly mature and innovative EuroPCR track. Other questions touch on whether a fully percutaneous approach to the treatment of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms is feasible, or where we stand today on interventional treatments at the femoral-popliteal or below-the-knee level.
