AAA (Abdominal aortic aneurysm)

Find all the latest content on abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) published on this website.

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…

New ESC/ESVS Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peripheral Arterial Diseases (PAD)

06 Sep 2017

The new joint ESC/ESVS guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peripheral Arterial Diseases (PAD) have been profoundly updated thanks to the active collaboration between the European Society of Cardiology and the European Society for Vascular Surgery. In this document, the term ‘peripheral arterial diseases’ encompasses all arterial diseases other than coronary arteries and the aorta. In particular, the document addresses only PADs secondary to atherosclerosis, with a few exceptions in specific areas where nonatherosclerotic diseases are a frequent differential diagnosis (e.g. fibromuscular dysplasia in renal arteries) .

Fully percutaneous abdominal aortic aneurysm treatment

10 Jul 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017

With aging populations, the prevalence of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is increasing. New technologies promise successful, fully percutaneous treatments of AAA which can patient benefit a majority of patients and these treatment should find their natural place in the work of all interventional cardiologists. Learn how – and why – in this conversation with P. Musialek, E. Vuruskan and A. Cremonesi as they discuss such points as imaging tools and the selection criteria such as anatomy that allow you to match the ideal patient with available devices and techniques. With up to 80% of patients eligible for these treatments today, shouldn’t you watch now?

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.
