Evolution of the false lumen after occlusion by a Candy Plug in the management of chronic aortic dissections

The persistence of a flow towards the false channel (FC) supplied with communications between the two channels downstream the aortic stentgraft is often observed after the endovascular treatment of chronic aortic dissections. This is often associated with the absence of retraction of the aortic dilation. We present the short-term results of the use of a system of occlusion (Candy Plug [CP]) of the FC, and its impact on the patency of the FC and the evolution of the aortic diameter.

Short and mid-term results of the STABILISE technique for type B aortic dissections: the thoraco-abdominal aorta treated with a bare stent increases in diameter

The STABILISE technique made it possible to extend the treatment of type B aortic dissections (AD) to the thoracoabdominal aorta by prolonging the covered stent with a bare stent which is inflated in order to reaffix the intimal flap and induce aortic healing. The aim of this multicentric study was to analyze the short and mid-term anatomical results on the thoracic and thoracoabdominal aorta of the treatment of ADs by the STABILISE technique.

Endovascular peripheral arterial surgery: ambulatory is safe!

In France, the vascular surgeons experience difficulties to switch to ambulatory for endovascular arterial surgery. Our objective was to evaluate the safety of the ambulatory management of the patients presenting peripheral occlusive arterial lesions (POAD) needing endovascular treatment.

Silent ischemic cerebral lesions after the endovascular treatment of the aortic arch

Recent publications reported a drop of the rate of clinically detectable cerebrovascular accidents (CVA) after the endovascular treatment of the aortic arch. However, no study evaluated the rate of silent ischemic cerebral lesions after these procedures. The objective of this work was to quantify these lesions.

Popliteal venous aneurysms: Retrospective monocentric series of 26 cases. Diagnosis, treatment and immediate and 4-year results

Popliteal venous aneurisms (PVA) are rare. Sometimes revealed by a thromboembolic complication, a deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and/or a pulmonary embolism (PE), they can be life-threatening. They are frequently diagnosed fortuitously during a systematic ultrasound examination for the assessment of chronic superficial venous insufficiency (CSVI). The aim of this study was to report the modes of discovery, the anatomical criteria, the methods of management, and the immediate and mid-term postoperative results in terms of patency or thromboembolic recurrence.

Symptomatic dissections of the superior mesenteric artery: the SURVI experience

The choice between a conservative attitude and intervention to manage the dissections of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) is based on a low level of evidence and a limited knowledge of the natural evolution of the disease. The objective of this study was to evaluate the characteristics of the patients and the clinical presentations, and the effectiveness of a medical treatment of first intention for symptomatic SMA dissections.

An original technique to create a brachial-basilic arteriovenous fistula

Several techniques were developed to create brachial-basilic arteriovenous fistulas (BBAVF). The objective was to present a novel method of superficialisation of the BBAVF and to compare this method to the other techniques described in the literature.

Mortality and active stents for femoro-popliteal lesions

In December 2018, a meta-analysis by Katsanos et al. showed a signal of mortality at two years in patients treated by active balloons and stents compared to bare devices. The authors analyzed in the same group active balloons and active stents. However the technology and the concentrations of paclitaxel differ between these devices. In this study we included the work of Katsanos et al. by individualizing the active stents group.
