Cincinnati surgeons report new treatment for often-fatal injury

e defect to cause further complications," says Dr. Giglia. "Using a fixed stent provides an easy-to-see 'scaffolding' that can guide the surgeon to more accurately secure the extender cuffs and create a strong seal."

Once in place, the dual lining supports the weakened vessel walls and allows blood to continue flowing through the aorta without applying pressure to damaged area.

"Our method gives emergency surgeons a reliable way to repair difficult injuries with readily accessible materials," Dr. Giglia says. "More people can be treated--and potentially saved--with these minimally invasive techniques."

Standard "open" treatment for this type of injury can work, says Dr. Giglia, but it puts significant stress on the patient's heart and brain and increases the risk for heart attack, bleeding, paraplegia and other problems.

J. Keith Thompson, DO, and Amy Reed, MD, both of UC, were coauthors on this study.
