Video: The Arizona Heart Institute Announces the Largest Worldwide Experience with Endoluminal Grafting to Treat Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms and Related Pathologies
Date:9/28/2007

ular disease. Clearly, the institution of endoluminal grafting represents a hallmark in the changing treatment paradigm for patients with potentially lethal and debilitating diseases of the thoracic aorta. Our team looks forward to continued research and scientific endeavors to hopefully, in the future, make inroads in the prevention of all cardiovascular diseases," continued Diethrich.

Study Details

From March 1998 to March 2006, repair of the thoracic aorta using an ELG was performed on 406 patients at the Arizona Heart Institute, including 324 patients receiving a commercially available FDA-approved implant with the remaining patients receiving investigational devices. Patient population included those eligible for open surgical repair and those with prohibitive surgical risk. The majority of treated patients had atherosclerotic aneurysms (157; 48.5%) and one quarter (82; 25.3%) had type B dissections. The remaining patients were treated for thoracic aortic pathologies including penetrating ulcers (34; 10.5%), pseudoaneurysms (26; 8%), transections (11; 3.4%), aorto- bronchial fistulas (9; 2.8%), aorto-esophageal fistulas (1; 0.3%) and embolization (4; 1.2%). One hundred cases (31.5%) were non-elective and 49 (15.1%) were ruptures. All patients received a follow-up evaluation at six months and yearly, with a follow-up range between one and 70 months (average 17 months).

The study results revealed the following:

-- Sac Size (only among aneurysm component): Preoperative aneurysm sac

size ranged from 5 to 12 centimeters, with an average size of 6.3 cm.

Sac shrinkage occurred in 65% (102 of 157) of patients. Average

postoperative sac size of 5.4 cm was noted in a mean follow-up of 20.4

months.

-- Endoleaks: Endoleak, or blood leakage around the ELG, creates

insufficient seal to the aorta wall. Four types of leaks have been

defined and range from type I (the most serious and requiring<
