Purpose: To report the outcomes from the observational SURPASS registry, which was created to assess the performance of the Conformable TAG (CTAG) stent-graft with the Active Control System (ACS) in patients undergoing thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) in a real-world setting. Materials and Methods: The SURPASS registry (ClinicalTrials.gov; identifier NCT03286400) was an observational, prospective, single-arm, post-market, international study that enrolled patients undergoing TEVAR usi...

Introduction: The use of image fusion in the hybrid operating room is increasingly used. Image fusion enables physicians to deploy endovascular devices with a 3D roadmap of the vascular anatomy based on preoperative CTA or MRA. Previous studies described a decrease in nephrotoxic contrast volume, fluoroscopy time, radiation dose and procedure time in complex endovascular aortic repair (EVAR).1-4 However, there is no general consensus or guideline on the optimal technique and timing of image fusi...

Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are associated with overall mortality rates up to 90%. Despite extensive research, mechanisms leading to AAA formation and advancement are still poorly understood. Smooth muscle cells (SMC) are predominant in the aortic medial layer and maintain the wall structure. Apoptosis of SMC is a well-known phenomenon in the pathophysiology of AAA. However, remaining SMC function is less extensively studied. The aim of this study is to assess the in vitro contract...

Objective Catheter directed thrombolysis (CDT) for peripheral arterial occlusions is a well established alternative to thrombo-embolectomy in patients with (sub)acute limb ischaemia. However, protocols are heterogeneous and need optimisation to improve results and lower bleeding risks. The objective was to review the results and outcomes of different CDT protocols for patients with peripheral arterial occlusions. Data sources Electronic information sources (MEDLINE, Embase, Cochrane) and referen...

Purpose: To investigate in an in vitro model if secondary endobag filling can reduce gutter size during chimney endovascular aneurysm sealing (chEVAS). Materials and Methods: Nellix EVAS systems were deployed in 2 silicone juxtarenal aneurysm models with suprarenal aortic diameters of 19 and 24 mm. Four configurations were tested: EVAS with 6-mm balloon-expandable (BE) or self-expanding (SE) chimney grafts (CGs) in the renal branches of both models. Balloons were inflated simultaneously in the C...
