Abstract Objective Aortic dissection is a dynamic process that can progress both proximal and distal to the initial entry tear. We sought to determine associations for development of proximal progression or new type A aortic dissection (NTAD) after acute type B dissection (ATBD) and its effect on survival of the patient. Methods We reviewed all cases of acute aortic dissection that we managed from 1999 to 2014. Univariate and bivariate analyses were performed to identify correlates of NTAD. Mult...

Background A single-institutional study comparing early and long-term outcomes of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) and open surgical repair (OSR) was performed to determine the appropriate treatment option for descending thoracic aortic aneurysm (DTAA). Methods Between 2005 and 2014, 438 DTAA patients were treated (TEVAR, 88; OSR, 350). Acute dissection and traumatic injury were excluded. Perioperative and follow-up data were reviewed. Stratified analyses were conducted to identify pa...

Marfan syndrome (MFS) is an inherited connective tissue disorder that is associated with arterial fragility and aortic pathologies. The endovascular treatment of patients with MFS is controversial. Published series suggest that while endovascular intervention can be carried out with a low rate of immediate morbidity and mortality, midterm follow up demonstrates sizeable numbers of complications. However, in certain situations—such as rupture, reintervention for patch aneurysms, and elective inte...

Background Despite recommendations for retrieval of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters, most are not removed in a timely manner. Longer IVC filter dwell times are associated with caval wall perforation and tilting that make percutaneous retrieval more difficult. Open IVC filter removal is generally reserved for patients with symptoms referable to the filter, such as chronic back and abdominal pain. We present our management algorithm and review of cases of open IVC filter removal. Methods Patients...
