Abstract

Purpose: To report the early results of use of the Endurant stent graft in the treatment of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs).

Materials and methods: Nine consecutive patients (seven men and two women; mean age, 76 y; range, 65-87 y) underwent endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) for a ruptured AAA with the Endurant stent graft between April and December 2012. EVAR was emergent in all cases. Early technical success, clinical success, major complication, and mortality rates were analyzed.

Results: Intraoperative immediate technical success was achieved in all nine patients. The 30-day clinical success rate was 67% (six of nine patients). The 30-day mortality rate was 33% (three of nine patients). During a mean follow-up of 6 months (range, 3-10 mo), none of the cases required reintervention; there was one late death attributed to probable endograft infection.

Conclusions: The short-term results of EVAR with the Endurant stent graft in patients with ruptured AAAs are encouraging.

Keywords: AAA; EVAR; IIA; abdominal aortic aneurysm; endovascular aneurysm repair; internal iliac artery.
