Abstract

The purpose of this study was to review a single-institution experience with the Endovascular Technologies [(EVT) Menlo Park, CA] transfemoral, endovascular system of abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. This study was performed at a medical center participating in the phase 1 and phase 2 evaluations of the EVT device. We reviewed the 25 cases performed at our institution. The patient population consisted of 21 males (84%) and 4 females (16%), witha mean age of 73.4 years. A total of eight tube grafts (32%) and 17 bifurcated grafts (68%) were attempted. Twenty-two of the twenty-five grafts weresuccessfully implanted endovascularly (88%). Implantation failures were due to tortuosity or inadequate caliber of the iliac arteries, or incorrect positioning of the graft. The results show that endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms is an appropriate treatment for selected patients. Conversions to open repair have decreased as experience has grown; careful patient selection can minimize the number of unsuccessful implantations. Patient selection and accurate technique can also minimize the number of endoleaks.
