The Lesions of the Cranial Nerves in Carotid Surgery Are Underestimated

31 October 2018 - 11:00pm
Beside cerebrovascular accidents, the most dreaded complication of carotid surgery, lesions of the cranial nerves and of the cervical plexus are very often underestimated and neglected in the preoperative information given to the patients, and sometimes initiate legal procedures. We evaluated prospectively the procedures occurring in our practice.

Prospective Multicentric Study of the Feasibility of Carotid Surgery without Drainage

31 October 2018 - 11:00pm
Determine if carotid surgery can be done safely without a suction drain.

Long-term Results of Angioplasty and Stenting for Radiation Induced Carotid Stenoses

31 October 2018 - 11:00pm
The treatment of radiation carotid stenoses exposes to the risks of surgical approach. Treatment by angioplasty-stenting of the carotid artery (CAS) is an alternative to open surgery. In a preceding study reported by the AURC, the absence of neurological accidents at three years was 93.1% and the absence of restenosis was 85.9%. The objective of this new study was to evaluate the long-term results of CAS in radiation carotid stenoses.

Is Conventional Surgery Obsolete for the Treatment of Carotid Radiation Stenoses?

31 October 2018 - 11:00pm
Conventional surgery is the treatment of reference in our center for carotid stenoses. An endovascular approach is recommended for radiation induced lesions because of the increased risk of cranial nerves lesions and of healing disorders. In spite of similar short term results, the rates of restenosis and the occurrence of neurological events are high during the follow-up of the endovascular procedures. The objective of this study was to report the results of conventional surgery for radiation induced carotid stenosis (RICS).

Hybrid Treatment of the Lusoria Subclavian Artery

31 October 2018 - 11:00pm
Lusoria subclavian artery (LSA) is a rare anatomical anomaly. It generally remains asymptomatic but can become complicated and require surgical treatment which is complex in case of association with a Kommerell diverticulum (KD) and/or an anomaly of the aortic arch. The treatment of reference was only surgical until the appearance of endovascular techniques. The objective of this retrospective and multicentric study was to analyze the results of the hybrid endovascular and surgical treatment of symptomatic LSA, whatever the anatomical form.

Carotid Crossover Bypasses Are an Effective Alternative to Angioplasty to Treat Proximal Lesions of the Supra-aortic Trunks

31 October 2018 - 11:00pm
Direct surgery of the supra aortic trunks through a sternotomy is results in high morbi-mortality, and the endovascular treatment results in high rates of restenosis and reintervention. Cervical carotid crossover bypasses constitute a simple option when the lesion is unilateral. The aim of this study was to report the morbi-mortality and the late patency of the crossover carotid bypasses made for proximal obliterating lesions of the brachio-cephalic arterial trunk (BCAT) or the left common carotid (LCA) artery.

Long-term Results of the Hybrid Treatment of Tandem Stenoses of Carotid Bifurcation and Supra-aortic Trunks

31 October 2018 - 11:00pm
The association of atheromatous stenoses of a supra-aortic trunk and the downstream carotid bifurcation (CB) is rare. The summation of the neurological risks related to the association of the two lesions located on the same hemispherical axis requires considering their simultaneous treatment. We evaluated the long-term results of hybrid surgery for the treatment of tandem occlusive lesions of the CB and the common carotids (CC) or the brachio-cephalic arterial trunk (BCAT).

Three-year Results of the Endovascular Treatment of Carotid Lesions at Risk of Stroke

31 October 2018 - 11:00pm
Percutaneous transluminal carotid angioplasty (CA) represents an alternative for lesions so called at risk. The objective was to evaluate the medium-term results of this technique in these particular indications.

Results of the Endovascular Treatment and Classification of the Coeliac Trunk Aneurysms

31 October 2018 - 11:00pm
To propose a classification for the endovascular treatment of the aneurysms of the coeliac trunk (CTa), discussing the results of our center in this pathology.

Evaluation of the Patency of Covered Stents in the Superior Mesenteric Artery: Monocentric Prospective Study

31 October 2018 - 11:00pm
Mesenteric ischemia is still a poor prognosis disease. The management of the patients with acute or chronic ischemia in dedicated structures made it possible to improve this prognosis. In addition, the advent of the endovascular techniques also contributed to the reduction in perioperative morbi-mortality, but to the detriment of the long-term patency compared to surgical treatment. The recent data of the literature show an advantage of covered stents compared to non-covered stents in several arterial localizations.

Does Undernutrition Have an Impact on Survival after Surgery for Chronic Mesenteric Ischemia?

31 October 2018 - 11:00pm
The patients treated for chronic mesenteric ischemia present a more or less severe undernutrition according to the delay before diagnosis and management. However the impact of undernutrition on their survival is surprisingly little documented in the literature. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of the undernutrition and its impact on the survival of the patients operated for chronic mesenteric ischemia.

Mini-invasive Surgery of the Aneurysms of the Hilum of the Splenic Artery: A Pilot Study

31 October 2018 - 11:00pm
Mini-invasive surgical techniques are particularly adapted to treat aneurysms in the splenic hilum. We developed a robotic technique with the Da Vinci system allowing treating the aneurysm while preserving the patency of the splenic artery. The aim of our study was to report the results of the robotic technique (RT) compared with the laparoscopic technique (LT) and its impact on the quality of life of the patient.

Evaluation of Covered Stents in the Treatment of Renal Arteries Stenoses

31 October 2018 - 11:00pm
This was a pilot study to evaluate retrospectively the feasibility and the patency of covered stents in patients treated for renal arterial stenoses and to compare them with a matched group treated with bare stent.

Preemptive Aorto-bifemoral Bypasses before Renal Transplantation. Results of a Multicentric Evaluation

31 October 2018 - 11:00pm
Patients candidates for a renal transplantation (RT) are increasingly old and can present severe aorto-iliac stenoses or calcifications. An aorto-bi-femoral bypass (ABFB) can be proposed to get an arterial axis donor. We retrospectively reviewed the results of these bypasses and the RT which followed.

Long-term Results of the Evolution of the Renal Function after Treatment of an Infrarenal Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: Open Surgery versus Endovascular Surgery

31 October 2018 - 11:00pm
The exponential development of the endovascular treatment of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms justifies the long term evaluation of the impact of the surgical technique on the evolution of the renal function. Our study aimed to compare the evolution of the renal function after endovascular treatment (ET) or open surgery (OS).
