Background: The endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is a successful treatment for aorto-iliac aneurysms. The success of EVAR is enhanced by the use of devices that maintain the patency of targeted arteries namely the iliac branch device (IBD) With this study we aimed to evaluate the association between the use of Jotec E-ventus during EVAR with IBD and prognosis in patients with aorto-iliac aneurysms. Methods: This is a retrospective, multicentric study enrolling patients referred to our Vascular Surgery Units from January 2015 to January 2020. All patients underwent EVAR with IBD using Jotec E-ventus as bridging stent. Primary endpoint was the development of types I and III endoleaks. Secondary endpoint was the onset of device occlusion with loss of vascular patency. Results: We studied 32 patients (mean age 71.7±4.5y). Of these, 25 patients were treated with standard EVAR procedure whereas 7 were treated with isolated IBD due to extension of disease involving iliac bifurcation. Median follow-up lasted 15[IQR11-27] months. During follow-up, incidence rates for endoleaks and occlusion were 3.98(95%CI 0.48-14.41) and 1.99(95%CI 0.05-11.12) per 100 pts/year. Conclusion: Jotec E-ventus during EVAR is associated with a low rate of severe complications in a small cohort of patients with aorto-iliac aneurysms.

Abstract

Background: The endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is a successful treatment for aorto-iliac aneurysms. The success of EVAR is enhanced by the use of devices that maintain the patency of targeted arteries namely the iliac branch device (IBD) With this study we aimed to evaluate the association between the use of Jotec E-ventus during EVAR with IBD and prognosis in patients with aorto-iliac aneurysms. Methods: This is a retrospective, multicentric study enrolling patients referred to our Vascular Surgery Units from January 2015 to January 2020. All patients underwent EVAR with IBD using Jotec E-ventus as bridging stent. Primary endpoint was the development of types I and III endoleaks. Secondary endpoint was the onset of device occlusion with loss of vascular patency. Results: We studied 32 patients (mean age 71.7±4.5y). Of these, 25 patients were treated with standard EVAR procedure whereas 7 were treated with isolated IBD due to extension of disease involving iliac bifurcation. Median follow-up lasted 15[IQR11-27] months. During follow-up, incidence rates for endoleaks and occlusion were 3.98(95%CI 0.48-14.41) and 1.99(95%CI 0.05-11.12) per 100 pts/year. Conclusion: Jotec E-ventus during EVAR is associated with a low rate of severe complications in a small cohort of patients with aorto-iliac aneurysms.
