Technical note

Removing stent grafts and implications for putting them in

"Who will do my aortic surgery when my time comes" was a common refrain among my mentors, only half jokingly. Now, the question has gained a sharpness. I think the tide will turn and the kids will do fine, but we all have to do a bit of reclamation, or open surgery will become the habit of strange eccentric artisans. I recommend calling up the retired surgeon and inviting them in for conferences and cases. Reprint masterwork atlases like Wiley's. Connect with likeminded. Before it's too late.

Treatment of a type Ia endoleak with chEVAR: steps and materials

In this case, a type Ia endoleak after migration of a Talent endograft was treated successfully by chimney endografting. This case shows all steps of the procedure and describes the required materials (catheters, balloon catheters, bridging stent-grafts etc). The big challenges, in this case, were the angulated neck, the renal artery stenoses and the stent struts at the origin of the renal arteries.
