Since India’s Sushruta (800-600 BC) first reported that "aneurysms can be cured only with the greatest difficulty", the majority of surgeons shared a fear of aortic surgery till the first half of the 20th century. The surgical treatment of AAA became available only in the second half of the 20th century. This presentation summarizes the most important historical milestones in AAA surgery.

In-vitro experimental investigation of different bridging stent-grafts for fEVAR

Giovanni Torsello (Vascular Surgeon, GER) presents and discusses with the experts the latest results from an experimental head-to-head investigation of different bridging stent-grafts (BSG) used in fenestrated aortic endografting.
How does the material respond to balloon dilatation? Which are the forces that might lead to the dislocation of the BSG from a fenestration? Endoleak of unknown origin after fEVAR: could be associated with material fatigue?
