Article title

Percutaneous Endovascular Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair Within the Infrarenal Region. Preliminary Report

Languages of publication
The aim of the study was to thoroughly evaluate the closure device ProStar XL in terms of its efficiency and safety in the percutaneous endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms in the infrarenal section of the body. Additionally, it was crucial to assess if there were any occurrences of regional complications at any step of the procedure. It was also important to stipulate the estimated hospitalization period as well as the overall cost of the PEVAR treatment with the use of ProStar XL.Material and methods. The analysis included 21 cases with PEVAR performed in the infrarenal region. The final success was achieved in 98.2% of the cases. One PEVAR case (that constituted 0.2% of this group) was unsuccessful because of the bleeding while the placement of the sutures with the use of ProStar XL was being performed.Results. This resulted in the emergency treatment of the CFA with the continuous stitch (Prolene 5-0). During the postoperative period the above described patient was given 2 units of the Packed Red Blood Cells (PRBC). However, this complication (unexpected bleeding) did not influence the length of the hospitalization period in any significant way.Conclusions. Percutaneous vascular closure device ProStar XL used in the treatment of the common femoral artery (CFA) constitutes a necessary and safe supplement for Endovascular Aortic Aneurysm Repair (EVAR). The implementation of ProStar XL closure device proves to significantly shorten the hospitalization period after the EVAR treatment. Additionally, the safety of the entire procedure is exponentially linked to the experience of the operating surgeon.
