We report the case of a patient operated on for an aorto-iliac aneurysm with an aorto-bifemoral bypass who presented a metachronous iliac aneurysm rupture, six years later, because of aneurysmal degeneration. We performed bipolar ligation of the external iliac artery and an end-to-end anastomosis of the prosthetic limb to the common femoral artery. We discuss aneurysms of the external iliac artery, characterised by their rarity, their specific morbidity and mortality. [less ▲]

Background: This series aims to prove the positive impact of laparoscopic approach in aortofemoral bypass grafting. Methods : It concerns a retrospective non randomized study comparing 58 consecutive patients treated with laparoscopic procedure (n = 30) and with a standard open procedure (n = 28) in a single center. The different operating times, the complications and the follow-up of these two groups are compared Results : The demographics and angiographic data of the two groups were comparable. Operating time was longer in the laparoscopic group. However, we noticed a significant shorter hospitalisation stay (p < 0.0001) after the laparoscopic procedure with a mean 5.1 days. There was no significant difference of morbidity. Conclusion : We suggest that the trans-peritoneal approach is the best way in laparoscopic procedure in term of exposure and ergonomics. Laparoscopic aortofemoral bypass grafting is feasible, safe and effective. Shortening of operating time is observed as surgeon's experience grows. [less ▲]

Objectives : to determine the value of pharmacological treatment of type B aortic dissection (B AD) in face of new forms of treatment. Design : this is a retrospective study of the period from 1990 to 2000. Files of 81 patients have been reviewed and completed by questionnaires. Results Two B AD died after admission without any treatment, 10 were operated on with 7 discharged alive (group 1) 69 received hypotensive agents and beta-blockers, 65 were discharged alive (group 11). Late mortality of the group I is 3/7, not related with B AD. Late mortality after mean follow-up of 56.8 months is 27/65 with 4/27 related to B AD (4 ruptures, 2 operated on). Non fatal secondary surgery amounts 5 in 4 patients. Total B AD aortic events comprise 8/65 patients. Type A AD were operated on successfully (8 : 4 before B AD, and 4 after B AD). Degenerative abdominal aortic aneurysms were present, operated (9) or not (3), in the history of patients and 3 more appear subsequently. At 10 years, actuarial survival is 40% +/- 18. Conclusion : in non-complicated cases of B AD, medical treatment is a reasonable choice, provided that a strict follow-up of the thoracic abdominal aorta is performed. [less ▲]

Only few dissecting aneurysms type A survive without surgery. Opposingly, the dissecting aneurysms type B are successfully managed by the medical treatment "anti-impulsion". A personal series is reported, that evidence important cardiovascular mortality in the follow-up in chronic dissecting aneurysms type B; one part of this late mortality is linked to rupture of the thoracic descending aorta. Thus, the prevention of this late mortality depends on a strict follow-up of the characters and dimensions of descending aortic thoracic aorta. [less ▲]
