Abstract

Introduction

Open repair was considered for several years the gold standard therapy for the treatment of peripheral artery aneurysms (PAAs). However, with advancements in endovascular technology increasing attention has been directed toward repairing PAAs using an endovascular stent graft.

Methods

This retrospective study evaluated a cohort of patients after the correction of PAAs with Viabahn. Patients treated from January 2011 to January 2018 were assessed for all-cause mortality, amputation and the need for re-intervention. Data were extracted from an administrative database from a healthcare organization in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

Results

Fifty-two patients were included in the study (median age 69.1 years, range 15 to 90 years; male 63.5 percent), three of whom also received Viabahn for contralateral PAAs. In total, 84 devices were used (average 1.5 per PAA); distribution: popliteal and tibial arteries (n = 30; 57 percent), femoral and iliac arteries (n = 19; 37 percent), axillary artery (n = 1; 2 percent), splenic artery (n = 1; 2 percent), abdominal aorta (n = 1; 2 percent). After a mean follow up time of 1.98 ± 1.68 years, we observed death (n = 3; 5.8 percent), amputation (n = 3; 5.8 percent) and the need for re-intervention (n = 17; 32.6 percent) in 23 patients (44.2 percent). The combined overall survival for the first, second and third year of follow up was 70.2 percent (Confidence Interval [95% CI]: 58.9 - 83.6); 63 percent (95% CI: 51.0 - 78.0) and 57.3 percent (95% CI 44.6 - 73.6).

Conclusions

There are still several unanswered questions regarding the best approach for patients with PAAs. In the absence of well-designed clinical studies, the assessment of databanks on real-world patients may contribute to improve our understanding of treatment alternatives and provide guidance to improve current clinical results.
