Epub 2016 Jul 26. The treatment for an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) mostly depends on how big it is. The influence of aortic dissection on overall survival showed a significantly lower survival for acute or chronic dissection compared to aneurysms and was lowest in acute dissection (P≪0.001, Fig. Variables evaluated were patient age, sex, NYHA class, study group (Marfan patients versus non Marfan patients), time of operation, type of dissection (DeBakey I,II or III, acute or chronic dissection or chronic aneurysm), different aortic locations, emergency operation, cardiac tamponade, bypass time, different methods of myocardial protection, operative techniques (composite graft versus non-composite graft surgery), arch replacement, aortic valve regurgitation, additional coronary artery disease, reoperations and recidives. 2019 Aug 6;12(3):118. doi: 10.3390/ph12030118. The in-hospital mortality rate was 60.4%, with a 30-day mortality rate of 56.3%. Increasing experience and the development of improved techniques like deep hypothermic circulatory arrest has been shown to be a safe and risk lowering method for aortic arch surgery [30],[31],[32],[33]. A recurrent dilatation of the ascending aorta occurred in one patient, 5 years after wrapping of the ascending aorta. Davies R. R., Goldstein L. J., Coady M. A. et al. Since the recidive rate strongly affects late survival as indicated in the univariate and multivariate analysis, the prognosis in MfS patients is primarily determined by the number of recurrent aneurysms or redissections leading to a further surgical intervention [18],[21]. The follow-up included a clinical examination, transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), spiral computed tomography (Spiral-CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Median survival of all patients was 13.1 years in group A and 20.1 years in group B. The estimated prevalence of MfS is one in 5000, of which at least one third occur in the absence of a family history and are thought to be due to sporadic mutations of the MfS-linked gene locus. Please enable it to take advantage of the complete set of features! An abdominal aortic aneurysm is an aneurysm (blood vessel rupture) in the part of the aorta that passes through the belly (abdomen). There are two main surgical procedures to repair a ruptured aneurysm: open surgery and endovascular aneurysm repair. 2014 Jan;18(1):143-4. doi: 10.1093/icvts/ivt455. In order to improve the prognosis in these patients, the incidence of acute aortic dissection and redissection must be substantially reduced. Repair of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm after cardiac arrest. Methods: Various causes of death were observed in group B, most of the patients suffered from deteriorating organ function. In group B, the majority of patients underwent Wheat’s operation (Table 2 ). The primary objective of this review was to assess the perioperative mortality and operative time of laparoscopic (total and hand-assisted) surgical repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) compared to traditional open surgical repair or EVAR. Yet, the major problem remains the rapid development and progression of aneurysmal dilatation. In group B, only 8 patients (3.2%) died, due to recurrent aortic disease (P≪0.001). doi: 10.1002/14651858.CD011664.pub2. After 1978, induced ventricular fibrillation with intermittent cold crystalloid cardioplegia (Kirklin) and more recently, blood cardioplegia in cases with reduced ventricular function and coronary heart disease was administered after cross-clamping of the aorta. Hollier LH, Plate G, O'Brien PC, Kazmier FJ, Gloviczki P, Pairolero PC, Cherry KJ. of the mean. The analysis of long-term survival and freedom from reoperation were calculated by the Kaplan–Meier method [17]. HHS In order to increase the tensile strength and to obliterate the false lumen in the dissecting aorta, we used various adhesives: Fibrin glue, which was firstly applied in 1982, was replaced by resorcin-chinin glue in 1993. Mortality rates and risk factors for emergent open repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms in the endovascular era. Epub 2013 Oct 20. Aortic aneurysms were present in 11 MfS patients (33.3%). Localized aneurysms of the ascending aorta were removed on cardiopulmonary bypass and moderate hypothermia (26–28°C). Would you like email updates of new search results? If your doctor suspects that you have an aortic aneurysm, specialized tests, such as the following, can confirm it. What is the Survival Rate Of An Aortic Dissection? J Vasc Surg . After a rupture of an abdominal aorta aneurysm the risk of death is approximately 80%. NLM For full access to this pdf, sign in to an existing account, or purchase an annual subscription. Also an emergency operation was a significant predictor for overall survival in the multivariate analysis. It increases each year and occurrence of further rupture increases the death rate. Five Marfan patients (15.2%) and 51 patients of group B (17.1%) died within the first 30 days after operation of the thoracic aorta. Abdominal aortic aneurysms usually do not have symptoms, but a pulsating sensation in the abdomen and/or the back has been described. According to statistics, at least 20% of the patients die before they reach the hospital. Using Bentall’s procedure, Gott et al. In the present study, 3 out of 8 patients, who received separate replacement of the aortic valve and ascending aorta as described by Wheat, and 1 patient with wrapping of the ascending aorta, developed recurrent aneurysmal dilatation of the ascending aorta at the sinus valsalva level following reoperation. The mean age at the time of first surgical intervention in MfS was 34.2±9 years (range 19–54), which is significantly lower compared to not MfS related cases with a mean age of 54±13 years (range 9–76; P=0.0001). However, complex aortic surgery in the elderly and specifically whether there should be a cut-off age for aortic surgery remains debatable. Information concerning aortic dissection or dilatation was obtained from preoperative and postoperative aortic imaging studies. 2014 May 19;1(4):207-213. doi: 10.1002/ams2.42. A total of 22 reoperations was performed in 11 MfS patients because of complications related to the primary operation, redissection, new aneurysm formation or other reasons as shown in Table 5 . In conclusion, the surgical treatment of aneurysms of the thoracic aorta in MfS-patients is associated with a considerably higher risk of redissection and recurrent aneurysm compared to other etiologies of aortic disease. Five MfS patients (15.2%) and 50 patients (16.8%) of group B presented with aortic arch involvement. J Vasc Surg. Data was analyzed by both univariate and multivariate analysis. 2011 Dec;23(4):274-9. doi: 10.1177/1531003511408737. Who is a good candidate for surgery? Cochrane Database Syst Rev. According to the observation that β-blockers may reduce the progression of aortic dilatation, all patients with MfS should receive prophylactic β-adrenergic blockade. There has been much discussion in the literature of factors that affect the mortality rate of patients who undergo repair of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms. Long-term survival (Kaplan–Meier) according to type of diagnosis: patients with aortic aneurysms (crosses), chronic (squares) and acute dissections (circles). 2 ). Further studies should be directed to optimizing preoperative resuscitation. To identify the factors affecting the high mortality rates associated with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), a review was made of the records of 81 patients treated surgically between 1972 and 1983. To date, the best predictor is the dynamics of aortic root dilatation [36]. Marfan syndrome (MfS) is an autosomal dominant inherited connective tissue disorder with variable phenotypic expression of cardiovascular, ocular and musculoskeletal manifestations [1]. Cardiovascular complications such as dissection or rupture of aortic aneurysms are the most common cause of death in patients with Marfan syndrome (MfS) [9],[10],[11],[18], reducing the life expectancy of these patients to 32 years when left untreated [11],[22],[23],[24]. National Center for Biotechnology Information, Unable to load your collection due to an error, Unable to load your delegates due to an error. Clipboard, Search History, and several other advanced features are temporarily unavailable. Severe mitral valve insufficiency was present in 2 patients. There were no deaths in group A and 7 deaths (6.9%) in group B patients, who underwent elective surgery. If the aorta exceeds 5 cm or significant aortic regurgitation develops, we recommend prophylactic surgery, even if the patient is asymtomatic. In group B, reoperations were significantly less frequent (10.7%) compared to MfS patients (66.7%; P≪0.001). A total of 22 reoperations were performed in 11 MfS patients, 17 reoperations were due to recurrent aortic diseases. In one patient, vascular graft replacement was combined with valve resuspension. A number of surgical techniques for treatment of aortic aneurysms and dissections in MfS patients have been applied, resulting in a considerable variation of long-term results. 3 ). Abdominal aortic aneurysms are fairly common and can be life-threatening if not treated immediately. Crawford recommended surgical treatment, if the external diameter exceeded 5 cm [22]. Setting: Western Australia.  |  Researchers found no significant differences in … Long-term survival (Kaplan–Meier) in relation to the surgical technique used: composite graft (crosses) versus other procedures (squares). During the past 20 years, three different methods of myocardial protection were employed: Between 1975 and 1977, induced ventricular fibrillation with moderate systemic hypothermia (26–28°C) was used. And if surgical repair is advised, don’t put it off. Many patients with a slow-growing aortic aneurysm never undergo surgery but are monitored on a regular basis as a precaution to measure any growth. A total of 22 MfS patients had to undergo surgery due to acute (57.6%) or chronic (9.1%) aortic dissections. Aortic aneurysms were present in 11 MfS patients (33.3%). © 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved. Altogether, 11 patients (33.3%) with MfS and 62 not MfS-related patients (20.8%) were urgent, while 19 MfS patients (57.6%) and 135 group B patients (45.3%) had to undergo emergency surgical intervention. Thus, MfS was not a risk factor for early mortality. 2018 Mar;70(1):129-136. doi: 10.1007/s13304-017-0488-y. We used composite graft replacement in 18 patients without any complication in this segment. Kouchoukos reported good results in 127 patients who had composite graft insertion. Acute dissections occurred in 57.6 (A) versus 37.9% (B). Epub 2019 Mar 21. Christian Detter, Helmut Mair, Hanns-Georg Klein, Carmina Georgescu, Armin Welz, Bruno Reichart, Long-term prognosis of surgically-treated aortic aneurysms and dissections in patients with and without Marfan syndrome, European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, Volume 13, Issue 4, April 1998, Pages 416–423, https://doi.org/10.1016/S1010-7940(98)00043-8. In contrast, Pyeritz demonstrated that even in aortas with a diameter of less than 5 cm, dissections may occur [25]. The current study evaluates long-term results of surgical treatment of aortic aneurysms and dissections in 331 patients, considering the particular situation encountered in MfS. Late survival after abdominal aortic aneurysm repair: influence of coronary artery disease. A more radical operation may therefore reduce the high rate of aortic recidives as well as the need for distal reoperations and lead to a decrease in late deaths [21],[22],[23],[24],[26],[27],[28]. Patients who have a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm should not be denied therapy on the basis of any specific set of preoperative factors. Freedom from reoperation (Kaplan–Meier) of patients with Marfan Syndrome (squares; group A) and patients with non-fibrillinopathic etiologies of aortic disease (crosses; group B). To assess the effects of laparoscopic surgery for elective abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. If the ascending aorta needs to be replaced, we recommend the composite graft technique and a more aggressive approach to reduce the frequency of distal reoperations. Moreno DH, Cacione DG, Baptista-Silva JC. Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) confers a survival rate superior to that of open surgical repair of intact descending thoracic aortic aneurysms, a new study suggests. The average diameter of the aorta immediately before surgery, measured by echocardiography or angiography, was 7.5±1.7 cm (range 5–12 cm) in group A and 6.9±2.1 (range 3–20 cm) in group B. What’s the best option for you? This survival rate remains constant whether the aneurysm repair is elective or the aneurysm has ruptured. Multiple aortic operations at different sections of the aorta are characteristic in MfS patients, an observation which has been described earlier [34],[35]. J Vasc Surg. [1]Aortic aneurysms are classified as abdominal (the majority) or thoracic. 2016 May 13;(5):CD011664. 2019 Jun;24(3):224-229. doi: 10.1177/1358863X19829226.

Despite the higher incidence of aortic dissection and limited preoperative functional status (NYHA class) in Marfan patients, the early mortality of these patients was similar to that in patients without MfS [18],[37]. A total of 29 patients in group B and 3 patients in the MfS group underwent concomitant operative procedures. Of MfS patients, 33.3% were classified as DeBakey type I, 24.2% as type II and 9.1% as type III. Another MfS patient, whose aortic arch was replaced 3 years after replacement of the ascending aorta, developed progressive aneurysmal dilatation of the descending aorta from 4 to 7.2 cm in diameter within 6 months, leading to a second reoperation. This study aims to compare long-term results of surgically treated aortic aneurysms and dissections in patients with and without MfS in respect to early and late prognosis. Emergency median sternotomy and cardiopulmonary bypass during ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. Up to now, more than 70 mutations in the FBN 1 gene have been described in association with MfS.

Matrix Metalloproteinase in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm and Aortic Dissection. Objective: To determine the long term relative survival of all patients who had surgery for abdominal aortic aneurysm in Western Australia during 1985-94. Journal of Vascular Surgery. These findings suggest that the factors (loss of consciousness, creatinine level, hemoglobin level) that are predictive of death may be a reflection of shock in this patient population. NIH Follow-up data were available in all patients, representing 199 patient years in group A and 1726 patient years in group B. Surgery for acute dissection of ascending aorta: should the arch be included? Further cardiac reinterventions are listed in Table 5. Thoracic aneurysms occur above the diaphragm, including in the ascending aorta, the aorta arch and the descending thoracic aorta. Fig. Recent risk factors for open surgical mortality in patients with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. Patients with NYHA I were offered surgery because of an increased risk for aortic rupture. Ten years after open AAA repair, the overall survival rate was 59 %. The Society for Vascular Surgery practice guidelines on the care of patients with an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Since aortic dilatation frequently leads to dissection, early diagnosis and preventive surgical treatment must be a major goal in MfS patients. Eliason: Patients considered good surgical candidates are those who are able to perform normal daily activities independently and are either never smokers or quit cigarettes a long time ago. 2016 Nov;64(5):1497-1502. doi: 10.1016/j.jvs.2016.05.085. In addition, patients with acute dissection showed a significantly lower overall survival as well as a higher early mortality rate. When and how to include arch repair in patients with acute dissections involving the ascending aorta, Marfan’s Syndrome: natural history and long-term follow-up of cardiovascular involvement, Eleven-year experience with composite graft replacement of the ascending aorta and aortic valve, Surgical treatment of aneurysm and/or dissection of the ascending aorta, transverse aortic arch, and ascending aorta and transverse aortic arch. Growth rate of >0.5 cm/y when the ascending aorta is <5.0 cm in diameter. [Medline] . One patient in group A received a coronary artery bypass graft, 2 patients a mitral valve replacement. Risk factors were evaluated for early and late mortality, as well as for overall survival by univariate and multivariate analysis. The survival rates after 5, 10 and 15 years in group A were 82±7, 60±11 and 30±22%, respectively, in group B 75±3, 69±3 and 64±4%. Continuous data were analysed using the Mann–Whitney U-test, categorial data using χ2-test. Multivariate analysis showed that emergency operation was a significant predictor for overall survival, recidive for late mortality. On a multivariate analysis, preoperative factors of loss of consciousness, a lowest preoperative systolic blood pressure less than 90 mm Hg, a hemoglobin level less than 10 g/dl, and a creatinine level greater than 1.5 mg/dl were predictive of death. Design: Population based study. It furthers the University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide, This PDF is available to Subscribers Only.  |  This test is most commonly used to diagnose abdominal aortic aneurysms. In contrast, there was no difference between the incidence of aneurysms versus dissections in group B (Table 1 ). Survival and follow-up information was obtained by telephone interview or correspondence with the patients and their family practitioners, followed by a detailed examination in the hospital. Garland BT, Danaher PJ, Desikan S, Tran NT, Quiroga E, Singh N, Starnes BW. Considering the very high reoperation rate in our MfS patients and the rapid development and progression of aneurysmal dilatation, we require clinical follow-up by monitoring of the entire aorta at least twice a year. Maguire EM, Pearce SWA, Xiao R, Oo AY, Xiao Q. Topical application of cold saline solution (4°C) was used for myocardial protection. On average, patients who underwent repair for a ruptured aneurysm lived 5.4 years after surgery. Most patients die before reaching hospital, but if the surgery is successful, the survival rate can reach 50%. This is presumably caused by the better health status and the significantly lower age of these patients, which may nullify the higher surgical risk associated with the more fragile aorta of MfS patients. In order to reduce the high reoperation rate in MfS patients, frequent clinical follow-up may contribute to improve life expectancy in MfS patients. Subjects: All patients who had had surgery for abdominal aortic aneurysm in Western Australia during 1985-94. How is surgery for a thoracic aortic aneurysm completed? Among the multiple clinical manifestations of MfS, involvement of the cardiovascular system such as dilatation, rupture and dissection of the aorta are the leading cause of premature death in these patients [1],[10]. In 1989, Crawford and colleagues [3] found the 30-day surgical mortality rate in a series of 717 patients who had undergone surgery of the Additionally, the absence of the treatment leads to 3%/h mortality rate within the first 24 hours. These data were expressed as the mean±S.E. For graft insertion, the open technique was used. The 10-year survival rate after the repair of an aortic aneurysm is 59 percent, as the National Center for Biotechnology Information reports. Three MfS patients (9.1%) and 101 patients (33.9%) in group B underwent elective surgery. 1. In MfS patients, we did not use any repair because of the fragile aortic tissue. To evaluate long-term survival in relation to preoperative risk factors, we reviewed 1112 patients undergoing abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair from 1970 to 1975.
