Background(s):

The purpose of this proposed 15-minute oral presentation is to provide tips and tricks for advanced Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR) of aortic disease. Technical success of these complex thoraco-abdominal aortic repairs is often strictly dependent on a specific technical road map. The purpose of this talk is to present the most critical points each operator must keep in mind in order to increase the probability of technical success, divided into four separate categories: Imaging, Sizing, Anatomical contra indications not discussed in the IFU, and Device Design & Deployment.

Material(s) and Method(s):

Tips and Tricks for FEVAR/BEVAR/IBD EVAR will be presented with the help of procedural images, and animations, to firmly illustrate each point clearly and concisely.

Result(s):

Where available, procedural and follow up imaging of patients for which these strategies was used will be presented.

Conclusion(s):

The purpose of this proposed oral lecture is to familiarize the operator of the topics and tactics which he/she will need to bear in mind in order to increase technical success. The lecture is based on the assertion that each procedure has its own unique road map for success, and hence with consideration of these points, the probability for technical success can be significantly increased.
