Abstract

Objective The objective of this study was to evaluate the anatomic feasibility of two off-The-Shelf fenestrated stent graft designs to treat juxtarenal and pararenal abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) Methods Digital computed tomography angiograms were analyzed in 520 consecutive patients treated by open or fenestrated endovascular repair for complex AAAs (2000-2012). The anatomic feasibility of two off-The-Shelf fenestrated designs, Endologix Ventana (Endologix Inc, Irvine, Calif) and Cook p-Branch (Cook Medical, Brisbane, Australia), was analyzed with the instructions for use (IFU) proposed by investigational protocols Results There were 390 patients (75%) with juxtarenal and pararenal AAAs considered potential candidates for one of the two devices. Proximal seal (>15 mm) was achieved in all patients with the p-Branch and in 61% of the patients with the Ventana stent graft (P
