Abstract

Modified Chimney Technique for the Emergent Treatment of Abdominal Aortic Graft Rupture: A Cardiologist’s Point of View

The Report describes the case of an emergent endovascular intervention due to the detachment of a graft previously implanted in the abdominal aorta for a ruptured aortic aneurysm. We managed this emergency with positioning of abdominal aortic endoprosthesis and protection of main visceral vessels. Recently, the use of the Chimney technique showed to allow a rapid management of abdominal aortic aneurysms along with the saving of important visceral vessels. We here report a case of a modified chimney technique that possibly will improve the long term vessel patency.
