OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to assess short- and mid-term results of in-situ revascularisation (ISR) using silver-coated Dacron prostheses and bowel repair for management of secondary aorto-enteric fistulae (SAEF).
DESIGN: Single-centre retrospective chart review.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: This study includes all the patients treated by ISR using silver-coated Dacron for SAEF between 2006 and 2010. Primary end points were mortality and survival rates. Secondary end points were reinfection-free survival and secondary patency rates.
RESULTS: Eighteen male patients with SAEF with a median age of 64 years were operated by ISR using silver-coated Dacron during the study period without operative death. The 30-day mortality was 22% and the in-hospital mortality rate was 39%. Indeed, during hospitalisation, a duodenal leak was observed in four patients including three who died. Four others patients died due to multi-system organ failure. Median follow-up was 16 months (range 1-66). The survival rate at 12 months was 55%. One duodenal leak was observed leading to death. The reinfection-free survival and the secondary patency rates at 12 months were 60% and 89%, respectively.
CONCLUSION: In-situ revascularisation with silver-coated Dacron provides acceptable results in terms of mortality. This treatment may be useful for simple vascular reconstruction and allow greater attention to bowel repair that is a determinant in short- and mid-term survival.
