OBJECTIVES: The Anaconda fenestrated stent graft (Vascutek, Inchinnan, United Kingdom) is a new device that can easily be repositioned during deployment. This study evaluated its feasibility for treating abdominal aortic aneurysms with inadequate infrarenal sealing zones.
METHODS: Patients undergoing stent graft placement at two institutions in the United Kingdom were recruited.
RESULTS: A total of 12 visceral vessels were accommodated with 8 fenestrations for renal arteries and 4 superior mesenteric artery valleys/scallops in 4 patients. One type Ib endoleak was identified at the 1-month follow-up and successfully treated.
CONCLUSIONS: The Anaconda fenestrated stent graft device can be used for the repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms with hostile anatomy and has acceptable immediate and short-term results.
