Abstract

Objective: Stent graft evolution is often addressed as a cause for improved outcomes of endovascular aneurysm repair for patients with an abdominal aortic aneurysm. In this study, we directly compared the midterm result of Endurant stent graft with its predecessor, the Talent stent graft (both Medtronic, Santa Rosa, Calif).

Methods: Patient treated from January 2005 to December 2010 in a single tertiary center in The Netherlands with a Talent or Endurant stent graft were eligible for inclusion. Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms or patients with previous aortic surgery were excluded. The primary end point was the Kaplan-Meier estimated freedom from secondary interventions. Secondary end points were perioperative outcomes and indications for secondary interventions.

Results: In total, 221 patients were included (131 Endurant and 90 Talent). At baseline, the median aortic bifurcation was narrower for the Endurant (30 mm vs 39 mm; P

Conclusions: Evolution from the Talent stent graft into the Endurant has resulted in significant reduction of infrarenal neck-related complications; on the other hand, iliac interventions increased. The overall midterm secondary intervention rate was comparable. (J Vasc Surg 2017;66:735-42.)
