The Durability of Handmade Fenestrated Stent Graft: The Assessment from an Extracted Endoprosthesis - Abstract
Physician-modified endovascular prosthesis has been developed to treat aortic disease in variable situations. However, the durability and long-term outcomes are criticized. Here we reported some cases, who were enrolled in our case series of handmade fenestrated stent graft in 2019 and 2020 [1,2]. The aortic stent graft was extracted from the patient during a conventional open surgery due to variable reasons, and the architecture of stent graft as well as the modification was intact. The durability of handmade fenestrated stent graft was therefore being investigated and confirmed.
