AbstractStent-assisted coiling is an endovascular means of managing wide-necked bifurcation aneurysms. In spite of the wide availability of various newer devices in managing such difficult aneurysms, the Y stenting offers a safe and cost-effective alternative to treat such cases in resource poor settings. This article provides an insight of our initial six cases of Y stent-assisted coiling along with their follow-up over a period of 6 months with no recanalization in any case. It also highlights the various technical aspects involved in such cases. One case had recurrent subdural hematoma probably due to use of antiplatelets and another patient had sudden dip in level of consciousness probably due to hematoma expansion that might also have been due to antiplatelet usage. However, none of the cases had any issues regarding stent migration, malapposition, and dissection. In our experience, Neuroform Atlas stent used for Y stenting offers a safe and technically easy alternative to various newer bifurcation devices.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the change in the diameter of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) sacs after endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) in Taiwanese patients and to depict its association with clinical outcomes. Materials and Methods: This retrospective cohort study was conducted on patients who underwent EVAR for infrarenal AAA between January 2011 and December 2016. All preoperative and follow-up computed tomography (CT) images were reviewed. Postoperative CT angiography was arranged after 1 month and annually thereafter. The maximal diameter on the axial plane and the maximal diameter perpendicular to the centerline on the coronal and sagittal planes were measured. The study examined post-EVAR sac diameter change over time and compared the differences in adverse events (AEs) among groups. Results: The survey included a total of 191 patients with a median follow-up duration of 2.5 (interquartile range: 1.1–2.9) years. Overall survival rates at 1, 2, and 5 years were 92%, 81%, and 76%, respectively. According to their last CT scans, the patients were categorized into 3 groups as follows: shrinkage, stationary, and enlargement, which comprised 58 (30.4%), 118 (61.8%), and 15 (7.9%) patients, respectively. Pre-EVAR characteristics and sac diameters were similar among the groups. Sac shrinkage was exclusively observed in the first 2 years, whereas sac enlargement developed at all follow-up periods. Patients with sac enlargement had higher incidence rates of endoleaks, complications, and reintervention than the other groups. Conclusion: Based on our observations, post-EVAR sac shrinkage only occurs in the first 2 years; however, post-EVAR sacs may enlarge at any point and even after 5 years. In our study, patients with sac enlargement had higher rates of adverse events and reintervention.
