This study is a prospective non-interventional, multi-centre study of the Vascutek Fenestrated Anaconda™ system, and is essentially a post-market study. The Vascutek Fenestrated Anaconda™ system is a custom made device used for the treatment of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm.
This study aims to determine whether advanced MRI sequences can provide robust and clinically relevant information about abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). The MRI sequences will study outcomes related to blood flow inside AAA, microvasculature of the AAA vessel wall and intraluminal thrombus inside AAA. Robustness of these MRI sequences will be determined with testing of feasibility and reproducibility. Clinical relevance will be assessed by studying the association between the primary outcomes and disease severity. Disease severity will be expressed by AAA diameter. It is our hypothesis that these parameters are significantly related to disease severity and may therefore be future markers of disease progression.
Multicenter, single arm, open label, registry study with consecutive, eligible patient enrollment at each site. All subjects undergoing the Endovascular Aneurysm Sealing System (EVAS) with the Nellix®-System. Subjects will be followed procedurally to discharge, and as per institutional standard of care thereafter through to 5 years (total follow-up commitment)
Exercise testing is commonly being used in patients before surgery to test their overall fitness. One group it is being used in is patients who have an enlarged blood vessel in their stomach. This is known as an abdominal aortic aneurysm. The exercise test used is known as a cardiopulmonary exercise test as it looks at both heart and lung function at the same time. Whilst this test is commonly used there have been no studies (to date) which have looked at how reliable this test is; this means how well the investigators can obtain the same (or very similar) results after multiple tests. The investigators would like to test this reliability both between patients and the clinicians performing the testing.
Screening for an abdominal aortic aneurysm, monitoring its growth and evaluation of its risk of rupture are based on the measure of its maximum diameter. The abdominal aortic aneurysm's treatment to prevent its rupture is recommended from a threshold of 50-55 mm in men and of 45-50 mm in women. The importance of this measure for patient management justify a specific and homogeneous protocol of measure. However, the diversity of methods of measuring the maximum diameter with scanner and ultrasound was shown. The impact of various angio-CT based measures of maximum AAA diameter, and the impact of reproducibility limits on the decision to operate have never been investigated.
The purpose of this study is to examine the percentage of patients who present with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) will also have intracranial aneurysms (IA) and conversely; to examine the percentage of patients who present with intracranial aneurysms will also have abdominal aortic aneurysms.
This project is to determine the safety and explore the effectiveness of allogeneic (not cells of the participant but those of another human) mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) in decreasing inflammation and possible enlargement of the participants' abdominal aortic aneurysm. Participants will be selected as a possible subject because of an abdominal aortic aneurysm discovered on the ultrasound or computed tomographic ("CT") scan requested by the participants' doctor. The purpose of this study is to collect information that will be used to determine if MSCs can be used to decrease inflammation and possibly slow down enlargement of the participants' aneurysm. The investigators will also be collecting blood samples to study special inflammatory cells that cause aneurysms as well as asking participants to have a "PET" (positron emission tomography) scan that can measure inflammation directly in the participants' aneurysm.
This study will assess the safety and efficacy of systemic (IV) administration of escalating doses of allogeneic MSCs in modulating immune cell phenotypes and suppressing aortic inflammation in patients with small AAA. Subjects will be randomized in a 1:1:1 fashion to receive mesenchymal stromal cells (1 million or 3 million MSC/kg) intra-venously or placebo (Plasmalyte A).
The LUCY Study is a prospective, consecutively enrolling, non-randomized multi center post-market study to evaluate the low profile (14F) Ovation® Abdominal Stent Graft Platform when used in the endovascular treatment of female patients.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of preoperative remote ischaemic preconditioning (RIPC) on organ damage and the functional characteristics of arteries in patients undergoing vascular surgery. In addition, we investigate the connection between RIPC and changes in the functional characteristics of arteries and low molecular weight metabolites.
