Abstract

Vena caval occlusion was evaluated in animal experiments. In five patients with thoracic aortic aneurysms, two balloon catheters were introduced via the femoral vein to the inferior vena cava and superior vena cava and inflated before stent-graft deployment. Aortic pressure and flow were immediately decreased, which minimized the downstream shift of the stent-grafts. Temporary vena caval occlusion is safe and effective for precise aortic stent-graft deployment.
