Endovascular repair of the abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) with ultrasound guidance
Medical establishment affiliation: Stanford Medicine Authors : Pr AalamiTarget: Medical students Summary:
A man aged 65 arrives for an initial consultation, a check up for an asymptomatic AAA. The second consultation shows enlargement of AAA, which can lead to complications and requires surgery. The third consultation consists of the ultrasound-guided placement of a stent by the femoral route. The fourth consultation sees the patient in the Intensive Care Unit for post-operative follow-upObjectives:
Main objective: learning to use minimally invasive therapeutic options to treat abdominal aortic aneurysm
The abdominal aortic aneurysm
can be treated with an endovascular approach if the anatomy is appropriate. Ultrasound guidance can minimize complications
The purpose of this clinical case is to learn the conditions of use of the endovascular approach and to understand the benefits of ultrasound guidance and how to carry out this guidance through virtual reality.
