Abstract

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Bristol Heart Institute, The Bristol Royal Infirmary, Upper Maudlin Street, Bristol, BS2 8HN, UK. The effect of the underlying pathology on postoperative inflammation after stenting of the thoracic aorta has not been described. A retrospective review of patients undergoing thoracic aortic stents was performed. Patients with large degenerative aneurysms developed pyrexia and significantly raised CRP in the first 5 days after the procedure compared with the rest of the cohort. Endoluminal stenting of large degenerative descending thoracic aortic aneurysms is associated with post-implantation systemic inflammatory response.
