OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to compare the perioperative and midterm results of Zenith Bifurcated Iliac Side (ZBIS; Cook Medical, Bloomington, Ind) and Gore Iliac Branch Endoprosthesis (IBE; W. L. Gore & Associates, Flagstaff, Ariz) iliac branch devices (IBDs) in treatment of dilated iliac bifurcations in patients with similar anatomic and clinical preoperative features. METHODS: Between July 2007 and May 2018, 190 IBDs were implanted at two high-volume Italian vascular and endovascular centers. Among the series, preoperative propensity score matching based on preoperative anatomic and clinical factors was performed, and two homogeneous groups were created: group 1, 35 Cook ZBIS IBD implants; and group 2, 35 Gore IBE devices. Early results were analyzed in terms of technical success, death, conversion to open surgery, and occurrence of major local and systemic complications. Follow-up results were analyzed in terms of patency of the IBD, freedom from type I and type III endoleaks, aneurysm-related reintervention, and aneurysm-related death. RESULTS: Technical success was achieved in all implants from both groups. Perioperative IBD-related complications and major complications occurred in one case from group 1 (P = .49). No perioperative mortality was recorded in the two groups. Mean postoperative follow-up was 46.7 months in group 1 (standard deviation, ± 36.3) and 20.8 months in group 2 (standard deviation, ± 15.9; P < .0001). None of the IBDs or target hypogastric arteries occluded during follow-up in this series. Estimated 36-month freedom from type I and type III endoleaks was 97% (standard error [SE], 0.03) in group 1 and 87% (SE, 0.09) in group 2 (P = .34; log-rank, 0.9). Estimated freedom from IBD-related reintervention was 97% (SE, 0.03) in group 1 and 93% (SE, 0.06) in group 2 (P = .81; log-rank, 0.05). The estimated rates of overall survival at 36 months from the IBD implantation were 95% (SE, 0.04) in group 1 and 88% (SE, 0.08) in group 2 (P = .03; log-rank, 4.7); freedom from aneurysm-related death was 100% in group 1 and 93% (SE, 0.06) in group 2 (P = .19; log-rank, 1.7). CONCLUSIONS: The propensity score-matched comparison between the Cook ZBIS and Gore IBE devices showed similar, satisfying perioperative and midterm results in the experience of two high-volume Italian vascular centers.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to compare the perioperative and midterm results of Zenith Bifurcated Iliac Side (ZBIS; Cook Medical, Bloomington, Ind) and Gore Iliac Branch Endoprosthesis (IBE; W. L. Gore & Associates, Flagstaff, Ariz) iliac branch devices (IBDs) in treatment of dilated iliac bifurcations in patients with similar anatomic and clinical preoperative features. METHODS: Between July 2007 and May 2018, 190 IBDs were implanted at two high-volume Italian vascular and endovascular centers. Among the series, preoperative propensity score matching based on preoperative anatomic and clinical factors was performed, and two homogeneous groups were created: group 1, 35 Cook ZBIS IBD implants; and group 2, 35 Gore IBE devices. Early results were analyzed in terms of technical success, death, conversion to open surgery, and occurrence of major local and systemic complications. Follow-up results were analyzed in terms of patency of the IBD, freedom from type I and type III endoleaks, aneurysm-related reintervention, and aneurysm-related death. RESULTS: Technical success was achieved in all implants from both groups. Perioperative IBD-related complications and major complications occurred in one case from group 1 (P = .49). No perioperative mortality was recorded in the two groups. Mean postoperative follow-up was 46.7 months in group 1 (standard deviation, ± 36.3) and 20.8 months in group 2 (standard deviation, ± 15.9; P < .0001).
