The persistent sciatic artery (PSA) is a remnant of the fetal circulatory system that is preserved in less than 0.1% of the population. Up to 60% of patients with this vascular anomaly will go on to development of a PSA aneurysm (PSAA), which can produce a variety of symptoms including neuropathy, claudication, and acute limb-threatening ischemia. Historical management is by open operation and interposition grafting, which can be highly morbid. We describe successful management of a large, symptomatic PSAA by endovascular stent-grafting with intermediate term follow-up.

Subclavian artery aneurysms (SAAs) are historically rare peripheral aneurysm. However, it can be associated with serious life-threatening complications including rupture, thrombosis, and embolism. The...
Behçet's disease is a rare, chronic, relapsing condition comprising multisystemic inflammatory dysfunction, whereas subclavian artery aneurysm is a rare peripheral atherosclerotic aneurysm that has a...
Diabetes mellitus is associated with both microvascular and macrovascular complications, which can result in visceral aneurysms as for example splenic artery aneurysms: in their management, an endovas...
Heparic artery aneurysm is rare, but appropriate treatment is mandatory. We report a 50-year-old woman with an asymptomatic large hepatic artery aneurysm. The aneurysm was found as a result of abdomin...
The goals of surgical treatment of traumatic femoral artery aneurysm are to isolate and excise the aneurysm, prevent distal embolization and allow effective revascularization. During recent years, end...
To describe the safety, possible complications and technical success of different technical methods and different embolic materials in the endovascular management of visceral artery aneury...
The purpose of this trial is to assess whether the new endovascular repair technique of the abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is an adequate substitute of the conventional AAA repair.
The management of patients with unruptured aneurysms is controversial. Patients with unruptured aneurysms may suffer intracranial hemorrhage, but the incidence of this event is still debat...
After endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, life-long follow-up is needed to monitor the effectiveness of exclusion of the aneurysm sac from blood flow. For this reason, aneurysm ...
The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical outcome of surgical clipping and endovascular coiling for ruptured intracranial aneurysms not included in the original ISAT Study.
Postoperative hemorrhage from an endovascular AORTIC ANEURYSM repaired with endoluminal placement of stent grafts (BLOOD VESSEL PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION). It is associated with pressurization, expansion, and eventual rupture of the aneurysm.
Surgical excision, performed under general anesthesia, of the atheromatous tunica intima of an artery. When reconstruction of an artery is performed as an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ATHERECTOMY.
Splitting of the vessel wall in the VERTEBRAL ARTERY. Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the vertebral artery, aneurysm formation, or THROMBOEMBOLISM. Vertebral artery dissection is often associated with TRAUMA and injuries to the head-neck region but can occur spontaneously.
Endovascular reconstruction of an artery, which may include the removal of atheromatous plaque and/or the endothelial lining as well as simple dilatation. These are procedures performed by catheterization. When reconstruction of an artery is performed surgically, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.
The splitting of the vessel wall in one or both (left and right) internal carotid arteries (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL). Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the internal carotid artery and aneurysm formation.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
Acute Coronary Syndromes ACS
Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) is an umbrella term for situations where the blood supplied to the heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Treatment for acute coronary syndrome includes medicines and a procedure known as angioplasty, during which doctors inflat...
