Outcome of Neonates with Vein of Galen Malformation Presenting with Severe Heart Failure: A Case Series.

08:00 EDT 10th July 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Outcome of Neonates with Vein of Galen Malformation Presenting with Severe Heart Failure: A Case Series."

Neonatal presentation of vein of Galen aneurysmal malformations (VGAMs) complicated by cardiac failure and pulmonary hypertension is frequently associated with a poor prognosis. Interventional neuroradiology with embolization can offer a chance for survival, although neurological damage can represent a limitation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Congenital arteriovenous malformation involving the VEIN OF GALEN, a large deep vein at the base of the brain. The rush of arterial blood directly into the vein of Galen, without passing through the CAPILLARIES, can overwhelm the heart and lead to CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE.

A compression of ILIAC VEIN that results in a decreased flow in the vein and in the left LOWER EXTREMITY due to a vascular malformation. It may result in left leg EDEMA, pain, iliofemoral DEEP VENOUS THROMBOSIS and POSTTHROMBOTIC SYNDROME. Compression of the left common ILIAC VEIN by the right common ILIAC ARTERY against the underlying fifth LUMBAR VERTEBRA is the typical underlying malformation.

A short thick vein formed by union of the superior mesenteric vein and the splenic vein.

The continuation of the axillary vein which follows the subclavian artery and then joins the internal jugular vein to form the brachiocephalic vein.

The vein accompanying the femoral artery in the same sheath; it is a continuation of the popliteal vein and becomes the external iliac vein.
