We report a case of saphenous vein bypass aneurysm and arteriovenous fistula in a 65-year-old man, 20 years after an in-situ vein bypass for occlusive disease. He was found to have patent venous branches which kept the bypass open despite distal anastomotic occlusion. The saphenous vein was successfully excised without distal revascularization, due to sufficient native arterial flow. This is the first reported case of aneurysmal degeneration of an in-situ vein conduit with occluded distal anastomosis and pa...
Psychiatric complications after subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation (STN-DBS) in Parkinson's disease patients are common. The aim of this study was to evaluate a possible role of cortical thickness, cortical and subcortical volume for neuropsychiatric complications after STN-DBS implantation surgery. Twenty-two Parkinson's disease patients underwent STN-DBS. Control group consisted of 18 healthy volunteers who were matched by age and gender. All Parkinson's disease patients and control subjects under...
Bariatric surgery leads to several anatomo-physiological modifications that may affect pharmacokinetic parameters and consequently alter the therapeutic effect of drugs, such as antibiotics. The pharmacokinetics of oral amoxicillin after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery is unknown.
To assess the procedural performance and 3-years outcomes of unprotected complex bifurcation Left Main (LM) stenting using either Culotte or the novel nano-crush techniques, consisting in the use of two ultra-thin strut stents with a 1-ring stent crushed into the LM. We analysed the records of patients with complex distal/bifurcation LM disease and contraindications and/or refusal of bypass surgery, who from 1 January 2014 to 1 November 2017, received at operators' discretion LM double stenting by means of ...
Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) has been reported as an inflammatory cytokine in many inflammatory diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis and ischemic diseases. However, dynamic changes of MIF within the first 24 hours on admission and potential prognostic significance following ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) have been little known. In this study, we examined the dynamic change of MIF level and its potential diagnostic and prognostic value after the onset of STEMI. Plasma MIF le...
To identify the proportion of patients with retinal vein occlusion (RVO) with loss to follow-up (LTFU) along with potential risk factors after receiving an intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) injection.
Given the anxiety patients experience during angiography, evidence supporting the efficacy of music therapy during these angiographic procedures is potentially of clinical value.
Kawasaki disease (KD) is a potentially decapacitating multisystemic vasculitis with unknown etiology that acquired worldwide attention due to associated coronary aneurysms leading to life-threatening complications in very young babies including thrombosis, ischemia, and rupture. High levels of suspicion for early diagnosis and prompt treatment are crucial in preventing serious complications. We report here one of the patients who developed a giant coronary aneurysm but fortunately not a life-threatening com...
We report the case of a stent under-expansion due to heavily calcified plaque treated with the shockwave lithoplasty system. A 77-year-old woman underwent coronary angiography, and intravascular ultrasound revealed stent under-expansion due to calcified plaque. Shockwave lithoplasty balloon was used to disrupt calcium deposits around the stent, thereby allowing a correct stent expansion with an excellent angiographic and intravascular ultrasound result.
Transradial versus transfemoral intervention in non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention: the Korean transradial intervention registry of 1 285 patients.
Although the implementation of transradial intervention (TRI) has increased over the last few years, there are limited data on the impact of TRI on efficacy and safety in patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS). We sought to compare one-year clinical outcomes and bleeding complications of TRI with those of transfemoral intervention (TFI) in patients with NSTE-ACS.
This study describes a stepwise training program to teach a laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB). Results of a resident are compared to experienced bariatric surgeons (EBS).
The aim of this study was to compare the filling of the pilonidal sinus tract with fibrin sealant (FS) against tract excision and primary closure (PC) as the primary procedure. Details of all patients who underwent treatment for a symptomatic first episode of pilonidal sinus disease between January 2011 and December 2015 were prospectively recorded in a custom database. Patients underwent PC (n=17) or FS (n=17) according to patient preference. Prior surgical treatment and ongoing infection precluded entry. ...
To compare the outcome in patients with Fuchs Endothelial Dystrophy (FED) who underwent standard phacoemulsification versus Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Surgery (FLACS) in the treatment of visually significant cataracts.
Recurrence of sinonasal disease can be caused by many factors, including lateralization of the middle turbinate as a complication of endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). Different ESS procedures have been tried to prevent this complication. We conducted a prospective study to determine if medialization is an effective means of lateralizing the middle turbinate. Our study population was made up of 142 adults who underwent ESS from July 2013 through December 2014. A total of 235 sides were operated on; the middle ...
Elevated lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is an independent risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD). However, its role in real-world practice and implications for clinical care remains limited. Under investigation herein, are the clinical characteristics associated with increased Lp(a) levels in patients presenting with acute coronary syndrome (ACS).
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of the body composition changes on patients' long-term outcomes after endoscopic resection or surgery for mucosal gastric cancer.This case-control study included 96 patients who underwent endoscopic resection or surgery after propensity score matching. Areas of fat and muscle measured on CT were compared between the 2 groups. The effects of the variables on disease-free and overall survival were assessed using Cox-regression analysis and Kaplan-Meier surv...
The prognostic value of the preoperative albumin-to-globulin ratio (AGR) has not been investigated in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Therefore, we aimed to assess the clinical applicability of the preoperative AGR to predict the prognosis in patients with NSCLC. We retrospectively enrolled 545 patients with stage I/II/III NSCLC who underwent surgery at our institution. The cutoff value for preoperative AGR was calculated by using a receiver operating characteristic curve analysis. A low AGR was associ...
Bariatric surgery is an established treatment for obesity, but knowledge on the long-term incidence of revisional surgery is scarce.
Bariatric surgeries such as gastric banding (LAGB), gastric bypass (RYGB), vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG), and sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) decrease body weight in morbid obesity, leading to the resolution of coexisting diabetes mellitus and arterial hypertension in the majority of cases as well as improvements of renal function and liver steatosis. BS (LAGB, RYGB, VBG, and LSG) also reduce incident cases of diabetes, of cardiovascular diseases, and of cancer; these therapeutic and preventive effects on com...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is associated with increased risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) and studies with coronary computed tomography have suggested increased rates of asymptomatic CAD determined by the coronary calcium score (CCS) in these patients. To synthesize the evidence on this topic, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of the literature.
