Positional changes of an Endurant endograft leading to simultaneous ipsilateral iliac limb obstruction and contralateral type IIIa endoleak.

We report the case of a 79-year-old man who was admitted to our department with acute limb ischemia due to the occlusion of the left iliac limb of an Endurant endograft. The admission computed tomography angiography revealed also a type IIIa endoleak due to modular disconnection of the iliac extensions from the right iliac limb of the endograft main body. Intrestingly, during the four year post-EVAR period, an increased kinking of the right limb has been observed leading to an almost cross-limb configuratio...

Fewer Complications in the Obese Following Lower Extremity Endovascular Interventions.

The prevalence of obesity is increasing in the United States; however its impact on adverse outcomes in patients with peripheral vascular disease is not well studied. Obesity is associated with higher rates of complications following open bypass surgery, but limited data are available on its effect on endovascular intervention. This study aimed to identify whether obese patients suffer the same complications when undergoing lower extremity endovascular interventions.

Continuous blood glucose monitoring may detect carotid occlusion intolerance during carotid artery stenting.

The frequency of the occurrence of adverse events associated with carotid artery stenting (CAS) is usually low, but serious adverse events such as cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome (CHS) may occur. Real-time monitoring is ideal for the early detection of adverse events during the surgical procedure. This study aimed to evaluate continuous blood glucose (BG) monitoring for the detection of adverse events during CAS.

Laparoscopic resection of a middle colic artery aneurysm.

We report herein the successful laparoscopic resection of an asymptomatic 3-cm middle colic artery aneurysm in a young woman. Endovascular treatment represents nowadays the first-line option facing visceral artery aneurysm but, in this case, embolization was excluded because of hostile anatomy. Advantages of laparoscopic approach were the safe resection of the aneurysm with immediate evaluation of the bowel tolerance and the possibility of a histological exam of the arterial wall, without the disadvantages ...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of body weight on technical and functional outcomes of surgical treatment for NTOS.

Rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm in a young man with Marfan Syndrome.

Abdominal aortic aneurysms are very rare in Marfan syndrome. We present a case with a young non-smoking and normotensive male with Marfan syndrome, who developed an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm that presented with rupture to the retroperitoneal cavity causing life-threatening bleeding shock. The patient had acute aortic surgery and survived. Five months before this incident, the patient had uneventful elective aortic root replacement (a.m David) due to an enlarged aortic root. At that time, his abdo...

Renal Fenestration Closure Technique in fenestrated endovascular repair for para-renal aortic aneurysm.

To describe an endovascular technique to close a renal artery fenestration during fenestrated endograft implant for a para-renal aneurysm (p-AAA) without interfering with other visceral vessels REPORT: A 76-year-old-male with p-AAA underwent repair by a four fenestrations custom-made endograft. At the intra-procedural angiography, the right renal artery was occluded. In order to avoid a high-flow endoleak from fenestration, we performed the following technique: a 9F-steerable sheath was used to advance a 7F...

A custom-made Treovance® abdominal aortic aneurysm endograft to correct late failure of trombone technique with a tube endograft.

Unfavorable anatomy is one of the major limitations of endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) with specifically, adverse proximal neck morphology excluding many patients from receiving the standard endograft devices. Thoracic tube endografts have been used to overcome the issue of wide infrarenal necks, either as a sole device (single tubes or double tubes using the trombone technique) or as the proximal part of a bifurcated device fixed to the aortic bifurcation or infrarenally oriented. However, custo...

Surgical treatment of cephalic arch problems in arteriovenous fistulas: a center experience.

Cephalic arch problems, mainly stenosis (CAS), are a common cause of arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) failure and the most effective treatment is yet to be clearly defined. Restenosis usually occurs soon and multiple interventions become necessary to maintain patency and functionality. The authors present the experience of their center with cephalic vein transposition in a group of patients with different problems involving the cephalic arch.

Left brachiocephalic venous aneurysm: a rare clinical finding.

Brachiocephalic venous aneurysm is an extremely rare condition, with

Cryopreserved Homografts in Infected Infrainguinal Fields are Associated with Frequent Reinterventions and Poor Amputation Free Survival.

Single-length saphenous vein continues to be the conduit of choice in infected-field critical limb ischemia (CLI). However, half of these individuals have inadequate vein secondary to previous use or chronic venous disease. We reviewed our outcomes of infected-field infrainguinal bypasses performed with cryopreserved homografts (CH), a widely-accepted alternative to autogenous vein in this setting.

True aneurysm of the anterior tibial artery.

The majority of anterior tibial aneurysm cases described in the literature are pseudoaneurysms resulting from trauma1-6. Since 1967, only eight cases published on true anterior tibial artery aneurysms were atraumatic7-9,16,17. Recent experience with an atraumatic aneurysm of the anterior tibial artery prompted a literature review regarding their incidence, and accordingly, we feel the need exists for greater recognition and understanding of this entity.

Identification of anatomical risk factors for type II endoleak to guide selective inferior mesenteric artery embolization.

It is unclear which patients are the best candidates for inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) embolization to reduce type II endoleak (ELII). Therefore, this study aimed to identify the anatomical risk factors for ELII after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) and to determine the best candidates for preventative, preoperative IMA embolization.

First case of two synchronous gluteal arteries aneurysms treated by endovascular plug embolization: case report and literature review.

Gluteal artery aneurysms (GAA) are rare, accounting for less than 1% of all arterial aneurysms. Most of them are post-traumatic in nature and involve the superior gluteal artery (SGA), while injuries of the inferior gluteal artery (IGA) have been reported less frequently. We report an unusual case of patient with double saccular GAA of unknown etiology, involving both the SGA and IGA, successfully treated by endovascular embolization.

Rationale and Design of the ARREST Trial Investigating Mesenchymal Stem Cells in the Treatment of Small AAA.

Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are a major source of morbidity and mortality despite continuing advances in surgical technique and care. Although the inciting factors for AAA development continue to be elusive, accumulating evidence suggests a significant peri-aortic inflammatory response leading to degradation and dilation of the aortic wall. Previous human trials have demonstrated safety and efficacy of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in the treatment of inflammation-related pathologies such as rheumatoid...

Unusual causes of venous thrombosis; bladder distension and uterine mass.

Thrombosis of the inferior vena cava (IVC) continues to be a rare event and there is a scarcity of evidence with regard to its etiology. One source for IVC thrombosis is external compression from adjacent structures. In this case series we present one case of IVC thrombosis caused by a severely distended bladder and a case of external iliac thrombosis caused by external compression from an abnormally enlarged uterus. The treatment of each case is varied and included novel oral anticoagulation (NOAC), cathet...

Successful Use of Nellix and Endovascular Aortic Sealing (EVAS) Technology for Treatment of Aortic Rupture in a Porcine Model.

Endovascular Aortic Sealing (EVAS) represents a recent transformation in approach for treatment of aortic aneurysms. Initial reporting has shown that EVAS using the Nellix device is safe with similar complication rates to standard endovascular aortic repair (EVAR). What remains unknown is how EVAS technology will behave in the ruptured setting. The purpose of this report is to discuss how EVAS system and endobag technology behave when deployed in a porcine model of aortic rupture.

Our aim is to describe recent temporal trends in the proportion of dialysis access procedures performed on an inpatient vs. outpatient basis, and to determine the effects of these changes on perioperative morbidity and mortality. MethodsThe 2005-2008 ACS NSQIP database was qu...

Non-invasive Peripheral artery disease screening tools: A deficient knowledge among French vascular residents from four medical schools.

Ankle-brachial index (ABI) at rest, Post-exercise ABI and Toe-Brachial Index (TBI) are essential diagnostic tools recommended for peripheral artery disease (PAD) diagnosis. Our study investigates the level of knowledge on these three tests among vascular medicine residents from four French medical schools in France.

Rapid Methods for Routine Frailty Assessment During Vascular Surgery Clinic Visits.

Frailty assessment can help vascular surgeons predict perioperative risk and long term mortality for their patients. Unfortunately, comprehensive frailty assessments take too long to integrate into clinic workflow. This study was designed to evaluate 2 rapid methods for assessing frailty during vascular clinics-a short patient-reported survey and a provider-reported frailty scale.
