Ectopic renal artery, a rare congenital anomaly, presents a challenge in open surgery and endovascular repair for abdominal aortic lesions. To preserve the abnormal main blood supply and renal function complicates the procedures requiring careful imaging measurement and well-designed therapeutic strategy. We report on a 68-year-old man with abdominal aortic atherosclerotic ulcers, bilateral common iliac artery aneurysms and right ectopic renal artery stenosis that was successfully managed with antegrade chi...
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disease affecting about 13% of men and 6% of women, usually having severe cardiovascular sequalae. OSA is responsible for the systemic inflammatory response and oxidative stress and results in endothelial injury being a risk factor for atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of OSA among patients with severe carotid artery stenosis. Fifty-five patients (F/M-24/31, mean age 70 ± 7 years, body mass index 28.3 ± 6.3 kg/m) were enrolled i...
Various studies have addressed risk factors for recurrence of ischemic stroke in patients with symptomatic carotid artery stenosis. However, no investigations have compared common localized carotid artery lesions and internal carotid artery lesions, including carotid bifurcation. This retrospective study investigated risk factors for ischemic stroke recurrence in patients with symptomatic carotid artery stenosis, including a comparison of lesion sites.
An 82-year-old man with dementia, gait disturbance, and a small cerebral infarction due to severe bilateral carotid artery stenosis was successfully treated with carotid artery stenting (CAS). Preoperative cerebral vascular reactivity (CVR) was reduced in the bilateral cerebral hemispheres. We performed CAS to treat the right internal carotid artery stenosis. Following CAS, CVR showed an increase in the bilateral cerebral hemispheres. Memory, fluency, and attention also showed improvement. This case illustr...
Abdominal aortic aneurysm has become increasingly important owing to demographic changes. Some other diseases, for example, cholecystolithiasis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and hernias, seem to co-occur with abdominal aortic aneurysm. The aim of this retrospective analysis was to identify new comorbidities associated with abdominal aortic aneurysm.
Carotid near-occlusion (CNO) is distal luminal collapse of the internal carotid artery beyond a tight stenosis. CNO is a relatively rare condition accounting for 3% in symptomatic carotid stenosis and about 20% in severe (≥70%) symptomatic stenosis. The optimal treatment for CNO remains controversial.
The prevalence of combined severe aortic stenosis and abdominal aortic aneurysm is increasing with the ageing of the population. Both conditions are associated with adverse outcome if not adequately managed. The choice of the optimal treatment of these patients is challenging and no clear recommendations are available. We report two cases of patients with concomitant severe symptomatic aortic stenosis and infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm successfully treated with combined transfemoral transcatheter aort...
Posttraumatic internal carotid aneurysms are rare. Two posttraumatic aneurysms occurring at the same time are even more rare. Two pseudoaneurysms located in different segments of the ipsilateral internal carotid artery have not been found in the literature. We provide the results of angiographic images of traumatic aneurysms over time.
Carotid artery kinking is a frequent finding in duplex ultrasonography. However, isolated morphological changes without significant carotid stenosis is rarely symptomatic. Neck pain is a rare symptom in patients with carotid artery kinks. The vascular etiology in patients with persistent neck pain is usually overlooked. A fifty-eight-year-old female patient with chronic neck pain presented to our clinic. Following multidisciplinary team review, the symptoms were found due to the kinking of the internal caro...
Synchronous Carotid Endarterectomy and Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) versus staged Carotid Artery Stenting and CABG for Patients with Concomitant Severe Coronary and Carotid Stenosis: a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.
Due to the systemic nature of atherosclerosis, medium and large arteries at different sites are commonly simultaneously affected. As a result, severe coronary artery disease (CAD) requiring coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) frequently coexists with significant carotid stenosis that warrants revascularization.
To evaluate the feasibility to treat complex internal carotid aneurysms by superficial temporal artery trunk-radial artery-middle cerebral artery (STAT-RA-MCA) bypass combined with balloon occlusion of internal carotid artery.
The pathogenesis and etiology of thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA) are largely unknown. Preliminary data from patients with aortic dissection and abdominal aneurysms suggest a causal link of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) on aortic disease.
High-grade carotid stenosis can affect cognition, but the relationship between stenosis correction and cognitive outcome is not fully understood, yet. The aim of this study was to evaluate the predictors of post-operative neurocognitive functioning in patients with symptomatic severe internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis undergoing carotid endarterectomy (CEA).
We reported a case of carotid artery stenosis with stroke symptoms detected in a patient with lung cancer after radiotherapy. The patient was a 58-year-old male with a complaint of \"a single episode of temporary amaurosis in the right eye for 10 minutes". The clinical diagnosis at admission, after consideration of the patient's age, medical history, and auxiliary examination results, was as follows: lung cancer; right common carotid artery stenosis; left common carotid artery stenosis; left vertebral arte...
External carotid artery (ECA) stenosis is an independent mortality predictor. Additionally, concomitant ECA and internal carotid artery (ICA) stenoses progression has been associated with an increased risk of ipsilateral ischemic events in asymptomatic patients. Universally accepted ECA duplex velocity criteria, for the prediction of stenosis, do not exist.
There are no data about the prevalence of silent coronary artery disease in asymptomatic severe aortic stenosis patients with normal exercise testing. Importantly, unmasking significant coronary artery disease in patients with aortic stenosis could influence the choice/timing of treatment in these patients.
Flow-diverter stents (FDSs) have recently gained acceptance for the treatment of intracranial aneurysms, especially for carotid-ophthalmic aneurysms (COAs). However, complications have been reported after coverage of side branches, especially the ophthalmic artery (OA).
"Synchronous versus Staged Carotid Endarterectomy (CEA) and Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) for Patients with Concomitant Severe Coronary and Carotid Artery Stenosis: a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis".
Due to the systemic nature of atherosclerosis, arteries at different sites are commonly simultaneously affected. As a result, severe Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) requiring Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) frequently coexists with significant carotid stenosis that warrants revascularization.
The aim of this study was to investigate the value of extracranial carotid artery calcium score in predicting severity of carotid arterial stenosis.
Our case illustrates the concomitant presence of a giant aneurysm of the left renal artery at the ostium and an abdominal aortic aneurysm, in presence of a complex aortic anatomy. Type of approach and timing of the treatment is still not well established for the rare coexistence of these two pathologies. Endovascular therapy in case of surgical high risk patient is considered now the best choice to exclude arterial and aortic aneurysms even though the chance to do further interventions in the follow-up. For...
The perioperative mortality and morbidity rates of surgical repair of mycotic abdominal aortic aneurysms and aortic graft infections are high and the appropriate treatment is debated. This retrospective study compared venous and antimicrobial prosthetic aortic graft reconstructions.
To analyze the epidemiology of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (RAAA) in Sweden over 20 years, and assess the effect of endovascular repair (EVAR) on surgical treatment rate and outcome.
Pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysm (PDA) is a rare visceral aneurysm and represents 1.5% of all the visceral arterial aneurysms. A 81-year old man was admitted with acute abdominal pain. He suffered 2 previous episodes of pancreatitis and he underwent abdominal aortic aneurysm repair eleven years before.The CT scan revealed a 92 mm aneurysm of inferior PDA artery with pre-rupture signs associated with the celiac trunk obstruction.The patient underwent a selective catheterization and embolization of superio...
A higher prevalence of intracranial aneurysms (IAs) has been previously reported by retrospective studies in patients with thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAAs). The goal of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of IAs in a large cohort of prospectively screened patients with TAAs and identify potential risk factors.
Acute ischemic stroke caused by cervical internal carotid artery stenosis (ICS) with disturbance of consciousness and progressive paralysis leads to a poor neurological prognosis. When such a patient is brought to the hospital in the hyperacute phase, IV-tPA is first administered. However, when an indwelling carotid artery stent is required after administration, physicians often hesitate to use antithrombotic drugs. In this report, we propose performing staged angioplasty (SAP) for such cases.
