The role of collateral artery circulation in the lower limb is under debate but clinically relevant, particularly when using covered stents for occlusive disease. Covered stents seem to outperform nitinol stents in extensive disease, but collaterals could be essential in case of acute thrombosis. In the present study, we describe the collateral pathways of the deep and superficial femoral artery (DFA, SFA) and the popliteal artery (PA), observed in human cadavers.
This retrospective study determined the duplex ultrasound scanning criteria for detecting 50%-69% and 70%-99% stenosis of the superficial femoral artery (SFA). Examinations of 278 limbs in 185 patients with peripheral arterial disease were performed. Duplex ultrasound scanning was used to measure the diameter of the vascular lumen, the peak systolic velocity (PSV) at the stenotic segment of the SFA (PSVst), the segment proximal to the stenosis (PSVpro) and the popliteal artery (PSVpop, distal to the stenosi...
Conflicting data exist on outcomes of open vein harvest (OVH) and endoscopic vein harvest (EVH) for infrainguinal bypass. The purpose of this study was to compare outcomes between OVH and EVH in femoral to popliteal artery bypasses.
In patients with severe carotid artery stenosis, the anatomy of their Type III aortic arch increases the difficulty and complication rates during carotid artery stenting because of its tortuosity and sharp angulation for cannulation as well as the unstable support of the guidewire for shuttle sheath delivery.
Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome is a condition in which compression of the popliteal neurovascular structures results in symptoms of lower extremity claudication by way of a constricting anatomic structure or a hypertrophied surrounding musculature. This diagnosis is often missed or misdiagnosed because popliteal artery entrapment syndrome has a presentation similar to that of exertional compartment syndrome. Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome may result in persistent disability or unnecessary morbid...
Vascular calcifications worse outcomes in the general population and in patients on dialysis. We investigated 146 patients on chronic hemodialysis and 63 healthy controls with normal renal function under 65 years of age. All subjects underwent B-mode ultrasonography of common and internal carotid artery, abdominal aorta, common and superficial femoral artery and posterior tibial artery to assess the presence of intimal and medial calcifications. Intimal and media calcifications were present at the level of ...
The outcomes of revascularization of nonatherosclerotic occlusive popliteal artery disease are unknown. Therefore, the objective of this study was to analyze the outcomes of recanalization of nonatherosclerotic occlusive popliteal artery disease, the results of which would be useful in creating surgical strategies for such cases.
Objective Postoperative pain following lower extremity revascularization procedures is traditionally controlled with narcotic administration. However, this may not adequately control the pain and puts the patient at risk for complications from opiate use. Here we report an alternative strategy for pain management using a continuous catheter-infused local anesthetic into the operative limb. Design Retrospective case-control study. Methods Patients undergoing lower extremity revascularization procedures using...
The objective of this study was to determine the natural progression of popliteal artery aneurysms (PAAs) and clinical variables associated with their accelerated growth.
Hypotension (HT) is well recognized to frequently occur during and after carotid artery stenting (CAS), which sometimes causes postoperative complications such as stroke or myocardial infarction. This study aimed to examine the risk factors associated with HT after CAS based on the hypothesis that overlapped stenting may affect postoperative HT.
Posterior cerebral artery (PCA) aneurysms are rare and the majority are fusiform in shape. Proximal occlusion of PCA represents a treatment option for these lesions. However, this procedure carries a high risk of ischemic complications.
Variations in the branching pattern of brachial artery and abnormal course of its branches are not uncommon. The present article describes a case of bifurcation of the brachial artery into a common radial-interosseous trunk and superficial ulnar artery. The embryological basis behind the present case report could be, the radial artery establishing a connection with the axis artery just below the level of origin of ulnar artery, the posterior interosseous artery arising from the axis artery distal to the ori...
Hip arthroplasty is a common procedure used for the treatment of fractures and degenerative processes affecting the hip. Proximal femoral replacement is an uncommon type of hip arthroplasty used for reconstruction after extensive bone loss. Proximal femoral replacement is used most commonly after the resection of the proximal femur for malignancies and for extensive bone loss encountered in revision hip arthroplasty and occasionally for extensive bone loss after fractures. The authors present a case of a fe...
A 16-year-old boy sustained a salter III fracture of the upper tibia following a motorcycle accident. Except for well localized knee pain, the patient did not have any other symptom. Repeated clinical examination did not reveal any absent peripheral pulse. Given the state of the fracture, anatomical reduction and screw fixation was planned in the operating room. Twelve hours after admission the patient was taken to the operating room. During the period preceding surgery he continued to have normal ...
Adventitial cystic disease is relatively rare vascular disease, frequently occurred in the popliteal artery. No definitive treatment has been established yet.
The hair-bearing superficial temporal artery free flap has been used in men for total upper lip reconstruction. In this paper we present a case of a partial upper lip defect in a man that was reconstructed with a pedicle superficial temporal artery flap.
Myocardial infarction (MI) following blunt chest trauma is rare, but potentially fatal. We treated a young patient for acute MI after falling chest-first on ice while playing hockey. Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) was performed after percutaneous stenting attempts were unsuccessful. By reviewing the related literature, we found 179 cases, the majority of which affected young males following road accidents. Left anterior descending artery was most frequently affected followed by right coronary artery...
Implants are commonly used to stabilize proximal femoral osteotomies in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Removal of implants is common practice and believed to avoid infection, fracture, or pain that might be associated with retained hardware. There is little evidence to support a prophylactic strategy over a reactive approach based on symptoms. The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of prophylactic and reactive approaches to removal of proximal femoral implants in children with CP.
This analysis compared the angiographic outcomes of patients treated with orbital atherectomy for calcified common femoral artery (CFA) and superficial femoral artery (SFA) disease. The ideal revascularization strategy for CFA disease is unknown. Endarterectomy has been considered the standard of care for CFA disease for over 50 years. Endovascular intervention is becoming more commonly used to revascularize the CFA given the advances in technology and the less invasive nature of the procedure. Patient demo...
To investigate potential predictors of implant failure following fixation of proximal femoral fractures with a fracture of the lateral femoral wall.
We previously reported safety and usefulness of transradial iliac artery stenting using 6 Fr guiding sheath. However, radial artery occlusion was a major limitation of this procedure. We analyzed the safety and utility of slender transradial iliac artery stenting using a 4.5 Fr guiding sheath to prevent radial artery occlusion. We performed transradial iliac artery stenting in left radial artery, using a 4.5 Fr sheath incorporating a shaft length of 110 cm, for 34 lesions in 29 patients. Transradial int...
We compared the angiographic outcomes of patients treated with orbital atherectomy for profunda femoris artery (PFA) and superficial femoral artery (SFA) disease from the CONFIRM I-III registries.
Dislocation rates are reportedly lower in patients requiring proximal femoral hemiarthroplasty than for patients undergoing hip arthroplasty for neoplasia. Without acetabular replacement, pain due to acetabular wear necessitating revision surgery has been described. We aimed to determine whether wear of the native acetabulum following hemiarthroplasty necessitates revision surgery with secondary replacement of the acetabulum after proximal femoral replacement (PFR) for tumour reconstruction.
Adventitial cystic disease is an uncommon condition that is characterized by the collection of mucinous material that accumulates in the adventitial layer of the artery. Predominantly, this entity affects the popliteal artery, whereas it is extremely rare in the radial artery. We report a 72-year-old female patient that underwent surgical treatment of an adventitial cyst of the right radial artery. The involved arterial segment was resected, and reconstruction by means of the interposition of a saphenous ve...
