Since 2013, the Japanese Society for Vascular Surgery (JSVS) has started the project of nationwide registration and a tracking database for patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) who are treated by vascular surgeons. The purpose of this project is to clarify the current status of the medical practice for patients with CLI to contribute to the improvement of the quality of medical care. This database, called JAPAN Critical Limb Ischemia Database (JCLIMB), is created on the National Clinical Database (NCD) and collects data of patients' background, therapeutic measures, early results, and long-term prognosis as long as 5 years after the initial treatment...

Frozen elephant trunk (FET) technique combines open surgery and endovascular repair for extensive thoracic aortic aneurysms. When a FET is inserted into the descending thoracic aorta, it is difficult to confirm its proper positioning. Here we report a radiopaque ruler-guided FET technique. On the basis of preoperative computed tomography, we create a roadmap which shows the relationship between the descending thoracic aorta and vertebrae. During surgery, a radiopaque ruler placed beneath the patient's back provides the accurate target position under fluoroscopy...

Blunt aortic injures are rarely associated with minimal trauma. We present a 78-year-old man with an aortic pseudoaneurysm resulting from a simple vertebral compression fracture, which was conservatively managed. He was diagnosed with a compression fracture from a minor fall 10 days previously, and fortuitously he visited the hospital after which follow-up computed tomography (CT) for previous multiple aortic surgeries was performed. The enhanced CT revealed a pseudoaneurysm on the abdominal aorta, which was bleeding from a pinhole perforation...

A 74-year-old man with multiple aortic aneurysms and shaggy aorta was simultaneously treated by conventional open repair for an abdominal aortic aneurysm and endoluminal stent grafting for a thoracic aortic aneurysm. We performed intermittent clamping of the visceral and carotid arteries under an extracorporeal circulation circuit without a blood flow pump, which lead to the avoidance of embolization in spite of the disadvantage of endoluminal stent grafting for atheromatous aorta.

We describe the successful surgical treatment of an impending rupture of a saccular descending thoracic aortic aneurysm and accompanying compression of the left main bronchus. A 69-year-old man presented with a history of tingling chest pain lasting for a few hours. His left lung cannot be auscultated, and he was rapid progression of dyspnea. Computed tomography (CT) showed a saccular aneurysm compressing the left main bronchus. The patient was treated with conventional open surgery. The compression was immediately released...

We report a patient who developed ileus caused by vascular stent migration into the duodenum with periprosthetic retroperitoneal abscess. The patient previously underwent removal of an infected abdominal aortic aneurysm with concomitant axillobifemoral arterial reconstruction. An occlusion of the graft leg was treated by a unilateral aortoiliac bypass where endovascular surgery with a metallic stent was later needed. The abscess and ileus were vigorously drained. Following the spontaneous evacuation of the metallic stent via the digestive tract, the abscess was completely drained and fistula closure was achieved without surgical intervention...

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is known to be rarely accompanied by disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). We report a case of AAA with DIC. An 81-year-old man with abdominal pain referred to our hospital. Computed tomography demonstrated an AAA (maximum diameter: 90 mm). The patient underwent a laparotomy, and an abdominal aorta replacement was performed. At the 3-month follow-up, the patient underwent Helicobacter pylori eradication treatment for 1 week. After treatment, the platelet count dramatically increased...

We report lethal hemorrhage from the kidney after thoracic endovascular repair for chronic type B dissection complicated by disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). A 70-year-old woman underwent thoracic endovascular repair to treat chronic DIC. Two weeks after surgery, refractory shock suddenly occurred and computed tomography showed a massive hematoma around the left kidney. Emergent renal artery angiography showed multiple bleeding points in the renal cortex. Immediate embolization of the renal artery was performed and her hemodynamic condition recovered...

The patient described herein was a 75-year-old female. Echocardiography showed patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). Heart failure symptoms gradually appeared, and she was referred to our department for treatment. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) revealed a tubular structure communicating between the aortic arch and pulmonary artery trunk, suggesting adult PDA. Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) was performed to close PDA. Completion angiography confirmed the disappearance of PDA. Post-TEVAR CT revealed no endoleak...

Pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta is a rare but life- threatening complication after aortic cannulation and cardiovascular surgery, and it has the potential to rupture. We experienced a rare case of recurrence of aneurysm of the ascending aorta 7 years after patch repair of a small aneurysm at an aortic cannulation site. The repaired aorta had been wrapped with a Teflon felt strip during the previous surgery, and the wrapped aorta had become thin with deterioration of the normal structure of the aortic wall...

Objective: Toe-brachial index (TBI) is usually measured in the great toe (TBI-1). However, this is not always possible. To determine the usefulness of TBI measurement in the second toe (TBI-2), we examined the relation between systolic pressure in the second toe (toe pressure [TP-2]) and that in the great toe (TP-1) and evaluated the association between TBI and ankle-brachial index (ABI). Materials and Methods: We retrospectively analyzed patients who underwent a series of measurements of TBI-2, TBI-1, and ABI using an automatic oscillometric device at Kawasaki Medical School Hospital, Japan in 2012...

Objective: Previously, we analyzed human varicose veins (VV) using imaging mass spectrometry (IMS) and detected the abnormal accumulation of lipid molecules in the walls of VV, possibly due to insufficient lipid drainage by the lymphatic vessels. In this study, we created an animal model of lymphatic insufficiency to investigate the effects of insufficient lymph drainage on vein walls. Methods: In rats, the lymphatic collecting vessels surrounding the femoral vein were ligated on one side (the model tissue), which caused the local retention of lymphatic fluid in the perivascular tissue...
