#1
Wonho Kim, Min Suk Choi, Jin Ho Choi
A 78-year-old man presented at Eulji University Hospital due to an abdominal aortic aneurysm with maximum diameter of 52 mm, which had been increased from 45 mm over 6 months. He underwent embolization of the left internal iliac artery with vascular plug, prior to endovascular abdominal aortic repair with a bifurcated stent graft system. Unfortunately, the inserted vascular plug was maldeployed and protruded into left external iliac artery, and caused acute limb ischemia. Because revascularization of the occluded segment was failed, emergent hybrid approach with aorto-uni-iliac stent grafting and femoro-femoral bypass was done, successfully...

Marfan syndrome is a connective tissue disorder associated with aortic dissection, aneurysmal degeneration and rupture. These cardiovascular complications represent the main cause of mortality, therefore repair is indicated. We present a 35-year-old woman who experienced acute onset of chest pain. Her imaging revealed a chronic DeBakey type I dissection with aortic root dilation and descending thoracic aneurysmal degeneration. She underwent a Bentall procedure and endovascular exclusion of the descending thoracic aortic aneurysm...

Jung Sik Choi, Keun-Myoung Park, Sungteak Jung, Kee Chun Hong, Yong Sun Jeon, Soon Gu Cho, Yun-Mee Choe
PURPOSE: Totally implantable venous access devices (TIVADs) are commonly used in pediatrics for the administration of chemotherapy, antibiotics, or parenteral nutrition. TIVADs can be implanted using various techniques, including surgical cutdown (SC) and percutaneous puncture (PP). Recently, percutaneous TIVAD became popular in adults, but studies comparing between PP and SC group in pediatric patients are rare. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data were collected and analyzed retrospectively from 23 patients who underwent TIVAD at a single institution between January 2013 and December 2015...

PURPOSE: Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (RAAA) is a rare, extremely dangerous condition. Previous studies have published preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative data; however, there are not enough studies on the preoperative factors alone. Here we studied the preoperative predictors of 30-day mortality in patients with RAAA. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective, consecutive review of the medical records of 57 patients who received management for RAAA between February 2005 and December 2016...

REVIEW
George Galyfos, Argyri Sianou
Cilostazol belongs to the new generation antiplatelet agents that have been introduced and studied regarding a potential role in cardiovascular disease prevention or treatment. Although data on peripheral artery disease are sufficient, and the drug has been recommended as first line treatment for intermittent claudication, it has not been approved nor recommended as far as cerebrovascular events are concerned. However, a great volume of randomized as well as pooled data has been published during the last years...

Min Jung Kim, Kyo Won Lee, Jae Berm Park, Sung Joo Kim
A 52-year-old man was admitted with an incidentally detected right renal artery aneurysm (RAA). Computed tomographic angiography with three-dimensional reconstruction revealed that the aneurysm was 2.2 cm in diameter and located at the renal hilum. We performed hand-assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy with ex vivo repair of the RAA and auto-transplantation with minimal elongation of Gibson incision. The operation and postoperative course were uneventful. At last follow-up, the patient was alive with a well-functioning auto-transplant...

Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair has been widely used for the treatment of AAA as a safe and efficient method, but endoleaks causing persistent expansion of aneurysm sac may cause aneurysmal rupture and death. Type 3 endoleak is rare but a predominant cause of late rupture. Type 3b endoleak can be misdiagnosed as type 2 endoleak, which is more frequent. Here we report two cases of type 3b endoleak mimicking type 2 endoleak, which were successfully treated by open surgery of partial explantation of the stent-graft and endoaneurysmal interposition graft replacement...

Jae Hoon Lee, Ki Hyuk Park
PURPOSE: Cone shape neck is regarded as non-instruction for use (IFU) in most commercial stent graft. However, in real practice, liberal application of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) for outside of IFU happens. We investigate non-adherence to conical neck anatomy in terms of early aneurysmal exclusion results. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January 2010 to December 2013, 105 patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) underwent EVAR in Daegu Catholic University Medical Center...

PURPOSE: Femorofemoral crossover bypass (FCB) is a good procedure for patients with unilateral iliac artery disease. There are many articles about the results of FCB, but most of them were limited to 5 years follow-up. The purpose of our study was to analysis the results of FCB with a 10-year follow-up period. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between January 1995 and December 2010, 133 patients were operated in Samsung Medical Center (median follow-up: 58.8 months). We retrospectively analysed patient characteristics, the preoperative treatment, the operative procedure, and material used...

REVIEW
Seung-Kee Min, Sungsin Cho, Hyun-Young Kim, Sang Joon Kim
Pediatric vascular disease is rare, and remains a big challenge to vascular surgeons. In contrast to adults, surgery for pediatric vascular disease is complicated by issues related to small size, future growth, and availability of suitable vascular conduit. During the last 30 years, 131 major vascular operations were performed in a tertiary referral center, Seoul National University Hospital, including aortoiliac aneurysm, acute or chronic arterial occlusion, renovascular hypertension, portal venous hypertension, trauma, tumor invasion to major abdominal vessels, and others...

Sung Hun Park, Seung-Woon Rha
Endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) was relatively safe, and became a widely performed procedure. If aortic dissection (AD) occurred in patient with previous EVAR, it could cause fatal complications like endograft collapse. Surgical treatment was limited in this situation for comorbidities and complex anatomies. Here we report a rare case of acute type B AD developed following trans-radial coronary intervention in a patient with previous EVAR of abdominal aortic aneurysm, which was treated with thoracic EVAR.

A 39-year-old woman arrived at our emergency department, complaining of severe pain and swelling of her left leg. She had slipped down stairs and injured on her left leg about 3 months ago. Computed tomography angiography showed left distal superficial femoral artery's pseudoaneurysm with arteriovenous fistula and thrombotic occlusion of left common iliac vein. We decided to do endovascular intervention due to severe venous hypertension and chronic inflammation around the fistula. The femoral arteriovenous fistula was closed via stent-graft (7 mm×5, 9 mm×5 cm) deployment...

A 71-year-old woman presented with an enlarging mass in the right buttock, with pain and tingling sensation in sitting position. Five years ago, she was diagnosed with acute limb ischemia due to acute thrombosis of right persistent sciatic artery (PSA), and she underwent successful thromboembolectomy and femoro-tibioperoneal trunk bypass. Computed tomography angiography revealed a huge PSA aneurysm (PSAA). During the previous bypass, the distal popliteal artery was ligated just above the distal anastomosis to exclude the PSAA, whose proximal end was already thrombosed...

#18
Yoona Chung, Jin Hyun Joh, Ho-Chul Park
PURPOSE: Conventional computed tomography (CT) is the gold standard method for case planning for endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). However, aortography with a marking catheter is needed for measuring the actual length of an aneurysm. With advances in imaging technology, a 3-dimensional (3D) workstation can obviate the need for the aortography. The objective of this study was to determine whether a 3D workstation could obviate the need for aortography for EVAR. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One vascular surgeon and 1 interventional radiologist retrospectively assessed axial CT scans and reformatted the 3D CT scans by using the iNtuition workstation (TeraRecon Inc...

PURPOSE: A native vessel is preferable to an artificial graft for dialysis access. Duplex ultrasound (DUS) is noninvasive, cost-effective modality to evaluate the vessels for dialysis. The purpose of this study was to compare the rates of utilization of native vessels after preoperative imaging with DUS and contrast venography (CV). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review was performed on patients who received an arteriovenous fistula (AVF) or arteriovenous graft (AVG) between June 2006 and July 2010...
