Iatrogenic simultaneous inferior vena cava (IVC) and iliac vessel injury is a rare entity. Ligation of the IVC in a life-threatening situation is well reported in the literature. Our case demonstrates that such a clinical situation requires optimization of fluid volume and management of sequelae such as deep vein thrombosis.

A 48-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with chronic aortic dissection Stanford Type A. His diagnosis was confirmed by chest multi-detector computed tomography (CT). The patient underwent combined (i.e., hybrid) open and endovascular repair (frozen elephant trunk) in a one-stage operation with moderate hypothermic circulatory arrest and antegrade cerebral perfusion. His postoperative course was uneventful, and he was discharged home on postoperative day 9. At 2-year follow-up, chest CT angiography revealed complete shrinkage of the obliterated false lumen in the distal aortic arch and descending thoracic aorta...

Aorto-cutaneous fistula and false aneurysm of the ascending aorta in patients who previously underwent Stanford Type A acute aortic dissection are rare and severe complications. Surgical correction remains a demanding challenge. In a case of false aneurysm rupture during redo sternotomy, selective cannulation of the right axillary and left carotid arteries allowed an efficient method of cerebral perfusion.

Late complications can arise after explantation of a left ventricular assist device. We report the case of a patient who presented at the age of 19 years with peri-partum cardiomyopathy and was initially managed with a biventricular support device, which was subsequently upgraded to an ambulatory left ventricular assist device. This was successfully explanted after myocardial recovery via a minimally invasive approach 7 months later. The patient re-presented 5 years following explantation with hemoptysis. At redo sternotomy, a 10-cm remnant of the outflow graft was found to be eroding the surface of the right lung...

BACKGROUND: The impact of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) on pulsatile aortic strain remains undetermined in patients with Type B aortic dissection (TBAD). Therefore, we quantified pulsatile aortic strain in TBAD patients and control subjects. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed two TBAD patients from our database with cardiac-gated computed tomography angiography imaging available before and after TEVAR and two control subjects (67- and 76-year-old males)...

BACKGROUND: Surgery confers the best chance of survival following acute Type A dissection (ATAD), yet perioperative mortality remains high. Although perioperative risk factors for mortality have been described, information on the actual causes of death is sparse. In this study, we aimed to characterize the inciting events causing death during surgical repair of ATAD. METHODS: Nine centers participated in the study. We included all patients who died following surgical repair for ATAD between January 2007 and December 2013...

A 70-year-old man was successfully treated for an aortoduodenal fistula originating from a Q fever-related abdominal aortic aneurysm. He had no known history of contact with cattle or sheep. Although the combination of abdominal aortic aneurysm and aortoduodenal fistula is rare, one should be suspicious of Q fever infection as the causative agent, and additional medical treatment should be initiated.

The aim of this report is to describe the imaging and successful treatment of an acute shrinkage of the Ovation Abdominal Stent Graft System. The Ovation Prime system utilizes a polymer-filled sealing ring that is cast in situ at the margin of the aneurysm; however, the residual endograft inner volume after ring filling may reduce volume and graft flow. Nevertheless, there are no reports about severe complications using the Ovation Prime system. A 75-year-old male presented to our hospital for acute lower limb ischemia...

Thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) is a lethal disease, with a natural history of enlarging progressively until dissection or rupture occurs. Since the discovery almost 20 years ago that ascending TAAs are highly familial, our understanding of the genetics of thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection (TAAD) has increased exponentially. At least 29 genes have been shown to be associated with the development of TAAD, the majority of which encode proteins involved in the extracellular matrix, smooth muscle cell contraction or metabolism, or the transforming growth factor-β signaling pathway...

BACKGROUND: Coronary button reimplantation can represent a technical challenge of aortic root reconstruction that can be associated with significant morbidity and mortality. With the goal of simplifying coronary reimplantation and reducing the incidence of related complications, we designed a new Dacron graft with prefabricated coronary branches to minimize coronary artery mobilization and prevent the potential mechanical complications of reattachment to the body of the graft. METHODS: Between June 2010 and May 2012, we implanted the graft in eight patients (six males, two females) ranging in age from 42-68 years (mean, 54 years)...

We present a simplified surgical technique that was performed on a 37-year-old man who presented with a pseudoaneurysm of the left coronary ostium two months after repair of acute Type A aortic dissection with a composite graft. Intraoperatively, the surgical sites showed extreme adhesions. The leakage at the level of the coronary suture line was exposed from inside the aortic graft. Repair was performed using 7.0 polypropylene sutures, and the postoperative course was uneventful. The patient was discharged on postoperative day six without further complications...

Acute aortic dissection is a rare but devastating complication during cardiac catheterization. We present the case of an elderly female who incurred a Stanford Type A/DeBakey Type I acute aortic dissection extending into the arch vessels and descending aorta likely occurring during right coronary artery engagement for angioplasty. The patient was treated successfully by immediately sealing the entrance of the dissection via the placement of a stent and anti-impulse therapy. Follow-up computed tomography scan showed complete resolution of the dissection within one month...

Taylor Thomas, Anil K Poulose, Kevin M Harris
Acute aortic intramural hematoma, which is a variant of acute aortic syndromes, most frequently occurs spontaneously and typically is treated similar to classic aortic dissection. Here, we describe a case in which an iatrogenic aortic intramural hematoma occurs shortly after transaortic valve replacement. The patient was managed conservatively, and the hematoma quickly resolved as demonstrated by serial imaging.

Iatrogenic aortic dissection (IAD) is a rare complication of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). There are no clear guidelines for IAD management, and limited data are available. Registry data and case series combined with extrapolations from our experience with spontaneous Type-A dissections suggest that very limited dissections are often managed conservatively with coronary stenting of the entry tear when possible, while more extensive dissections are managed surgically. We present a case report of a 50-year-old woman who underwent PCI for an ST-elevation myocardial infarction that resulted in an extensive IAD from the ostium of the right coronary artery to the aortic root, ascending aorta, and aortic arch...
