Introduction: Extracranial vertebral artery aneurysm (EVAA) and extrapleural haematoma (EH) are rare clinical findings most often associated with blunt or penetrating trauma. However, EVAA rupture can be complicated by development of a large EH. Report: A 50 year old man underwent an emergency thrombectomy followed by graft reconstruction of an aorto-bi-femoral bypass. The post-operative course was complicated by respiratory failure and severe anaemia. Computed tomography revealed EVAA rupture and EH, so ligation of EVAA was performed with thoracotomy...

A 71 year old male who had undergone extra-anatomic bypass grafting between the ascending aorta and the thoraco-abdominal aorta at 41 years of age for aortic coarctation was admitted with back pain and dyspnea. A 16 mm Cooley double velour knitted polyethylene terephthalate (PET) graft was used in the initial operation in 1983. Computed tomography showed disruption of the initial PET graft perforating the right atrium, and a pseudoaneurysm at the distal anastomosis. The patient was in acute cardiac failure because of left to right shunting...

Introduction: Vasculopathy, such as an aneurysm, stenosis, rupture, or arteriovenous fistula, in patients with neurofibromatosis type I (NF-1; von Recklinghausen disease) is well recognised. However, there has been no report regarding treatment for a ruptured lumbar artery aneurysm associated with NF-1. We present the first report of successful endovascular treatment by coil embolisation for a ruptured lumbar artery aneurysm in a patient with NF-I. Report: A 52 year old man with a history of NF-1 was referred with back pain and anaemia...

Introduction: Bilateral extracranial carotid artery aneurysms (ECAAs) are very rare. The case of a patient with bilateral ECAA who underwent staged surgical repair is reported. Report: A 35 year old man was referred with a slow growing pulsatile neck mass causing mild discomfort. Computed tomography and duplex ultrasound showed a right ECAA, with a 3.0 cm diameter 5 cm long true aneurysm, and a left ECAA, with 2.1 cm diameter 4.5 cm long true aneurysm. In two stages, both aneurysms were excised and bypassed with an interposition graft using saphenous vein...

Introduction: Chronic venous ulcers (CVU) commonly have poorly controlled pain. Report: Thirty patients older than 65 years of age with painful CVU were reviewed. At the initial visit, cleaning without sevoflurane was performed. Cleaning visits with sevoflurane every 2 days for 1 month were scheduled. The results of subsequent treatment with sevoflurane at the first, second, seventh, and twelfth cleanings were analysed. Pain was measured using a visual analog scale (VAS), quality of life by the Charing Cross Venous Leg Ulcer Questionnaire, and functional capacity by the Barthel Index...

M Berner, Th Lattmann, Ph Stalder, P Wigger
Background: The complication of vein patch rupture is well described after carotid patch angioplasty; however, there is a paucity of data about the safety of vein patch closure in the setting of femoral endarterectomy. Methods/results: From May 2012 to May 2015, 115 femoral endarterectomies with patch closure were performed. A patch rupture occurred in three cases (2.6%) with a mortality rate of 66% (2/3). In all cases the greater saphenous vein below the knee was used as patch material...

A Singh, M Wyatt, M Clarke, L Wales
Introduction: BioGlue (CryoLife Inc., Kennesaw, GA) is a commonly used surgical adhesive, designed to achieve haemostasis following large vessel cardiovascular operations. Report: An 88-year-old female presents with an enlarging right sided neck mass 9 months after carotid endarterectomy with bovine pericardial patch repair which utilised BioGlue seal the patch suture line. Conclusion: BioGlue should be used properly and with caution. In cases of late wound complication following BioGlue use, simple drainage, debridement, and removal of BioGlue remnants may be a satisfactory approach...

Background: Visceral arterial pseudoaneurysms (VAPAs) are rare vascular entities with serious consequences. Traditionally, they are associated with trauma, infection, and inflammatory disease, or they can arise as a post-operative complication. Report: An 87 year old man presented with abdominal pain and was found to have a spontaneous VAPA on a computed tomography angiogram. Serial imaging 4 months previously had demonstrated no aneurysm. Between scans, warfarin was changed to apixaban for aortic valve replacement, but he had no other changes to any other medications...

INTRODUCTION: Selection of the optimal anastomosis site is essential for obtaining good results from distal bypass. Herein, a unique, precise technique that uses pre-operative duplex scanning for selecting this site is presented. TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Before distal bypass surgery, duplex scanning is performed to assess patency and flow. Use of the venous preset mode and controlling the slant function allows visualisation of colour Doppler flow inside the arteries, thus enabling selection of the best segment for anastomosis...

INTRODUCTION: Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is the most commonly used approach for treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). Testicular infarction is a rare complication of EVAR. A novel case of acute global testicular infarction post-EVAR from cholesterol embolisation mimicking torsion is presented. REPORT: A 75 year old man developed acute right testicular ischaemia requiring orchidectomy following EVAR of an infrarenal aortic aneurysm. The patient was initially diagnosed with testicular torsion as the aetiology of the infarction; however, on re-analysis of histopathology it was found to be secondary to cholesterol emboli...

PURPOSE: Preservation of intercostal arteries during thoracic aortic procedures reduces the risk of post-operative paraparesis. The origins of the intercostal arteries are visible on pre-operative computed tomography angiography (CTA), but rarely on intra-operative angiography. The purpose of this report is to suggest an image fusion technique for intra-operative localisation of the intercostal arteries during thoracic endovascular repair (TEVAR). TECHNIQUE: The ostia of the intercostal arteries are identified and manually marked with rings on the pre-operative CTA...
