OBJECT: We report a relatively rare case of pediatric iatrogenic extradural vertebral arteriovenous fistula. CASE: A five-year-old boy with a history of multiple surgeries for Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return(TAPVR)exhibited vascular engorgement of his right neck from about 4 years old. We thought that this was caused by his past operations. He demonstrated swollen blood vessels in the right neck and pulmonary hypertension with increased right heart load...

INTRODUCTION Trinidad and Tobago is a trans-shipment point for the illegal trade of drugs, arms and ammunition and, as such, has a high incidence of gang-related warfare and drug-related crimes. This has led to a high incidence of gunshot and stab wounds, with associated major vascular injuries. We describe our management strategies learned from a decade of vascular trauma experience. METHODS A retrospective analysis of age, gender, type of trauma, vessel injured, procedure and outcome for all cases of vascular trauma between 2006 and 2015 at two surgical units in Trinidad and Tobago...

Arterial pseudoaneurysm of the lower limb is an infrequent entity, particularly in the infrapopliteal segment. It is commonly associated to vascular repairs or follows a localized arterial lesion, a fracture or a surgical procedure. There is little information in Mexico about this entity in cases involving the anterior tibial artery, and secondary to trauma and osteosynthesis. Given that sudden bleeding due to rupture of the pseudoaneurysm is a possible catastrophic outcome for the viability of the segment, it is important to timely detect and diagnose the pseudoaneurysm...

Peripheral vascular injuries carry significant risk for permanent functional impairment, limb loss, and death. Definitive correction of these injuries requires significant operative time and has traditionally been resource and skill set intensive. In the initial surgical treatment of the physiologically depleted trauma patient, faster techniques may prove more appropriate. Damage control techniques, including vascular shunting, rapidly restore distal flow, but require additional vascular intervention and risk shunt thrombosis with prolonged use...

Two distinct terms are used to describe vascular thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) depending on which structure is predominantly affected: venous TOS (due to subclavian vein compression) and arterial TOS (due to subclavian artery compression). Although the venous and arterial subtypes of TOS affect only 3% and <1% of all TOS patients respectively, the diagnostic and management approaches to venous and arterial TOS have undergone considerable evolution due to the recent emergence of minimally invasive endovascular techniques such as catheter-directed arterial and venous thrombolysis, and balloon angioplasty...

Aneurysmal degeneration of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) is a rare clinical finding, estimated to affect less than 1% of the general population in post-mortem studies. Due to the rare prevalence of aneurysms affecting the SMA, there are no clear or definitive published consensus guidelines for its management at presentation, with both surgical and endovascular options described. An aberrant or replaced right hepatic artery (RRHA) is thought to affect 10-15% of the population. The prevalence of both conditions presenting concomitantly is unknown, but undoubtedly even rarer...

OBJECTIVE: Penetrating carotid trauma in a hemodynamically stable patient invariably presents with a pseudoaneurysm on initial imaging. Although extremely rare, delayed pseudoaneurysm formation has been reported. The purpose of this paper is to define this rare entity and propose a diagnostic and treatment plan. METHODS: We present a case of delayed presentation of carotid pseudoaneurysm following penetrating neck trauma. A systematic review of the literature was performed...

OBJECTIVE: Multiple vascular inflow reconstruction options exist for claudication, including aortofemoral bypass (AFB) and alternative inflow procedures (AIPs) such as femoral reconstruction with iliac stents, and femoral-femoral, iliofemoral, and axillofemoral bypass. Contemporary multi-institution comparison of these techniques is lacking. METHODS: The Veterans Affairs Surgical Quality Improvement Project (VASQIP) national database (2005-2013) was used to compare AFB vs AIP in a propensity-matched analysis...

The authors assessed efficacy and safety of the operation of plication of deep veins of lower extremities, pelvic veins, and the inferior vena cava as a method of preventing fatal pulmonary artery thromboembolism. A total of 48 patients were operated on. Of these, 23 patients belonged to traumatological-and-orthopaedical cohort, 3 to general surgical cohort, 4 to gynaecological, and 18 to vascular cohort (isolated deep vein thrombosis). The length of the floating head of the thrombus varied from 2 to 10 cm...

Most published articles regarding popliteal artery pseudoaneurysms (PAPs) are case reports and in English language literature. In this context, no study with robust data was previously published. The exact epidemiology of these APs is not well-known and their management is not yet codified. We wanted to summarize the current knowledge on diagnostic and therapeutic features of PAPs as a result of limb trauma and orthopedic surgery or associated with osteochondromas. An electronic research on MEDLINE and EMBASE between 1953 and March 2015 was performed; using the key words "popliteal pseudoaneurysm"...

OBJECTIVE: Iliac endofibrosis is a rare condition that may result in a reduction of blood flow to the lower extremity in young, otherwise healthy individuals. The data to inform everyday clinical management are weak and therefore a Delphi consensus methodology was used to explore areas of consensus and disagreement concerning the diagnosis and management of patients with suspected iliac endofibrosis. METHODS: A three-round Delphi questionnaire approach was used among vascular surgeons, sports physicians, sports scientists, radiologists, and clinical vascular scientists with experience of treating this condition to explore diagnosis and clinical management issues for patients with suspected iliac artery endofibrosis...

Aneurysm or pseudoaneurysm formation is one of the vascular complications of Behcet disease. At present, the optimal treatment for the disease has not been established.The authors report a case of vasculo-Behcet disease (v-BD) with recurrent pseudoaneurysms in the left infrainguinal arteries (common femoral artery, superficial femoral artery, and popliteal artery), as well as thrombosis in the popliteal vein and posterior tibial vein. The patient underwent 3 rounds of surgery, but developed a new pseudoaneurysm several months after each surgery...

Intracranial dural arteriovenous fistulae (DAVF) are pathologic arteriovenous shunts between meningeal arteries and dural venous sinuses or veins. They account for approximately 10% to 15% of all intracranial vascular malformations and are most common in middle-aged patients. DAVF are the most common vascular cause of pulsatile tinnitus. Digital subtraction angiography remains the gold standard for diagnosing these lesions. The pattern of venous drainage determines the type of DAVF and their risk for hemorrhage...

BACKGROUND: Non-cardiac vascular diseases account for approximately 10 % of the total burden of disease in the German population as measured in disability-adjusted life years (DALY). Thus, from the social perspective, much attention should be paid to optimization of the provision of vascular services especially in elderly people. OBJECTIVES: This article describes the structure of inpatient care and the provision of vascular treatment as well as age- and gender-specific hospital incidence rates of vascular diseases in Germany between 2005 and 2013...

BACKGROUND: Complex, nontraumatic diabetic foot ulcers with peripheral vascular compromise often lead to extensive lower-limb amputation. The aim of this study is to determine the outcome of combined vascular intervention and free tissue transfer for critical diabetic limb salvage. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 26 consecutive diabetic patients with 28 legs with diabetic foot ulcers who underwent limb salvage with a combination of revascularization (bypass surgery or endovascular angioplasty) and free flap transfers were reviewed...

Spontaneous cervical extradural pseudoaneurysms or arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) are rare vascular diseases. We report a case of ruptured occipital artery (OA) pseudoaneurysm associated with occipital-internal jugular vein (IJV) fistula in neurofibromatosis type 1. Endovascular internal trapping via the OA was attempted; however, the distal entry of the OA could not be accessed because of the high shunt flow and tortuosity of the OA. The distal part of the OA was obliterated with coil via a transvenous approach through the IJV and pseudoaneurysm...

BACKGROUND: Carotid stent and/or angioplasty (CAS) via the transfemoral route with distal protection carries twice the risk of stroke and/or death when compared with carotid endarterectomy (CEA) in multiple randomized trials. Potential causes for this include disadvantaged aortic arch anatomy and the need to traverse the lesion to place a distal protection device. This report describes the technique and our experience with direct CAS using flow reversal for embolic protection. METHODS: University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) division of Vascular and Endovascular surgery was a participant in the multi-institutional Roadster Trial of high-risk patients...

Arterial pseudoaneurysms associated with osteochondromas are rare and most publications on this topic are case reports. The management of this double entity is not standardized. We wanted to update it. Literature searches on MEDLINE and EMBASE were performed using the keywords "artery pseudoaneurysm" and "osteochondroma". Patient demographics, clinical presentations, diagnostic and therapeutic modalities were reviewed. In sum, 101 cases were analyzed. Overall, young adults represented the majority of the affected population with a masculine preponderancy (86%)...
