We report a case of a 56-year-old male patient with a life-threatening left common femoral artery bleeding due to tumor erosion. The patient had a history of advanced high-grade pleomorphic leiomyosarcoma of the left groin with pulmonary metastasis. Clinical examination revealed a massive tumor bulking at the left groin with necrosis and phleb- and lymphedema. Given the circumstances, open surgery was not possible. Thus, it was decided to treat the patient with an endovascular procedure. The postprocedural course was uneventful, the patient received blood product and was hemodynamically stable...

BACKGROUND: Since 1991 many studies evaluated the link between cardiovascular diseases and osteoporosis, two age-related conditions, but the main common pathologic pathway has not been determined yet. The histological similarity between arterial calcified plaque and bone matrix and involvement of similar cells and mediators provide a special field of research. Therefore in the present study, we aimed to evaluate the relationship between coronary artery calcium score (CACS) as a surrogate marker of atherosclerosis and bone mediators and parameters in postmenopausal women...

We report the case for a 44-year-old patient without medical history, admitted in our department for bilateral acute limb ischemia (H6). The patient was hemodynamically stable and the physical examination shows limb sever ischemia (no femoral arterial pulses, coldness, cyanosis and paralysis). Abdominal CT angiography showed a complete occlusion of the infra renal abdominal aorta compatible with embolus. An embolectomy with Fogarty catheters was performed. Echocardiography showed a mass in the left atrium. Pathological examination of the material embolic confirmed the diagnosis of the cardiac myxoma...

We present the case of a patient with a history of aortobifemoral grafting who presented with left lower extremity ischemic rest pain. Aortofemoral angiography was performed through a left radial access and showed a long, calcified total occlusion of the left superficial femoral artery (SFA) and a subtotal popliteal occlusion. The popliteal artery and SFA were crossed retrogradely through a 4-Fr anterior tibial access; the retrograde devices went subintimally and did not reenter at the common femoral level...

INTRODUCTION: The Endologix developed an aortoiliac stent graft system that is different than the conventional implantation technique (Nellix, EVAS-endovascular aneurysm sealing system). The first implantation in Hungary has been performed in the beginning of 2016 at Heart and Vascular Center. METHODS: Nellix: two endobags surrounding ballon-expandable covered stent (10 mm) with optional length, biocompatible polymer which is able to be injected into the endobags and a procedure-coordinating console...

INTRODUCTION: While acute appendicitis is a common surgical problem, the simultaneous occurrence of appendicitis and an infected iliac artery pseudoaneurysm is exceedingly rare. We report the successful treatment of an infected right external iliac artery pseudo aneurysm in the 1setting of acute appendicitis. PRESENTATION OF CASE: The patient is an 83-year-old male who presents with severe sepsis, right lower quadrant and right leg pain. Additional past medical history is significant for rectal cancer status post resection and radiation therapy in 1997...

OBJECTIVE: Central venous occlusion is a common occurrence in patients with end stage renal disease. Placement of upper extremity arteriovenous access in patients with occlusion of the brachiocephalic veins is often not an option. Avoidance of lower extremity vascular access can decrease morbidity and infection. TECHNIQUE: The central venous lesions were crossed centrally via femoral access. The wire was retrieved in the neck extravascular. A HeRo catheter was then placed in the right atrium and completed with an arterial anastomosis...

Persistent sciatic artery is a rare developmental anomaly prone to atherosclerotic disease. We present a case of successful endovascular therapy for left persistent sciatic artery that was occluded at the distal site. The angioplasty was performed with both antegrade approach from contralateral common femoral artery and retrograde approach from ipsilateral superficial femoral artery. The guidewire was advanced via collateral channel and crossed through the lesion retrogradely. Rendez-vous technique was performed and the lesion was successfully dilated by balloon inflation...

INTRODUCTION: and Objectives: Proximal fixation loss following endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) creates a clinical dilemma. Typically endovascular salvage requires adequate aortic neck below the renal arteries, in cases with no infrarenal neck proximal extension into the paravisceral aorta using parallel grafts provides an alternative to open graft explant. We present our experience at a tertiary care center with endovascular management of proximal fixation loss following EVAR using parallel stent grafting techniques to preserve renal and visceral branches...

OBJECTIVE: We have previously shown that exogenous administration of the nuclear protein high mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) improves angiogenesis after tissue ischemia. Antagonizing HMGB1 prolongs muscle necrosis and deters regeneration. In this study, we evaluated HMGB1 expression in peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and the mechanisms that promote its release in a murine model of hindlimb ischemia. Specifically, we investigated how chloroquine (CQ), a commonly employed disease-modifying antirheumatic drug, promotes HMGB1 release from muscle...

REVIEW
Stephan Heo, Peter Soukas, Herbert D Aronow
Surgical endarterectomy has long been the standard approach for treating atherosclerotic stenosis in the common femoral artery. Its major advantage is the associated long-term patency, which approaches 95% at 5 years. Nevertheless, recent studies have suggested that percutaneous treatment may be a valid alternative to surgery.

The aim of this study was to assess the difficulties met with possible recommendations in management of flush common iliac artery occlusive disease (FCIAOD). This a prospective study assessing FCIAOD along the period of 24 months. We defined FCIAOD as more than 90% occlusion of diameter of common iliac artery (CIA) with less than 2 mm patent iliac stump from its origin from the abdominal aorta. Our study included 51 cases. Technical success was achieved in 47 patients (92%); 82.5% of cases were done via two accesses (65% of cases were done using bilateral femoral)...

Objectives. In this study, we aimed to demonstrate the role of sildenafil (an antagonist of phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5)) and donepezil (a specific and reversible inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase (Ach)) in increasing ischemia-induced angiogenesis. Method. Critical limb ischemia was induced by ligation of the common femoral artery followed by ligation of the common iliac artery. The operated animals were divided into 3 groups: receiving sildenafil, receiving donepezil, and surgery alone; the contralateral lower limb was used as a negative control...

We report the endovascular treatment of an arterio-venous fistula involving the right common iliac artery and left common iliac veinin a 48 year old male patient who had previously undergone lumbar spine disc surgery. A balloon expandable covered stent was deployed in the common iliac artery which got partially dislodged into the aorta during attempted post dilatation of the stent. The proximal end of the stent was secured in place with an inflated balloon in the aorta, introduced from the contralateral iliac artery, allowing successfulretrieval and dilatation of the stent graft through the ipsilateral femoral vascular access...

BACKGROUND: In the elective setting, both open surgical and endovascular therapies may be reasonable treatment options for many vascular conditions. However, an unstable or unfit patient with a vascular emergency may be less able to tolerate a definitive open vascular operation. We now report the outcomes for "damage control" endografting for unstable or unfit patients with vascular emergencies as bridge therapy before definitive open therapy. METHODS: A retrospective review of patients who underwent damage control endografting over a 9-year period (2005-2014) was performed...

Pseudoaneurysm is a relatively common complication of arterial injury. Arterial pseudoaneurysms have many different etiologies, including trauma, iatrogenic injury, vascular repair, infection, and vasculitides. In this case report, we present a pseudoaneurysm created by a fracture of superficial femoral artery stent secondary to a mechanical fall. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a symptomatic pseudoaneurysm caused by a superficial femoral artery stent fracture. The large, unruptured pseudoaneurysm in this case was successfully treated with a covered stent and pseudoaneurysm exclusion...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Vascular biomarkers are associated with risk burden and are capable to predict the development of future cardiovascular (CV) events; yet, their additive predictive value over and above established risk algorithms seems to be only modest. The present study evaluated the cross-sectional associations between vascular biomarkers, 10-year Framingham risk (FR) and prevalent CV events in a population with a high prevalence of hypertension and diabetes. METHODS AND RESULTS: As many as 681 subjects (419 men, age = 60 ± 10 years, 282 diabetics, 335 hypertensives, mean FR score = 22...

BACKGROUND: The measurement of femoral intima-media thickness (IMT) is underutilized in the clinical practice, although it is a surrogate marker of cardiovascular disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 388 Hungarian and Italian twins (121 monozygotic, 73 dizygotic pairs) underwent bilateral B-mode sonography of femoral arteries. IMT was measured by semiautomated software, where available, or by calipers. RESULTS: Within-pair correlation in monozygotic twins was higher than in dizygotics for each parameter...
