A 73-year-old woman was admitted for left groin bleeding through an open wound near a fungating left inguinal mass from advanced anal carcinoma. The interventional radiology service placed left iliac vein and common femoral vein stents as there was concern for communication and involvement of the left common femoral vein with the open wound, contributing to groin hemorrhage. After the procedure, the patient developed limb ischemia related to mass effect of the stent on the left common femoral vein stent artery...

BACKGROUND: Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a complex and highly prevalent pathology. It has been estimated that ∼8.5 million people in the United States are affected by PAD, of which 12%-20% are older than age 60. The TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus (TASC) guidelines classified aortoiliac atherosclerotic disease based on morphology and level of lesions. TASC II guidelines recommend bilateral surgical bypass to the femoral arteries for TASC II C and D lesions. The aortobifemoral bypass (ABF) has been considered the gold standard in the treatment of aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD)...

Introduction: Scaphoid fractures are not very common and frequently remain undiagnosed, presenting in non-union and persistent wrist pain. Options for scaphoid fracture treatment have been described over several decades, however, none with an optimal solution to achieve union along with good hand function. We describe here, the use of vascularised corticoperiosteal bone grafts from the medial femoral condyle (MFC) as a solution for the difficult problem of scaphoid fracture non-union...

The anterolateral thigh (ALT) flap is one of the most commonly used flap worldwide in reconstructive surgery, as both free flap and pedicled local flap. Here, we report the use of a free split anterolateral thigh (s-ALT) flap for reconstruction of a 14 cm × 16 cm soft tissue defect of the left upper posterior thigh region due to sarcoma resection in a patient. The ALT flap was harvested based on two musculocutaneous perforators from the right thigh and anastomosed to the contralateral descending branch of the lateral circumflex femoral artery (LCFA) in perforator-to-perforator manner, in order to gain more pedicle length and being able to cover the posterior thigh defect...

OBJECTIVES: Cardiogenic shock constitutes the final common pathway of cardiac dysfunction associated with tissue hypoperfusion and organ failure. Besides treatment of the underlying cause, temporary mechanical circulatory support serves as a supportive measure. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation can effectively prevent hypoxemia and end-organ dysfunction, but knowledge about patient selection, risks, and complications remains sparse. DATA SOURCES: Clinical observation...

BACKGROUND: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is strongly associated with peripheral artery disease (PAD). Detection of subclinical PAD may allow early interventions for or prevention of PAD in persons with CKD. Whether the presence of atherosclerotic plaque and femoral intima-media thickness (IMT) are associated with kidney function is unknown. METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional observational study of 1029 community-living adults. We measured superficial and common femoral artery IMT and atherosclerotic plaque presence by ultrasound...

OBJECTIVE: Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (DHCA) are commonly used in cardiac surgery. However, the mortality and morbidity are still high in practice. Developing novel protective stategies and elucidating the underlying mechanisms for the pathophysiological consequences of DHCA have been hampered because of the absence of a satisfactory recovery animal model. The aim of this study was to establish a novel and safe DHCA model without blood priming in rats to study the pathophysiology of potential complications...

PURPOSE: Vascular calcification is common in chronic kidney disease (CKD) and predicts poor patient outcomes. While computed tomography is the gold standard for evaluation of vascular calcification, plain radiograph offers a simpler and less costly alternative. The calcification of abdominal aorta, iliac and femoral arteries has been evaluated by plain radiograph, but the data on their outcome predictabilities are still limited. The present study investigated the role of abdominal aortic calcification (AAC) and pelvic arterial calcification (PAC) in predicting overall morality in non-dialysis CKD stages 2-5 (CKD 2-5), maintenance hemodialysis (HD) and long-term kidney transplant (KT) patients...
