BACKGROUND AND AIMS: There is strong evidence that fat accumulating in non-adipose sites, "ectopic fat", is associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD), including vascular calcification. Most previous studies of this association have assessed only a single ectopic fat depot. Therefore, our aim was to assess the association of total, regional, and ectopic fat with abdominal aorto-illiac calcification (AAC) and coronary artery calcification (CAC) in 798 African ancestry men. METHODS: Participants (mean age 62) were from the Tobago Bone Health Study cohort...

AIMS: Aim of this study was to evaluate vascular complications using the "parallel suture technique" in patients receiving Edwards SAPIEN XT (SXT) or SAPIEN S3 (S3) transcatheter heart valve (THV). METHODS AND RESULTS: Two hundred consecutive patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis treated with TF-TAVI were included in this study where the "parallel suture technique" was applied for vascular access site closure. This was achieved by placing the sutures medial and lateral to the puncture site...

Background: The number of patients with placenta accreta, percreta and increta is increasing. The morbidity and mortality are higher mostly due to hemorrhage. Therefore, new methods to reduce the risk of severe bleeding are necessary. Methods: Three patients were treated in collaboration by obstetricians, urologists, anesthesiologists, and radiologists. An MRI of the pelvis was performed and the diameters and lengths of the iliac arteries were measured to avoid fluoroscopy during the preoperative placement of catheter balloons into the iliac arteries...

Renal ectopia also known as ectopic kidney is an embryological renal anomaly characterised by abnormal anatomical location of one or both of the kidneys. This can occur in various forms such as (1) crossed fused renal ectopia, (2) ectopic thoracic kidney and (3) pelvic kidneys. The lump kidney is one of the six variations of crossed fused ectopic kidney. Throughout life, the patient may remain asymptomatic, however, symptomatic patients may present with minor traumatic injuries due to the abnormal location or normal kidney pathologies...

BACKGROUND: Central venous pressure (CVP) is traditionally obtained through subclavian or internal jugular central catheters; however, many patients who could benefit from CVP monitoring have only femoral lines. The accuracy of illiac venous pressure (IVP) as a measure of CVP is unknown, particularly following laparotomy. METHODS: This was a prospective, observational study. Patients who had both internal jugular or subclavian lines and femoral lines already in place were eligible for the study...

Rupture of isolated aneurysm of common iliac artery is a relative seldom finding in vascular surgery. Nowadays are in therapy of this severe conditions used conventional as well as endovascular procedures. Our case report document, that in high risk patients with convenient anatomical conditions endovascular therapy is a safe and effective therapy, that can reduce mortality of these patients.

INTRODUCTION: Replanting the inferior mesentery artery during infrarenal aortic aneurysm repair is a measure which might prevent development of colon ischemia under certain circumstances. These circumstances and patients who would benefit from this procedure are not well defined. CASE REPORT: 64-year old man underwent an elective operation on infrarenal AAA at our institution in December 2009. From preoperative CT angiography we knew about the accessory right renal artery branching directly from AAA and bilateral occlusion of hypogastric arteries...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of our study was to compare the identification of sentinel lymph nodes (SLN) by blue dye and (99m) Tc; to evaluate detection rate per patient and specific side detection rate (SSDR) of SLN, distribution of SLN and distribution of positive SLN and false negative rate of the methods. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From February 2000 until September 2004, we included 183 women with early stage cervical carcinoma. We evaluated two methods of detection of SLN (100 cases by Patent blue, 83 cases by Patent blue with (99m)Tc)...

The use of Doppler ultrasound was investigated to determine if it would aid in guiding the application of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to stop bleeding from punctured vessels. Major vessels (abdominal aorta, illiac, carotid, common femoral and superficial femoral arteries and the jugular vein) were surgically exposed, punctured and treated in anesthetized pigs. Treatment was applied when the Doppler sounds indicated the focus coincided with the bleeding site. In 89 treatment trials, the average time to achieve major hemostasis (a point where bleeding was reduced to a level of only oozing) was 8 s, and for complete hemostasis was 13 s...

Internal illiac and ovarian artery ligation was performed in 7 patients as a life saving measure (group I) and in 12 patients as a prophylactic procedure (group II) in 116 pelvic operations for gynaecological malignancy. The author presents own surgical technique for internal iliac and ovarian arteries ligation. The purpose of analysis was to identify a surgical complications after the ligation in the study groups. Surgical complications in the group of prophylactic ligation were statistically significant low...

Biological porcine tissue was modified by the direct coupling of sulphonated poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO-SO3) containing amino acid end groups after glutaraldehyde fixation. The calcification of the modified tissue [bioprosthetic tissue (BT)-PEO-SO3] and control (BT control) was investigated by in vivo rate subdermal, canine aorta-illiac shunt and right ventricle-pulmonary artery shunt implantation models. Less calcium deposition of BT-PEO-SP3 than of BT control was observed in in vivo tests. Such a reduced calcification of BT-PEO-SO3 can be explained by decreases of residual glutaraldehyde groups, a space filling effect and, therefore, improved biostability and synergistic blood-compatible effects of PEO and SO3 groups after the covalent binding of PEO-SO3 to tissue...

A case of multiple myeloma forming an intracranial mass which invaded the skull base was reported. A 72-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital because of left oculomotor paresis. Plain craniograms showed multiple punched out lesions. A CT scan demonstrated a mass lesion, which was homogeneously slightly enhanced with contrast medium, in the middle cranial fossa. MRI, both T1 and T2 weighted images, showed an isodensity mass. In the carotid angiograms the tumor was fed by the right branches of the cavernous portion of the internal carotid artery and the maxillary artery...

Increased haemodynamic forces in the arterial wall may be among the factors responsible for atherogenesis and for determining the severity of the pathological process at a particular site. The present work was designed to help explain apparent asymmetries in the distribution of atheroma at the aorto-iliac bifurcation. A technique was devised for the quantitative evaluation of the geometric anatomy of this region. Measurements were made on 12 female and 14 male cadavers. In all cases there was an asymmetrical left lateral orientation of the abdominal aorta which resulted in a longer right common iliac artery, smaller left common iliac take-off angle and larger left radius of curvature at the aortic-common illiac bifurcation...

147 operations for renovascular hypertension were performed in 125 patients. 136 of the operations were vascular reconstructions. Aortorenal by-pass, using saphenous vein as a graft, was found to be a satisfactory technique. An aneurysmatic dilatation developed twice, which on both occasions was attributed to a stenosis proximal to the graft. Two failures also occurred among the 12 patients undergoing renal autotransplantation, both due to an illiac vein thrombosis, obstructing the renal vein. The majority of the six deaths were due to myocardial infarctions or uremia...

Crossover femorofemoral grafts continue to provide satisfactory long-term patency with low morbidity and mortality in the treatment of unilateral atherosclerotic iliac artery occlusion. In our series of patients, early failures were primarily a result of the inability to provide adequate runoff for the graft, and late failures were due to progressive atherosclerotic involvement of runoff vessels. Clear-cut progression of the atherosclerotic process in the donor iliac artery segment has not been observed in this series...
