BACKGROUND: As a route towards face bioengineering, our group previously reported the production of a complete scaffold production by perfusion-decellularization of a porcine ear subunit graft and partial recellularization. In order to extend the scaffold to the whole face and to down-scale it, we applied our findings to a rodent hemi-facial graft model. METHODS: After euthanasia, seven full-thickness rat hemi-face grafts were harvested with the CCA and the EJV as pedicle, and cannulated...

Internal carotid artery dissection (ICAD) has become an increasingly recognized cause of cerebrovascular accidents in young and middle-aged patients. We report 2 cases of hypoglossal nerve palsy in the course of dissection of the internal carotid arteries. The first patient was admitted to the Department of Neurology due to swallowing difficulty, speech articulation disorders and numbness of the right half of the tongue for 4 weeks. Extracranial vessel ultrasound (US) and transcranial colour Doppler (TCD) visualized thrombus causing occlusion of the right internal carotid artery (RICA)...

BACKGROUND: Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) has become lately the procedure of choice in the treatment of most pathologies of descending thoracic aorta. Aortic arch aneurysms also came to be treated by TEVAR with various hybrid techniques or custom made scalloped/fenestrated stent-grafts. Zone 0; ascending TEVAR is more challenging than TEVAR of the descending thoracic aorta or aortic arch because of the more complex pathology, hemodynamics, and anatomy. Ascending TEVAR can be a lifesaving treatment in selected high surgical risk patients...

The popliteal fossa is the site of several diseases that may be similar in the clinical setting but very different in etiology, treatment, and prognosis. The contemporary presentation of more than one of these conditions is a rare though potentially fatal combination that may lead to a delay in the diagnosis and therapeutic approach. In this report, we describe the case of a patient who presented at our Vascular Department for persistent pain and severe swelling of the right popliteal fossa 8 months after the surgical treatment of a symptomatic popliteal aneurysm by mean of a Dacron prosthetic graft...

REVIEW
Davide Di Lazzaro, Federico Crusco
Invasive coronary angiography (ICA) is the traditional method for the follow-up of graft patency in coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) patients. Nevertheless, the advent of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) opened new perspectives for using a noninvasive, equally reliable method to study CABG patients. This review article will analyze the current feasibility of modern multi-slice MDCT, as well as its future perspectives.

BACKGROUND: The ascending aorta is an uncommon site for non-infective thrombus. In non-aneurysmal and non-atherosclerotic vessels this condition becomes extremely rare, while it represents a source of potential cerebral and peripheral embolic events. Currently, there is no consensus in the guidelines on how to treat a free floating thrombus in ascending aorta, therefore we present our decision making process and therapeutic strategy. CASE PRESENTATION: A healthy 48-year-old man was hospital admitted with acute abdominal pain...

BACKGROUND: Understanding the difference of Adamkiewicz artery (AKA) presentation in healthy and diseased subjects, and the influence of atherosclerotic factors prevalent in aortic disease patients, are important for aortic disease therapeutic planning. This study used a 320-detector row computed tomography (CT) device to examine the impact of clinical aspects of AKA identification in individuals with and without aortic disease. METHODS: Angio-CTs obtained from 115 patients were assessed and the individuals grouped according to the presence or absence of aortic disease...

Scrotal haematoma is an extremely rare complication after cardiac catheterisation (CC) with only few cases reported in literature. We report a 56-year-old patient who developed large scrotal haematoma after CC via transfemoral approach requiring blood transfusion due to haemodynamic instability. After an uneventful elective procedure, he was discharged with a collagen plug-based vascular closure device (Angio-Seal). He developed sudden onset, excruciating groin pain with scrotal swelling and shock. Bleeding was stopped with manual compression over the femoral artery and 2 units of packed red blood cells were transfused...

OBJECTIVE: Conventional multiplanar reconstruction (MPR) imaging can be used as a tool for planning oblique puncture procedures, but it takes a few minutes to reconstruct and is not appropriate for real-time CT fluoroscopy-assisted puncture. Recently, new MPR technology has been used that requires only 8 s and makes it possible to obtain a nearly real-time CT fluoroscopy-assisted oblique puncture. We refer to it as "direct MPR." This is the first clinical report of this technique. METHODS: Since February 2016, we have performed real-time, CT-guided oblique punctures with this new technology, "direct MPR," using an angio-CT system...

INTRODUCTION: Reconstruction has evolved long way from primary closure to flaps. As time evolved, better understanding of vascularity of flap has led to the development of innovative reconstructive techniques. These flaps can be raised from various parts of the body for reconstruction and have shown least donor site morbidity. We use one such peroneal artery perforator flap for tongue reconstruction with advantage of thin pliable flap, minimal donor site morbidity and hidden scar. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Our patient 57yrs old lady underwent wide local excision with selective neck dissection...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to analyse the morphometry of the intracranial segment of the vertebral artery in the context of clinical usefulness. The results were compared with published data available in full-text archived medical journals. MATERIALS AND METHODS: More than 100 DSA (digital subtraction angiography) and 3D angio-CT (computed tomography) examinations were used to measure the following parameters: the whole and partial length of V4 in characteristic anatomical points, the diameter in three places (on the level of foramen magnum, in point of exit to the PICA, and in the vertebro-basilar junction), the angle of connection to the VAs, and all anatomical variations including fenestration, duplication, dolichoectasia or absent artery...

Acute stroke has become an increasingly treatable cause of acute neurological deficits. Indeed, over the last two decades, the introduction of first thrombolysis, and now thrombectomy has improved patient outcomes and extended the therapeutic window. Computed tomography has been established as the most simple and readily available technique for the diagnosis and management of patients with acute stroke. Indeed, CT allows easy confirmation or exclusion of acute hemorrhage on the one hand, and on the other hand the early signs are quite reliable in the detection of ischemia...

BACKGROUND The arteriovenous (AV) loop model enables axial vascularization to gain a functional microcirculatory system in tissue engineering constructs in vivo. These constructs might replace surgical flaps for the treatment of complex wounds in the future. Today, free flaps are often exposed to high-dose radiation after defect coverage, according to guideline-oriented treatment plans. Vascular response of AV loop-based constructs has not been evaluated after radiation, although it is of particular importance...
