An internal septum within a basilar artery aneurysm is an infrequent anomaly and is very rarely reported in the literature. We report a 62-year-old lady that was incidentally diagnosed with basilar tip aneurysm. Further imaging with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed internal septation within this aneurysm which was later confirmed with digital subtraction angiography (DSA). She underwent coil embolisation, which involved technical manipulation of the microcatheter and the balloon to enable coiling of each separate aneurysm compartment...

Previous case studies reported nine patients with cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVM) who developed amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) after AVM embolisation. Here, we describe three novel cases of ALS which developed 13-34 years after treatment, including embolisation, of cerebral AVM. This study provides further arguments supporting the thesis that embolisation of cerebral AVM might influence the risk of later ALS development.

Background. Splenic artery aneurysm (SAA) is an uncommon and difficult diagnosis. SAA is more common in females. Only 20% of SAA is symptomatic and may present as a rupture. A ruptured SAA is associated with a 25% mortality rate. Case Presentation. We present a case of a male patient with a bleeding SAA that rapidly increased in size. Distal coiling was technically impossible and despite proximal coil embolisation the SAA continued to bleed. A laparotomy including splenectomy and partial pancreatectomy was performed with an uneventful patient recovery...

Covered stents offer an effective bail-out strategy in vessel perforations, are an alternative to surgery for the exclusion of coronary aneurysms, and have a potential role in the treatment of friable embolisation-prone plaques. The aim of this manuscript is to offer an overview of currently available platforms and to report results obtained in prior studies.

AIM: To evaluate the efficacy of prostatic artery embolisation (PAE) in lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) related to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) at short- and mid-term follow-up. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The current study included 484 BPH patients from seven eligible studies. A meta-analysis was performed to determine the mean differences in parameters associated with LUTS, including the international prostate symptom score (IPSS), peak urinary flow (Qmax), post-void residual volume (PVR), quality of life score (QoL), prostate-specific antigen level (PSA), and prostatic volume (PV), between baseline and follow-up periods...

INTRODUCTION: Spinal metastases secondary to renal cell carcinoma are associated with significant intra-operative blood loss. Our aim was to assess if embolisation reduced the intra-operative blood loss and transfusion requirement. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of 25 patients undergoing surgery between 2003 and 2011. RESULTS: 14 underwent pre-operative embolisation; 11 did not. There was no significant difference in intra-operative blood loss, 1336 ml vs 1492 ml in the non-embolised (p value = 0...

PURPOSE OF STUDY: To identify the remediable factors in the quality of care provided to patients with severe gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. METHOD: All hospital admissions in the first four months of 2013 with ICD10 coding for GI bleeding who received a transfusion of 4 units or more of blood. Up to five cases/hospital randomly selected for structured case note peer review. National availability of GI bleeding services data derived from organisational questionnaire completed by all hospitals...

The role of preoperative embolization in alleviating intra operative haemorrhage in small to medium sized JNA is dubious. We report an unusual case of JNA who developed cerebral edema, hemiplegia and aphasia following glue embolisation and underwent frontotemporal craniectomy. This drastic aftermath of embolisation challenges the safety of preoperative embolisation in such lesions.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe previously unrecognised or under-recognised adverse events associated with Melody® valve implantation. BACKGROUND: In rare diseases and conditions, it is typically not feasible to conduct large-scale safety trials before drug or device approval. Therefore, post-market surveillance mechanisms are necessary to detect rare but potentially serious adverse events. METHODS: We reviewed the United States Food and Drug Administration's Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience (MAUDE) database and conducted a structured literature review to evaluate adverse events associated with on- and off-label Melody® valve implantation...

We present a case of Lemierre's disease complicated by pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm. A previously well woman aged 43 years presented with a history of a sore throat and worsening dyspnoea. She was diagnosed with a severe cavitating bilateral pneumonia complicated by internal jugular vein thrombosis consistent with a diagnosis of Lemierre's disease. She had an episode of massive haemoptysis which was confirmed to be due to a pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm which required radiologically guided embolisation...

OBJECTIVES: Haemoptysis occurring in a Behçet's syndrome (BS) patient with pulmonary artery involvement (PAI) during follow-up is usually regarded as PAI relapse. However, bronchial artery enlargement (BAE) may be the source of haemoptysis in some patients. METHODS: A chart review at the end of December 2014 revealed 118 patients with PAI in our centre since 1979. Nine (all men) had recurrent haemoptysis during follow-up which could not be explained with relapse of PAI...

A Caucasian man aged 28 years with a history of pancreatitis presented with fatigue, intermittent melaena and severe anaemia. Symptomatic treatment for anaemia was coupled with thorough investigation to localise the source of gastrointestinal haemorrhage. Two oesophagogastroduodenoscopies and colonoscopies failed to identify a cause. CT abdomen revealed splenomegaly secondary to splenic vein thrombosis with evidence of portal hypertension and small collateral vessels. A CT mesenteric angiogram revealed a splenic artery pseudoaneurysm as the likely source of bleeding...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of intrauterine balloon tamponade (IUBT) for management of severe postpartum haemorrhage (PPH). To identify the factors predicting IUBT failure. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. SETTING: Ten maternity units in a perinatal network. POPULATION: Women treated by IUBT from July 2010 to March 2013. METHODS: The global IUBT success rate was expressed as the number of women with severe PPH who were successfully treated by IUBT divided by the total number treated by IUBT...

Juvenile giant fibroadenoma is a very rare breast disease affecting young girls of premenarche and adolescent ages. It is a benign fibroepithelial tumour characterised by stromal and epithelial proliferation that causes rapidly growing breast mass. Bilateral symmetrical involvement is extremely rare. In this article, we describe this entity in a girl aged 13 years who presented with bilateral gigantically enlarged breasts. Ultrasonography and MRI showed large, multilobulated masses involving both breasts entirely...

The underlying case report describes the successful endovascular prevention of an aortic injury by a bone cement skid after kyphoplasty. The intervention was performed in order to prohibit fatal aortic rupture or embolisation and underlines the role of vascular surgery techniques in interdisciplinary clinical networks.

PURPOSE: This study aims to identify factors influencing outcome in brain arteriovenous malformations (BAVM) treated with endovascular embolisation. We also assessed the feasibility of using machine learning techniques to prognosticate and predict outcome and compared this to conventional statistical analyses. METHODS: A retrospective study of patients undergoing endovascular treatment of BAVM over a 22-year period in a national neuroscience centre was performed...
