UNLABELLED: Endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) allows the exclusion of the dilated aneurismal segment of the aorta from the systematic circulation. The procedure requires, however, that the endograft extends to the healthy parts of the aorta above and below the aneurysm, yet the neck of a juxtarenal aortic aneurysm (JRA) is too short for a standard endovascular repair. Fenestrated endovascular aortic repair (f-EVAR) provides a solution to overcome this problem by enabling the continuation of blood flow to the renal and visceral arteries through holes or 'fenestrations' in the graft...

PURPOSE: To determine the potential of minimally invasive postmortem computed tomographic (CT) angiography combined with image-guided tissue biopsy of the myocardium and lungs in decedents who were thought to have died of acute chest disease and to compare this method with conventional autopsy as the reference standard. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The responsible justice department and ethics committee approved this study. Twenty corpses (four female corpses and 16 male corpses; age range, 15-80 years), all of whom were reported to have had antemortem acute chest pain, were imaged with postmortem whole-body CT angiography and underwent standardized image-guided biopsy...

Fibromuscular dysplasia or fibromuscular hyperplasia is a rare non-atherosclerotic and non-inflammatory vascular disease that primarily involves medium-size and small arteries, most commonly the renal and carotid arteries, and less frequently the vertebral, iliac, subclavian or visceral arteries (mesenteric, hepatic, splenic). Antiphospholipid syndrome is one of the most commonly acquired hypercoagulable states, defined by the association of laboratory evidence of anti-phospholipid antibodies with arterial or venous thrombosis or recurrent pregnancy losses...

A 69-year-old man while being treated for type B aortic dissection was also found to have acute myocardial infarction. The patient initially was treated conservatively. Prophylactic anticoagulant treatment of potential thrombosis was not given because of aortic dissection. Stent-graft implantation to the thoracic aorta was considered at the time. Unexpectedly, elective computer tomography (CT), revealed 2 large thrombi at the bifurcation of the pulmonary trunk. The patient did not show any symptoms of pulmonary embolism...

BM-573 (N-terbutyl-N'-[2-(4'-methylphenylamino)-5-nitro-benzenesulfonyl]urea), a torsemide derivative, is a novel non-carboxylic dual TXA2 synthase inhibitor and receptor antagonist. The pharmacological profile of the drug is characterized by a higher affinity for the thromboxane receptor than that of SQ-29548, one of the most powerful antagonists described to date, by a complete prevention of human platelet aggregation induced by arachidonic acid at a lower dose than either torsemide or sulotroban, and by a significantly prolonged closure time measured by the platelet function analyser (PFA-100)...

PURPOSE: This study was undertaken to assess the results of endovascular aortic aneurysm repair with the Lifepath abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) graft system. METHOD: In a prospective clinical trial, 23 centers used the Lifepath System balloon-expandable, modular bifurcated stent graft for elective endovascular aortic aneurysm repair. Stent grafts were sized according to computed tomographic angiography-based diameter measurements. All repairs were performed in the operating room through bilateral surgically exposed femoral arteries...

From May 1984 through June 1993, 162 patients have undergone orthotopic heart transplantation at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. Thirty-three deaths occurred, and postmortem examinations were performed in 29 of these cases. This study evaluated the surgical anastomoses of these patients' hearts, an aspect of orthotopic heart transplantation that has not been well described in the literature. The major findings encountered were two cases of stenosis at the left atrial anastomosis, one case of aortic anastomotic tear, one case of pulmonary artery anastomotic kinking, one case of left atrial suture line mural thrombus and possible coronary embolism, and one case of extramural compression of a coronary artery by an anastomotic suture...

Computed tomography (CT) has emerged as a new imaging method for the diagnosis and evaluation of cardiovascular disease. With CT body scanners and contrast enhancement, evaluation of aortic dissections and aneurysms, coronary bypass graft patency, cardiovascular thrombus, cardiac tumors, and pericardial disease is possible. On occasion, this technique provides clinically useful information that is not available with other imaging methods. Electrocardiographic gating retrospectively or prospectively improves the image resolution of CT scans, but a new ultrafast CT scanner with a scan time of 30 to 50 milliseconds offers the greatest promise for expanding the application of the technology for cardiovascular diagnosis...
