Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is most commonly defined as a maximal diameter of the abdominal aorta in excess of 3 cm in either anterior-posterior or transverse planes or, alternatively, as a focal dilation ≥ 1.5 times the diameter of the normal adjacent arterial segment. Risk factors for the development of AAA include age > 60, tobacco use, male gender, Caucasian race, and family history of AAA. Aneurysm growth and rupture risk appear to be associated with persistent tobacco use, female gender, and chronic pulmonary disease...

BACKGROUND: Guidelines allow percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation (PPVI) in conduits above 16mm diameter. Balloon dilatation of a conduit to a diameter>110% of the original implant size is also not recommended. We analyzed patients undergoing PPVI in such conditions. METHODS AND RESULTS: Nine patients (May 2008-July 2016) from 8 institutions underwent PPVI in conduits <16mm diameter. Five patients with 16-18mm conduit diameter underwent PPVI after over-expansion of the conduit>110%...

OBJECTIVES: Systemic left-to-right shunting causes pulmonary arteriopathy, leading to progressive cardiopulmonary failure and a poor prognosis. In this study, we examined the extraglycemic effect of a synthetic glucagon-like peptide, exendin-4, on pulmonary arteriopathy regression and cardiopulmonary function in nondiabetic rats. METHODS: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) was induced by monocrotaline (60 mg/kg, subcutaneous) injection followed by the creation of an aortocaval fistula...

OBJECTIVES: With the increasing use of multi-detector CT, the number of detected cases with coronary-to-pulmonary artery fistula (CPAF) has increased. Several previous studies reported severe cases of angina, but no appropriate tests to evaluate myocardial perfusion for patients with CPAF have been established. We evaluated the hemodynamic characteristics of CPAF using thallium-201 (Tl-201) single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Tl-201 SPECT was performed in 17 patients with CPAF, but without evidence of coronary artery disease on coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) (age, 58...

The neck, being not protected by skeleton, is vulnerable to external trauma and injury which can involve blood vessels, muscles, nerves, and trachea. Carotid injuries can be potentially life-threatening by hemorrhage and stroke. We present a case of a 26-year-old manual worker who presented a neck injury caused by a metallic projectile. The injury involved the right common carotid artery with an internal jugular vein fistula, and tracheal damage. The patient was managed with surgical repair of the tracheal lesion, reconstruction of the carotid section using a PTFE graft bypass, and ligation of the internal jugular vein...

REVIEW
Colin Wallis, Clare A McLaren
Tracheobronchomalacia is a rare but clinically troublesome condition in paediatrics. The softening of the major airways - which can include some or all of the tracheobronchial tree can lead to symptoms ranging from the minor (harsh barking cough, recurrent chest infections) to severe respiratory difficulties including prolonged ventilator support and 'near death attacks'. The causes are broadly divided into intrinsic softening of the airway wall which is considered a primary defect (e.g. syndromes; post tracheo-oesophageal fistula repair; extreme prematurity) or secondary malacia due to external compression from vascular structures or cardiac components...

Coronary to pulmonary artery fistulas (CPAFs) are abnormal communications between the coronary and pulmonary arteries. They are an uncommon congenital heart disease and usually remain asymptomatic until later in life. However, there is no consensus on their management. We present four adult patients who required surgery for coronary to pulmonary artery fistulas to illuminate this issue. The clinical presentations were variable depending on the anatomical features of coronary to pulmonary artery fistulas and the presence or absence of other cardiac diseases...

RATIONALE: Cases of coronary artery fistula having a connection with the cardiac cavity are rare. Here, we report a case in which 2 coronary arteries empty into the left ventricular cavity together. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 63-year-old woman who was diagnosed as having hypertension 20 years prior presented with dyspnea. DIAGNOSES: The coronary angiography revealed coronary artery fistula. INTERVENTIONS: Chest X-ray showed pulmonary edema...

Congenital coronary-pulmonary artery fistulas complicated by continuity to a systemic artery and aneurysm are extremely rare. A 78-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with a complaint of chest discomfort. Coronary angiography showed a coronary aneurysm and coronary-pulmonary artery fistula arising from the left circumflex artery and entering into the right lower pulmonary artery. Computed tomography angiography revealed a left subclavian artery-pulmonary artery fistula communicating with the coronary-pulmonary artery fistula...

Coronary complications in patients with transposition of the great arteries (TGA) after an arterial switch operation (ASO) are relatively rare, but of all the possible postoperative adverse events, they are potentially the most dangerous. The fate of the coronary arteries, which are transplanted during the neonatal ASO, remains uncertain. There is also no consensus regarding their postoperative evaluation, especially in asymptomatic patients. The aim of this study was to present the early results of routinely performed coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) in asymptomatic adolescents and young adults with TGA after an ASO...

Brian A Scansen
Coronary artery anomalies represent a disease spectrum from incidental to life-threatening. Anomalies of coronary artery origin and course are well-recognized in human medicine, but have received limited attention in veterinary medicine. Coronary artery anomalies are best described in the dog, hamster, and cow though reports also exist in the horse and pig. The most well-known anomaly in veterinary medicine is anomalous coronary artery origin with a prepulmonary course in dogs, which limits treatment of pulmonary valve stenosis...

the use of amplatzer occluder family in daily clinical practice has already overcome on-label indications, with growing clinical experience and the technological evolution of devices. Areas covered: We present the case of a patient with a very rare complication following proximal aortic surgery treated using a unique strategy. A huge pseudoaneurysm around an ascending aortic prosthesis ruptured into the right pulmonary artery. A hybrid treatment strategy consisting of percutaneous closure of the fistula followed by cardiosurgery was chosen due to the patient's poor haemodynamic condition...

The formation of a fistula between the internal mammary artery and the pulmonary vasculature (IMA-to-PV) is a rare anomaly. The etiology can be congenital; however, most recent cases have been associated with coronary artery bypass grafting, trauma, inflammatory conditions, chronic infections, or neoplasia. The knowledge base on the formation of these fistulas is derived primarily from case reports. To our knowledge, no systematic reviews or guidelines are available that provide information on how to manage these cases, and the treatment of an IMA-to-PV fistula is controversial...

Variation in the origin of the internal thoracic arteries has been previously described and reported in the literature; however, there has been no report of an anomalous termination of the right internal thoracic artery into the pulmonary vein persisting and presenting in adult life. We report the case of the right internal thoracic artery originating from the first part of subclavian artery but terminating into the right superior pulmonary vein that presented during the third decade of life.

Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation, which is defined as the presence of an ab-normal connection between the pulmonary artery and pulmonary vein, is rarely seen. Although it generally presents as a congenital condition, it may be accompanied by hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia. Clinical signs vary according to the amount of shunt in proportion to the number and size of the fistulae. Patients may present with cyanosis and respiratory trouble. If the disease remains untreated, it may result in cardiac failure and ineffective endocarditis, thereby leading to the rupture of the an-eurysmal fistula...
