Endocarditis of a prosthetic heart valve is a life-threatening condition that is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Perivalvular extension in infective endocarditis includes complications such as periannular or intramyocardial abscesses, pseudoaneurysms and fistulae. The incidence of perivalvular extension ranges from 10 to 30% in native valve endocarditis and 30 to 55% in prosthetic aortic-valve endocarditis. Herein, we describe a case of a 66-year-old man who presented endocarditis of a prosthetic aortic valve complicated by infective pseudoaneurysm with localization next to the right coronary sinus of Valsalva...

Coronary arterial abnormalities are uncommon findings in children that have profound clinical implications. Although anomalies of the coronary origins are well described, there are many other disease processes that affect the coronary arteries. Immune system-mediated diseases (eg, Kawasaki disease, polyarteritis nodosa, and other vasculiditides) can result in coronary arterial aneurysms, strictures, and abnormal tapering of the vessels. Because findings at imaging are an important component of diagnosis in these diseases, the radiologist's understanding of them is essential...

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...

OBJECTIVE: Basilic vein transposition (BVT) fistulas may be performed as either a one-stage or two-stage operation, although there is debate as to which technique is superior. This study was designed to evaluate the comparative clinical efficacy and cost-effectiveness of one-stage vs two-stage BVT. METHODS: We identified all patients at a single large academic hospital who had undergone creation of either a one-stage or two-stage BVT between January 2007 and January 2015...

OBJECTIVES: To compare the efficacy and safety of manual compression (MC) with vascular hemostasis devices (VHD) in patients undergoing coronary angiography (CA) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) through femoral artery access. INTRODUCTION: The use of femoral artery access for coronary procedures may result in access-related complications, prolonged immobility and discomfort for the patients. MC results in longer time-to-hemostasis (TTH) and time-to-ambulation (TTA) compared to VHDs but its role in access-related complications remains unclear in patients undergoing coronary procedures...

In cases of pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect (PA-VSD), coronary-pulmonary arterial fistula (CPAF) as the main source of pulmonary blood supply is extremely rare. These fistulae may arise from the left coronary artery, right coronary artery, or a single coronary artery. Fistulae from a single coronary artery are unusual. We are reporting a case of PA-VSD with single coronary artery and CPAF as the main source of pulmonary supply in addition to two major aortopulmonary collateral arteries (MAPCAS)...

Endocarditis of congenital coronary fistulas in the cardiac chambers is rare, especially in the paediatric age group. We describe the case of a 9-year-old boy with a fistula from the dilated right coronary artery to the junction of the superior caval vein to the right atrium, complicated by endocarditis. Treatment consisted of 6 weeks of antibiotics and interventional closure of the fistula 3 months later with an Amplatzer vascular plug.

INTRODUCTION: Systemic embolisation of stents represents a rare complication of coronary interventions. REPORT: The case of a patient with peripheral embolisation of a coronary stent while undergoing a coronary procedure for an ischaemic event is reported. The stent lodged at a previously created iatrogenic fistula joining the profunda femoral artery and the common femoral vein. An endovascular attempt was ineffective in treating this complication. The stent was removed surgically and the fistula repaired...

BACKGROUND: Radial access (RA) and vascular closure devices (VCD) have been shown to be superior to transfemoral access (TFA) with regard to the prevention of vascular complications after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). OBJECTIVE: The present study evaluates whether RA is associated with less vascular complications and a lower mortality than VCD. METHODS: A total of 6999 consecutive PCI patients were studied through a single-centre prospective registry from January 2011 to August 2015...

Postoperative residual shunting is a significant concern in patients with coronary arteriovenous fistulas, especially in fistulas originating from the proximal left coronary artery, because of the limited surgical field. We report a case of fistulas originating from the proximal coronary artery in a 63-year-old woman in whom the ascending aorta and pulmonary artery were transected to obtain good surgical exposure. After complete transection of both great arteries, fistulas arising from the left main trunk were ligated externally, and their intracardiac openings were closed internally...

The radiocephalic arteriovenous fistula (AVF) provides optimal vascular access for hemodialysis; it has a higher long-term patency rate and fewer complications than other vascular access methods. However, the AVF has a high primary failure rate. The presence of small-diameter vessels at anastomosis sites is an important risk factor for AVF failure. However, in a recent study, despite selecting an adequate artery and vein for creating an AVF by routine preoperative vascular mapping, AVF maturation and primary failure occurred...

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a heterogeneous group of inherited disorders that occur owing to the abnormalities in type 1 collagen, and is characterized by increased bone fragility and other extraskeletal manifestations. OI may be associated with vascular complications such as aortic and cervical artery dissection, carotid cavernous fistula, and coronary artery aneurysms but unlike other connective tissue diseases, the cerebrovascular system is less frequently involved. We report rare case of 50 year female patient who was diagnosed with OI following right frontal haemorrhage secondary to a ruptured middle cerebral artery mirror aneurysm...

Maintaining vascular access patency represents a tremendous challenge in hemodialysis patients. Although "native" arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is currently recommended as primary vascular access, neointimal hyperplasia stenoses frequently develop, with a risk for AVF thrombosis and vascular access loss. For years, first-line treatment of AVFs stenoses has been percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, generally with high-pressure or cutting uncoated balloons. However, restenosis and reintervention rates remain incredibly high and occur, according to recent studies, in up to 60% and 70% of patients at 6 and 12 months, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter closure of congenital coronary artery fistulas (CCAFs) is an alternative therapy to surgery; however, data regarding transcatheter closure for CCAF with a giant coronary artery aneurysm (CAA) in pediatric patients are still limited due to the rarity of the disease. We aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of transcatheter closure for CCAF with a giant CAA in a pediatric population at a single center. METHODS: Medical records of pediatric patients (<18 years old) who underwent transcatheter closure of CCAF with a giant CAA between April 2007 and September 2016 at Guangdong Cardiovascular Institute (Guangdong, China) were reviewed...

Fetuses with pulmonary atresia or pulmonary stenosis with intact ventricular septum manifest variable degrees of right ventricle hypoplasia and inadequacy. We studied the relationship between prenatal echocardiographic parameters and their progression through gestation as potential predictors of postnatal single-ventricle or two-ventricle care strategy. Serial fetal echocardiograms of pulmonary atresia (n = 28) or severe pulmonary stenosis (n = 8) and intact ventricular septum were reviewed. Measurements included tricuspid valve and mitral valve diameter and Z scores, degree of tricuspid regurgitation, presence of subaortic stenosis, presence of coronary artery fistulae, and Doppler pulsatility indices in middle cerebral and umbilical artery...

INTRODUCTION: Cholecystoduodenal fistulas represent the most common type of bilioenteric fistulas while choledochoduodenal fistulas account for only 1-25% of cases. Bilioenteric fistula cases are associated with cholelithiasis and are rarely associated with duodenal peptic ulcers. Here we present the first case of Bouveret syndrome secondary to choledochoduodenal fistula complicating peptic duodenal ulcer managed successfully via endoscopic mechanical lithotripsy. CASE: 86-year-old male with a medical history significant for coronary artery disease and stage 3 colorectal cancer status after resection and chemoradiation presented with intractable sharp abdominal pain worse postprandially for one week in duration, associated with early satiety, anorexia, and 5 lbs weight loss in one week...
