Introduction Abnormal links between the arterial system and other luminal systems are a challenge to those in charge of their adequate diagnostic and therapeutic management. Objective Scientific case report on an individual who underwent successful treatment combining vascular-surgical and interventional radiology techniques for a rare right uretero-iliac artery fistula based on personal clinical experience, a selective literature research and a detailed discussion of current recommendations for diagnostic workup and subsequent treatment...

: Paravalvular leak (PVL) is an uncommon but serious complication associated with the implantation of prosthetic valves. Following aortic valve replacement, up to 5% of patients affected by PVL develop clinical symptoms of heart failure, hemolysis or both. Percutaneous treatment of PVL has emerged instead of conventional surgery, as a well tolerated and less invasive procedure but remains a challenge. We present the case of a young woman with mechanical aortic and mitral prostheses, who presented surgical aortic PVL caused by a serious frailty of native annulus, became symptomatic after 5 months and was successfully percutaneously treated with an Amplatzer Duct Occluder device...

Left atrial appendage (LAA) closure prevents thromboembolic risk and avoids lifelong anticoagulation due to atrial fibrillation (AF). Nowadays, AtriClip, a modern epicardial device approved in June 2010, allows external and safe closure of LAA in patients undergoing cardiac surgery during other open-chest cardiac surgical procedures. Such a surgical approach and its epicardial deployment differentiates LAA closure with AtriClip from percutaneous closure techniques such as Watchman (Boston Scientific, Marlborough, MA, USA), Lariat (SentreHEART Inc...

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.

BACKGROUND: The Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) has revolutionised our treatment of advanced stage heart failure, giving debilitated patients a new lease on life. A small proportion of these LVAD patients can be bridged-to-recovery. The identification of these patients and decision to wean, however, can be challenging. METHODS: The need to fully explant the device upon recovery has evolved to a minimalist approach aiming to avoid injury to the 'recovered' heart...

A tunnel between the aorta and right atrium in a newborn was occluded with 5×6 Amplatzer Duct Occluder II-Additional Size. Our case is different because of enlarged right atrium and atypical location of tunnel orifice.

PURPOSE: To report a transnasal snare technique for retrograde primary jejunostomy placement after surgical gastrojejunostomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two patients underwent the transnasal snare technique for retrograde primary jejunostomy placement. Patients included two females, age 58 and 62. In both patients, a gooseneck snare was inserted in a transnasal fashion. After insertion of the snare into the jejunum, the location was confirmed with ultrasound. The snare was then targeted using a Chiba needle through which a 0...

OBJECTIVES: Vascular occlusion of hemodialysis arteriovenous access (AVA) using an Amplatzer vascular plug (AVP; St. Jude Medical, St. Paul, MN, USA) is an arising and alternative practice in selected patients; however, few reported cases can be found in the literature. Herein, we report on our experience with endovascular treatment of complicated AVA. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From September 2015 to December 2016, 3 patients at our clinic underwent an occlusion of hemodialysis AVA with 2 different Amplatzer vascular plugs: 2 patients with type II and 1 patient with type IV...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) from the left atrium (LA) with transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) for procedural guidance of transcatheter left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO). BACKGROUND: TEE with general anesthesia is the current gold standard to guide LAAO. By the use of ICE from the LA, LAAO can be performed in local anesthesia and may potentially have advantages over TEE. METHODS: A single-center, cohort study of patients undergoing LAAO with the Amplatzer Cardiac Plug or Amulet (St...

INTRODUCTION: The use of oral anticoagulants in patients with a history of atrial fibrillation (AF) and intracranial haemorrhage (ICH) is controversial on account of the risk of haemorrhagic stroke recurrence. This study presents our experience regarding the safety and efficacy of percutaneous left atrial appendage closure (LAAC), an alternative to anticoagulation in these patients. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective, single-centre, observational study. LAAC was performed in patients with a history of ICH and non-valvular AF...

OBJECTIVE: This registry aimed to describe the safety and feasibility of a single trans-septal (TS) access technique for left intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) guidance of left-atrial appendage (LAA) closure procedure. BACKGROUND: LAA closure is currently accepted as an alternative to oral anticoagulation (OAC) in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) who are at high-risk for bleeding. Currently, LAA closure procedure is typically performed under trans-esophageal echocardiogram (TEE) guidance...

Inadvertent anastomosis of the left internal mammary artery (LIMA) or a saphenous vein graft (SVG) to the great cardiac vein (GCV) is a rare complication of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). We present two cases with a LIMA to GCV and a SVG to GCV anastomosis, respectively, resulting in angina and dyspnea in the postoperative state. As an alternative to repeat CABG, both patients underwent percutaneous coronary intervention with percutaneous coil embolization or implantation of an Amplatzer vascular plug within the bypass graft to GCV conduit...

We report the case of a 76-year-old male patient with a history of coronary artery bypass graft surgery presented with a large pseudoaneurysm emerging from a previously occluded saphenous bypass graft (SVG). A largely contained hematoma is seen in the mediastinum on computed tomography angiography (CTA) of the chest. Flow was seen from the ascending aorta into the pseudoaneurysm through the aorto-ostial opening of the bypass graft. Closure of the aorto-ostial origin of the graft was performed using the AMPLATZER muscular ventricular septal defect (VSD) occluder (St Jude's Medical, St...

BACKGROUND: Prospective data on the medium-term safety and effectiveness of the AMPLATZER Septal Occluder in clinical practice are not available. The objective of this study was to prospectively evaluate the risk of hemodynamic compromise and obtain medium-term survival data on patients implanted with the AMPLATZER Septal Occluder for percutaneous closure of secundum atrial septal defects. METHODS AND RESULTS: Subjects were enrolled prospectively at 50 US sites and followed for 2 years...
