OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: Several plaque and lesion characteristics have been associated with an increased risk for procedural stroke during or shortly after carotid artery stenting (CAS). While technical advancements in stent design and cerebral protection devices (CPD) may help reduce the procedural stroke risk, and anatomy remains important, tailoring stenting procedures according to plaque and lesion characteristics might be a useful strategy in reducing stroke associated with CAS. In this descriptive report of the ongoing Asymptomatic Carotid Surgery Trial-2 (ACST-2), it was assessed whether choice for stent and use or type of CPD was influenced by plaque and lesion characteristics...

BACKGROUND: Ureteral injuries during colorectal surgery are a rare event, ranging in the literature from 0.28-7.6%. Debate surrounds the use of prophylactic lighted ureteral stents to help protect the ureter during laparoscopic surgery. It has been suggested that they help to identify injuries but do not prevent them. The authors look to challenge this. METHODS: Over 66 months, every laparoscopic or colectomy involving ureteral stents was recorded. Researchers documented any injury to the ureter intraoperatively...

Endovascular treatment of deeply located bilobulated aneurysms in elderly patients is still challenging because of the acute angulation of the carotid siphon and poor microcatheter support. In particular, generating a frame coil to cover each lobe is difficult in bilobulated aneurysms with narrow isthmus in the fused portion. Here, we report a successfully treated bilobulated aneurysm using a modified coil protection technique with stent assistance.

Prophylactic ureteric stenting in renal transplantation reduces major urological complications (MUCs). There is however morbidity related to the indwelling duration of a stent, we aimed to determine the optimal duration for stents in this clinical setting. Patients (aged 2-75 years) from 6 UK hospitals undergoing renal transplantation were recruited and randomly assigned, to either early stent removal at 5 days (without cystoscopy) or late at 6 weeks post-transplantation (with cystoscopy). The primary outcome was a composite of stent-related complications defined as pain, visible haematuria, migration, fragmentation, and urinary tract infections (UTIs) within 3 months of transplantation...

Although it has been reported that endoscopic double stenting using a self-expandable metallic stent (SEMS) for gastroduodenal and biliary obstruction is useful [1-2], the efficacy and safety of performing double stenting using balloon enteroscopy is uncertain in patients with surgically altered anatomy. We describe a patient who had undergone gastrectomy and then underwent endoscopic double stenting for gastrojejunostomy anastomotic and biliary obstruction. A man in his 50s with a history of having undergone distal gastrectomy with Roux-en-Y reconstruction because of gastric cancer developed gastrojejunostomy anastomotic obstruction due to local anastomotic recurrence and peritoneal dissemination (Fig...
