There is an increase in the number of older persons worldwide. Because of this in the future we will much more manage the diseases which are more commonly seen in elderly in daily practice. One of the mortal diseases commonly seen in elderly patients is aortic aneurysm. Aort aneurysms are vary rare in patients under 50 age. When a patient over 65 age is examined, aortic aneurysm should take place in differential diagnosis list. aneurysm may be seen at both thoracic and abdominal aorta, but abdominal aorta is a more common site...

The surgical treatment of diffuse thoracic aortic pathologies remains a challenge in aortic surgery for surgeons. Traditionally, these aortic diseases are treated with a 2-step approach known as the "elephant trunk procedure." This technique gives us an opportunity for the construction of the distal anastomosis during the initial operation. However, this staged approach is associated with a substantial overall mortality and morbidity. In order to improve the outcomes, few single-stage repair methods have been tried...

Multiple myeloma (MM) is a clonal B-cell malignancy characterized by an accumulation of clonal plasma cells (PC) in the bone marrow (BM) leading to bone destruction and BM failure. Despite recent advances in pharmacological therapy, MM remains a largely incurable pathology. Therefore, novel effective and less toxic agents are urgently necessary. In the last few years, pomegranate has been studied for its potential therapeutic properties including treatment and prevention of cancer. Pomegranate juice (PGJ) contains a number of potential active compounds including organic acids, vitamins, sugars, and phenolic components that are all responsible of the pro-apoptotic effects observed in tumor cell line...

PURPOSE: To investigate if the routine use of an aortic balloon within 15-30 min after Ovation stent graft ring inflation would resolve any inflow stenosis, which may reach 60 %, at the level of the sealing rings. Moreover, we estimated the potential hemodynamic compromise in these patients during rest and exercise. METHODS: Following 3-dimensional reconstruction of AAA models, cross-sectional area of the infrarenal aorta just proximal the sealing mechanism (A aort, R aort, respectively) and internal area at the site of stenosis (A int, R int, respectively) were measured for 83...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation is preferred to treat high surgical risk patients with severe aort stenosis. Wrapping of a pig tail catheter with device struts during transcatheter aortic valve implantation is a very rare complication. In this report, we present the images and videos of an attempt of retrieval of an aortic valve wrapped with pig tail catheter during transcatheter aortic valve implantation in a 71-year-old man.

Endothelin-1 (ET-1) produced by vascular endothelial cells plays essential roles in the regulation of vascular tone and development of cardiovascular diseases. The objective of this study is to identify novel regulators implicated in the regulation of ET-1 expression in vascular endothelial cells (ECs). By using quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), we show that either ectopic expression of orphan nuclear receptor Nur77 or pharmacological activation of Nur77 by 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) substantially inhibits ET-1 expression in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs), under both basal and thrombin-stimulated conditions...

Intestinal brids are most common cause of postoperative ileus although there are various cause of ileus after abdominal operation. On the other hand internal herniation is a rare cause of ileus after abdominal operations. Diagnosis of this hernias are important because of strangulation and necrosis of its content due to circulatory disturbance. In this case report, we publish a patient with ileus due to a greft which has been used in a previous abdominal surgery for abdominal aort aneurysm.

We reported a 21-year-old patient with strict descending aorta coarctation and small post-ductal patent ductus arteriosus, complicated with abortion and hypertension. The patient was successfully treated by endovascular stent-graft with a single cardiac catheterization. Endovascular stent-graft is an easy, safe, and reliable intervention for the treatment of strict descending aorta coarctation and small post-ductal patent ductus arteriosus.

We report a case of compartment syndrome caused by femoral arterial cannulation during cardiopulmonary bypass. A 62-year-old man who had been diagnosed as acute aortic dissection (type I) received a operation of partial arch replacement with reconstruction of brachiocephalic and left carotid arteries. Compartment syndrome was noticed just after the operation, which was caused by long-term ischemia during femoral arterial cannulation combined with poor collateral circulation by the dissection of iliac arteries...

Seven to twenty cm long bypass grafts were inserted between the upper and lower part of the descending aorts of 20 young pids with end-to-side technique. The aorta between the anastomoses was closed by a ligature. As graft materials were used circular polyglactin 910 (Vicryl) mesh tubes (group I), external PTFE graft (Impra) and internal polyglactin mesh tube (group II), PTFE graft (group III) and external dacron mesh tube and internal polyglactin mesh tube (group IV). The biological process taking place in the grafted area was studied by light microscopy...

Hemodynamic data of 8 patients undergoing planned resection of abdominal aortic aneurysm are statistically analyzed by variance analysis ("patient" factor and "time" factor). The results are: 1. "Patient" factor exists for all the variables studied. 2. "Time" factor is present for some of them. After aortic clamping, there is a significant decrease of the systolic index (p less than 0.05) and of the left ventricular systolic work index (p less than 0.01). After aorting declamping, a high significant increase of the mean right auricular pressure (p less than 0...
