Objective: To determine the prevalence of aortic aneurysm (AA) in tomographic studies in the population at risk. Methods: An observational, cross-sectional study that consisted in systematically reviewing computed tomographies (CT) of the chest and abdomen was carried out at our institution. These studies were performed for different clinical indications, we selected studies of patients older than 55 years from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2016. Descriptive statistics was completed in the studied population and linear regression model was performed to determine the relationship of AA findings and the patient's age...

Giant splenic artery aneurysm is a rare condition that represents an eminent life threatening for the patient, requiring, therefore, urgent surgical correction. A 61-year-old woman, former smoker, hypertensive, hypercholesterolemic and multipara sought our service because of a large tumor in the mesogastrium, which was an abdominal ultrasound finding. Despite the size of the tumor, the patient was asymptomatic. The angiotomography and the magnetic resonance image of the abdomen were suggestive of giant splenic artery aneurysm with more than 10cm in diameter that was confirmed by an angiography...

Objective: to evaluate the endovascular treatment of vascular lesions of the cavernous segment of the internal carotidartery (ICA) performed at our institution. Methods: we conducted a descriptive, retrospective and prospective study of patients with aneurysms of the cavernous portion of the ICA or with direct carotid-cavernous fistulas (dCCF) undergoing endovascular treatment. Results: we included 26 patients with intracavernous aneurysms and ten with dCCF...

We report a case of a ruptured aneurysm of the celiac trunk in a 32-year-old, male patient with Behçet Disease (BD). Aneurysm resection was performed and the patient is well during a follow up of 32 months. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a ruptured celiac trunk aneurysm successfully treated in a patient with BD. RESUMO Relatamos o caso de um aneurisma roto do tronco celíaco em um paciente de 32 anos, do sexo masculino, portador de Doença de Behçet (DB). A ressecção do aneurisma foi realizada e o paciente está bem, com acompanhamento de 32 meses...

We report a case of an aneurysm of the right hepatic artery and its multidisciplinary management by general surgery, endoscopy and radiology services. Being a case of extremely low incidence, it is important to show its diagnostic and therapeutic approach. RESUMO Relatamos um caso de aneurisma da artéria hepática direita conduzido de forma multidisciplinar pelos Serviços de Cirurgia Geral, Endoscopia e Radiologia. Em se tratando de caso de incidência baixíssima, é importante mostrar o enfoque diagnóstico e terapêutico usado em seu manejo...

Splenic artery aneurysms - the most common visceral artery aneurysms - are found most often in multiparous women and in patients with portal hypertension. Indications for treatment of splenic artery aneurysm or pseudoaneurysm include specific symptoms, female gender and childbearing age, presence of portal hypertension, planned liver transplantation, a pseudoaneurysm of any size, and an aneurysm with a diameter of more than 2.5cm. Historically, the treatment of splenic artery aneurysm has been surgical ligation of the splenic artery, ligation of the aneurysm, or aneurysmectomy with or without splenectomy, depending on the aneurysm location...

OBJECTIVE: to determine the blood flow pattern changes after endovascular treatment of saccular abdominal aortic aneurysm with triple stent. METHODS: we conducted a hemodynamic study of seven Landrace and Large White pigs with saccular aneurysms of the infrarenal abdominal aorta artificially produced according to the technique described. The animals were subjected to triple stenting for endovascular aneurysm. We evaluated the pattern of blood flow by duplex scan before and after stent implantation...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the readability, accessibility, usability, and reliability of information available on the Internet in the Spanish language about aortic aneurysm and its endovascular treatment, and to determine whether this information source provides comprehensible material that will enable patients to participate in decisions regarding their condition. METHODS: In November 2010, information from the Internet was compiled by entering the terms "aneurisma aorta" (aortic aneurysm) and "endoprótesis aorta" (aortic endoprosthesis) in the most widely used search engines: Google, Yahoo, and MSN/Bing...

Nematobothrinae are trematoda digenea that usually live in cysts in fish tissues. They have been reported in different teleost species although the host-parasite relationships remain to be elucidated. This report is aimed at analysing the presence of Unitubulotestis sardae in the Atlantic bonito (Sarda sarda) populations fished in the Straits of Messina. The histopathological change reported in literature in similar cases is an aneurisma verminosa saccata, whereas, in the specimens here described, we show neovascularisation and at the same time, hyperplasia of the gill epithelium, leading to the formation of a bistratified cystic wall...

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome derives from some defect collagen synthesis or structure. It collects several disorders, clinically and genetically different. The young woman history with silent disease until lethal spontaneous arterial rupture is presented. Post-mortem examination shows type IV syndrome aspects: arterial fragility and right vertebral aneurisma rupture into pleural cavity with consequent fatal emothorax. Moreover there are mitral valve myxomatous degeneration, ascending aorta dilatation, lungs emphysema and meningioma...

The basic hemodynamic indices: cardiac volume, volume of circulating plasma and blood, total peripheral vascular resistance and velolity of blood flow were studied in 60 patients with myocardial infarction, subacute stage in progress, prior to and post veloergometric loading. A decreased tolerance to physical loading was established: cardiac index--insignificantly increased, beat volume-decreased, volume of circulating plasma and blood--tendency to increase. The results show a dependence on the clinical development of the disease--the signs of a latent insufficiency being manifested in the cases with extensive localization of the infarction, transmural affection and with a formed aneurisma after a dosed loading...

The present study is an analysis of complications developing after a total of 200 splenectomies carried out for various indications: primary hypersplenism (83), secondary hypersplenism following portal hypertension (72), diseases of the hemopoietic system (24), parasitic and infectious splenomegalies (13), rupture of the spleen or of splenic artery aneurisma (8). A number of 68 patients (34%) had a total of 73 complications following surgery. Of these 60 have recovered (30%) while 8 (representing 4% of the total), died...
