A 73-year-old man, who had undergone coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) 10 days prior, presented with a great saphenous vein graft aneurysm (SVGA). CT revealed the increasing size of the aneurysm. Since the SVGA occurred immediately after CABG and there were no other complications, the aneurysm was treated percutaneously. While intravascular ultrasonography (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography failed to detect the entry point, an IVUS catheter with the addition of ChromaFlo imaging clearly revealed the entry point, size and length of the SVGA...

Purpose To elaborate on a planar anatomic variant of great saphenous vein as a potential therapeutic pitfall in the treatment of venous reflux. Materials and methods Lower extremity veins in 568 limbs with great saphenous vein insufficiency were sonographically mapped. A rather overlooked variation, the saphenous bow, was studied with emphasis on anatomic clarification and its involvement in venous insufficiency. Results This variation, observed in 5.1% (n = 29) of limbs, comprised two segments; one uninterrupted great saphenous vein proper coursing throughout saphenous compartment and one extra-compartmental segment originating distally from and proximally fusing with it...

Interventional treatment of venous insufficiency has been revolutionized by endovascular techniques. Some of these techniques, and particularly thermal ablation (endovenous laser, radiofrequency) are now recommended as first-line therapy in the latest international guidelines. This is because of less post-operative pain, a shorter leave from employment and similar or lower recurrence rate. Endovenous techniques allow safer and more efficient treatment of certain particular conditions : small saphenous vein, ulcers, and recurrent varicose veins...

Accelerated atherosclerosis diminishes the long term patency of vascular interventions, such as percutaneous coronary intervention and implantation of saphenous vein grafts. However, the cause of this accelerated atherosclerosis is unclear. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that intimal hyperplasia formed following vascular intervention promotes retention of atherogenic lipoproteins. Intimal hyperplasia was surgically induced in the mouse common carotid artery. The surgery was combined with different mouse models of hypercholesterolemia to obtain different cholesterol levels and to control the onsets of hypercholesterolemia...

BACKGROUND: Large soft tissue defects of ankle and foot always have been challenging to reconstruct. Reverse sural flaps, free flaps have been used for this problem with variable success. Reverse peroneal artery flap is an option to use with reliability without microvascular repair. Connections of peroneal artery around talus and ankle joint are deep and reliable with anterior tibial and posterior tibial artery. Arterial inflow and venous drainage improved with including short saphenous vein and reverse sural artery in the flap...

Chronic exertional compartment syndrome is a rare cause of lower leg pain incurred during sports activities and typically affects young athletes who need to return to their activity level as quickly as possible. Nonoperative treatments are often unsuccessful and fasciotomy of the involved compartment is the treatment of choice. Endoscopically assisted release of the anterior and deep compartments is proven to be safe and effective. Endoscopically assisted deep posterior compartment release via an incision 1 to 3 cm behind the medial tibial border has high risk of injury to the great saphenous and perforating veins and the saphenous nerve...

Currently, there are no explicit guidelines on the management of acute myocardial infarction (MI) in young adults under the age of 30. The lack of published literature to guide clinicians in the care of young adults with MI has prompted us to report a case exemplary for the successful treatment with coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). A 25-year-old man developed acute MI and underwent on-pump five quintuple CABG using bilateral internal mammary arteries and left greater saphenous vein. This appropriate and timely intervention may have helped to prevent cardiac death and maintain the quality of life...

An arteriovenous fistula in a limb involves an abnormal connection between a limb artery and vein. It can be due to trauma or iatrogenic injury. Traumatic arteriovenous fistulas can be caused by penetrating or gunshot injuries to the limb, while iatrogenic causes include catheter intervention to the groins or open surgery of the inguinal space. By contrast, the occurrence of multiple spontaneous arteriovenous fistulas is rare. We report a case of endovascular therapy for multiple spontaneous arteriovenous fistulas between the iliac artery and the vein, common femoral artery and the vein, superficial artery and the saphenous vein, and deep femoral artery and the vein...

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) is a recognised cause of lower limb peripheral arterial disease in young adults. We describe the cases of two otherwise healthy brothers who presented with the condition 5 years apart. The first brother, who is also the first author of this case report, presented aged 19 with worsening, right-sided, exercise-induced lower leg pain and transient foot pallor. Imaging confirmed PAES and irreversible localised arterial damage. Surgery was performed to release the entrapment and resect the section of diseased artery...

Coronary artery disease represents a major health problem worldwide for which coronary artery bypass surgery remains a standard of care. Among the several grafts that are available, the internal thoracic artery (ITA) has long been considered the best as several advantages have been described compared with other vessels (e.g. saphenous vein or radial artery), namely, an absent to minor atherosclerotic development. In fact, several studies showed the presence of preatherosclerotic lesions, such as intimal and/or medial thickening, medial fibrosis, among others, in the presence of certain cardiovascular risk factors as well as established atherosclerotic lesions (i...

BACKGROUND: Factor XI (FXI) is a key component of the intrinsic pathway of coagulation. It can be activated by either FXIIa or thrombin and amplifies thrombin generation during clot formation. Congenital FXI deficiency in humans (known as hemophilia C) is associated with bleeding after hemostatic challenge. However, to date there are no reports of excess bleeding in FXI deficient mice. OBJECTIVES: To determine if the absence of FXI in mice prolongs bleeding in different models...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The side effects of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors (COXIBs) on the cardiovascular system could be associated with a reduced prostaglandin (PG) I2 synthesis. Microsomal prostaglandin E synthase-1 (mPGES-1) catalyzes the formation of PGE2 from COX-derived PGH2 . This enzyme is induced under inflammatory conditions and constitutes an attractive target for novel anti-inflammatory drugs. However, it is not known whether mPGES-1 inhibitors could be devoid of cardiovascular side effects...

OBJECTIVES: Although the use of the right internal thoracic artery (RITA) as second arterial conduit to graft the left coronary system consistently has been shown to provide a survival benefit compared with the saphenous vein graft (SVG), the choice of conduit for the right coronary artery (RCA) system remains controversial. We compared long-term (>15 years) survival in patients who underwent RITA-RCA versus SVG-RCA grafting at a single institution. METHODS: The study population consisted of 7223 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery...
