BACKGROUND: The effect of the insertion of guidewires and catheters on fusion accuracy of the three-dimensional (3D) image fusion technique during iliac percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) procedures has not yet been investigated. METHODS: Technical validation of the 3D fusion technique was evaluated in 11 patients with common and/or external iliac artery lesions. A preprocedural contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiogram (CE-MRA) was segmented and manually registered to a cone-beam computed tomography image created at the beginning of the procedure for each patient...

Despite the progress in endovascular treatment of patients with peripheral arterial disease, restenosis remains the major drawback, especially in patients with femoropopliteal lesions. To reduce neointimal proliferation and subsequent restenosis the use of antiproliferative drug eluting devices was implemented in the endovascular treatment of femoropopliteal disease. Aiming to use the favorable effects of these antiproliferative agents and to reduce foreign body exposure in affected arteries, drug coated balloons (DCB) have been developed...

BACKGROUND: During the past decade, endovascular treatment has become the treatment of choice for all types of aortoiliac occlusive disease, including TASC C and D lesions. Patency rates, however, are still below those of open surgical techniques. One propagated technique to improve patency rates is the use of covered stents. This review assessed the available literature on covered stents for aortoiliac occlusive disease. METHODS: An extensive search was performed of the MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane databases...

Cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) play a significant role in the modern management of cardiovascular disease. CIEDs include implantable pacemakers (PMs), implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices. These devices improve the quality of life of their recipients and help reduce the incidence of sudden cardiac death. Traditionally, CIEDs have been reliant on the use of transvenous endocardial leads to directly connect with the heart. Over time, these endovascular leads may become endothelialized rendering removal extremely difficult...

BACKGROUND: The long-term efficacy of endovascular treatment (EVT) for cavernous sinus dural arteriovenous fistulae (CS-dAVF) was assessed with a special focus on residual shunts after initial EVT. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This retrospective survey included 50 patients who had undergone EVT and were followed for 1 month or longer (median follow-up 56 months). RESULTS: Common preoperative symptoms were chemosis (78%), extra-ocular motor palsy (72%), exophthalmos (66%), and tinnitus (26%)...

The kidney is the third most common abdominal organ to be injured in trauma, following the spleen and liver, respectively. The most commonly used classification scheme is the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) classification of blunt renal injuries, which grades renal injury according to the size of laceration and its proximity to the renal hilum. Arteriovenous fistula and pseudoaneurysm are the most common iatrogenic biopsy-related or surgery-related vascular injuries in native kidneys. The approach to renal artery injuries has changed over time from more aggressive intervention to more conservative observational or endovascular management, including selective transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) and the placement of stents/stent grafts...

This report describes a rare case of benign superior vena cava syndrome (SVCS) accompanying recalcitrant pleural effusion developed secondary to extrinsic compression by anthracotic calcified mediastinal lymphadenopathy which was corrected by surgical bypass graft. An 81-year-old female presented with recalcitrant pleural effusion for several months despite of medical treatments. SVCS developed progressively without any other radiological evidence of malignancy or active infection on initial chest computed tomography (CT)...

BACKGROUND: Spinal cord injury (SCI) is reported to occur in 3-12% of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) cases, but is a potentially preventable complication of TEVAR for thoracoabdominal pathologies. Although many strategies have been devised to reduce the incidence of SCI, the effectiveness of prophylactic cerebrospinal fluid drainage (CSFD) and left subclavian artery (LSA) revascularization remains controversial. METHODS: From 2012 to 2014, 162 patients underwent TEVAR at a single institution...

AIM: To report feasibility and safety of endovascular interventions on iliac and common femoral arteries, using the transradial access (TRA). METHODS: 100 consecutive patients (19 women; mean age 71, range 37-90years) with critical limb ischemia (30%) or claudication, and TASC A-D lesions in iliac or common femoral arteries, were prospectively enrolled, from January 2013 to June 2015, to be treated via the TRA. Exclusion criteria included no palpable radial arteries (RA) and the presence of a fistula for hemodialysis...

Objectives Duodenal perforation by an inferior vena cava filter is rare and life threatening. Our objective is to find out number of occurrences and compare diagnosis and treatments. Method The reference list of Malgor's review in 2012 was considered as well as all new articles with eligible features. Search was conducted on specific databases: MEDLINE, Web of Sciences, and Literatura Latino-Americana e do Caribe em Ciências da Saúde. Results Most of the patients presented with upper abdominal pain and the use of radiologic studies was crucial for diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Angioscopy - or endovascular endoscopy - is a catheter-based technique employing a flexible fiberoptic angioscope to directly visualize arterial lumen. Poor resolution and excessive stiffness of pre-existent angioscopes limited their use clinically. Recent advances resulted in novel fused optical fiber bundle angioscopes with improved flexibility and imaging resolution. Use of these devices in endovascular neurosurgery is still largely unexplored. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate image quality and feasibility of optical angioscopes for diagnostic and interventional neuro-angioscopy in carotid arteries of human cadavers...

BACKGROUND: The most feared complications following endoscopic endonasal skull base surgery are arterial vascular injuries. Previously published literature is restricted to internal carotid artery injuries. The ideal method for controlling arterial bleeding during this kind of procedure is debated, and a variety of techniques have been advocated. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the management and outcome following intraoperative arterial injury during endoscopic endonasal skull base surgery...

We use the Hill function to analyze the dynamics of Tc-99m 2 methoxy-isobutyl-isonitrile (Tc-MIBI) scintigraphy data and to examine the earlier lower extremity microvascular perfusion of diabetic patients without typical clinical symptoms and with the preserved normal ankle-brachial index (ABI).Eighty-eight participants (30 healthy control, 34 diabetic patients, and 24 diabetic patients with peripheral arterial disease [PAD]) were recruited and applied Tc-MIBI scintigraphy. Fourteen diabetic patients with PAD also underwent computed tomography angiography (CTA) examination and were performed endovascular interventions...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this paper is to provide recent insights in management of neurologic complications of left-sided infective endocarditis (IE). RECENT FINDINGS: Cerebral lesions observed in IE patients are thought to involve synergistic pathophysiological mechanisms including thromboembolism, sepsis, meningitis, and small-vessel cerebral vasculitis. Brain MRI represents a major tool for the detection of asymptomatic events occurring in the majority of patients...

We performed a systematic literature review to investigate the safety and effectiveness of the use of REBOA during cesarean delivery in pregnant woman with morbidly adherent placenta. METHODS: A systematic review was performed. Relevant case reports and nonrandomized studies were identified by the literature search in MEDLINE...

REVIEW
Norman R Hertzer
Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms have an alarmingly high mortality rate that often exceeds 50%, even when patients survive long enough to be transported to hospitals. Historical data have shown that ruptures are especially likely to occur with aneurysms measuring ≥6 cm in diameter, but there are so many exceptions to this that several randomized clinical trials have been done in an attempt to determine whether smaller aneurysms should be repaired electively as soon as they are discovered. More recently, further trials have been conducted in order to compare the relative benefits and disadvantages of modern endovascular aneurysm repair to those of traditional open surgery...
