Either intracranial or extracranial pseudoaneurysms due to penetrating head injuries with gunshot are very rare entities. As the pseudoaneurysms of the superficial temporal artery are represented commonly with a pulsating mass lesion beneath scalp, the intracranial pseudoaneurysms are represented with symptoms including decreased conscious level, seizure, or focal neurological deficits. Here, two patients with combat related pseudoaneurysms are reported; one was in distal cortical branch of anterior cerebral artery and one was in superficial temporal artery...

Pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysms (PAPs) are uncommon but potentially lethal. They may be incidentally discovered on imaging, or following massive hemoptysis if they rupture, with high risk of mortality. The most frequent causes of PAP are trauma and infectious disease. Vasculitis, in particular Behçet's disease, neoplasm, congenital disease and pulmonary hypertension are rarer causes of PAP. A PAP can be suspected from chest X-Ray and contrast CT, but requires confirmation by CT angiography. Arteriography is no longer performed for diagnostic purposes, but can be useful to prepare endovascular occlusion of the PAP...

Introduction To evaluate the safety of percutaneous endovascular aortic repair and the relationship of access site characteristics to complications Materials and Methods All patients undergoing percutaneous TEVAR, EVAR and FEVAR procedures from January 2010 to May 2016 were retrospectively analysed for incidence of complications and their relationship to various access site characteristics like access artery size, degree of vessel calcification, skin to artery distance and sheath to artery ratio. Hemostasis occurring within 15 min after suture closure with or without manual compression was defined as primary hemostasis...

Inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placement is indicated for the treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients with a contraindication to or a failure of anticoagulation. With the advent of retrievable IVC filters and their ease of placement, an increasing number of such filters are being inserted for prophylaxis in patients at high risk for VTE. Available data show that only a small number of these filters are retrieved within the recommended period, if at all, prompting the FDA to issue a statement on the need for their timely removal...

We discuss a patient with late presentation of hemobilia following cholecystectomy, which is unusual because pseudoaneurysm caused by vascular injury during surgery typically presents soon after surgery. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography revealed a large blood clot arising from the biliary orifice with subsequent computed tomography angiography diagnosing a large pseudoaneurysm in the region of the cystic artery adjacent to the cholecystectomy clips. Embolization was performed via direct percutaneous puncture of the pseudoaneurysm...

Traumatic chopstick injury is very rare, especially in the vascular system. We present an unusual case of a 19-year-old man who presented at the emergency department after being stabbed with a chopstick by his elder brother. Computed tomography revealed a left subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm, which increased from 4 mm to 7 mm in diameter within 47 days. We successfully deployed a Niti-S stent graft for the increasing aneurysm, thereby avoiding a surgical operation. Balloon angioplasty was added for re-stenosis 8 months after the first intervention...

Cardiac pseudoaneurysm is a contained rupture of the myocardium limited by pericardial adhesions or the epicardial wall. Cardiac pseudoaneurysm may cause sudden death with a mortality of 30-45% in the first year, mostly resulting from rupture. Coronal and axial T2-weighted magnetic resonance images of a 65-year-old male patient admitted with dyspnoea, coughing and chest pain, present for the last 10 days, revealed a large pseudoaneursym of the left ventricle. Coronary bypass and left ventricular restoration operation was performed...

Aims: We aimed to compare imaging findings of infective endocarditis between computed tomography (CT) and transoesophageal echocardiography (TEE) using surgical inspection as a reference standard. Methods and results: Forty-nine patients (aged 54 ± 17 years, 69% men) who underwent pre-operative CT and TEE for infective endocarditis were included. Twelve of these patients had prosthetic valve endocarditis. Imaging findings of infective endocarditis were classified as vegetation, leaflet perforation, abscess/pseudoaneurysm, and paravalvular leakage...

Pseudoaneurysms of the cervical internal carotid artery are rare and usually result from trauma, infection, or rarely spontaneously. They harbor potential risk of life-threatening hemorrhage and warrant immediate management. Endovascular treatment in the form of stent placement and coiling is a well established technique for dealing with both intracranial and extracranial pseudoaneurysms. We present a case of a child who presented with fever, neck swelling, dysphagia, and respiratory distress in emergency for which clinical diagnosis of a neck abscess was made...

Treatment of painful internal snapping hip via arthroscopic release of the iliopsoas tendon is becoming the preferred option over open techniques because of the benefits of minimal dissection and fewer complications. However, complications do occur with arthroscopic techniques as well. We present the case of a 33-year-old woman who presented with painful internal snapping of her right hip and underwent arthroscopic release of the iliopsoas tendon. Following the procedure she continued to complain of pain in her groin and was therefore investigated further with a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) which revealed a swelling near the femoral circumflex vessels...

INTRODUCTION: Percutaneous balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV) has been limited by the risk of complications and restenosis. However, growing use of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has revived interest in this technique. We analyzed the current indications for BAV and outcomes in a single center. METHODS: Acute results and long-term outcomes were analyzed in a retrospective single-center registry of patients undergoing BAV between January 2013 and January 2016...

We present two cases of pseudoaneurysm (PSA) about the shoulder mimicking more common clinical entities-soft tissue neoplasm and septic arthritis-for which biopsy of the mass and joint aspiration were requested respectively. We review the imaging findings of PSA with emphasis on findings in musculoskeletal protocol MRI, including the identification of pulsation artifact in both cases, which was critical to establishing the correct diagnosis. In the proper clinical setting, with imaging findings demonstrating a complex mass or fluid collection, MR images should be scrutinized for the presence of pulsation artifact, which can help diagnose a high-flow vascular lesion and avoid a potentially harmful invasive procedure such as biopsy...

BACKGROUND: Mixed intracranial aneurysms are vascular lesions appearing in the ruptured saccular aneurysms whose blood is contained by perivascular tissues forming another cavity called pseudoaneurysm. All cases until now have been reported in the literature with subarachnoid hemorrhage. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 65-year-old woman presented with multiple brain aneurysms with no history of subarachnoid hemorrhage. Endovascular treatment was chosen for left-sided aneurysms [lateral carotid wall (LCW) and posterior communicating (PCom)]...

Symmetrical peripheral gangrene is an ischemic necrosis simultaneously involving the distal portions of two or more extremities without any proximal arterial obstruction or vasculitis. It may occur as a result of a large number of infectious and non-infectious causes. A few cases of symmetrical peripheral gangrene associated with cardiac disease have been described in the literature. We describe a case of symmetrical peripheral gangrene complicating ventricular pseudoaneurysm, probably a hitherto unreported occurrence...

Carotid injury during anterior skull base approaches is promptly recognizable and mandates immediate treatment; likewise, development of pseudoaneurysms after such injuries is anticipated and managed. We report here on the delayed development of a pseudoaneurysm as the result of avulsion of clival meningeal arteries that manifests as unalarming intraoperative bleeding that appears as brisk and arterial but very easily controlled. Immediate postoperative angiography is negative, necessitating repeated angiography to depict the delayed formation...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of a quality improvement (QI) program in reducing vascular complications during cardiac catheterization. BACKGROUND: Vascular access complications during cardiac catheterization are associated with higher morbidity and mortality. We implemented a QI program focused on using micropuncture techniques and targeting the "safe zone," an area below the inferior border of the inferior epigastric artery and above the inferior border of the femoral head, for femoral artery puncture...
