Robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery is the most common approach for the treatment of early-stage endometrial and cervical cancers in the US. Surgical staging requires pelvic and often aortic lymphadenectomy, depending on the primary tumor characteristics. Pelvic and aortic lymphadenectomy procedures may also be indicated for debulking of larger metastases to improve disease control. The infra-renal basin is an important anatomic site of metastasis from pelvic tumors, and robotic dissection techniques for this site have been described...

Covered Endovascular Reconstruction of Aortic Bifurcation (CERAB) is a new technique to treat extensive aortoiliac occlusive disease with covered expandable stent grafts to rebuild the aortoiliac bifurcation. Post stenting Doppler ultrasound (DUS) measurement of maximum peak systolic velocity (PSVmax) in the stented segment is widely used to determine patency and for follow up surveillance due to the portability, affordability and ease of use. Anecdotally, changes in hemodynamics created by CERAB can lead to falsely high PSVmax requiring CT angiography (CTA) for further assessment...

Our objective was to determine the relative merits of intervention or observation of type II endoleaks (T2Ls). A retrospective analysis was performed on 386 infra-renal endovascular aneurysm repair (IR-EVAR) patients from 2006 to 2015. Annual surveillance imaging of patients undergoing EVAR at our centre were analysed, and all endoleaks were subjected to a multidisciplinary team meeting for consideration and treatment. In the 10-year time frame, 386 patients (79.5±8.7 years) underwent an IR-EVAR. Eighty-one patients (21...

PURPOSE: We present two different cases of chronic aortic dissection, where we opted to land the stent graft into the false lumen to treat the associated aneurysm. CASE DESCRIPTIONS: For the first case, the goal of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) was to exclude the aneurysm from within the false lumen, because of a slit-like true lumen. In the second case, the visceral arteries came off the false lumen, with the renal vessels from the true lumen. False lumen TEVAR was performed and the infra-renal aorta fenestrated, as to ensure adequate perfusion...

We report the case for a 44-year-old patient without medical history, admitted in our department for bilateral acute limb ischemia (H6). The patient was hemodynamically stable and the physical examination shows limb sever ischemia (no femoral arterial pulses, coldness, cyanosis and paralysis). Abdominal CT angiography showed a complete occlusion of the infra renal abdominal aorta compatible with embolus. An embolectomy with Fogarty catheters was performed. Echocardiography showed a mass in the left atrium. Pathological examination of the material embolic confirmed the diagnosis of the cardiac myxoma...

Open repair for infra-renal abdominal aortic and iliac artery aneurysms (AAAs) is a robust treatment. On the other hand, endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) has been widespread because of its less invasiveness. However, patients after EVAR frequently require postoperative radiographic examinations and may feel anxiety for their endoleaks. We prospectively evaluated Health-related Quality of Life of the patients with these two fashions using the 8-item Short Form (SF-8). From 2011 to 2013, 89 consecutive elective cases of AAAs were treated...

Pericardial patches are commonly used in vascular surgery to close vessels. To facilitate studies of the neointimal hyperplasia that forms on the patch, we developed a rat model of patch angioplasty that can be used in either a vein or an artery, creating a patch venoplasty or a patch arterioplasty, respectively. Technical aspects of this model are discussed. The infra-renal IVC or aorta are dissected and then clamped proximally and distally. A 3 mm venotomy or arteriotomy is performed in the infrarenal inferior vena cava or aorta of 6 to 8 week-old Wistar rats...

BACKGROUND The etiology of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) may pose a significant diagnostic challenge because truly reversible causes of DVT are rare. In this regard, known pelvic anatomic abnormalities such as aortic and iliac aneurysms should be seriously considered as a complicating factor in patients presenting with acute DVT so as not to miss a potentially curable etiology of May-Thurner syndrome (MTS). CASE REPORT We report the case of a 69-year-old man with a known abdominal aortic aneurysm and bilateral iliac artery aneurysms who presented with an acute DVT...

Chronic mesenteric ischemia (CMI) is a rare disorder caused by severe stenosis of the mesenteric arterial supply that results in postprandial pain and weight loss. Treatment options are surgical or endovascular. Surgical bypass can be performed in an antegrade fashion from the supraceliac abdominal aorta (AA) or the distal descending thoracic aorta or in a retrograde fashion from the infrarenal aorta or the common iliac artery. However, in some patients with disease of the descending thoracic aorta or the AA, another site for the proximal anastomosis needs to be found...

BACKGROUND: Alloplastic aortic graft infection is a devastating complication following aortic surgery. It is associated with excessively high mortality and morbidity caused by anastomotic rupture or septicemia. Many authors consider in situ replacement after complete surgical graft removal as the method of choice. However, there is an ongoing debate about the most suitable material for reconstruction. We present our first experiences with replacing the descending and infrarenal aorta using custom-made bovine pericardium grafts...
