INTRODUCTION: Median arcuate ligament syndrome (MALS) or Dunbar syndrome is a rare clinical entity characterized by celiac trunk compression by median arcuate ligament and variable gastrointestinal symptoms (postprandial epigastric pain, nausea, weight loss, anorexia and diarrhea). However, some degree of radiographic compression is observed in 10%-24% of asymptomatic patients. Besides the extrinsic vascular compression, MALS has a multifactorial etiology and it has been suggested as a neurogenic disease resulting in altered sensation and pain from the somatic nerves in the splanchnic plexus...

The left internal thoracic artery (ITA) is currently an artery of choice for revascularization of coronary arteries. Ultrasonographic duplex scanning (USDS) and ultrasound Doppler flowmetry (UDF) are sequential techniques to control patency of the ITA at stages of rendering care for patients on restoring coronary blood flow. We compared two methods of measuring the volumetric blood flow velocity: by means of USDS and UDF. The obtained results were statistically processed. It was determined that transthoracic USDS and intraoperative UDF in the assessment of the volumetric blood velocity through the ITA in patients with coronary artery disease are comparable methods, provided the patients have similar parameters of central haemodynamics...

BACKGROUND: Common femoral artery is still the most frequently site used for vascular access, mostly for peripheral arterial interventions and its puncture remains a significant source of patient's morbidity. Manual compression (MC) has been the gold standard for hemostasis after femoral catheterization until recently, but only in the last few years, vascular closure devices (VCDs) are replacing MC due to their rapid development. Nowadays also vascular surgeons are becoming familiar with VCDs...

Superior vena cava (SVC) stenosis or thrombosis is a well-known complication of central venous catheterization for endocavitary treatments, hemodialysis, or chemotherapy. In cancer patients, these SVC lesions are often symptomatic due to intimal damage and chemotherapy toxicity. We report our experience with six patients treated between 2007 and 2012 via an endovascular approach (n=5) or a direct surgical approach (n=1). All patients had SVC syndrome with facial edema, headache and upper limb edema. In three cases, the catheter was in place when the clinical symptoms occurred...

Trousseau syndrome is a rare phenomenon in cancer patients characterized by superficial migratory thrombophlebitis. In this brief report, the authors describe three recent case presentations of patients without a prior history of cancer who were treated for cellulitis prior to be admitted to the hospital. All three patients were found to have "negative" testing on venous duplex scanning. Communication with the technicians and additional clinical and laboratory evaluations confirmed Trousseau syndrome as well as an underlying hematologic cancer in each patient...

A young male underwent decompressive craniotomy for an intracerebral bleed. A right-sided subclavian central venous catheter was placed in the operating room after induction of anesthesia. Postoperatively, he was shifted to Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for mechanical ventilation due to low Glasgow coma scale. He had an episode of severe agitation and straining on the tracheal tube in the evening same day. On the 2nd postoperative day in ICU, his airway pressures were high, and chest X-ray revealed massive pleural effusion on right side...

Long-term iliofemoral complications induced by radiation include vascular (arterial and venous) lesions, nervous lesions and soft tissue loss that can be cutaneous and subcutaneous and potentially lead to radionecrosis with vessel exposure. We present five cases of groin radionecrosis. There were three men and two women (age 30-73 years). Radiotherapy had been delivered 15 years earlier in three cases, and 2 years earlier in two cases. Symptoms were intermittent claudication (n=1), critical ischemia (n=1), and septic hemorrhage (n=1)...

INTRODUCTION: Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) poses an extremely difficult problem in cirrhotic patients who are in need of a liver transplant. The prevalence of PVT in patients with cirrhosis ranges from 0.6% to 26% Nery et al. (2015) [1]. The presence of PVT is associated with more technically difficult liver transplant and in certain cases can be a contraindication to liver transplant. The only option for these patients with extensive PVT would be a multi-visceral transplant, the later unfortunately has a much higher morbidity and mortality compared to liver only transplant Smith et al...

An arteriovenous fistula is an abnormal connection between the arterial and venous systems. In the literature, there are well-described ultrasound findings of iatrogenic arteriovenous fistula as a potential complication from percutaneous transarterial or transvenous procedures. The most important sign is direct visualization of the fistula in the place of the access site. It is necessary to look for secondary signs of arterialization of the veins, which can suggest a diagnosis of an arteriovenous fistula. However, the accuracy and diagnostic quality of duplex scanning in the diagnostics of a congenital or spontaneous arteriovenous fistula of the head and neck area in adults have been poorly described in the literature...
