The aims of our study are to evaluate ureterovesical jet flow Doppler ultrasound (US) in patients with residual ureteral stone after extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) and to compare with unobstructed contralateral ureter. Patients who have residual ureteral stone in intravenous pyelography (IVP) and/or computed tomography (CT) after ESWL and unobstructed contralateral ureter in 20 patients were prospectively evaluated with Doppler US. The mean peak velocity of the Doppler waveforms was obtained on the residual ureteral stone and contralateral non-obstructed ureter (17...

With the growing number of diabetics and patients with multiple problems vascular access surgery increases and therapies become more challenging. If haemodialysis is the therapy of choice for renal failure, veins of the patient's upper limbs should be preserved. Autologic fistula of the upper limb--most commonly between the radial artery and the cephalic vein--is the best option with the lowest complication risks. The purpose of vascular access surgery is to reconstruct and maintain the function of a vascular access, in collaboration with nephrologists and radiologists...

Seventy one surgical procedures on abdominal aorta in patients with horseshoe kidney have been reported in literature until 1980. Bergan reviewed 30 operations of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) in these patients until 1974. Of them 3 AAA were ruptured. Gutowitz noticed 57 surgically treated AAA in patients with horseshoe kidney until 1984. Over the period from 1991 to 1996 thirty nine new cases were reported , including 2 ruptured AAA. The surgery of the abdominal aorta in patients with horseshoe kidney is associated with the following major problems: -reservation of anomalous (aberrant) renal arteries; reservation of the kidney excretory system; approach to the abdominal aorta (especially in patients with AAA) and graft placement The aim of the paper is the presentation of 5 new patients operated for abdominal aorta with horseshoe kidney...

We investigated 77 patients (61 men, 16 women) with clinical signs of PAOD, without previous arterial intervention, using the color dupplex sonography and angiography. An average age was 63.5 +/- 11 years. We followed the risk factors of the atherosclerosis (smoking, diabetes mellitus, arterial hypertension, hyperlipidemia and obesity) and almost 86% of the patients had multiple risk factors. We found significantly higher prevalence of smoking in men and higher prevalence of obesity in women. We found significantly higher occurrence of hemodynamicaly significant atherosclerotic changes in the infrapopliteal area in diabetic patients...

Nitric oxide (NO), the key mediator synthesized by different NO synthase isoenzymes, plays an important role in endothelial function. It was recently shown that hyperhomocysteinemia is an important regulator of NO synthase. We investigated the role of homocysteine (Hcys) in erectile dysfunction (ED), which is associated with the defect in NO generation. Thirty-one nondiabetic patients and 33 control cases were evaluated. Patients with diabetes, coronary artery disease, vitamin B(12), or folate deficiency were excluded in the study...

OBJECTIVES: To establish a relationship between Doppler-Duplex colour ultrasound after prostaglandin intracorporeal injec tion and psychological features in patients suffering from erectile dysfunction. METHODS: Forty two patients with erectile dysfunction were prospectively evaluated with Doppler-Duplex colour ultra sonography after intracavernosal injection of 20 micrograms of E1 prostaglandin. Dynamic vascular pattern were analyzed an penile tumescence were graded in poor, moderate or good (I, II, III)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate short and medium-term results of endovascular repair of the aortoiliac bifurcation for occlusive disease by the kissing stent technique. METHOD: Twenty patients were included in this retrospective study between May 1999 and November 2002 (13 men, mean age 58 years, range 42-86). Fifteen were treated for bilateral common iliac artery stenosis (75%), four for unilateral common iliac artery occlusion with or without controlateral stenosis (20%), and one for bilateral common iliac artery occlusion (5%)...

A 58-year-old patient with end-stage idiopatic renal disease underwent kidney transplantation from a cadaveric donor. Approximately one year after the transplant he complained of abdominal pain and presented a pulsating mass in his right pelvic region. Dupplex study and arteriography were performed and showed a large pseudoaneurysm arising from the right common iliac artery. We report the case in which a covered stent placement and an embolization of the right internal iliac artery solved the problem with successful clinical and radiological results...

Celiac artery compression syndrome is a rare disorder and characterized by postprandial intestinal angina caused by insufficient blood supply to the gastrointestinal organs in symptomatic patients. This pathology is also known as median arcuate syndrome. The authors report a case of 12-year-old boy with severe celiac artery compression by the median arcuate ligament that was diagnosed by Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) and color dupplex ultrasonography (US). There was only a bruit in the upper midepigastrium, and there were no gastrointestinal symptoms despite severe compression of celiac trunk...

The purpose of this retrospective study was to assess mid-term results of valvuloplasty in patients presenting chronic recurring venous stasis ulceration. From 1988 to 1993, valvuloplasty was performed in the superficial femoral vein of 33 lower extremities in 28 patients presenting recurring ulceration. In 23 cases, previous surgery in the superficial venous system or perforating vein had failed. Preoperative work-up demonstrated primary deep venous insufficiency (PDVI) in 22 extremities (group I), proximal PDVI in association with distal postthrombotic syndrome (PTS) in 10 (group II), and Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome in 1...

Hereditary protein S deficiency (HSPD) is a predisposing factor to recurrent venous thrombosis but is not currently associated with stroke. We report two cases of HSPD revealed by stroke in young adults. The first one was a 36-year-old patient whith a pure motor hemiplegia, who gradually recovered without sequelae. Total and free protein S was decreased (55 and 10%). One of his brothers died from pulmonary embolism at 20 years and a sister had low protein S level without clinical signs. The second case was a 26-year-old patient who had a right hemiplegia with aphasia due to an infarction in middle cerebral artery area...
