INTRODUCTION: Veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO(1)) systems are a life-saving option in the treatment of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS(2)), but may be encumbered by severe vascular complications in the groin. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A pregnant woman was admitted with respiratory failure due to H1N1 influenza. VA-ECMO was inserted percutaneously by the intensivists and then accidentally removed by the patient after 8 days. 24h later VA-ECMO was reinstalled with surgical denudation of femoral vessels in another department...

Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) remains functional after kidney transplantation in many patients. The aim of this historical cohort study was to evaluate the data on AVF-related complications and surgery performed after kidney transplantation in our patients. The study cohort included the recipients of a kidney transplant with AVF complications between January 2006 and April 2012. 74 renal transplant recipients (47% male, mean age 51 ± 10, range 14 to 73 years) with complications related to AVF were analyzed...

144 patients were operated on for deep vein thrombosis. Color duplex lower limb vessels scanning was he basic diagnostic procedure performed preoperatively. Operative treatment corresponded floating trombectomy and main vein placation as a means of pulmonary embolism prophylaxis. Thrombosis located in deep tibial veins (65.9%), deep femoral vein (12.5%), popliteal vein (9.7%), femoral vein (8.4%) and lower limb subcutaneous veins (3.5%). 88,9% of thrombs were considered as floating. Thrombectomy was performed in 90...

Currently, the preferred treatment of persistent ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction is primary angioplasty. After successful primary angioplasty, up to 30% of patients develop left ventricular dilation and heart failure, as a result of incomplete microvascular reperfusion. The pathophysiology of the microvascular dysfunction in the setting of primary angioplasty is complex and not completely known. Distal embolization of necrotic and thrombotic material acts as a mayor factor. No treatment has so far demonstrated proven efficacy in this scenario...

We report the clinical case of a 48-year-old woman with advanced renal cell carcinoma, and an inferior vena cava thrombus extending into the right atrium. The patient underwent complete tumor excision with radical nephrectomy and inferior vena cava trombectomy using adjunctive cardiopulmonary bypass and deep hypothermic circulatory arrest. Pathological studies revealed no capsular invasion by the renal cell carcinoma. Eighteen months postoperatively the patient is asymptomatic and on immunosuppressive therapy for suspected metastatic disease...

OBJECTIVES: The optimal surgical technique for correction of left ventricular aneurysms is still debated. This study compares the midterm results achieved with linear resection or endoventricular repair. METHODS: In the period February 2002-February 2004 forty-five consecutive patients with anterior LVA have been operated. The patients were divided in two groups according to the applied surgical technique--Group-I endoventricular repair in 23 pts (52%) and Group-II linear resection in 22 pts (47%)...

BACKGROUND: Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is a well recognized complication of patients with end-stage cirrhosis and its incidence ranges from 2 to 26%. The aim of this study was to analyze the results and long-term follow-up of a consecutive series of liver transplants performed in patients with PVT and compare them with patients transplanted without PVT. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between July 1995 and June 2006, 26 liver transplants were performed in patients with PVT (8...

OBJECTIVES: In patients with imperative indication, organ preserving kidney tumour surgery is state of the art. We present our management of an extensive centrally located renal cell carcinoma. METHODS: The patient was suffering from a 8x6x6cm centrally located tumour in the solitary left kidney which infiltrated the lower pole of the kidney, the hilum and built a large tumour thrombus entering the vena cava inferior. We performed a radical nephrectomy with cavotomy, tumour trombectomy and tumour resection in cold ischemia at the work bench (R0)...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this prospective study was to analyse a group of patients with DVT (deep vein thrombosis) treated at home with LMWH (low-molecular weight heparin), compression and intensive mobilisation and to evaluate its feasibility, efficacy and safety from possible risks of pulmonary embolism. METHODS: From March 1997 to September 1999, 96 consecutive patients with diagnosed DVT were enrolled in a prospective study and treated at home with enoxaparin (Clexane Rh ne-Poulenc) administered subcutaneously at doses depending on body weight (1 mg/kg) b...
