A patient underwent paclitaxel-eluting implantation for a saphenous vein graft stenosis. A follow-up angiogram at 8 months demonstrated no restenosis, with multifocal peristent contrast staining. After 10 years, a saphenous vein graft aneurysm was revealed within the stented segment. This late complication should be kept in mind when evaluating patients who have received prior drug-eluting stents.

The liver has a complex vascular supply, which involves the inflow of oxygenated blood through the hepatic artery (systemic circulation) and deoxygenated blood through the portal vein (portal circulation), as well as the outflow of deoxygenated blood through the hepatic veins to the inferior vena cava. A spectrum of vascular variants can involve the liver. Some of these variants may result in areas of enhancement that can mimic more serious pathologic conditions. In this article, the authors discuss a spectrum of variants and pathologic conditions that may involve the liver vasculature...

An elderly male presented for emergent repair of a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. For anticipated volume resuscitation, vasopressor administration, and hemodynamic monitoring, a large-bore central venous catheter was placed in the left internal jugular vein under ultrasound guidance before surgical incision. Initially, there were no readily apparent signs of venous perforation. However, a massive left hemothorax developed because of perforation of the brachiocephalic vein and violation of the pleural space...

Isolated internal iliac artery aneurysms (IIIAAs) are extremely rare. We present the case of a 75-year-old white Caucasian male patient admitted for right lower limb deep venous thrombosis and low-risk pulmonary embolism due to the compression of the external iliac vein from an IIIAA. A review of the literature was also performed to identify the epidemiologic, clinical characteristics and diagnostic and operative strategies of this disease. At present, a recommendation for the best operative strategy in the presence of an IIIAA is difficult...

A man in his late forties had lived as a recluse for more than ten years. He was found dead in his room. At autopsy, subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) was detected at the base of the brain, which weighed 1333 g. The cerebellar tonsil was swollen. The cerebral ventricle was enlarged and filled with blood. A hematoma was observed in the upper part of the left side of the cerebellar hemisphere. The location and size of SAH in this case indicated that the rupture of a cerebral aneurysm (CA) had occurred; however, CA was not detected...

BACKGROUND Splenic arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is a rare cause of portal hypertension which may manifest with abdominal pain, diarrhea, ascites, and/or hematemesis. Fistula formation may be traumatic or spontaneous. Eighty-six percent of spontaneous splenic AVFs occur in women, and 55% are associated with a preexisting splenic artery aneurysm. CASE REPORT A 64-year-old Caucasian female with unremarkable past medical history presented with new onset of left lower quadrant abdominal pain and persistent diarrhea...

REVIEW
Louisa J D van Dijk, André S van Petersen, Adriaan Moelker
Imaging of the mesenteric vasculature is crucial in diagnosing vascular disease of the gastro-intestinal tract such as acute or chronic mesenteric ischemia caused by arterial stenosis, embolism or thrombosis, mesenteric vein thrombosis and mesenteric aneurysm or dissection. The reference standard for imaging of the mesenteric vasculature is digital subtraction angiography. However, modalities as duplex ultrasonography, computed tomography angiography and magnetic resonance angiography are developing rapidly and may provide accurate imaging non-invasively...

Venous aneurysm, a rare venous anomaly, poses increased risk of distal thromboembolic event. Superficial venous aneurysm, such as greater saphenous vein aneurysm, are an uncommon subset with nonspecific symptoms and often a delay in diagnosis. Symptomatic patients or patients with a thromboembolic event may benefit from surgical intervention with low morbidity. This case report describes an isolated spontaneous greater saphenous vein aneurysm which was successfully ligated and resected for symptomatic relief and prevention of distal thromboembolism...

Azygous Vein Aneurysm (AVAs) is an uncommon cause of mediastinal mass. They are typically asymptomatic and do not commonly require treatment. They may mimic mediastinal adenopathy on chest radiographs. We present a case of AVAs found during evaluation of chest pain in a patient who was also found to have pulmonary thromboembolism. The mass was worked up with cross-sectional imaging techniques using both Computerized Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and ultimately Positron Emission Tomography (PET)...

INTRODUCTION: Haemobilia is an uncommon entity even though its frequency has increased with hepato-biliary instrumentation and procedures. It can be associated with obstructive jaundice and pancreatitis (Green et al., 2001) [1]. Haemobilia following cholecystectomy has frequently been reported in association with hepatic artery pseudo-aneurysm (Curet et al., 1981; Ribeiro et al., 1998) [2,3]. The authors wish to report a case of haemobilia due to a porto-biliary fistula presenting as acute pancreatitis...

BACKGROUND: Although the extracranial-to-intracranial high-flow bypass (EC-IC HFB) continues to be indispensable for complex aneurysms, the risk factors for the graft occlusion and whether the graft size changes after the bypass have not been well established. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the risk factors for the graft occlusion and to confirm whether graft diameters changed over time. METHODS: The data of 75 patients who suffered from complex internal carotid artery (ICA) aneurysms and were treated by EC-IC HFB using radial artery graft (RAG) or saphenous vein graft (SVG) with therapeutic ICA occlusion were evaluated...

Giant coronary artery aneurysm (CAA) is a rare clinicopathologic entity, and there is a dearth of information regarding presentation, diagnosis, and subsequent management. We present a case of a giant aneurysm of the proximal right coronary artery (RCA) that was 1.5 × 1.5 cm with direct communication between the aneurysmal cavity and the aortic sinus. The deficit in the RCA ostium was closed with a patch of bovine pericardium. The distal communication of the aneurysm to the mid-RCA was clearly delineated and tied off...

Primary use of the autogenous arteriovenous access is recommended by the National Kidney Foundation-Dialysis Outcomes Quality Initiative guidelines. In spite of troublesome comorbidities associated with basilic vein transposition (BVT), it is still the most preferred technique when autologous veins are not suitable to construct radio-cephalic fistula (RCF) and brachiocephalic fistula (BCF), arteriovenous fistula (AVF). The present study highlights our experience with BVT, with small incision technique, over a period of two years with excellent outcome...

True aneurysm of the tibial arteries is a rare clinical condition. We report the case of a 67-year-old man who presented with a gradual onset of right calf swelling and pain. Imaging revealed large aneurysms arising from the proximal peroneal arteries bilaterally, measuring 7.4cm and 4cm on the right and left respectively. A detailed medical history, clinical examination and laboratory investigations did not identify evidence of an underlying cause. A surgical reconstruction with an interposition vein graft was successfully performed...

Portal vein aneurysm (PVA) is a rare vascular dilatation of the portal vein. It is a rare vascular anomaly representing less than 3% of all visceral aneurysms and is not well understood. Usually, PVA are incidental findings, are asymptomatic, and clinical symptoms are proportionally related to size. Patients present with nonspecific epigastric pain or gastrointestinal bleeding with underlying portal hypertension. PVA may be associated with various complications such as biliary tract compression, portal vein thrombosis/rupture, duodenal compression, gastrointestinal bleeding, and inferior vena cava obstruction...

OBJECTIVE: Hemorrhage from a dialysis access can be a life-threatening condition. This study details our experience using access rescue strategies, including in situ graft replacement, primary repair, or conversion to an autogenous fistula; coupled with treatment of central vein occlusion to maintain access usage in patients presenting with conduit hemorrhage. METHODS: During a 3-yr period (2012-2014), 26 patients (14 women, 12 men) on chronic hemodialysis were treated for access conduit bleeding (n=18) or life-threatening hemorrhage (n=8); located in the upper extremity (n=23) or thigh (n=3)...

This case report describes the use of the Micro Vascular Plug (MVP) system in a mural-type vein of Galen aneurysmal malformation, resulting in successful occlusion of the cerebrovascular fistula. This result was confirmed with immediate cessation in blood flow and 6-month follow-up angiography. The unique characteristics of the MVP provide potential advantages over current embolic techniques for occlusion of high-flow, fistulous, intracranial vessels such as those seen in the vein of Galen aneurysmal malformation, and may represent a valuable addition to the currently available options...
