We report the case of a patient with ICA mycotic pseudo-aneurysm secondary to Lemierre's syndrome, urgently treated. A 75 years old man presented to E.R. with a left swelling lesion of the neck and complaining left visions lost since that morning, fever, hypotension and dyspnoea. Since fifteen days before developing symptoms, he had sore throat and odynophagia treated with a broad coverage of antibiotic therapy for presumed streptococcal pharyngitis. Preoperative CTA images revealed a circular lesion, involving the common carotid artery, carotid bulb, and the proximal part of the internal and external carotid arteries...

We report a rare case of aneurysmal formation of the left brachial artery complicated with infective endocarditis of the mitral valve. A 67-year-old man was referred to our institution for further examination of pulsatile mass at the left upper extremity. Computed tomography showed a left brachial arterial aneurysm with a diameter of 4 cm and gradual expansion of the aneurysm was also recognized. Furthermore, echocardiography revealed severe mitral valve regurgitation with a vegetation. There was no feature of congestive heart failure...

Jugular vein aneurysms are rare vascular abnormalities that are most commonly encountered in the pediatric population. We report two separate cases in infants, both of whom presented with enlarging neck masses and were found to have jugular vein aneurysms. Diagnosis was established with duplex ultrasonography, computed tomography angiography, digitally subtracted catheter venography, and magnetic resonance imaging in one case and magnetic resonance imaging with magnetic resonance angiography/magnetic resonance venography, gray scale ultrasonography, and digital subtraction catheter venography in the other case...

OBJECTIVE: Patients undergoing open abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair are at risk of perioperative infections that can lead to subsequent complications. Our goal was to understand how an initial infectious complication influences the risk of subsequent complications in this cohort of patients. METHODS: Using the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS-NSQIP) database (2005 to 2012), we evaluated the relationship between three index infectious complications after open elective AAA repair (pneumonia, deep/organ surgical site infection, and urinary tract infection) and subsequent complications...

INTRODUCTION: Ulnar artery aneurysms are rare with less than 150 previously reported. Previously ulnar aneurysms have been most commonly noted as occurring in the distal ulnar artery close to the palmar arch. CASE PRESENTATION: We present the case of a 47-year-old male with a background history of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) who attended our outpatient clinic with symptoms of distal embolization from a proximal ulnar artery aneurysm. Pre-operatively the aneurysm was thought to arise from the distal brachial artery, and only intra-operatively was the diagnosis of ulnar aneurysm made...

A 65-year-old woman with no significant medical history visited the emergency department complaining of epigastric discomfort. A computed tomography of the thorax and abdomen showed the attenuation of the pulmonary artery and a posterior mediastinal hematoma. Angiography showed a tortuous esophageal branch of the left gastric artery and a pseudoaneurysm, and during the later phase, the left lower lobe of the lung was enhanced, and finally, the left pulmonary vein was enhanced. We considered that the patient was exhibiting hypoperfusion of the left pulmonary artery arising from left pulmonary artery hypoplasia, since the left lung was supplying the systemic circulation...

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...

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...
