INTRODUCTION: Popliteal artery aneurysms (PAA) are the most prevalent form of peripheral arterial aneurysms. Greater saphenous vein grafts and endoaneurysmorrhaphy remains the mainstay therapy for open repair of PAA. True aneurysmal degeneration of lower extremity infrainguinal autologous vein grafts are relatively rare and its etiology is not completely understood. CASE PRESENTATION: We present a case of a 57-year-old man with recurrent autologous venous graft aneurysmal dilatations following a surgical popliteal artery aneurysm repair...

BACKGROUND: Preservation of the superficial Sylvian veins (SSV) is essential to prevent neurological deficits during Sylvian dissection. We describe an appropriate surgical approach for unruptured middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms to preserve these veins by using indocyanine green videoangiography (ICG-VA). METHODS: Between August 2014 and August 2015, we performed microsurgical clipping for 37 unruptured MCA aneurysms in 36 patients. We classified all the cases into 3 types according to the location between the Sylvian fissure and the SSV...

OBJECTIVE: Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is widely used with excellent results, but its infectious complications can be devastating. In this paper, we report a multicenter experience with infected EVAR, symptoms, and options for explantation and their outcome. METHODS: We have reviewed all consecutive endograft explants for infection at 11 French university centers following EVAR, defined as index EVAR, from 1998 to 2015. Diagnosis of infected aortic endograft was made on the basis of clinical findings, cultures, imaging studies, and intraoperative findings...

This is a case report that suggests the possible association between multiple splanchnic arterial aneurysms and long-distance running. The clinical features of one patient admitted at Chungbuk National University Hospital for treatment of multiple splanchnic arterial aneurysms were reviewed. A 54-year-old man had a recurrent, intermittent and epigastric pain for 2 months. There was no abnormality in gastroscopy and colonoscopy. An abdominal computed tomography angiography documented calcified superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and splenic artery aneurysms...

We present an unusual case of a 40-year-old female patient with liver cirrhosis and diffuse abdominal pain. The imaging studies revealed a huge renal vein aneurysm. The patient refused any interventional management, despite the risk of possible rupture, and after a week of mild pain therapy, she was discharged. She was followed up closely, and after one year, she remains asymptomatic. Conservative management of such patients has been described before with success. However, open repair or percutaneous thrombosis of the aneurysm remains the indicated therapy, when vein patency is an issue for organ viability...

Anterior tibial pseudoaneurysm is a rare complication after interlocking screw insertion in tibial nailing. We present the case of a 28-year-old male patient with this complication with a 6-week delay after tibial nailing of a right tibial fracture type 42-A1 of the Association for the Study of Internal Fixation (AO/ASIF) classification. On presentation to our emergency department, the patient's complaints were solemnly intermittent pain and occasional swelling of his proximal lower leg. Deep vein thrombosis, compartment syndrome, and implant dislocation were ruled out, and the patient was discharged after his symptoms improved without further intervention...

BACKGROUND: Splenic artery aneurysms are the commonest visceral and third most common abdominal artery aneurysms, having a strong association with both pregnancy and multiparity. Here we report possibly the first case of a giant splenic artery aneurysm in association with a smaller portal vein aneurysm, in a woman who had never conceived, leading to non-cirrhotic portal hypertension. CASE PRESENTATION: A 40-year-old Pakistani Asian woman who had no evidence of liver cirrhosis presented in April 2016 for a diagnostic workup of ascites, massive splenomegaly, and pancytopenia...

The authors describe a case of a basilar trunk aneurysm with long-term follow-up after successful bypass and proximal occlusion. A 64-year-old woman had a giant aneurysm of the basilar trunk and underwent external carotid artery-to-posterior cerebral artery vein graft bypass surgery and proximal clipping of the basilar artery, which was followed by low-dose aspirin (100 mg/d) treatment. No ischemic symptoms and lesions developed and the thrombosed aneurysm was stable during 11 years of follow-up. An extracranial-intracranial high flow bypass combined with immediate proximal occlusion and aspirin administration may be an acceptable treatment option for patients with giant posterior circulation aneurysms...

BACKGROUND: Left-sided inferior vena cava (LIVC) and duplicated inferior vena cava (DIVC) are rare asymptomatic congenital abnormalities. Unrecognized, these anomalies can be the source of major injuries and cause serious life threatening bleeding complications especially during abdominal aortic surgery. METHODS: Retrospective data for patients with two major inferior vena cava (IVC) anomalies that underwent aortic surgery over a 13-year period were collected. Patient demographics, type of aortic disease and caval anomaly, surgical approach, type of aortic reconstruction associated with procedure on caval vein, postoperative complications and in-hospital mortality were recorded...

INTRODUCTION: Hughes-Stovin syndrome is a life-threatening disorder of unknown etiology. This condition is characterized by vasculitis, deep venous thrombosis and aneurysms that mainly involve the pulmonary arteries resulting in hemoptysis. It has been described in literature less than 40 times. However, we believe it is not very uncommon as it might be diagnosed as pulmonary embolism solely. In such cases, anticoagulation therapy augments the risk of life-threatening hemoptysis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We report the case of a 35 years old, Egyptian female patient with Hughes-Stovin syndrome, who initially presented with lower limb deep vein thrombosis and coughing of blood...

AIM: Managing ruptured giant internal carotid artery (ICA) aneurysms in an emergency situation is very challenging. By reporting two cases, we discuss the role of the Excimer Laser-assisted Non-occlusive Anastomosis (ELANA) technique as an armamentarium for cerebrovascular surgeons dealing with giant ICA aneurysms presenting with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The management of two consecutive patients treated with ELANA bypass during a 6-month period (June- December 2013) for ruptured giant ICA aneurysms in an emergency setting is presented...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Cerebral revascularization strategies may become necessary in select patients who present with challenging cerebral aneurysms. In this study, we present the techniques of a moderate-flow extra-intracranial bypass using a short interposition vein graft and concurrent aneurysm management. METHODS: The short interposition vein graft was used for the reconstruction of complex cerebral aneurysms in nine patients. In eight of them, the superficial temporal artery (STA) main trunk was used as a donor site for the anastomosis of a short interposition vein graft, and an extracranial vertebral artery (VA) was used in one case...

Coronary artery aneurysms are a rare finding and even more any coronary dilation having a diameter 1.5 times greater than the adjacent artery qualified as giant. No established treatment protocol exists. We report the case of a 75-year old man with a clinical symptom of chest pain on exertion, worsening in the last 6 months, who was diagnosed with a giant left main aneurysm. Surgical ligation of the proximal left anterior descending artery and first diagonal and triple bypass, using saphenous vein graft to vascularize the proximal circumflex artery, left anterior descending artery and first diagonal, was performed...

A link between congenital vascular malformation (CVM) of the liver and Trisomy 21 has been suggested. We reviewed all children with Trisomy 21 referred for investigation to a specialist paediatric hepatobiliary unit (1985-2015).Forty-five children with Trisomy 21 were identified; 7 (15%) had a defined CVMs (4 female). All such infants were also diagnosed with a range of cardiac defects. CVMs were divided according to the nature of the vascular connection.Group (i) (n = 3) Abnormal veno-venous anomaly. This included porto-caval shunt and patent ductus venosus (n = 2)...
