The creation of an arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is a common surgical procedure in hemodialysis patients suffering from end-stage renal disease (ESRD). However, several complications may occur after surgery, including thrombosis, stenosis, and aneurysm. These complications are attributed to hemodynamics perturbations including pathophysiological wall shear stress (WSS) and flow recirculation zones. In this study, we present a computational hemodynamic analysis in a model of a mature side-to-side AVF, which is then validated by experimental measurements...

Background Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS) is a recently recognized autosomal dominant connective tissue disease. The manifestations of LDS include vascular tortuosity, scoliosis, craniosynostosis, aneurysm and aortic dissections. Clinical presentation A 35-year-old woman treated with Stanford type B aortic dissection and breast cancer was referred to us for Borden type II dural arteriovenous fistula (dAVF) draining to the vein of Galen, involving the midline of tentorium cerebelli. The dAVF was treated successfully by combined transarterial and transvenous embolization...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of intramedullary nailing for benign lesions of the proximal femur. METHOD: A retrospective analysis was carried out on 68 cases of benign lesions in the proximal femur at our hospital from April 2002 to April 2013 (38 men and 30 women). Mean age at surgery was 35.5 years (range, 22-56 years). The cases were divided into two groups: curettage of the lesion with bone grafting only as the grafting group (32 cases) and internal fixation after removal of the lesion as the fixation group (36 cases)...

Stent grafts (SGs) are widely used for treatment of failing vascular accesses, fistulas and grafts. The mechanical barrier of the covered stent prevents in-stent stenosis and can be used to effectively correct ruptured vein and aneurysms. Treatment of cannulation zone stenosis with SG can be justified when its use is obligatory, in order to prevent total access loss. Although there are worrying complications attendant on SG insertion and cannulation, including jeopardizing future access creation, most studies report no complications of SG in cannulation zone stenosis...

INTRODUCTION: While acute appendicitis is a common surgical problem, the simultaneous occurrence of appendicitis and an infected iliac artery pseudoaneurysm is exceedingly rare. We report the successful treatment of an infected right external iliac artery pseudo aneurysm in the 1setting of acute appendicitis. PRESENTATION OF CASE: The patient is an 83-year-old male who presents with severe sepsis, right lower quadrant and right leg pain. Additional past medical history is significant for rectal cancer status post resection and radiation therapy in 1997...

Emergency pancreatico-duodenectomy(EPD) is a very rare procedure and few reports are present in medical literature. It is an uncommon approach, usually used for emergency surgical treatment of abdominal trauma that involves the head of the pancreas or the duodenum, but it is also a surgical tool for the treatment of ruptured aneurysms, bleeding pseudocysts, duodenal perforations, uncontrollable hemorrhage from ulcers and tumors, severe infectious complications of acute pancreatitis or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography related complications (1,2)...

Celiac artery aneurysms are rare and typically warrant surgical treatment. Atherosclerosis is their chief cause. Symptomatic patients usually present with abdominal pain. Surgical resection of celiac artery aneurysms is associated with low morbidity and mortality rates. We report the case of a patient whose 2.2-cm celiac artery aneurysm we resected, with subsequent saphenous vein bypass grafting from the celiac trunk to the splenic and common hepatic arteries. In addition, we briefly discuss other treatment options...

OBJECTIVE: Cases of a ruptured pericallosal artery aneurysm with a high risk of intraoperative premature rupture and technical difficulties for proximal vascular control require a technique for the early and safe establishment of proximal vascular control. METHODS: A combined pterional or subfrontal approach exposes the bilateral A1 segments or the origin of the ipsilateral A2 segment of the anterior cerebral artery (ACA) for proximal vascular control. Proximal control far from the ruptured aneurysm facilitates tentative clipping of the rupture point of the aneurysm without a catastrophic premature rupture...

Infectious anastomotic pseudoaneurysm complicating renal transplant is rare, but probably under-reported with <30 cases worldwide. We report a 45-year-old man with hypertension, diabetes mellitus and end stage renal failure, who had a renal transplant anastomosed to the right external iliac artery and vein. Postoperatively, he made a slow recovery with malaise and persistent vague right iliac fossa discomfort. Ultrasound scan 1 month postoperatively showed perinephric collection, and fluid culture grew Enterococcus faecium and Pseudomonas aeruginosa...

BACKGROUND The etiology of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) may pose a significant diagnostic challenge because truly reversible causes of DVT are rare. In this regard, known pelvic anatomic abnormalities such as aortic and iliac aneurysms should be seriously considered as a complicating factor in patients presenting with acute DVT so as not to miss a potentially curable etiology of May-Thurner syndrome (MTS). CASE REPORT We report the case of a 69-year-old man with a known abdominal aortic aneurysm and bilateral iliac artery aneurysms who presented with an acute DVT...

Primary axillary venous aneurysms are rare, and there are only a handful of cases reported previously. The patient can be either asymptomatic or symptomatic, and can present with local axillary swelling, dilated venules in overlying skin associated with local discomfort, peripheral neuropathy, or pulmonary embolisms. A 30-year-old man presented with a four-month history of an uncomfortable lump in his left armpit that was associated with paraesthesia radiating down to his left forearm and hand. He had no history of arm swelling and had a normal motor neurological examination...

Peripheral aneurysm and pseudo-aneurysm of an artery is a well-recognized, but rare phenomenon in children. We report a case of an axillary artery aneurysm in a 2 year-old boy with Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) septic shock, Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), and Multi-Organ Dysfunction Syndrome (MODS). Definitive surgical treatment with left axillary artery aneurysm exclusion and bypass with greater saphenous vein graft was performed. To our knowledge, this is the only axillary artery aneurysm ever reported in a child...

A 76-year-old woman, diagnosed 5 years previously with an asymptomatic mediastinal bronchogenic cyst, was referred to our department as the mass had grown slightly larger. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging scans revealed an azygous vein aneurysm with a pulmonary arterial thromboembolism. The patient was treated with heparin for 5 days, and anticoagulation therapy with edoxaban was continued for 12 months. The thrombus resolved, and the aneurysm remained unchanged. An azygous vein aneurysm is a very rare condition that causes pulmonary arterial thromboembolism...

PURPOSE: Although neuroradiologists and skull base neurosurgeons are aware of the existence of veins within the clivus, such vessels have seldom been described in the literature. The aim of the present study is to elucidate the detailed venous structure of the clivus. METHODS: Computed tomography digital subtraction venography (CT-DSV) images of 50 unruptured aneurysm cases were examined retrospectively. RESULTS: Eighteen emissary veins were identified in 14 (28...

Aneurysmal disease of the internal iliac vein is rare, with no standard indication for or accepted modality of treatment. Here we report an instance of unilateral, primary left internal iliac venous aneurysm and associated pelvic venous insufficiency. Following extensive workup for alternative causes, the aneurysm and left gonadal vein were coil embolized with good effect.

True and false aneurysms of veins are very rare conditions and only few cases have been described in literature. We present a case of 56-year-old female with personal history of primary arterial hypertension and connective tissue disease. Ultrasound of the neck showed saccular, compressible, hypoechoic structure that appeared to have a direct communication with left external jugular vein lumen. The venous aneurysm was removed and the histopathology of the mass showed a grossly dilated vein, with continuous aspects of the entire three layer of the venous wall, classifying it as a venous aneurysm...
