We report a case of a symptomatic and rapidly expanding aneurysm of an in-situ saphenous vein graft in a 70-year-old man with extensive prior open and endovascular procedures for aneurysmal disease. He was was found to have full-length aneurysmal dilation with rapid progression over the course of six months. Successful ligation and exclusion with subtotal excision of the aneurysmal segment was performed and revision bypass was foregone due to adequate distal perfusion via collateralization. This rare complication of autologous vein bypass graft typically occurs at the anastomoses and merits aneursymorrhaphy or ligation...

BACKGROUND: Visceral venous aneurysms are exceedingly rare, and until now, there have been no reports of this phenomenon in the adrenal vasculature. This report details the first adrenal venous aneurysm reported in the literature. The aneurysm presented as an 18-cm mass that was initially suspected to be a hematoma or tumor on the basis of the complex medical history of the patient, which included hemophilia A and testicular cancer. After surgical excision, pathologic examination confirmed this mass to be a 15...

The usual manifestation of brachial artery aneurysms is the incidental finding of a swelling of the arm, combined with paresthesia or pain in some cases. The etiology is often traumatic or secondary to drug abuse. Pathophysiology of brachial artery dilation in these cases is not completely clear. We herein describe a case of a 61-year-old male presenting with a giant, painful, pulsatile mass on his left arm. He was submitted to a cadaveric kidney transplant in 2005. He had a functioning arteriovenous fistula (AVF) on his right arm, and a spontaneously thrombosed radiocephalic AVF on his left arm...

Takayasu arteritis (TA) is the third most common childhood vasculitis and its clinical manifestations depend on the arteries involved. We report a case of a 9-year-old boy with multiple aneurysms in carotid and iliac arteries, subclavian and coronary arteries, and abdominal aorta. At the age of 7 years, he presented with recurrent fever and hepatosplenomegaly. An angio-computed tomography scan showed aneurysms in the left subclavian artery, abdominal aorta, and both proximal iliac arteries. He was diagnosed with TA and was treated with corticosteroids, aspirin, and enalapril...

BACKGROUND: Direct and endovascular combined surgery has been performed to treat large to giant internal carotid artery (ICA) aneurysms. This report describes successful treatment of the large ICA aneurysm by coiling of the aneurysm via extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) saphenous vein graft (SVG) just after bypass and ICA proximal ligation. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 66-year-old woman presented with left ICA supraclinoid aneurysm with progressive visual field defect and impaired visual acuity in the left eye...

BACKGROUND: This study summarizes our experience in the surgical management of arterial lesions secondary to Behçet disease (BD) and assesses the value of endografts. METHODS: Data from BD patients with arterial lesions managed surgically in our center from January 1998 to December 2015 were studied retrospectively. Surgical procedures, graft selection, graft-related complications, and retreatments were analyzed. RESULTS: We recruited 33 patients (29 men and 4 women; male-to-female ratio, 7...

Emire Seyahi
Behçet's disease is a multisystem disorder with unknown etiology and a unique geographic distribution. The disease is characterized by recurrent skin-mucosa lesions and sight-threatening panuveitis. Vascular involvement, which is more common and more severe among males, has also equally characteristic features such as affecting mostly veins, having a significant tendency for thrombosis, and running a relapsing course. Lower extremity vein thrombosis (LEVT) is the most frequent manifestation, followed by vena cava inferior thrombosis...

Theoretical properties of a multi-scale opening (MSO) algorithm for two conjoined fuzzy objects are established, and its extension to separating two conjoined fuzzy objects with different intensity properties is introduced. Also, its applications to artery/vein (A/V) separation in pulmonary CT imaging and carotid vessel segmentation in CT angiograms (CTAs) of patients with intracranial aneurysms are presented. The new algorithm accounts for distinct intensity properties of individual conjoined objects by combining fuzzy distance transform (FDT), a morphologic feature, with fuzzy connectivity, a topologic feature...

Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) of splenic vessels is rare. It is most commonly caused by spontaneous rupture of an extant splenic artery aneurysm into an adjacent vein, or by traumatic or iatrogenic pseudoaneurysm. Blunt abdominal trauma can sometimes lead to vascular damage to spleen, resulting in AVF formation. Presently described is case of an elderly patient with high-grade splenic injury. Early post-traumatic AVF was detected by volume-rendered 3D reconstruction using fused arterial and venous phase computed tomography (CT) images...

Popliteal artery aneurysms are the common peripheral artery aneurysm. Aneurysm due to exostosis is rare in occurrence. Here, we present a rare presentation of popliteal artery aneurysm in siblings which was managed by aneurysm excision and revascularization with interposition reversed long saphenous vein graft in one child and follow-up in the other.

Aneurysm of a pulmonary vein is a rare vascular anomaly that is usually discovered incidentally as a pulmonary nodule or mediastinal mass. Most patients do not have any symptoms but some patients can present with dyspnea, hemoptysis, or cerebral thromboembolism. Proper diagnosis is crucial as to avoid unnecessary testing or surgical procedures. We highlight a case of an asymptomatic 59-year-old female with a pulmonary vein aneurysm presenting as a 1.5 cm right infrahilar nodule on contrast-enhanced CT during evaluation for acute cholecystitis...

The treatment of choice of vein of Galen aneurysmal malformation (VGAM) involves endovascular procedures that can be difficult to perform in high-flow fistulas. We describe the use of rapid ventricular pacing (RVP), a well-known cardiologic technique, to safely treat a high-flow fistula in an infant with VGAM.

A 12-year-old boy with a right atrium endocardial mass was initially diagnosed as having Lemierre's syndrome on the basis of previous mastoiditis and jugular vein and cerebral venous thrombosis. Lack of response to antibiotics, persistent high fever with chills, acute-phase reactants, and peripheral arterial pseudoaneurysms made us reconsider the diagnosis. Only after the late appearance of radiological pulmonary lesions and recognition of pulmonary artery aneurysms, Hughes-Stovin syndrome was diagnosed. Hughes-Stovin syndrome is an exceedingly rare vasculitis, especially in childhood, consisting of multiple pulmonary artery aneurysms and deep venous thromboses...

: Venous aneurysms are rare lesions and of little significance in every day clinical practice. While in many cases asymptomatic they can be the cause of great morbidity due to thrombosis and subsequent possibility of pulmonary embolism. Venous aneurysms are classified in deep and superficial according to affected vein. The diagnosis is based mainly on Doppler ultrasound, while computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and venography provide more details. Treatment of venous aneurysms should be surgical...

Congenital brachial artery true aneurysms are exceedingly rare. Most are pseudoaneurysms secondary to trauma or infection. We report a boy aged 2 years who presented with painless, pulsatile swelling on the medial aspect of the right arm, 4 cm above the elbow joint that had been present since birth. Spiral CT angiography showed a fusiform aneurysm of the distal right brachial artery with a peripheral crescent-shaped thrombus. Distal arteries were normally opacified. There was no evidence of abnormal dilation or stenosis in any other artery...

BACKGROUND: Antegrade cerebral perfusion in aortic surgery is a well-established brain protection method. Open distal anastomosis during aortic surgery has some well-known advantages. Antegrade cerebral perfusion allows repair to some extent of the aortic arch, even in isolated ascending aortic aneurysm. The present study aims to investigate the adequacy of contralateral perfusion with novel oxidative stress parameters during unilateral antegrade cerebral perfusion. METHOD: The study included 30 consecutive patients undergoing thoracic aortic surgery with unilateral antegrade cerebral perfusion (uACP) under moderate hypothermia (28° C)...
