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: 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...

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 pediatric hepatobiliary unit (1985-2015). Forty-five children with trisomy 21 were identified; 7 (15%) had a defined CVMs (4 girls). 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 venovenous anomaly. This included portocaval shunt and patent ductus venosus (n = 2)...

Highlight Kurtcehajic and colleagues present a rare case of congenital portal vein aneurysm (PVA) with biliopathy. Symptoms associated with PVA occur in less than 10% of cases. Imaging modalities showed the PVA partially compressing the common and right hepatic ducts. Conservative treatment markedly lowered bilirubin levels and relieved the abdominal pain.

Hepatic artery aneurysms are rare, but potentially life-threatening vascular pathologies. They are usually discovered incidentally during imaging diagnostics of different pathologies. The study presented a rare case of hepatic artery pseudoaneurym with a fistula to the left branch of the portal vein.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Splenic artery aneurysm (SAA) rarely occurs in the general population. Its increased incidence has been reported in cirrhosis. The aim of this retrospective study was to identify prevalence and predictive factor development of SAA in patients with cirrhosis. METHODS: All patients with cirrhosis who were treated in our clinics between 2010 and 2014 were included in the study. Demographic features and clinical and laboratory findings were reviewed...

The simultaneous occurrence of an abdominal aortic aneurysm and liver cirrhosis needing surgical treatment is extremely rare. There is still controversy regarding the timing of abdominal aortic aneurysm repair and liver transplantation and regarding optimal treatment of the aneurysm. Here, we describe a 70-year-old white male patient who presented with end-stage liver disease secondary to chronic hepatitis C with a solitary hepatocellular carcinoma measuring 5.5 cm in diameter in the right liver lobe. A pretransplant work-up resulted in discovery of a 6...

Background. Splenic artery aneurysm is the most common type of visceral aneurysms. They are usually asymptomatic and have a potential for rupture and therefore life-threatening hemorrhage. It is rare for them to cause sinistral portal hypertension. Case Report. A 23-year-old female patient presented to our clinic with gastric varices, splenomegaly, pancytopenia, and normal liver functions. She was thus diagnosed with left-sided portal hypertension. Radiologic evaluation showed splenomegaly, splenic vein obstruction, and multiple aneurysms along the splenic artery ranging from 2...

Vitelline veins are a pair of embryonic structures. The veins develop the portal vein system. Serious problems occur if the vitelline vein does not regress and becomes an aneurysm. Thrombus formation in the vitelline vein aneurysm could lead to portal vein thrombosis and portal hypertension unless promptly and correctly treated. Though vitelline vein aneurysm is an extremely rare anomaly, it rapidly progresses to portal vein thrombosis that requires prompt diagnosis and treatment. We reported a case of neonatal vitelline vein aneurysm and thrombosis that was cured by prompt operation...

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a colorless, odorless gas which occurs naturally in the atmosphere and human body. With the advent of digital subtraction angiography, the gas has been used as a safe and useful alternative contrast agent in both arteriography and venography. Because of its lack of renal toxicity and allergic potential, CO2 is a preferred contrast agent in patients with renal failure or contrast allergy, and particularly in patients who require large volumes of contrast medium for complex endovascular procedures...

OBJECTIVE: Management of splenorenal shunt (SRS) during whole liver transplantation is still controversial. Splenectomy (SP) permits its radical removal, at the price of a specific related morbidity. Left renal vein ligation (LRVL) performs a downstream ligation with potential renal repercussions. This study aimed to compare these techniques regarding portal revascularization and postoperative outcomes. METHODS: From 1994 to 2012, 22 SPs and 7 LRVLs were performed for large SRS (>1 cm) management...

Portal vein aneurysm is an unusual vascular dilatation of the portal vein, which was first described by Barzilai and Kleckner in 1956 and since then less than 200 cases have been reported. The aim of this article is to provide an overview of the international literature to better clarify various aspects of this rare nosological entity and provide clear evidence-based summary, when available, of the clinical and surgical management. A systematic literature search of the Pubmed database was performed for all articles related to portal vein aneurysm...

BACKGROUND: Extrahepatic portal venous aneurysms (PVAs) are rare, and the pathogenesis is not fully understood. The optimum management of these patients is unknown. METHODS: Consecutive patients with PVA were identified over an 18-year period (1992-2010). A retrospective review was conducted. Clinical presentation, modality of diagnosis, surgical treatment, 30-day morbidity and mortality, and follow-up are reported. RESULTS: Four patients were identified who underwent surgical management of an extrahepatic PVA...

A 65-year-old woman with Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) presented with right upper quadrant pain. A computed tomography (CT) scan showed a saccular aneurysm located at the extrahepatic portal vein main branch measuring 3.2 cm in height and 2.5 cm × 2.4 cm in diameter. The aneurysm was thought to be associated with BCS as there was no preceding history of trauma and it had not been present on Doppler ultrasound examination performed 3 years previously. Because of increasing pain and concern for complications due to aneurysm size, the decision was made to relieve the hepatic venous outflow obstruction...

AIM: To investigate contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) findings in portal venous system aneurysms (PVSAs). METHODS: In this multi-center, retrospective, case series study, we evaluated CEUS features of seven cases of PVSAs that were found incidentally on conventional ultrasound in the period 2007-2013. Three Ultrasound Centers were involved (Chieti, Italy, Bad Mergentheim, Germany, and Cluj-Napoca, Romania). All patients underwent CEUS with Sonovue(®) (Bracco, Milan, Italy) at a standard dose of 2...

REVIEW
Yong-Song Guan, Ying Hu
Partial splenic embolization (PSE) is one of the intra-arterial therapeutic approaches of diseases. With the development of interventional radiology, the applications of PSE in clinical practice are greatly extended, while various materials are developed for embolization use. Common indications of PSE include hypersplenism with portal hypertension, hereditary spherocytosis, thalassemia, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, splenic trauma, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, splenic hemangioma, and liver cancer. It is also performed to exclude splenic artery aneurysms from the parent vessel lumen and prevent aneurysm rupture, to treat splenic artery steal syndrome and improve liver perfusion in liver transplant recipients, and to administer targeted treatment to areas of neoplastic disease in the splenic parenchyma...
