OBJECTIVE: Reported are initial 12-month outcomes of patients with chronic symptomatic aortic dissection managed by the Streamliner Multilayer Flow Modulator (SMFM; Cardiatis, Isnes, Belgium). Primary end points were freedom from rupture- and aortic-related death, and reduction in false lumen index. Secondary end points were patency of great vessels and visceral branches, and freedom of stroke, paraplegia, and renal failure. METHODS: Out of 876 SMFM implanted globally, we have knowledge of 542...

Background. Intravesicular Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) is an effective adjunctive therapy for superficial bladder cancer that has been shown to delay recurrence and progression of disease. Serious side effects are relatively rare but are difficult to diagnosis and commonly overlooked. Case Presentation. We report the case of a patient who was found to have mycotic aortic aneurysms secondary to treatment with BCG after a prolonged course with multiple intervening hospitalizations. Conclusion. Through this report, we discuss our present understanding of BCG infection following treatment and review the literature regarding this particular rare manifestation...

We report a case of ruptured mycotic thoracic aortic aneurysm treated with a pedicled latissimus dorsi flap after stent-graft implantation. The patient was a 64-year-old woman with diabetes mellitus that had developed septicemia as a result of pyelonephritis and a perinephric abscess. The patient required emergency stent-graft implantation due to rupture of an infected thoracic aortic aneurysm on hospital day 10. On hospital day 19, the abscess cavity was debrided and irrigated, and a pedicled latissimus dorsi flap was created...

Intracranial infectious aneurysm (IIA) is a rare form of cerebrovascular malformation for which obliteration may be undertaken after rupture or non-response to targeted antibiotic therapy. We discuss the case of a 19-year-old man who presented with acute neurologic decline (Glasgow Coma Scale of 8) and endocarditis. CT images demonstrated subarachnoid haemorrhage, hydrocephalus and a mycotic aneurysm on the left posterior cerebral artery. Conservative management was initially decided due to the high risk of stroke and hemianopia...

Mycotic aneurysms and prosthetic graft infections are traditionally treated with excision of the infected tissue or graft, often requiring anatomical or extra-anatomical bypass, carrying significant morbidity and mortality. Currently, the role of endovascular repair without excision in this setting has yet to be defined. We present two case scenarios whereby mycotic pseudoaneurysms were successfully treated with endovascular stent graft coverage, and to present an in-depth review of endovascular in-situ revascularziation in the treatment of arterial and graft infections...

Aneurysms of the coronary arteries are rare and mycotic coronary aneurysms are even rarer. We report a unique, yet unfortunately autopsy-proven fatal case of a ruptured atherosclerotic mycotic aneurysm of the right coronary artery with streptococcus pneumoniae in a non-immunocompromised patient resulting in cor tamponade and death.

BACKGROUND: Invasive orbital apex aspergillosis (IOAA) is an aggressive form of aspergillus infection that usually affects immunocompromised patients. It can cause orbital apex syndrome and, if not treated promptly, may progress rapidly causing fatal complications. Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) secondary to ruptured mycotic aneurysms is a very rare complication of invasive aspergillosis. We aim to describe our management and the outcome of six immunocompetent patients with IOAA with subsequent SAH secondary to ruptured mycotic aneurysms...

BACKGROUND: Mycotic aneurysms are a complication of infective endocarditis. Infection of left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) may lead to bacteremia and fever causing complications similar to those seen in patients with prosthetic valve endocarditis. Intracranial mycotic aneurysms are rare, and their presence is signaled by the development of subarachnoid hemorrhage in the setting of bacteremia and aneurysms located distal to the circle of Willis. CASE PRESENTATION: We present the case of a patient with a LVAD presenting with headache who is found to have an intracranial mycotic aneurysm through computed tomography angiography of the head...

BACKGROUND: Infectious intracranial aneurysms (IIAs) are rare entities and are often associated with septic embolus from infectious endocarditis. They may develop rapidly and carry a higher risk of rupture and mortality compared to noninfectious aneurysms. However, the development and rupture of an IIA within 48h in a patient with septic infarction patient is exceedingly rare. CASE DESCRIPTION: In this report, we describe a 25-year-old male who presented with left-sided hemiparesis and dysarthria from septic embolus to the right middle cerebral artery...

We report a unique case of neonatal mycotic internal iliac artery aneurysm managed non-operatively. The child had multifocal osteomyelitis and no history of umbilical artery catheterisation. The aneurysm was regularly scanned and monitored until its obliteration by thrombus 17 days after initial detection. Contingency plans for either interventional radiological coiling or open surgical repair were in place had the aneurysm grown or the child deteriorated.

BACKGROUND: Ruptured mycotic aneurysm in the setting of cardiac failure and cerebral vasospasm presents unique management challenges. CASE DESCRIPTION: A patient with a ruptured mycotic aneurysm with subarachnoid hemorrhage, cerebral vasospasm, and endocarditis with heart failure successfully underwent craniotomy, neuroendovascular treatment, and cardiopulmonary bypass for mitral valve replacement while in cerebral vasospasm. This case highlights clinical management strategies for a patient with a ruptured mycotic aneurysm, subarachnoid hemorrhage, cerebral vasospasm, endocarditis, and heart failure...

BACKGROUND: Adjuvant therapy with bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG), a live attenuated strain of Mycobacterium bovis, has become the treatment of choice for low-risk superficial bladder carcinoma following transurethral resection of the bladder. Complications following vesical BCG instillations are uncommon but, in some cases, severe side-effects can occur such as sepsis or mycotic aneurysm. Besides usual laboratory techniques used for the diagnosis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC) infections (smear microscopy and cultures), commercial immunochromatographic assays detecting MBP64, a 24 kDa M...

We present the first and only case, reported in literature, of a 67-years-old man with a mycotic aneurysm (MA) of the left posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA), caused by group B Streptococcus, that we surgically treated, performing neck aneurysm clipping, preserving patency of parent vessel. Moreover the peculiarity of this case is represented by the fact that the MA is originated from a tooth abscess, treated about two years before. To date, there have been only 10 cases of association between MA with either tooth pathologies or dental surgical procedures and our case is the only one originating from PICA...

Surgical treatment of mycotic aneurysm of the thoracic aorta is challenging because contamination from surrounding tissues may occur even after complete debridement with a prosthetic graft replacement of the aneurysm. This study describes the simple but very useful technique of using a pericardial fat flap to protect the prosthetic graft from reinfection.

A mycotic aneurysm that also involves the visceral arteries is a life-threatening condition. Surgical management typically consists of débridement and in situ repair with a Dacron graft and reimplantation of the involved visceral branches. We report a rare case of a mycotic saccular thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm involving the celiac artery, with Streptococcus pneumoniae as the responsible organism. Successful repair of the aneurysm and concomitant revascularization of the celiac artery were achieved.

An 85-year-old man complained of a 2-month history of pain on the left side of his face. Brain computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging/magnetic resonance angiography did not clearly show any intracranial abnormality and only showed fluid effusion in his left sphenoid sinus. Filamentous fungi were detected from the left sphenoid sinus specimen. The isolate was Scedosporium apiospermum. He was empirically treated with voriconazole, to which the isolate was susceptible. His consciousness decreased rapidly...
