While cocaine use is thought to be associated with aneurysmal rupture, it is not known whether heroin use increases the risk of rupture in patients with non-mycotic saccular aneurysms. Our goal was to investigate the association between heroin and cocaine use and the rupture of saccular non-mycotic aneurysms. The medical records of 4701 patients with 6411 intracranial aneurysms, including 1201 prospective patients, diagnosed at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital between 1990 and 2016 were reviewed and analyzed...

Pseudoaneurysms occur due to malformations in arterial wall uniformity, leading to blood collection between the outer arterial layers and resultant outpouching of the vessel. Unlike true aneurysms, pseudoaneurysms do not involve all layers of the blood vessel. Mycotic pseudoaneurysms can occur after associated vessel adventitia infection, leading to transmural dissection. Here we present a case of a 78-year-old man with a history of chronic otitis externa and osteomyelitis who presented with increasing right ear pain with bloody discharge and associated headache...

A 78-year-old man who had undergone aortic valve and ascending aorta replacements presented with fever and was referred to our hospital. Blood culture revealed Gram-positive cocci, thus antibiotic therapy was started. Brain magnetic resonance imaging showed fresh cerebral infarction without cerebral haemorrhage or mycotic aneurysm. Transoesophageal echocardiogram revealed a vegetation that was attached to the right coronary cusp. The patient underwent successful aortic valve neocuspidization using glutaraldehyde-treated bovine pericardium...

A 19-year-old man with mitral valve endocarditis and prolapse, intracerebral and intracerebellar hematoma, and a mycotic cerebral aneurysm underwent emergency mitral valve replacement during minimal cardiopulmonary bypass (total priming volume, 800 mL; autologous retropriming, activated clotting time <300 seconds) 1 day after undergoing endovascular coil embolization of the aneurysm. Postoperatively, there were no extensions of the intracerebral and intracerebellar hematoma. After intensive rehabilitation therapy, the patient recovered fully except for residual bilateral claudication because of preoperative bilateral embolism to both superficial femoral arteries...

  An increasing number of invasive infections due to Streptococcus agalactiae in non-pregnant adults have been reported. We report a case of infective endocarditis complicated by intraventricular abscesses, pericarditis, and mycotic aneurysm due to S. agalactiae belonging to ST681 with a capsular serotype VI in a diabetic woman. The patient also had a myocardial infarction and was treated with percutaneous coronary intervention, pericardiocentesis, and 6 weeks of antibiotic treatment. Invasive infections due to serotype VI S...

The term "mycotic aneurysm" was first used by Osler in 1882 to describe a mushroom-shaped aneurysm in subacute bacterial endocarditis. Mycotic aneurysms account for only 2.6% of all aneurysms of the aorta. Rarer still are anaerobic infections secondary to organisms such as Clostridium septicum, which results in emphysematous aortitis. The vast majority of emphysematous aortic infections occur as a result of instrumentation; however, in this case we present an infection de novo. A 75-year-old male presented with a 2-week history of progressive fatigue and chest pain that then developed into constitutional symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Endovascular repair for mycotic aortic aneurysm (MAA) is a less invasive alternative to open surgery, although the placement of a stent graft in an infected environment remains controversial. In this study, we developed hybrid biodegradable, vancomycin-eluting, nanofiber-loaded endovascular prostheses and evaluated antibiotic release from the endovascular prostheses both in vitro and in vivo. METHODS: Poly(D,L)-lactide-co-glycolide and vancomycin were dissolved in 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoro-2-propanol...

Pneumococcal mycotic aneurysms are rare and associated with significant mortality and morbidity. Early intravenous antibiotic therapy and surgical intervention is the mainstay of treatment. Pneumococci frequently autolyze in blood cultures, making microbiological diagnosis challenging. We present the case of a man in his mid 70s with multiple thoracoabdominal mycotic aneurysms. Surgery was performed to a threatening saccular aortic arch aneurysm. Samples were sent for microbiological analysis and all were culture negative...

The surgical outcomes in patients with mycotic aortic aneurysm are still poor. In situ reconstruction and extra-anatomical bypass are the 2 main surgical options used in these patients, both of which have postoperative complications: recurrence of infection and aortic stump blowout, respectively. We performed in situ reconstruction in 25 consecutive patients with mycotic abdominal aortic aneurysms together with extended debridement using an irrigation device, omental flap coverage, rifampicin-soaked prosthetic graft, and sufficient antibiotics administration...

Mycotic aneurysm of the aorta is a rare, but life-threatening pathology. In recent years, endovascular stent graft placement has been introduced as an effective alternative for treating infected aortic aneurysms. A 64-year-old woman with a history of paraplegia due to spinal cord injury was referred to our institute with fever and blood-tinged sputum. Computed tomography (CT) scan showed an 11-cm pseudoaneurysm arising from the proximal descending aorta, which was normal 1 month ago at the previous CT scan...

Purpose: A mycotic aneurysm is an uncommon disease associated with a high mortality rate when managed surgically. This study reviewed our experiences in the surgical management of mycotic aortic aneurysms. Methods: In total, 26 patients who underwent surgery for a mycotic aneurysm were retrospectively reviewed. The mycotic aneurysms involved the thoracic aorta in 9 patients, the thoracoabdominal aorta in 4 patients, and the abdominal aorta in 13 patients. An overt aortic rupture in the mediastinum or retroperitoneal space was detected in 4 patients...

Introduction.Listeria monocytogenes is a rare etiology of infectious endocarditis with only 30 cases of prosthetic valve and about twice as many native valve infections described in the literature. We describe an unusual presentation of an endovascular embolic phenomenon with associated lower extremity mycotic aneurysm due to Listeria monocytogenes prosthetic aortic valve and aortic endograft infection. Case presentation. This is a case of an elderly gentleman with prior history of bioprosthetic aortic valve placement and aortic arch repair who was admitted with several weeks of constitutional symptoms and left lower leg pain...

From March 2014 to December 2016, a cluster of 13 cases of Campylobacter fetus intestinal and extraintestinal infections, including 2 patients with an aortic mycotic aneurysm, caused significant morbidity. The cluster likely resulted from sexual transmission between men having sex with men living in the greater Montreal area, Quebec, Canada.

BACKGROUND: The treatment of acute ischemic stroke with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) has become the mainstay of treatment, but its use carries a risk of subsequent intracranial hemorrhage (ICH). Guidelines have been developed to aid in the selection of the appropriate candidates to treat with rtPA to reduce this risk. We present a case of a stroke patient who was an appropriate candidate and was treated with rtPA who experienced a fatal subarachnoid hemorrhage due to a ruptured mycotic aneurysm (MA)...

We present a case of a 20-year-old Malay man with underlying tuberculous (TB) lymphadenitis who presented with shortness of breath and found to have submitral left ventricular aneurysm (SLVA). SLVA is well recognised but rare. Incidence of SLVA in Malay has never been documented. This is the first reported case of SLVA in Malays with concomitant thoracic aorta mycotic aneurysm. TB has been reported to be associated with SLVA. Treatment is either surgical or conservative. Imaging is required for diagnosis and preoperative assessment...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this paper is to provide recent insights in management of neurologic complications of left-sided infective endocarditis (IE). RECENT FINDINGS: Cerebral lesions observed in IE patients are thought to involve synergistic pathophysiological mechanisms including thromboembolism, sepsis, meningitis, and small-vessel cerebral vasculitis. Brain MRI represents a major tool for the detection of asymptomatic events occurring in the majority of patients...

Mycotic aneurysm after bacteremia is a rare diagnosis in children and adolescents. We report the case of a previously healthy adolescent who presented with chest pain and fever and who developed a mycotic aneurysm of the aorta after contracting community-acquired, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Early recognition of widening of the patient's superior mediastinum, noted during a comparison of the patient's initial and follow-up chest radiographs, prompted computed tomographic angiography of the chest and led to a timely diagnosis, rapid surgical intervention, and a good clinical outcome...
