In the age of stent deployment after balloon angioplasty. In stent restenosis (ISR) has become a major concern. Various coronary interventional measures and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) has employed to manage the ISR. Although CABG seems to offer advantages over other coronary intervention methods in patients with multi vessel ISR; lack of appropriate graftable vessels often make the surgery difficult and end up with incomplete revascularization. Coronary endarterectomy with stent removal mitigated some of the limitations of CABG but initial results of this surgical measure were not favorable...

Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is a widely accepted and used technique for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). However, it comes with a unique set of complications, two of the rarer being infection and aorto-enteric fistula formation. Due to the infrequency of the situation, there are currently no guidelines for their management. A 75-year-old male presented with vague abdominal pain and fevers. He was diagnosed with an infected abdominal aortic EVAR stent graft on computer tomography imaging...

INTRODUCTION: A 75-year-old male patient with significant cardiopulmonary comorbidity presented with a 70-mm left femoral pseudoaneurysm 6 years after aortobifemoral bypass (and prior femoral endarterectomy). REPORT: As the left superficial femoral artery was occluded, an ilioprofunda endobypass was undertaken following extraperitoneal exposure of the left limb of the bypass graft with subsequent deployment of four Viabahn endoprostheses via the left limb into the proximal left deep femoral artery with successful exclusion of the pseudoaneurysm...

BACKGROUND: Tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) is a rare but life-threatening complication after esophagectomy. It has a high mortality rate and often leads to severe aspiration pneumonia. Various types of surgical repair procedures have been reported, but the optimal management of TEF is challenging and controversial. Treatment should be individualized to each patient. CASE PRESENTATION: A 66-year-old female underwent transthoracic esophagectomy with gastric tube reconstruction and an intrathoracic anastomosis for esophageal cancer...

The arteriovenous graft (AVG) is one of the major types of permanent vascular access used to provide hemodialysis. Complications encountered with AVG use include stenosis, infection, thrombosis, and pseudoaneurysm formation. Venous outflow stenosis along with frequent needle cannulation at the same site can lead to breakdown of the graft material, resulting in pseudoaneurysm formation. In the following case, we illustrate common management principles used to treat pseudoaneurysms. While stent-grafts have been utilized for pseudoaneurysm repair, stent-graft usage is not always optimal...

BACKGROUND: Subclavian and axillary artery injuries are uncommon. In addition to many open vascular repairs, endovascular techniques are used for definitive repair or vascular control of these anatomically challenging injuries. The aim of this study was to determine the relative roles of endovascular and open techniques in the management of subclavian and axillary artery injuries comparing hospital outcomes, and long-term limb viability. METHODS: A multicenter, retrospective review of patients with subclavian or axillary artery injuries from 1/1/2004-12/31/2014 was completed at 11 participating Western Trauma Association institutions...

BACKGROUND: Various conduits and stent-mounted valves are used as pulmonary valve graft tissues for right ventricular outflow tract reconstruction with good hemodynamic results. Valve replacement carries an increased risk of infective endocarditis (IE). Recent observations have increased awareness of the risk of IE after transcatheter implantation of a stent-mounted bovine jugular vein valve. This study focused on the susceptibility of graft tissue surfaces to bacterial adherence as a potential risk factor for subsequent IE...

BACKGROUND: There is no international consensus regarding the optimum management of infected aortae (mycotic aneurysms, infected aortic grafts). Neoaortoiliac reconstruction has advantages over extra-anatomical bypass grafting; however, the use of autologous vein is associated with venous hypertension and compartment syndrome, alternatively cadaveric homografts are associated with high rates of perianastomotic hemorrhage, limb occlusion, and pseudoaneurysm. Arterial repair using xenoprosthetic patches is associated with lower infection rates compared to the use of prosthetic material...

BACKGROUND: Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAAs) is in rapid expansion due to its minimal invasiveness. However, TEVAR for an arch aneurysm with a straight stent graft needs surgical reconstruction for supra-aortic vessels. A branched stent graft pioneered by Inoue (branched Inoue Stent Graft [ISG]) has been expected to resolve this problem, but its utility remains to be established in the real clinical setting. This study evaluated the long-term clinical outcome of branched ISGs for TAAs...

Although the use of biomedical devices in hospital-based care is inevitable, unfortunately, it is also one of the leading causes of the nosocomial infections, and thus demands development of novel antimicrobial materials for medical device fabrication. In the current study, a multi-defense mechanism against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria is demonstrated by combining a nitric oxide (NO) releasing agent with a quaternary ammonium antimicrobial that can be covalently grafted to medical devices. Antibacterial polymeric composites were fabricated by incorporating an NO donor, S-nitroso-N-acetyl-penicillamine (SNAP) in CarboSil® polymer and top coated with surface immobilized benzophenone based quaternary ammonium antimicrobial (BPAM) small molecule...

INTRODUCTION: Infected femoral pseudoaneurysms are a common presentation in intravenous drug users with little consensus as to the optimum management of these patients. Whilst emergency revascularisation options are available, excision and ligation of the femoral artery remains the most common operative intervention but risks leaving the patient with critical ischaemia or intermittent claudication. This case series reviewed the outcomes of 4 patients who underwent excision-ligation without revascularisation of an infected femoral pseudoaneurysm at a district general hospital...

Dacron grafts are frequently used during surgical revascularization procedures. Complications including graft thrombosis and infection are well known; however, aneurysm formation is extremely rare. In this report, we describe dilatation of a Dacron graft detected four years after aortobifemoral bypass procedure in a 50-year-old male patient who was treated with endovascular stent grafting.

Aortoesophageal (AEF) and aortobronchial fistula (ABF) after thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) are rare complications with catastrophic consequences without treatment. In this case report, we presented a patient with AEF and ABF after TEVAR successfully treated with endograft explantation and replaced by Dacron graft followed by esophagectomy and left principal bronchus repairing. We report a patient with AEF and ABF after TEVAR who was evaluated due to dysphagia and chest pain followed by hematemesis and hemoptysis...

Oesophageal fistulae after thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair (TEVAR) for thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) have been reported, although the causes are unknown. One hypothesis is that the structural configuration of the aortic aneurysm, as it protrudes towards the oesophagus, may affect oesophageal fistula formation. The pathological findings of an oesophageal fistula following TEVAR are reviewed here. This report presents the case of a 68-year-old man with a stent graft-related oesophageal fistula after TEVAR for TAA...

Thoracic endovascular aortic repair( TEVAR) for thoracic aortic aneurysm has been established as a 1st-line therapy, especially in high-risk cases, with device improvements and the appearance of various procedures, but there are still cases of anatomical adaptation. On the other hand, several countermeasures have been developed, but there are no commercially available devices for fenestrated or branched stent grafts in Japan. Moreover, complications such as cerebral infarction, organ ischemia and bypass occlusion and infection are pointed out in popular debranch TEVAR...
