The number of patients in dialysis increases every year. In this review, we will evaluate the role of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) according to patency of arteriovenous fistula and grafts. The main indication of PΤΑ is stenosis > 50% or obstruction of the vascular lumen of an arteriovenous fistula and graft. It is usually performed under local anesthesia. The infection rate is as low as the number of complications. Fistula can be used in dialysis in the same day without the need for a central venous catheter...

Introduction: Hybrid aortic arch repair for the treatment of aorto-bronchial fistulas has been suggested as a safe alternative to open repair. However, surgical morbidity and mortality are still significant and re-intervention is sometimes inevitable. Report: Successful rescue by a hybrid approach is reported in a 76 year old woman who was transferred from another centre with recurrent episodes of left hemiplegia shortly after debranching of the supra-aortic vessels and thoracic aortic stent grafting for an aorto-bronchial fistula associated with a true aneurysm at the level of origin of the left subclavian artery...

We describe a case of an infected popliteal artery stent with septic emboli presenting 6 years after peripheral vascular intervention for intermittent claudication. Management included resection of the stent and popliteal artery and revascularization by femoral-popliteal bypass with autogenous vein. This case demonstrates that peripheral stent infections can develop years after intervention. We performed an English language PUBMED literature review of arterial peripheral vascular stent infections on using the search term, "Non-coronary stent or stent graft infection from 1966 to present...

OBJECTIVE: Aortic stent-graft infection is rare, but remains one of the most challenging and threatening complications. This systematic review aimed to identify the clinical features, treatment and outcomes of endograft infection after abdominal endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) and thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). METHODS: A systematic literature review of all published literature from January 1991 to September 2016 on stent-graft infection was performed under the instruction of Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA)...

BACKGROUND: Mycotic aneurysm is an uncommon disease which could be fatal without appropriate treatment. Although standard therapy for mycotic aneurysms consists of resection of the infected aorta and in situ graft replacement, some treat with endovascular stent-grafting because patients may not tolerate graft replacement due to underlying diseases. There are 6 more reported cases of mycotic aneurysm caused by Edwardsiella tarda. With the exception of our case, all underwent resection and debridement of the infected aorta or vascular prosthesis...

INTRODUCTION: Mycotic pseudoaneurysm has traditionally been repaired surgically with excision of the infected artery and revascularization via extra-anatomical or in situ bypass. There have been reports of endovascular repair for high-risk patients for formal surgical repair. We present a case of a patient with 3 large pseudoaneurysms arising from the right subclavian artery, descending thoracic aorta, and right popliteal artery treated with endovascular and hybrid intervention. CASE: A 74-year-old male with remote history of coronary artery bypass graft and recent sternoclavicular joint abscess developed 3 concurrent pseudoaneurysms arising from the right subclavian artery, distal descending thoracic aorta, and right popliteal artery...

INTRODUCTION: Carotid blowout syndrome (CBS) is a life threatening complication associated with head and neck cancers (HNC) and its treatment. The mortality rate was reported to range from 3% to over 50% in the literature. Direct surgical repair of the ruptured internal carotid artery is often not technically possible due to the difficult anatomy and underlying poor co-morbid status. Endovascular techniques such as coil embolization and stent grafting offer an alternative to surgical ligation with better patient outcomes...

Presented herein is a review of publications of foreign authors on the problem of infectious complications after endoprosthetic repair of the thoracic aorta. The problem discussed is of current importance, however in the Russian literature it is covered insufficiently. The article contains the data on frequency, terms and possible causes of the development of complications, also discussing the problems of diagnosis. The authors demonstrate extreme danger of infection of an aortic stent graft, difficulty of early diagnosis and mostly unsatisfactory therapeutic outcomes...

REVIEW

Open surgical repair has been the gold standard for thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) repair for more than 6 decades, but 2 additional options have emerged: total endovascular TAAA repair and a hybrid approach that combines open and endovascular repair. Despite the optimism for an endovascular approach, long-term results for these repairs are still lacking. Some of the issues with this emerging technology include the risk of paraplegia after extensive endovascular repair, the need for multiple reinterventions, continuous stent-graft surveillance, endograft branch stenosis, as well as the significant learning curve...

OBJECTIVE: Very few reports have previously described spondylodiscitis as a potential complication of endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). We present to our knowledge the first case series of spondylodiscitis following EVAR based on our institution's experience over an 11-year period. Particular attention is paid to the key imaging features and challenges encountered when performing spinal imaging in this complex patient group. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Of 1,847 patients who underwent EVAR at our institution between January 2006 and January 2017, a total of 9 patients were identified with imaging features of spondylodiscitis (0...

OBJECTIVE: A suitable ipsilateral great saphenous vein (GSV) autograft is widely considered the best material for arterial reconstruction of a popliteal artery aneurysm (PAA). There are, however, cases in which such a GSV is absent, diseased, or of too small diameter for this use. Alternatives to GSV are synthetic conduits, but with a reduced long-term patency, in particular for infragenicular bypass; other venous autografts of marginal use; and stent grafts still in the first stages of their evaluation...

INTRODUCTION: Ureter stenosis in renal transplantation patients is a relatively frequent complication that negatively conditions graft evolution. The use of ureteral stents is a valid treatment alternative to the use of double-J catheters in patients for whom surgery is not contemplated or after surgical recurrence. We present our initial experience with five patients treated using this technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We describe a total of five patients with ureteral stenosis after renal transplantation who were treated using ureteral stent model UVENTA (Taewoong Medical, Seoul, Korea) in our center...

Pseudoaneurysm in Salmonella infection is a rare complication of lupus. We describe a 51-year-old woman with lupus who suffered from swelling and painful sensation of right lower limbs. The Doppler ultrasound study revealed a large pseudoaneurysm of right superficial femoral artery and the tissue culture was Salmonella group D. Surgical repair with stent grafting was performed successfully. This vascular complication with Salmonella infection has not been previously described in lupus.

BACKGROUND: With the increasing use of endovascular aortic repair, secondary interventions after aortic stent grafting remain a concern. We retrospectively reviewed open conversion cases with complications following endovascular abdominal aortic repair (EVAR). METHODS: EVAR due to infra-renal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) was performed in 566 patients between January 1994 and May 2015. A retrospective review of EVAR requiring late open conversion (>1 month after implant) was conducted...

One of the most catastrophic complications of kidney transplantation is non-traumatic delayed bleeding caused by arterial dissection and pseudoaneurysm, endangering the survival of the graft and the patient. Herein, we discuss the management of this condition in 3 cases. The patients included 2 men, 30 and 47 years old, and a 33-year-old woman, who developed a massive hemorrhage in the second week after kidney transplant. All our patients were diabetic for more than 5 years. Massive hemorrhage occurred in the second week without any trauma or precipitating factor...
