Bertrand Vedrine, Franck Durieux
A 7-week-old, 1.045kg female beagle dog was referred to investigate a supposed vascular ring anomaly. Cone beam computed tomography with contrast enhanced arterial phase accomplished by a rapid manual intravenous injection of iodinated agent during the scanning process revealed a persistent right aortic arch and an aberrant left subclavian artery that compressed dorsally the esophagus in the cranial mediastinum. Third left intercostal thoracotomy was performed to transect the left subclavian artery. This is the first description of a vascular ring anomaly that was diagnosed with a cone beam computed tomography in veterinary medicine...

The aim of this study was to reveal the external features of the bronchial artery (BA) system, so as to provide morphological basis for clinic. The BAs in 48 adult cadavers were dissected and analyzed. The number of BAs in 48 cases was 118. The incidence of BA arising from thoracic aorta, right posterior intercostal artery, and right subclavian artery was 69.49, 27.12, and 3.39%, respectively. The origin of BAs in individual specimen might be single, two, or all of them, respectively. According to the different origin and/or origins of BAs, it could be divided into five categories...

BACKGROUND: We present the cases of 2 patients with invasive thyroid cancer, who underwent reconstructive surgery using a deltopectoral flap. Although the overall rate of extrathyroidal extension in patients with thyroid cancer is quite low, skin invasion is the most common pattern observed. Reconstructive surgery, involving local skin flaps, is required in these patients. The deltopectoral flap relies on the blood supply from intercostal perforators of the internal thoracic artery and usually requires skin grafting to the donor site...

INTRODUCTION: The arterial basket of the conus medullaris is one of several anastomoses between the anterior and posterior spinal arteries. The anatomy of this structure has attracted little attention. This work sought to investigate its configuration in human spinal cords. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Spinal cords from male and female cadavers (n=32) were injected with colored latex through the intercostal, lumbar, medial sacral and the posterior trunks of the hypogastric arteries...

Various lung ultrasound (LUS) scanning modalities have been proposed for the detection of B-lines, also referred to as ultrasound lung comets, which are an important indication of extravascular lung water at rest and after exercise stress echo (ESE). The aim of our study was to assess the lung water spatial distribution (comet map) at rest and after ESE. We performed LUS at rest and immediately after semi-supine ESE in 135 patients (45 women, 90 men; age 62 ± 12 y, resting left ventricular ejection fraction = 41 ± 13%) with known or suspected heart failure or coronary artery disease...

PURPOSE: Preservation of intercostal arteries during thoracic aortic procedures reduces the risk of post-operative paraparesis. The origins of the intercostal arteries are visible on pre-operative computed tomography angiography (CTA), but rarely on intra-operative angiography. The purpose of this report is to suggest an image fusion technique for intra-operative localisation of the intercostal arteries during thoracic endovascular repair (TEVAR). TECHNIQUE: The ostia of the intercostal arteries are identified and manually marked with rings on the pre-operative CTA...

Intercostal artery aneurysms (ICAA) are very rare vascular complication of coarctation. The most cases are asymptomatic and could be found incidentally during thoracotomy for others vascular pathology or may present with fatal problems such as rupture that is leading to bleeding and hypovolemic shock. Intercostal artery aneurysm most commonly accompanies with neurofibromatosis, aortic coarctation, or in chest trauma. We report a 10-year-old girl who complained of lower extremities pain and hypertension for a few months...

BACKGROUND: N-butyl 2-cyanoacrylate (NBCA) remains the standard embolic agent for spinal dural arteriovenous fistula (SDAVF) treatment. Treatment of SDAVF with ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer (Onyx, ev3-Covidien, Irvine CA, USA) is currently not well established. Although several cases have reported the use of Onyx to embolize an intracranial dural arteriovenous fistula using a dual-lumen microballoon catheter, Onyx embolization of an SDAVF using a dual-lumen microballoon catheter has not been reported...

Background Intercostal artery bleedings are potentially fatal injuries. Apart from conservative and surgical treatment options, emergency interventional radiological treatment can also be performed. We report our experience with emergency intercostal artery embolisation. Materials and Methods Patients with acute arterial bleedings from the intercostal artery who were treated interventionally over a period of 7 years were identified retrospectively. Technical and clinical success, clinical and procedural parameters as well as overall survival were analysed...

Objective: Perventricular device closure of ventricular septal defect through midline sternotomy avoids the cardiopulmonary bypass, however, lacks the cosmetic advantage. Perventricular device closure of ventricular septal defect with transverse split sternotomy was performed to add the cosmetic advantage of mini-invasive technique. Methods: Thirty-six pediatric patients with mean age 7.14±3.24 months and weight 5.00±0.88 kg were operated for perventricular device closure of ventricular septal defect through transverse split sternotomy in 4th intercostal space under transesophageal echocardiography guidance...

Hemothorax is a rare but potentially fatal postthoracentesis complication. Early clinical signs may be nonspecific resulting in diagnostic delay. A high index of suspicion is vital for early diagnosis and intervention to avoid further bleeding. Following procedure, early bedside ultrasound findings can be vital for early detection. We report a case of massive hemothorax in a 63-year-old male following therapeutic thoracentesis. Diagnosis was made following highly suggestive sonographic findings prompting thoracotomy and lacerated intercostal artery cauterization...

Post-mortem computed tomography (PMCT) and PMCT angiography (PMCTA) are rapidly becoming effective and practical methods in forensic medicine. In this article, the authors introduce a whole-body PMCTA approach involving left ventricle cardiac puncture. This procedure was performed in 9 males and 3 females. PMCT was performed first. Then a biopsy core needle was used for a percutaneous puncture into the left ventricle through the intercostal area under CT guidance. 1000 mL of contrast media (diatrizoate meglumine and normal saline [0...

Since 1995, video-assisted thoracoscopic oesophagectomy (VATS), according the same surgical principles as the Japanese open surgery, has been completed in 700 patients with oesophageal cancer. Our indication for VATS is (I) no extensive pleural adhesion; (II) no contiguous tumor spread; (III) pulmonary function capable of sustaining single-lung ventilation, and (IV) non radiated patients. We use 4 ports around a 5 cm mini-thoracotomy on 5th intercostal space. We laid emphasis on utilizing magnifying effect of video (5 to 20 magnifications), obtained by positioning the camera at close vicinity to the dissection...

Postoperative intrathoracic hemorrhage is sometimes diagnosed in the thoracic cavity, while the patient is in the recovery room after undergoing thoracic surgery such as lung resection with thoracotomy or mediastinal surgery with a median sternotomy. The information from the chest tube is important to identify this kind of postoperative complication. When the condition becomes severe, the patient may develop hemorrhagic shock due to hemothorax and re-exploration to assess for bleeding and hemostasis may be required...

Introduction Mastopexy in massive weight loss patients is challenging. The breast mound is often unstable and deflated, with a loose inelastic skin envelope. It has become apparent that mammaplasty techniques in these cases should rely more on glandular recontouring rather than on the skin envelope for shaping. Published methods include plication, suspension and autoaugmentation. The residual local tissue (glandular breast tissue, fat tissue, dermoglandular fat flap) is utilised to its full extent in order to reshape a form-stable breast with full upper pole projection...
