We present a case report of recurrent disseminated peritoneal leiomyomatosis in a 30-year-old female with a past history of laparoscopic myomectomy by a technique of morcellation for a large fibroid in 2014. After one year she presented in 2015 with a well-defined oval shaped fibroid along the anterior abdominal wall, which was supplied by the 10th intercostal artery and a branch of right internal mammary artery. She was again presented after 1 year in 2016 with a large pelvic-abdominal fibroid with blood supply from the omental artery, a branch from the right gastroepiploic artery, and sigmoid branches of inferior mesenteric artery...

Perforator flaps have become very popular in reconstructive surgery. The thoracodorsal and lateral thoracic artery perforator flaps are highly studied, and successful clinical series have been reported, whereas the literature concerning the lateral intercostal and serratus anterior artery perforator flaps is quite poor and their vascular anatomy needs yet to be clarified. We describe a case of free serratus anterior artery perforator flap for the reconstruction of a dorsal defect of the foot, followed by an anatomic and radiological study...

Brandy Mills, Thomas Gest
INTRODUCTION: Our discovery of a case of persistent double dorsal aorta prompted us to systematically review the literature of all previously reported cases of this anomaly. For our case, we present a completely separated double dorsal aorta, with the right accessory aorta arising from the abdominal aorta and ascending through the aortic hiatus to supply posterior intercostal arteries (PIAs) to the 9(th) -3(rd) spaces bilaterally. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We examined and compiled data from the ten previously reported cases, along with our observations from our cadaver, into a systematic review of all known cases of persistent double dorsal aorta...

Luca Di Marco, Antonio Pantaleo, Alessandro Leone, Giacomo Murana, Roberto Di Bartolomeo, Davide Pacini
Complex lesions of the thoracic aorta are traditionally treated in 2 surgical steps with the elephant trunk technique. A relatively new approach is the frozen elephant trunk (FET) technique, which potentially allows combined lesions of the thoracic aorta to be treated in a 1-stage procedure combining endovascular treatment with conventional surgery using a hybrid prosthesis. These are very complex and time-consuming operations, and good results can be obtained only if appropriate strategies for myocardial, cerebral, and visceral protection are adopted...

A 10-year-old dog weighing 3.4 kg presented with intermittent regurgitation. Esophagography revealed that the thoracic esophagus was compressed dorsally at the region of the fourth intercostal space and segmentally dilated from the second to third intercostal region. Three-dimensional computed tomographic (CT) angiography confirmed a suspected vascular ring anomaly and also revealed multiple other vascular anomalies. These included aberrant right subclavian artery, absence of bilateral external jugular veins, right-gastric caval shunt, and a completely duplicated caudal vena cava...

Santiago Rojas, Eduard Quintana, Marisa Ortega, Alfonso Rodríguez-Baeza
Bronchial arteries commonly originate from thoracic aorta between T5 and T6. Ectopic origins from aortic arch, supraortic trunks and their branches, coronary arteries, and even abdominal aorta have been described in the literature. In some circumstances, such as pulmonary artery malformations, chronic embolism, or inflammatory diseases of the lung, the bronchial arteries become hypertrophied and eventually could be the only supply of pulmonary circulation. Here, we describe a case of an elderly man who presented an unusual pattern of bronchial arteries of the right lung combined with severe bilateral hypertrophy of bronchial vessels...

Sex and ovarian cycle have been speculated to modify respiratory muscle(s) blood flow control during exercise, but the findings are inconclusive. We tested the hypotheses that females would have higher respiratory muscle blood flow and vascular conductance (VC) compared to males during exercise and that this difference would be accentuated in proestrus versus ovariectomized (OVA) females. Mean arterial pressure (carotid artery catheter) and respiratory muscle blood flow (radiolabeled microspheres) were measured during moderate-intensity (24m/min, 10% grade) exercise in male (n=9), female (n=9), and OVA female (n=7) rats and near-maximal (60m/min, 5% grade) exercise in male (n=5) and female (n=7) rats...

BACKGROUND: Selection of suitable perforators is critical for satisfactory postreconstructive surgery outcome. This study aims to compare a small central versus a large peripheral perforator flap in a rat extended dorsal three-vascular territory perforator flap model. METHODS: An extended intercostal artery perforator flap with three vascular territories was used to model a small central perforator flap. An extended deep circumflex iliac artery flap with three vascular territories was used to model a large peripheral perforator flap...

Nabiul Islam, Sudip Misra
The network of novel nano-material based nanodevices, known as nanoscale communication networks or nanonetworks has ushered a new communication paradigm in the terahertz band (0.1-10 THz). In this work, first we envisage an architecture of nanonetworks-based Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) monitoring, consisting of nano-macro interface (NM) and nanodevice-embedded Drug Eluting Stents (DESs), termed as nanoDESs. Next, we study the problem of asymmetric data delivery in such nanonetworks-based systems and propose a simple distance-aware power allocation algorithm, named catch-the-pendulum, which optimizes the energy consumption of nanoDESs for communicating data from the underlying nanonetworks to radio frequency (RF) based macro-scale communication networks...

Blunt trauma resulting in rib fractures can be associated with hemothorax, pneumothorax, pulmonary contusions or less frequently chest and abdominal wall hematomas. Our case describes the first report of hemoperitoneum secondary to intercostal arterial bleeding from blunt trauma in a patient on anticoagulation.

Median sternotomy is frequently selected for the resection of pulmonary artery tumor, and pneumonectomy is performed for complete resection. However, it is difficult to see the inferior pulmonary vein and transect it safely via median sternotomy, so additional thoracotomy is often required and this is highly invasive. In the present case, we employed thoracoscopy (which we routinely use for VATS lobectomy) to transect the inferior pulmonary vein via median sternotomy without additional intercostal thoracotomy...

We report an extremely unique and previously unreported case of a pseudoaneurysm arising from an intercostal artery that also gave origin to the artery of Adamkiewicz. Due to the potential risk of losing the artery of Adamkiewicz, a conservative approach was indicated. On short interval follow-up imaging, the pseudoaneurysm and associated hematoma spontaneously resolved with preservation of the intercostal artery. We performed a literature review of the natural course of pseudoaneurysm as well as their occurrence in the intercostal arteries...

The primary risks associated with thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) repair-namely operative death, paraplegia, and renal failure necessitating dialysis-are commonly related to the distal ischemia that occurs during aortic clamping and the disruption of vital branching arteries. Our technique for open TAAA repair has evolved over the course of 3 decades, from the unheparinized, simple "clamp-and-sew" approach learned directly from E. Stanley Crawford himself to a contemporary, multimodal strategy that uses an array of surgical adjuncts...

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to develop a simple, reliable, and timesaving technique for the therapy of thoracoabdominal aortic (TAA) aneurysms that are not suitable for endovascular repair. METHODS: In this pilot study, we sought to combine the advantages of classic open vascular procedure with the use of endoscopic surgical tools and small skin incisions to develop a minimally invasive approach for TAA replacement. The following procedures were used: endoscopic exposure and closure of the lower intercostal arteries; small posterolateral thoracotomy and left retroperitoneal incisions to expose the anastomotic regions of the aorta; partial anticoagulation; passive bypass and sequential aortic clamping; tunnelling of the graft through the native aortic lumen (endoaneurysmorrhaphy) and open performance of vascular anastomosis...

INTRODUCTION: Oncoplastic breast conservation surgery (OBCS) combines the principles of surgical oncology and plastic surgery. OBCS has now become a growing option for the treatment of breast cancer and forms a part of breast-conserving therapy (BCT). We sought to investigate and report our experience in two breast units in Glasgow (Victoria Infirmary and Western Infirmary) on volume replacement OBCS. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Details of patients treated with volume replacement OBCS were identified from a prospectively recorded database from November 2010 to October 2015...

BACKGROUND: Dorsal intercostal artery perforator (DICAP) flap is an ideal flap to be used for posterior trunk defects since it leads to lower donor-site morbidity and shorter operative times, offers easy surgical planning, and uses a reliable and easily identifiable artery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study retrospectively reviewed 52 patients with meningomyelocele defects that were closed with DICAP flap between January 2007 and May 2015. SURGICAL TECHNIQUE: Each of the 4th to 12th posterior intercostal arteries can be used as dorsal perforators...

BACKGROUND: Although reduction mammaplasty is one of the most common procedures in plastic surgery, it is associated with some serious complications, especially in cases of severe hypertrophy or advanced ptosis, including necrosis of the nipple and areola, absence of normal sensation of the nipple-areolar complex, and loss of lactational function for future nursing. A thorough understanding of the breast anatomy is vital for successful reduction mammaplasty. This article describes the blood supply and innervation of the breasts, and introduces a modified round block technique for reduction mammaplasty based on this anatomy...

INTRODUCTION: The management of active bleeding with haemodinamic lability in the paediatric trauma patient is difficult and generally leads to damage control surgery. Vascular Interventional Radiology (VIR) techniques are useful for the diagnosis as for the definitive treatment. AIM: The aim of our study was to describe our experience and evaluate effectiveness of VIR in the management of the paediatric trauma patient with active bleeding signs. METHODS: Retrospective analysis (2003-2014) of politraumatic patients who showed contrast blush on computed tomography and then treated by VIR techniques...
