OBJECTIVE: The use of the frozen elephant trunk (FET) technique for repair of type A aortic dissection (TAAD) in Marfan syndrome (MFS) is controversial. We seek to evaluate the efficacy of FET and total arch replacement (TAR) for TAAD in patients with MFS. METHODS: The early and long-term outcomes were analyzed for 106 patients with MFS (mean age, 34.5 ± 9.7 years) undergoing FET + TAR for TAAD. RESULTS: Operative mortality was 6.6% (7 of 106)...

Diaphragmatic rupture occurs in 4%-5% cases of thoracoabdominal injuries. It may present acutely, in a delayed fashion or as a complicated hernia. We are describing the case of a young male presenting in respiratory distress with history of chest trauma 1.5 years back. On investigation, he was found to have left side diaphragmatic hernia containing gangrenous colon with lung collapse. The patient underwent successful operative intervention and discharged after 25 days of hospital stay. Record review suggested that the above mentioned diaphragm injury was missed in his evaluation 1...

BACKGROUND: Thoracoabdominal asynchrony is the nonparallel motion of the ribcage and abdomen. It is estimated by using respiratory inductive plethysmography and, recently, using optoelectronic plethysmography; however the agreement of measurements between these 2 techniques is unknown. Therefore, the present study compared respiratory inductive plethysmography with optoelectronic plethysmography for measuring thoracoabdominal asynchrony to see if the measurements were similar or different...

PURPOSE: To describe the technical aspects of a thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) repair using a patient-specific fenestrated-branched stent-graft. TECHNIQUE: The technique is demonstrated in a 69-year-old man with a 6.2-cm asymptomatic type III TAAA. A patient-specific fenestrated-branched stent-graft was designed with 2 down-going directional branches for the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries and 2 reinforced fenestrations for the renal arteries. The procedure was performed under general anesthesia and included sequential stenting of the celiac, superior mesenteric, and bilateral renal arteries...

The raised-volume rapid thoracoabdominal compression (RVRTC) manoeuvre has been applied to obtain full forced expiratory flow-volume curves in infants. No reference data are available for Asian populations. This study was conducted to establish predictive reference equations for Taiwanese infants. Full-term infants without any chronic disease or major anomaly were enrolled from this cohort study. Full forced expiratory flow-volume curves were acquired using RVRTC manoeuvres through Jaeger's system. Tidal breath analysis, passive respiratory mechanics, and tidal forced expiratory flow-volume curves were performed and collected at the same measurement...

INTRODUCTION: Acute occlusion of the visceral arteries is a threatening complication following branched endovascular aortic repair. Its prompt diagnosis and treatment are mandatory to restore renal function. Several techniques have been used to manage this complication. We present rheolytic thrombectomy as an effective treatment in two patients who developed this condition. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We report two clinical cases of patients, previously treated with implantation of an off-the-shelf thoracoabdominal aortic endograft, with acute bilateral occlusion of the renal arteries...

BACKGROUND: Guidelines summarize medical evidence, they identify the most efficient therapy under study conditions and recommend this therapy for use. The physician now has the challenge to translate a therapy that is efficient under laboratory conditions to a patient who is an individual person. To accomplish this task the physician has to make sure that (I) the ideal typical therapy is applicable and effective in this individual patient taking the special features into consideration, that (II) therapy is compliant with the norm including guidelines, laws and ethical requirements (conformity) and that (III) the therapy meets the patient's needs...

OBJECTIVE: Although few studies have reported outcomes after branched or fenestrated endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (FEVAR) of abdominal aortic aneurysms involving visceral vessels (AAA-Vs), no multi-institutional study has compared FEVAR with open surgery (OS) for AAA-Vs. Our objective was to compare 30-day outcomes after FEVAR vs OS for AAA-Vs. METHODS: Patients who underwent FEVAR (n = 535) and OS (n = 1207) for elective AAA-Vs were identified from the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) 2008 to 2013 database...

INTRODUCTION: Thyroid metastases from colorectal cancer are uncommon and few cases are described in literature. CASE PRESENTATION: A 64-year-old female patient presented with an asymptomatic right cervical nodule with a rapid growth six years after sigmoidectomy for cancer and two years after resection of colorectal lung metastases. Increased CA 19.9 was identified and a thoracoabdominal CT scan revealed the onset of new metastatic bilateral pulmonary lesions. Neck ultrasonography showed a suspicious nodule in the right thyroid lobe, and Fine-needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) of the nodule lead to the diagnosis of colorectal cancer metastasis...

Traumatic dislocation of the hip in children is a rare disease. It only represents 5% of hip dislocations in all age groups. Before 10 years, the mechanism is often a minimal domestic accident; after 10 years, the dislocation occurs with the waning of an accident of the public highway. It is different from that of the adult by its rarity, its ease of reduction and better prognosis. This is an emergency trauma: risk necrosis of the femoral head (If delayed reduction). We report a rare case of a 3 year old boy, who suffered from bipolar trauma after a fall near his height of his house causing him a detachment of the right humerus and post-traumatic dislocation of the left hip...
