OBJECTIVES: Spinal cord protection during thoracoabdominal aortic surgery is challenging for surgeons. We performed thoracoabdominal replacement using a strategy for maintaining spinal cord perfusion pressure. Here, we report our experience with this procedure and the surgical outcomes. METHODS: Between January 2000 and December 2014, 130 patients [male: 91 (74.6%), female: 39 (25.4%); mean age: 66.6 ± 12.8 years] underwent thoracoabdominal replacement using cardiopulmonary bypass at Hiroshima Shimin Hospital, Japan...

Aortic dissection is a life threatening cardiovascular catastrophy. Its incidence estimated to 5-6 cases per 100,000 patients/year. The intimal tear happens at the ascending aorta in Type A, meanwhile at the aortic isthmus in Type B, but entry point may develop anywhere alongside the entire aorta. All types may affect a short aortic segment resulting in a localized false aneurysm, others separate the intimal layer at longer extension down to the visceral segment and far beyond to the femoral arteries. Dissection of orifices of side branches may lead to cerebral, upper extremity, spinal, visceral, renal and lower extremity malperfusion...

OBJECTIVE: This study assessed the applicability and outcomes of the closure of unused cuffs in branched endovascular aneurysm repair (b-EVAR) of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm. METHODS: We reviewed b-EVAR procedures at a tertiary referral center to identify patients who underwent incomplete branching and needed closure of the unused branch cuffs. An electronic database and intraoperative and follow-up imaging studies were reviewed to assess technical applicability and outcomes...

Structured light plethysmography (SLP) is a light-based, noncontact technique that measures tidal breathing by monitoring displacements of the thoracoabdominal (TA) wall. We used SLP to measure tidal breathing parameters and their within-subject variability (v) in 30 children aged 7-16 years with asthma and abnormal spirometry (forced expiratory volume in 1 sec [FEV1] <80% predicted) during a routine clinic appointment. As part of standard care, the reversibility of airway obstruction was assessed by repeating spirometry after administration of an inhaled bronchodilator...

Avishek Chatterjee, A P Prathosh, Pragathi Praveena
In this paper, we propose a novel computer vision technique to measure respiration rate by counting the periodic thoracoabdominal motion in real-time using an inexpensive consumer grade camera. We compute the component of optical flow parallel to the image gradient at each pixel, which is a computationally inexpensive operation. Then, we find a principal flow field by gathering information over many frames. Subsequently, in each frame, we compute the component of flow along this principal flow field to capture the thoracoabdominal motion...

BACKGROUND: The risk of perioperative cerebrovascular events in endovascular repair of thoracic and thoracoabdominal aneurysms is reported from 2% to 15%. The unavoidable use of an upper extremity access during branched endovascular aneurysm repair (b-EVAR) may play a role in embolic brain injuries. For this reason, some advocate the use of a left-sided upper access to avoid crossing the origin of supra-aortic vessels. However, the assumption that right brachial access has a higher risk for stroke during b-EVAR has not been confirmed in the literature...

Paragangliomas are rare extra-adrenal tumors of sympathetic or parasympathetic paraganglia origin; of these, mediastinal paragangliomas are 2% of all cases. We present the case of a 21-year-old woman with uncontrolled arterial hypertension who had a functioning 6.5 × 6.2-cm retrocardiac paraganglioma firmly attached to the pericardium. The patient underwent tumor resection via a right thoracoabdominal incision; this surgical approach enabled adequate exposure for complete resection without institution of cardiopulmonary bypass or need for cardiac reconstruction or autotransplantation...

BACKGROUND: More than 80% of infrarenal aortic aneurysms are treated by endovascular repair. However, adoption of fenestrated and branched endovascular repair for complex aortic aneurysms has been limited, despite high morbidity and mortality associated with open repair. There are few published reports of consecutive outcomes, inclusive of all fenestrated and branched endovascular repairs, starting from the inception of a complex aortic aneurysm program. Therefore, we examined a single center's consecutive experience of fenestrated and branched endovascular repair of complex aortic aneurysms...

OBJECTIVE: Endovascular treatment of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAAs) with branched and fenestrated stent grafts often requires upper extremity arterial access for antegrade delivery of bridging covered stents into the visceral arteries. Axillary, brachial, and radial artery approaches have been described, but data on the safety and utility of the different approaches remain limited. We have preferentially used axillary artery conduits for upper extremity arterial access during endovascular repair of TAAA and describe our technique and report our experience herein...

Conventional open repair of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAAs) is still associated with severe complications and shows inmediate mortality rates up to 20%. Although there is an increasing number of cases treated exclusively by an endovascular approach, renovisceral debranching still repesents a valid alternative in high risk patients for open surgery and in those who endovascular procedures are not feasable due to anatomic limitations or are not available when patients that can not wait for treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Chronic aortic occlusion usually occurs from the infrarenal branch to the terminal aorta. We report the case of a patient with an occlusion that began at the suprarenal artery, and there was also occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery and extreme stenosis of the celiac artery. Antegrade bypass from the ascending aorta to the common hepatic artery was performed. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 59-year-old patient presented to our hospital with uremia due to acute anuric renal failure and anorexia...

Thyroid metastases are rare in clinical practice. We describe the case of an 85-year-old woman who was referred to our department due to a multinodular goiter with compressive symptoms and subclinical hyperthyroidism. The patient was also undergoing evaluation for a polyp in her left nasal cavity, which was then diagnosed as a malignant melanoma of the nasal mucosa. A thoracoabdominal magnetic resonance imaging obtained for cancer staging revealed a > 50% tracheal obstruction caused by the goiter. The patient underwent simultaneous total thyroidectomy and melanoma excision...

OBJECTIVE: Perioperative cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drainage is a well-established technique for spinal cord protection during thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) open repair and is usually performed using dripping chamber-based systems. A new automated device for controlled and continuous CSF drainage, designed to maintain CSF pressure around the desired set values, thus avoiding unnecessary drainage, is currently available. The aim of our study was to determine whether the use of the new LiquoGuard automated device (Möller Medical GmbH, Fulda, Germany) during TAAA open repair was safe and effective in maintaining the desired CSF pressure values and whether the incidence of complications was reduced compared with a standard catheter connected to a dripping chamber...

PURPOSE: To determine interreader and intrareader repeatability and correlations among measurements of computerized tomography-based anthropomorphic measurements in patients with pulmonary fibrosis undergoing lung transplantation. METHODS: This was an institutional review board-approved, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act-compliant retrospective study of 23 randomly selected subjects (19 male and 4 female; median age = 69 years; range: 66-77 years) with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis undergoing pulmonary transplantation, who had also undergone preoperative thoracoabdominal computerized tomography...

Muscular dystrophy is a group of inherited myopathies characterised by progressive skeletal muscle wasting, including of the respiratory muscles. Respiratory failure, i.e. when the respiratory system fails in its gas exchange functions, is a common feature in muscular dystrophy, being the main cause of death, and it is a consequence of lung failure, pump failure or a combination of the two. The former is due to recurrent aspiration, the latter to progressive weakness of respiratory muscles and an increase in the load against which they must contract...
