Background: Bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) were developed to improve the long-term results of percutaneous coronary intervention, restoring vasomotion. Objectives: To report very late follow-up of everolimus-eluting Absorb BVS (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, USA) in our center. Methods: Observational retrospective study, in a single Brazilian center, from August 2011 to October 2013, including 49 patients submitted to Absorb BVS implantation...

Essentials In 2014, World Thrombosis Day (WTD) was initiated to increase global awareness of thrombosis. Google Trends can be used freely to monitor digital information seeking behavior. We used Google Trends data to assess the impact of WTD on internet searches on venous thrombosis. The WTD period was associated with more searches on thrombosis compared to control periods. SUMMARY: Background World Thrombosis Day (WTD) was launched in 2014 and is to be held every year to increase global awareness of venous thrombosis...

Background: Single anastomosis duodeno-ileal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy (SADI-S) was introduced into bariatric surgery by Sanchez-Pernaute et al. as an advancement of the biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch. Aim: To evaluate the SADI-S procedure with regard to weight loss, comorbidity resolution, and complication rate in the super obese population. Methods: A retrospective chart review was performed on initial 72 patients who underwent laparoscopic or robot-assisted laparoscopic SADI-S between December 17th, 2013 and July 29th, 2015...

Gluteal artery pseudoaneurysms are a rare cause of buttock pain, with few cases reported in the recent literature. Although small pseudoaneurysms are usually asymptomatic, larger can be painful and require treatment. Most of these cases are pseudoaneurysms resulting from local trauma. We report in this case a patient with a gluteal artery pseudoaneurysm. The pseudoaneurysm was successfully thrombosed using ultrasound-guided thrombin injection. This article reviews the literature, discusses the imaging diagnostics and the treatment of gluteal artery aneurysms...

INTRODUCTION: Though theoretically in the paratesticular region one can develop any type of benign tumour of soft tissues, they are the lipomas, leiomyomas and adenomatoid tumours the most usual whereas the hemangiomas are less common. We contribute a new case of epididymis intrascrotal hemangioma (HI), valuing the bibliography that allows us to know the incidence and clinic-pathologic characteristics of these tumours. MATERIAL AND METHOD: A 74-year-old patient includes for study with right scrotal tumour, who is practised orchiectomy...

BACKGROUND: Watermelon colon, or rectal vascular ectasia of the colon, is a very rare vascular lesion. CASE REPORT: A 56-year-old male heavy drinker was admitted to hospital with hematochezia. Colonoscopy revealed linear, watermelon-like vascular stripes throughout the entire colon. Rectal biopsies confirmed the vascular nature of these lesions, showing dilated and trombosed capillaries in the lamina propria. He had neither cirrhosis nor portal hypertension. The watermelon-like lesions regressed spontaneously following the cessation of alcohol intake...

BACKGROUND: The HELLP-syndrome is a rare complication to pregnancy and a potential fatal condition. CASE: We report such a case in a 32-year-old para 2, gravida 1 woman with no known risk factors. A lower transverse uterotomy was performed at 29 weeks and 6 days' gestation based on an indication of HELLP-syndrome. Uncharacteristically lower back pain developed on the second day postoperatively and a gynaecological examination was performed. A partial necrotic cervix uteri was found with many trombosed vessels and necrotic tissue...

Alternative surgical procedures to treat unclippable aneurysms of the intracavernous carotid artery include proximal vessel occlusion and trapping. Those techniques, even in patients with rich collateral vessels, are associated with risk of hemodynamic compromise and ischemic complications. Therefore, a safe treatment requires revascularization to maintain blood flow to the involved territories. We report the case of a 47-year-old female, with ischemic signs and symptoms and a right third nerve palsy caused by a giant aneurysm, partially trombosed, of the intracavernous carotid artery...

We report a patient with a common hepatic artery pseudoaneurism secondary to pancreatitis treated with direct percutaneous embolization as an alternative when transcatheter embolotherapy cannot be performed. Examination of the specimen revealed that the pseudoaneurism was completely trombosed with signs of embolization of its lumen.

The diagnosis of cerebral aneurysm is currently based on the angiographic data. We have tried to evaluate the usefulness of a less-invasive examination, such as the dynamic-CT, in the diagnosis of intracranial aneurysm and of the possible and concomitant subaracnoid haemorrhage. The CT examination is useful in the diagnosis of both subarachnoid haemorrhage and giant trombosed aneurysm. It is less reliable than the angiography as regard to aneurysm of small dimension.

The histopathologic alterations of the allergic cutaneous vasculitis (fibrinoid necrosis of the walls of the small blood vessels with infiltration of neuthrophils in Karyorrexis) is seen in several entities. It is possible to divide such entities in two groups: a) Primitive allergic vasculitis in which the vascular lesion is dominant and. b) Secondary allergic vasculitis in which the vascular alterations, not constant, are integrants of variable histopathologic conditions. Many classifications have deen done on clinical and pathological bases...
