Bissacco Daniele, Domanin Maurizio, Del Gobbo Alessandro, Gabrielli Livio
Perigraft seroma is a rare complication occurs after placement of any vascular graft. It is defined as the collection of a sterile, clear and acellular liquid around prosthesis. It can appear years after surgery as a soft, palpable and painless mass. We present a perigraft seroma occurred in a 75-years-patient underwent Dacron right axillo-bifemoral bypass for Leriche's syndrome. Ultrasound and computed tomography scan revealed involvement of graft left branch and bifurcation. Although several treatment options have been proposed, removal and replacement of prosthetic affected tract with another of a different material has been proved the choice with best result...

The aortic bifurcation and iliac vessels are common sites of atherosclerotic occlusive disease causing the clinical expression known as "Leriche's syndrome". An aortobifemoral bypass grafting in the setting of a septic groin remains a significant challenge to vascular surgeons. We present a 65-year-old male with complete occlusion of the distal aorta and iliac arteries; he had undergone a left axillo-femoral and femoral-femoral artery bypass 2 years prior to our evaluation. Owing to a complex graft infection in the right groin and worsening lower extremity ischemia, we performed an aortobifemoral reconstruction through the right obturator membrane...

Gastric outlet obstruction in adults is usually caused by pyloric stenosis secondary to peptic ulcer disease or malignancy. However, there are few other causes such as a foreign body and external compression due to pseudocyst pancreas. We present a rare aetiology of a large collection of pus in the lesser sac in our patient causing gastric outlet obstruction. A perforated peptic ulcer was suspected in our patient who had symptoms of sudden onset pain in epigastric region which was referred to back. This was followed by pain in upper abdomen, vomiting, constipation and fever for which patient was being managed conservatively before being referred to us...

Leriche syndrome results from thrombotic occlusion of the abdominal aorta immediately above the site of its bifurcation. Impotence in leriche syndrome is caused due to proximal obstruction, commonly involving isolated common iliac, internal iliac, internal pudendal or dorsalis penis artery. The symptoms of Leriche syndrome include intermittent and bilateral claudication, pallor, coldness and fatigue in lower extremities. Data regarding psychiatric morbidity in Leriche syndrome is unavailable. We hereby report the case of Leriche syndrome, presenting to psychiatry outpatient department with depressive disorder and erectile dysfunction (ED) with focus on dilemmas faced in the diagnosis and management in psychiatry...

Presented in the article are the results of treating a total of 108 patients with chronic critical lower limb ischaemia (CCLLI) confirmed according to the recommendations of the Transatlantic Inter-Society Consensus (TASC) 2007 [1]. All patients were diagnosed as having combined lesions of the aortoiliac and femoropopliteal segments of the arterial bed of the lower limbs. All patients underwent simultaneous hybrid operations: open reconstructive interventions in the infrarenal zone and stenting of iliac arteries...

The "noncoronary collateral circulation" (NCCC) or "noncoronary collateral myocardial blood flow" (NCCMBF), reaches the heart through a micro-vascular network arising from the bronchial, esophageal, pericardial, diaphragmatic, and aortic arteries. The left and right internal thoracic arteries (ITAs) along with their collateral branches also serve as a source of NCCMBF-a feature seen in other mammals. Under certain circumstances the ITAs have a high potential for developing collateral branches. In the case of severe Leriche syndrome or with chronic obstruction of the abdominal aorta, the ITAs can serve as the main or even sole source of blood supply to the lower limbs...

René Leriche (1879-1955) was a 20(th) century French surgeon generally known in medicine for the syndrome that carries his name, namely the Leriche syndrome in the aorto-iliac occlusive disease. This paper is published to mark the commemoration of 60 year since Leriche's death. Although Dr. Leriche's legacy resides in the domain of vascular medicine, his research enclosed bone pathology and surgical management of pain. Having his surgical training done under professors Mathieu Jaboulay and Antonin Poncet, his friendship and association with Alexis Carrel and William Halsted have contributed to René Leriche's development as a surgeon, researcher and thinker...

The coral reef aorta (CRA) is a rare syndrome commonly referred to a distribution of calcified plaques in the visceral part of the aorta. Because those plaques can cause malperfusion of the lower limbs, visceral ischemia or renovascular hypertension, surgical treatment is recommended. Transaortic endarterectomy is accepted as a standard repair and it is often performed through an extensive thoracoabdominal approach. CRA has been reported in association with polidistrectual atherosclerotic disease, such as Leriche syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Peripheral arterial disease and coronary artery disease are frequently associated. The percutaneous approach may sometimes involve additional difficulties to the coronary artery disease. CLINICAL CASE: The case is presented on an 82 year-old male patient with multiple cardiovascular risk factors, a Leriche syndrome and axillobifemoral bypass, who was admitted to hospital due to an inferior myocardial infarction. The procedure approach (radial, brachial, or femoral access routes for percutaneous coronary treatment) and associated complications from the procedure are discussed...

While acute arterial occlusion causes life-threatening ischemia and organ damage requiring urgent revascularization, the incidental identification of arterial occlusions in asymptomatic patients represents a therapeutic dilemma in clinicians. Does chronic asymptomatic artery occlusion require specific treatment?

To describe a case of intraoperative thrombotic occlusion of the left hypogastric artery (HA) during endovascular treatment for acute Leriche syndrome and a feasible technique for HA embolectomy and prevention of pelvic ischemia. After bilateral transfemoral vascular access Fogarty thrombectomy of the infrarenal aorta and bilateral common and external iliac arteries was performed. Then, an intraoperative angiography revealed new thrombotic occlusion of the left HA. Ipsilateral transfemoral approach was impeded by a strong angulation between HA and iliac artery...

STUDY DESIGN: Case report and review of literature. OBJECTIVE: Case report of an acute Leriche-like syndrome as an unusual complication after posterior transpedicular instrumentation of an L1 fracture. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Injuries to the aorta after pedicle screw placement are rare. Reports exist about acute hemorrhage, erosions, and pseudoaneurysm formation. METHODS: A 47-year-old female developed an acute occlusion of the infrarenal aorta after posterior transpedicular instrumentation of an L1 burst-fracture...

A 65-year-old man presented to our hospital due to intermittent claudication and swelling in his left leg. He had Leriche syndrome and deep vein thrombosis. We performed endovascular therapy (EVT) for Leriche syndrome, and a temporary filter was inserted in the inferior vena cava. He received anticoagulation therapy for deep vein thrombosis. The stenotic lesion in the terminal aorta was stented with an excellent postprocedural angiographic result and dramatic clinical improvement after EVT. This case suggests that EVT can be a treatment for Leriche syndrome...

Situs inversus is a rare congenital defect defined by a mirror image anatomic variation of the thoracic and abdominal organs. In this situation, abdominal aortic surgery may become particularly challenging. This is the case of a 51-year-old man, who presented with an incapacitating lower limb claudication. On his workup, a complete occlusion of the infrarenal aorta requiring surgical revascularization was found. Additionally, a situs inversus totalis was identified along with a single horseshoe kidney. The patient underwent uneventfully a surgical aortobifemoral interposition...

Prof. Dr. René Leriche was a famous French surgeon who lived between 1879 and 1955. After working as a vascular surgeon in Lyon, he was appointed professor at the University of Strasbourg in 1924 and later the Paris Collége de France in 1937. Leriche had proposed vascular patches as the ideal treatment for obliterated vascular segments and advocated the necessity of sympathectomy in arterial diseases in the 1920s. He defined "Leriche Syndrome" in 1923 which is known by his name and which develops as a result of incomplete obstruction of the aortic bifurcation...
