Background: Mycotic aneurysms arising from the pulmonary arteries are rare; only a few cases have been reported. Staphylococcus and Streptococcus species are the most common causative pathogens. Mycotic aneurysms are seldom clinically apparent unless as a sequela of adverse procedural complications. They carry high morbidity and mortality if not treated expeditiously. Case Report: We present the case of a 37-year-old male with bacteremia and bronchopneumonia associated with a pulmonary artery mycotic aneurysm...

The unexpected demise of a 12-year-old male neutered English bulldog solicited a gross examination, which revealed a blood-filled space occurring in the proximal left subclavian artery (LSA). It originated about 1 cm from the branching point of the vessel and progressively dilated for 3 cm distal to this origin. Histopathological investigation showed that the tunica media of the LSA was more than 50% split, with the blood-filled space dissecting through the arterial wall. In the tunica media of the LSA, severe multifocal fragmentation and/or loss of the elastic fibers was observed...

Hemoptysis is a life-threatening complication of Behcet's disease that is likely related to pulmonary artery aneurysm (PAA). Vascular interventional radiology may offer effective emergency therapeutic option, but has not been thoroughly investigated in this setting. A case series of a French referral center for hemoptysis combined with a literature review of case reports was conducted. Between 1995 and 2016, 12 patients were referred to our center for hemoptysis revealing or complicating the course of Behcet's disease...

Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is an inflammatory vasculitis that creates regions of stenosis and aneurysm formation. The authors describe a 66-year-old female with hepatic artery rupture as the first presentation of undiagnosed PAN, presenting with abdominal pain followed by hemorrhagic shock. This aneurysm was suture ligated with a successful outcome. A mesenteric arteriogram demonstrated lesions consistent with PAN including aneurysms of the left gastric branches, right and left hepatic arteries, and beaded appearance of the iliac artery...

Mycotic aneurysms, which may occur anywhere in the body, may be prone to spontaneous rupture. Antibiotic therapy combined with surgical debridement without or with revascularization has been described as potential treatment options. This report describes a combined balloon occlusion technique with the injection of ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer for the treatment of a mycotic aneurysm of the pulmonary artery secondary to infective endocarditis. Similar techniques have been described in the cerebral circulation and may obviate concerns for coil erosion, non-target embolization, or superinfection...

OBJECTIVE: Vascular manifestations including pulmonary artery aneurysms and venous thrombosis are seen in up to 14% of patients with Behcet's Disease. We report a patient who had recurrent deep vein thrombosis (DVT) as the presenting symptom of Behcet's Disease. METHODS: A 19-year-old male who presented with acute iliofemoral DVT, confirmed by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and venogram. May-Thurner syndrome was also observed. Repeated catheter-based pharmaco-mechanical thrombolysis, thrombectomy and subsequent iliac vein stenting were performed...

INTRODUCTION: Aneurysm is a localized dilatation of an artery of at least 1.5 times the normal diameter that occurs when part of an artery wall weakens or is injured, allowing it to widen abnormally. In practice, an arterial aneurysm is more common in comparison to a venous aneurysm. Because of the rare incidence of venous aneurysms, treatment guidelines are not clearly established and thus treatment strategies vary. This is a case of a 57-year-old Saudi woman, with no significant medical history, who presented to Prince Sultan Military Hospital complaining of swelling in the right side of the neck that started 3 years ago...

An 84-year-old man with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) was referred to our institution for further treatment of severe swelling of the left lower extremity. The left iliac vein was compressed by the abdominal aortic aneurysm and a right common iliac arterial aneurysm measuring 62 mm and 45 mm in diameter and was partially thrombosed. Multiple pulmonary artery embolisms were also noted. Endovascular repair of the abdominal aortic aneurysm and the right common iliac arterial aneurysm was performed because of his respiratory dysfunction...

We report a rare case of right heart failure caused by distal aortic aneurysm. Although aortopulmonary fistula is a common complication of giant aortic arch aneurysm, right heart failure caused by mechanical pressure by aneurysm is very rare. A 79-year-old female patient presented dyspnea. Contrast computed tomography (CT) of the thorax delineated a 78 mm aortic arch aneurysm pressing the main to left pulmonary artery and a 40 mm pericardial effusion at maximum depth at posterior side. Echocardiography showed the acceleration flow from main to left pulmonary artery and moderate pulmonary hypertension...

Hughes-Stovin syndrome is a rare disorder of unknown etiology. Although the association between multiple pulmonary artery aneurysms and venous thrombosis of the lower limbs was reported by Beattie and Hall in 1911, it was not until 1962 that the eponym "Hughes-Stovin syndrome" was formally introduced in the medical literature. We describe 2 patients with Hughes-Stovin syndrome who presented with pulmonary artery aneurysm, thrombophlebitis, hemoptysis, and oral ulcers, review the manifestations of the disease, and compare its similarities with and differences from Behçet disease...

Patients with double-inlet left ventricle usually have a small ascending aorta. In the Norwood procedure, which involves a staged operation, a neoaorta is constructed with a homograft, and the pulmonary artery plays a role in the systemic circulation. Dilatation or aneurysmal changes can occur over time due to the exposure of the neoaorta to systemic pressure, which may induce adverse effects on adjacent structures. We report a rare case of surgical repair for neoaortic root dilataiton with aortic regurgitation, compressing the left pulmohary artery, in a patient who underwent the Norwood procedure...
