The use of minimized extracorporeal circuits (MECC) in cardiac surgery is an important measure to increase the biocompatibility of cardiopulmonary bypass during coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). These circuits eliminate volume storage reservoirs and bubble traps to minimize the circuit. However, the reduction in volume may increase the risk of ...

Patients diagnosed with primary or metastatic liver cancer face a daunting future that is complicated by limited treatment options. Percutaneous hepatic perfusion is a novel approach to chemotherapy delivery that offers significant benefits over contemporary modalities. Percutaneous hepatic perfusion is a procedure in which a chemotherapeutic agent is administered at ...

Anatomic variations of the inferior vena cava (IVC) are found in 3-5% of the population. IVC duplication is a well-known anatomic variation that is important when relevant procedures are being planed. Therefore, the identification of IVC anomalies should be checked prior to pertinent interventions. We report two cases of dual ...

Iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis (DVT) secondary to congenital caval abnormalities is uncommon but should be suspected in younger patients presenting with bilateral DVT. Prior reports have described thrombolytic therapy and angioplasty for noncongenital caval occlusion and intraluminal recanalization for suspected congenital caval obstruction. A novel case is described of a ...

Iliac vein compression syndrome (CS) is a rare cause of deep venous thrombosis. It is caused by an anatomic anomaly in which the right common iliac artery overlies the left common iliac vein causing mechanical compression. Subsequent endothelial changes within the vessels have the potential to spur thrombus formation. Aggressive ...

Gaseous microemboli have been associated with post operative neurological deficits in patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass. Creating an optimal perfusion system that minimizes microemboli production and has enhanced abilities to sequester entrained air during the bypass procedure has been an important focus. This study examines the air-handling capabilities of a cardiopulmonary ...

Gaseous emboli may be introduced into the bypass circuit both from the surgical field and during perfusionist interventions. While circuits provide good protection against massive air embolism, they do not remove gaseous microemboli (GME) from the bypass circuit. The purpose of this preliminary study is to assess the incidence of ...

Deep vein thromboses (DVT) along with its clinical sequelae represent a major health care challenge in our society. An acute massive DVT can result in pulmonary embolism resulting in sudden death. Although oral or systemic anticoagulation therapy may minimize thrombus propagation, it remains ineffective in removing thrombus burden and consequently ...

We hypothesized that interrupting the connection between superficial and deep veins of the upper extremity at the elbow for creation of hemodialysis arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs), in addition to adequate dilation of the elbow veins, will reduce the risk of steal syndrome and venous hypertension. In this prospective study over a ...

Patients with acute iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis often sustain severe postthrombotic complications resulting from venous obstruction and valve incompetence. Conventional anticoagulation prevents thrombus extension, fatal pulmonary embolism, and recurrence of the DVT but can only minimally minimize the postthrombotic complications. Whether early thrombus removal significantly reduces the postthrombotic morbidity is ...

Knowledge of penile embryology and anatomy is essential to any pediatric urologist in order to fully understand and treat congenital anomalies. Sex differentiation of the external genitalia occurs between the 7th and 17th weeks of gestation. The Y chromosome initiates male differentiation through the SRY gene, which triggers testicular development. ...

Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) frequently results in pulmonary arterial thrombosis (PAT). Using multislice-CT (MSCT), we evaluated the incidence of de novo asymptomatic PAT following DVT in subjects undergoing TKA and compared these results by ventilation-perfusion (VP) lung scintigram and ultrasonography of the lower extremities. Twenty-five ...
