The Raymond-Roy Occlusion Classification (RROC) is the standard for evaluating coiled aneurysms (Class I: complete obliteration; Class II: residual neck; Class III: residual aneurysm), but not all Class III aneurysms behave the same over time. This is a retrospective review of 370 patients with 390 intracranial aneurysms treated with coil ...

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) as a treatment of coronary artery disease can be a simple, rapid procedure with a clear benefit for the patient, but it could also become a complex procedure with fatal consequences. These complications depend on the lesion itself, material used and also on operating staff. In ...

An 81-year-old man with atrial fibrillation presented with embolic stroke in the right middle cerebral artery. During intravenous thrombolysis, he became comatose and developed a recurrent embolism in the top of the basilar artery. Intra-arterial mechanical disruption of the embolus failed to recanalize. Laboratory studies on admission demonstrated thrombocytosis, but ...

Dissection of a renal artery is rare and is usually associated with underlying arterial disease. Bilateral renal artery dissection following extreme exertion is exceptionally uncommon, and thus presents a diagnostic challenge. We report a case of a middle-aged, otherwise healthy man who presented to the hospital with left flank pain ...

Intravenous agitated saline injection is useful in identifying right-to-left shunting at the atrial or intrapulmonary level. Anomalous systemic venous drainage to the left atrium is a rare but easily correctable cause of right-to-left shunting which, if left undiagnosed, may have serious consequences, including meningitis and pyogenic brain abscesses. This case ...

This is the first report of adalimumab-associated pulmonary cryptococcosis. A 56-year-old female with rheumatoid arthritis without a history of pulmonary disease was simultaneously administered adalimumab (40 mg/2 wks), methotrexate (4 mg/wk), and isoniazid (200 mg/day). Five months later, chest radiography revealed a small spiculated pulmonary nodule, and the laboratory test ...

We sought to review our experience with isolated partial anomalous pulmonary veins as their management is controversial. We reviewed all patients with isolated partial anomalous pulmonary veins >18 years attending the Congenital Clinic from 1988-2008. Forty-three patients aged 20-73 years were included. Fifteen patients had no surgery, 11 of whom ...

Pulmonary sequestration is a congenital malformation characterised by cystic, non-functioning embryonic lung tissue with vascularisation of an abnormal systemic artery. They are classified as intralobar (75%) and extralobar (25%) and are more common in the left lung and lower lobes (60-90%). We report two cases of intralobar pulmonary sequestration located ...

Newborns with obstructed infradiaphragmatic total anomalous pulmonary venous return (TAPVR) are often clinically unstable. Temporary relief of the pulmonary venous obstruction may improve their clinical status before surgical repair. Three neonates (two premature and one full-term) with obstructed infradiaphragmatic TAPVR at the ductus venosus (DV) underwent stenting of the DV ...

Objective: Repair of anomalous pulmonary venous connection (APVC) to superior vena cava (SVC) with internal pericardial patch may be complicated by the obstruction of the SVC or pulmonary veins and sinus node dysfunction. Moreover, the shrinkage of the pericardium may lead to late obstruction. Various techniques are practiced, which have ...

Fontan operation is the connection of the systemic venous return to the pulmonary arteries, performed in patients with single ventricle physiology. The Fontan circuit is commonly fenestrated because of early postoperative risks such as high systemic venous pressure and low cardiac output. As it causes progressive cyanosis and increased risk ...

Pulmonary blastoma (PB) is a thoracopulmonary mesenchymal disembryogenic neoplasm which is rarely seen and generally in childhood. Pulmonary sequestration is one of the less observed congenital malformations. A 45-year-old female patient who was diagnosed with PB, histopathologically developed on atypically placed extrapulmonary sequestration in the left upper zone is presented ...

Post-repair pulmonary venous obstruction is a complication that may occur after surgical repair of total anomalous pulmonary veins. Obstruction may occur at the site of surgical anastomosis or it may be intrinsic to the pulmonary veins. The optimal approach to post-repair pulmonary venous obstruction remains controversial because of high mortality ...

During the treatment of 86 patients with video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) anatomical resection (include segmentectomy) within the last two years, we have encountered five patients (5.8%) with anomalous venous returns. Anomalous returns included: 1) common trunk of the left pulmonary vein; 2) right middle pulmonary vein (V4) draining into the ...

We describe a case of left-sided partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection diagnosed in the setting of a respiratory illness affecting the right lung, which presumably elevated pulmonary pressures and worsened right-to-left shunting. The anatomical configuration appears to be highly unusual in this case, with separate supracardiac connections of the left ...

Surgical repair of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) in patients with right atrial isomerism is associated with a significant risk of recurrent pulmonary venous obstruction (PVO). We evaluate the effect of sutureless repair to reduce the risk of recurrent PVO. Since November 2007, five patients, including three neonates, with ...

Pulmonary sequestration is a congenital abnormality that can be divided into intralobar or extralobar types. Both types are characterized by pulmonary tissue that does not communicate with the bronchial tree or pulmonary arteries and typically has its arterial supply arising from the descending aorta. We report a case of an ...

Partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection with infradiaphragmatic drainage into the inferior vena cava (scimitar syndrome) constitutes a rare diagnosis in adults. Diagnosis is suggested by plain chest roentgenogram and confirmed by computed tomography angiography or magnetic resonance imaging. Reported operations for scimitar syndrome are complex, often requiring circulatory arrest. Reoperation ...

Total anomalous venous drainage is a rare congenital cardiac defect seen in 1% of the population; there is usually a concomitant atrial septal defect. We discuss such a diagnostic challenge in a patient who presented on a number of occasions with acute respiratory distress and haemoptysis. True understanding of her ...

Scimitar syndrome is a rare but serious congenital condition that consists of anomalous pulmonary venous drainage of the right lung to the inferior vena cava. The appearance on chest radiography resembles a curved Turkish sword, or scimitar. Scimitar syndrome is associated with other anomalies, including hypoplasia of the right lung, ...

Following routine medical screening, a 26-year-old man was found to have aortic coarctation and a partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection. Historically, multiple cardiac pathologies, such as in the present case, required a surgical approach; however, percutaneous treatment of the coarctation with a covered stent and occlusion of the partial anomalous ...

This report describes a 62-year-old man who experienced elevated serum carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA19-9) levels (>500 U/mL) for 4 years, and was finally diagnosed with right intralobar pulmonary sequestration. Surgery confirmed the presence an aberrant artery arising from the descending thoracic aorta and entering the right lower lobe basal segment. ...

Extralobar pulmonary sequestrations are most commonly found within the thoracic cavity, but have been described within the abdomen. We present the case of a 16-month-old boy with an intradiaphragmatic pulmonary sequestration and demonstrate a computed tomographic scan finding that might help identify this extremely rare abnormality preoperatively.
