Aortic dissections and aneurysms are seen with low frequency and have high risk for deterioration during prehospital care. It is essential to include both dissections and aneurysms in your differential diagnoses whenever evaluating patients with chest or abdominal complaints. Often a good history is the best indication of one of ...

Medial arterial calcification is common in advanced kidney disease but its impact on cardiovascular disease is uncertain because imaging techniques used to date cannot reliably distinguish it from atherosclerotic calcification. We have previously shown that breast arterial calcification (BAC) is exclusively medial and is a marker of generalized medial calcification ...

In this study, we aimed to research the relation between breast arterial calcifications (BACs) detected on mammography and two well-known markers of cardiovascular diseases-carotid artery intima-media thickness (C-IMT) and haemodynamics parameters like carotid peak-systolic velocity (PSV), end-diastolic velocity (EDV) and resistive index (RI). The study group consisted of 50 consecutive ...

Mammography as a non invasive method has been suggested to be helpful in predicting coronary artery disease. This study aimed to investigate whether presence and severity of breast artery calcification (BAC) on mammograms is associated with computed tomography coronary angiography (CTCA) finding such as coronary artery calcium (CAC) score and ...

Duodenal metastasis from renal cell carcinoma is rare, and even rarer is a massive gastrointestinal bleeding from such tumours. Coeliac occlusive disease, although rarely symptomatic, can lead to ischaemic changes with anastomotic dehiscence and leaks when a patient undergoes pancreatoduodenectomy. A 41-year-old man with known metastasis to the adrenal glands ...

A 48-year-old woman presented at our hospital with acute abdominal pain 3 years after being diagnosed with thromboangiitis obliterans (TAO). Computed tomography revealed occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and multiple kidney infarction with thrombus floating in the thoracic aorta connected with the intercostal artery. Despite emergency embolectomy, further ...

This study sought to assess the vascular response of overlapping Absorb stents compared with overlapping newer-generation everolimus-eluting metallic platform stents (Xience V [XV]) in a porcine coronary artery model. The everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold (Absorb) is a novel approach to treating coronary lesions. A persistent inflammatory response, fibrin deposition, and ...

Long saphenous vein is the most common conduit utilized for surgical coronary revascularization. Ultrasound-assisted vein assessment is superior to traditional clinical examination of the long saphenous vein in discerning path and suitability for use as a conduit. Preoperative ultrasound mapping of the long saphenous vein is easy and rapidly accomplished ...

Atherosclerotic plaques in carotid arteries can be characterized in-vivo by multicontrast cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR), which has been thoroughly validated with histology. However, the non-quantitative nature of multicontrast CMR and the need for extensive post-acquisition interpretation limit the widespread clinical application of in-vivo CMR plaque characterization. Quantitative T2 mapping is ...

The calcification process in aortic stenosis has garnered considerable interest but only limited investigation into selected signaling pathways. This study investigated mechanisms related to hypoxia, hyaluronan homeostasis, brown adipocytic differentiation, and ossification within calcified valves. Surgically explanted calcified aortic valves (n=14) were immunostained for markers relevant to these mechanisms and ...

BACKGROUND: Multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) has been used to provide diagnostic information after heart valve replacements such as prosthetic valve dysfunction. However, only few data are available about aortic paraprosthetic regurgitation (APR). The aim of this study is to assess the feasibility, accuracy, and reproducibility of the existence of APR ...

Endovascular techniques have been slow to assume a primary role in the management of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAAs) because of the high cost of multiple components, regulatory challenges, manufacturing delays, and the complexity of multibranched stent graft insertion. Standardized off-the-shelf stent grafts have the potential to lower all these barriers ...

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter aortic valve (TAV) implantation is a treatment for selected patients with failing bioprostheses. We previously showed that currently available SAPIEN (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, CA) TAV sizes did not yield acceptable valve-in-valve (VIV) hemodynamics in small degenerated bioprostheses because optimal TAV function requires full stent expansion to its nominal ...

Neurological deficits are a frequent complication of adult cardiac surgery. Dandy-Walker malformation (DWM) is a rare posterior fossa malformation defined by hypoplasia and upward rotation of the cerebellar vermis, cystic dilation of the fourth ventricle and, on occasion, hydrocephalus.

The management of complex aortic pathologies remains a major challenge particularly in the emergency setting. Bespoke fenestrated and branch stent graft technology has shown encouraging short- and mid-term results in selected patients. Despite tremendous technological advances in this field however, factors such as the inherent delay in device manufacturing, anatomical ...

Rupture of a uterine artery pseudoaneurysm is an uncommon, but life-threatening, cause of postpartum hemorrhage. Cesarean delivery is the most common cause. Prompt recognition and management are critical in severe vaginal bleeding. A diagnosis of pseudoaneurysm of the uterine artery can be established radiologically, such as with color Doppler ultrasonography ...

Carotid artery stenting (CAS) has been accepted as a relatively safe and effective treatment modality for patients with symptomatic severe carotid stenosis. We report a rare case of 75-year-old male with spontaneous peritoneal and perirenal hemorrhage following carotid angioplasty with stent. Because this intraabdominal hemorrhage can cause delayed diagnosis and ...

In cases of serious bleeding postpartum, resuscitation and surgical techniques are complementary and should be adapted to both the etiology and severity of bleeding. In extremely severe cases, the performance of a hysterectomy should not be delayed. For women with stable hemodynamic status, so-called "conservative" surgical techniques can instead be ...
