The authors recently showed that the retinal circulation can be accessed by transfemoral endovascular catheterization. The purpose of this study was to examine whether endovascular coiling can be used to induce different degrees of ischemic injury. The possibility of creating occlusions at different sites in the vasculature to cause retinal ...

Transfusion-related acute lung injury is a potentially fatal complication of blood and plasma transfusion; however, the incidence relating to platelet use in cardiac surgery is uncommon. In the presence of normal left ventricular function, an acute increase in pulmonary capillary permeability leads to a high protein content pulmonary edema, which ...

Nonoperative management of blunt splenic injury is the treatment of choice in hemodynamically stable patients. Detection of vascular injury by multidetector CT (MDCT) is the most significant factor predicting the need for endovascular treatment. This study evaluated the timing of the appearance of vascular lesions during angiography. Images from 20 ...

Previous observational studies suggest that children with hand ischemia following elbow trauma can be safely observed if Doppler signals are present in the wrist arteries (pink pulseless hand, PPH). Nonoperative management of PPH is predicated on the assumption that PPH results from local arterial spasm, but the mechanism of arterial ...

morbidity and mortality after conventional surgery of aortic arch aneurysms remain high. Alternative techniques are the subject of this report. open surgery requires cardiopulmonary bypass and hypothermic circulatory arrest. Thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair has a less invasive therapeutic alternative. The number of high-risk patients has considerably increased over the past ...

The explosion in endovascular interventions for peripheral vascular disease has resulted in procedures being used by a multitude of specialties. Nonvascular surgeons performing these interventions can create scenarios that may make future vascular interventions difficult. In this article, we present a case report illustrating this point. A 68-year-old man with ...

Pulmonary edema worsens the morbidity and increases the mortality of critically ill patients. Mechanistically, edema formation in the lung is a result of net flow across the alveolar capillary membrane, dependent on the relationship of hydrostatic and oncotic pressures. Traditionally, the contribution of acute kidney injury (AKI) to the formation ...

Inflammation plays a pivotal role in all stages of atherosclerosis. Since edema is known to be an integral part of inflammation, a noninvasive technique that can identify edema in the coronary artery wall may provide unique information regarding plaque activity. In this study, we aimed to determine whether edema induced ...

Emerging evidence of histopathological analyses suggests that endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) play an important role in vascular diseases. Neointimal hyperplasia can be reduced by intravenous transfusion of EPCs after vascular injury in mice. Therefore, it would be advantageous to develop an in vivo technique that can explore the temporal and ...

An aortic valve tear associated with aortic regurgitation following blunt chest trauma is seldom seen. In this case, a 55-year-old man sustained a non-penetrating chest injury caused by a sudden fall from 10 meters. This led to a sizable tear in the left coronary cusp associated with severe aortic insufficiency. ...

In the last decade, moderate hypothermia has become the mainstay of treatment in the post-resuscitation period. However, for the damaged brain, optimizing oxygen transport, including arterial oxygenation, may also be important. The current view states that hyperoxia in the immediate post-resuscitation period may worsen cerebral outcome, and international guidelines recommend ...

Patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are predisposed to cardiovascular events and often experience continual expansion of their aneurysm. Cardiovascular events and expansion rates are positively correlated with aneurysm size. AAA is usually associated with intraluminal thrombus, which has previously been implicated in AAA pathogenesis. This study prospectively assessed the ...

Endograft mal-deployment during endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) may cause renal artery (RA) occlusion. We report bilateral RA occlusion following insertion of an endograft with suprarenal barb fixation. Attempted salvage using the 'pull-down' technique caused right RA dissection. Despite bilateral RA stenting, the right kidney was atrophic on an ultrasound scan ...

Descending thoracic aortic aneurysms (dTAA) comprise 40% of all aneurysms arising from the thoracic aorta. Because rupture of thoracic aneurysms is associated with a 94% mortality rate, timely detection, surveillance and treatment is imperative. Endovascular stent-graft repair of thoracic aneurysms was first performed in 1992 and has become an accepted ...

The US Food and Drug Administration approved the first thoracic aneurysm endograft in 2005. However, because the United States lacks a thoracic aneurysm endovascular repair registry, implications of Food and Drug Administration endograft approval on surgical management of thoracic aneurysms in clinical practice are unknown. Retrospective review of thoracic aneurysm ...
