Inferior pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysms in association with celiac stenosis or occlusion are well described in the literature. These aneurysms are true aneurysms and develop as a result of increased flow through the pancreaticoduodenal arcades in the presence of hemodynamically significant stenosis of the celiac axis or common hepatic artery. Aneurysms ...

Aortic arch aneurysms induce great morbidity and mortality especially when clinical signs of rupture are present. Surgical indications for repair in the high-risk octogenarian population are controversial. We present the case of an 87-year-old man with a ruptured aortic arch aneurysm with a good surgical outcome. We discuss the clinical ...

The left aortic arch with an aberrant right subclavian artery, or arteria lusoria, is the most common aortic arch anomaly, occuring in 0.5-2.5% of individuals. Four vessels arise sequentially from the aortic arch: the right common carotid artery, the left common carotid artery, the left subclavian artery and the aberrant ...

Spontaneous calcific embolism is an uncommon cause of stroke. In most cases calcified cardiac valves are the sources of the emboli although embolization of calcific material from the brachiocephalic trunk has also been described. We report a case of stroke attributable to spontaneous calcific emboli from the aortic arch in ...

We describe successful primary repair of 2 cases of transposition complex with aortic arch obstruction. A new aortic arch was reconstructed by direct anastomosis between the well-mobilized ascending aorta and the descending aorta. The neoaortic root with transferred coronary arteries was subsequently anastomosed to the undersurface of this new aortic ...

A 71-year-old man presented with severe aortic stenosis and a heavily calcified aorta. Cardiopulmonary bypass was established with arterial cannula via the distal aortic arch. Deep hypothermic circulatory arrest and retrograde cerebral perfusion were initiated for excision of the ascending aorta. A tube graft was anastomosed to the proximal aortic ...

Thoracic endovascular aortic reconstruction (TEVAR) is increasingly used in the management of descending aortic pathology including aneurysms, dissections and transaction. When treating aortic arch pathology, hybrid procedures have been devised, in which major supra-aortic arteries are translocated using a variety of techniques. Such hybrid procedures offer an attractive alternative to ...

A floating thrombus within the aortic arch is a rare condition that is generally detected after cerebral, visceral, or peripheral embolization. Endovascular exclusion of such mobile thrombus has been described but exclusively involved the descending aorta, or debranching of the supra-aortic trunk was done by open surgical bypass procedure. We ...

For aneurysms and dissections involving the aortic arch, the traditional treatment is open surgical repair requiring cardiopulmonary bypass and deep hypothermic circulatory arrest. Reported mortality rates range from 7% to 17% and neurologic injury rates range from 4% to 12%. Since the first clinical applications of endovascular repair in the ...

Interrupted aortic arch (IAA) and aortopulmonary window (APW) are rare but well-described congenital malformations. However, coexistence of these anomalies in young adults is an unusual event. Patients rarely reach adulthood without surgical correction in the neonatal period. The authors describe a 20-year-old patient, who presented with exertional dyspnea and was ...

We report a newborn male who was diagnosed with a double inlet left ventricle with pulmonary atresia antenatally. Postnatally, it was difficult to determine his arch anatomy echocardiographically. Therefore, he underwent three-dimensional computed tomography angiography, which confirmed the echocardiographic findings and demonstrated a bovine aortic arch. He additionally had a ...

INTRODUCTION: Two and a half million Americans with atrial fibrillation are at an elevated risk for embolic stroke. Warfarin therapy is standard treatment for high-risk patients, yet 40-65% of elderly patients do not receive anticoagulation therapy due to bleeding complications. To address this clinical need, we are evaluating a minimally ...

We investigated a non-human primate (NHP) transient global ischemia (TGI) model which was induced by clipping the arteries originating from the aortic arch. Previously we demonstrated that our TGI model in adult Rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) results in marked neuronal cell loss in the hippocampal region, specifically the cornu Ammonis ...

Open surgical total aortic arch replacement is a demanding procedure which carries a substantial morbidity and mortality. A less invasive endovascular option is endovascular stent grafting using in situ fenestrations. After thoracic stent graft deployment in the arch, fenestrations are made for the major arch vessels. During this procedure, antegrade ...

A 66-year-old woman presented with cardiac tamponade. Pericardiocentesis revealed purulent pericarditis. Enhanced computed tomography showed a saccular aneurysm of the aortic arch. An irregularly shaped and partially enhanced mass was seen adjacent to the aneurysm, which suggested development of a mycotic pseudoaneurysm. Surgical drainage was performed through a subxiphoid incision, ...

We describe the findings in a neonate with aortic atresia, interruption of the aortic arch between the carotid arteries, and aortopulmonary window. This unusual association changes the anticipated physiology, and helps in the survival. We emphasize the fact that this combination simulates common arterial trunk, both clinically and on echocardiography.

A 61-year-old man presented with multiple episodes of hemoptysis. A computed tomography scan revealed a 70-mm saccular aneurysm of the distal aortic arch. During a surgical repair via a midline sternotomy and a left thoracotomy, a saccular aneurysm was found to protrude into the lung, which had chronically healed. The ...

Malformation of the aortic arch system has been described in details by Stewart et al. in 1964. Innominate artery originating via the ductus arteriosus from the pulmonary artery is a very rare type of congenital aortic arch anomaly that has been seldomly reported. We report the case of an aortic ...

Aorticopulmonary paraganglioma is a rare tumor of the middle mediastinum. Complete surgical resection is the only effective treatment, even when it may pose a surgical challenge due to the proximity of the tumor to the heart and great vessels, often rendering complete resection difficult to achieve. We report the case ...

The middle-third of the patellar tendon (PT) is well-established as a potential graft for cruciate ligament reconstruction, but there is little anatomical basis for its use. Although studies on PT vascular anatomy have focused on the risk to tendon pedicles from surgical approaches and knee pathophysiology, the significance of its ...
