In order to perform finite element (FE) analyses of patient-specific abdominal aortic aneurysms, geometries derived from medical images must be meshed with suitable elements. We propose a semi-automatic method for generating conforming hexahedral meshes directly from contours segmented from medical images. Magnetic resonance images are generated using a protocol developed ...

We describe the case of a young boy with d-transposition of the great arteries (TGA) that was surgically corrected with an arterial switch operation, who presented with sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) that was successfully ablated at the embryologic pulmonary artery-related sinus of Valsalva (SV). Although the VT mechanism is still ...

A 32-year-old female presented with dysphagia. Radiographic studies revealed external compression of esophagus by a vascular ring. The anatomy was a right-sided aortic arch with aberrant retroesophageal left subclavian artery, emanating from a large Kommerell diverticulum (KD). Traditional repair with ligamentum division and adhesiolysis leaves a large KD still adjacent ...

Intraluminal thrombus (ILT) formation plays a significant role in the progression of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). Potentially, as ILT thickness increases the availability of trace elements in the aneurysm wall could decrease thereby leading to oxidative stress and intensifying pro-inflammatory cytokine generation. To determine if thrombus thickness is related ...

T-tube insertion is effective treatment for subglottic stenosis, but it is generally difficult due to bending of the T-tube. In a 52-year-old woman with relapsing polychondritis, a T-tube was inserted after predilatation using Hegar dilators. We describe the details of our T-tube insertion methods for sclerotic subglottic stenosis.

Anomalies of the membranous portion of the interventricular septum include perimembranous ventricular septal defect and/or membranous septal aneurysm (MSA). In congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (L-TGA in sinus solitus), the combination of ventricular inversion and arterial transposition creates a unique anatomic substrate that fosters subpulmonic left ventricular outflow ...

Congenital division of the left atrium (cor triatriatum) and congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries are both rare congenital cardiac malformations; their coexistence is exceedingly rare with only two previous reports identified in the literature. This combination of lesions is characterized by a pressure-loaded morphologically left ventricle and a ...

Off-label use of the intra-aortic balloon (IAB) is not recommended in ideal situations and certainly not a Food and Drug Administration-approved activity. The instruction-for-use manual for the IAB recommends percutaneous insertion. However, there are certain extreme situations where "thinking outside the box" appears necessary. We have successfully inserted a transthoracic ...

Occult coronary artery obstruction can be a late source of morbidity and mortality following the arterial switch operation for transposition of the great arteries. We describe a case of undiagnosed left coronary ostial obstruction in a teenager which may have contributed to perioperative ventricular dysfunction and subsequent mortality following a ...

A case of femoral artery obstruction following application of a StarClose type arterial puncture closing device (APCD) is presented. Ultrasonographic and angiographic imaging of this complication was obtained. The posterior wall of the vessel was accidentally caught in the anchoring element of the nitinol clip. This complication was successfully resolved ...

Transposition of the great arteries (TGA) in the newborn combined with persistent pulmonary hypertension was reported previously to occur in 3-12 % of full-term neonates with TGA. Right-to-left shunting at the ductal level causes severe hypoxemia despite prostaglandin infusion and balloon atrial septostomy. Although the introduction of inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) ...

Aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) are highly vascular lesions often referred for preoperative transarterial embolization. However, accessible arterial pedicles do not always exist. Two cases are presented of pediatric patients with spinal ABCs in which preoperative embolization was performed by percutaneous injection of up to 31 mL of liquid embolic agent ...

Recent works demonstrated the difference of calcification genesis between carotid and femoral plaques, femoral plaques being more calcified. It has been clearly demonstrated that the molecular triad osteoprotegerin (OPG)/Receptor Activator of NFkB (RANK)/RANK Ligand (RANKL) exerts its activities in the osteoimmunology and vascular system. The aim of this study was ...

OBJECTIVE: Bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) is a major regulator of aortic valve calcification. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are essential post-transcriptional modulators of gene expression and miRNA-141 is a known repressor of BMP-2-mediated osteogenesis. We hypothesized that miRNA-141 is a key regulator of aortic valve calcification. METHODS: Porcine valvular interstitial cells were isolated, ...

The natural history of cerebral aneurysms is thought to be governed by multifactorial processes involving hemodynamics, biomechanics, mechanobiology, and perianeurysmal environment. The purpose of this study was to highlight the importance of considering the influence of contacts with perianeurysmal environment structures on the hemodynamics and geometric evolution of intracranial aneurysms. ...

Pulmonary sequestration is a relatively rare condition in which a systemic artery supplies blood to an abnormal lung tissue. Pulmonary sequestration with an aneurysmal systemic artery is extremely rare. We describe the case of a 52-year-old man with intralobar pulmonary sequestration supplied by an aneurysmal systemic artery. Because the nomenclature ...

Objective. There is a strong need for biomarkers to identify patients at risk for future cardiovascular events related with progressive atherosclerotic disease. Osteoprotegerin (OPG) protects the skeleton from excessive bone resorption by binding to receptor activator of nuclear factor-κB ligand (RANKL) and preventing it from binding to its receptor, receptor ...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Prospective differentiation between reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome and central nervous system vasculitis can be challenging. We hypothesized that high-resolution vessel wall MRI would demonstrate arterial wall enhancement in central nervous system vasculitis but not in reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome. METHODS: We identified all patients with multifocal segmental ...

BACKGROUND. A clear diagnosis of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is still challenging: many patients with unclear compression/duplex-sonography undergo a trial of anticoagulative treatment with the immanent risk of systemic hemorrhagic complications. As contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) has the potential to visualize the blood pool, we conducted this pilot study to ...
