Pulmonary pseudoaneurysms have been described as an unusual complication of Swan-Ganz catheter placement, tuberculosis, bronchiectasis, aspergillomas, and pulmonary hypertension. Untreated, they may lead to life-threatening hemorrhage. Coil embolization to occlude the pseudoaneurysms is the treatment of choice. This report describes a case in which a pulmonary pseudoaneurysm that likely resulted ...

Rupture of the descending aorta following deceleration trauma is a catastrophic event because it has a high mortality. Prompt surgical treatment is generally considered to be mandatory. However, a few injured patients may leave the hospital with an undiagnosed aortic rupture which may give rise to a chronic pseudoaneurysm. In ...

Endovascular approaches to treat aortic diseases have become an important alternative to open surgical intervention in aortic pathologies. We report a case of an emergency placement of a stent graft in a 16-year-old boy with a contained rupture of an innominate artery pseudoaneurysm. This patient had been previously treated for ...

Behcet's disease (BD) is an autoimmune, multisystemic, and chronic inflammatory disease. Although it affects all systems, involvement of the vascular system is of vital importance. Pseudoaneurysm ruptures in the arteries are the major causes of sudden deaths in BD. Although pseudoaneurysms in aorta and pulmonary arteries are rare, it is ...

We present a case of traumatic pseudoaneurysm of the middle meningeal artery (demonstrated on CT angiogram) associated with epidural hematoma that spontaneously resolved without treatment. Follow-up CT angiogram and conventional angiogram done 2 weeks later demonstrated complete resolution of the pseudoaneurysm. The literature suggests that these lesions require urgent treatment ...

Pseudoaneurysms of the lumbar arteries are infrequent, and are most often found incidentally after trauma to the lumbar spine. More rarely, they are an iatrogenic complication from diagnostic or therapeutic procedures, particularly of the kidney. Their rupture can cause rapid clinical deterioration by retroperitoneal hemorrhage, and therefore their diagnosis and ...

A 68-year-old man being treated for a Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia developed hemoptysis. A transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) and computed tomographic (CT) scan showed a large descending thoracic aorta pseudoaneurysm. The patient died before surgical intervention could be performed. Pathological examination revealed the presence of a saccular pseudoaneurysm originating from a mural ...

We describe a case of a pseudoaneurysm of the pancreaticoduodenal artery in a patient with history of cholecystectomy and chronic pancreatitis. Attempts at transcatheter coil embolotherapy failed because of vessel tortuosity. The lesion was then successfully treated by computed tomography-guided direct percutaneous injection of thrombin into the pseudoaneurysm. This technique ...

BACKGROUND: A postoperative pseudoaneurysm may develop and gradually expand in the mediastinal space even late following Bentall operation for aortic root replacement, particularly in patients with dissection of the aorta. METHODS: A very large (148 mm) pseudoaneurysm originating of the right coronary ostium suture line was observed in a patient ...

Gastrointestinal bleeding is a morbid complication of pancreaticoduodenectomy. Determining its etiology is often a daunting challenge in that both common and unusual mechanisms may be operative. Visceral artery pseudoaneurysms, although rare, must be considered in that minimally invasive means are available for effective therapy. Our recent experience with two cases ...

A 65-year-old woman received a bovine pericardial patch repair with a sutureless technique for a left ventricular free-wall rupture. Three months later the Dor operation was performed for a left ventricular aneurysm. She was admitted again with a mycotic aneurysm 15 months after the Dor operation. Computed tomography suggested a ...

Hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm is an infrequently encountered entity that is usually seen secondary to trauma or surgical procedures. The clinical presentation is often due to complications such as massive intrahepatic or intraperitoneal bleeding as a result of rupture of the pseudoaneurysm into the biliary tree or peritoneal cavity, respectively. Hepatic ...

Our objective was to describe the development of nonobstructive, localized intraarterial thrombi after percutaneous injection of thrombin into femoral pseudoaneurysms. Partial extension of thrombi into the arterial lumen may occur after injection of thrombin into small pseudoaneurysms with short necks. In our experience, this is an asymptomatic and self-limited complication ...

Intravenous or parenteral drug abuse is the most common cause of infected femoral artery pseudoaneurysms (IFAP). This complication of intravenous drug abuse is not only limb threatening but can also be life threatening. The management of IFAP is difficult and controversial. Generally speaking, ligation and excision of the pseudoaneurysm without ...

Pseudoaneurysms of the splanchnic arteries are rare causes of gastrointestinal bleeding. We report a case of a spontaneous gastroduodenal artery false aneurysm ruptured into the duodenum in a patient with hemophilia. The diagnosis was confirmed by spiral computed tomography and magnetic resonance angiography. The patient died from massive gastrointestinal bleeding.

To say that endovascular techniques have revolutionized treatment of aortic aneurysms is an understatement. These same techniques and principles are now being applied to peripheral aneurysms. Because of the small diameter of the arteries in the arm, the relative scarcity of true aneurysms of these arteries, and the fact that ...

Vascular complications of pancreatitis are a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Arterial complications include haemorrhage from direct arterial erosion or pseudoaneurysm formation, and visceral ischaemia. Venous complications predominantly are related to splanchnic vein thrombosis. This review, with illustrative cases, describes the main manifestations of these complications and emphasizes the ...

True aneurysms of the femoral artery are uncommon. They are most often identified in elderly males and are frequently associated with aneurysms at other locations. Femoral artery aneurysms that are symptomatic or larger than 2.5 cm should be repaired in order to prevent limb-threatening complications, such as rupture, thrombosis, or ...

Penetrating gunshot wounds (GSWs) to the abdominal aorta are frequently lethal. Alternative management options for treatment of traumatic pseudoaneurysms of the abdominal aorta are illustrated by three patient case histories. Patient A sustained two GSWs to the abdomen (midepigastrium, right subcostal region). He was hypotensive in the field. Emergent laparotomy ...

BACKGROUND: Intracranial pseudoaneurysms, infrequent vascular lesion in children and adolescents, are characterized by the presence of organizing hematoma and fibrosis outside the true lumen instead of normal vascular elements. Because most pseudoaneurysms result from eminent insults such as major trauma or grave infection, development without preceding incident is extremely rare. ...
