Background: Atherosclerotic carotid plaque rupture may lead to thromboembolization, causing transient ischemic attack or ischemic stroke. Carotid plaque ulceration on angiography is associated with plaque rupture. Although healing of ruptured plaques has been described in coronary arteries, little is known about the natural development of plaque ulcerations in carotid arteries. ...

Pseudoaneurysm of the thoracic aorta is an extremely rare and potentially fatal condition that can mimic acute coronary syndrome, aortic dissection, or pulmonary embolism. Chest trauma and aortic surgery are the usual predisposing factors. Rarely, noncardiovascular thoracic surgeries can result in aortic pseudoaneurysm secondary to unrecognized perioperative injury. Clinical presentation ...

The surgical correction of ruptured intracranial infectious pseudoaneurysms is associated with high morbidity and mortality. An endovascular therapeutic approach has been introduced recently. This treatment is, compared to surgical intervention, less invasive, faster, more effective and safer, thus making it a gentler option, particularly for pediatric patients. Lower morbidity and ...

Thoracic aortic wall disruptions may occur secondary to trauma, surgical interventions, infection, or autoimmune or idiopathic inflammatory disorders. Such vessel wall disruption can lead to aortic dissections, aneurysm development, or more commonly, pseudoaneurysm (PSA) formation. Although aortic wall infections as an antecedent to mycotic aneurysms have been recognized since the ...
