Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) has been one of the most important advances in the management of thoracic aortic disease in the past two decades. The procedure was originally developed by Dake and colleagues in 1994 for the treatment of descending thoracic aortic aneurysm (DTAA), using the same principles as ...

Central venous catheter occlusions disrupt delivery of needed therapies to vulnerable neonatal and young pediatric patients. Nursing practices that minimize risk of catheter occlusion include proper infusion and flushing techniques. Treatment strategies vary on the basis of the source of the occlusion. Mechanical occlusions can often be resolved by altering ...

Osseous sarcoidosis is relatively uncommon, and treatment with corticosteroids is not always effective. Moreover, patients with an advanced stage of pulmonary sarcoidosis are sometimes infected with aspergillus in the cavities of the pulmonary lesions, and long-term use of corticosteroids should be prohibited to prevent the development of fatal invasive pulmonary ...

Descending thoracic dissections originating distal to the origin of the left subclavian artery carry a significant mortality if left untreated. Past thinking advocated avoiding surgical treatment of acute Stanford type B or DeBakey type III dissections, reserving therapy for chronic dissections over 14 days to a month after presentation. The ...

In early embryologic development the sciatic artery provides the blood supply to the lower limb bud. When the femoral artery develops, the sciatic artery involutes. However, in rare cases, the sciatic artery persists. It can be visualised as a prolongation of the inferior gluteal artery (branch of the internal iliac ...

Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA) is a complex cardiac anomaly with an unfavorable natural history. Surgical treatment has been available for over 50 years. Initial procedures used for ccTGA did not correct atrio-ventricular discordance, leaving the right ventricle in systemic position. In the past two decades anatomic ...

Intracranial stenosis is associated with a high risk of ischemic events, even with medical treatment. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and stenting (PTAS) is an accepted intervention for addressing a moderate intracranial stenosis (≥50%) that is refractory to medical treatment. Distal emboli are seen in 34% to 70% of patients on MRI ...

Traditional therapy for pulmonary embolism includes systemic anticoagulation, systemic thrombolysis, catheter-directed thrombolysis / suction catheter thrombectomy, and surgical thromboembolectomy. Currently, the standard treatment for submassive and massive pulmonary embolism involves the use of systemic anticoagulation. However, unlike systemic anticoagulation there is no standard treatment algorithm for the use of thrombolytics ...

The Ross procedure or pulmonary autograft has been frequently used for surgical treatment of aortic valve disease. One considerable disadvantage of the Ross procedure is the involvement of two valves (aortic and pulmonary) in treatment of single (aortic) valve disease. Both the aortic and pulmonary valves are at risk for ...

Renal artery aneurysms (RAA) are rare (general population incidence is 0.09%). At this time, the appropriateness of the type of intervention ‑ surgical or endovascular ‑ is based on single center experiences rather than large randomized trials. Endovascular therapy offers less morbidity but surgery has excellent long-term results. In reality, ...

Arterial ischemic stroke occurs as a result of abnormal clinical circumstances that alter hemostasis and cause thrombosis, either within a vessel or as an embolic event. Understanding normal hemostasis, including differences between children (developmental hemostasis) and adults, will provide background for determining the pathophysiology of stroke and potential treatments.

An anastomotic false aneurysm is a well known complication after femoral artery surgery. Open surgical repair is the treatment of choice for anastomotic femoral aneurysms, but this can be challenging, unsuccessful, or even impossible. Endovascular repair is an alternative in these cases, but the delivery of a stent-graft in the ...

The high rate of restenosis associated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures can be reduced with the implantation of metallic stents into the stenotic vessels. The knowledge that neointimal formation can result in restenosis after stent implantation led to the development of drug-eluting stents (DES) which require long lasting antiplatelet ...
