We report on an emergent use of hepatic-to-azygous vein connection using a 10-mm polytetrafluoroethylene graft in a 6-year-old girl who developed acute thrombosis of an extracardiac graft conduit from the hepatic veins to the pulmonary arteries. She had left atrial isomerism, interrupted inferior vena cava with azygous continuation, and had ...

Hepatic artery thrombosis is a major problem after pediatric liver transplantation. Ischemia caused by hepatic artery thrombosis results in severe biliary and parenchymal damage and is associated with high rates of graft loss and mortality. We present a case-based pictorial essay to illustrate the role of minimally invasive treatment in ...

Vascular variations in and around the porta hepatis are common. A sound knowledge of possible variations at these sites is vital for surgeons during laparoscopic cholecystectomy and surgical resection of the liver lobes. We report the case of several variations of the hepatic and cystic arteries in which, the common ...

In partial liver transplantation, reconstruction of the hepatic artery is technically highly demanding and the incidence of arterial complications is high. We attempted to identify the risk factors for anastomotic complications after hepatic artery reconstruction and examined the role of multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) in the evaluation of the reconstructed ...

Hepatic artery aneurysms are uncommon and account for 20% of visceral aneurysms. Some authors consider endovascular procedures as the first line treatment for most hepatic artery aneurysms, being the conventional surgery reserved for unstable ruptured aneurysms or if the anatomy is unsuitable for endovascular repair. In this report, we describe ...

Abstract Hepatic artery aneurysms are responsible for 12% to 20% of all visceral arterial aneurysms. Because most patients are asymptomatic, this disease is generally diagnosed incidentally during radiologic examination. Aneurysm rupture develops in 14% to 80% of cases, depending on the aneurysmatic segment's diameter and location, as well as other ...

Variations in celiac and hepatic vasculature are common and reported in one in five individuals. We report a rare case of a retroportal proper hepatic artery arising from a celiac trunk with quadruple branching associated with an intraperitoneal duodenum, pancreas and ascending colon. In addition, accessory left hepatic artery arose ...

Dissection of the common hepatic artery is a rare complication after orthotopic liver transplant. Subsequent thrombosis and occlusion of the transplant artery can result in graft failure requiring retransplant. We describe a case of hepatic artery dissection, occurring on the basis of primary vasculopathy, extending into the celiac trunk, with ...

The gross anatomical structure of the ringed seal (Pusa hispida) gastrointestinal tract is poorly described and often veterinary anatomical terminology is not used. Although the basic abdominal visceral pattern corresponded to domestic carnivores, significant differences were noted. The stomach was an elongated sharply bent tube (u-shaped) with the pylorus and ...

Arterial revascularization during liver transplantation is normally achieved by anastomosing the graft hepatic artery to the largest artery available at the recipient pedicle-either the common hepatic artery (CHA) or an accessory right hepatic artery (RHA) originating from the superior mesenteric artery (SMA). When a small caliber RHA is present, the ...

Variations on the anatomy of the hepatic artery are common, with incidence of 20-50%. In liver transplantation, back-table reconstruction is often necessary for an easier and prompt arterial anastomosis and so, the use of arterial patches has been related to lower the incidence of complications. However, when a right hepatic ...

A hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm is, by definition, a pulsatile hematoma due to a leakage of blood through a tear or disruption of the arterial wall, and the blood is contained only by the hepatic parenchyma or surrounding hematoma. It can be a very rare cause of gastrointestinal system bleeding. These ...

Descriptions of the variant hepatic arterial pattern are common and frequently reported in anatomy archives. We describe a noteworthy deviation from the usual branching pattern in a single cadaver. There was a unique division of the hepatic artery proper into two right gastric arteries (RGAs), apart from the usual branches. ...

Liver transplantation is the only solution for end-stage liver diseases. The common hepatic artery (CHA) arises from the coeliac trunk (CT), and the right (RHA) and left hepatic (LHA) arteries are its terminal branches. An abnormal arterial pattern would influence the surgical outcome. The anterior layer of the lesser omentum ...

Radioembolization offers a novel way to treat the nonresectable, liver predominant hepatic malignancies with better tumor response and overall progression-free survival rates. Transarterial catheter-based radioembolization procedure involves the hepatic arterial administration of glass- or resin-based beta emitting Yttirum-90 microspheres. Safe delivery of the tumoricidal radiation dose requires careful angiogram planning ...

Kawasaki disease is recognized as the most common cause of acquired heart disease in children in the developed world. Clinical, epidemiologic, and pathologic evidence supports an infectious agent, likely entering through the lung. Pathologic studies proposing an acute coronary arteritis followed by healing fail to account for the complex vasculopathy ...

Technical problems such as graft and vascular size are more common in living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) than in deceased donor liver transplantation. It is usually possible to get enough length of vessels on the graft, but the opposite situation is devastating. Finding the suitable vessel graft is life-saving in ...

Major intracranial arteries can be injured during tumor removal. Surgeons routinely manage this event by using either microvascular direct repair, by-pass of the wounded segment or the placement of a sutureless device. These procedures, however, are not always possible due to artery brittleness, deep operating field, vascular configuration, or restricted ...

During the progression from low-grade dysplastic nodule (DN) to progressed hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), intranodular portal tracts gradually disappear, while unpaired arteries develop increasingly. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) is highly accurate in depicting intranodular vascularity. This study evaluates the usefulness of CEUS in the characterization of DN, early HCC and progressed HCC ...

Missile embolism into the cerebral circulation is a very unusual complication of shotgun wounds to the chest or neck. We report a case of an 11-year-old boy who sustained an air gunshot wound and pellet embolism to the intracranial carotid artery. The cerebral artery pellet embolus resulted in contralateral hemiplegia. ...
