Spontaneous aortocaval fistulas are rare and thoracoabdominal aneurysms eroding into the inferior vena cava are rarer still. We describe a patient who presented to our hospital with a fistula between a Type IV thoracoabdominal aneurysm and the inferior vena cava. Expanding endovascular capabilities of vascular surgeons enabled us to insert ...

Although rare in most countries, membranous obstruction of the inferior vena cava (MOIVC) occurs more frequently in Nepal, South Africa, Japan, India, China, and Korea. The occlusive lesion always occurs at approximately the level of the diaphragm. It commonly takes the form of a membrane, but may be a fibrotic ...

Cerebral emboli and abscesses are common complications in patients with cyanotic congenital heart disease and right-to-left shunt. Of those, a persistent left superior vena cava (LSVC) draining into the left atrium, directly or through an unroofed coronary sinus, is a rather rare finding. In order to prevent recurrent cerebral emboli ...

AIMS: To investigate whether a passive electrode effect decreases defibrillation threshold (DFT) in multi-filament middle cardiac vein (MCV) defibrillation. METHODS AND RESULTS: Twelve pigs underwent active housing (AH) insertion, with defibrillation coils placed transvenously in right ventricular apex and superior vena cava. The MCV was cannulated, and 1.12F, 50 mm ...

The persistence of a left superior vena cava (LSVC) is an intrinsically cardiac anomaly, which can lead to serious complications during catheterization via the subclavian or internal jugular vein. We found this anomaly during dissection associated with an abnormal origin of the vertebral artery originating from the aortic arch between ...

Sinus venosus defects are not atrial septal defects, but are intra-atrial communications outside of the boundaries of the atrial septum. The superior type is located above and separate from the fossal ovalis, usually adjacent to the superior vena cava and the right upper pulmonary vein. The inferior type is located ...

Atypical right-to-left shunts following Fontan surgery were closed by transcatheter techniques using various devices in 4 patients. Three had variants of hypoplastic left heart syndrome, while the other had tricuspid atresia. Large Fontan baffle leaks were present in 2, a residual fistula from the inferior vena cava to the coronary ...

Inferior vena cava filters provide an alternative method of protection against pulmonary embolism in situations where anticoagulation either fails or is contraindicated. These filters are easily placed, with a relatively minor risk of complications. Currently, we know of only one reported case of filter migration using the TrapEase filter. We ...

Asymptomatic deep venous thrombosis (DVT) has been reported in 60% to 100% of persons with spinal cord injury (SCI). Several guidelines have been published detailing recommended venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis after acute SCI. Low-molecular-weight heparin, intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) devices, and/or graduated compression stockings are recommended. Vena cava filters (VCFs) ...

We describe a case of retroperitoneal leiomyosarcoma with extra- and intravascular involvement. The patient presented with abdominal aortic rupture secondary to tumor invasion and extensive tumor thrombus in the inferior vena cava. The presence of a rupture of the abdominal aorta is an important radiologic diagnosis to make because early ...

OBJECTIVE: We sought to examine midterm results of the Fontan operation with an extracardiac conduit using pedicled autologous pericardial roll, with special attention to angiographic evaluation of serial changes in conduit geometry. METHODS: Of 202 patients subjected to the Fontan operation since 1996, the conduit was used in 28 patients ...

BACKGROUND: Despite significant risk for venous thromboembolism, severely injured trauma patients often are not candidates for prophylaxis or treatment with anticoagulation. Long-term inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are associated with increased risk of postphlebitic syndrome. Retrievable IVC filters potentially offer a better solution, but only if the filter is removed; ...

Pulmonary emboli, a potentially lethal venous thromboembolic complication, is a potentially preventable morbidity or mortality that surgeons should consider in the perioperative period or in high-risk patients. Prophylactic inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placement offers a high protection rate against fatal pulmonary emboli. This manuscript discusses the indications for filter ...

Absence of isolated infrarenal inferior vena cava (IVC) is a rare condition documented in only a few published cases and typically treated with anticoagulation. We herein describe successful surgical management of the isolated infrarenal IVC absence in a healthy 35-year-old woman who presented with disabling pelvic congestion. An ascending venogram ...

The inferior alveolar artery is the major blood supply to the mandible and mandibular teeth. This artery has a very consistent path, originating from the maxillary artery and passing inferiorly until it enters the mandibular foramen, accompanied by the inferior alveolar nerve and vein. During routine dissection of a 90-year-old ...

The presence of isolated interrupted inferior vena cava (IVC) is very rare. Though the occurrence of typical atrial flutter in this setting has recently been described, the use of 3-dimensional activation mapping to aid the management of such patients has not yet been described. We report the successful ablation of ...

Bilateral unusual coursed ovarian arteries were found in a 45-year-old female cadaver. The ovarian arteries arose from the abdominal aorta at a level inferior to the corpus of L1 vertebra bilaterally. The right ovarian artery was coursing behind the inferior vena cava. The left one was coursing between the left ...

Duplications of the inferior vena cava (IVC) are seen with an incidence of 0.2% to 3.0%. Duplications causing symptoms are rare, with only six reported cases of IVC duplication associated with a deep venous thrombosis. We present a 78-year-old caucasian woman with an IVC duplication who developed a deep venous ...
