Background Coiling of small aneurysms can be technically challenging. These aspects of coiling tend to be less problematic in medium to large aneurysms as they are more accommodating of microcatheters and coils. When physicians are asked their opinion regarding aneurysm coilability in small aneurysms, the decision often lies in the ...

Introduction: Radial artery access for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures offers clear advantages in terms of vascular complications. While radial artery occlusion may occasionally complicate radial artery access, new methods of hemostasis are now utilized to avoid this complication. In contrast, pseudoaneurysm following radial artery access is an extremely uncommon complication. ...

Recently, extra-anatomical bypass surgery has been widely used in complicated adult aortic coarctation cases with concomitant intracardiac repair. Stent implantation has been widely used for primary aortic coarctation as well. The procedure has been shown to be effective with long term follow ups. However, failed stent implantations like stent fracture ...

Venous aneurysms are uncommon but they can have devastating consequences, including pulmonary embolism, other thromboembolic events and death. We report six cases of venous aneurysm of the extremities, in which the first sign of presence was acute pulmonary embolism. Surgical resection is recommended whenever possible. Our experience suggests that prophylactic ...

We implanted a Cypher Select™ coronary stent and two months later a Nevo™ sirolimus-eluting coronary stent in another vessel. At a prescheduled angiographic follow-up, coronary aneurysms were seen in the two stented segments, 6 and 8 months after stent implantation, respectively. Six months later, the aneurysm had healed in the ...

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and the consequently developed pulmonary embolism are devastating complications in orthopedic surgery. DVT occurs less frequently (1-2% of all cases) in the upper extremity than the lower extremity. We report a 54-year-old male patient who developed DVT and pulmonary thromboembolism after surgical treatment of an ulnar ...

Levoatriocardinal vein (LACV) is characterized by an abnormal connection between pulmonary and systemic venous return. This extremely rare cardiac malformation is usually associated with left-sided obstructive lesions including mitral atresia, hypoplastic left-heart syndrome, and abnormal pulmonary venous connection. Patients may have low systemic cardiac output and pulmonary venous obstruction symptoms. ...

Entrapment of catheter components during cardiac interventions is rare but can cause life-threatening complications and sometimes requires emergency surgical treatment. This case study describes a 52-year-old male who had unstable angina pectoris and underwent stent insertion into the left circumflex artery. Unfortunately, the coronary stent and the balloon catheter were ...

Pulmonary vein isolation has become the cornerstone of ablation for atrial fibrillation. However, it is sometimes followed by the development of left atrial macro-reentrant tachycardia. There is evidence to suggest that the myocardial sleeves within the pulmonary veins may be implicated in the mechanism of the tachycardia. Here we present ...

Aneurysmal disease in the venous system is uncommon. The majority of venous aneurysms occur in peripheral vessels. Visceral venous aneurysms (VVA) are rare, the most common being portal mesenteric vein aneurysms. Because of their rare nature, limited information concerning the natural history, presentation, and management of VVA is known. Many ...

Superior mesenteric artery (SMA) aneurysms are rare but associated with significant mortality (25-40%) when complicated by rupture or thrombosis. Symptomatic SMA aneurysms, asymptomatic aneurysms of ≥2 cm size and pseudoaneurysms need intervention. We report a case of a 6.5-cm symptomatic SMA aneurysm managed by open surgical repair. At intraoperative exploration, ...
