This study describes an alternative arteriovenous fistula (AVF) model in the rat in which the animals develop significant neointimal hyperplasia (NIH) not only at the distal anastomotic site, but also throughout the fistula body. This aortocaval fistula was established by anastomosing the distal end of the renal vein to the ...

We describe a case of successful recanalization of a longstanding right common iliac occlusion with a radiofrequency (RF) guidewire. The patient had been symptomatic with claudication for 3 years, and a preliminary attempt to cross the lesion using conventional techniques proved unsuccessful. Using low and medium intensity RF pulses and a ...

A 50-year-old man showed massive lower gastrointestinal bleeding without a triggering episode. An emergency colonoscopy revealed a protruding vessel in the lower rectum with no active bleeding. No underlying ulcer was seen within the surrounding mucosa. These findings were consistent with rectal Dieulafoy's lesion. Angiography was requested to identify the ...

Fistula aneurysms are commonly seen and usually do not affect fistula function for hemodialysis. However, these aneurysms are associated with complications that increase the risk of fistula bleeding and loss. The common feature of these complications is that the diseased tissues usually affect a localized area of an aneurysm. Accordingly, ...

Treating flush iliac artery occlusion by endovascular means can be very challenging and is a cause of technical failure requiring open surgical intervention. We describe a simple endovascular technique that can be valuable in increasing technical success and avoiding the use of a re-entry device. The technique involves placing an ...

The endowedge technique refers to the use of balloons to align the scallops of the Gore Excluder endoprosthesis (W. L. Gore and Associates, Flagstaff, Ariz) to the renal artery to increase juxtarenal seal during endovascular repair of aneurysms with challenging anatomy. With the availability of a reconstrainable deployment system, this ...

A type-B acute aortic dissection patient required renal artery revascularization for renal artery stenosis resulting from the compression by a false lumen. Renal artery stenting was complicated by unclear opacification of the ostia resulting from the collapsed true lumen of both renal artery and aorta. The use of the "Szabo" ...

Introduction: We report 2 cases where the Outback catheter facilitated extra-anatomical bypass after vessel perforation during attempted subintimal vessel dissection. Report: Attempted subintimal angioplasty of the superficial femoral artery (SFA) resulted in vessel perforation in 2 patients with chronic SFA occlusion and limb ischemia. Due to the lack of other ...

During aortic arch replacement, construction of the distal anastomosis represents the crucial step because of the time limit of circulatory arrest. If the aneurysmal neck is located at the level of the 5(th) thoracic vertebra, it becomes difficult to carry out through a sternotomy approach. We describe a case in ...

To highlight gender-related differences in octogenarians with a congenital coronary artery fistula (CAF). We present two elderly female patients with a congenital fistula, a septuagenarian and a nonagenarian, and review the world literature between 1954-2010. The septuagenarian patient presented with easy fatigability and the nonagenarian patient with acute myocardial infarction ...

The "SAFARI" technique or subintimal arterial flossing with antegrade-retrograde intervention is a method for recanalisation of chronic total occlusions (CTOs) when subintimal angioplasty fails. Retrograde access is usually obtained via the popliteal, distal anterior tibial artery (ATA)/dorsalis pedis (DP), or distal posterior tibial artery (PTA). Distal access via the peroneal ...

Endoscopic hemostasis is a useful treatment modality for gastric ulcer bleeding. However, it is sometimes difficult to achieve hemostasis in cases with arterial bleeding, especially those complicated with vascular abnormalities. We describe a case with gastric ulcer bleeding from a variant left gastric artery accompanied by congenital absence of the ...

PURPOSE: Although left-sided hepatectomy, such as a left hepatectomy or left trisectionectomy with resection of the caudate lobe and extrahepatic bile duct, is used to treat hilar cholangiocarcinoma predominantly involving the left side of the hepatic hilum, it is associated with several difficult technical points. The important points during left-sided ...

BACKGROUND: and Importance: Dural arteriovenous fistulas (dAVF) represent 10-15% of all intracranial arteriovenous malformations. Most often, embolization is accomplished using transfemoral catheter techniques. We present a case in which embolization of a cavernous sinus dAVF was made possible using transcranial cannulation of a cortical draining vein. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: An 82 ...

Endoscopic vein harvest (EVH) has quickly been adopted as the standard-of-care for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Despite clear advantages in terms of wound morbidity, healing, pain, and patient satisfaction, data from recent large clinical trials have called the safety of this technique into question. Post-hoc analyses of a variety ...

We describe a staged resternotomy technique using an inferior T-shaped ministernotomy for three redo cases with a retrosternal aortic arch aneurysm. To minimize the disadvantages of resternotomy during closed-chest hypothermia, an inferior T-shaped ministernotomy was performed before approaching the aneurysm. After establishment of the cardiopulmonary bypass with femoral or axillary ...

We present a modification of the "trap door" technique to treat true venous aneurysms which complicate vascular access arteriovenous fistula. The technique provides wide exposure of the aneurysm, facilitating aneurysmoraphy and permitting the exploitation of any adequate venous length for autologous reconstruction of the venous outflow. Furthermore, by precluding the ...

Access closure is a key element to successful retrograde percutaneous transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve implantation. It requires large-bore femoral arterial access (18Fr-28Fr) which most operators manage with surgical access and closure under general anesthesia. We report a case example of how, using our center's peripheral interventional experience, we have developed ...

BACKGROUND: Stent-assisted coiling is increasingly used to treat wide-neck intracranial aneurysms to protect the lumen of the parent artery from coil protrusion. This technique is insufficient in treating some aneurysms depending on their configurations. OBJECTIVE: To describe a variant of the Y-configuration stent-assisted coiling technique for treatment of basilar tip ...
