A 53-year-old man presented with a high grade stenotic tricuspid bioprosthesis and an inoperable state because of progressive lung disease. Valve replacement was performed transfemorally under local anaesthesia without rapid pacing. Valve positioning was facilitated by the radiopaque frame of the degenerated bioprosthesis. Echocardiography revealed a decrease of peak tricuspid ...

We would like to present a case of branch retinal artery occlusion following uneventful phacoemulsification, possibly caused by sub-Tenon's anaesthesia. There were no predisposing general health problems. There are two possible mechanisms: (1) mechanical effect of the bolus anaesthetic; (2) pharmacologically mediated changes in the vascular calibre. The latter mechanism ...

Deployment of a polytetrafluoroethylene-covered stent is a useful option to seal coronary perforation. However, the high profile and low flexibility compromise its deliverability. To facilitate stent delivery, deep-vessel intubation with a 5 Fr guiding catheter through a 6 or 7 Fr guiding catheter (mother-and-child catheter) has been used. This case ...

Tracheo-innominate artery fistula (TIF) is a serious, life-threatening complication following tracheostomy. We report a fatal TIF in a 15-year-old girl with Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease. She received a tracheostomy for prolonged translaryngeal intubation due to acute respiratory failure without a trial of noninvasive ventilatory support before intubation. Severe hemorrhage from the TIF ...

Indocyanine green (ICG) and fluorescein dyes were inadvertently injected into an antecubital artery during angiography. Apart from a slightly longer arm to retina time, ICG angiography was uneventful. In contrast, intra-arterial injection of fluorescein resulted in a dramatic yellowish discoloration of the arm distal to the injection site that was ...

Accumulation of the lipid-protein complex ceroid is a characteristic of atherosclerotic plaque. The mechanism of ceroid formation has been extensively studied, because the complex is postulated to contribute to plaque irreversibility. Despite intensive research, ceroid deposits are defined through their fluorescence and histochemical staining properties, while their composition remains unknown. ...

BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE: Early origin of the middle cerebral artery M2 segment is a normal variant. When such a vessel is occluded proximally, the parenchyma distal to the vessel may become ischemic. Targeted extracranial to intracranial bypass to such a specific branch may preserve perfusion to the end organ. We ...

Intra-arterial thrombolysis has been advocated for treatment of acute ischemic stroke and several prognostic factors were identified in these patients. Other endovascular methods aiming to recanalize occluded vessels including balloon angioplasty, stenting and use of mechanical clot retrieving devices were devised. To date, this approach is replaced by a multi-modal ...

Microbubbles (MBs) can augment the acoustic cavitation' (US), thereby facilitating the thrombolysis of external ultrasound. But we observed re-thrombosis after successful thrombolysis by MBs and transcutaneous ultrasound in an endothelium injury model. This study was designed to explore whether platelet-targeted MBs can prevent the reformation of thrombi. Arterial injury was ...

We have previously shown that remote ischemic preconditioning (rIPC) by transient limb ischemia leads to the release of a circulating factor(s) that induces potent myocardial protection. Intra-arterial injection of adenosine into a limb also leads to cardioprotection, but the mechanism of its signal transduction is poorly understood. Eleven groups of ...

Endovascular options for therapy for patients with vasospasm after SAH include angioplasty and intra-arterial vasodilator infusion. Preliminary studies of the effects of the calcium channel antagonist verapamil on angiographic vasospasm have yielded mixed and/or qualitative results. In this study, improvement in angiographic vasospasm after intra-arterial verapamil administration is demonstrated with ...

Intra-arterial therapies for unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) consist of a catheter-based group of treatments where therapeutic and/or embolic agents are intra-arterially directed to target tumors. Here we review these therapies, which may be classified into embolotherapy/chemotherapy-based and radiotherapy-based treatments. Embolotherapy/chemotherapy-based treatments include transcatheter arterial embolization, transarterial chemoembolization, transcatheter arterial chemoeinfusion, ...

Various anatomical parameters affect on intra-aneurysmal hemodynamics. Nevertheless, how the shapes of real patient aneurysms affect on their intra-aneurysmal hemodynamics remains unanswered. Quantitative computational fluid dynamics simulation was conducted using eight patients' angiograms of internal carotid artery-ophthalmic artery aneurysms. The mean size of the intracranial aneurysms was 11.5 mm (range ...

Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) is a rare hepatic malignancy that for patients with unresectable disease is uniformly fatal. Only approximately 30% of patients are eligible for resection because of the advanced nature of the disease at the time of diagnosis. Systemic chemotherapy has been disappointing in regard to its efficacy, with ...

Intra-arterial delivery of chemotherapy is a well-established dominant treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). This approach takes advantage of differential blood supply to the cancer, which is arterial, and to the liver, which is predominantly portal. Randomized trials demonstrating survival benefit have used transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) with arrest of blood flow ...

OBJECTIVE: Cerebral vasospasm remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Milrinone, a bipyridine phosphodiesterase III inhibitor, is a potent member of the inodilator class of cardiac agents for vasospasm and is injected intra-arterially or intracisternally. There have been no studies investigating the duration of action (context-sensitive half-life) of milrinone ...
