Pedrini L - - 1985
Acute intermittent ischemia is generally caused by altered vasomotion and rarely by aortic dissection. There is reported a case of dissection of the abdominal aorta which presented a mixoid degeneration of the inner wall. The surgical finding was similar to a medio intimal aortic cylinder obtained generally during endarterectomy. Five ...

Endotracheal intubation can occasionally result in acquired subglottic stenosis (ASGS) in infants and children. Twenty-one consecutive patients, ages 3 months to 13 years, with ASGS secondary to endotracheal intubation and severe enough to require tracheotomy, are reviewed. Of this population, eight cases of ASGS were refractory to endoscopic excision and ...

Sixteen patients with Takayasu's aortitis were studied to evaluate the significance of coagulopathy in the etiology. In the initial stage of the disease (three cases) characterized by severe inflammatory symptoms with aortic lesions localized in the thoracic portion, marked hyperfibrinogenemia, and hypofibrinolytic activity of the plasma were observed. In the ...

The efficiency of cross clamping the thoracic aorta for cases of massive hemorrhage and impending cardiac arrest is questionable. We present two cases of major intra-abdominal aortic injury in which the bleeding could not be controlled by cross clamping the thoracic aorta. Multiple collateral pathways around the clamped aorta may ...

A 15-year-old adolescent male with dissecting aortic aneurysm is presented. His young age, lack of predisposing factors, and fulminant course with rapid progression to death precluded a correct antemortem diagnosis. Review of the literature reveals that most instances of dissecting aortic aneurysm in childhood and adolescence are associated with predisposing ...

The spontaneous rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm into an adjacent major venous structure is an unusual occurrence. A case of an aorta-left renal vein fistula is presented, and seven previously reported cases are reviewed. Hemodynamic monitoring as an integral part of patient care is discussed, with emphasis on the ...

Two cases of human copper deficiency following total parenteral nutrition are reported. The clinical, biochemical, and roentgenographic features of the syndrome are discussed and the histologic changes in bone are reviewed. Replacement therapy with copper sulfate rapidly corrects the diverse spectrum of abnormalities in this nutritional disorder.
Kreel L - - 1980
In a review of 260 cases of lymphoma, there were 6 patients with an aneurysm of the abdominal aorta. In four cases there was surrounding abdominal lymphadenopathy. The diagnosis was established by computed tomography (CT) because of calcification in the aortic wall was visible on the scans in all 6 ...
Gupta C L - - 1980
Extended pyelolithotomy for staghorn calculus in a uremic patient with solitary functioning kidney was followed by development of stenosis of the infundibulum draining the superior and middle calyces. Drainage of the lower calyx down the ureter remained intact. Intubated infundibuloplasty proved unsuccessful since scarring and occlusion promptly recurred. Anastomosis of ...

Histologic study of the persistent ductus arteriosus in case of a congenital rubella syndrome revealed that this persistency is probably due to an arrest in the development of the ductus. Histologically, it resembles a very immature ductus and not the most common type of persistent ductus arteriosus. The earlier finding, ...

Chordoma is a slow-growing neoplasm of the axial skeleton. Two cases of lower cervical chordoma are reported, along with a review. Despite combined high voltage radiation therapy and radical surgery chordoma invariably recurs, producing bone erosion and destruction of vital contiguous structures with resulting high morbidity and mortality rates. Computed ...

Three cases are reported of valvular aortic stenosis in which artifactual subvalvular chambers were recorded on pressure tracings. The pressure tracings were obtained during withdrawal of multiholed catheters from the left ventricle to the aortic root. Several recent reports have described the coexistence of valvular and subvalvular aortic stenosis. The ...

Although idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis has been studied extensively, its etiology has remained elusive. Recent reports of its association with neuroectodermal syndrome suggest that at least some cases may be the manifestation of a heritable defect of neuroectoderm. Consistent with this hypothesis, we report a case of idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic ...
