• A direct injury to the artery by a sharp bony fragment can cause laceration and rupture [ 1 ], violent overstretching can result in rupture especially in an atheromatous artery [ 6 ] and another important mechanism of injury is intimal tear and thrombosis. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The artery stretches across the bony fragment, the adventitia remains intact and the fragile intima tears, leading to thrombosis. (biomedcentral.com)
  • How does the safety of this procedure compare against axillary artery cannulation via a vascular graft, in terms of upper limb ischemia and other post-de cannulation complications? (ctsnet.org)
  • There is increasing trend towards endovascular management of vascular injuries, and gunshot injuries of the axillary artery have also been managed using stent graft [ 10 ] in stable patients. (hindawi.com)
  • Proximal humerus fractures are rarely associated with axillary artery injury. (hindawi.com)
  • Axillary artery was contused and totally occluded by fractured edge of humerus. (hindawi.com)
  • Injuries of the axillary artery are not common [ 1 , 2 ] and fractures of the upper end of the humerus/humerus neck are rarely associated with injuries of the axillary artery [ 3 , 4 ], probably due to the abundance of loose connective tissue and soft tissue space in the axilla along with absence of tight compartments. (hindawi.com)
  • Minimally displaced fractures of the surgical neck of the humerus are rarely associated with axillary artery injury. (biomedcentral.com)
  • This printed 3D left shoulder specimen consists of the scapula, humerus (sectioned near midshaft) and clavicle (sectioned at midshaft) with the superficial muscles around the shoulder joint, the rotator cuff muscles and the axillary artery as it progresses distally to become the brachial artery.

  • Urgent surgical intervention was done in the form of fixation of fracture followed by exploration and repair of axillary artery. (hindawi.com)
  • Surgical exposure of the axillary artery is an alternative solution, but fully percutaneous axillary access may also be feasible. (onlinejacc.org)
  • The procedure code 03160ZT is in the medical and surgical section and is part of the upper arteries body system, classified under the bypass operation. (icdlist.com)
  • Instead, conventional surgical aortic valve replacement was planned with bilateral axillary artery cannulation and short-term moderate hypothermic circulatory arrest for cross-clamping of the severely calcified ascending aorta. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The indirect approach: the artery is approached indirectly by first sewing an 8 mm graft to the artery and then cannulating the graft. (ctsnet.org)
  • Implants were evenly split between right and left arms with the majority (86%) implanted in the first segment of the axillary (infraclavicular chest) and the remainder implanted infra-pectoral. (onlinejacc.org)
  • Posteriorly it corresponds to a quantity of areolar tissue lying between the artery and sub-scapularis muscle. (bookdome.com)
  • Scapular fracture, shoulder dislocation, and fracture clavicle are other injuries which can be associated with axillary artery injuries. (hindawi.com)
  • He successfully underwent aortic valve replacement with bilateral axillary artery cannulation and short-term moderate hypothermic circulatory arrest for cross-clamping of a severely calcified aorta to prevent neurological complications. (biomedcentral.com)
  • As a result of this attachment, the axillary artery is more easily palpated in the concavity of the axilla when the upper arm is adducted (close to the midline of the body) and the suspensory ligaments are relaxed, than when it is abducted (away from the midline of the body) and the suspensory ligaments are taut.

  • The Axillary access Registry to Monitor Safety [ARMS] is a prospective multicenter registry of percutaneous upper extremity access for mechanical circulatory support devices to evaluate the procedural and short term safety of such an approach. (onlinejacc.org)
