Most common are the saccular (berry) aneurysms located at branch points in CIRCLE OF WILLIS at the base of the brain. Vessel rupture results in SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Giant aneurysms (>2.5 cm in diameter) may compress adjacent structures, including the OCULOMOTOR NERVE. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p841)Aneurysm: Pathological outpouching or sac-like dilatation in the wall of any blood vessel (ARTERIES or VEINS) or the heart (HEART ANEURYSM).

Blood-filled aneurysms are dangerous because they may burst. Fibrous aneurysms interfere with the heart function through the loss of contractility. True aneurysm is bound by the vessel wall or cardiac wall. False aneurysms are HEMATOMA caused by myocardial rupture.Aortic Aneurysm, Thoracic: An abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of the THORACIC AORTA.

The value of late computed tomographic scanning in identification of vascular abnormalities after abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. (1/810)

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of late arterial abnormalities after aortic aneurysm repair and thus to suggest a routine for postoperative radiologic follow-up examination and to establish reference criteria for endovascular repair. METHODS: Computed tomographic (CT) scan follow-up examination was obtained at 8 to 9 years after abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair on a cohort of patients enrolled in the Canadian Aneurysm Study. The original registry consisted of 680 patients who underwent repair of nonruptured AAA. When the request for CT scan follow-up examination was sent in 1994, 251 patients were alive and potentially available for CT scan follow-up examination and 94 patients agreed to undergo abdominal and thoracic CT scanning procedures. Each scan was interpreted independently by two vascular radiologists. RESULTS: For analysis, the aorta was divided into five defined segments and an aneurysm was defined as a more than 50% enlargement from the expected normal value as defined in the reporting standards for aneurysms. With this strict definition, 64.9% of patients had aneurysmal dilatation and the abnormality was considered as a possible indication for surgical repair in 13.8%. Of the 39 patients who underwent initial repair with a tube graft, 12 (30.8%) were found to have an iliac aneurysm and six of these aneurysms (15.4%) were of possible surgical significance. Graft dilatation was observed from the time of operation (median graft size of 18 mm) to a median size of 22 mm as measured by means of CT scanning at follow-up examination. Fluid or thrombus was seen around the graft in 28% of the cases, and bowel was believed to be intimately associated with the graft in 7%. CONCLUSION: Late follow-up CT scans after AAA repair often show vascular abnormalities. Most of these abnormalities are not clinically significant, but, in 13.8% of patients, the thoracic or abdominal aortic segment was aneurysmal and, in 15.4% of patients who underwent tube graft placement, one of the iliac arteries was significantly abnormal to warrant consideration for surgical repair. On the basis of these findings, a routine CT follow-up examination after 5 years is recommended. This study provides a population-based study for comparison with the results of endovascular repair.  (+info)

Video-assisted crossover iliofemoral obturator bypass grafting: a minimally invasive approach to extra-anatomic lower limb revascularization. (2/810)

Graft infection continues to be one of the most feared complications in vascular surgery. It can lead to disruption of anastomoses with life-threatening bleeding, thrombosis of the bypass graft, and systemic septic manifestations. One method to ensure adequate limb perfusion after removal of an infected aortofemoral graft is extra-anatomical bypass grafting. We used a minimally invasive, video-assisted approach to implant a crossover iliofemoral obturator bypass graft in a patient with infection of the left limb of an aortofemoral bifurcated graft. This appears to be the first case report describing the use of this technique.  (+info)

Three ventriculoplasty techniques applied to three left-ventricular pseudoaneurysms in the same patient. (3/810)

A 59-year-old male patient underwent surgery for triple-vessel coronary artery disease and left-ventricular aneurysm in 1994. Four months after coronary artery bypass grafting and classical left-ventricular aneurysmectomy (with Teflon felt strips), a left-ventricular pseudoaneurysm developed due to infection, and this was treated surgically with an autologous glutaraldehyde-treated pericardium patch over which an omental pedicle graft was placed. Two months later, under emergent conditions, re-repair was performed with a diaphragmatic pericardial pedicle graft due to pseudoaneurysm reformation and rupture. A 3rd repair was required in a 3rd episode 8 months later. Sternocostal resection enabled implantation of the left pectoralis major muscle into the ventricular defect. Six months after the last surgical intervention, the patient died of cerebral malignancy. Pseudoaneurysm reformation, however, had not been observed. To our knowledge, our case is the 1st reported in the literature in which there have been 3 or more different operative techniques applied to 3 or more distinct episodes of pseudoaneurysm formation secondary to post-aneurysmectomy infection. We propose that pectoral muscle flaps be strongly considered as a material for re-repair of left-ventricular aneurysms.  (+info)

Pseudoaneurysm of the vertebral artery. (4/810)

Pseudoaneurysms of the vertebral artery are rare. Their treatment depends on the location, size, cause, and coexisting injuries.

Feasibility of three-dimensional intravascular ultrasonography: preliminary clinical studies. (5/810)

The aim of this study was to demonstrate the clinical utility of reconstructed three-dimensional intravascular ultrasonography using a voxel-based volume rendering technique. Three-dimensional reconstruction of intravascular ultrasonographic data was performed in 12 patients with various vascular abnormalities during interventional radiology procedures. A stepping motor device was used to pull either a 12.5 or a 20 MHz catheter-based transducer through the lumen of a variety of vessels at a rate of 1.5 mm/s. Images were downloaded to a Life Imaging System for three-dimensional reconstruction. The value of three-dimensional ultrasonographic imaging was evaluated in comparison to conventional intravascular ultrasonography. A variety of abnormalities were demonstrated in reconstructed three-dimensional ultrasound imaging, including arterial atheroma and plaque, aneurysm and pseudoaneurysm, aortic dissection and stenosis (May-Thurner syndrome). The vascular branches and accessory vessels, as well as their relationships to each other, were easily demonstrated on three-dimensional imaging by selecting an appropriate angle, plane, and section of the image. The dimensions and shapes of the vascular lumen were determined in the longitudinal view. Three-dimensional information proved useful for determining the distribution and type of plaque in vessels. Reconstructed three-dimensional imaging allows for global evaluation of the dissection entry site, extent of the flap, and the false lumen of a pseudoaneurysm. Intravascular three-dimensional ultrasonography provides information complementary to that obtained with two-dimensional imaging. It supplies information about spatial relationships of anatomic structures that cannot be evaluated using conventional imaging methods.  (+info)

True and anastomotic femoral artery aneurysms: is the risk of rupture and thrombosis related to the size of the aneurysms? (6/810)

OBJECTIVE: the management of asymptomatic femoral aneurysms remains controversial. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relation between the diameter of true and anastomotic aneurysms and the risk of rupture. DESIGN: retrospective study. MATERIAL AND METHODS: we reviewed the case records of 17 patients who underwent 17 arterial reconstructive procedures for true femoral aneurysms. In addition, the case records of 76 patients who underwent 90 arterial reconstructive procedures for femoral anastomotic aneurysms were identified and reviewed. RESULTS: the rupture rate for aneurysms less than 5 cm in diameter was 1.6% (one out of 64) compared with 16% (seven out of 43) for those larger than 5 cm. The thrombosis rate for aneurysms less than 5 cm in diameter was 17% compared with 5% for those larger than 5 cm. CONCLUSIONS: this study seems to show that the risk of rupture of femoral artery aneurysms is related to the diameter of the aneurysms. However, the rise in the risk of rupture with increasing size seems less dramatic than for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA).  (+info)

Pseudoaneurysm of the subclavian artery due to Xanthomonas pneumonia in a patient with acute myeloid leukemia: its rupture treated by transcatheter coil embolization. (8/810)

A 52-year-old male with acute myeloid leukemia developed pseudoaneurysm of the subclavian artery. Pneumonia due to Xanthomonas maltophilia, which was multi-drug resistant, progressed to a lung abscess even under administration of antibiotics. This lung infection contiguous to the left carotid and subclavian arteries was suggested to have caused the pseudoaneurysm of the subclavian artery. The rupture of the aneurysm by penetration to the trachea amounted to about 1,000 ml of bleeding; fortunately the bleeding ceased spontaneously. Nonetheless, an emergency transcatheter coil embolization prevented re-bleeding. Endovascular treatment should be considered especially for aneurysms which develop in patients with underlying diseases.  (+info)

Anastomotic pseudoaneurysm is a rare complication following aorta replacement. However, this condition is life-threatening because of the high risk of rupture. This complication has a mortality rate of 61% if no intervention is performed.[1] Its foremost cause may be the high local tension or the edematous aortic wall, which causes sutures to lacerate the aortic wall. Another possible cause is the graft infection.[2]. The incidence rate of anastomotic pseudoaneurysm ranges from 0.5% to 15%.[3] To date, two interventions are mainly used to manage this condition: The surgical repair and thoracic endovascular aortic repair. Surgical treatment involves the replacement of a prosthetic graft or direct repair via a redo left lateral thoracotomy. Such redo thoracotomy is extremely difficult because of the adhesion of lungs to the chest wall in the left chest cavity. The high risk of lung injury was reported for more than 30% of the patients.[4] Meanwhile, open surgery has a high mortality ...

Pseudoaneurysms, or false aneurysms, are differentiated from true aneurysms by the layers of the artery involved. Pseudoaneurysms are the result of the rupture of all three layers of the artery: the tunica intima, media, and adventitia. The aneurysm is contained by an organized hematoma or neighboring connective tissue. With true aneurysms, the outermost layer, the adventitia, remains intact.. As a result of its secure location, injury to the basilar artery is rare.1 Only 10% of traumatic aneurysms in the brain occur in the posterior circulation. As was seen in this case, the majority of basilar artery aneurysms are associated with skull base fractures. In addition, the connective tissue surrounding the basilar artery is usually unable to contain the aneurysm, making it improbable that a patient would survive a traumatic aneurysm in the posterior circulation.2 Rapid treatment is imperative because of the high morbidity and mortality associated with basilar artery pseudoaneurysms. ...

In addition to haematoma and arteriovenous fistula, the iatrogenic pseudoaneurysm is a common complication of vascular access that is caused by a perforation in the arterial wall. Iatrogenic pseudoaneurysms can progress in size and lead to rupture and active bleeding. Over the previous few decades, therapeutic methods have evolved from surgical repair to less invasive options, such as ultrasound-guided compression therapy (UGCT) and ultrasound-guided thrombin injection (UGTI). This paper presents an overview of the diagnostic and treatment modalities used in femoral pseudoaneurysms as well as a comprehensive summary of previous studies that analysed the success and complication rates of UGCT and UGTI ...

Another option for treatment is ultrasound probe compression of the neck of the pseudoaneurysm. The "neck" of the pseudoaneurysm is the narrow path of blood flow between the artery, through the arterial wall, and into the pseudoaneurysm cavity. The artery, neck, and pseudoaneurysm are seen on ultrasound. The ultrasound probe can be pushed firmly against the patients skin to compress the neck of the pseudoaneurysm for usually about 20 minutes. During this time, the blood within the pseudoaneurysm clots; after the probe is then removed, the pseudoaneurysm will hopefully remain clotted and will not continue to expand. The procedure may be stopped early due to patient discomfort. It is less successful if the patient is obese, since there is more fatty tissue between the skin and the neck of the pseudoaneurysm. It also is less successful if the neck of the pseudoaneurysm is wider, since it is less likely to clot off during the period of compression. Finally, it is also much less successful if the ...

A 61-year-old man with acute myocardial infarction developed a painful hematoma in his groin after percutaneous coronary intervention. Ultrasonography, including color Doppler, detected a pulsatile, hypoechogenic, single compartment lesion (2.3 × 3.0 × 2.9 cm) consistent with a partially thrombosed pseudoaneurysm originating from the distal part of the common femoral artery (Figure, A). Sampling from the neck of the pseudoaneurysm connecting the pseudoaneurysm to the common femoral artery, spectral Doppler waveform analysis unexpectedly displayed flow directed toward the pseudoaneurysm cavity both in systole and diastole (Figure, B), in contrast to the characteristic to and fro-like flow pattern detected in uncomplicated pseudoaneurysms (Figure, C). The turbulent monophasic flow of the pseudoaneurysm neck, with its characteristic high end-diastolic velocities (Figure, B), suggested flow to an area of low peripheral resistance, in contrast to the normal high-resistance biphasic arterial flow ...
A 65-year-old alcoholic man presented with subacute exertional dyspnea and left shoulder pain. Three years earlier he was bitten by a rat while feeding a pet snake, resulting in sepsis, which was treated with intravenous antibiotics. Cardiac catheterization at an outside hospital was interpreted as myocardial bridging of the circumflex artery, and transthoracic 2-dimensional echocardiogram raised suspicion of aortic dissection, resulting in a transfer to our hospital.. Chest radiograph at admission was unremarkable, but ECG revealed sinus tachycardia with inferolateral ST-T wave changes, suggestive of ischemia (Figure 1A and 1B). Bedside transesophageal echocardiogram with 3-dimensional full-volume reconstruction showed severe aortic stenosis and a large pseudoaneurysm (PSA) of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa, with a mobile calcification noted at the opening of the PSA cavity (Figure 2A and 2B and online-only Data Supplement Movie I). Cardiac computed tomographic angiography established ...

Pseudoaneurysms are a recognised complication of pancreatitis. Necrotising vasculitis with resultant aneurysmal changes in peri-pancreatic vessels is more recognised in chronic pancreatitis. Similar pseudoaneurysms have been described in association with acute pancreatitis, but only occur in approximately 10% of cases. The damage in pancreatitis is caused by released and activated pancreatic enzymes. Necrotizing vasculitis and erosion of vessel walls results in aneurysmal changes in peripancreatic vessels. The vessels of the coeliac trunk are the most commonly affected. Haemorrhage from arterial pseudoaneurysm rupture is potentially fatal. In most cases, massive gastrointestinal bleeding is typical at onset and prognosis of these cases is usually poor. Early diagnosis and treatment of this complication is therefore important. It is well recognised and documented that radiology has a major role in diagnosis and management. Ultrasound may be useful in diagnosing pseudoaneurysm complicating acute ...
A pseudoaneurysm, also known as a false aneurysm, is a collection of blood that forms between the two outer layers of an artery, the muscularis propria and the adventitia. It is usually caused by a penetrating injury to the vessel, which then bleeds, but forms a space between the above two layers, rather than exiting the vessel. It may be pulsatile and can resemble a true aneurysm. A true aneurysm involves all three layers of the blood vessel. A dissecting aneurysm is when blood from the vessel lumen tracks between the two inner layers, the intima and the muscularis. This can cause blockage of the flow. A perivascular hematoma is a collection of blood that is external to the three vessel layers. Due to being close to the vessel, it can also be pulsatile, and can be mistaken for a pseudoaneurysm or aneurysm. Femoral pseudoaneurysms may complicate up to 8% of vascular interventional procedures. Small pseudoaneurysms can spontaneously clot, while others need definitive treatment. A pseudoaneurysm ...
Pseudoaneurysm formation after vascular reconstruction is a rarely encountered problem in the treatment of peripheral arterial disease. It has most commonly been described in the vascular surgical literature as a delayed complication of lower extremity bypass surgery, and the usual mode of repair has been surgical. Recent advances in minimally invasive therapy for this clinical entity have centered on ultrasound-guided compression and thrombin injection to obliterate the cavity and restore vascular integrity. With the advent of stent-supported angioplasty, endovascular methods of treatment for
A case of false aneurysm originating from the ascending aortic cannulation site in the absence of mediastinal infection is described. Surgical treatment was carried out by means of limited cardiopulmonary bypass and hypothermic circulatory arrest, but the patient died early in the postoperative period.

Y1 - 2011/12. N2 - A 49-year-old patient with an anastomotic pseudoaneurysm in the aortic arch was considered at high risk for conventional surgery through a median sternotomy because he had previously undergone several operations to treat aortic dissection and had a deep sternal infection after one procedure. Therefore, a hybrid repair was performed. Stent grafts were placed bridging two previously implanted aortic prostheses, which were in the ascending aorta and descending aorta, respectively. The supra-arch vessels were perfused by means of an extra-anatomic bypass from the descending aorta. The aneurysm was completely excluded from the blood flow, and the patient had no serious complications..

False Aneurysm: Not an aneurysm but a well-defined collection of blood and CONNECTIVE TISSUE outside the wall of a blood vessel or the heart. It is the containment of a ruptured blood vessel or heart, such as sealing a rupture of the left ventricle. False aneurysm is formed by organized THROMBUS and HEMATOMA in surrounding tissue.
The risk of rupture for pseudoaneurysm in transplanted patients is 50% [3]; if untreated the reported mortality-rate is 69% or higher in case of extrahepatic pseudoaneurysm [4]. Altough pseudoaneurysms are uncommon, they represent potential life-threatening post-OLT arterial complications which must be promptly diagnosed and treated. In fact, without an early treatment, they may threaten patient and graft survival, limiting the long-term success of transplantation ...

A 64-year-old man presented with an inferior ST-elevation myocardial infarction. The patient underwent emergent percutaneous coronary intervention of his right coronary artery. Cine cardiac magnetic resonance imaging showed a contained rupture of the inferobasal wall with pseudoaneurysm formation (A). Delayed enhancement image showed the transmural infarct (B). Cardiac computed tomography multiplanar reconstruction also showed an associated ventricular septal defect (C). Transthoracic echo color Doppler image showed flow across ventricular septal defect (D). Although relatively rare, both pseudoaneurysms and ventricular septal defects are well-known mechanical complications after myocardial infarction that increase the risk of mortality. This patient had bovine pericardial patch repair of both defects 3 weeks later, after which he was discharged to cardiac rehabilitation. ...

The aim of this study is to report a new minimally invasive technique of superficial temporal artery (STA) pseudoaneurysm treatment. Several surgical options have been employed to treat STA pseudoaneurysms. To address this rare condition, the employed techniques are ligation and excision of the aneurysm, endovascular coil embolization or percutaneous ultrasound-guided thrombin injection. Between techniques no significant differences are reported in terms of outcomes. The decision to adopt a technique depends on STA pseudoaneurysm morphology and surgeon preference. In the present report, STA pseudoaneurysm afferent and efferent branches were identified by ultrasound in a 92-year-old female. Under local anaesthesia, these branches were ligated through small skin incisions. STA pseudoaneurysm decompression was obtained by an over the needle aspiration. A compressive dressing was left in space for 48 h. ...

A 52-year-old man presented with signs of a right middle cerebral artery stroke. A large pulsatile mass was noted at the right base of his neck, together with an overlying scar which the patient reported as being due to a stab wound sustained 22 years ago (Fig. 1). A computed tomography (CT) scan of the brain showed an infarct in the area of the right middle cerebral artery (Fig. 2). Computed tomographic angiography revealed a pseudo-aneurysm of the right common carotid artery at its origin with extensive surrounding thrombus (Fig. 3), as well as paucity of branches of the right middle cerebral artery (Fig. 4). Definitive management of the pseudo-aneurysm was achieved by vascular surgical intervention.

The authors identified two randomized controlled trials, one observational study with a control group, and nine observational studies without a control group. A total of five different catheters were used across these trials. In controlled studies, there was a reduction in mean systolic (-28.9 mm Hg; 95% confidence interval [CI], -37.2 to -20.6; p < 0.0001) and diastolic (-11.0 mm Hg; 95% CI, -16.4 to -5.7; p < 0.0001) blood pressure (BP) at 6 months compared to medically treated patients. In uncontrolled studies, there was a similar reduction in mean systolic (-25.0 mm Hg; 95% CI, -29.9 to -20.1) and diastolic (-10.0 mm Hg; 95% CI, -12.5 to -7.5) blood pressure at 6 months compared to pre-RDN values. There was no difference in the effect of RDN according to the type of the device used. Reported procedural complications included one renal artery dissection and four femoral pseudoaneurysms.. ...
Vasculo-Behçet disease iVBD jis a special type of Behçet disease iBD jinvolving some vascular disorders like aneurysmal formation, arterial occlusion, and venous thrombosis in various vessels. VBD has a poor prognosis due to aneurysmal rupture or recurrence of vascular disorders despite optimal treatment. However, definite diagnosis in BD is made on the basis of clinical features, and early diagnosis is difficult. We report 2 patients whose first clinical symptoms were femoral-pseudoaneurysms. They received a diagnosis of VBD after surgery. The first patient was a 69-year-old man, who underwent autologous-vein patch closure of a perforated region in the left femoral artery. One year later, he had a pseudoaneurysm of the right profunda femoris artery, which was ligated. The second patient was a 51-year-old man, who underwent the interposition of the saphenous vein for defective artery due to left superficial femoral-pseudoaneurysm ...

Transradial approach has gained progressive acceptance because it has been shown to have fewer hemorrhagic and vascular-related complications than the femoral approach does for diagnostic and therapeutic percutaneous coronary artery procedures. However, transradial access is not free of complications (1). A 43-year-old man was admitted with a non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome. A transradial coronary angiography was performed, followed by a drug-eluting stent implantation in the proximal descendent artery. Twenty-four hours after the procedure, he experienced an intense, continuous chest pain in his right upper hemi-thorax that irradiated to the right forearm, without electrocardiographic changes or elevated markers of myocardial damage, and required a high dose of analgesia. A computed tomogram was performed, revealing a subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm that compressed the brachial plexus (Figs. 1A to 1D). A few days later, an endovascular covered self-expanding stent was ...
Pseudoaneurysms of the superficial temporal artery are an uncommon vascular lesion of the external carotid system and most often the result of blunt head trauma. The frequency of pseudoaneurysms of the superficial temporal artery developing after craniotomy is exceedingly low and only a few cases have been reported. We present a case of pseudoaneurysm of this type in a 45-year-old male who underwent craniotomy for excision of meningioma. One month postoperatively, the craniotomy flap exhibited an enormous diffuse pulsate swelling. The suspected diagnosis of pseudoaneurysm arising from superficial temporal artery was confirmed on angiography. Surgical excision was done and no recurrences of the tumor or aneurysm were noted on subsequent follow up.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Pulmonary artery rupture induced by a pulmonary artery catheter. T2 - A case report and review of the literature. AU - Abreu, Alexandre. AU - Campos, Michael A. AU - Krieger, Bruce P.. PY - 2004/9/1. Y1 - 2004/9/1. N2 - Placement and use of pulmonary artery catheters (PACs) carry potential risks. The authors describe a case of a patient who developed massive hemoptysis after placement of a PAC that caused a rupture of the pulmonary artery with pseudoaneurysm formation. Treatment was successfully achieved with transcatheter coil embolization. Pulmonary artery rupture and pseudoaneurysm formation are among the most serious complications of PAC use because of the associated risk of mortality. Patients with this complication may be asymptomatic or may present with variable amounts of hemoptysis immediately or days after using a PAC. The gold standard diagnostic test is pulmonary angiography, and the treatment of choice for most patients is transcatheter embolization. Physicians and ...
Pseudoaneurysms of the superficial temporal artery are a rare and potentially critical cause of facial masses. Most pseudoaneurysms form as a result of blunt trauma and present as painless, pulsatile tumors that may be associated with neuropathic findings and enlarged size. Without careful evaluation in the primary care setting, pseudoaneurysms can be easily misdiagnosed and improperly managed. They can, however, be accurately diagnosed through physical examination alone and subsequently treated with surgical ligation. The authors present two cases of traumatic pseudoaneurysms of the superficial temporal artery caused by blunt injury and discuss pertinent diagnosis and treatment options, as well as provide a brief review of the anatomy and histopathology of pseudoaneurysms. ...
A 60-year-old man with inoperable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension was referred to our hospital for balloon pulmonary angioplasty (BPA). Four series of BPA dramatically improved pulmonary hypertension: mean pulmonary arterial pressure from 42 to 29 mm Hg and cardiac index from 1.9 to 2.5 l/min/m2. However, during the last BPA to a residual lesion (right #9), vessel rupture and aneurysmal formation occurred (Figure 1A). We implanted a covered stent (GRAFTMASTER RX, Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, California) to seal the orifice of the pseudoaneurysm and then added aspirin to warfarin. A follow-up (18-month) pulmonary angiography showed the patency with 50% diameter stenosis of the stent (Figure 1B). Optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) (TERUMO Co., Tokyo, Japan) also demonstrated the high-intensity concentric neointimal layer in the stent with little thrombus (Figure 1C, Online Video 1). The covered stent was reported to be useful as a bailout tool for pulmonary artery rupture ...
Roughly 10% to 32% of the population has a fetal origin PCA supplying their parieto-occipital lobes in which the P1 segment is hypoplastic and the PCA is supplied primarily by a larger diameter homolateral posterior communicating artery [5, 10]. Other potentially persistent primitive carotid basilar anastomoses include the primitive trigeminal artery, the primitive acoustic (otic) artery, the primitive hypoglossal artery, and the primitive proatlantic artery. The fetal origin PCA anatomic variant provides a potential conduit for emboli from ipsilateral ICA disease [6-9]. To the best of our knowledge, artery-to-artery embolism from cervical ICA pseudoaneurysm to fetal PCA has not been previously reported. Pseudoaneurysm usually develops as a result of trauma, with rupture of the affected artery through the intima and media into the subadventitial plane. The resulting tear is contained by the adventitia forming a pseudoaneurysm. Unlike true aneurysms, pseudoaneurysms do not involve dilatation of ...

Figure 4 Post-Operative Evaluation. Post-operative TEE of the case presented in Figure 1. Artifacts produced by prosthetic valves make the post-operative evaluation difficult with 2-dimensional TEE, as these 135° ME views show (A and B). Real-time 3-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (RT-3D-TEE) is useful to evaluate prosthetic function and to rule out perivalvular leaks in this scenario. A zoomed RT-3D-TEE en face view of the MV from a 0° ME position (C, Online Video 4) or surgical view of the mitral prosthesis (see Fig. 2D) shows the pericardium patch sutured to the atrial walls, leading to a thickened and irregular appearance of the left atrium dome (yellow arrows). The mitral prosthesis is secured posteriorly by independent Teflon felt-supported sutures (white arrows) and anteriorly to the pericardium patch that restores the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa by a continuous suture (red arrows). Evaluation of the aortic prosthesis is often more challenging due to artifacts. A ...

Transorbital penetration accounts for one-quarter of the penetrating head injuries (PHIs) in adults and half of those in children. Injuries that traverse (with complete penetration of) the brainstem are often fatal, with survivors rarely seen in clinical practice. Here, the authors describe the case of a 16-year-old male who suffered and recovered from an accidental transorbital PHI traversing the brainstem-the first case of complete neurological recovery following such injury. Neuroimaging captured the trajectory of the initial injury. A delayed-onset carotid cavernous fistula and the subsequent development of internal carotid artery pseudoaneurysms were managed by endovascular embolization.. The authors also review the relevant literature. Sixteen cases of imaging-confirmed PHI traversing the brainstem have been reported, 14 involving the pons and 12 penetrating via the transorbital route. Management and outcome of PHI are informed by object velocity, material, entry point, trajectory, ...
A 15-year-old boy sustained severe multisystem injuries from a satchel charge while in his native village in southern Lebanon. After evacuation and resuscitation measures, he had successful intensive multidisciplinary surgical care. His long-bone fractures were stabilized by tubular external fixation systems, and his lacerated right tibialis anterior artery was grafted. Twenty days after injury, he developed a pseudoaneurysm of the left distal ulnar artery, which was surgically resected and the ulnar artery proximally ligated. Two weeks later, a pseudoaneurysm of the left peroneal artery, distal to the knee and coupled with an arteriovenous fistula, was diagnosed. This was treated by fluoroscopic controlled embolization with placement of stents. The patient recovered uneventfully. He was last seen two years after surgery, and no gross vascular compromise of any of his limbs was evident. This appears to be the only reported patient with late-developing multiple posttraumatic pseudoaneurysms after severe

Splenic artery aneurysm (SAA) is defined as an abnormal dilatation of the splenic artery more than 1 cm in diameter. It was first described on cadavers in 1770 by Beaussier [7]. It accounts for approximately 60 % of all visceral arterial aneurysms [2]. It is the third most common intra-abdominal aneurysm, following aortic and iliac artery aneurysms [3]. SAA is rarely seen with a prevalence of 1 % [1]. It is four times more common in females compared to males [8-10]. Risk factors correlating to the development of SAA include fibromuscular dysplasia, collagen vascular diseases, female gender, history of multiple pregnancies, and portal hypertension, although the pathogenesis is not fully understood [11].. Splenic artery pseudoaneurysms are less prevalent than true SAA. They differ from true SAA in that the dilatation occurs following the disruption of one or more layers of the vessel wall. Splenic artery accounts for the majority of splanchnic pseudoaneurysms. Unlike true SAA, they have a slight ...
Abstract: A 8-year-old boy showed a traumatic ventricular septal rupture following a blunt chest trauma, and was scheduled for elective catheter closure. Two weeks later, a follow-up echocardiogram revealed a pseudoaneurysm of the anterior wall of the left ventricle. Because of the apical location of the VSD, it was decided to proceed with transcatheter occlusion. After successful VSD closure, the patient was taken to the operation room for surgical repair of the left ventricular pseudoaneurysm. Symptoms and signs seen in patients with ventricular pseudoaneurysms appear to be discrete and variable, and a high clinical index of suspicion with a very close echocardiographic follow-up is strongly recommended after occurrence of a blunt cardiac trauma. The combined ‘hybrid’ approach of transcatheter closure of the intraventricular rupture followed by surgical closure of the pseudoaneurysm allows for a less invasive and efficient management of this rare combination of post-traumatic ...

PY - 2000/7. Y1 - 2000/7. N2 - Percutaneous femoral artery closure devices are being used routinely after cardiac catheterizations. The use of these devices has been advocated to decrease length of stay, promote early ambulation, and prevent bleeding. We reviewed the use of these devices in our institution and report three cases of infectious complications (two pseudoaneurysms and one infected hematoma). Reports of infected pseudoaneurysms after cardiac catheterization before the implementation of these devices are rare. The use of these devices may be associated with an increased incidence of infected femoral pseudoaneurysms..

Vascular Behcets disease has a poor prognosis. This poor prognosis is due to postoperative complications including pseudoaneurysm with 50% occurrence after previous surgical repair of aneurysm especially at the site of surgery. It is suggested that the fragility of the vascular wall may play a major role in this recurrence. Recent studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of endovascular stent-grafting for recurrent aortic aneurysm in patients with Behcets disease. We present a recurrent aneurysm of the abdominal aorta at a previously scarred operative site in a known case of Behcets disease. We attempted an endovascular treatment.. ...

DISCUSSION. Traumatic arterial injuries have a high mortality rate and lead to severe complications. They can be caused by penetrating or blunt traumas or may be iatrogenic. Injuries can lead to rupture of arteries, hemorrhage, arterial occlusion, dissection and formation of pseudoaneurysms, true aneurysms or arteriovenous fistulas.3 Aneurysms of the superficial temporal artery are rare events and there are currently a total of around 200 cases reported in the literature.4 In 95% of cases, aneurysms of the temporal artery have traumatic origin and form pseudoaneurysms. The remaining 5-8% are congenital aneurysms or have atherosclerotic origin.5,6 A true traumatic aneurysm, involving all three layers of the vessel, is an extremely rare event. It is believed that true aneurysms may develop from a preexisting vascular condition, but this remains uncertain.7 The first case of temporal artery aneurysm was described in 1740 by Thomas Bartolin.2 In 1934, Winslow and Edwards collected 108 cases of ...
Cerebral or brain aneurysm is a cerebra-vascular disorder in which weakness in the wall of a cerebral artery or vein causes a localized dilation or ballooning of the blood vessel.. Hypertension is known to be a silent killer (by killing the person silently without any symptoms). Its silence can be very dangerous sometimes which can be fatal or can leave a serious morbidity behind. Hypertension may cause many health problems but this is article is written with the idea to provide you information about cerebral aneurysm.. The blood vessels are made up of three layers .i.e. tunica intima, media & adventitia.. When the Tunica Intima the inner most layer gets damaged usually due to high blood pressure or due to trauma, the vessels elasticity is compromised & the blood gets turbulence leading to the ballooning of vessel known as False Aneurysm formation. The True Aneurysm is said when all three layers of vessel is involved.. These Aneurysm can occur anywhere is the human body such as Abdominal Aorta ...
MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective study included patients with Moyamoya disease who underwent superficial temporal artery-MCA single anastomosis. TOF-MRA and SPECT were performed before and 1-6 days after anastomosis. Bilateral ROIs on the source image of TOF-MRA were manually placed directly on the parietal branch of the superficial temporal artery just after branching the frontal branch of the superficial temporal artery and on the contralateral superficial temporal artery on the same axial image, respectively. The change ratio of the maximum signal intensity of the superficial temporal artery on TOF-MRA was calculated by using the following formula: (Postoperative Ipsilateral/Postoperative Contralateral)/(Preoperative Ipsilateral/Preoperative Contralateral). ...
Ans a This is extraluminal bleed on 10th POD following most likely a pancreatic fistula. Clinical condition is mentioned for day 4 which is because of pancreatic leak. A pancreatic fistula can cause vascular pseudo aneurysm so answer is A CT angiography. Early extraluminal PPH requires reexploration. Intraluminal bleeding may manifest as extraluminal if there is associated anastomotic breakdown,and this may be amenable to angiographic intervention when involving the pancreaticojejunostomy.. Patients present with septic complications and/or a sentinel bleed. Radiographic embolization has become a more successful modality, with up to 80% success,13 but is limited by the initially intermittent nature of the bleeding. Exploration - if patient is not stable ...
Nine patients qualified for surgery for a bleeding gastric ulcer - all had a visible vessel. Three of these vessels were thrombosed including 2 in patients who had been in shock. The smallest patent vessel was 0,35 mm in diameter, and 6 of the bleeding vessels were subserosal. The features thought to predispose to further bleeding were vessel size, a lateral hole in the main trunk of the vessel and, possibly, previous recanalization or ingestion of a drug which affected haemostasis. Five of 6 patent arteries had a cap of thrombus over the breach forming a false aneurysm. It is suggested that clinically these should pulsate, enlarge, leak - with persistent fresh thrombus in the ulcer crater on repeat endoscopy - and finally rupture. Where the underlying vessel is thrombosed the stigmata of a non-pulsatile visible vessel or thrombus in the ulcer should disappear on repeat endoscopy. The sizes of the arteries in the normal antrum are tabulated.. ...

Large-volume paracentesis-induced intraperitoneal hemorrhage due to pseudoaneurysm formation is rarely reported. Here, we present a 56-year-old man with alcoholic liver cirrhosis admitted for massive ascites. Large-volume paracentesis was performed. Three days later, he became pale and complained of dyspnea and abdominal distention with hypotension. Percutaneous iliac angiography revealed contrast media leakage from a branch of the left circumflex iliac artery with pseudoaneurysm. He was successfully treated with microcoil embolization. Several days later, ascitic fluid increased and large-volume paracentesis was performed again. Two days later, his hemoglobin level suddenly decreased. An abdominal computed tomography scan showed new active bleeding at the left lower lateral peritoneal cavity, just anterior to the metalic coils. Percutaneous iliac angiography revealed contrast media extravasation from a branch of the left inferior epigastric artery with formation of collateral vessel. ...

title:Pseudoaneurysm of Internal Iliac Artery. Author:Seema Khanna, Ajay Kumar Khanna, Shashi Prakash Mishra, Sanjeev kumar Gupta. Keywords:Pseudoaneurysm, CT Angiography, Internal iliac artery. Type:Case report. Abstract:An unusual cause of vaginal bleeding after total abdominal hysterectomy is being reported. Histopathology revealed adenomyosis uteri and bilateral ovarian cyst. On examination there was a single lump in the hypogastrium and left iliac fossa. Auscultation revealed a faint continuous hum. On digital rectal examination, a bulge was felt, while per vaginal examination revealed mucosal congestion and bulging of mucosa. Ultrasound revealed a mass posterior to the urinary bladder. Duplex study demonstrated the yin-yang sign suggestive of a pseudo-aneurysm .CT Angiography was confirmatory and demonstrated a pseudoaneurysm arising from the left internal iliac artery. Patient underwent surgery. Postoperative period was uneventful. The commonest cause of IIA aneurysm is atherosclerosis. ...
1Introduction. Most cases of pancreatitis are mild and have a favorable prognosis. However they can also be present with a severe form and have ominous complications. Vascular events range from asymptomatic venous thrombosis to severe life-threatening arterial bleeding.1 Hemorrhage from pseudoaneurysms is considered a quite rare complication of acute or more commonly chronic pancreatitis, which is thought to be caused by leakage of pancreatic enzymes that erode the wall of adjacent visceral arteries. The vessel wall may also be damaged by ischemia and compression by inflammatory or necrotic collections. A pseudoaneurysm may also occur after biliopancreatic surgery.2 The most frequently involved vessels are the splenic artery in about 30-60%, the gastroduodenal artery in 20-25% and the pancreatoduodenal artery in 10-15% of the cases. Involvement of the hepatic or left gastric arteries is even less common.3 Bleeding may occur into the gastrointestinal tract and present as melena or hematochezia ...
A novel approach is proposed in this study using a magnetic strategy to address the current disadvantages of detachable coils and stent grafts for aneurysm/pseudoaneurysm treatment. It consists of a patch facing the aneurysm neck defect capable of reducing the flow inside it and bridging the aneurysm neck. The patch is thought to have the ability to attract locally magnetized smooth muscle cells and promote the wound healing through rapid cell migration, adhesion, proliferation and deposition of the extracellular matrix, which are essential requisites for vessel integrity and vascular repair. To test the feasibility of this approach, we have enhanced the cellular uptake of nanoparticles via electroporation for magnetic cell delivery, so that improved cell guidance and retention on the patch will be conferred for rapid favorable healing of the aneurysm neck.

In 15 to 20% of patients, the right hepatic artery will arise from the superior mesenteric artery and travel upward toward the liver along the posterior aspect of the head of the pancreas (referred to as a replaced right hepatic artery). It is important to look for this variation on preoperative computed tomographic (CT) scans and in the operating room (OR) so the replaced hepatic artery is recognized and injury is avoided.

Context:. The Kothmale Community Radio station is located at the top of a mountain in the central region of Sri Lanka, in an area that is mostly rural with small farms, rice paddies and tea plantations scattered between dense forest and small villages. It began broadcasting in February 1989. At the time, the Mahaweli Authority (a governmental development body operating in the central region), had relocated more than 2,900 families for Sri Lankas second-largest damming project. Many people in the region lost their crops and farming land. The Mahaweli Authority set up the station with the objective of giving information to people who had been relocated. The station was also used to provide information about self-employment and health.. By February 1991, the station aired only three days per week, with three hours of transmission each day. In 1999, the station moved to its current larger location in Mawathura, and broadcasts extended to eight hours per day. The morning broadcast was ...

A 78-year-old woman who had undergone an axillobifemoral artery bypass with a prosthetic graft for Leriche syndrome presented 1 month later with cough and fever. A clinical examination revealed obvious redness in the right groin. Routine laboratory tests uncovered inflammation and methicillin-sensitive-Staphylococcus aureus was cultured from blood samples. Mitral valve vegetations were identified by echocardiography, and after a diagnosis of infective endocarditis, specific intravenous antibiotics were immediately administered. One month later, CT revealed a large pseudoaneurysm of the posterior left ventricular wall that had not been present at the time of admission. Transesophageal echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging showed an aneurysmal cavity arising from the wall just below the posterior mitral valve leaflet. The patient agreed to undergo cardiac surgery due to the high likelihood that the pseudoaneurysm would rupture. The mitral annulus and leaflet were normal at surgery. We ...
Objective To explore the possibility of establishment of experimental femoral pseudoaneurysm (PA) and traumatic arteriovenous fistula (tAVF) models in 40 rabbits and its related study. Methods Experimental PA and tAVF models were established in rabbit with microsurgical anastomosis technique. Models were checked by color Doppler flow imaging (CDFI), examined by computed tomography angiography (CTA), magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) and digital subtraction angiography (DSA). Results Sixteen femoral PA in 20 rabbits (80%) and 26 tAVF in 30 rabbits (87%) were successfully anastomosed and were confirmed by related examination methods. Conclusion It is possible to establish PA and tAVF experimental models in rabbits with microsurgical technique and each one of the above examination methods has its own characteristics. A combination of these examination methods may improve the diagnostic accuracy and treatment ability clinically.

Carotid artery tear. Coloured lateral digital angiogram (X-ray) of a 43-year-old woman with a dissection (tear) of the left internal carotid artery (pink line, upper centre), caused by a sports injury. The spinal column can be seen (centre) along with the base of the skull (top). A dissection is a tear within the wall of a blood vessel. This allows leaked blood (haematoma) to separate the wall layers, creating a pseudoaneurysm (false aneurysm). This causes a narrowing of the artery and can completely block the flow of blood. Carotid artery dissection is the main cause of stroke in young people. - Stock Image C001/8118
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved the NuMED Cheatham Platinum (CP) Stent System for the prevention and/or treatment of aortic wall injury (AWI) in patients with coarctation of the aorta involving a compliant aortic isthmus or first segment of the descending aorta where there is adequate size and patency of at least one femoral artery and balloon angioplasty is contraindicated or predicted to be ineffective.. Stent therapy for coarctation of the aorta offers a non-surgical alternative to traditional operative repair of the aortic obstruction with similar results and complication rates. Stent treatment also has a lower rate of recurrence and aortic wall injury compared to balloon dilation alone.. Covered stent therapy provides similar outcomes and allows for simultaneous treatment of aortic wall injuries, such as aneurysm and pseudo-aneurysm that might be present, related to previous surgical or catheter based therapy of the coarctation. In the COAST II clinical trial, ...

Anastomotic aneurysms occurs at various levels of arterial system. Determining their location and incidence rate required investigation of large patient clinical material. Material and methods. In the years 1989-2010 in local centre 230 anastomotic aneurysms were operated in 180 patients. Results. For 187 (81.3%) patients anastomotic aneurysms were localised in the groin, while for remaining 43 (18.7%) they occurred in other localisations. In aortic arch branch they occurred four times (1.7), in descending aorta - three times (1.3%), in abdominal aorta - 14 (6.1%) and in iliac arteries - 6 (2.6%). While for anastomosis with popliteal artery they were diagnosed in 16 (7%) patients. Own clinical material was compared with literature data. Conclusions. Anastomotic aneurysms in over 80% of cases occur in the groin, remaining percentage corresponds to other localisations ...
Hemosuccus pancreaticus, also known as pseudohematobilia or Wirsungorrhage is a rare cause of hemorrhage in the gastrointestinal tract. It is caused by a bleeding source in the pancreas, pancreatic duct, or structures adjacent to the pancreas, such as the splenic artery, that bleed into the pancreatic duct, which is connected with the bowel at the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine. Patients with hemosuccus may develop symptoms of gastrointestinal hemorrhage, such as blood in the stools, maroon stools, or melena, which is a dark, tarry stool caused by digestion of red blood cells. They may also develop abdominal pain. It is associated with pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer and aneurysms of the splenic artery. Hemosuccus may be identified with endoscopy (esophagogastroduodenoscopy), where fresh blood may be seen from the pancreatic duct. Alternatively, angiography may be used to inject the celiac axis to determine the blood vessel that is bleeding. This may also be used to treat ...
Venous aneurysms may be either congenital or acquired. Most acquired venous aneurysms develop secondary to a traumatic vascular injury.2-4 Traumatic injury to a particular venous segment may cause disruption and weakness in the vessel wall and gradually result in dilatation and aneurysm formation, either true or false. Peripheral venous aneurysms may be seen in both lower and upper extremities and most have little clinical significance.7 However, they may present with severe clinical pictures such as deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.8. DSA produced a false positive result in this case. The wrong preoperative diagnosis in this case may be a result of problems attributable to angiography. Like almost every other diagnostic modality, it has user and technique dependent aspects to it. An error in the chain of consecutive steps may have resulted in the misdiagnosis. The premature diagnosis based on colour Doppler ultrasound and early DSA images may have been altered by DSA examination at ...

There is no disease more conducive to clinical humility than aneurysm of the aorta."-Osler.. Aneurysms of various types have long been recognized. The first type to be described came to be known as false aneurysm, because following rupture or wounding of an artery, the sac which formed had for its walls the adjacent tissues or newly formed connective tissue. Arterio-venous aneurysm is the term applied to a communication between an artery and vein. If it is direct, the lesion is known as aneurysmal varix, whereas if there is an interposed sac it is named varicose aneurysm. Aneurysms may rarely be ...
