Conditions resulting from abnormalities in the arteries branching from the ASCENDING AORTA, the curved portion of the aorta. These syndromes are results of occlusion or abnormal blood flow to the head-neck or arm region leading to neurological defects and weakness in an arm. These syndromes are associated with vascular malformations; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; TRAUMA; and blood clots.
A disorder characterized by recurrent apneas during sleep despite persistent respiratory efforts. It is due to upper airway obstruction. The respiratory pauses may induce HYPERCAPNIA or HYPOXIA. Cardiac arrhythmias and elevation of systemic and pulmonary arterial pressures may occur. Frequent partial arousals occur throughout sleep, resulting in relative SLEEP DEPRIVATION and daytime tiredness. Associated conditions include OBESITY; ACROMEGALY; MYXEDEMA; micrognathia; MYOTONIC DYSTROPHY; adenotonsilar dystrophy; and NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395)

Surgical treatment of nonaneurysmal aortic arch lesions in patients with systemic embolization. (1/58)

PURPOSE: Atherosclerotic lesions of the aortic arch are potential sources of arterial embolism. Here we investigate whether surgery, with the necessary circulatory supports, can be proposed as a good option for treatment of this problem. Study of these lesions on a national scale in France has made possible the assessment for future indications of techniques and results of the surgical management of aortic arch lesions, which retrospectively proved to be embolic. METHODS: Thirty-eight patients, (19 men and 19 women) underwent surgery between 1976 and 1996 in 17 French cardiovascular surgical centers. The average age at the time of surgery was 49 +/- 12 years (range, 31 to 82 years). Atherosclerotic lesions were detected with transesophagial echocardiography (n = 19), angiography of the aortic arch (n = 16), computed tomography (n = 9), and magnetic resonance imaging (n = 10). Surgery consisted of thrombectomy and endarterectomy (n = 22), aortic resection and graft replacement (n = 10), and patch aortoplasty (n = 5; one thrombus disappeared spontaneously before surgery was performed). RESULTS: The average postoperative period was 30 months (range, 3 to 82 months). Contact was lost with four patients after a follow-up period of 12 months. On pathologic specimens obtained at surgery, an atherosclerotic plaque was found in 73% of the cases (n = 28). In 15% of the cases, the aorta appeared normal (n = 6) and four other types of lesion were identified: angiosarcoma (n = 1), ectasia at the insertion of the remains of the ductus arteriosus (n = 1), rupture of tunica intima (n = 1), and a fibroblastic plaque (n = 1). A thrombus was identified in 26 cases, attached to the arterial wall in 18 cases. When transesophagial echocardiographic results showed mobile lesions (n = 22), histopathologic examination of specimens allowed the detection of a thrombus in 18 cases and an atherosclerotic plaque with a mobile projection in four cases. The postoperative mortality rate was 2.6%. The morbidity rate (28.9%; n = 11) was related to neurologic complications (n = 6), vascular complications (n = 4), and infection (n = 1). Four cases (12%) were reoperated. CONCLUSION: Nonaneurysmal aortic arch lesions are a frequent and still underestimated source of stroke and peripheral embolization. Surgery with circulatory support can be recommended in good operative candidates with recurrent critical events despite medical management and with high embolic potential (young patients with no calcified plaques).  (+info)

PARADOXES OF TAKAYASU'S DISEASE. (2/58)

Takayasu's disease (or arteritis) has been defined as an "idiopathic aortitis usually affecting young women." It can come to light from very spectacular and often quite puzzling clinical manifestations. Six cases of Takayasu's disease were investigated at the UCLA Hospital in the years 1961-1962, and signs and symptoms of central nervous system involvement were found in five of the patients. This relatively high incidence of neurological deficit prompted a review of case reports in the literature and this in turn led to a series of "unexpected" findings in the historical evolution of the illness as well as in its anatomopathological aspects. The study indicated that Takayasu's disease is frequently associated with neurological manifestations, at times very severe. In addition, the disease appears to be far more extensive than its classical description suggests. New criteria for the diagnosis of Takayasu's disease must include, among other things, special emphasis on the disseminated nature of the disease.  (+info)

Common variable immunodeficiency syndrome with right aortic arch: a case report. (3/58)

BACKGROUND: Common variable immunodeficiency syndrome predominantly affects adults. It is characterized by low production of all the major classes of immunoglobulins. We report a case of common variable immunodeficiency syndrome with right aortic arch. An association of right-sided arch and common variable immunodeficiency syndrome has not been previously reported. CASE PRESENTATION: A 41-year-old female patient presented with a history of recurrent pneumonia, sinusitis, otitis media, diarrhoea, cystitis since childhood. Biochemical and immunocytochemical analysis revealed common variable immunodeficiency syndrome and radiological evaluation confirmed right aortic arch and aberrant left subclavian artery. CONCLUSION: Common variable immunodeficiency syndrome syndrome is a clinical entity that should be kept in mind in patients with recurrent infections of different sites.  (+info)

Subclavian steal in Takayasu's arteritis. A hemodynamic study by means of ultrasonic Doppler flowmetry. (4/58)

Blood flow in the vertebral artery and the upper extremity was studied in five cases of Takayasu's arteritis with subclavian steal by use of ultrasonic Doppler flowmetry and finger plethysmography. The diagnosis of subclavian steal was made by observation of flow reversal in the vertebral artery on the subclavian steal side during grip exercise and, in addition, the vertebral flow change with brachial artery occlusion. The blood flow increase of both internal cartotid and non-affected (non-subclavian steal side) vertebral arteries during a common carotid compression was almost normal in patients with Takayasu's arteritis in this study. During carotid compression on the side of the subclavian steal, ipsilateral vertebral blood flow greatly decreased, and the amplitude the ipsilateral finger plethysmogram decreased slightly or moderately. It is suggested that there are significantly important factors in suppressing sumptoms of vertebrobasilar ischemia in these patients with Takayasu's arteritis with subclavian steal. These factors are believed to be (1) good function of the circle of Willis, (2) good blood supply to the brain stem, and (3) collateral circulation to the distal subclavian artery not via the vertebral artery.  (+info)

Major vascular anomalies in Turner syndrome: prevalence and magnetic resonance angiographic features. (5/58)

BACKGROUND: Turner syndrome (TS) is associated with aortic coarctation and dissection; hence, echocardiographic evaluation of all patients is currently recommended. X-ray angiography in clinically symptomatic patients has suggested a range of other vascular anomalies, but the true prevalence of such lesions in TS is unknown. To better understand the prevalence and pathogenesis of cardiovascular defects in TS, we prospectively evaluated a group of asymptomatic adult volunteers with TS using magnetic resonance (MR) angiography. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 85 adults with TS and 27 normal female adult volunteers underwent gadolinium-enhanced 3D MR angiography. A high prevalence of aortic anomalies was seen in women with TS, including elongation of the transverse arch (49%), aortic coarctation (12%), and aberrant right subclavian artery (8%). Venous anomalies were also prominent, including persistent left superior vena cava (13%) and partial anomalous pulmonary venous return (13%). None of these anomalies were found in healthy female controls. The constellation of elongation of the transverse arch, aortic coarctation, and persistent left superior vena cava was significantly associated with women with TS. Neck webbing and increased thoracic anterior-to-posterior dimension diameters were strong predictors for arterial and venous anomalies. CONCLUSIONS: Thoracic vascular anomalies are common in TS, occurring in approximately 50% of a group not preselected for cardiovascular disease. The highly significant association between neck webbing, increased chest diameter, and these vascular anomalies suggests that in utero, centrally localized lymphatic obstruction may contribute to these cardiovascular deformities in TS. Improved recognition of these often-undetected vascular lesions may be important for identification of patients in need of closer cardiovascular monitoring.  (+info)

Aortic root replacement with a freestyle stentless valve for aortitis syndrome with ascending aortic aneurysm and aortic regurgitation. (6/58)

A 47-year-old woman who had been diagnosed as having aortitis syndrome underwent aortic root replacement for an ascending aortic aneurysm and aortic regurgitation. Because the patient has been treated with steroids for more than 20 years, a Freestyle stentless valve was used to avoid the risk of valve detachment. There were no complications observed during the postoperative course. Although long-term follow-up will be necessary to observe the valve durability, the Freestyle stentless valve seems to be useful for aortic root replacement in patients at high risk of valve detachment due to aortitis syndrome.  (+info)

Protruding aortic arch thrombus: treatment with minimally invasive surgical approach. (7/58)

BACKGROUND: Protruding aortic arch thrombus is associated clinically with life-threatening emboli. Definitive treatment for aortic arch thrombus removal has demanded complicated vascular surgical procedures, with high morbidity and mortality. METHODS AND RESULTS: Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) enabled diagnosis of a protruding thrombus at the aortic arch in 5 patients, and a simultaneous lesion in the descending aorta in 1 patient. Four patients had visceral emboli, coinciding with peripheral emboli in 2 patients, and the fifth patient had peripheral and cerebral emboli. One patient had had ischemic stroke and femoral emboli a few months previously. Mean patient age was 51 years. None had clinical evidence of coronary or peripheral atherosclerotic occlusive disease. Risk factors included hypertension (n = 2), smoking (n = 4), and preexisting thrombophilia (n = 4). Five patients underwent TEE-guided aortic balloon thrombectomy from the arch with a 34-mm occluding balloon catheter. One patient also underwent balloon thrombectomy from the descending aorta with a 14F Foley catheter. Access into the aorta was obtained through the iliac artery (n = 4) during laparotomy because of visceral ischemia or through the transfemoral approach (n = 2). Previous procedures included superior mesenteric embolectomy (n = 3), segmental bowel resection (n = 1), splenectomy (n = 1), and peripheral arterial embolectomy n = 3). Real-time intraoperative TEE enabled visualization of the protruding thrombus and assisted with maneuvering of the balloon catheter. At completion peripheral thrombectomy thrombus material was retrieved in 4 patients. Postoperatively there were no clinically proved new procedure-related visceral emboli, and all patients received anticoagulant therapy thereafter. Follow-up TEE within 2 weeks and up to 7 years revealed no recurrent aortic arch thrombus. CONCLUSIONS: TEE-guided aortic balloon thrombectomy used in 6 procedures was effectively completed without visceral or peripheral ischemic complications. It enabled removal of the life-threatening source of emboli from the proximal aorta, thereby averting the need of major aortic surgery.  (+info)

Unusual vascular ring anomaly in a foal. (8/58)

A 2.5-month-old filly was presented with signs of esophageal obstruction. The filly was euthanized and postmortem examination revealed a vascular ring anomaly. The vascular ring anomaly was not caused by a persistent right aortic arch, which is the only vascular ring anomaly reported to occur in horses.  (+info)

DISCUSSION. It is known that the majority of thoracic aortic diseases are degenerative and occur in association with risk factors for atherosclerosis such as smoking, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia[10] and all of those had a high prevalence in our sample.. One of the factors that impact morbimortality after aortic interventions are neurologic events and progression of aortic disease[11]. TEVAR is a safe and effective procedure to treat both aneurysms and dissections involving the descending aorta with relative low risk[12,13]. The landing zone was soon extended proximally in order to treat more extensive segments of the aorta, reducing the morbimortality when compared with conventional techniques[14-16].. New totally endovascular techniques for treatment of complex aortic arch diseases are available and include stenting of the supra-aortic vessels (parallel techniques), fenestrated or branched endografts. Those are promising, but experience in aortic arch repair are very limited[17] and ...
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, ...
In an attempt to improve myocardial performance in acute myocardial infarction with shock, increments of coronary perfusion pressure were achieved by partial obstruction of the abdominal aorta with a balloon catheter introduced via a femoral artery in 28 dogs with plastic sphere coronary embolization. Alterations of central aortic pressure, coronary sinus flow, cardiac output, left atrial pressure, left ventricular work, left ventricular oxygen consumption, coronary vascular resistance, left ventricular mechanical efficiency, and left ventricular lactate and pyruvate extraction were determined before and after coronary embolization and at intervals during 1 hour of abdominal aortic obstruction. After coronary embolization, aortic pressure, ...

In the early stages of fetal development, two aortic arches come from the heart, ascend upward and then descend behind the heart merging together to become a single aorta. As the heart develops normally, the right-sided arch disappears, leaving the left-sided arch to ascend upward and continue to the descending aorta behind the heart. The normally developed left-sided aorta lies in front of the trachea, or breathing tube, and esophagus, or swallowing tube.. A vascular ring is a defect where the arch vessels encircle the breathing and swallowing tubes.This is caused by abnormal development of the aortic arches. If both arches stay open it is called a double aortic arch. The two arches surround the breathing and swallowing tubes and may cause narrowing or compression of these structures and lead to breathing and/or feeding difficulties. In another form of a vascular ring, the left-sided arch disappears, and the right-sided arch stays open. If this is associated with an abnormal origin of the blood ...
A 57 yo male with a background history of common variable Immunodeficiency syndrome (CVID) on Immunoglobulin Infusion (Kiovig) 40mg three weekly was referred for investigation of diarrhoea and follow up from previous history of colonic polyps.Colonoscopy showed an irregular looking ileocaecal valve (ICV) with an adjacent flat polyp (Paris IIa). Biopsies showed low grade dysplasia. There was also a duodenal polyp noted on gastroscopy and biopsy again showed low grade dysplasia. In light of the findings of upper and lower gastrointestinal tract polyps, a small bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE) was arranged. This showed an irregular area of mucosa in the proximal small bowel with significant ulceration and inflammation (Figure 1). There were also multiple scattered lymphagiectasias and lymphoid hyperplasia in the distal small bowel (Figure 2).Anterograde double ballon enteroscopy (ADBE) was subsequently performed to the distal jejunum about 8 weeks after the SBCE. The duodenal polyp seen at gastroscopy was

Takayasus arteritis is a chronic systemic inflammatory disease that usually affects the aorta, its primary branches and occasionally the pulmonary and coronary arteries. Female gender in reproductive age and Asian origin are known factors associated with higher disease prevalence. The clinical manifestations vary considerably and are typically caused by limb or organ ischemia illness and fever. The estimated incidence rate in the western world is 2.6 cases per million persons per year. Occasionally, exertional dyspnea can be the sole primary clinical manifestation of Takayasus arteritis. We report the case of a 57-year-old woman who was referred to our institution with increasing exertional dyspnea caused by pulmonary artery involvement in Takayasus arteritis. In a review of the literature we discuss demographic data, clinical and radiographic findings and available therapeutic options. Dyspnea due to pulmonary artery involvement can be the initial symptom of Takayasus arteritis. Simple clinical
A man aged 20 with sudden onset of headaches and rapidly evolving spastic quadriparesis died within 3 weeks. Pathologic examination revealed intensive inflammation confined mainly to the adventitia of the aorta, the internal carotids, and all the major intracranial arteries. The gross changes and the lymphocytic and plasma cell nature of the inflammatory infiltrates were typical of Takayasus arteritis. Thrombosis of the right internal carotid artery resulted in ischemic necrosis of the ipsilateral hemisphere. Quite recent thrombus occluded the left internal carotid artery. This seems to be the first case report on histologically proven extensive direct involvement of intracranial vessels in Takayasus disease. The differential diagnostic aspects of the case are also briefly discussed. ...
Crouzon syndrome is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder known as a branchial arch syndrome. Specifically, this syndrome affects the first branchial (or pharyngeal) arch, which is the precursor of the maxilla and mandible. Since the branchial arches are important developmental features in a growing embryo, disturbances in their development create lasting and widespread effects. This syndrome is named after Octave Crouzon, a French physician who first described this disorder. He noted the affected patients were a mother and her daughter, implying a genetic basis. First called craniofacial dysostosis, the disorder was characterized by a number of clinical features. This syndrome is caused by a mutation in the fibroblast growth factor receptor II, located on chromosome 10. Breaking down the name, craniofacial refers to the skull and face, and dysostosis refers to malformation of bone. Now known as Crouzon syndrome, the characteristics can be described by the rudimentary meanings of its ...
Kutsche and Van Mierop4 described CORSA in 1984. They found this anomaly in 4 of 21 infants (19%) studied for aortic arch interruption. The origin of the vessel was seen along with the origins of the internal and external carotid arteries as a trifurcation, at the level of the thyroid gland. It then descended down the neck to enter the right arm. The right recurrent laryngeal nerve was seen to course around the origin of the right subclavian artery, much higher than normal. The pathogenesis of CORSA can be explained by impairment of fourth aortic arch development, before the involution of the right ductus caroticus (segment of the dorsal aorta between the third and fourth arches). The right ductus caroticus, which normally involutes at the 14-mm crown-rump length, is retained and forms the initial segment of the right subclavian artery at its origin from the common carotid bifurcation. The seventh intersegmental artery and the dorsal aorta below the level of the third arch form the rest of the ...

Introduction: Takayasus arteritis (TA) is a rare systemic, chronic inflam-matory, progressive, idiopathic disease of aorta and its main branches. Taka-yasus arteritis causes narrowing, occlusion and aneurysm of arteries. The eti-ology of TA is still unknown. It may be autoimmune or genetic in origin or infective diseases. It is commonly found in Asia and oriental countries. Worldwide annual incidence is 1.2 - 2.6 cases/million. Women are affected in 80% - 90% of cases with age of onset below 40 years. TA does not worsen or improve with pregnancy but has adverse effect on pregnancy in the form of abortion, Intrauterine fetal death, superimposed preeclampsia, Intrauterine growth restriction, abruption and congestive heart failure. Because the disease is common in women of childbearing age, management of pregnancy in these patients becomes important; however optimal management for pregnant pa-tients with this disease has not yet been established. Due to the manifold car-diovascular complications that can

Hey all. Im not here often as my kiddos issue was minor (ASD) and diagnosed at 6 months. It was just a waiting game to see if it would close until her 4 year check, which just occurred on 9/6. At that time, she had a complete echocardiogram, which had not been done since she was diagnosed with the ASD at 6 months - reason being is her pediatric cardio wasnt going to intervene until she hit 40 lbs., so he didnt think it was necessary. She always had an EKG at her check-ups, and that was it. Anywho, she had the echo and needless to say, my very hyper daughter was not the best patient. They seemed to take forever. They were taking shots off and on for about 1.5 hours. Tech called in cardiologist who was trying to get a shot, but having trouble as well. Finally, cardiologist tells us that the ASD is closed. I say - wait, even *I* can still here her murmur clear as day. She says, We need to talk. We go in and she draws a picture and explains in too simple terms that Lauren has a right

A 46-year-old man was given a diagnosis of hypertension about 20 years previously. At age 41, aortitis syndrome was diagnosed, with descending thoracic aortic aneurysm and the coarctation of abdominal aorta by CT scan. He then underwent surgery to replace the descending thoracic aortic aneurysm and right axillo-bifemoral bypass. Recently, a thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm was pointed out at the distal site of the graft and, he was referred to our institute. We occluded the distal end of the aneurysm using an endoluminal occlusion stent graft. Today, in most cases of aortopathy associated with aortitis syndrome, surgical replacement of the aneurysms and extra-anatomical bypass is performed. An endovascular stent graft treatment combined with extra-anatomical bypass could be useful for various aortic disorders ...

Takayasus arteritis is a chronic granulomatous vasculitis of unknown cause characterized by stenosis, occlusion, and aneurysm of large elastic arteries, mainly the aorta and its branches. It mainly affects young women, predominantly in Asian, Middle Eastern, and South American countries.. Clinical presentation-symptoms in the acute stage are nonspecific, such as general fatigue and fever, which can persist for months to years. Symptoms in the chronic stage depend on the anatomical location of the vascular lesions, with typical complaints relating to ischaemia of the brain, eyes, or arms. The commonest finding on physical examination is a weak or absent pulse in one or both brachial, radial, and/or ulnar arteries. Bruits can often be heard over affected arteries. Hypertension and aortic insufficiency are strongly associated with poor prognosis.. Diagnosis-comprehensive angiographic imaging is required for diagnosis, evaluation of the extent of disease, and to guide therapy. American College of ...

A six-month-old girl presented with inspiratory stridor, difficulty feeding, and recurrent lower respiratory tract infections. On evaluation, she had a double aortic arch forming a vascular ring, compressing the esophagus and trachea. Surgical division of the vascular ring was planned to relieve the compression of the esophagus and trachea. A left posterolateral thoracotomy was done. The vascular ring was identified and divided distal to the origin of the left subclavian artery. The ductus arteriosus was also excised. After division, the compression of esophagus and trachea were relieved, and the patient was extubated on the second postoperative day. She was discharged home on the eighth postoperative day. The child is now asymptomatic.. ...
Right aortic arch with aberrant left subclavian artery (RAA/aLSCA) is a rare aortic arch anomaly. The clinical association of aLSCA stenosis with RAA/aLSCA has not yet been fully elucidated. The aim of this study was to investigate the diagnosis, incidence, management and outcome of aLSCA stenosis in infants with prenatally diagnosed RAA/aLSCA. Ten fetuses who were diagnosed as having RAA/aLSCA in Kyushu University Hospital between January 2011 and December 2014 were enrolled. The maternal and child medical records were reviewed to investigate sex, gestational age at the fetal diagnosis, gestational age and body weight at birth, the findings of computed tomography (CT), Doppler ultrasonography of the vertebral artery and angiography, and the complications and outcomes of aLSCA stenosis ...
Until now, IA angiography has been the main imaging method used in the diagnosis and management of TA. In addition to the fact that this method is invasive and necessitates a dose of radiographic dye that may compromise renal function, its use is principally limited to the detection of changes in lumen diameter, which occur at a relatively late stage of the disease. Our results suggest that new non-invasive imaging methods such as [18F]FDG-PET and MRI can provide important additional information in TA about the presence of vascular inflammation and/or wall thickening when compared with conventional angiography. Early recognition of vascular inflammation or wall thickening is an important therapeutic advance, as it may allow TA to be diagnosed in the early pre-stenotic phase of the disease when it is potentially reversible and when patients symptoms are often non-specific. In addition, it will also allow the response to treatment to be closely monitored during follow up.. [18F]FDG-PET provides a ...

Congenital anomaly of the aortic arch is a rare and usually an incidental finding. Vascular rings constitute less than 1% of the congenital cardiovascular diseases and were first identified by Gross in 1945 [1]. Double aortic arch is the most frequent form of arch anomaly that requires surgery for tracheal or oesophageal compression [2]. Respiratory symptoms at birth or during infancy should raise the possibility of a vascular ring. The classic history in a patient with double aortic arch is noisy breathing in the first few weeks of life. Rarely, neonates may present with Acute life-threatening event (ALTE) characterized by episodes of acute apnea and cyanosis ...

INTRODUCTION: Floating thrombus in an aberrant right subclavian artery is a rare cause of peripheral arterial embolic events. CASE REPORT: We report a 45-year-old woman who presented with an ischemia of the right superior limb from embolic event. The diagnosis of mobile thrombus in an aberrant right subclavian artery was obtained with transoesophageal echocardiography and computed tomography. After three weeks of oral anticoagulant therapy, there was no significant resolution of the thrombus, and a surgical treatment was performed to prevent further embolization. The surgical procedure consisted of thrombectomy and reimplantation of the aberrant right subclavian artery to the right carotid artery. Postoperative recovery was uneventful. CONCLUSION: This case report illustrates that transoesophageal echography and computed tomography are useful to detect mobile thrombus of the thoracic aorta and is warranted in any embolic event in young patients.
A two-year-old Border Collie presented with a three-month history of regurgitation. Investigation with plain radiography, digital fluoroscopy, endoscopy and CT angiography (CTA) confirmed the presence of an aberrant right subclavian artery causing dorsal oesophageal compression. In this report, CTA was used to depict the anatomy of an aberrant right subclavian vessel and to highlight the importance of this imaging modality to identify the structures involved in a vascular ring. This report also identifies a patient with a congenital vascular ring anomaly presenting with adult-onset regurgitation, which has been successfully managed with medical treatment. ...
Takayasus arteritis is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the aorta, the largest blood vessel in the body, and its branches. Inflammation causes segments of the vessels to become narrowed, blocked, or even stretched, possibly resulting in aneurysms. The disease is very rare but most commonly occurs in young Asian women. Symptoms may include arm pain with use, decreased or absent pulses, lightheadedness or dizziness, headaches, and visual disturbances. Many individuals with Takayasu arteritis, however, have no apparent symptoms despite disease activity. Additionally, current tests used to measure vessel inflammation are considered unreliable and inconsistent. It is therefore very difficult to determine the extent of disease activity in a person with Takayasus arteritis. This study will use novel scientific methods to establish new biomarkers that can be used to monitor disease activity in individuals with Takayasus arteritis. These biomarkers may be used to help direct clinical ...

Pronounced arch obstruction can be seen after a well-repaired coarctation, and this probably results from the failure of a somewhat hypoplastic arch to grow or from clamp injury at the time of the initial repair, or from both causes. Because of mediastinal adhesions and minimal collateral circulation, use of extraanatomic bypass grafts appears to be the preferred approach. Methods. Six children or young adults presented with arch obstruction over a 3-year period. Their mean age was 13.5 ± 4 years, and the mean interval from the time of the initial repair was 10 ± 4 years. The mean age of the patients at the time of the initial repair was 3.2 ± 5 years. ...
This publication describes a hybrid endovascular and open surgical approach to treating a large aneurysm of an aberrant right subclavian artery (Kommerells diverticulum). A 76-year old man presented with dysphagia lusoria due to a 3.5 x 3.0 cm aneurysm involving an aberrant right subclavian artery. The patient was treated by a thoracic aortic endograft, left subclavian artery debranching (by its transposition to the left common carotid artery) and right subclavian artery revascularisation. This approach avoids the requirement for a thoracotomy or sternotomy needed with open surgical repair. At a 6 months follow-up assessment the aneurysm was shown to be thrombosed with no evidence of endoleak.. ...
Abstract: An unusual vascular ring anomaly consisting of a persistent right aortic arch and a left ligamentum arteriosum extending from the main pulmonary artery to an aberrant left subclavian artery and left aortic arch remnant complex was identified in a German shepherd dog and a great Dane. The left subclavian artery and left aortic arch remnant complex originated at the junction between the right distal aortic arch and the descending aorta and coursed dorsal to the oesophagus in a cranial direction. The attachment of the ligamentum arteriosum to the aberrant left subclavian artery was approximately 5 cm cranial to the point of origin of the aberrant left subclavian artery and left aortic arch remnant complex from the descending aorta in both dogs. This anomaly observed in both dogs is similar to an anomaly reported in humans, in which a persistent right aortic arch is found in conjunction with an aberrant left subclavian artery and a left aortic arch remnant (Kommerells diverticulum). ...

Aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA) or arteria lusoria is one of the most common congenital aortic arch anomaly with prevalence ranging from 1-2%. However, it is mostly asymptomatic and consequently often found sporadically during various diagnostic procedures with prevalence of 0.45% during coronary angiography.
Aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA), also called lusorian artery, is a well known anatomical variant of the origin of the right subclavian artery, one of the most common congenital vascular abnormalities of the aortic arch (the prevalence among the population is 1-2% in according to different authors) [1-4]. Usually ARSA arises after the left subclavian artery and crosses the mediastinum behind the oesophagus and the trachea. For its particular position ARSA can cause compression to the close anatomical structures. Dysphagia lusoria is the most frequent symptom (in 10 % of cases). For the same reason the prolonged compression caused by medical devices such as nasogastric or endotracheal tubes on the arterial wall of the ARSA can cause severe injury, especially when an ARSA aneurysm is present. In rare cases it can lead up to an oesophageal fistula with profuse bleeding characterised by high mortality rate (till now less than 20 cases were reported in literature). In our case fistulisation ...
