HYBRID REVASCULARIZATION OF CHRONIC LIMB-THREATENING ISCHEMIA USING POPLITEAL BELOW-KNEE AND TIBIAL TRIFURCATION OPEN ENDARTERECTOMY DISTALLY PLUS INTER-WOVEN NITINOL STENTING PROXIMALLY

Chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI) is frequently due to multilevel, heavily calcified lesions, and it is often associated with desert foot. Effective revascularization currently presents an additional challenge due to the increasing age, comorbidities, and frailty related to these patients. Pure endovascular treatment often fails to achieve effective and durable revascularization and it is associated with still high amputation rates. We present a novel hybrid approach and discuss its usefulness for limb salvage in complex infrainguinal lesions. Go to Source This article was first shared by INDoximity

Testicular pain as a warning symptom of a symptomatic abdominal aortic aneurysm: case report and review of the literature

Isolated testicular pain is an unusual clinical presentation of symptomatic abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). We present two patients hemodynamically stable with an isolated acute testicular pain related to an AAA and a review of the published literature up to present.

Successful endovascular and endoscopic treatment of a symptomatic celiac artery aneurysm for obstructive jaundice: a clinical case report

: Celiac artery aneurysm (CAA) is an infrequent aneurysm of the celiac visceral branch and is potentially life-threatening, mainly due to the risk of rupture. CAA is often diagnosed following rupture and rarely diagnosed secondary to a primary manifestation; obstructive jaundice is extremely rare and poorly described. This clinical case report reports a combined endovascular and endoscopic non-invasive treatment. Go to Source This article was first shared by INDoximity

The “Skewer Technique” for Stentgraft Delivery in the Aortic Arch: Advancing the dilatator in the innominate artery over a right femoro-brachial through-and-through wire

: Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) is the preferred treatment for different aortic pathologies, because it has reduced mortality and morbidity rates. However, TEVAR is not feasible in all cases due to aortic angulations, the hemodynamics of the aortic arch and narrow or tortuous iliofemoral access. Therefore, different adjuvant techniques, such as iliac percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, iliathrough-and-through guidewires and external transapical guidewires have been previously reported.

Femoral Artery Leiomyosarcoma: Case Report And Literature Review

Leiomyosarcoma (LMS) is a rare type of malignant tumor that arises from smooth muscle tissue, the major structural component of most hollow internal organs, including blood vessel walls; it can be divided into three types according to the site of origin: soft tissues LMS, cutaneous LMS and vascular LMS (VLMS).1 Go to Source This article was first shared by INDoximity
