Continuous suture technique (CST) for aortic valve replacement (AVR) is a simple, secure, and fast surgical technique that has been shown to significantly decrease cross clamp time and cardiac bypass time, ultimately resulting in decreased myocardial ischemic injury, operation time, and hospital stay. However, previous studies have reported increased risk of periprosthetic regurgitation with CST for AVR. We describe our technique for AVR using CST in 100 patients with low complication rate and no perioperative paravalvular aortic insufficiency...

Endovascular abdominal aneurysm repair (EVAR) relies on the quality of the proximal and distal landing zone. Reinterventions are higher in patients with suboptimal landing zone. The study aimed to evaluate reintervention rate after endovascular treatment of an aorta-iliac aneurysm using the flared iliac limbs. The retrospective study included 179 patients treated with EVAR at a single university hospital institution from January 2011 to January 2014 of which 75 patients (42%) were treated with flared iliac limb stent graft and 104 patients (58%) were treated with a nonflared iliac limb stent graft...

A prevalence of diabetes is increasing among the patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Data on whether health-related quality of life improves similarly after CABG in diabetics and nondiabetics are limited. We assessed long-term mortality and changes in quality of life (RAND-36 Health Survey) after CABG. Seventy-four of the 508 patients (14.6%) operated on in a single institution had a history of diabetes and were compared with nondiabetics. The RAND-36 Health Survey was used as an indicator of quality of life...

Exercise improves morbidity, fatality rate, and quality of life in heart failure with low ejection fraction, but fewer data available in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF). The purpose of this study is to test the hypothesis that exercise training might improve the longitudinal intrinsic left ventricular (LV) function in HFPEF patients. This quasi-experimental study had recruited 30 patients with HFPEF. Exercise training program had been performed for a month with a total of 20 times exercise sessions and evaluated every 2 weeks...

Graft infections are a challenging complication in lower extremity bypass surgery with poor outcome, even when treated with graft removal (Gr-R) as a gold standard therapy. The efficacy of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) for graft infections has been reported recently, but it is still controversial. The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of NPWT and Gr-R for treating graft infections. Twelve consecutive patients with graft infections from 2008 to 2014, treated with Gr-R or NPWT, were enrolled...

Stroke is the leading cause of death and disability in the world as well as in Indonesia. Initial stroke severity is an important factor that affects short- and long-term stroke outcomes. This cross-sectional study was conducted in Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital from July 2017 to January 2018 to investigate the factors that affect stroke severity. A total of 77 acute ischemic stroke patients were divided into three groups, which include low blood homocysteine levels (< 9 μmol/L), moderate blood homocysteine levels (9-15 μmol/L), and high blood homocysteine levels (> 15 μmol/L)...

Symptoms attributable to a thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) are a separate indication for prophylactic repair, irrespective of aortic size. We present the case of a 56-year-old female with a history of a thoracic ascending aortic aneurysm (TAAA) and four other heart and arch vessel abnormalities who presented to us with chest pain radiating to her back. Computed Tomography and echocardiography showed no evidence of a dissection and revealed a maximal ascending aortic diameter of 4.2 cm. The patient subsequently underwent root-sparing ascending aortic and hemiarch replacement due to her threatening symptomatology...

Deep femoral artery (DFA) aneurysms are rare. DFA is protected by the adductor canal, which may delay the diagnosis. Then, its early diagnosis may be difficult and it is possible to be misdiagnosis with incarcerated inguinal hernia, which occurs more often in elderly people. We report a very rare case of a treatment of an advanced elderly patient with an isolated ruptured DFA aneurysm that was preoperatively confused with an incarcerated inguinal hernia. A 97-year-old man was admitted to a neighboring hospital due to a painful mass of the right groin after transient consciousness loss and the patient was diagnosed with right incarcerated inguinal hernia by a nonenhanced computed tomography (CT)...

Renal artery pseudoaneurysm (RAP) is a serious complication that can lead to severe hematuria, blood loss, and life-threatening hemorrhagic shock. A pseudoaneurysm is defined as an arterial wall deficiency that results in the accumulation of oxygenated blood in the nearby extraluminal region. Partial nephrectomy, a parenchymal sparing method, carries a lower risk of postoperative development of chronic kidney disease than total nephrectomy but a higher risk of iatrogenic vascular lesions such as RAP or arteriovenous fistulas...

REVIEW
Jon C Henry, Randall W Franz
Peripheral arterial pseudoaneurysm, while relatively rare, are encountered by most vascular specialists. This review evaluates the epidemiology, diagnosis, natural history, and treatment of pseudoaneurysm in the peripheral arteries. Most of this review concentrates on iatrogenic peripheral pseudoaneurysms, but pseudoaneurysms of other etiologies will also be discussed.

REVIEW
Cody Jo K Kraemer, Wei Zhou
Aneurysms of the carotid artery are rare with multiple underlying etiologies. Treatment is largely open surgery but medical and endovascular therapies have been used based on presentation, anatomy, and etiology. There is a moderate amount of retrospective case series data on surgical results but no prospective data or data comparing open versus endovascular therapy exists. Much research is still needed but difficult to obtain in this rare disease process.

The abdominal viscera blood supply is derived from anterior branches of the abdominal aorta. Visceral artery aneurysms (VAAs) include aneurysms of the following arteries and their branches: the celiac artery, the hepatic artery, the splenic artery, the superior mesenteric artery, the inferior mesenteric artery, the pancreaticoduodenal artery, and the gastroduodenal artery. Overall VAAs comprise < 2% of all types of arterial aneurysms. Asymptomatic VAAs are now being encountered more frequently due to the widespread use of advanced diagnostic abdominal imaging...

Popliteal artery aneurysms (PAAs) are the most common peripheral artery aneurysms. They are frequently symptomatic and are associated with high rates of morbidity and limb loss. PAA can be treated by open or endovascular means, although there are no specified recommendations guiding treatment choice. This article delineates many of the differences between open and endovascular repair of asymptomatic PAA, and highlights several key articles comparing open and endovascular repair to guide decision making. Proper diagnosis and choice of repair can lead to good outcomes in the treatment of asymptomatic PAA...

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for anomalous right coronary artery (RCA), originating from the left coronary cusp is challenging, because of the difficulty in engaging the guiding catheter coaxially, and delivering balloons and stents. A 65-year-old man with effort angina underwent PCI for anomalous RCA. This report describes the method we used. Although, delivering the balloon was difficult in short of the guiding catheter's backup force, we finally succeeded by using one more guiding catheter and the balloon-anchored CoKatte ® , a novel, straight 4...

The dogma for optimal arteriovenous fistula (AVF) creation is based on starting as distally as possible on the upper limb and progressing proximally. We herein present our findings of an AVF that is as distal as possible on the hand. To document primary patency rates of the distal-to-snuffbox AVF. A 10-year prospective study (2006-2016) involving 31 patients whose distal cephalic vein diameter was ≥3 mm with a normal Allen's test was conducted. Patients were excluded if the radial artery in the wrist was highly calcified, the cephalic vein did not dilate more than 3 mm with proximal compression, and there was previously failed AVF of the limb or previous trauma to the limb...

Simultaneous multivessel epicardial coronary artery thrombosis is an uncommon finding in acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). It generally leads to cardiogenic shock and sudden cardiac death in the hospital. We report a 42-year-old male patient presenting with acute anterior STEMI with triple coronary artery thrombosis. An emergency coronary angiogram showed total occlusion of the left anterior descending artery (LAD) with thrombus formation. At the same time, thrombus formations were also seen in the circumflex artery (CXA), the second obtuse marginal (OM2) branch, and the distal right coronary artery (RCA)...
