Pseudoaneurysm of the deep femoral artery (FAP) due to penetrating trauma is less common and can be a challenging condition for surgeons. The conventional treatment strategy for FAP due to penetrating trauma is open surgical repair. With emerging technologies, less invasive techniques are being used in these patients. We report a 37-year-old male patient with delayed presentation of FAP secondary to a stab wound and treated successfully with ultrasound-guided thrombin injection.

Thoracic endovascular repair (TEVAR) is a safe treatment alternative to open repair for blunt traumatic aortic injury (BTAI). A 29 year-old-female had multiple traffic injuries, including BTAI located in lesser curve of the isthmus close to the left common carotid artery with an isolated left vertebral artery. TEVAR with simple covering of the left subclavian artery was not adequate to prevent the endoleak. We considered fenestrated TEVAR with RELAY® PLUS to ensure blood flow to the left common carotid artery and reconstruction of the left isolated vertebral and left subclavian artery...

We report a rare case of delayed paraplegia triggered by gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding 8 months after thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). A 78-year-old male underwent TEVAR of a descending thoracic aortic aneurysm without a postoperative neurological deficit and was discharged. Magnetic resonance image showed spinal cord infarction from Th8 to L1, and enhanced computed tomography showed a patent Adamkiewicz artery. The ostium of the intercostal artery connected with the Adamkiewicz artery was occluded...

We report the cases of three patients who underwent thoracic endovascular aortic repair for type B aortic dissection in which transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) was used to guide the procedure in addition to fluoroscopy. TEE was found to be advantageous because it can visualize vascular structures along with the guidewire and devices. Furthermore, it provides real-time hemodynamic and hematological information without the need for contrast injection or radiation exposure. Although TEE assessment requires expertise, the efficient use of TEE appears to be helpful for further improving the outcomes of endovascular surgery for aortic dissection...

Intravascular fasciitis is a rare variant of nodular fasciitis, which can be easily misdiagnosed as a tumorous condition. We had a patient with an intravenous mass of a neck vein, and surgical excision was successful. Although all preoperative imaging studies and intraoperative pathologic reports suggested certain tumorous conditions as differential diagnosis results, the final diagnosis confirmed that it was an intravascular fasciitis based on its fibromixoid tissues with the proliferation of spindle cells and positive immunohistochemical staining for smooth muscle actin...

Here we describe the case of a 33-year-old woman who was diagnosed with interrupted aortic arch (IAA) type A and who underwent radical surgery in her infancy. She developed a 42-mm anastomotic pseudoaneurysm in the distal aortic arch. We decided to perform thoracic endovascular aortic repair because of the patient's special request to avoid open surgery. We selected a reversed taper-type leg stent graft for the iliac artery and successfully implanted it without problems. However, the long-term outcomes of the stent graft in young people remain unclear, and careful regular follow-up for a long period is mandatory...

Total arch debranching and thoracic endovascular repair of an aortic arch aneurysm with a left aberrant vertebral artery are rare procedures. A small artery is difficult to reconstruct and anastomose in a narrow thoracic space with a large aneurysm. We describe an 85-year-old man with a fusiform aortic arch aneurysm and left aberrant vertebral artery who underwent a hybrid procedure with reconstruction of the left aberrant vertebral artery at a surgical site in the neck. Postoperative computed tomography images confirmed exclusion of the aneurysm and patency of all arch vessels, including the left vertebral artery...

We present the first case of a large true uterine artery aneurysm, with a 5-cm diameter, in a 35-year-old nulliparous woman who presented with lower abdominal pain and dyspareunia. She underwent successful ligation and excision of the aneurysm using the Pfannenstiel approach. The diagnostic modalities and treatment option for such a case is discussed herein.

Objective : Persistent left superior vena cava without bringing vein (PLSVC w/o BV) is a common thoracic venous anomaly, while aberrant left brachiocephalic vein (ALBCV) is an uncommon condition. We compared the incidences of the two venous anomalies and assessed congenital cardiovascular diseases (CCDs) in adults using computed tomography (CT). Materials and Methods : We reviewed the recorded reports or CT images of 49,494 adults for PLSVC w/o BV and ALBCV in two hospitals. We determined incidences of two venous anomalies and the rate of associated CCDs...

Objective : To determine the effect of switching from the initial direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC) to another DOAC on exacerbation of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Materials and Methods : We retrospectively reviewed the data of patients with advanced cancer who experienced exacerbated DVT during initial treatment with DOAC due to new venous thromboembolism (VTE). After switching to another DOAC for VTE recurrence, changes in the thrombus and bleeding were evaluated for 3 months. Eighteen patients met these criteria...

Objective : We assessed the effectiveness and appropriateness of our original off-the-job training (Off JT) system using data acquired from recruited medical students and doctors. Materials and Methods : We presented our original homebuilt Off JT system, which is simple and inexpensive. In our unique system, we performed anastomosis at the bottom of a plastic pot, which mimics the actual open surgical procedure at a deep site. There were four evaluation points: (A) operating time, (B) performance of anastomosis by semi-automatically analyzing the image with the coefficient of variation (standard deviation/length) of the "bite" and the "pitch," (C) scoring of the total surgical skill evaluated by the trainers according to the Operative Performance Rating System (OPRS), and (D) the relationship of these three factors (A, B, and C)...

Objective : Postimplantation syndrome (PIS) is a postoperative syndrome that occurs after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), accompanied by high fever, leukocytosis, and high serum C-reactive protein (CRP). Its pathogenesis and clinical meaning are still under discussion. Here, we evaluate the relationship between postoperative fever after EVAR and graft fabric focusing on Endologix Powerlink® and AFX® (EPL/AFX). Materials and Methods : From January 2015 to July 2017, data on elective EVAR for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) using mainbody were retrospectively collected...

Prediction of postoperative cerebral infarction after cardiovascular surgery is difficult. The present study investigated whether quantitative evaluation of preoperative cerebral blood flow used in the Japanese EC-IC Bypass Trial (JET) study is useful for the prediction of postoperative cerebral infarction after cardiovascular surgery. First, patients were divided into two groups based on preoperative cerebral blood flow. In an evaluation using preoperative imaging, patients with good or mildly decreased preoperative cerebral blood flow, divided into clinical stage I or II by quantitative evaluation showed no postoperative cerebral infarction...

Kumamoto was hit by a series of strong earthquakes beginning on April 14, 2016. We treated many deep vein thrombosis (DVT) patients and pulmonary thrombosis (PTE) patients. We came up with a strategy for diagnosis and therapy of venous thromboembolism (VTE). For VTE patients, we prescribed anticoagulant drugs, mainly direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC). To evaluate the validity and safety of the medical strategy for VTE in disasters, we investigated the prognosis of VTE patients at 4 months after the initial quake...

Immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related disease, that is characterized by the elevation of circulating IgG4 level and the tissue-infiltration of IgG4-positive plasma cells, can target the cardiovascular tissue, although the diagnosis of IgG4-related cardiovascular lesion is not easy owing to the substantial risk for the tissue sampling. We herein examined the serum IgG4 levels among cardiac patients. In patients who were admitted to the cardiology department (n=477) and those who underwent computed tomography coronary artery angiography (n=401), elevated serum IgG4 level (≥135 mg/dL) was found 23 (4...
