Introduction: The rupture risk of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) depends primarily on their diameter and increases exponentially with aneurysm growth. Therefore, giant AAAs, defined as > 13.0 cm in diameter, are rare clinical entities. Report: A giant ruptured AAA that measured >20 cm in diameter was successfully treated by open repair. Conclusion: It remains unclear why giant AAAs continue to grow to extreme size without rupturing...

Introduction: Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) are known to be associated with high fatal outcomes. Giant AAAs are often defined as having a maximum diameter over 13 cm. Large AAAs over 8 cm have demonstrated a yearly rupture rate of 30-50%, which explains the rarity of giant AAAs. Endovascular repair of ruptured AAAs (rAAAs) is increasingly advocated because of the shorter hospital stay and fewer post-operative complications. Nonetheless, outcomes regarding mortality and cost-effectiveness show a large variability and long-term outcomes are lacking...

Introduction: Peripheral artery aneurysms are a rare manifestation of Kawasaki disease (KD), with an estimated incidence of approximately 2% of all KD patients. The case of a 14-year-old girl with past clinical history suggestive of KD is reported; she presented with an aneurysm located in the brachial part of a superficial brachioulnoradial artery, still with the genuine brachial artery in place (an anatomical variation with a reported incidence of 0.14-1.3% in general population). Relevant medical data were collected from the hospital database...

This is the first case report of upper extremity lymphoedema caused by a thyroid tumour. An 87 year old female patient with grade 3 lymphoedema of the upper right extremity was admitted. The lymphoedema had developed over the course of two years. Investigation identified a thyroid tumour, which compressed the mediastinal structures at the right superior thoracic outlet, causing venous congestion, oedema, and lymphoedema. The patient underwent thyroidectomy which markedly improved the lymphatic oedema. Resolution of the compression mechanism was an effective treatment, despite the severity and chronicity of the initial presentation...

Introduction: Isolated iliac artery dissection (ISIAD) without the involvement of the aorta is a rare medical condition. Report: A case of a 38-year-old man with sudden onset of rest pain and paraesthesia on the right lower limb (RLL) is presented. Upon admission, the RLL was pulseless, with mild paraesthesia in the foot. The patient underwent computed tomography angiography, which revealed isolated common iliac artery (CIA) dissection followed by endovascular treatment (stenting) of the CIA dissection, with an instant therapeutic effect...

Introduction: The case of an idiopathic thrombosed popliteal aneurysm is described in an otherwise healthy 6 year old child. This is the fourth reported case and the second youngest patient to present with an idiopathic isolated popliteal aneurysm. Report: A 6 year old boy presented with an acutely ischaemic right foot. Computed tomography angiography confirmed a thrombosed popliteal aneurysm. A femoropopliteal bypass was performed with reversed long saphenous vein and ligation of the aneurysm...

Purpose: To report the endovascular treatment of a full metal jacket (FMJ) femoropopliteal chronic total occlusion (CTO) using a new ancillary retrograde technique. Case report: An 80 year old woman with type 2 diabetes presented to the Diabetic Foot Clinic with critical limb ischaemia with tissue loss in the right leg. Her comorbidities included coronary artery disease, morbid obesity, hypertension, dyslipidaemia, and active smoking habit. The patient had been treated at another hospital by femoropopliteal FMJ stenting six years before this presentation...

Introduction: While traditional ambulatory phlebectomy (AP) is a safe and effective procedure, few adverse effects such as hematoma, bleeding, bruising and nerve injury have been reported. To improve AP and to reduce some of these adverse events, herein we report a novel technique - Foam Sclerotherapy Assisted Phlebectomy (SAP). Report: The details of the above technique, along with the potential advantages and limitations will be discussed. Discussion: Foam sclerotherapy and DUS act as valuable adjuncts to traditional AP...

Objectives: Hydrostatic compression (HC) occurring during body immersion is considered beneficial for venous return from the lower limbs. No study has evaluated the effects of HC on the veins of the lower limbs using duplex ultrasound (DU). The purpose of this study was to use DU to evaluate the morphology and flow of the leg veins during immersion. Design: The femoral and great saphenous veins were evaluated before and during immersion in a specifically built pool, in normal and varicose limbs...

Introduction: Nutcracker syndrome (NCS) is caused by compression of the left renal vein (LRV) between the aorta and the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) where it passes in the fork formed at the bifurcation of these arteries. NCS leads to LRV hypertension, resulting in left flank and abdominal pain, with or without haematuria and pelvic ureteral varices. Report: The patient was a young female with diagnostic criteria of NCS, with severe clinical manifestations. The patient underwent transposition of the LRV approximately 3...

Introduction: Percutaneous endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (PEVAR) using the Perclose ProGlide suture mediated closure device is currently performed on a global scale. A safe, effective, and cheap technique for achieving haemostasis during PEVAR is described that allows the reversible downsizing of the arteriotomy, without using any other devices. Technique: The procedure consists of pulling the blue thread of the pre-implanted ProGlide, advancing the knot close to the arterial wall by pushing it with the dilator of a small introducer sheath, and maintaining the system under tension by grasping the end of the blue thread with a haemostat until bleeding control is achieved...

Introduction: Aneurysms of small abdominal vessels are extremely rare; however, even minor aneurysmal accessory arteries can rupture, leading to potentially fatal consequences. The purpose of this paper is to report a case of coil embolisation of an aneurysmal posterior gastric artery. Case presentation: The authors describe the case of a 66 year old female patient with an aneurysm of the posterior gastric artery. Coil embolisation was performed. The six month follow up computed tomography angiogram revealed exclusion of the aneurysm...

Introduction: Endovascular repair (ER) as a minimally invasive approach can be effective for treating hepatic artery aneurysm (HAA) with gratifying results. Microcoil embolisation is the main technique used in ER. However, the coil embolisation of a large proper HAA (PHAA) with a very wide neck tends to be extremely troublesome owing to the limited length of the inflow and outflow artery. Moreover, it is difficult because of rapid blood flow in the proper hepatic artery (PHA) and the difficulty in preserving its branch flow...
