Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is an uncommon heterogenous autosomal dominant multisystemic connective tissue disorder, which may potentially present with life-threatening emergencies. The prevalence of EDS of all subtypes is from 1 in 10 000 to 1 in 20 000. Pregnancy in women with type IV EDS poses significant challenges, necessitating the care of multidisciplinary team. Read More

Introduction: Veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) is a form of temporary mechanical circulatory support commonly used during cardiothoracic interventions. Malperfusion during complex vascular procedures remains a significant risk that may potentially lead to multiple complications. Here, we report two cases highlighting the efficacy of VA-ECMO in both planned and emergent vascular interventions. Read More

Surgical planning for aortic aneurysm repair is a difficult task. In addition to the morphological features obtained from medical imaging, alternative features obtained with computational modeling may provide additional useful information. Though numerical studies are noninvasive, they are often time-consuming, especially when we need to study and compare multiple repair scenarios, because of the high computational complexity.

Objectives: The open-style stent graft technique has been changing the strategy for true distal arch aneurysms extending to the descending aorta. Our mid-term results of surgical repair using a J-graft open stent graft are presented.Methods: Between May 2015 and June 2020, 69 patients with a distal arch aneurysm (53 males, median age 74 years) underwent total arch replacement combined with J-graft open stent deployment.

The physiologic role of the kidneys is dependent on the normal structure and functioning of the renal vasculature. Knowledge and understanding of the embryologic basis of the renal vasculature are necessary for the radiologist. Common anatomic variants involving the renal artery (supernumerary arteries and prehilar branching) and renal vein (supernumerary veins, delayed venous confluence, retroaortic or circumaortic vein) may affect procedures like renal transplantation, percutaneous biopsy, and aortic aneurysm repair.
