[Extra-anatomical bypass grafting of the thoracic aorta in a female patient with an infected pseudoaneurysm].

Angiol Sosud Khir 2019 ;25(1):169-174

Department of Aorta and Coronary Arteries Surgery, National Medical Research Centre named after Academician E.N. Meshalkin under the RF Ministry of Public Health, Novosibirsk, Russia.

Presented herein is the remote (more than 15-year follow up) result of successful surgical treatment of aortic coarctation complicated by septic aortitis and a false aneurysm of the anastomosis between the graft and the aortic arch. In 2002, after correction of aortic coarctation the woman was admitted to our Clinic with an incompetent proximal anastomosis and an infected aortic pseudoaneurysm. Taking into consideration the general and local septic process, repeat reconstruction of the thoracic aorta was impossible due to the risk for generalization of the infectious process and fatal complications.

Is there a role for autophagy in ascending aortopathy associated with tricuspid or bicuspid aortic valve?

Clin Sci (Lond) 2019 Apr 2;133(7):805-819. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

Department of Translational Medical Sciences, Università degli Studi della Campania 'L. Vanvitelli', Naples, Italy.

Autophagy is a conserved process by which cytoplasmatic elements are sequestered in vesicles and degraded after their fusion with lysosomes, thus recycling the precursor molecules. The autophagy-mediated removal of redundant/harmful/damaged organelles and biomolecules plays not only a replenishing function, but protects against stressful conditions through an adaptive mechanism. Autophagy, known to play a role in several pathological conditions, is now gaining increasing attention also in the perspective of the identification of the pathogenetic mechanisms at the basis of ascending thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA), a localized or diffused dilatation of the aorta with an abnormal widening greater than 50 percent of the vessel's normal diameter.

Successful endovascular treatment of a recurrent giant celiac artery aneurysm.

Radiol Case Rep 2019 Jun 3;14(6):723-728. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Department of Interventional Radiology, AORN ``A. Cardarelli'', Via A. Cardarelli 9, 80131 Naples, Italy.

Visceral artery aneurysms are very rare and aneurysms of the celiac trunk are the rarest ones: they are in most cases asymptomatic and their detection is frequently incidental. In this article we report the case of a man affected by severe abdominal pain with a huge aneurysm of the celiac trunk, first successfully treated with coil embolization, but, after 10 months, another endovascular embolization was required for deployment of the metallic coils previously released, ahead into the fund of the sac with recanalization of the aneurysm. A second endovascular treatment was performed with other coils and Amplatzer-Plug. Read More

Aortic Bulge: A Possible Predictive Sign of Impending Aortoenteric Fistula.

Can Assoc Radiol J 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Department of Radiology, Faculty of Health Sciences, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada; Department of Diagnostic Imaging, Hamilton General Hospital, Hamilton Health Sciences, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to introduce the aortic bulge sign, a finding observed retrospectively on computed tomography prior to the acute presentation of aortoenteric fistula, and to determine its interobserver reliability.

Methods: Following research ethics board approval, all cases of aortoenteric fistula at our institution occurring from 2011-2015 were identified retrospectively. All previous computed tomography images of patients who eventually developed aortoenteric fistula were reviewed by a single observer for the presence of a potentially predictive finding of fistulization, the aortic bulge sign.
