A Case Report of the Intravascular Fasciitis of a Neck Vein Mimicking Intravascular Tumorous Conditions.

Ann Vasc Dis 2018 Dec;11(4):553-556

Division of Vascular Surgery, Department of Surgery, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

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.

Prevalence of Elevated Serum IgG4 Level among Patients Diagnosed or Suspected with Cardiovascular Disorders.

Ann Vasc Dis 2018 Dec;11(4):496-502

Department of Cardiology, Osaka Medical College, Takatsuki, Osaka, Japan.

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.

Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair for Acute Aortic Dissection.

Ann Vasc Dis 2018 Dec;11(4):464-472

Second Department of Surgery, Yamagata University Faculty of Medicine, Yamagata, Yamagata, Japan.

Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for thoracic aortic disease constitutes a paradigm shift in the treatment strategy of aortic dissection, as well as thoracic aortic aneurysms. Conventionally, most patients with Stanford type B acute aortic dissection are treated using conservative medical treatment during the acute phase. However, in patients with complicated type B aortic dissection who present with life-threatening complications, TEVAR has been introduced as a novel and less-invasive alternative and has shown better early results than those observed with conventional therapy.

Ann Vasc Dis 2018 Dec;11(4):458-463

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Saitama Medical University International Medical Center, Hidaka, Saitama, Japan.

In this article, I would like to discuss on the two different treatment options (Open vs EVAR) for pararenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (the term "PRAAA" is not clearly defined and classified). Recently, complex endovascular treatment [Fenestrated EVAR (F-EVAR), Chimney (Snorkel) EVAR (C-EVAR, S-EVAR), Branched EVAR (B-EVAR)] have been developed and applied in selected patients, with encouraging early results; however, the high rate for secondary reinterventions and long-term results remain uncertain. This article introduce new devices and a new concept with endovascular aneurysm sealing (EVAS) are currently available on the market for the treatment of PRAAA. Read More
