Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Haeundae Paik Hospital of Inje University, 875 Haeundae-ro, Haeundae-gu, Busan 48108, Korea.

Introduction: Leriche syndrome is an aortoiliac occlusive disease caused by atherosclerotic occlusion. We report a case of Leriche syndrome with a fracture that was suspected as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), as the post-traumatic pain gradually worsened in the form of excruciating neuropathic pain.

Aortoiliac endarterectomy as a viable alternative for revascularization in a woman with isolated aortoiliac disease and an anomalous right pelvic kidney.

J Vasc Surg Cases Innov Tech 2021 Jun 28;7(2):277-279. Epub 2021 Jan 28.

Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, New Orleans, La.

Although the use of aortoiliac endarterectomy to treat occlusive disease has declined since the advent of endovascular procedures and operative bypass grafting techniques, clinical scenarios still exist in which it can be useful. We present the case of a patient with right lower extremity pain at rest, an anomalous right pelvic kidney, right common iliac artery occlusion, and severe left common iliac artery stenosis. We have demonstrated that aortoiliac endarterectomy should not be considered an outdated surgical technique but a viable alternative for revascularization in a specific subset of patients. Read More

Symptomatic Diaphragmatic Hernia after Thoracofemoral Bypass.

Ann Vasc Surg 2021 Apr 5. Epub 2021 Apr 5.

Department of Surgery, Divisions of Vascular, VA Boston Healthcare System, West Roxbury, Massachusetts. Electronic address:

Despite its relative underutilization in the primary management of aortoiliac occlusive disease, thoracofemoral bypass is an attractive extra-anatomic surgical option in select patients. Thoracofemoral bypass classically entails passing a graft from the left chest into the retroperitoneal space through a small opening created in the diaphragm. While theoretically possible that this maneuver may predispose to a peri-graft diaphragmatic hernia, currently there are no cases of this complication reported in the literature, nor has its surgical repair been described.

Long-term results of endovascular reconstruction for aortoiliac occlusive disease.

Quant Imaging Med Surg 2021 Apr;11(4):1303-1312

Department of Interventional Radiology and Vascular Surgery, Peking University First Hospital, Beijing, China.

Background: Open surgery is the gold standard for the treatment of aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD). Endovascular therapy has emerged as an attractive alternative for AIOD due to its minimal invasiveness. The aims of the present study were to investigate the long-term patency of endovascular treatment and to compare the outcomes of Transatlantic Inter-Society Consensus II (TASC II) A/B and C/D lesions.

Society for Vascular Surgery femoral runoff score is associated with limb-based patency after aortofemoral bypass.

J Vasc Surg 2021 Feb 3. Epub 2021 Feb 3.

Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Va. Electronic address:

Objective: Despite advancements, aortofemoral bypass (AFB) remains the most durable option for aortoiliac occlusive disease. Although runoff has been shown to be associated with AFB patency, the association of the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) thigh runoff scoring system with patency has not been assessed. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the association between the SVS runoff scoring system and limb-based primary patency after AFB. Read More

A case report of a transcarotid transcatheter aortic valve implantation with concomitant carotid endarterectomy.

Eur Heart J Case Rep 2020 Dec 24;4(6):1-6. Epub 2020 Nov 24.

Department of Interventional Cardiology, Galway Clinic, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland Affiliated Hospitals, Doughiska, Galway H91 HHT0, Ireland.

Background: Transcarotid transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a worthwhile substitute in patients who might otherwise be inoperable; however, it is applied in <10% of TAVI cases. In patients with established carotid artery stenosis, the risk of complications is increased with the transcarotid access route.

Case Summary: We report a case of concomitant transcarotid TAVI and carotid endarterectomy (CEA) in a patient with bovine aortic arch and previous complex infrarenal EndoVascular Aortic Repair (EVAR). Read More

Accessory renal arteries involved in atherosclerotic occlusive disease at the aortic bifurcation.

J Vasc Surg Cases Innov Tech 2020 Sep 26;6(3):425-429. Epub 2020 Jun 26.

University of California, Riverside School of Medicine, Riverside, Calif.

Accessory renal arteries (ARAs) are embryonic remnants found in more than one-third of patients and occurring bilaterally in 10% of the population. Very few reports have documented such vessels arising near or at the level of the aortic bifurcation. Furthermore, the presence of ARAs has yet to be described in the context of atherosclerotic disease. Read More

Amphia Ziekenhuis, afd. Chirurgie,Breda.

Leriche syndrome was diagnosed in three patients aged 63, 71 and 73. They presented with a wide range of neurological symptoms such as impotence, pain or dysfunction of the lower extremities. Because a neurological diagnosis was initially suspected, there was a delay in two of the three patients before palpation for a distal pulse in the lower extremities was performed. Read More

Long-term results of extensive aortoiliac occlusive disease (EAIOD) treated by endovascular therapy and risk factors for loss of primary patency.

Chin Med J (Engl) 2020 Dec 8;134(8):913-919. Epub 2020 Dec 8.

Institute of Vascular Surgery, Department of Vascular Surgery, Zhongshan Hospital, Fudan University; Center for Vascular Surgery and Wound Care, Jinshan Hospital, Fudan University, Shanghai 201508, China.

Background: Although endovascular therapy has been widely used for focal aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD), its performance for extensive AIOD (EAIOD) is not fully evaluated. We aimed to demonstrate the long-term results of EAIOD treated by endovascular therapy and to identify the potential risk factors for the loss of primary patency.

Methods: Between January 2008 and June 2018, patients with a clinical diagnosis of the 2007 TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus II (TASC II) C and D AIOD lesions who underwent endovascular treatment in our institution were enrolled. Read More

Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of complex aortoiliac occlusive disease secondary to Takayasu's aortoarteritis in a young female.

Indian J Radiol Imaging 2020 Jul-Sep;30(3):405-408. Epub 2020 Oct 15.

Department of Radiodiagnosis, Yashoda Hospitals, Somajiguda, Raj Bhavan Road, Hyderabad, Telangana, India.

As the initial treatment of patients with the iliac occlusive disease, percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) became common. Though not supported by the latest TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus (TASC) II guidelines, percutaneous treatment of complex aortoiliac lesions is possible and provides comparable angiographic and clinical outcomes compared to open surgery at both short- and long-term follow-up, also in complex lesion settings. TASC C and D lesions with the latest instruments, procedures, and modalities may also be managed endovascularly. Read More

Department of Surgery and Physiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Porto, Portugal; Department of Angiology and Vascular Surgery, Centro Hospitalar Vila Nova de Gaia/ Espinho, Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal.

Aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD) remains an area of debate concerning open and endovascular treatment options. A case of a 63-year old female is reported, with previous known vascular intermittent claudication, that presented in the emergency room with acute ischemia of the right lower limb with 24-hours of evolution. The computer tomographic angiography unveiled occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery, occlusion of left common iliac artery (CIA), subocclusive stenosis of right CIA, occlusion of distal runoffs vessels in the right lower limb and diffuse aorto-iliac disease.

The Use of Re-entry Devices in Aortoiliac Occlusive Disease.

Front Cardiovasc Med 2020 25;7:144. Epub 2020 Aug 25.

Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP), Service d'Imagerie Médicale, CHU Henri Mondor, Créteil, France.

Endovascular approach is the first-choice treatment in patients suffering from aortoiliac occlusions. Nevertheless, standard endoluminal revascularization fails in treating occlusions in about 20% (1) of cases. Thus, subintimal revascularization can be a solution, but it fails in 25% (2) of cases as well. Read More
