Late onset paraplegia after endovascular repair of type B aortic dissection managed by urgent left subclavian artery revascularization: case report.

Ann Vasc Surg 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Department of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, "San Giovanni-Addolorata Hospital", Via dell'Amba Aradam 9, 00184 Rome (RM), Italy.

Spinal cord ischemia is one of the most unpredictable and feared complication following open surgical or endovascular thoracic aortic repair. Protection of collateral network branches that contribute blood supply to spinal cord is fundamental in the prevention of this catastrophic condition. We report the case of a patient who underwent emergent endovascular treatment for a type B aortic dissection complicated by rupture of the false lumen, with intentional coverage of the left subclavian artery without revascularization.

Vascularization of the maxilla by a branch of the submandibular artery.

J Stomatol Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Centre hospitalier Intercommunal, Chirurgie Maxillo-faciale, Villeneuve Saint Georges 94195, France; CHU Bouaké, Bouaké, Ivory Coast.

Vascular variations are common. A cervicofacial anatomical dissection carried out at the anatomy laboratory allowed us to document a rare vascular variation. The facial artery did not give rise to branches that led to the submandibular gland; an artery arising directly from the external carotid artery vascularized the submandibular gland and gave rise to the ascending palatine artery that led to the maxilla.

Extracranial-intracranial bypass approach to cerebral revascularization: a historical perspective.

Neurosurg Focus 2019 Feb;46(2):E2

1Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Virginia Health System, Charlottesville, Virginia; and.

While the majority of cerebral revascularization advancements were made in the last century, it is worth noting the humble beginnings of vascular surgery throughout history to appreciate its progression and application to neurovascular pathology in the modern era. Nearly 5000 years of basic human inquiry into the vasculature and its role in neurological disease has resulted in the complex neurosurgical procedures used today to save and improve lives. This paper explores the story of the extracranial-intracranial approach to cerebral revascularization. Read More

Neurosurg Focus 2019 Feb;46(2):E6

3Department of Radiology, and.

Spontaneous cervical artery dissection (sCAD) is a major cause of stroke in young adults. Multiple sCAD is a rarer, more poorly understood presentation of sCAD that has been increasingly attributed to cervical trauma such as spinal manipulation or genetic polymorphisms in extracellular matrix components. The authors present the case of a 49-year-old, otherwise healthy woman, who over the course of 2 weeks developed progressive, hemodynamically significant, bilateral internal carotid artery and vertebral artery dissections.

Posterior Inferior Cerebellar Artery Originating from the Jugular Branch of the Ascending Pharyngeal Artery.

NMC Case Rep J 2019 Jan 18;6(1):21-24. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Department of Neurosurgery, Faculty of Medicine, Fukuoka University, Fukuoka, Fukuoka, Japan.

The variation in which the posterior inferior cerebellar artery arises from the hypoglossal branch of the ascending pharyngeal artery is thought to be related to the remnant of the primitive hypoglossal artery, and is referred to as a primitive hypoglossal artery variant. Cases in which the posterior inferior cerebellar artery arises from the jugular branch of the ascending pharyngeal artery are extremely rare. The authors present a case of a 50-year-old male with vertebral artery dissection who had this extremely rare variation bilaterally. Read More

Vessel wall injury after stent retriever thrombectomy for internal carotid artery occlusion with a duplicated middle cerebral artery.

World Neurosurg 2018 Dec 6. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Divisions of Neurology, Saiseikai Fukuoka General Hospital, Fukuoka City, Fukuoka, Japan.

Background: There is increasing experimental evidence that stent retriever thrombectomy (SRT) may cause arterial wall damage, although histopathological findings focused on vessel wall injury after SRT have not fully been reported in humans.

Case Description: We describe an autopsy case of an 82-year-old woman who presented with acute left intracranial internal carotid artery (ICA) occlusion and received SRT. When we attempted to catheterize the M1 segment of the normal middle cerebral artery (MCA), we were not aware of a duplicated MCA, and the microcatheter was advanced into the main MCA trunk with a smaller caliber than that of the normal M1 segment.

A Rare Case of Symptomatic Carotid Stenosis Caused by Mechanical Stimulation by Thyroid Cartilage and Frequent Swimming.

J Stroke Cerebrovasc Dis 2019 Mar 7;28(3):699-701. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Department of Neurosurgery, Gifu University School of Medicine, Gifu, Japan.

Background: Bony structures around the carotid artery such as the styloid process and hyoid bone can cause dissection, compression, plaque formation, and plaque rupture of the carotid artery. To the best of our knowledge, this case is the first finding of thyroid cartilage being the cause of a lesion corresponding to adjacent common carotid artery (CCA) atherosclerosis.

Case Description: A 51-year-old man with a history of hypertension and dyslipidemia suddenly experienced right facial numbness and dysphasia while front crawl swimming, which he usually did 3 times weekly. Read More

A literature review concerning contralateral approaches to paraclinoid internal carotid artery aneurysms.

Neurosurg Rev 2018 Dec 6. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Neurosurgery, Mainz University Hospital, Langenbeckstraße 1, 55131, Mainz, Germany.

Ipsilateral approaches remain the standard technique for clipping paraclinoid aneurysms. Surgeons must however be prepared to deal with bony and neural structures restricting accessibility. The application of a contralateral approach has been proposed claiming that some structures in the region can be better exposed from this side. Read More

Horner Syndrome Due to Spontaneous Internal Carotid Artery Dissection.

Cureus 2018 Sep 28;10(9):e3382. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

Neurology, University of Missouri, Columbia, USA.

Horner syndrome is a constellation of neurological findings consisting of ipsilateral ptosis, miosis, and anhidrosis. Partial Horner syndrome, comprising ipsilateral ptosis and miosis in the absence of anhidrosis, is a well-documented but uncommon manifestation of internal carotid artery dissection. We report the case of a 42-year-old male patient who presented with ipsilateral ptosis and miosis and was subsequently diagnosed with internal carotid artery dissection. Read More

Anatomic Landmarks in Transoral Oropharyngeal Surgery.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Nov 30. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Otolaryngology Section, Head and Neck Surgery, Hospital Universitari Germans Trias i Pujol.

Introduction: Minimally invasive transoral surgery for oropharyngeal cancer is a challenge for head and neck surgeons because of the inside-out anatomic presentation and the confined workspace. This study was performed to describe the main neurovascular and muscular landmarks in a transoral approach. The authors propose an anatomic stratification for this surgery. Read More

Endoluminal Atherosclerotic Plaque Debulking Using Enzymatic and Ultrasonic Energy.

J Surg Res 2019 Jan 6;233:335-344. Epub 2018 Sep 6.

Department of Surgery, Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois; Department of Surgery, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Electronic address:

Background: Current procedures to treat severe atherosclerosis are traumatic to the arterial wall and often result in restenosis due to neointimal hyperplasia. We developed a novel therapy using a specially designed double occlusion balloon catheter, ultrasonic wire, and enzymatic digestion solution to atraumatically debulk atherosclerotic plaques.

Materials And Methods: A combination of different enzymes, chemicals, and treatment conditions were evaluated for its effect at reducing atherosclerotic plaque harvested from human carotid artery endarterectomies ex vivo. Read More
