Implications of secondary aortic intervention after thoracic endovascular aortic repair for acute and chronic type B dissection.

J Vasc Surg 2018 Dec 12. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy, University of Florida, Gainesville, Fla.

Background: Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) has become a mainstay of therapy for acute and chronic type B aortic dissection (TBAD). Dynamic aortic morphologic changes, untreated dissected aorta, and persistent false lumen perfusion have significant consequences for reintervention after TEVAR for TBAD. However, few reports contrast differences in secondary aortic intervention (SAI) after TEVAR for TBAD or describe their influence on mortality. Read More

Curr Treat Options Cardiovasc Med 2018 Nov 13;20(12):103. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Adult Congenital and Cardiovascular Genetics Center, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, University of Minnesota Medical Center, Minneapolis, MN, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Numerous studies have begun to unravel the genetic basis of not only aortic disease but also other forms of commonly encountered vascular diseases. The goal of this review is to provide clinicians a reference to help identify and diagnose different types of vascular disease with a genetic underpinning.

Recent Findings: Ongoing studies have identified numerous genes involved in the TGF-β signaling pathway that are also associated with thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection, and it is possible to test for pathogenic variants in these genes in the clinical setting using commercially available genetic testing panels.

Pulmonary and mediastinal paragangliomas: rare endothoracic malignancies with challenging diagnosis and treatment.

J Thorac Dis 2018 Sep;10(9):5318-5327

Division of Pathology, Department of Emergency and Organ Transplantation, University of Bari "Aldo Moro", Bari, Italy.

Background: Pulmonary and mediastinal paragangliomas are rare tumors that may have neuroendocrine activity or be non-functional, incidental, in asymptomatic patients, or causing mass effect symptoms. Although being low-grade tumors, they can display an aggressive behaviour, developing local infiltration and distant metastases. We report our experience with three endothoracic paragangliomas and a Literature review, to point out diagnostic difficulties and problems related to surgical treatment. Read More

Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol 2018 Nov 9. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Mayo Clinic Aortic Center and Advanced Endovascular Aortic Research Program, Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.

Acute aortic syndromes include a variety of overlapping clinical and anatomic diseases. Penetrating aortic ulcer (PAU), intramural hematoma (IMH) and aortic dissection can occur as isolated processes or can be found in association. All these entities are potentially life threatening, so prompt diagnosis and treatment is of paramount importance. Read More

Central Artery Stiffness and Thoracic Aortopathy.

Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol 2018 Nov 9. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Yale University, United States.

Thoracic aortopathy - especially aneurysm, dissection, and rupture - is responsible for significant morbidity and mortality. Uncontrolled hypertension and aging are primary risk factors for such conditions and they contribute, respectively, to increasing the mechanical stress on the wall and increasing its structural vulnerability. Select genetic mutations also predispose to these lethal conditions, and the collection of known mutations suggests that dysfunctional mechanosensing and mechanoregulation of extracellular matrix may contribute to pathogenesis and disease progression.

The Majority of Piriformis Muscles are Innervated by the Superior Gluteal Nerve.

Clin Anat 2018 Nov 8. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

Seattle Science Foundation, Seattle, WA, USA.

Introduction: The piriformis muscle is clinically implicated in pain disorders, posterior approaches for total hip arthroplasty, and iatrogenic injury to the muscle and the surrounding nerves. The piriformis muscle has been said to receive innervation from L5 to S3 ventral rami with most sources using S1 and S2 ventral rami as the most common innervation this muscle. However, descriptions of the nerve in the literature are vague. Read More

A laparoscopic approach for removal of ovarian remnant tissue in 32 dogs.

BMC Vet Res 2018 Nov 7;14(1):333. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Department of Clinical Sciences of Companion Animals, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Utrecht University, Yalelaan 108, 3584CM, Utrecht, the Netherlands.

Background: Surgical treatment of ovarian remnant syndrome (ORS) in dogs usually necessitates large celiotomies and considerable manipulation of organs because of the relatively deep position of ovarian remnant tissue, large patient size, and often encountered adhesions. In women, laparoscopic treatment of ORS is successful and has significant advantages over laparotomy. Since laparoscopic ovariectomy has significant advantages over open ovariectomy in dogs, including reduced surgical stress and postoperative pain and shorter convalescence period, the rationale for a laparoscopic approach of canine ORS is evident.

Eosinophilic inflammation in spontaneous coronary artery dissection: A potential therapeutic target?

Med Hypotheses 2018 Dec 24;121:91-94. Epub 2018 Sep 24.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Department of Medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, United States. Electronic address:

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD), defined as non-traumatic, non-iatrogenic dissociation of coronary vessel wall resulting from intimal disruption or intramural hemorrhage, represents an important cause of sudden death and myocardial infarction among young or middle-aged women without conventional risk factors for atherosclerosis. On histopathological examination, SCAD is featured by prominent eosinophilic infiltration of the adventitia or periadventitial layer of coronary artery. It has been estimated that approximately 15-30% of SCAD patients experience recurrent episodes of dissection despite medical therapy. Read More
