Kidney Preservation Using Renal Heterotopic Autotransplantation During F-Evar For Complex Residual Type-A Aortic Dissection.

Ann Vasc Surg 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Unit, Ospedale Policlinico San Martino, University of Genoa, Genoa, Italy.

The treatment of type A acute aortic dissection is a challenge for the surgeon, and serious late-complications may occur even after surgical repair. We report treatment following a type A post-dissection thoraco-abdominal aneurysm in a patient who previously underwent ascending aortic reconstruction using a biological aortic valve and Dacron prosthetic graft implantation in emergency conditions. The multi-staged approach consisted in removing the right kidney and performing a heterotopic autotransplantation in the left iliac fossa before positioning a fenestrated endograft (celiac trunk, superior mesenteric artery and left renal artery).

[Vascular causes of clinically unclear acute abdomen].

Radiologe 2019 Feb;59(2):133-138

Klinische Abteilung für Kardiovaskuläre und Interventionelle Radiologie, Universitätsklinik für Radiologie und Nuklearmedizin, Medizinische Universität Wien, Währinger Gürtel 18-20, 1090, Wien, Österreich.

Clinical Issue: Vascular abnormalities are a rare cause of an acute abdomen. They include arterial bleeding and ischemia, the latter being either in the arterial or venous system. The most common cause of an acute ischemic abdomen is acute mesenteric ischemia caused by a thromboembolic occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery, followed by thrombotic occlusion of the portal vein, the mesenteric vein as well as the hepatic veins and the suprahepatic part of the inferior vena cava.

Distal landing zone optimization before endovascular repair of aortic dissection.

J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2019 Jan 27;157(1):88-98. Epub 2018 Jul 27.

Department of Surgery, The University of Iowa Roy and Lucille Carver College of Medicine, Iowa City, Iowa.

Background: The general goals of endovascular management in chronic distal thoracic aortic dissection are optimizing the true lumen, maintaining branch patency, and promoting false lumen (FL) thrombosis. Distal seal can be challenging in chronic distal thoracic aortic dissection due to the well-established secondary fenestrations and fibrotic septum. We describe our approach of distal landing zone optimization (DLZO) to enable full-diameter contact of the distal endoprosthesis. Read More

Thrombosis in the portal venous system caused by hypereosinophilic syndrome: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Nov;97(48):e13425

Department of Critical Care Medicine, Nantong Third People's Hospital, Nantong University.

Rationale: Extensive thrombosis in the portal venous system caused by hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) is rare, and there is no consensus on anticoagulant and thrombolytic treatments for arteriovenous thrombosis caused by HES.

Patient Concerns: The clinical data of a patient with extensive thrombosis in his portal venous system (superior mesenteric, splenic, hepatic, and portal veins), renal artery thrombosis, and mesenteric thrombosis caused by HES with secondary gastrointestinal bleeding and intestinal necrosis were retrospectively analyzed. Before admission, his eosinophil count increased to 7. Read More

Hydroxychloroquine partially prevents endothelial dysfunction induced by anti-beta-2-GPI antibodies in an in vivo mouse model of antiphospholipid syndrome.

PLoS One 2018 6;13(11):e0206814. Epub 2018 Nov 6.

UMR CNRS 6015-INSERM U1083, MITOVASC Institute, Université d'Angers, Faculté de Médecine, Bâtiment IRIS 2, Angers, France.

Background: Antiphospholipid syndrome is associated with endothelial dysfunction, which leads to thrombosis and early atheroma. Given that hydroxychloroquine has anti-thrombotic properties in lupus, we hypothesized that it could reduce endothelial dysfunction in an animal model of antiphospholipid syndrome. We evaluated the effect of hydroxychloroquine in preventing endothelial dysfunction in a mouse model of antiphospholipid syndrome. Read More

Impact of PI3Kα (Phosphoinositide 3-Kinase Alpha) Inhibition on Hemostasis and Thrombosis.

Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol 2018 Sep;38(9):2041-2053

From the INSERM, UMR-S1048, Université Toulouse III, France (P.-A.L., R.S., A.R., C.C., T.A., S.S., B.P., M.-P.G.).

Objective- PI3Kα (phosphoinositide 3-kinase alpha) is a therapeutic target in oncology, but its role in platelets and thrombosis remains ill characterized. In this study, we have analyzed the role of PI3Kα in vitro, ex vivo, and in vivo in 2 models of arterial thrombosis. Approach and Results- Using mice selectively deficient in p110α in the megakaryocyte lineage and isoform-selective inhibitors, we confirm that PI3Kα is not mandatory but participates to thrombus growth over a collagen matrix at arterial shear rate.

Lessons learned and learning curve of fenestrated and branched endografts.

J Cardiovasc Surg (Torino) 2019 Feb 12;60(1):23-34. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Mayo Clinic Aortic Center, Rochester, MN, USA -

Fenestrated and branched endovascular repair (F-BEVAR) has been increasingly used to treat patients with complex aortic aneurysms involving the renal-mesenteric arteries. As with any new procedure, there is a learning curve associated with mastering the technique. However, proficiency with deployment is only one aspect of the learning process, and ultimately, this curve is defined not by one quality parameter, but by patient selection, the performance of the entire team, the surgeon's ability to adapt to unexpected events, and the durability of the repair.

Dichloroacetate, an inhibitor of pyruvate dehydrogenase kinases, inhibits platelet aggregation and arterial thrombosis.

Blood Adv 2018 Aug;2(15):2029-2038

Department of Internal Medicine and.

Resting platelets rely on oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) and aerobic glycolysis (conversion of glucose to lactate in the presence of oxygen) to generate adenosine triphosphate, whereas activated platelets exhibit a high level of aerobic glycolysis, suggesting the existence of metabolic flexibility in platelets. Mitochondrial pyruvate dehydrogenase kinases (PDK 1-4) play a pivotal role in metabolic flexibility by inhibiting pyruvate dehydrogenase complex. We determined whether metabolic reprogramming, diverting metabolism from aerobic glycolysis back to OXPHOS, would inhibit platelet function. Read More

Acute mesenteric ischemia is a highly morbid affliction which requires urgent care. Acute mesenteric ischemia consists in an ischemia injury of the small bowel, secondary to vascular insufficiency, either occlusive (thrombosis, embolism, arterial, venous) or non-occlusive (low flow or vasospasm). Given that the superior mesenteric artery supplies the small bowel as well as the right part of the colon, any ischemic process involving the right colon should be considered an acute mesenteric ischemia until proven otherwise.

Successful use of retrograde branched extension limb assembling technique in endovascular repair of pararenal abdominal aortic aneurysm.

J Vasc Surg Cases Innov Tech 2017 Jun 18;3(2):90-94. Epub 2017 May 18.

Department of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Chinese PLA General Hospital, Beijing, China.

Surgeon-modified retrograde branched extension limb assembling technique and bridged endografts were successfully used to exclude an asymptomatic pararenal abdominal aortic aneurysm and to reconstruct the superior mesenteric artery and bilateral renal arteries in a case with high-grade celiac artery stenosis, nondilated aorta above the superior mesenteric artery, and large lumen below the renal arteries. In patient-specific models for hemodynamics analysis, enhanced flow diversion to visceral arteries up to 6-month follow-up confirmed treatment feasibility; however, endograft configurations could be improved to avoid sharp corners at bifurcations, thereby ensuring smooth flow transport and possibly reducing risk for endograft narrowing or the development of thrombosis.

Incidental Anatomic Finding of Celiacomesenteric Trunk Associated with 'Nutcracker Phenomenon,' or Compression of the Left Renal Vein.

Am J Case Rep 2017 Dec 15;18:1334-1342. Epub 2017 Dec 15.

Section of Vascular Surgery, University of Michigan Health System, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.

BACKGROUND Celiacomesenteric trunk (CMT) is a very rare anatomic finding in which the celiac artery and the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) originate from the abdominal aorta through a common trunk. Clinical associations with CMT include arterial aneurysm, thrombosis, and celiac artery compression. However, an association between CMT and abdominal venous congestion caused by left renal vein compression, or 'nutcracker phenomenon,' has not been previously reported. Read More

[Endovascular treatment of acute mesenteric ischaemia in thrombosis of superior mesenteric artery].

Angiol Sosud Khir 2017;23(4):50-54

Russian National Research Medical University named after N.I. Pirogov under the RF Ministry of Public Health, Moscow, Russia; Municipal Clinical Hospital named after F.I. Inozemtsev, Moscow, Russia.

The article deals with the problems related to acute impairment of mesenteric blood circulation, known as a nosological entity associated with an extremely high mortality rate. The authors point out that there are currently no common approaches to appropriate management of the pathology concerned and define the role of modern minimally invasive methods, which roentgenosurgical interventions belong to, making it possible to rapidly, safely and efficiently cope with the problem of thrombosis of mesenteric vessels, as well as to decrease lethality and improve the prognosis in this cohort of patients. Also presented herein is a detailed description of a clinical case report regarding successful endovascular treatment of a patient suffering from acute thrombosis of the superior mesenteric artery.

Stented balloon fenestration before entry repair using the frozen elephant trunk technique for chronic aortic dissection.

Interact Cardiovasc Thorac Surg 2018 02;26(2):333-334

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Tsuchiya General Hospital, Hiroshima, Japan.

Endovascular fenestration on the abdominal aorta is effective for preventing visceral malperfusion in aortic dissection. We report a case of stented balloon fenestration before residual entry repair using the frozen elephant trunk technique for chronic aneurysmal dissection after ascending aortic replacement for DeBakey I aortic dissection. We recognized poor communication between the true lumen and false lumen in the abdominal aorta, and visceral perfusion depended almost entirely on the proximal large entry. Read More
