Esophageal arteriovenous malformation, a rare cause of significant upper gastrointestinal bleeding: Case report and review of literature.

Intractable Rare Dis Res 2018 Aug;7(3):196-199

Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Internal Medicine, Wayne state University School of Medicine, Detroit, MI, USA.

Gastrointestinal (GI) arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are a well-known source of bleeding with colon being the most common site, but they can also occur in rare locations like the esophagus which may present with life threatening bleeding. We report the case of a 51-year-old male with end stage renal disease (ESRD) presenting with hematemesis and acute on chronic anemia. Further investigation showed an esophageal AVM which is an unusual location and it was successfully treated with an endoscopic clip instead of argon plasma coagulation (APC) due to its challenging location and esophageal wall motion from breathing.

Intracranial Venous Hypertension Induced by Superior Vena Cava Syndrome Mimicking Cavernous Dural Arteriovenous Fistula.

World Neurosurg 2018 Oct 23;118:265-268. Epub 2018 Jul 23.

Department of Neurosurgery, School of Medicine, Chungnam National University Hospital, Daejeon, Korea.

Background: Known facts are that a long period of central catheterization or hemodialysis causes central venous occlusion or stenosis and its further development brings about superior vena cava syndrome. Major symptoms of superior vena cava syndrome include venous congestion caused by the occlusion or stenosis of the central vein in the sites of the head, face, neck, and upper extremity. Clinical manifestations of superior vena cava syndrome are less likely to cause intracranial hypertension, and intracranial venous hypertension does not appear to be a clinical symptom of cavernous sinus-dural arteriovenous fistula.

Toward longitudinal studies of hemodynamically induced vessel wall remodeling.

Int J Artif Organs 2018 Nov 12;41(11):714-722. Epub 2018 Jul 12.

6 Department of Management, Information and Production Engineering, University of Bergamo, Dalmine, Italy.

Introduction:: Autogenous arteriovenous fistula is the preferred vascular access for hemodialysis, but it has high rates of non-maturation and early failure due to vascular stenosis. Convincing evidence supports a key role of local hemodynamics in vascular remodeling, suggesting that unsteady and disturbed flow conditions may be related to stenosis formation in arteriovenous fistula. The purpose of our study was to explore the feasibility of coupling contrast-free magnetic resonance imaging and computational fluid dynamics in longitudinal studies to identify the role of local hemodynamic changes over time in inducing vessel wall remodeling in arteriovenous fistula.

Effect of angiotensin-converting enzyme blockade, alone or combined with blockade of soluble epoxide hydrolase, on the course of congestive heart failure and occurrence of renal dysfunction in Ren-2 transgenic hypertensive rats with aorto-caval fistula.

Physiol Res 2018 Jul 12;67(3):401-415. Epub 2018 Mar 12.

Center for Experimental Medicine, Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine, Prague 4, Czech Republic.

We showed recently that increasing kidney epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs) by blocking soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH), an enzyme responsible for EETs degradation, retarded the development of renal dysfunction and progression of aorto-caval fistula(ACF)-induced congestive heart failure (CHF) in Ren-2 transgenic hypertensive rats (TGR). In that study the final survival rate of untreated ACF TGR was only 14 % but increased to 41 % after sEH blockade. Here we examined if sEH inhibition added to renin-angiotensin system (RAS) blockade would further enhance protection against ACF-induced CHF in TGR. Read More

A new endovascular technique for the treatment of dialysis-associated steal syndrome.

Vascular 2018 Jun 8;26(3):335-337. Epub 2017 Nov 8.

Vascular Institute of New York, Brooklyn, NY, USA.

Background Dialysis access-associated steal syndrome is a major complication of arteriovenous fistula creation whereby the low-resistance venous conduit shunts arterial inflow through the anastomosis, resulting in clinically significant distal artery insufficiency. Herein, we describe a case of severe steal phenomenon with gangrene of a digit following placement of an arteriovenous fistula that was treated with a novel, entirely endovascular technique. To our knowledge, this was the first totally endovascular approach to dialysis access-associated steal syndrome. Read More

Angiol Sosud Khir 2017;23(3):163-166

Department of Vascular Surgery, Municipal Multimodality Hospital No2, Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Presented herein is a clinical case report concerning open surgical treatment of an arteriovenous fistula of the renal artery with a large venous aneurysm in the hilum of the right kidney and a giant cyst of the upper pole in a 28-year-old woman. The intraoperative findings revealed disunion of the arteriovenous fistula, followed by edge-to-edge suturing of the arterial defect. The venous aneurysm in the hilum of the right kidney was dissected and sutured by the edge-to-edge technique, with the additional varicose renal vein ligated. Read More

Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome with atypical presentation of hypersplenism and nephrotic syndrome: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2017 Aug 21;11(1):243. Epub 2017 Aug 21.

Department of Internal Diseases, Riga Stradins University, Riga, Latvia.

Background: Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome is a rare syndrome; unfortunately, very few studies of the connection between hypersplenism, nephrotic syndrome, and Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome have been published.

Case Presentation: We report the case of a 40-year-old white man with a typical clinical presentation of Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome, including "port-wine stains," varicose veins, hypertrophy of lower extremities, and arteriovenous fistula, as well as an unfortunate development of hypersplenism and nephrotic syndrome.

Conclusions: This case report described considerable atypical relevance of Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome and hypersplenism together with nephrotic syndrome. Read More
