A unique proposed etiology for inferior mesenteric artery aneurysm: A case report.

Radiol Case Rep 2022 Jun 10;17(6):2047-2051. Epub 2022 Apr 10.

SUNY Upstate University Hospital, 750 E Adams St. Syracuse, NY 13210.

The etiology of large artery aneurysms has long been established as secondary to atherosclerotic disease and degenerative changes in the vessel walls. Less common, are aneurysms of the visceral arteries; the splanchnic and renal arteries. Rarer yet, are inferior mesenteric artery aneurysms, accounting for approximately 1% of visceral artery aneurysms. Read More

Extent of mural thrombus is not associated with increased 5-year mortality following elective AAA repair.

Vascular 2022 Mar 24:17085381211063282. Epub 2022 Mar 24.

Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy, 23356Loyola University Health System, Maywood, IL, USA.

Background: Mural thrombus in abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) has been associated with increased rates of aneurysm growth as well as adverse cardiovascular events. The extent of mural thrombus in thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms has recently been linked to 1-year mortality following endovascular repair and has been hypothesized as a marker for reduced cardiac reserve. This study investigates whether the extent of mural thrombus in infra-renal AAA is associated with 5-year mortality following elective repair. Read More
