Saphenous vein graft aneurysm: A case-based review of percutaneous management.

Cardiovasc Revasc Med 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

University of California, San Diego, United States of America. Electronic address:

SVG aneurysms are relatively rare clinical entities most often encountered discovered as an incidental finding in patients with prior CABG surgery. There is a substantial risk of complications including rupture and death, thus surgical or percutaneous management may be considered in particular in symptomatic patients. Here, three cases are presented highlighting various percutaneous management options and considerations, including covered stent placement, coil occlusion, and a combined approach with the use of a peripheral covered stent.

Percutaneous treatment of saphenous vein graft aneurysm: Contemporary procedural considerations.

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv 2019 Feb 9. Epub 2019 Feb 9.

Cardiovascular Department, John Hunter Hospital, Newcastle, Australia.

While coronary artery bypass grafting remains an essential component of revascularization therapy, the use of venous conduits in the form of saphenous vein grafts is associated with a number of late sequelae, including graft stenosis and occlusion. The recognition of saphenous vein graft aneurysm, typically a late complication, may be associated with adverse outcomes. We describe the percutaneous therapy of saphenous vein graft aneurysm, utilizing contemporary devices, including newer generation covered stents, and the use of devices more commonly used in peripheral vascular intervention, reflecting the dilated nature of vein grafts.

Cardiology, Florida Hospital Tampa Pepin Heart Institute, Tampa, USA.

Saphenous vein graft (SVG) pseudoaneurysm is a rare complication of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Despite the high mortality associated with SVG pseudoaneurysm, there is no consensus on the optimal management of these pseudoaneurysms as they are infrequently reported in the literature. We report a case of a 55-year-old man with prior CABG surgery who presented with cough associated with hemoptysis and chest pain, and was found to have SVG pseudoaneurysm. Read More

Percutaneous treatment of a massive saphenous vein graft aneurysm.

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv 2018 Dec 27. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

Raigmore Hospital, Inverness, United Kingdom.

Saphenous vein graft (SVG) aneurysms are a rare, frequently late presenting, potentially fatal complication of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. They are often discovered incidentally during radiological tasks such as chest x-ray or CT but can present clinically with symptoms such as worsening angina and breathlessness as well as complications such as rupture or myocardial infarction. Given the risks if left untreated, consideration should be given to treatment either through percutaneous routes or open surgery. Read More

[Combined Thoraco-abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair and Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting through a Left Thoracotomy].

Kyobu Geka 2018 Aug;71(8):588-592

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Yokosuka General Hospital Uwamachi, Yokosuka, Japan.

Approximately 40% of the patients with aortic aneurysm have coronary artery disease(CAD), which is an important factor contributing to early mortality associated with aneurysm surgery. Combined coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)and aortic aneurysm repair of the ascending aorta to the aortic arch is often performed through a median sternotomy due to a good surgical exposure. However, treatment strategy of thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm(TAAA) combined with CAD is often controversial. Read More

Continued Ultrasound Surveillance Required after Hand Ischemia Associated with Trauma in Children.

Ann Vasc Surg 2018 Aug 18;51:119-123. Epub 2018 Apr 18.

Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Department of Surgery, UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX.

Background: Hand ischemia following trauma in children is rare, and the natural history after upper extremity arterial bypass in children is unknown. We hypothesize children with brachial artery repair are at long-term risk of developing aneurysmal degeneration or thrombosis, thus necessitating annual duplex ultrasonography and physical examination.

Methods: A retrospective review of children who had brachial artery repair (bypass or vein patch) for hand ischemia secondary to trauma at a level I trauma pediatric hospital was performed. Read More

Five-year clinical follow-up of the STENTYS self-apposing stent in complex coronary anatomy: a single-centre experience with report of specific angiographic indications.

Neth Heart J 2018 May;26(5):263-271

Department of Cardiology, Academic Medical Center, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Objectives: We sought to investigate angiographic indications for the use of the STENTYS technique and evaluated the long-term safety and clinical efficacy of the stent.

Background: Coronary lesions involving complex anatomy, including aneurysmatic, ectatic, or tapered vessel segments often carry a substantial risk of stent malapposition. The self-apposing stent technique may reduce the risk of stent malapposition and therefore improve clinical outcomes. Read More

Thrombectomy for late occlusion of high flow extracranial-intracranial saphenous vein bypass graft after 27 years of patency.

J Neurointerv Surg 2018 Nov 7;10(11):e27. Epub 2018 Apr 7.

Department of Neurosurgery, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

High flow extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) bypass with a saphenous vein graft (SVG) has been used for more than 40 years in patients with giant aneurysms of the posterior circulation refractory to medical management, and has demonstrated high long term patency rates. We report the case of a patient treated with external carotid artery (ECA)-posterior cerebral artery SVG bypass in 1989 who presented 27 years later with paresthesias and confusion, and was found to have partial occlusion of her SVG bypass graft and a basilar occlusion. She was treated with mechanical thrombectomy of the basilar occlusion via the partially thrombosed graft, the first report of such a procedure through a high flow posterior circulation EC-IC SVG, resulting in improvement of the patient's neurologic examination.

Treatment of giant cavernous aneurysm in an elderly patient via extracranial-intracranial saphenous vein bypass graft in a hybrid operating room: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Apr;97(14):e0295

Department of Neurosurgery, Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University, Wuhan University, Wuhan, China.

Rationale: Extracranial-intracranial saphenous vein bypass (EC-IC SVB) remains indispensable for treating giant cavernous aneurysms. We report an unusual case of a giant cavernous aneurysm in an elderly patient treated with EC-IC SVB in a hybrid operating room. Immediately following proximal ligation of the internal carotid artery (ICA), she suffered an acute intraoperative encephalocele. Read More

Femoral artery transposition is a safe and durable option for the treatment of popliteal artery aneurysms.

J Vasc Surg 2018 08 30;68(2):510-517. Epub 2018 Mar 30.

Vascular Surgery Department, University Hospital of La Pitié-Salpêtrière, Paris, France.

Objective: A suitable ipsilateral great saphenous vein (GSV) autograft is widely considered the best material for arterial reconstruction of a popliteal artery aneurysm (PAA). There are, however, cases in which such a GSV is absent, diseased, or of too small diameter for this use. Alternatives to GSV are synthetic conduits, but with a reduced long-term patency, in particular for infragenicular bypass; other venous autografts of marginal use; and stent grafts still in the first stages of their evaluation.

The History and Evolution of Internal Maxillary Artery Bypass.

World Neurosurg 2018 May 7;113:320-332. Epub 2018 Mar 7.

Department of Neurosurgery, SanBo Brain Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing, China; Department of Neurosurgery, Fu Xing Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing, China. Electronic address:

Internal maxillary artery (IMA) bypass has gained momentum in the last 5 years for the treatment of complex cerebrovascular disorders and skull base tumors. However, some issues regarding this treatment modality have been proposed. As one of the most experienced neurosurgical teams to perform internal maxillary artery bypass in the world (>100 clinical cases), we reviewed the literature in aspects of basic anatomy of maxillary artery with its variations to the lateral pterygoid muscle, initial anastomosis modalities, and subsequent exposure techniques in cadaver studies, preoperative arterial evaluation methods, optimal interposed graft selections, and surgical outcome in the management of complex aneurysms, skull base tumors, and steno-occlusive disorders.

Popliteal Artery Entrapment Syndrome: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Am J Case Rep 2018 Jan 9;19:29-34. Epub 2018 Jan 9.

Service of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Federal University of São Paulo, São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

BACKGROUND Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) results from an anomalous relationship between the popliteal artery and the myofascial structures of the popliteal fossa. The most common presenting symptoms include intermittent pain in the feet and calves on exercise, resulting in lameness. PAES can lead to popliteal artery thrombosis, stenosis, distal arterial thromboembolism, or arterial aneurysm. Read More
