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

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.

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.

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.

Most of the cases described report PAs after carotid patch angioplasty and are associated with infection, often caused by Staphylococci. The management of PAs can be surgical, endovascular, or hybrid. Read More

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

Saphenous vein graft aneurysm and fistula with compression mimicking mitral stenosis.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Jan 4;2018. Epub 2018 Jan 4.

Cardiology, Mercy Medical Center, Mason City, IA, United States.

We present the case of a patient who presented with acute coronary syndrome and was found to have a mass compressing the left atrium. An angiogram revealed a large saphenous vein graft aneurysm with a fistula into a cardiac chamber, presumed to be the left ventricle. The patient also developed a functional mitral stenosis secondary to this mass causing left atrial compression. Read More

External polytetrafluoroethylene reinforcement of varicose autologous vein grafts in peripheral bypass surgery produces durable bypass function.

J Vasc Surg 2018 06 11;67(6):1778-1787. Epub 2017 Dec 11.

Division of Vascular Surgery, Department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery, University Medical Center Mainz, Johannes Gutenberg University School of Medicine Mainz, Mainz, Germany.

Objective: Use of autologous veins as peripheral bypass graft may become critical in the presence of significant varicose degeneration of the harvested vein. External support of such dilated veins with standard polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) prostheses was recommended as an option to use these veins for peripheral bypass. A single-center experience with this technique regarding long-term graft function, secondary reinterventions, and potential graft degeneration is presented. Read More

Service de chirurgie vasculaire, CHU de Morafeno, 501, route d'Ivoloina, Tamatave, Madagascar.

A false aneurysm or pseudoaneurysm (PA) is the formation of a pulsatile and encapsulated hematoma in communication with the lumen of a perforated artery. Its origin is different but most cases are associated with a traumatic event. Currently, the referenced treatment is endovascular surgery but it is not feasible for the majority of vascular surgeons working in a tropical environment. Read More
