Does Universal Bypass before Carotid Artery Occlusion Obviate the Need for Balloon Test Occlusion: Personal Experience with Extracranial-Intracranial Bypass in 23 Patients.

J Neurosci Rural Pract 2019 Apr-Jun;10(2):194-200

Department of Neurosurgery, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, Karnataka, India.

Aim: Carotid artery ligation carries a potential risk of ischemic complications even in patients with good collaterals and adequate cross-circulation. Preoperative assessment through balloon test occlusion (BTO) is technically challenging and not feasible in all patients. We analyze our experience with universal bypass without performing detailed cerebrovascular reserve (CVR) studies in 23 patients before carotid artery ligation. Read More

Saphenous Vein Graft Aneurysm: A Case-Based Review of Percutaneous Management.

Cardiovasc Revasc Med 2019 Dec 8;20(12):1190-1195. 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 04 9;93(5):927-932. 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.

Hybrid repair for a complex infection aortic pseudoaneurysm with continued antibiotic therapy: A case report and literature review.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Feb;98(6):e14330

Department of Vascular Surgery, West China Hospital of Sichuan University, Chengdu, Sichuan, China.

Introduction: Treatment of infection aortic pseudoaneurysm (PSA) is a great challenge to surgeons for 3 reasons: high mortality for rupture or threatened rupture; potential risk for infection of prosthetic material which probably bring a devastating result for patients; and long-term antibiotic therapy requirement. Endovascular repair is an alternative to open surgery for a less invasive, which is a trouble procedure for aortic PSA with complex aortic anatomy. The purpose of this article is to report the novel hybrid repair of an infection aortic PSA and antibiotics therapy. Read More

Late Development of a Large Arteriovenous Fistula with Aneurysm in an In Situ Vein Bypass Graft.

Ann Vasc Surg 2019 May 31;57:275.e1-275.e4. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

UT Southwestern medical center, Dallas, TX.

We report a case of saphenous vein bypass aneurysm and arteriovenous fistula in a 65-year-old man, 20 years after an in situ vein bypass for occlusive disease. He was found to have patent venous branches which kept the bypass open despite distal anastomotic occlusion. The saphenous vein was successfully excised without distal revascularization due to sufficient native arterial flow. Read More

Saphenous Vein Graft Pseudoaneurysm Repair with GraftMaster®.

Cureus 2018 Nov 14;10(11):e3591. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

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
