Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Kartal Dr. Lutfi Kirdar City Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Arterial injury during internal jugular vein cannulation can cause devastating complications such as stroke, hematoma, hemothorax, pseudoaneurysm, AV fistula, or even death. Acute upper limb ischemia caused by inadvertent arterial puncture during internal jugular vein cannulation has been rarely reported. The present report describes the case of a patient who experienced right upper limb ischemia caused by subclavian artery thrombosis developed during attempted placement of a tunneled hemodialysis catheter via the right internal jugular vein.

A Systematic Review of Total Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair in Treatment of Kommerell Diverticulum Combined with Right-Sided Aortic Arch.

Med Sci Monit 2021 Mar 23;27:e930031. Epub 2021 Mar 23.

Department of Vascular Surgery, Shanghai Pudong Hospital, Fudan University Pudong Medical Center, Shanghai, China (mainland).

Kommerell diverticulum (KD) combined with right-sided aortic arch (RAA) and aberrant left subclavian artery (ALSA) are rare and limited to a few case reports and small series. Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR), which is mini-invasive, is widely utilized in complicated aortic disease. We performed a systematic review of the literature to identify all patients who underwent endovascular repair for KD in terms of technical feasibility and procedural outcomes. Read More

An Interesting Case of a Cold Left Arm.

Cureus 2020 Nov 17;12(11):e11524. Epub 2020 Nov 17.

Internal Medicine, Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center/Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, USA.

Inter-arm variability in blood pressure readings typically signifies arterial disease between the aortic arch and the subclavian artery. The differential diagnosis includes thoracic aortic dissection, atherosclerosis, thoracic outlet syndrome, and subclavian artery stenosis and thrombosis. In patients with prior coronary artery bypass grafting, including the internal mammary artery, several of those conditions can compromise coronary blood flow and lead to myocardial ischemia.

J Am Coll Emerg Physicians Open 2020 Oct 14;1(5):932-934. Epub 2020 May 14.

Department of Emergency Medicine Max Super Specialty Hospital Patparganj New Delhi India.

It has been well established and widely accepted that thrombolysis using recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rTPA) is strongly beneficial for acute stroke patients. The sensitivity of brain tissue to ischemia causes this time dependence of the effectiveness of rTPA. Early recognition and management of a stroke is imperative for positive outcomes in such patients. Read More

Ultrasound-guided double central venous access for azygos vein via the ninth and tenth intercostal veins.

J Vasc Access 2021 Mar 30;22(2):304-309. Epub 2020 Jun 30.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Reproductive and Developmental Medicine, Faculty of Medical Sciences, Kyushu University, Higashi-ku, Fukuoka, Japan.

Some patients with intestinal failure, who are dependent on total parenteral nutrition for long periods, suffer from a lack of suitable conventional venous access points, including axillary, external jugular, internal jugular, subclavian, saphenous, and the brachio-cephalic and femoral veins, due to their occlusion. Furthermore, extensive central venous stenosis and/or thrombosis of the superior and inferior vena cava may preclude further catheterization, so uncommon routes must be used, which can be challenging. In such patients, the azygos vein via the intercostal vein is a viable candidate. Read More

Section of Vascular Surgery, The Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, Pakistan.

May-Thurner and Paget-Schroetter syndromes are rare conditions encountered by vascular surgeons. An updated knowledge about these conditions is crucial for the effective management of patients with these syndromes who are mostly young. May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) is caused by the compression of the left common iliac vein by the right common iliac artery, and it is a risk factor for left leg deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Read More
