Anticoagulation is the accepted therapy for patients with thromboembolic disease. When contraindications to anticoagulant therapy are present, however, interruption of the inferior vena cava (IVC) may prevent pulmonary embolism (PE). The objective of this study was to report our early technical and clinical results with retrievable IVC filters (IVCFs) for(More)

Temporary inferior vena cava filters (IVCFs) offer protection against pulmonary embolism (PE) during the early, highest-risk perioperative and immediate injury period, while avoiding potential long-term sequelae of a permanent(More)
Saphenous vein is the most widely used conduit for arterial bypass procedures and aneurysms of the vein graft are rare. We report a true aneurysm of a reversed femoropopliteal saphenous vein graft implanted nine years earlier. Duplex ultrasonography identified an aneurysm of the saphenous vein graft and arteriography confirmed this finding. A consideration(More)
A case of traumatic superior mesenteric arteriovenous fistula (SMAVF) and aortic pseudoaneurysm successfully treated by a unique combination of operative and endovascular techniques with a 20-year follow-up is reviewed. After 20 years, the patient presented with an aortoenteric fistula, which was managed with a cryopreserved aortic interposition graft. In(More)
