We describe a case of a voluminous infected aneurysm of the popliteal artery, with Listeria monocytogenes (LM) associated with rupture, in a 72-year old man. After radical resection of the aneurysm a reconstruction was not necessary, because of the sufficient blood supply, due to the pre-existent good development of collateral circulation. The patient was(More)
We report the preoperative diagnosis and surgical treatment of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) in association with a horseshoe kidney (HSK) in a 70-year-old man. Through a median laparotomy a vascular tube graft was successfully used for repair the AAA. The extensive parenchymal isthmus overlying the aneurysm remained intact.
Isolated aneurysms of the iliac arteries are relatively rare conditions that traditionally have been treated by surgical reconstruction. We report our experience with endovascular treatment of iliac artery aneurysms (IAAs) with Anaconda stent graft limb. Two male patients were found to have 4.5 and 3.6 cm isolated common IAAs, respectively. The endograft(More)
We report a case of an arteriovenous fistula (AVF) following osteosynthetic treatment of a fracture of the lower limb 13 years ago. A stent-graft technique had been used to close a high flow traumatic AVF between the popliteal artery and the popliteal vein. The failure to properly evaluate traumatic AVF may sometimes lead to remarkable delay in diagnosis(More)
