Here we present a simple two-step in vitro model of vascularized trophoblastic tissue derived from human embryonic stem (hES) cells. The first step is the formation of cystic embryoid bodies (EBs) in suspension in a semisolid methyl cellulose medium, within which an endothelial platelet/endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1 (PECAM-1(+)) cell network(More)
Mycotic aneurysms are exceptional complications after intravesical instillations of bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) for bladder carcinoma. We report a patient who underwent an emergency operation for a ruptured carotid aneurysm 16 months after BCG therapy. Postoperative investigations discovered multiple other synchronous aneurysms. Culture of an abscess(More)
OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND Persistent type II endoleak (EL II) with sac enlargement after endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm requires treatment to prevent rupture. Embolization is not always effective. Conversion to open repair with stent graft (SG) explantation is a high risk option. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and(More)
Aneurysm formation and recurrent coarctation are common complications of coarctation repair, and various types of treatment have been described. Native aortic coarctation during adult life is rarer and can be responsible for severe complications. We report an original case of thoracic aortic aneurysm associated with native coarctation successfully treated(More)
The main cause of death and long-term disability of patients undergoing carotid artery surgery is coronary artery disease. To identify the prognostic value of the status of the contralateral artery, we studied the course of 224 consecutive patients in whom one or both carotid arteries were operated on at our institution between 1985 and 1995. The 224(More)
AIM The main cause of long-term death and disability of patients undergoing carotid artery surgery is coronary artery disease. To identify the prognostic value of the status of the contralateral artery, we studied the course of 224 patients operated consecutively on one or both carotid arteries in the same institution between 1985 and 1995.

Stroke after internal jugular venous cannulation typically leads to acute carotid or vertebral arteries injury and cerebral ischemia. We report the first case of delayed posterior cerebral infarction following loss of guide wire after left internal jugular venous cannulation in a 46-year-old woman with a history of inflammatory bowel disease. Our(More)
Closed dislocation of the knee with complete popliteal rupture is an uncommon injury. It requires prompt recognition and treatment to prevent limb loss. We describe a case of acute ischemia caused by complete knee dislocation with rupture of the popliteal artery that was successfully repaired with superficial femoral artery transposition. To the best of our(More)
