Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a connective tissue disorder caused by abnormal collagen synthesis. Vascular complications, including aneurysm formation and spontaneous arterial perforations, are difficult to manage surgically and result in significant operative mortality due to blood vessel fragility. We describe the first reported successful endovascular(More)
Recent studies have shown that endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) has decreased costs, as well as decreased intensive care unit and total hospital length of stays when compared to abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair using a retroperitoneal exposure. The authors hypothesized that the fast-track AAA repair, which combines a(More)
Multiple studies have evaluated the effect of anesthesia type on carotid endarterectomy with inconsistent results. Our study compared 30-day postoperative myocardial infarction, stroke, and mortality between carotid endarterectomy under local or regional anesthesia and carotid endarterectomy under general anesthesia utilizing National Surgical Quality(More)
Renal artery aneurysm is a rare entity, and patients are usually asymptomatic at the time of presentation. These aneurysms are rare among pregnant patients, especially after childbirth, and usually form due to changes in vascular wall integrity secondary to hormonal and hemodynamic changes. Here we describe a patient with an intraparenchymal renal artery(More)
Blunt abdominal aortic injury from trauma is extremely rare. It is generally from motor vehicular crashes resulting in dissection, intramural hematoma, or free rupture. Timely recognition and treatment of this injury are essential for a chance for survival. To the authors knowledge, this is the first reported case of successful management of this injury,(More)
A case of a 78-year-old woman who presented with hemorrhagic shock and abdominal pain, and who was subsequently found to have a ruptured aneurysm of the right gastroepiploic artery, is presented. She underwent open surgical resection of the aneurysm without any significant postoperative complication. A brief review of splanchnic artery aneurysms with regard(More)
The "open" repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) continues to evolve with incorporation of less invasive methods for surgical exposure and the use of patient care pathways for shorter hospital stays. In a consecutive series of 30 patients with infrarenal AAA, a "fast-track" hospital care pathway was implemented that included the following: AAA exposure(More)
OBJECTIVE We report 30-day and 12-month results of endovascular treatment with the Valiant Thoracic Stent Graft System (Medtronic Vascular, Santa Rosa, Calif) in patients with descending thoracic aortic aneurysms of degenerative etiology. The Valiant stent graft is an evolution of the Talent thoracic stent graft (Medtronic Vascular). METHODS The VALOR II(More)
Recent improvement in the survival of patients presenting with a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) has been credited to endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). We present our clinical series in the management of rAAA from 2007 to 2011. A total of 55 consecutive patient charts were reviewed. Thirty-eight patients underwent EVAR, 17 of the 55 patients(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the trends in procedure volume, clinical sites of care, and Medicare expenditure for peripheral vascular interventions (PVIs) for lower extremity occlusive disease since the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services instituted reimbursement policy changes that broadened payment for procedures performed in(More)
