Short-term outcomes after percutaneous image-guided cryoablation of symptomatic venous malformations in four consecutive patients (mean age, 42.5 y) are reported. Two patients had local recurrences after previous treatment. Mean preoperative pain was estimated on a visual analog scale at 5 (range, 3-7). Cryoablation was performed in a single session under(More)
This retrospective study aims to clarify the mechanisms, frequency, symptoms, treatment, and outcome of post-traumatic thoracic outlet syndromes. A total of 13 patients (7 men and 6 women) with a mean age of 41 +/- 16 years were studied. Underlying injuries resulted from sports, road, and household accidents. Bone lesions were pseudarthrosis, hypertrophic(More)
Studies on the innervation of the sternocleidomastoid muscle have shown the highly variable arrangement of the nerve fibers originating from the accessory nerve (eleventh cranial pair) and cervical nerves which supply the muscle. The results of 100 dissections described in this study confirmed these variations and led to propose a classification of the(More)
BACKGROUND Thrombosis of the central veins is one of the most frequent complications of implanted venous access devices. Among the first cases occurring in our patients, most were associated with left-sided placement of the ports, with catheter tips lying against the external wall in the upper half of the superior vena cava. Some chest radiographs showed(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the feasibility of endovascular exclusion of popliteal artery aneurysm (PAA) using stent grafts. METHODS The clinical data of all patients who underwent endovascular exclusion of PAA at three French vascular departments between December 1999 and December 2007 were retrospectively analyzed. Outcome measures included graft patency and(More)
The present report describes a case of percutaneous cryotherapy in a 36-year-old woman with a large and painful pectoral venous malformation. Cryoablation was performed in a single session for this 9-cm mass with 24 h hospitalisation. At 2- and 6-month follow-up, the pain had completely disappeared, and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a significant(More)
PURPOSE Evaluate the results of the two modalities used for the treatment of Secondary Aorto-Enteric Fistula (SAEF): In situ Reconstruction (ISR) and Extra-Anatomic Reconstruction (EAR). The primary endpoints of this study were early standard 30-day mortality and reinfection (RI). Secondary endpoints were perioperative morbidity, late mortality, primary(More)
PURPOSE Aortoduodenal fistulas are the most frequent aortoenteric fistulas. They may be primary (occurring after aneurysms of the native aorta) or secondary (occurring after aortic prosthesis). Aortoduodenal fistulas are a rare complication of aortic prostheses. They may be caused by prosthesis infection or due to inadequate prosthesis. METHODS We report(More)
The replacement of arteries with synthetic vascular prostheses often leads to failure when small-diameter or low-flow locations are concerned, due in part to the thrombogenicity of the graft surface. In order to improve long-term patency of these grafts, the concept of endothelial cell seeding has been suggested, the composite structure resulting from the(More)
This study, instigated by surgical observations, and mainly carried out on the dry bone, attempts to analyse both the depth and variability of the anterior and posterior ethmoidal foramina through which pass the ethmoidal aa. The surgical implications of this study relate not only to ligation of the ethmoidal aa. in certain cases of epistaxis, their(More)
