Pancreatic and biliary fistulas and delayed gastric emptying are the most common complications after pancreatoduodenectomy. The development and bleeding of visceral arterial pseudoaneurysms are rare phenomena and pose diagnostic and treatment dilemmas. We describe 5 recent patients who developed bleeding from visceral artery pseudoaneurysms after(More)
We sought to determine the role of an abnormal ankle-brachial index (ABI) in an African-American population with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD) referred for diagnostic coronary angiography. In this population, an ABI < or =0.90 predicted the presence of > or =3-vessel or left main CAD with a sensitivity of 85% and specificity of 77%. However, a(More)
Laparoscopic techniques used to manage asymptomatic splenic artery aneurysms have been reported infrequently. A laparoscopic splenic artery aneurysm resection was attempted for six consecutive patients. One patient underwent conversion to laparotomy because of a tear in the splenic vein. Among the five successful laparoscopic splenic artery aneurysm(More)
Changes in posture of the lower extremities induce changes in skin blood flow, known as veno-arteriolar response (VAR). We investigated the relationship between ankle brachial index (ABI) and VAR in patients (ABI<0.9) with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and age-matched normal controls (ABI>1). We measured ankle pressure, ABI at rest, and post-exercise(More)
