Persistent sciatic artery (PSA) is a rare congenital vascular malformation. In this article, we have described the case of a 66-year-old woman presenting with a pulsatile mass in the left buttock and bilateral lower limb ischemia, who underwent surgical therapy. Preoperative computed tomography scanning showed a left thrombosed PSA aneurysm (PSAA) with(More)
We describe a rare case of surgical treatment for a repeated contained rupture of an infected abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) with concomitant vertebral erosion. A 59-year-old man presented to a nearby hospital with abdominal pain and fever. On admission, computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a contained rupture of AAA, but the patient declined the offer(More)
BACKGROUND Rupture of an iliac artery aneurysm is rare but could be catastrophic unless it is treated with an appropriate strategy. We reviewed our 10-year institutional experience in treating iliac artery aneurysms to elucidate the effectiveness of open surgical repair strategies for ruptured iliac artery aneurysms in terms of short- and long-term(More)
Acute aortic occlusion is a rare but catastrophic pathology with high mortality even after revascularization. We describe four patients who underwent thrombectomy or bypass surgery for acute aortic occlusion with concomitant internal iliac artery occlusion. Two patients (82- and 75-year-old men), who had insufficient reperfusion of bilateral internal iliac(More)
We describe the influence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacteremia on histopathological alteration of a glutaraldehyde-fixed equine pericardial roll (EPR) graft in a 77-year-old male who underwent in-situ EPR replacement of a ruptured infected abdominal aorta with concomitant repair of the perforated duodenum. The patient died of(More)
The patient, a 55-year-old female Jehovah's Witness who had suffered type B aortic dissection since the age of 53 years, presented with enlargement of the false lumen in the distal aortic arch and was subsequently admitted to our hospital. While hospitalized, her enlarged false lumen ruptured and she underwent replacement of the distal aortic arch and(More)
An 84-year-old woman with a history of surgery for cholangiocarcinoma presented to Akita University Hospital with severe right lower abdominal pain, respiratory distress, and hypotension. Computed tomography scanning revealed a ruptured right common iliac artery aneurysm with a massive right retroperitoneal hematoma and a right internal iliac artery(More)
We describe a patient with aortic occlusion due to false-lumen expansion after repair of abdominal aortic rupture in acute type B aortic dissection. A 70-year-old man presented to a nearby hospital with severe lower back pain, and was subsequently referred to our hospital with a diagnosis of abdominal aortic rupture. Computed tomography scanning on(More)
A 56-year-old man with a painful, progressively enlarging pulsatile mass in the bilateral popliteal fossae was diagnosed with a bilateral popliteal artery aneurysm (PAA) and referred to our hospital to undergo surgical therapy. Computed tomographic scanning demonstrated a large, middle-type PAA with a rich mural thrombus in the bilateral popliteal arteries.(More)
We describe a rare case of an arteriosclerotic aneurysm in the right-sided descending thoracic aorta with a left-sided aortic arch and concomitant aberrant right subclavian artery. A 76-year-old woman, who was found to have an aneurysm of the right-sided descending thoracic aorta, was referred to our hospital for surgical treatment. Contrast computed(More)
