PURPOSE To report a case of post-traumatic internal carotid artery dissection and pseudoaneurysm formation at the C-1 level successfully treated by a percutaneous endovascular technique. METHODS AND RESULTS A 20-year-old female presented 72 hours after a motor vehicle accident with incomplete occulosympathetic paresis (Horner's syndrome), carotidynia, and(More)
PURPOSE Increases in the phosphorylation of a small heat shock protein (HSP20) are associated with cyclic nucleotide-dependent vasorelaxation. The effect of pressure and flow on vessel diameter was studied. We hypothesized that physiologic conditions that induce vasorelaxation would lead to increases in HSP20 phosphorylation. METHODS Flow-dependent(More)
PURPOSE To report the success of a minimally invasive treatment for phlegmasia cerulea dolens without gangrene caused by compression from an internal iliac artery aneurysm. METHODS AND RESULTS An 81-year-old male with a 1-month history of paralysis owing to a hemorrhagic stroke presented with massive edema and skin mottling of the right lower extremity.(More)
BACKGROUND In the setting of arterial injury, thrombin contributes to the hemostatic process by activating the coagulation cascade and platelets. We hypothesized that thrombin also contributes to hemostasis by inducing vasospasm. The purpose of this investigation was to characterize the cellular signaling mechanisms that modulate thrombin-induced vascular(More)
PURPOSE To report a minimally invasive approach to popliteal artery aneurysm (PAA) treatment. METHODS AND RESULTS A 48-year-old male with a 3-cm PAA was treated electively with an endovascular in situ saphenous vein bypass and transluminal antegrade coil embolization of the PAA prior to completion of the proximal anastomosis. Two short incisions at the(More)
BACKGROUND We hypothesized that smooth muscle contraction and relaxation responses in a muscle bath (isometric tension) would be different than responses of intact vessels (isotonic tension). METHODS Bovine carotid artery contractile responses to the catecholamine, norepinephrine, and smooth muscle relaxant, 3-isobutyl-1-methylxanthine, were examined in(More)
PURPOSE Intravascular interventions such as balloon embolectomy lead to endothelial injury. The extent and functional consequences of this endothelial injury are not known. METHODS Segments of bovine carotid artery were equilibrated in a vasomotor perfusion apparatus (VPA). Smooth muscle function was determined by the contractile responses to 10(-5) M(More)
The vasomotor responses of vascular smooth muscle from different vascular smooth muscle beds have not been well characterized. The purpose of this study was to compare the contractile responses of vascular smooth muscle from two vascular beds, the peripheral vascular bed (carotid artery) and the visceral vascular bed (renal artery) to vasoactive agonists.(More)
