Variations in the branching pattern of the aortic arch are multiple. The avian form is an extremely rare anatomical variation with only a few reported cases in the literature. Herein we report a case of avian variation with two branches arising from the aortic arch: a bicarotid trunk and a common origin for bilateral subclavian arteries.
OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to assess the diagnostic accuracy of multislice computed tomography (MSCT) for the identification and quantification of mitral valve regurgitation in comparison with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). METHODS Twenty-six patients (15 females, 11 males with a mean age of 44.6±14.1 years) who were in follow-up with… (More)
To determine the frequency of popliteal artery branching variations in a wide study cohort and to investigate the relationship between these variations and infrapopliteal peripheral arterial disease (PAD). A subclassification was proposed for the most encountered type I-A, utilizing tibio-fibular trunk (TFT) length. A total number of 1184 lower extremity… (More)
A 64-year-old man was admitted with massive hemoptysis caused by oropharyngeal carcinoma. Angiography revealed active extravasation from the left carotid bulb. Covered stent-graft placement resolved the bleeding, but the patient presented with recurrent hemorrhage two hours later and was treated with another stent-graft.
PURPOSE We aimed to determine the contribution of vacuum-assisted modified Menghini type needle to diagnosis of ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of the thyroid evaluated by a pathologist at the bedside. METHODS A total of 147 thyroid nodules in 138 patients (122 women, 16 men) were included in this prospective study. Sonographic… (More)
Innominate artery occlusion is a rare condition that can cause symptoms in the anterior cerebral circulation, vertebrobasilar system and upper extremity, while it can also be asymptomatic. We report the Doppler ultrasound and digital subtraction angiography (DSA) findings of the right subclavian artery and right common carotid artery flow by retrograde flow… (More)
OBJECTIVE The study aimed to investigate anatomical variations in branching pattern and anatomy of the aortic arch, and the prevalence of each type. METHODS Between September 2011 and November 2013, angiographic studies of 270 patients (144 male, 126 female) were analyzed retrospectively for variations in branching pattern and anatomy of the aortic arch.… (More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to present our experience in patients with acute traumatic thoracic aortic transection treated by endovascular stent-graft. METHODS From October 2011 to October 2014, eleven patients were brought to our hospitals after suffering motor vehicle accident or fall from height. Computed tomography revealed acute traumatic transection… (More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the relationship between epicardial fat tissue (EFT) volume and left ventricular diastolic function. A total of 63 patients (29 male, 34 female, mean age 57.8 ± 10.9 years) were enrolled in the study. Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and 2D transthoracic echocardiography were performed in 29 patients with… (More)
