Authors present the case report of the pseudoaneurysm of deep femoral artery caused by the injury of the vessel wall during the open femur fracture. This fracture was primarly treated by repoisition and stabilization by the external fixator (Rohr system, Synthes GmbH, Switzerland), which was nine days later converted into the intramedullar osteosynthesis by(More)
Retrospective evaluation of 12-year experience with endovascular management of acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) due to embolic occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA). From 2003 to 2014, we analysed the in-hospital mortality of 37 patients with acute mesenteric embolism who underwent primary endovascular therapy with subsequent on-demand(More)
Purpose: Carbon dioxide (CO2) can traverse the hepatic sinusoids better than iodinated contrast medium and has been used by many interventionalists for wedged hepatic venography during transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) procedures. Our study was designed to compare the extent of the portal vein opacification using either CO2 or iodinated(More)
The left renal vein (LRV) reimplantation into the distal inferior vena cava is considered to be the gold standard of care for symptomatic nutcracker syndrome (NCS). The vast majority of these surgical procedures are performed by open surgery. Experiences with minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery in this field are very limited. We present a case of a(More)
We report on a 72-year-old female with an unusual intracranial bleeding complication after an extracranial carotid artery stenting procedure performed for a tight left ICA stenosis associated with contralateral carotid occlusion. Two hours after the procedure, the initial signs of intracranial bleeding appeared that led to the patient’s demise 5 days later.(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study is to present results of a prospective uncontrolled clinical study. Percutaneous vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty are minimally invasive methods based on polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) bone cement application into the damaged vertebra. This leads to decrease of the pain and vertebral body stabilisation. Oncology disorders of the(More)
A hybrid approach to elephant trunk technique for treatment of thoracic aortic aneurysms combines a conventional surgical and endovascular therapy. Compared to surgery alone, there is a presumption that mortality and morbidity is reduced. We present a case report of a 42-year-old man with a giant aneurysm of the entire thoracic aorta, significant aortic and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate expandable stents healed into vein wall as autologous vein stent-grafts for endoluminal grafting. MATERIALS AND METHODS Balloon expandable stents were placed into external jugular veins of eight dogs. Stent and vein patency was followed by ultrasonography. Five weeks after stent placement, jugular veins with endothelialized stent were(More)
AIM To evaluate the feasibility of liver blood outflow (LBOF) occlusion and its impact on the effectiveness of radiofrequency ablation (RFA). METHODS The experiment was performed on 10 pigs. The animals were divided into groups A and B according to RFA protocol. In group A (n=5) the RFA time was that taken to reach the target temperature of 105 degrees C,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the influence of endovascular therapy of ruptured abdominal or iliac aneurysms on total mortality. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed the mortality of 40 patients from 2005 to 2009, when only surgical treatment was available. These results were compared with the period 2010 to 2013, when endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) was assessed(More)
