PURPOSE To describe the candy-plug technique using an Excluder aortic extender for distal occlusion of a large false lumen aneurysm in chronic aortic dissection. TECHNIQUE A 60-year-old female patient with a history of chronic type B aortic dissection and high-dose steroid use for Churg-Strauss syndrome developed a large 6.2 cm maximum diameter false(More)
Endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) requires further intervention in 20-30 % of cases, often due to type II endoleak (T2EL). Management options for T2EL include transarterial embolization, direct puncture (DP), or transcaval embolization. We report the case of an 80-year-old man with T2EL who successfully underwent DP embolization. Embolization by DP was(More)
Atrial myxoma is the most common benign tumor of the heart. Patients who have atrial myxoma usually present with cardiac obstruction, arrhythmia, or peripheral embolization. We encountered an unusual case of acute upper extremity ischemia due to a massive atrial myxoma in a young man. A 38-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with an acute onset of(More)
A 63-year-old man was transported to the emergency medical center due to blunt chest trauma combined with a fractured left leg caused by a motorcycle accident. He complained of severe dyspnea. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography revealed chronic aortic dissection DeBakey III, mediastinal hematoma of high density just above the diaphragm around the aorta,(More)
We present a 52-year-old male with a syphilitic aortic arch aneurysm accompanied by relevant extensive cerebral infarction. He was admitted to a local hospital for sudden loss of consciousness, where he was diagnosed with serious cerebral infarction. During his treatment, a multilocular aortic arch aneurysm involving the arch vessels was found incidentally.(More)
OBJECTIVE Traumatic rupture of the thoracic aorta is a life-threatening injury requiring urgent surgical intervention. Despite recent improvements in resuscitation and emergency operative techniques, the outcomes of patients with multiple injuries are still associated with a high mortality rate. We retrospectively examined the preoperative demographic data,(More)
The survival rate of cardiac rupture due to blunt trauma is generally low. We experienced a case with right ventricular rupture due to blunt trauma. The patient was a 49-year-old man who was crushed in a traffic accident and transported to a local hospital in a shock state. He was diagnosed with cardiac tamponade due to cardiac rupture, and for pericardial(More)
The patient was a 69-year-old male who had had percutaneous transvenous mitral commissurotomy (PTMC) 15 years ago, and had stopped taking warfarin after PTMC. He was transferred to our emergency room( ER) because of sudden severe pain in his both lower legs. We recognized pulselessness in his both femoral arteries, and pallor, paresthesia and poikilothermia(More)
A woman in her 80s with an infrarenal aortic aneurysm was scheduled for endovascular aortic repair (EVAR). The aneurysm had a severely angulated neck (SAN), and the Zenith Flex device was selected. Completion angiography showed migration of the main body resulting in right renal artery stenosis. A Palmaz genesis was placed across the renal orifice. The(More)
A man in his 80s underwent urgent endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) for a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (RAAA). Surgery was completed without apparent complications, and the patient was returned to the Cardiac Care Unit. Two hours later, he again developed shock, and contrast-enhanced Computed Tomography showed extravasation from a type II endoleak(More)
