Moyamoya syndrome (MMS) is a progressive disorder. We report a 19-year-old boy with beta-thalassemia who presented with a left hemiparesis. Brain MRI showed old middle cerebral artery and left frontal subcortical white matter infarcts. Brain magnetic resonance angiography and digital subtraction angiography revealed occlusion of the bilateral internal(More)
We present two cases of subclavian steal syndrome from the ipsilateral vertebral artery (VA) to the subclavian artery (SCA), one with the left VA originating from the aortic arch and the other with the left VA originating very close to the origin of the SCA, proximal to the occluded segment. In both cases, angiographic demonstration of these anatomic(More)
We report the case of a patient with 2-month history of chronic thromboembolism of the distal superficial femoral and popliteal arteries with diagnostic features of thromboangiitis obliterans disease. The occlusion could not be crossed by antegrade approach and was achieved retrogradely via dorsalis pedis artery puncture followed by mechanical removal of(More)
OBJECTIVE Haematopoietic stem cell recipients need central venous catheters (CVCs) for easy administration of intravenous fluid, medications, apheresis, or dialysis procedures. However, CVCs may lead to infectious or non-infectious complications such as thrombosis. The effect of these complications on transplantation outcome is not clear. This manuscript(More)
We report a case of erectile dysfunction caused by external iliac artery occlusion, associated with pelvic steal syndrome; bilateral internal iliac arteries were patent. The patient stated that he had experienced erectile dysfunction at similar times along with claudication, but he did not mention it before angiography. He expressed that the erectile(More)
To the Editor, Percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP) is a procedure in which bone cement is injected into vertebrae under fluoroscopic guidance. It was reported to be effective and safe for the treatment of back pain due to compression fractures of the spine [1,2]. As PVP has been successfully used to treat compression fractures of the spine in patients with(More)
PURPOSE To present a case of spontaneous aortic rupture in the course of mantle cell lymphoma and successful management with endovascular repair. CASE REPORT A 69-year-old woman presented with a cervical mass. The patient was found to have stage IIIA and Mantle Cell Lymphoma International Prognostic Index (MIPI) 4. She was placed in an intermediate-risk(More)
The internal and external carotid arteries are usually considered occluded distal to a common carotid artery occlusion but some collateral vessels may provide blood keeping the internal and external carotid arteries patent distal to the occlusion. Most common communication in such a case is diversion of blood from muscular branches of the vertebral artery(More)
