The surgical repair of 16 aorto-caval (A-C) fistulas (15 male and one female patient; average age of 61.3 years) is reviewed. Fourteen fistulas were caused by aneurysm's erosion, one by iatrogenic injury, while one followed abdominal blunt trauma. The interval from presumed occurrence to diagnosis ranged from 6 h to 2 years. The presence of an abdominal(More)

Abstract The surgical treatment of 30 cases of vascular thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) in 25 patients is presented. Patients included 17 women and 8 men with average age of 26.1 years. The causes of compression were cervical rib (n = 16), soft tissue anomalies (n = 12), and scar tissue after clavicle fracture (n = 2). Ten subclavian artery aneurysms(More)
Horseshoe kidney presents a special challenge during surgery of the abdominal aorta. The aim of this study was to evaluate the morbidity and define optimal management based on clinical histories of 15 patients with horseshoe kidney who underwent surgical procedures on the abdominal aorta over a 20-year period. There were 2 female and 13 male patients with(More)
A 16 patients with 20 vascular TOS have been evaluated at the our Institute.

Over 95% of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) rupture into the retroperitoneal space. Rare types of AAA ruptures comprise ruptures into the inferior vena cava with aortocaval fistula formation (ACF), ruptures into the duodenum with formation of a primary aortoduodenal fistula (ADF), and chronic contained ruptures (CCRs). This article presents a study of 41(More)
We present the treatment of 17 extracranial carotid artery aneurysms in 16 patients (1 patient had bilateral lesions). There were 15 (93.75%) male patients and 1 (6.25%) female patient, with an average age of 64.8 years. Two (11.8%) aneurysms involved the common carotid artery and 15 (88.2%) the internal carotid artery. Two (11.8%) aneurysms presented with(More)
INTRODUCTION Kidney anomalies present a challenge even for the most experienced vascular surgeon in the reconstruction of the aortoilliac segment. The most significant anomalies described in the surgery of the aortoilliac segment are a horse-shoe and ectopic kidney.
