PURPOSE To report a technique to maintain flow to an aneurysmal internal iliac artery (IIA) when treating bilateral common iliac artery (CIA) aneurysms with an aortomonoiliac stent-graft and femorofemoral bypass. TECHNIQUE First, an external iliac artery (EIA) to IIA endograft is placed distal to the IIA aneurysm then the contralateral IIA is embolized(More)
Thrombosis of an abdominal aortic aneurysm is a rare devastating complication with an estimated mortality rate of 50%. Simultaneous acute pain, pallor and coldness of the lower limbs, mottling from the level of iliac crests or umbilicus, paraplegia and absence of femoral pulses are all manifestations of a sudden and acute interruption of blood flow through(More)
SUMMARY: The use of 4D simulations within the construction field is growing, however, its application when carrying out true collaborative planning has not yet been fully realised. It is postulated that 4D models are currently utilised as a planning review tool, rather than integral to the initial construction planning process and do not fully support(More)
AIM To determine the effect of the duration of aortic cross-clamping during elective infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair operations on postoperative cardiac and renal function. METHODS Fifty patients scheduled for open infrarenal AAA repair underwent pre- and postoperative evaluation of serum creatinine and troponin levels. The patients were(More)
This report presents a case of type II endoleak after endovascular exclusion of a primary aortocaval fistula, producing renal vein hypertension and renal insufficiency. A 74-year-old patient presented with acute renal insufficiency, hematuria, lower limb edema, and weight gain. The abdominal CT scan revealed an abdominal aortic aneurysm and an aortocaval(More)
Trauma involving the subclavian and axillary arteries is relatively infrequent. However, it can result in devastating functional disability of the upper limb due to significant and permanent associated neurologic deficits. Uncertainty exists in relation to certain aspects of therapeutical management of patients with trauma of the upper limb. Although(More)
