The purpose of this report is to define the clinical characteristics and outcome of surgical management of vascular complications after interventional cardiac catheterization and to contrast them to those after diagnostic cardiac catheterization. From October 1985 to December 1989, 101 patients were treated for 106 vascular complications after 1866(More)
Functionally significant, nonatherosclerotic, noninflammatory, concentric and tubular stenoses of the abdominal aorta, 4 to 16 cm in length, were encountered in five male and five female patients 11 to 49 years old. Seven patients were younger than 19 years of age. Aortic branch stenoses were common, affecting splanchnic vessels in seven patients and renal(More)
This study identified risk factors associated with rupture of small abdominal aortic aneurysms in patients initially selected for nonoperative management. Sixty-seven patients, 53 men and 14 women, 50 to 91 years of age (mean 72 years) were followed 3 to 99 months (mean 36 months). All patients underwent serial aortic ultrasonography. The annual rate of(More)
One hundred patients undergoing pelvic exenteration (total 69, anterior 13, posterior 18) at the University of Michigan Medical Center from 1964-1984 are reported. All patients were followed for at least 5 years or until time of death. The overall cumulative survival was 66% at 3 years and 61% at 5 years. The age of the patients ranged from 21-74 years(More)
Aneurysmal degeneration of gastroduodenal and pancreaticoduodenal arteries due to acute and chronic forms of pancreatitis is uncommon. Gastrointestinal hemorrhage secondary to these vascular lesions has been recognized in only 23 patients. Eight of these patients, including five with gastroduodenal and three with pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysms, have(More)
Twelve patients (11 men, one woman), aged 18 to 68 years, had major arterial hemorrhage as a direct complication of pancreatic pseudocysts and chronic pancreatitis. Chronic alcoholism (11 patients) and blunt abdominal trauma (one patient) were the basis for pancreatic disease. Spontaneous hemorrhage occurred in eight patients. Bleeding occurred into the(More)
