Aneurysms of the splenic artery that anomalously arise from a splenomesenteric trunk are a rarity. Aneurysmal disease of visceral arteries is found in only 0.2% of the general population. The celiac trunk and superior mesenteric artery (SMA) are involved in less than 10% of all visceral aneurysms. Although rupture seems to occur in 20% to 22% of patients,(More)
BACKGROUND Long-term results of the posterior approach (PA) for the treatment of popliteal artery aneurysms are lacking in the literature. We reviewed our experience during a 13-year period in patients with popliteal artery aneurysms, comparing those treated through a PA with those operated on through a standard medial approach (MA). METHODS Clinical data(More)
A 9.5-cm visceral artery aneurysm was found during a computed tomography (CT) scan performed for abdominal pain. Subsequent selective angiography showed the aneurysm arising from the second branch of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA). The celiac trunk was occluded at its origin and blood supply to the splenic artery was provided through the(More)
Deep venous thrombosis is very frequent after general surgery, and its major complication, pulmonary embolism, is today the most frequent cause of postoperative death. The reduction of this cause of mortality is mainly based on its prevention rather than its therapy. This purpose was achieved by using physical and pharmacological means. During the past 15(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the role of an ultrasound (US) debridement system to treat conservatively patients with poor medical conditions who presented with infection of a prosthetic vascular graft in the lower extremities. METHODS Data of all patients who underwent debridement of the grafts and/or surrounding tissue using an ultrasonic generator (Genera,(More)
