The operative treatment of 26 aorto-caval fistulas during the last 18 years is reviewed (24 male and two female patients; average of 65.3 year). Out of 1698 cases presenting an abdominal aortic aneurysm, 406 presented with rupture, and 26 had aorto caval fistula. In 24 cases (92.3%) it concerned an atherosclerotic aneurysm. One aneurysm with aorto-caval(More)
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)
Altogether 59 patients with 76 popliteal artery aneurysms were treated during the last 36 years. There were 50 (85%) male and 9 (15%) female patients with an average age of 61 years. Nineteen (32%) patients had bilateral aneurysms. The clinical manifestations of the aneurysms included ruptures 4 (5.3%); deep venous thrombosis 4 (5.3%); sciatic nerve(More)
Anastomotic pseudoaneurysm is a form of false aneurysm, whose wall does not consist of all normal layers of arterial wall. Given the rising number of reconstructive vascular procedures, the increase of anastomotic pseudoaneurysm cases is expected. Therefore, identification of causes, clinical manifestations as well as factors which affect the outcome of(More)
METHODS The authors present the surgical treatment of 20 post-traumatic arteriovenous fistulas and 33 arterial pseudoaneurysms that have been treated in the last 5 years in the Centre for Vascular Surgery of the Institute for Cardiovascular Diseases, Clinical Centre of Serbia in Belgrade. Five women and 45 men (mean age 31.7 years) were examined. There were(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE A ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm is one of the most urgent surgical conditions with high mortality. The aim of the present study was to define relevant prognostic predictors for the outcome of surgical treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS This study included 229 subsequent patients (83% males, 17% females, age 67.0 +/- 7.5 years)(More)
The aim of the paper is the presentation of the treatment of aneurysms of the extracranial carotid artery and review of literature. Aneurysms of extracranial carotid arteries (common carotid artery, external carotid artery and cervical part of the internal carotid artery) are very rate [1, 2]. In 1979 McCollum from the Baylor University (Houston, Texas)(More)
In this study we aimed to define relevant prognostic predictors for the outcome of surgical treatment of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms. The study included 406 consecutive patients treated between January 1991 and December 2003. There were 337 (83%) male and 69 (17%) female patients aged 67 +/- 7.5 years. Fourteen (3.5%) patients had aortocaval fistula(More)
This multicentric Serbian study presents the treatment of 91 extracranial carotid artery aneurysms in 76 patients (13 had bilateral lesions). There were 61 (80.3%) male and 15 (19.7%) female patients, with an average age of 61.4 years. The aneurysms were caused by atherosclerosis in 73 cases (80.2%), trauma in six (6.6%), previous carotid surgery in six(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)
