A case of bilateral persistent sciatic artery (PSA) aneurysms with thromboembolic complications is presented along with a review of the 167 cases of PSA reported in the world literature. Its embryology, anatomy, clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment are reviewed and provide the following findings: The incidence of PSA is estimated to be from 0.025% to(More)
Solitary profunda femoris artery aneurysm (PFAA) is extremely rare but presents with symptoms related to rupture, distal embolization, or local compression of veins and nerves. We report two surgically treated cases of solitary PFAA. In case 1, a 69-year-old man presented with sudden onset of pain in the left groin. Computed tomography scan showed a large(More)
We describe herein our new method for transecting the pancreas and closing its stump in distal pancreatectomy, devised to decrease the risk of pancreatic fistula formation. With this technique, the pancreas is transected in such a way that a convex stump is left, whereby the pancreatic secretions from the parenchyma near the pancreatic stump are fully(More)
Tuberculous aneurysm of the aorta is an extremely rare disease with a high mortality rate. Only 32 patients treated surgically have been reported in the literature. These reports indicate an 84.4% operative survival rate. We present a case of a tuberculous false aneurysm in the descending thoracic aorta that was successfully treated surgically with an(More)
We treated a Japanese man with aneurysmal dilatation of the bovine graft transplanted for femorofemoral bypass. The reconstruction was performed successfully by the replacement with a Dacron graft 29 months after the first operation. Aneurysmal dilatation was observed over the entire length of the graft, and the wall of the graft was fragile. Disruption of(More)
We report the successful closure of a complicated bronchocutaneous fistula using a pedicled jejunal flap. The fistula, secondary to tuberculosis and irradiation, previously had been closed with a latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flap. This initial repair failed. The recurrent fistulas were closed again using a jejunal seromuscular flap, and the chest wall(More)
A case of jaundice due to obstruction of Roux en Y-limb following hepatectomy for a hilar cholangiocarcinoma is presented. Percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage improved the jaundice but promoted disseminated intravascular coagulopathy. Our limited experience suggested that afferent loops should be drained directly to prevent reflux of enteric contents(More)
Twenty adult mongrel dogs were divided into three groups. Group I: control (n = 7), group II: limb ischemia for 6 hours followed by reperfusion (n = 6), and group III: administration of alpha-tocopherol after 6 hours of ischemia, and reperfusion (n = 7). In group II, serum CPK and LPO increased after reperfusion with peak levels of 38,000 +/- 9,800 mU/ml(More)
