Central venous catheterization is a common procedure performed in the critically ill patient. The complication associated with this invasive procedure is well established. However, complication related to the guide wire is rare. We present a case of knotted and entrapped guide wire following central venous catheterization using the Seldinger method and(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the mid-term outcome and secondary intervention rate following elective open and endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) in patients aged 65 years and younger. METHODS A retrospective analysis of patients aged 65 years and younger who had elective abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (AAA) between 1994 and 2012. RESULTS One hundred(More)
PURPOSE Endovascular repair of popliteal artery aneurysms (PAA) has become increasingly popular; however, long-term patency and limb salvage rates are not fully established. METHODS A retrospective review of all endovascular PAA repairs at our institution (from 2005 to 2012) identified 34 PAAs in 26 patients, of which 32 % presented with acute symptoms.(More)
BACKGROUND Recent international guidance recommends the use of catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) in selected patients with symptomatic iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis (DVT). The aim of this study was to estimate the potential increase in workload as a result of this recommendation. METHODS Using the radiology database, a review was performed of all(More)
Extended venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis has been shown to reduce the incidence of VTE in patients following cancer resections.[1] However, ensuring patients are discharged with the prescription remains a challenge, with junior doctors frequently rotating throughout different specialties. We conducted an audit to assess the compliance rate in the(More)
BACKGROUND The timing of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) following thrombolysis for acute ischemic stroke remains controversial. We have described our unit's experience and performed a systematic review and pooled data synthesis of the safety of CEA in this group of patients. METHODS Retrospective analysis of patients who had undergone CEA following(More)
Spontaneous compartment syndrome is a rare condition and requires urgent surgical treatment to achieve favorable outcome. Several cases have been reported in the literature, and it has been associated with patients with diabetes. We present a case of acute spontaneous sequential compartment syndrome of the lower limbs in a patient with poorly controlled(More)
Along with the rapid development of molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, and immunology, there is a new understanding on the pathogenesis of pituitary adenomas. The pathogenesis of pituitary adenomas is considered to be related with gene mutation, growth factors, cell receptors, transcription factors, and cellular signaling pathways.
