After limited experience with eversion endarterectomy of the internal carotid artery, comparison has been made between perioperative results obtained with the eversion technique and with the conventional method. The perioperative results of 715 consecutive cases of patch plasty of the internal carotid artery performed between January 1986 and December 1990(More)
During carotid endarterectomy (CEA) the internal carotid artery is cross-clamped for a period of several minutes. This maneuver may cause cerebral hypoperfusion and/or impairment of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) even in cases where clinical signs are absent. The aim of the present study was to examine whether such alterations could be detected by monitoring(More)
OBJECTIVE Although the association between vulnerable lesions and cardiovascular events is well established, little is known about their relationship to postsurgery restenosis. To address this issue, we initiated a prospective, nonrandomized study to examine the femoral plaques on both sides in patients who were undergoing eversion carotid endarterectomy(More)
Venous (pseudo)aneurysms are rare entities. Herewith we report a case of the right lower extremity in a 42-year-old woman in whom a non-pulsatile mass was diagnosed only by physical examination as a hematoma and was treated conservatively. Six months later ultrasound and phlebography identified a pseudoaneurysm of the great saphenous vein. Post-traumatic(More)
Objective and design: The purpose of the study was to investigate the putative role of soluble thrombomodulin (sTM) in severe carotid artery stenosis. Materials and methods: We prospectively studied 64 patients who were undergoing carotid endarterectomy (2001–2003). Plasma sTM concentration was determined in each patient before surgery and at 14 months(More)
Inspite of remarkable progress in both diagnostic and therapeutic development in treating aortic dissections this continues to be one of the most severe vascular catastrophies complicated by high mortality. While aortic dissections Type A are to treat surgically in our days, in majority of patients with Type B dissections hypotensive treatment is the method(More)
The authors present a case of moyamoya disease associated with subclavian steal syndrome. They could not find any report in literature about the combination of these syndromes. The Doppler, MR, and angiographic findings as well as the clinical importance of subclavian steal and moyamoya syndromes are briefly summarized.
Congenital arteriovenous malformations in the upper extremity, mainly in the hand are rare. In this patient an arteriovenous fistula of the hand caused arterial dilatation of the upper limb, and blunt injury of brachial artery resulted in an extreme large false aneurysm. This situation, which threatened with rupture and peripheral embolisation was treated(More)
The occurrence of carotid arterial injuries is relatively infrequent but have serious outcome. At the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery we have performed surgical interventions in 16 instances (7 penetrating and 9 blunt trauma patients) due to carotid injuries. Preoperatively all these patients developed neurological deficits and in the postoperative(More)
