Axillobifemoral bypass for total abdominal occlusion secondary to Takayasu’s arteritis: a case report. Please check."/>

ConclusionVascular surgery in TA cases becomes an option when the patient does not improve clinically after administration of medical treatment. Although endovascular management has fewer complications, the rate of restenosis is higher. Patients at risk of restenosis and who have increased perioperative vascular risk can benefit from open surgical procedures. Surgical management should be tailored to the patient’s needs.

Authors: He J, Song P, Kang Q, Zhang X, Hu J, Yang Y, Tang M, Chen D, Hu S, Jin C Abstract China has initiated the special security project for rare diseases from the national strategic level since 2018. Chinese government has formulated China's First List of Rare Diseases (121 diseases included), established Expert Committee of Diagnosis, Treatment and Security of Rare Diseases and China Alliance of Rare Diseases. The government also encouraged all the provinces to include the security plan and strategies of rare diseases into key work and promoted the establishment of rare diseases clinical research center and th...

Lung transplantation is an established therapeutic option for patients with irreversible end-stage pulmonary disease limiting life expectancy and quality of life. Common indications for lung transplantation include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, pulmonary arterial hypertension, and alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency. Complications of lung transplantation can be broadly divided etiologically into surgical, infectious, immunologic, or neoplastic. Moreover, specific complications often occur within a certain time interval following surgery, which can be broadly classified as...

Objectives: Left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy in resistant hypertensive patients is associated with a reduced intramyocardial perfusion. Renal sympathetic denervation (RDN) has been shown to reduce blood pressure (BP) and sympathetic tone. We aimed to prospectively investigate the effect of RDN on functional myocardial parameters and myocardial perfusion reserve (MPR) using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (cMRI) in patients with resistant hypertension. Methods: A total of 15 resistant hypertensive patients (11 male individuals, mean age 62±13 y) were included. Adenosine stress-induced cMRI was perform...

We present a series of four adult sickle-cell patients who developed PRES. The association of hypertension, renal failure, and immunosuppressants in sickle cell patients may play a role in the development of PRES in this patient population. It is unclear if SC patients have a higher frequency of PRES predisposing factors than the general population or if SC is an independent risk factor for PRES. Despite this limitation, the presence of acute neurological status changes in adult SC patients should trigger suspicion for PRES as management and outcome may be altered.

Herein, we present a patient undergoing replacement of the giant pulmonary artery (PA) aneurysm with a donor’s aorta in bilateral lung transplantation for idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (IPAH). A plastic three-dimensional (3D) model of the PA aneurysm created accurately based o...
