Symptomatic Pancreaticoduodenal Artery Aneurysm in patient with prior aortic surgery and Celiac Trunk obstruction: Case report

Pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysm (PDA) is a rare visceral aneurysm and represents 1.5% of all the visceral arterial aneurysms. A 81-year old man was admitted with acute abdominal pain. He suffered 2 previous episodes of pancreatitis and he underwent abdominal aortic aneurysm repair eleven years before.The CT scan revealed a 92 mm aneurysm of inferior PDA artery with pre-rupture signs associated with the celiac trunk obstruction.The patient underwent a selective catheterization and embolization of superior PDA artery with coils, inferior PDA artery with 12 mm Amplatzer and aneurysm sac embolization by Onyx and coils.The postoperative course was uneventful and the patient was discharged on the 4th postoperative day.Celiac trunk stenosis could be one of the possible aetiology but atherosclerosis and pancreatitis are the two most common risk factors.

To ensure a covalent integration between PP surface and functional UV-curable coatings, 3-(trimethoxysilyl) propyl acrylate (TMSPA) was functionalized on the surface of oxidized PP film. Two distinct UV-curable coatings differing ...

However, its main drawback is rapid catalytic deactivation by heavy hydrocarbons confined inside the cages. Here, we report a facile synthetic strategy for submi...

We report the fabrication of bimetallic NiCo2Se4 and CoNi2Se4 nanostructures on nickel-foam (Ni-foam) substrates via a potentiostatic-deposition method by adjusting the molar ratio of Ni and Co metals. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analyses show that burl-like clusters with characteristic fluffy NiCo2Se4 and flake-like CoNi2Se4 hierarchical structures were deposited on the Ni-foam substrates. When used as battery-type electrodes in supercapacitors, both NiCo2Se4 and CoNi2Se4 electrodes exhibited outstanding capacity and good electrochemical properties. The CoNi2Se4 electrode ...

The aging behaviour of HPT-processed samples was systematically studied using X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis, high resolution high-angle annular dark-field scanning transmission electron microscopy (HAADF-STEM) and hardness testing. We found that the optimal aging ...

We reported the surgical repair of bilateral CDH in a male infant aged 6 weeks. The patient had herniation of the liver on the right side with HPF in association with anomalous drainage of the right pulmonary vein into the hepatic vein and ventricular septal defect. We approached both sides thoracoscopically; however, the right side required a subcostal incision. We separated the liver from the right lower lung lobe laterally using electrocautery, and the defect was closed with a mesh. The medial portion was left intact to avoid injury of the anomalous pulmonary venous drainage. After 2 weeks, the patients had a surgi...

Pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysm (PDA) is a rare visceral aneurysm and represents 1.5% of all the visceral arterial aneurysms. An 81-year-old man was admitted with acute abdominal pain. He suffered 2 previous episodes of pancreatitis and underwent abdominal aortic aneurysm repair 11 years before. The computed tomography scan revealed a 92-mm aneurysm of inferior PDA artery with prerupture signs associated with the celiac trunk obstruction. The patient underwent a selective catheterization and embolization of superior PDA artery with coils, inferior PDA artery with 12-mm Amplatzer, and aneurysm sac embolization by Onyx and coils.

LITFL • Life in the Fast Lane Medical Blog LITFL • Life in the Fast Lane Medical Blog - Emergency medicine and critical care medical education blog Overview We review the original descriptions of 5 eponymous signs (n=6) associated with non-traumatic abdominal ecchymosis. These commonly cited eponyms involving the abdominal wall and flanks (Grey Turner, Cullen and Stabler); scrotum (Bryant) and upper thigh (Fox) may be useful clues directing the examiner to consider potentially serious causes of abdominal pathology. Cullen sign Thomas Stephen Cullen (1869–1953) was a Canadian gynecologist Non-traumat...

A man in his 60s underwent replacement of an artificial blood vessel for abdominal aortic aneurysm. After surgery, low back pain and elevated serum amylase level were noted. Post operative days (POD)5, he developed fever. He was diagnosed with catheter-related bloodstream infection ;antibiotic administration was initiated. POD 7, computed tomography (CT)showed severe acute pancreatitis and he was referred to us. His low back pain disappeared and amylase levels decreased. However, as his fever was prolonged, antibiotics were continuously administered.

Conclusion: Ischemic pancreatitis is a rare condition but should be considered in a patient with upper abdominal pain and elevated amylase in the context of an abdominal aortic aneurysm and generalized atheromatosis.

By Andrew Yocum, MD &Andrew King, MD   A 69-year-old woman with a past medical history of multiple sclerosis, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, remote cerebral vascular accident, and a known abdominal aortic aneurysm was brought to the emergency department by EMS complaining of abdominal pain. Her AA was stable on imaging four months prior to presentation with a measurement of 3.8 cm.   The patient had intermittent generalized abdominal pain over the previous four weeks that resolved without intervention. This episode began almost 24 hours prior to presentation after the patient finished eating. She had a con...
