Symptomatic Pancreaticoduodenal Artery Aneurysm in a 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. 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.

Authors: Schumacher L Abstract Collective cell migration is a key process in developmental biology, facilitating the bulk movement of cells in the morphogenesis of animal tissues. Predictive understanding in this field remains challenging due to the complexity of many interacting cells, their signalling, and microenvironmental factors - all of which can give rise to non-intuitive emergent behaviours. In this chapter we discuss biological examples of collective cell migration from a range of model systems, developmental stages, and spatial scales: border cell migration and haemocyte dispersal in Drosophila, gastrula...

Authors: Banerjee S, Marchetti MC Abstract Collective cell migration plays a central role in tissue development, morphogenesis, wound repair and cancer progression. With the growing realization that physical forces mediate cell motility in development and physiology, a key biological question is how cells integrate molecular activities for force generation on multicellular scales. In this review we discuss recent advances in modeling collective cell migration using quantitative tools and approaches rooted in soft matter physics. We focus on theoretical models of cell aggregates as continuous active media, where the...

Authors: Ferrari A, Giampietro C Abstract Cells apply forces to their surroundings to perform basic biological activities, including division, adhesion, and migration. Similarly, cell populations in epithelial tissues coordinate forces in physiological processes of morphogenesis and repair. These activities are highly regulated to yield the correct development and function of the body. The modification of this order is at the onset of pathological events and malfunctions. Mechanical forces and their translation into biological signals are the focus of an emerging field of research, shaping as a central discipline i...

Authors: Segerman F, Clarkson S, Sjöberg K Abstract Objective: The incidence of autoimmune diseases, especially inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), has increased substantially. Globally, there are vast differences varying from 0.2/105 in some Asian countries to over 80/105 in the Faroe Islands. Environmental factors have been suggested as triggers. The aim was to investigate the incidence and prevalence of IBD in the 33 municipalities in the county Scania in Southern Sweden, an area comprising 100 × 100 km with 1,274,069 inhabitants. Furthermore, we wanted to explore whether compounds ...

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...
