AAA 6. Video Presentation: Concomitant Aortobifemoral Bypass and Superior Mesenteric Artery Endarterectomy

We present the case of a patient with CMI and concomitant aortoiliac occlusive disease (AOID) who was ultimately treated with an aortobifemoral bypass and superior mesenteric artery endarterectomy because of the anatomy of the case and to prevent the need for a second operative time and more intensive care unit stay.

CONCLUSIONS: Cutaneous vasculopathy related to the skin, such as livedo reticularis and ulcers of torpid evolution due to cutaneous vasculopathy are extremely rare. Thus, it is necessary to include skin ulcers as one of the phenotypic manifestations of NF-1. PMID: 31730516 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsOverall, FDG PET has a good diagnostic performance for the detection of active disease in LVV. Future prospective studies, more consistent with the joint procedural recommendations in LVV, are needed to support the use of standardized procedures and reproducible criteria for defining the presence of LVV with FDG PET/CT. Hybrid imaging and novel radiopharmaceuticals, more specific than FDG, are the future of PET in this field.

Publication date: Available online 15 November 2019Source: Autoimmunity ReviewsAuthor(s): Benoit Brilland, Anne-Sophie Garnier, Alain Chevailler, Pascale Jeannin, Jean-François Subra, Jean-François AugustoAbstractAnti-neutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibodies (ANCA)-associated vasculitides (AAVs) are small vessel vasculitides involving predominantly ear-nose-throat, kidneys, lungs and nerves. AAVs are life-threatening diseases, especially in their most severe forms such as necrotizing crescentic glomerulonephritis (GN) and/or intra-alveolar hemorrhage.Unlike immune complex GN or anti-glomerular basement membrane ...

Publication date: March 2020Source: Interdisciplinary Neurosurgery, Volume 19Author(s): Adrian Kelly, Patrick Lekgwara, Aftab YounusAbstractSpinal schwannomas originate from Schwann cells and as a group represent 30% of spinal cord tumors. These lesions are commonly intra-dural extramedullary in location and in fact purely intramedullary schwannomas of the spinal cord represent only 1.1% of spinal schwannomas. Almost all of these occur in patients with Neurofibromatosis. Approximately 50 cases of intramedullary schwannomas not related to neurofibromatosis have been described to date.This case report gives an account of a y...

The objective of this study was to perform a systematic review of the literature on the association ofMycobacterium tuberculosis (MT) infection in patients with TA. The research was conducted using the PUBMED/Medline and LILACS databases including studies published until June 2019 and using the descriptors “takayasu arteritis”, “tuberculosis”, “mycobacterium tuberculosis”, “purified protein derivate” (PPD), “mantoux test”, “quantiferon tb gold”, and “interferon gamma release assay” (IGRA). A total of 113 publications were found, but only 38...
