Inferior vena cava rupture caused by perforation route through a collateral vein during endovascular treatment of Budd-Chiari syndrome: Case report

Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is an uncommon disorder defined as an obstruction of the hepatic venous outflow. Percutaneous transluminal balloon angioplasty (PTA) is a less invasive treatment option for BCS patients. However, there are no reports regarding inferior vena cava (IVC) rupture caused by perforation route through a collateral vein during treatment of BCS. Here, we report a male patient with BCS who had a long segmental obstruction of the IVC and its collateral vessels. Here, IVC rupture occurred at the distal end of the obstructed IVC during a percutaneous angioplasty; the rupture was repaired successfully with an endovascular stent graft.

In this study, we sought to investigate the efficacy of the percutaneous transluminal angioplasty method for the treatment of critical limb ischemia (CLI) in patients with Buerger's disease in our modest cohort. METHODS: Patients diagnosed with CLI secondary to Buerger's disease who underwent percutaneous transluminal angioplasty between May 2014 and June 2017 were retrospectively investigated. Patient demographics, presentations, procedural details, responses to percutaneous treatment, complications, limb salvage, wound healing, reinterventions, and early follow-up data were recorded. RESULTS: The cohort included ...

We report the results of transcranial ultrasound monitoring in three patients with intracranial arterial stenosis of the middle cerebral artery treated with the only drug-eluting balloon certificated for intracranial use in highly symptomatic intracranial arterial stenosis, ELUTAX "3" (AR Baltic Medical). We performed transcranial Doppler ultrasounds 24 h, 72 h, 10 days, 15 days and 30 days after the angioplasty, thereby measuring mean flow velocity (MFV) in the maximum stenosis area in patients with symptomatic steno-occlusive disease of the middle cerebral artery treated with ELUTAX "3". Two patients ...

Dysfunction of different components within continuous-flow (CF) left ventricular assist device (LVAD) systems may cause adverse cardiovascular and end-organ sequelae. Outflow graft obstruction is a recognized type of LVAD component dysfunction. Ten patients were admitted and treated for LVAD outflow graft obstruction. Two of these patients subsequently developed recurrent outflow graft obstruction requiring reintervention; however, each reoccurrence was at a different site than the original obstruction. Thus, a total of 12 cases of obstruction were analyzed. The most common reasons for hospital admission were low flow LVAD...

Authors: Watanabe S, Oda J, Nakahara I, Matsumoto S, Suyama Y, Hasebe A, Suzuki T, Tanabe J, Suyama K, Hirose Y Abstract Mechanical thrombectomy using a retrograde approach is performed for tandem occlusion of the internal carotid artery (ICA). In our patient, a guiding catheter was easily passed by the stenosed lesion despite severe stenosis at the ICA origin. Therefore, we aimed to recanalize the occlusion of the terminal ICA without angioplasty for the stenosed lesion. When contrast was injected, a massive extravasation of contrast from the C2 portion of the ICA was observed. It was speculated that the bleeding ...

The first interventional procedure in neonates was described in 1966 by W.J. Rashkind [1]. He reported a trans-catheter balloon atrio-septostomy in a new-born with transposition of the great arteries {S,D,D}. Although the first description of an interventional procedure was in a neonate with a congenital heart disease, the ulterior development of interventional cardiology in this field has been rather limited compared to that in adults with coronary or structural heart diseases. Since the first description of coronary balloon angioplasty by Gruntzig in 1977, millions of PCI have been performed around the world.

One of the main causes of chest pain is a blockage of blood flow down the coronary arteries, the blood vessels that deliver oxygenated blood to our heart muscle to allow it to beat. Depending on how fast the blockage forms, it is labeled as either a stable or unstable blockage. Unstable blockages occur quickly when an atherosclerotic plaque ruptures within the coronary artery and a clot forms on top of it. The clot, along with the plaque, can obstruct blood flow, deprive heart muscle of oxygen, and lead to a heart attack. This is called an acute coronary syndrome, and it frequently requires a minimally invasive procedure c...
