Staged repair of chronic type A aortic dissection with small true lumen at the descending aorta.

Conclusions: The two-staged procedure for the repair of chronic type A dissection with small true lumen at the descending aorta is adaptable with low prevalence of mortality and complication. PMID: 32944324 [PubMed]

M&A is still a thing during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Advanced stroke imaging firm, RapidAI is acquiring EndoVantage, developer of the Find, Track, and Treat comprehensive cerebral aneurysm management platform. Menlo Park, CA-based RapidAI said this acquisition can help it expand its scope, from ischemic stroke to hemorrhagic stroke and now aneurysm. EndoVantage was started at Mayo Clinic and Arizona State University has developed a powerful award-winning computational platform that provides comprehensive cerebral aneurysm management, automating the entire workflow from initial assessment, growth monitoring, to treatment plan...

​BY JENNIFER TUONG; IVAN KHARCHENKO; JEAN LUC AGARD; &AHMED RAZIUDDIN, MDA 65-year-old man who had HIV well-controlled with highly active antiretroviral therapy, hypertension, sciatica, and restless leg syndrome presented to the emergency department with left leg pain. He also had had chemotherapy and radiation for anal cancer. The patient said the pain had started 45 minutes earlier when he was sitting on the toilet.He described the pain as sore in quality and 10/10 on the pain scale. He reported that it had started in his lower back and radiated to his left leg. He said he had had no trauma or weakness to the regio...

Rationale: Cerebral aneurysm is a common cause of intracranial hemorrhage, stroke, and death. It is treated with vascular surgeries, such as coil embolism and artery clipping. However, surgery itself is a risk factor that may cause rupture of aneurysm, and leads to irreversible brain damage, and even death. Rapid ventricular pacing (RVP) is a procedure that temporarily lowers blood pressure by increasing heart rate and reducing ventricular filling time. RVP has been widely used to reduce blood vessel tension in many cardiovascular surgeries. Patient concerns: A 46-year-old man came to our hospital with intermittent ri...

Authors: Befera N, Griffin AS, Hauck EF Abstract A 48-year-old woman presented with an acute ischemic stroke (National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) 21) six hours after symptom onset. Workup revealed a left cervical internal carotid artery (ICA) occlusive dissection, which was emergently reconstructed with a flow-diverting stent. A routine Duplex scan one hour later suggested reocclusion of the ICA, confirmed by angiography. The true lumen of the ICA could not be accessed and therefore the "false lumen" of the ICA dissection was entered proximally. The true lumen and ultimately the flow-divert...

This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of endovascular repair using detachable Solitaire AB stents for acute ischemic dissection of “S”-shaped carotid arteries. From May 2015 to December 2016, a total of 127 patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) underwent endovascular treatment in our center. Among them, five AISs were due to acute dissection of an “S”-shaped carotid artery. Coexisting carotid embolism was identified in all five patients, who first underwent successful Solitaire AB stent-based retrieval of the embolism. All patients then underwent Solitaire AB stenting to reopen th...

Abstract Vascular injuries represent a significant burden of mortality and disability. Blunt injuries to the neck vessels can present with signs of stroke either immediately or in a delayed fashion. Most injuries are detected with computed tomography angiography and managed with either antiplatelet medications or anticoagulation. In contrast, patients with penetrating injuries to the neck vessels require airway management, hemorrhage control, and damage control resuscitation before surgical repair. The keys to diagnosis and management of peripheral vascular injury include early recognition of the injury; hemorrhag...
