Intra-arterial Infusion of Temporary Embolic Material in a Patient with Plantar Fasciitis: A Case Report

AbstractThis case report concerns a 51-year-old woman with a 6-month history of severe right heel pain diagnosed as plantar fasciitis (PF) treated with intra-arterial infusion of imipenem/cilastatin (IPM/CS) through a 24G indwelling needle directly inserted into the posterior tibial artery (PTA). Angiography of the indwelling needle immediately before the infusion of IPM/CS demonstrated an increased number of abnormal vessels at the calcaneal attachment of theplantar fascia. Two procedures were planned: The first procedure was performed, and the second was performed 1  month after the first. A week after the first treatment, her pain gradually decreased. Three months after the first treatment, she no longer had difficulties with activities of daily living. Intra-arterial infusion of IPM/CS directly through an indwelling needle into the PTA represents a minimally invasive embolic treatment option for PF.

 Written by Pendell MeyersA man in his 50s presented to the ED with chest pain described as pressure, without radiation, acute onset about three hours prior to arrival. He had had stuttering less severe versions of this pain all week that usually went away after a few minutes. He also had diaphoresis and dyspnea. He had extensive family history of CAD with CABG's in the mid 50s for multiple relatives, but he had no personal known history of CAD. It is unclear whether he had pain at the time of triage, but notes describe that his pain had subsided by the time of EM physician evaluation:Triage at approximately 2130...

A 50-something male with a history of hypertension called 911 after sudden onset chest pain in the middle of his chest radiating up to his neck. He reports that earlier in the day he had some chest pain that came on while he was teaching that subsequently resolved with rest.  + Diaphoresis and SOB, no radiation to the shoulders. He had 3 prehospital ECGs recorded:What do you think?The 1st ECG is may appear normal, but is ischemic.  There is a very tiny amount of ST depression in V2, but there is definitely a bit of STD in V3 and V4.  The 2nd ECG has clear STD in V2-V4 and slightly larger inferior T...

We present the case of a 37-year-old male who admitted to our hospital with fever, weakness, limb pain for 6 days and dyspnea for 14 hours .The patient had no immune related diseases.He was rapidly diagnosed with fulminant myocarditis and progressed to severe cardiogenic shock during the early stage.Then he was treated with V-A extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). It is worth mentioning that the patient's peripheral blood was taken for metagenomic Next-Generation Sequencing(mNGS) upon admission and the results did not find any pathogenic bacteria.But there is no further examination(such as coronary angiography and m...

We report a case of a 34-year-old man with a history of smoking who presented to the local emergency department with a 49  min history of chest pain. The first ECG of the patient indicated that ST-segment elevation was noted in the lead V2–V4; 57 min later, a second ECG revealed a typical de Winter syndrome when the patient was transferred to the emergency chest pain centre of our hospital. A percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) was performed approximately 8 h later because the patient initially refused the PCI. Acute coronary artery angiography showed that the proximal left anterior descending cor...

This report describes a “reversed sequence” extra-anatomical supra-aortic debranching procedure as a salvage technique performed to enable HAR. An 83-year-old woman with a history of ascending aortic replacement for type A aortic dissection, mediastinitis complicated by sternal osteomyelitis, and a chest wall reconstructed with a rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap presented with chest pain because of a contained dissecting arch aneurysm rupture. The patient underwent supra-aortic debranching from the bilateral common femoral arteries and thoracic endovascular aortic repair to the ascending aorta under cerebral ...

 Written by Pendell MeyersA man in his early 60s presented with acute chest pain rated 10/10 with associated nausea and vomiting with known history of multivessel CAD. He presented at 2300 with onset of symptoms at 2230. He was awoken from sleep by the symptoms, which were identical to prior MI for which he received a stent years ago. On arrival his heart rate was 43 bpm and blood pressure 91/62. Atropine and IV fluid was given.Here was his triage ECG:What do you think? Baseline below for comparison, but try first without it.His baseline ECG was available on file:The presentation ECG shows diagnostic evidence of poste...

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTRupture of a racemose hemangioma causing dilatation and tortuosity of the bronchial artery can result in massive bleeding and respiratory failure. Bronchial artery embolization (BAE) can treat this life-threatening condition, as we show in two cases. The first case was of an 89-year-old female complaining of sudden-onset chest and back pain. Bronchial artery angiography demonstrated a racemose hemangioma with a 2 cm aneurysm. The second case was of a 50-year-old male with hemoptysis and dyspnea, eventually requiring intubation....
