Pulsating Varicose Veins: an Early Sign of Right Heart Overload
The interesting paper by Li and colleagues, reporting a rare case of pulsating lower limbs varicose veins, invites to make some patho-physiological considerations.1 This disease, easily detected at Doppler US exploration, interested both the superficial and deep venous systems of the lower limbs, and the inferior vena cava (IVC); it was clearly connected with a severe tricuspid regurgitation. However, we recognize, as a predisposing factor, the right heart overload, secondary to a ventricular septal defect, operated 38 years before, at the adult age of 18.

The Conundrum of Popliteal Vein Repair in Combined Arterial and Venous Injury Revisited
We enthusiastically read the “Analysis of Limb Outcomes by Management of Concomitant Vein Injury in Military Popliteal Artery Trauma” by Jordan L. Guice, et al. recently published in your journal. The comparative analysis of 29 limbs with concomitant popliteal vein injury repair and 27 limbs managed with popliteal vein inju ry ligation recorded secondary amputations as 45% in the repair group and 41% in the ligation group. These rates were shown to not be statistically significant.1 (Source: Annals of Vascular Surgery)

The Acute Hemorrhagic Mediastinum
The interesting paper by Lui et al. reports a case of spontaneous aorto-esophageal fistula, which we consider a typical example of ‘acute hemorrhagic mediastinum’, a syndrome that we identified on the basis of few clinical signs: a severe external hemorrhage, hematemesis or hemoptysis, sometimes accompanied by an acute thoracic pain, or a sudden respiratory insufficiency.1 It differs from other acute mediastinal diseases, i n particular the superior vena cava syndrome, characterized by a venous congestion; the acute mediastinitis, with prevalent infectious signs; and the pneumo-mediastinum, for the absence of p...

High Output Chylous Fistula Post First Rib Resection
Our experience is that high output chyle leak is a difficult post-surgical complication to manage. Our patient experienced lymphatic leak despite identification of the leak and ligation clipping of the culprit vessels intraoperatively. The patient developed high output chyle leak leading to acute hypovolemia, hyponatremia, and hypoalbuminemia. Very tight management of this was needed through dietician involvement and institution of short period of total parenteral nutrition. Maximal non-operative measures including dietary modifications (including NPO with full TPN), octreotide administration and bedrest failed to resolve ...

Recurrent aortic infections due to unrecognized aorto-enteric fistula
We report a case of an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) with unrecognized primary aortoduodenal fistula (ADF), treated by endovascular aortic repair (EVAR). Endograft infection was diagnosed 12 months thereafter. The associated ADF was uncovered during open surgery, which included endograft extraction, in-situ aortic reconstruction with a cryopreserved homograft (CHG) and duodenal repair. The patient was urgently reoperated in early postoperative course, due to CHG rupture and subsequent hemorrhagic shock. (Source: Annals of Vascular Surgery)

Giant hypogastric aneurysm induced by type-II endoleak presenting 4 years after endovascular repair: A case report
Bilateral isolated hypogastric aneurysm (HA) is a rare type of abdominal aneurysm. Endovascular repair has become predominant compared with surgical repair because of its minimal invasiveness. However, type-II endoleak after procedure may lead to continuous enlargement of HA and rupture. Herein, we report a rare case involving a very large HA induced by type-II endoleak after endovascular repair. A 68-year-old male patient underwent endovascular repair of bilateral isolated HAs 4 years ago. Stent grafts were used to block the orifices of bilateral HAs, and main distal outflows were embolized with coils. (Source: Annals of Vascular Surgery)

Endovascular revascularization incorporating infrapopliteal coronary drug-eluting stents improves clinical outcomes in patients with critical limb ischemia and tissue loss
Critical limb ischemia (CLI) involving infrapopliteal arterial atherosclerosis and tissue loss remains a formidable clinical scenario with significant morbidity and mortality. Despite level IA evidence, tibial revascularization with coronary drug-eluting stents (DES) remains a seldom-used technique in the United States due, in part, to lack of a Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved indication and dedicated stent technology for infrapopliteal application. Furthermore, follow-up data beyond 1 year remain scarce and further evidence for improvement in clinical outcomes using this technique is needed. (Source: Annals of Vascular Surgery)

Impact and repercussion of hemorrhagic shock on the aortic measurements during the sizing of stentgrafts
Because of its compliance, the aorta is prone to variations of diameter not only during the cardiac cycle but potentially at the time of a hemorrhagic shock. A better knowledge and a quantification of these variations should allow a better sizing of the stentgrafts and by consequence an improvement in the results of the endovascular treatment of aortic ruptures.
