Popliteal Venous Aneurysm and Pulmonary Embolism Initially Presented with Recurrent Pre-syncope: A Case Report
Popliteal venous aneurysm (PVA) can lead to recurrent pulmonary embolism (PE) and therefore necessitates prompt diagnosis and treatment. PVAs are often asymptomatic, and their most common symptoms are associated with thrombosis. The clinical presentation of PVAs varies from asymptomatic to PE-induced cardiopulmonary arrest, but there are few reports of cases initially presenting with transient impairment of consciousness.

Catchy Title: Just Touch and Plug. Commentary on ‘A Clampless Aorto-Prosthetic End-to-side Anastomotic Device With Large-diameter Aortic Puncher’
In their study, Sasajima et  al. describe an interesting clampless aortoprosthetic end to side anastomotic device (AD) with a large diameter aortic puncher.1 Vascular ADs have been developed for decades, but their clinical use has been scarce. Widespread clinical applications of vascular AD require performances at least equal or superior to manual suture techniques in terms of long term patency. Consequently, for more than 100 years, manual anastomosis has been the gold standard. A variety of ADs have been developed, mainly for coronary bypass surgery, such as rings, staples, clips, stents, adhesives, or welding, but ...

Acute Hemispheric Stroke: Full Remission Following Surgical Thrombectomy
Carotid occlusion because of embolisation or as a distal extension of a thrombus formation in an ulcerated plaque can be the cause of a devastating stroke, caused by sudden occlusion of the internal carotid artery (ICA). Often, invasive treatments are not an option because of the limited time frame. In rare situations of acute stroke onset and admission to therapy within six hours, however, aggressive recanalisation may be considered. This technical note aims to demonstrate surgical transcatheter embolectomy of intra-extra cranial ICA by reducing inflow via placing a clamp on the common carotid artery (CCA) before puncture...

Symptomatic Distal Anastomotic Pseudo-aneurysm After the Bentall Procedure Successfully Treated by Supra-aortic Trunk Debranching and Zone 0 Thoracic Endovascular Aneurysm Repair
Post-operative anastomotic pseudo-aneurysms are rare but potentially lethal complications after the Bentall procedure. When symptomatic or ruptured, expedited repair is warranted, and open surgery may carry significant bleeding risk, particularly when these lesions project anteriorly. As totally endovascular techniques are frequently limited owing to hostile anatomies, complex hybrid interventions are an alternative option in such scenarios. (Source: EJVES Extra)
