Mycotic Aneurysm of Brachial Artery Secondary to Infective Endocarditis
This case describes a brachial artery mycotic aneurysm (BAMA) secondary to infective endocarditis caused by Enterococcus faecalis. BAMAs are rare and potentially limb or life threatening. A literature review revealed 61 cases since 1950, primarily caused by intravenous drug use, with Staphylococcus aureus being the most common causative bacteria. (Source: EJVES Extra)

Surgical Treatment of Post-Carotid Endarterectomy Carotid Pseudoaneurysm
Post-endarterectomy pseudoaneurysms (PEPA) are a rare complication of carotid endarterectomy (CEA), but are associated with high morbidity risk. Therefore, once they are diagnosed, treatment is urgent to prevent possible complications such as rupture, embolisation, thrombosis, or airway and cranial nerve compression. In this video, the surgical procedure is shown in a case of PEPA 10 years after CEA with patch angioplasty, which was successfully managed by surgical excision and interposition of great saphenous vein graft.

Popliteal Access in the Supine Position for Endovenous Management of Deep Vein Thrombosis
The preferred venous access site for percutaneous management of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is the popliteal vein, with the patient in the prone position. Owing to the need for additional venous access, including the jugular or femoral veins, popliteal access in the prone position requires supine repositioning of the patient. A technique for puncturing the popliteal vein in the supine position is proposed, which allows for additional venous access in the same position in patients with DVT. (Source: EJVES Extra)

Pieces of a Puzzle: Anatomy and Parallel Grafts
In this issue of the European Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Dr. Castro-Ferreira and colleagues describe the use of the parallel grafting technique (PGT) in a patient with a complex aneurysm involving the thoracic and juxtarenal aorta, and common iliac arteries.1 Their original operative plan consisted of accessing the renal and hypogastric arteries from a transaxillary approach in order to place stents for bilateral chimney grafts. During the procedure, they were unable to selectively catheterise the left renal artery from this approach because of unfavourable anatomy. (Source: EJVES Extra)

Repeat Rupture of a Giant Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm after EVAR
Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) are known to be associated with high fatal outcomes. Giant AAAs are often defined as having a maximum diameter over 13  cm. Large AAAs over 8 cm have demonstrated a yearly rupture rate of 30–50%, which explains the rarity of giant AAAs. Endovascular repair of ruptured AAAs (rAAAs) is increasingly advocated because of the shorter hospital stay and fewer post-operative complications. Nonetheless, outcomes regardin g mortality and cost-effectiveness show a large variability and long-term outcomes are lacking. (Source: EJVES Extra)

Vascular Surgery Fellowships: Comparison of Two Programmes in Canada and the UK
The last decade witnessed the birth of vascular surgery as a standalone specialty. This was accompanied by the rapid development of endovascular techniques, which revolutionised the way vascular diseases are treated. This change in the practice of vascular surgery has had a great impact at all levels, but perhaps none greater than in the training of future vascular surgeons. Hence, there is an increasing demand for a generation of vascular surgeons who are versatile in performing the breadth of vascular and endovascular procedures. (Source: EJVES Extra)

However, the coil embolisation of a large proper HAA (PHAA) with a very wide neck tends to be extremely troublesome owing to the limited length of the inflow and outflow artery. Moreover, it is difficult because of rapid blood flow in the proper hepatic artery (PHA) and the difficulty in preserving its branch flow. (Source: EJVES Extra)
