Abstract Horseshoe kidney (HSK) is a rare anatomic anomaly that poses surgical challenges in the setting of abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. An endovascular approach is safer for patients yet carries technical challenge because of variable renal vasculature. We present the case of a patient with an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm and concomitant HSK who underwent successful repair with a custom fenestrated endograft with preservation of a midaortic renal artery. Complex endovascular aneury...

Abstract Complicated type B aortic dissection (TBAD) is a life-threatening condition requiring surgical intervention. One such complication in the acute or chronic setting is aneurysmal degeneration. The dissected aortic wall is weakened, and the pressures in the false lumen are often high. In the past decade, thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) has become the treatment of choice for TBAD. TEVAR can be complicated by lack of false lumen thrombosis, increasing the risk of death. We presen...

Abstract Symptomatic carotid artery disease caused by hyoid bone compression is rare, although scant reports describe cerebrovascular events due to this mechanical interference leading to entrapment, embolism, dissection, atherosclerotic stenosis, and pseudoaneurysm formation. This report describes a patient presenting with left-sided paresis and paresthesia who was found to have focal right carotid stenosis secondary to impingement of the carotid bulb by an elongated hyoid bone. Whereas previou...

Abstract Late formation of pseudoaneurysm related to stent fracture is rarely described in the literature. We describe a case of spontaneous 8-cm femoral superficial artery pseudoaneurysm rupture that had developed from fracture of a stent implanted 3 years previously. Surgical repair was performed with fractured stent removal and reverse saphenous vein bypass.
Abstract This study presents the technique of percutaneous wire-target access of the superior vena cava (SVC) in patients with bilateral jugular-subclavian vein occlusion requiring a tunneled hemodialysis catheter. A 3-year retrospective review of five patients was performed. The femoral vein is accessed percutaneously and a 5F sheath inserted. This is followed by placement of a pigtail catheter (wire-target) in the SVC with cavography. The SVC is percutaneously cannulated at the level of the pi...

Abstract A 50-year-old woman was referred to the noninvasive vascular laboratory for carotid artery evaluation because of a bruit in the neck. Color Doppler ultrasound examination demonstrated absence of the right common carotid artery and parallel internal and external carotid arteries originating at the brachiocephalic trunk. Computed tomography angiography further described anomalous anatomy, demonstrating a common origin of the innominate artery and left common carotid artery. Knowledge of s...
Abstract A pancreaticoduodenal artery arcade aneurysm (PDAA) is rare and often associated with celiac axis stenosis by the median arcuate ligament. Although rupture risk of the PDAA is not related to its size, treatment guidelines are absent. Here we describe a 59-year-old woman with multiple ruptured PDAAs associated with celiac axis stenosis who was successfully treated with coil embolization. As follow-up computed tomography revealed rapid expansion of residual PDAAs and new gastric artery di...

Abstract Median arcuate ligament syndrome is a rare and poorly understood condition that can have a significant impact on the quality of life of patients. Diagnosis is often difficult and delayed because of the need to exclude other pathologic processes. Treatment strategies traditionally involve open or laparoscopic division of the median arcuate ligament, with or without vascular reconstruction. This report portrays a case of median arcuate ligament syndrome with compression of two visceral ar...

Abstract Nutcracker syndrome is a rare vascular disorder that involves compression of the left renal vein (LRV), most often at the level of the aortomesenteric angle. In some cases, this compression syndrome arises in the setting of unusual vascular anatomic variants. We describe the case of a 43-year-old woman with a duplicated inferior vena cava who was found to have LRV compression on magnetic resonance angiography and venography with intravascular ultrasound. The patient was successfully tre...

Abstract Osteochondroma, the most common tumor of bone, is usually asymptomatic. Vascular complications are an atypical presentation and include true or false aneurysm formation, deep venous thrombosis, and arterial insufficiency. A review of the English literature identified 130 cases of osteochondroma-related vascular complications. We describe the case of a 38-year-old man presenting with left calf pain and swelling who was diagnosed with the rare constellation of a popliteal pseudoaneurysm a...
