ABSTRACT

RESUMEN Los aneurismas venosos, en especial de la extremidad superior, son malformaciones vasculares de baja frecuencia. Se presentó el manejo de dos pacientes del sexo femenino atendidas en el Servicio de Angiología y Cirugía Vascular del Hospital General Docente "Dr. Agostinho Neto" de la provincia Guantánamo, Cuba, a las que se les diagnosticaron aneurismas en diferentes segmentos del sistema venoso superficial de la extremidad superior, los que se resecaron quirúrgicamente y se les confirmó el diagnóstico mediante biopsia.


ABSTRACT Venous aneurysms, especially the ones located in the upper limbs, are vascular malformations with low incidence in the population. Two cases of venous aneurisms on female patients showed up at the Angiology and Vascular Surgery services at the General Teaching Hospital ¨Dr. Agostinho Neto¨ in Guantanamo, Cuba. Aneurism diagnosis was confirmed through biopsy. They were located in different segments of the superficial venous system of the upper limbs, and were surgically resected.

ABSTRACT

Peripheral artery aneurysms,with low incidence and complex anatomic structure,often involve important branches.This paper introduces a new surgical technique-sleeve shaping on the basis of two cases.The basic data,including characteristics,imaging,operation and follow-up data of the cases,were collected.The data were then combined with the previous literature for explaining in detail that this technique can be used as a supplementary method of reconstruction following resection or endovascular repair.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Objetivo: Reportar el caso de un aneurisma gigante de la arteria esplénica de 9,5 cm de diámetro, en una mujer de 75 años de edad, que consultó por síndrome vertiginoso, con hallazgo incidental al examen físico de masa abdominal pulsátil, confirmado mediante angiotomografía de abdomen y pelvis. Materiales y Método: Registro clínico de una paciente sometida a reparación quirúrgica abierta de una aneurisma gigante de la arteria esplénica. Resultados: Mediante laparotomía, abordaje anterior, se efectúa la ligadura del aneurisma con resección parcial del saco aneurismático más esplenectomía, evolucionando sin complicación a 12 meses de seguimiento. Discusión: Se define como aneurisma de la arteria esplénica a toda dilatación mayor a 1 cm de diámetro, presenta indicación quirúrgica cuando mide más de 2 cm y se denomina gigante a partir de los 5 cm. Conclusión: Los aneurismas de la arteria esplénica son una condición infrecuente, habitualmente asintomática, pero potencialmente mortal especialmente en embarazadas; en la literatura solo existen 78 casos reportados de aneurismas gigantes de la arteria esplénica, se recomienda la resolución quirúrgica expedita.


Aim: To report the case of a giant splenic artery aneurysm of 9.5 cm diameter, in a 75 years old woman, who consulted for vertiginous syndrome, with incidental finding to the physical examination of pulsatile abdominal mass, confirmed by angiotomography of abdomen and pelvis. Materials and Method: Clinical record of a patient undergoing open surgical repair of a giant splenic aneurysm. Results: By laparotomy, anterior approach, the ligation of the aneurysm is performed with partial resection of the aneurysm sac plus splenectomy, evolving without complication at 12 months of follow-up. Discussion: The splenic artery aneurysm, is defined at any dilatation greater than 1 cm in diameter, it is surgically indicated when they measure more than 2 cm and called giant from 5 cm. Conclusion: Splenic artery aneurysm is a uncommon condition, usually asymptomatic, but potentially fatal especially in pregnant women, in the literature there are only 78 reported cases of giant splenic artery aneurysms, expedited surgical resolution is recommended.

ABSTRACT

Los aneurismas de la arteria poplítea son los más frecuentes de todos los que afectan a las arterias periféricas y corresponde a un aumento del diámetro de esta arteria mayor de 1,5 cm. El diagnóstico fue de aneurisma de la arteria poplítea de ambos miembros inferiores, con mayor diámetro en la izquierda. Lo poco frecuente en este caso son las dimensiones que alcanzó la arteria poplítea izquierda. El paciente presentaba dolor en la fosa poplítea izquierda e imposibilidad de extensión de la pierna. Se detectó disminución importante de los índices de presiones dístales de ambos miembros inferiores y en la angiotomografía realizada al paciente se apreciaron dilataciones aneurismáticas trombosadas en ambas regiones poplíteas. Se realizó la aneurismectomía con sustitución protésica desde la arteria femoral superficial al tronco tibio-peroneo en el miembro inferior izquierdo. El paciente egresó con evolución satisfactoria(AU)


The popliteal artery´s aneurysms are the most frequent of all those that affect outlying arteries and it corresponds to an increase bigger than 1,5 cms of the diameter of this artery. A not very frequent case is presented due to the dimensions that the popliteal left artery reached. The case presented a diagnosis of aneurysm of the popliteal artery in both inferior limbs, with bigger diameter in the left which is infrequent. The patient presented pain in the left popliteal area and impossibility of extending the leg. Important decrease of the distal pressures indexes of both inferior limbs was detected, and in the performed angiotomography there was evidence of thrombosed aneurisms in both popliteal regions. The patient was attended in the operating room and an aneurismectomy with prosthesis substitution of femoral superficial artery to tibial- peroneal arterial trunk in left lower limb was carried out. The patient was discharged with satisfactory evolution(AU)

ABSTRACT

The treatment options for aberrant right subclavian artery vary depending on the presence of Kommerell's diverticulum. Because there is a tendency not to report mortalities of these rare cases in the literature, it is hard to reach a conclusion on treatments from the limited data on post-interventional results in these patients. We report our experience with a 67-year old patient with an aberrant right subclavian aneurysm with Kommerell's diverticulum, diagnosed by chance


As opções de tratamento para artéria subclávia direita aberrante variam dependendo da presença de divertículo de Kommerell. Como há uma tendência a não relatar mortalidade nos raros casos descritos na literatura, é difícil chegar a uma conclusão sobre tratamentos tendo em vista os dados limitados sobre resultados pós-intervenção nesses pacientes. Relatamos aqui nossa experiência com um paciente de 67 anos de idade com aneurisma de artéria subclávia aberrante direita com divertículo de Kommerell diagnosticado ao acaso

ABSTRACT

Os aneurismas de artéria mesentérica superior são raros, representando menos de 0,5% de todos os aneurismas intra-abdominais. São causados principalmente por aterosclerose e por êmbolos sépticos decorrentes de endocardite bacteriana. Apesar de incomuns, são considerados graves, devido a possíveis complicações como ruptura com hemorragia e isquemia intestinal. Com consequências potencialmente devastadoras, o diagnóstico e o tratamento em tempo hábil são essenciais para se otimizarem os resultados. Ainda sem um consenso bem definido, os tratamentos propostos envolvem cirurgia convencional, terapia endovascular e conduta expectante com exames periódicos. Este trabalho relata o caso de um homem de 58 anos, assintomático, com achado incidental e incomum de dois aneurismas de artéria mesentérica superior. Perante uma anatomia desfavorável à abordagem endovascular, foi realizado o tratamento cirúrgico aberto, utilizando-se prótese de dácron na reconstrução arterial, com sucesso


Superior mesenteric artery aneurysms are rare, accounting for less than 0.5% of all intra-abdominal aneurysms. They are mainly caused by atherosclerosis and septic emboli resulting from bacterial endocarditis. Although uncommon, these aneurysms are considered dangerous because of possible complications such as rupture with hemorrhage and intestinal ischemia. Since the consequences can be very serious, early diagnosis and treatment are essential to improve outcomes. Although there is no well-defined consensus, recommended treatments include open surgery, endovascular therapy, and watchful waiting with periodic examinations. In this article we report the case of an asymptomatic 58-year-old man with an incidental and unusual finding of two superior mesenteric artery aneurysms. Since anatomy was not favorable for an endovascular approach, open surgery was performed, using a dacron graft to successfully repair the artery

ABSTRACT

O aneurisma verdadeiro da artéria dorsal do pé é um achado médico raro, e suas principais causas e manifestações clinicas são pouco conhecidas. Paciente do sexo feminino, 49 anos de idade, apresentou-se com uma massa pulsátil no dorso do pé direito. O exame clínico e a imagem ultrassonográfica confirmaram o diagnóstico de um aneurisma. O aneurisma foi ressecado após dissecação, exposição e isolamento dos cotos proximal e distal da artéria dorsal do pé. A ligadura simples e a ressecção do aneurisma vêm se mostrando um tratamento seguro quando o arco plantar se mantém pérvio.


A true aneurysm of the dorsal artery of the foot is a rare medical finding and its principal causes and clinical manifestations are not well known. A 49-year-old female patient presented with a pulsatile mass on the dorsal part of her right foot. Clinical and ultrasound examinations confirmed a diagnosis of aneurysm. The aneurysm was resected after dissection, exposure and isolation of the proximal and distal stumps of the dorsalis pedis artery. Simple ligature and resection of the aneurysm is proving to be a safe treatment option in patients with a patent plantar arch.

ABSTRACT

Los aneurismas de arteria carótida interna son una entidad infrecuente pero de gran importancia por sus potenciales complicaciones, como embolización, ruptura, compresión estructuras adyacentes y otras. Su también rara asociación con bucle o lazo de 360º de la arteria carótida interna a dicho nivel, aumenta el riesgo de accidentes cerebrovasculares, y por tanto necesario su tratamiento específico. Se presenta el caso clínico de una paciente de 71 años con bucle sintomático y aneurisma sacular de arteria carótida interna sometidos a tratamiento quirúrgico. Se realizó disección y resección del aneurisma y del bucle carotideo con anastomosis término-terminal de la arteria carótida interna. No hubo complicaciones. Fue dada de alta con antiagregación oral y a los tres años de evolución se mantiene asintomática(AU)


The internal carotid artery aneurysms are an infrequent condition of great importance because of their potential complications such as embolization, rupture, and compression of adjacent structures and others. The rare association of aneurysms with the 360º loop of the internal carotid artery at that level increases the risk of strokes and therefore, their specific treatment is required. This is a 71 years-old female patient who presented with symptomatic loop and secular aneurysm in the internal carotid artery, which had been operated on. Dissection and resection of the carotid aneurysm and loop was made using termino-terminal anastomosis of the internal carotid artery. There were no complications. She was discharged from hospital with an oral anti-aggregate treatment and after three years, she remains asymptomatic(AU)

ABSTRACT

Se presentan 4 casos de aneurismas o pseudoaneurismas de la arteria carótida interna extracraneal. A diferencia de la estenosis carotídea, esta patología es poco frecuente; por lo que las recomendaciones en cuanto al diagnóstico y tratamiento no son uniformes y aun están en discusión, representando así un reto para los médicos de la especialidad. Cada uno de los casos descritos fue tratado de forma particular a las características de anatomía, forma de presentación y riesgos de cada paciente. Los casos fueron de sexo masculino y con un rango etario desde 24 años hasta 77 años de edad. Dos de ellos fueron tratados de forma quirúrgica convencional y dos de forma endovascular. Se presenta las opciones de tratamiento quirúrgico y endovascular en nuestro medio en una enfermedad en la que se tiene experiencia limitada en la mayoría de centros médicos a nivel mundial. (AU)


We present 4 cases of extracranial internal carotid aneurisms or pseudo aneurisms. Opposite to carotid stenosis, this entity is rare, and recommendations for its diagnosis and treatment are not standardized and subject to controversy. Each of the cases presented here were treated differently. All cases were males ranging in age from 24 to 77 years of age; 2 were treated using conventional surgical methods and the remaining two using an endovascular approach. We present here the surgical options for a rare entity with limited worldwide experience. (AU)

ABSTRACT

Aneurismas verdadeiros isolados da artéria femoral superficial (AFS) são eventos raros. Manifestam-se principalmente em homens idosos e frequentemente estão associados a outros aneurismas. Possuem etiologia variada e costumam ser detectados quando apresentam complicações como trombose, embolização distal ou, mais raramente, ruptura. O presente caso refere-se a um paciente cujo aneurisma de AFS se apresentou roto contido e sem associações com outros aneurismas. Foram realizados eco-Doppler colorido arterial, que diagnosticou a ruptura, e angiotomografia, que evidenciou aneurisma sacular de AFS medindo 11,4 × 8,8 cm, com grande trombo mural. Uma arteriografia foi utilizada para programação de revascularização, e detectou-se leito distal via artéria tibial anterior. O paciente foi submetido a revascularização cirúrgica convencional eletiva em artéria femoropoplítea distal com veia safena ipsilateral invertida, com sucesso. Apresentou como complicação pós-operatória infecção de sítio cirúrgico. A pesquisa microbiológica teve resultado negativo, e o estudo anatomopatológico confirmou aneurisma verdadeiro da AFS


Isolated true aneurysms of the superficial femoral artery (SFA) are rare events. They mostly manifest in elderly men and are frequently seen in conjunction with other aneurysms. They have varied etiology and are usually detected when they complicate with thrombosis or distal embolization, or, more rarely, when they rupture. The present case report describes a patient with an aneurysm of the SFA that was ruptured and contained and who had no other aneurysms. Color Doppler ultrasound of the arteries revealed the rupture and angiotomography showed a saccular aneurysm of the SFA measuring 11.4 × 8.8 cm, with a large mural thrombus. Arteriography was used to plan revascularization and showed the distal bed with outflow via the anterior tibial artery. The patient was treated with conventional elective distal femoropopliteal surgical revascularization with the ipsilateral saphenous vein inverted, which was successful. Recovery was complicated by a postoperative surgical site infection. Microbiology tests were negative and the anatomopathological study confirmed a true aneurysm of the SFA

ABSTRACT

O aneurisma arterial induzido por uso de muleta é um evento raro, e a associação com aneurismas venosos não está descrita na literatura. Relatamos o caso de uma paciente que, após o uso prolongado dessa órtese, apresentou quadro de isquemia aguda de membro superior secundária à trombose de um aneurisma da artéria braquial, associado ao achado incidental de aneurismas da veia braquial. Embora a principal causa de oclusão arterial aguda de membro superior seja a embolização de fonte cardíaca, deve-se considerar a possibilidade de embolização arterioarterial por aneurismas provocados pelo uso prolongado de muletas. Os aneurismas venosos também devem ser suspeitados, uma vez que podem ser sede de trombos e fonte de êmbolos pulmonares


Crutch-induced arterial aneurysm is a rare event and there are no descriptions in the literature of cases with concomitant venous aneurysms. We report the case of a patient who, after prolonged crutch use, presented with acute ischemia of the upper limb secondary to brachial artery aneurysm thrombosis, associated with the incidental finding of brachial vein aneurysms. Although the main cause of acute upper limb occlusion is embolization of cardiac origin, consideration should be given to the possibility of arterio-arterial embolization due to an aneurysm induced by prolonged use of crutches. Venous aneurysms should also be suspected since they can be sites of thrombosis, and a source of pulmonary embolism

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Giant splenic artery aneurysm is a rare condition that represents an eminent life threatening for the patient, requiring, therefore, urgent surgical correction. A 61-year-old woman, former smoker, hypertensive, hypercholesterolemic and multipara sought our service because of a large tumor in the mesogastrium, which was an abdominal ultrasound finding. Despite the size of the tumor, the patient was asymptomatic. The angiotomography and the magnetic resonance image of the abdomen were suggestive of giant splenic artery aneurysm with more than 10cm in diameter that was confirmed by an angiography. She underwent surgery, open splenectomy, and partial aneurysmectomy. The approach of the celiac artery, which was ligated, was only possible with medialvisceral rotation because there was no possibility to view it through the anterior access. The histopathological test of aneurysmatic wall revealed atheroma plaques in the intima. The patient progressed without complications and she was discharged cured. In general, giant splenic artery aneurysms are symptomatic, however, as in the case we report, it may be asymptomatic and found in abdominal imaging exam. Although less invasive Interventional methods exist, such as laparoscopy and endovascular techniques, they were considered inappropriate in this case. Conventional open surgery should be the therapy of choice for a giant splenic artery aneurysm.


RESUMO O aneurisma gigante da artéria esplênica constitui condição rara, que representa risco de vida iminente para o paciente, necessitando, consequentemente, de correção cirúrgica urgente. Mulher de 61 anos, ex-fumante, hipertensa, com hipercolesterolêmica e multípara nos procurou por apresentar grande tumor no mesogástrio, achado de ultrassonografia abdominal. Apesar das dimensões do tumor, era assintomática. Angiotomografia e ressonância magnética de abdômen sugeriam tratar-se de aneurisma gigante de artéria esplênica com mais de 10cm de diâmetro, confirmado por angiografia. Foi submetida a tratamento cirúrgico aberto, tendo sido realizadas esplenectomia e aneurismectomia parcial. A abordagem do tronco celíaco, que foi ligado, só foi possível com rotação visceral medial, pois não havia possibilidade de visualizá-lo pela via anterior. O exame anatomopatológico da parede do saco aneurismático revelou placas de ateroma na íntima. A paciente evoluiu sem intercorrências e teve alta hospitalar curada. Aneurismas da artéria esplênica de dimensões avantajadas, em geral, são sintomáticos, porém, como no caso em questão, podem ser assintomáticos e descobertos em exame de imagem do abdômen. Apesar de existirem métodos intervencionistas menos invasivos, como laparoscopia e técnicas endovasculares, eles não foram considerados adequados neste caso. Diante de um aneurisma gigante de artéria esplênica, a conduta terapêutica de eleição é a cirurgia convencional aberta.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Background and objectives: The aneurysm in the pulmonary trunk is a rare disease. Because of its location, a rupture can lead to right ventricular failure and sudden death. Aneurysmorraphy is the most widely used surgical treatment in these cases. The aim of this study is to report a successful balanced general anesthesia for aneurysmorraphy of pulmonary trunk. Case report: Male patient, 28 years, asymptomatic, diagnosed with an aneurysm in the pulmonary trunk. According to the location of the aneurysm and the consequent failure of the pulmonary valve, an aneurysmorraphy was indicated, with implantation of vascular-valvular prosthesis (valved tube). We opted for a balanced general anesthesia, seeking to prevent an increase in systemic and pulmonary vascular resistances, thus avoiding to cause stress on the wall of the aneurysmal vessel. Conclusions: A balanced general anesthesia, in combination with adequate ventilation to prevent elevation in pulmonary vascular pressure, was appropriate for surgical repair of an aneurysm in the pulmonary trunk.


Resumo Justificativa e objetivos: O aneurisma de tronco de artéria pulmonar é uma doença rara. Por sua localização, uma ruptura pode conduzir à falência do ventrículo direito e à morte súbita. A aneurismorrafia é o tratamento cirúrgico mais usado nesses casos. O objetivo foi relatar uma anestesia geral balanceada para aneurismorrafia de tronco de artéria pulmonar feita com sucesso. Relato do caso: Paciente do sexo masculino, 28 anos, assintomático, diagnosticado com aneurisma de tronco de artéria pulmonar. De acordo com a localização do aneurisma e a consequente insuficiência da válvula pulmonar, foi indicada a aneurismorrafia com implante de prótese vascular e valvular (tubo valvado). Optou-se pela anestesia geral balanceada, para impedir um aumento nas resistências vasculares sistêmicas e pulmonar e evitar-se, dessa maneira, um estresse sobre a parede do vaso aneurismático. Conclusões: A anestesia geral balanceada, em associação com uma ventilação adequada para evitar elevação na pressão vascular pulmonar, foi apropriada para correção cirúrgica de um aneurisma em tronco pulmonar.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Splenic artery aneurysms - the most common visceral artery aneurysms - are found most often in multiparous women and in patients with portal hypertension. Indications for treatment of splenic artery aneurysm or pseudoaneurysm include specific symptoms, female gender and childbearing age, presence of portal hypertension, planned liver transplantation, a pseudoaneurysm of any size, and an aneurysm with a diameter of more than 2.5cm. Historically, the treatment of splenic artery aneurysm has been surgical ligation of the splenic artery, ligation of the aneurysm, or aneurysmectomy with or without splenectomy, depending on the aneurysm location. There are other percutaneous interventional techniques. The authors present a case of a splenic artery aneurysm in a 51-year-old woman, detected incidentally.


RESUMO Aneurismas da artéria esplênica - os aneurismas arteriais viscerais mais comuns - são encontrados mais frequentemente em mulheres multíparas e em pacientes com hipertensão portal. As indicações para o seu tratamento incluem sintomas específicos, sexo feminino e idade fértil, presença de hipertensão portal, paciente em fila de transplante hepático, um pseudoaneurisma de qualquer tamanho, e um aneurisma com um diâmetro superior a 2,5cm. Historicamente, o tratamento do aneurisma da artéria esplênica tem sido a ligadura cirúrgica da artéria esplênica, a ligadura do aneurisma ou a aneurismectomia, com ou sem esplenectomia, dependendo do local do aneurisma. Existem outras técnicas intervencionistas percutâneas. Os autores apresentam o caso de um aneurisma de artéria esplênica em uma mulher de 51 anos de idade, diagnosticado incidentalmente.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Resection of the anterior clinoid process results in the creation of the clinoid space, an important surgical step in the exposure and clipping of clinoidal and supraclinoidal internal carotid artery aneurysms. Cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea is an undesired and potentially serious complication. Conservative measures may be unsuccesful, and there is no consensus on the most appropriate surgical treatment. Two patients with persistent transclinoidal CSF rhinorrhea after aneurysm surgery were successfully treated with a combined endoscopic transnasal/transeptal binostril approach using a fat graft and ipsilateral mucosal nasal septal flap. Anatomical considerations and details of the surgical technique employed are discussed, and a management plan is proposed.


RESUMO A ressecção da clinóide anterior resulta na criação do espaço clinoideo, um passo cirúrgico importante na exposição e clipagem de aneurismas dos segmentos clinoideo e supraclinoideo da artéria carótida interna. Fístula liquórica é uma das complicaçoes mais indesejadas e é potencialmente grave. O manejo com medidas conservadoras pode ser bem sucedido, e não há consenso sobre o tratamento cirúrgico mais adequado. Dois pacientes com rinorréia persistente secundária a fistula liquórica transclinoidal após cirurgia de aneurisma foram tratados com sucesso por uma abordagem endoscópica combinada transnasal/transseptal binostril usando um enxerto de gordura e retalho de mucosa naso-septal ipsilateral. Considerações anatômicas e detalhes da técnica cirúrgica empregada são discutidos, e um plano de manejo destes tipo de fistula líquorica é proposto.
