ABSTRACT

Se describe el caso de un paciente de 70 años que consultó por cefalea súbita, tipo trueno, sin alteración del estado de consciencia, acompañada de dolor torácico de una hora de evolución y de baja intensidad. A su ingreso fue enfocado como cefalea en trueno, que es clasificada, en cuanto a la atención, como bandera roja. La medición de troponina fue negativa y una tomografía de cráneo fue leída como normal. Desde el ingreso presentaba signos vitales normales, cuando iba a ser dado de alta se torna hipotenso (completamente asintomático) y por su síntoma cardinal (cefalea), que se asoció a dolor torácico leve y no anginoso, se solicitó angiotomografía toracoabdominal, con la que se demostró aneurisma disecante de la aorta. Con la presentación de este caso, se busca resaltar la importancia en el servicio de urgencias de la asociación de la cefalea tipo trueno, con condiciones vasculares como la disección aórtica.


We describe the case of a 70-year-old patient, who seeks medical advice due to sudden, thunder headache, without alteration of the state of consciousness, accompanied by chest pain of 1 hour of evolution and of low intensity. Upon his admission, the patient was treated as a thunderclap headache, which is considered a red flag. His troponin was negative, and his head tomography was interpreted as normal. From admission he had normal vital signs, but when he was going to be discharged, he became hypotensive (completely asymptomatic) and due to his cardinal symptom (headache) that was asso-ciated with mild non-anginal chest pain, a thoracoabdominal angioCT was requested, with which dissecting aneurysm of the aorta was evidenced. With the presentation of this case, we seek to highlight the importance of the association of thunder-type headache with possible vascular conditions such as aortic dissection in the emergency department.


Descrevemos o caso de uma paciente de 70 anos que consultou por quadro de cefaleia súbita, tipo trovão, sem alteração do estado de consciência, acompanhada de dor torácica de uma hora de evolução e de baixa intensidade. Na admissão, foi tratado como cefaleia em trovoada, que é classificada, em termos de atenção, como bandeira vermelha. A me-dição da troponina foi negativa e uma tomografia de crânio foi lida como normal. Desde a admissão apresentava sinais vitais normais, quando ia receber alta ficou hipotenso (totalmente assintomático) e devido ao seu sintoma cardinal (cefaleia), que se associou a dores torácicas ligeiras e não anginosas, foi solicitada angiografia toracoabdominal, com cujo aneurisma dissecante da aorta foi demonstrado. Com a apresentação deste caso, o objetivo é destacar a importância no pronto-socorro da associação da cefaleia do tipo trovão com afecções vasculares como a dissecção da aorta.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Purposes: To evaluate the optical coherence tomography angiography findings in patients with Behçet disease with and without ocular involvement. Methods: A total of 40 patients with Behçet disease and 30 healthy controls were enrolled in the study. Retinal vessel density in the superficial capillary plexus and deep capillary plexus, foveal avascular zone area and perimeter, acirculatory index, foveal density, and nonflow area in the superficial retina were automatically measured using the optical coherence tomography angiography software AngioVue and compared between the groups. Results: The mean parafoveal and perifoveal vessel densities in the superficial capillary plexus and deep capillary plexus and foveal density were significantly lower in the eyes with Behçet uveitis compared to the eyes without Behçet uveitis and eyes of the healthy controls. In the eyes with Behçet uveitis, logMAR visual acuity showed a moderate correlation with parafoveal and perifoveal vessel densities and foveal density (r=-0.43, p=0.006; r=-0.62, p<0.001; r=-0.42, p=0.008; respectively). Conclusion: Behçet disease with posterior uveitis was associated with significant perifoveal and parafoveal vascular decrements in the superficial and deep retina.(AU)


RESUMO Objetivo: Avaliar achados de angiografia por tomografia de coerência óptica em pacientes com doença de Behçet com e sem acometimento ocular. Métodos: Foram incluídos 40 pacientes com doença de Behçet e 30 controles saudáveis. A densidade vascular retiniana nos plexos capilares superficial e profundo, a zona avascular foveal, o índice de circularidade, a densidade foveal e a área sem fluxo da retina superficial foram medidos automaticamente, através do software AngioVue para angiografia por tomografia de coerência óptica, e comparados entre os grupos. Resultados: A densidade vascular parafoveal e perifoveal média nos plexos capilares superficial e profundo, bem como a densidade foveal, foram significativamente menores nos olhos com uveíte de Behçet em comparação com os olhos sem uveíte de Behçet e os olhos dos controles saudáveis. Nos olhos com uveíte de Behçet, a acuidade visual logMAR mostrou correlação moderada com a densidade vascular parafoveal e perifoveal e com a densidade foveal (respectivamente, r=-0,43, p=0,006; r=-0,62, p<0,001; e r=-0,42, p = 0,008). Conclusão: A doença de Behçet com uveíte posterior foi associada a decréscimos significativos da vascularização perifoveal e parafoveal na retina superficial e profunda.(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introducción. Las malformaciones arteriovenosas son lesiones relativamente raras e infrecuentes. Se caracterizan por presentar un aumento anormal en el número de vasos sanguíneos como consecuencia de un defecto en el desarrollo vascular. Constituyen un desafío diagnóstico y terapéutico para el médico tratante. Su incidencia es de alrededor el 1.5% de la población general. Dentro de las opciones terapéuticas se incluye la embolización selectiva, la resección quirúrgica o ambas. El objetivo del presente artículo es reportar un caso de una patología poco frecuente y hacer una revisión literaria del tema para arrojar luz sobre su diagnóstico. Reporte de caso. Se presenta el caso de un paciente adulto joven que consulta por presentar una masa en glúteo derecho de 6 años de evolución. Esta es diagnosticada erróneamente como lipoma, por lo que se lleva al paciente a cirugía sin la realización de imágenes diagnósticas previas. En la cirugía, el paciente presenta choque hipovolémico. Posteriormente, se documenta la masa como malformación arteriovenosa profunda. Discusión. Es poco usual la ubicación de dichas malformaciones en los miembros inferiores, como en el paciente del actual caso. El diagnóstico de estas lesiones puede ser clínico, pero requiere del conocimiento o sospecha de esta entidad, ya que pueden ser lesiones clínicamente no visibles, lo que lleva a que pasen inadvertidas o se diagnostiquen de forma errónea. Conclusión. Aunque se trata de una patología poco frecuente, esta puede generar repercusiones clínicas, físicas, psicológicas y estéticas importantes, por lo que es indispensable realizar adecuados métodos por imágenes que permitan establecer su correcto diagnóstico y manejo.

Introduction. Arteriovenous malformations are relative rare and infrequent injuries. Their main characteristic is an abnormal increase in the number of blood vessels as a result of defective vascular development. They represent a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge for the treating physician. Their incidence in the general population is around 1.5%. Some therapeutic options include selective embolization, surgical resection, or both. The purpose of this article is to report a case of an infrequent pathology and to perform a literature review on the topic to shed light on its diagnosis. Case report. The case involves a young adult patient who inquired about the presence of a mass in the right buttock with six years of evolution. It was erroneously diagnosed as a lipoma, as a result of which the patient was taken to surgery without performing preliminary diagnostic images. During surgery, the patient went into hypovolemic shock. Afterwards, the mass was documented as a profound arteriovenous malformation. Discussion. Such malformations are rarely found in the lower limbs, as in this case. These injuries may be clinically diagnosed, but knowledge or suspicion on the existence of this entity is required, because such injuries might not be clinically visible, which implies that they may go unnoticed or be erroneously diagnosed. Conclusion. Even though it is an infrequent pathology, it may have substantial clinical, physical, psychological and aesthetic implications, which implies that it is indispensable to perform adequate imaging-based procedures to enable its adequate diagnosis and management.

Introdução. As malformações arteriovenosas são lesões relativamente raras e infrequentes. São caracterizadas por apresentarem um aumento anormal do número de vasos sanguíneos como consequência de um defeito no desenvolvimento vascular. Constituem um desafio diagnóstico e terapêutico para o médico que trata. Sua incidência gira em torno de 1.5% da população geral. As opções de tratamento incluem embolização seletiva, ressecção cirúrgica ou ambas. O objetivo deste artigo é relatar um caso de patologia pouco frequente e fazer uma revisão bibliográfica sobre o assunto para lançar luz sobre seu diagnóstico. Relato de caso. Apresentamos o caso de um paciente adulto jovem que consultou por apresentar uma massa na nádega direita, de 6 anos de evolução. Isso é diagnosticado erroneamente como um lipoma, então o paciente é levado para cirurgia sem imagens diagnósticas prévias. Na cirurgia, o paciente apresenta um choque hipovolêmico. Posteriormente, a massa é documentada como uma malformação arteriovenosa profunda. Discussão. A localização dessas malformações nos membros inferiores é incomum, como no caso deste paciente. O diagnóstico dessas lesões pode ser clínico, mas requer conhecimento ou suspeita dessa entidade, pois podem ser lesões clinicamente invisíveis, o que as leva a passar despercebidas ou mal diagnosticadas. Conclusão. Embora seja uma patologia pouco frequente, pode gerar importantes repercussões clínicas, físicas, psicológicas e estéticas, pelo que é imprescindível a realização de métodos de imagem adequados para estabelecer seu correto diagnóstico e tratamento.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: la fístula dural arteriovenosa espinal (FDAVE) es una enfermedad vascular rara, de etiología desconocida y frecuentemente subdiagnosticada. El tratamiento puede ser microquirúrgico o endovascular. Material y Método: Análisis retrospectivo de una serie de 8 pacientes consecutivos con FDAVE tratados por microcirugía entre 2010 y 2020. Fueron evaluados parámetros como edad, sexo, cuadro clínico pre y postoperatorio medido con las escalas de Aminoff-Logue y Rankin modificada. Los estudios diagnósticos con RMN (Resonancia Magnética Nuclear), ARM (Angio Resonancia Magnética) y ADM (Angiografía Digital Medular) se utilizaron para determinar nivel lesional y resultados quirúrgicos. Resultados: Fueron operados 8 pacientes (7 masculinos y 1 femenino) con un promedio de edad de 58 años. El tiempo de evolución del cuadro clínico al diagnóstico fue menor a 12 meses salvo un caso de 32 meses. Las FDAVE fueron localizadas en: 6 a nivel dorsal entre D6 y D12, una en L2 y la última en S1 (5 derechas y 3 izquierdas). La arteria de Adamkiewicz se identificó en: 4 casos en L1, 2 en D12, 1 en D10 y un caso en D7 (6 izquierdas y 2 derechas). De los 8 pacientes operados, 3 fueron embolizados previamente. La evolución postoperatoria del cuadro neurológico fue: 2 de 8 permanecieron estables y 6 de 8 mejoraron uno o más puntos en la escala de Rankin modificada; no hubo complicaciones en el postoperatorio. Todos los pacientes mejoraron las imágenes en RMN diferida y la ADM luego de los 6 meses fue negativa. El seguimiento promedio fue de 48 meses con un rango de 11 a 116 meses, ningún paciente presentó recidiva de la FDAVE. Conclusiones: El tratamiento quirúrgico de las FDAVE es un método muy eficaz, de baja morbilidad y menor tasa de recurrencia comparado con el tratamiento endovascular.


Introduction: Spinal dural arteriovenous fistula (SDAVF) is a rare vascular disease, of unknown etiology and frequently underdiagnosed. Treatment can be microsurgical or endovascular. Material and Method: Retrospective analysis of a series of 8 SDAVF patients treated by microsurgery between 2010 and 2020. Parameters including age, sex, pre and postoperative clinical condition were analyzed according to modified Aminoff-Logue and modified Rankin scales. Diagnostic studies such as MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), MRA (Magnetic Resonance Angiogram) and spinal DSA (Digital Subtraction Angiography), were evaluated for lesion level, as were surgical results. Results: Eight patients (7 male and 1 female), average age of 58 years were operated. The interval from symptom onset to diagnosis was less than 12 months in all cases except one (32 months). SDAVF locations were thoracic in 6 cases between T6 and T12, at L2 in one and at S1 in one case (5 on the right and 3 on the left). The Adamkiewicz artery was identified in: 4 cases at L1, 2 at D12, 1 at D10 and in one case at D7 (6 left-sided and 2 right-sided). Three of the 8 patients operated had undergone prior embolization. Postoperative neurological outcomes showed: 2 patients remained stable and 6 had improved one or more points on the modified Rankin scale; no postoperative complications were observed. Follow-up MRI images improved in all cases and spinal DSA was negative at six months. Average follow-up was 48 months (range 11 to 116 months), no patient presented recurrence. Conclusions: Microsurgical treatment of SDAVF proved to be efficient, with low morbidity and lower recurrence rates compared to endovascular results.

ABSTRACT

Resumo Retinopatia externa oculta zonal aguda (AZOOR) foi descrita pela primeira vez por Gass em 1993 como uma síndrome com perda rápida de uma ou mais zonas extensas dos segmentos externos da retina. Paciente masculino, 35 anos, portador de doença de Crohn, queixando-se de dor ocular eventual e nictalopia em olho direito desde infância. Em uso regular de azatioprina e mesalazina. melhor acuidade visual 20/20 AO. À fundoscopia, lesões hiperpigmentadas em arcada temporal inferior de olho direito, em treliça, acompanhando vasculatura local. Após exclusão de diagnósticos diferenciais chegou-se ao diagnóstico de Azoor. Azoor é uma síndrome idiopática caracterizada por um quadro agudo início de fotopsia, escotoma ou ambos e é tipicamente associado a uma perda persistente de função visual que envolve uma ou mais zonas da retina externa. Apesar dos sintomas clássicos de fotopsia, o paciente em questão teve uma apresentação clínica atípica. Descrevemos um caso ocorrido em indivíduo do sexo masculino em região periférica apresentando afinamento coroidiano e com doença autoimune associada. Dessa forma, acreditamos que é necessária maior investigação para verificar a etiologia da alteração coroideana e da associação com a doença específica.


Abstract Acute zonal occult external retinopathy (AZOOR) was first described by Gass in 1993 as a syndrome with rapid loss of one or more large areas of the external retinal segments. Male, 35 years, with Crohn's disease complaining of occasional eye pain and right eye nictalopia since childhood. In regular use of azathioprine and mesalazine. better visual acuity 20/20 OU. At fundoscopy, hyperpigmented lesions in the right temporal arcade of the right eye, in trellis, accompanying local vasculature. After exclusion of differential diagnoses, Azoor's diagnosis was reached. Azoor is an idiopathic syndrome characterized by an acute onset of photopsy, scotoma or both and is typically associated with a persistent loss of visual function involving one or more areas of the external retina. Despite classic photopsy symptoms, the patient in question had an atypical clinical presentation. We describe a case of a peripheral male with choroidal thinning and associated autoimmune disease. Thus, we believe that further investigation is necessary to verify the etiology of choroidal alteration and its association with the specific disease.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Objetivos: Determinar el mejor punto de corte y el grado de conformidad de las escalas de riesgo, Framingham, PROCAM y Reynolds, para el diagnóstico de lesión vascular coronaria arterioesclerótica severa a través de la comparación de las áreas bajo la curva de acuerdo con las curvas operativas del receptor (COR). Métodos: Estudio de corte transversal en adultos que fueron sometidos a arteriografía coronaria. Se aplicaron las escalas Framingham, PROCAM y Reynolds, las dos primeras ajustadas según estudio de calibración colombiano. Luego se realizó la recolección de los datos de manera concurrente en instituciones de referencia en cardiología y hemodinámica en Bogotá. Resultados: De 200 pacientes estudiados, 66% eran mujeres, 37,5% mayores de 70 años, 53,2% con hipertensión, 52,7% en sobrepeso u obesidad, 61,5% presentaron valores altos de Proteína C Reactiva ultrasensible (PCRus) y 50% tenían al menos una lesión coronaria mayor de 70%. Se encontraron los mejores puntos de corte, de acuerdo con cada curva de características operativas del receptor (COR): Framingham ajustado 5,8% (sensibilidad 80%, especificidad 41%). PROCAM ajustado 1,7% (sensibilidad 78%, especificidad 45%) y Reynolds 3,8% (sensibilidad 68%, especificidad 45%). Adicionalmente, se encontró que las tres escalas presentaron áreas bajo la curva (ABC) de 0,59, 0,59 y 0,57, respectivamente.


Abstract Objectives: To determine the best cut-off point and the level of agreement of the Framingham, PROCAM, and Reynolds risk scales, for the diagnosis of a severe atherosclerotic coronary artery lesion by comparing the areas under the receiver operator characteristics (ROC) curves. Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried out on adults that were subjected to coronary angiography. The Framingham, PROCAM, and Reynolds were applied, with the first two adjusted to a Colombian calibration study. Data were collected concurrently in the institutions of reference in Cardiology and haemodynamics in Bogota. Results: Of the 200 patients study, 66% were female, and 37.5% greater than 70 years-old. Hypertension was recorded in 53.2%, and overweight and obesity in 52.7%. Elevated levels of high sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hsCRP) were observed in 61.5% of cases and 50% had at least one major coronary lesion greater than 70%. The best cut-off points according to each of the ROC curves: Adjusted Framingham, 5.8% (sensitivity, 80%, specificity, 41%), Adjusted PROCAM, 1.7% (sensitivity, 78%, specificity, 45%) and Reynolds, 3.8% (sensitivity, 68%, specificity, 45%). Additionally, the three areas under the curve (AUC) were 0.59, 0.59, and 0.57, respectively.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Los mixomas son los tumores cardíacos primarios más comunes. La mayoría tiene curso benigno y pueden tratarse de hallazgos incidentales o ser casi asintomáticos. Los síntomas dependen de su ubicación, en cuyo caso la más frecuente es la aurícula izquierda, de ahí que el riesgo embólico sea elevado. El principal lugar de embolia es el sistema nervioso central; sin embargo, en ocasiones puede afectar los sistemas respiratorio, periférico o coronario(1). Se expone el caso de una paciente con mixoma auricular izquierdo, el cual se manifiesta con accidente cerebral isquémico transitorio, seguido de infarto agudo de miocardio con elevación del segmento ST en la pared ínfero-posterior.


Abstract The myxomas are the most common primary cardiac tumours. The majority of them are benign and can be an incidental finding or be almost asymptomatic. The symptoms depend on their location, with the most common being the left atrium, which carries an increased risk of clots. The main effects of the clots are on the central nervous system, but occasionally they can involve the respiratory, peripheral, or coronary system. The case is presented of a patient with left atrial myxoma, as well as a transient ischaemic stroke and acute myocardial infarction with ST elevation in the inferior-posterior wall.

ABSTRACT

Resumo Fundamento: A embolia pulmonar aguda (EPA) tem desfecho clínico variável. A angiotomografia computadorizada (angio-CT) é considerada o padrão-ouro para o diagnóstico. Objetivo: Avaliar se o volume vascular pulmonar (VVP) quantificado por software automatizado é um preditor de mortalidade após EPA. Métodos: Estudo de coorte retrospectivo no qual a imagem da angio-CT de 61 pacientes com EPA foi reanalisada. O VVP e o volume pulmonar (VP) foram estimados automaticamente pelo software Yacta. Calculamos o VVP ajustado pela razão: VVP(cm3)/VP(litros). Parâmetros prognósticos clássicos da angio-CT (carga embólica; razão do diâmetro do ventrículo direito/ventrículo esquerdo; razão do diâmetro da artéria pulmonar/aorta; desvio do septo interventricular; infarto pulmonar e refluxo de contraste na veia hepática) foram avaliados. A mortalidade em 1 mês foi o desfecho analisado. Consideramos um valor de p <0,05 como estatisticamente significativo. Resultados: Sete mortes (11%) ocorreram entre os 61 pacientes durante 1 mês de seguimento. O VVP ajustado <23cm3/L foi um preditor independente de mortalidade na análise univariada (odds ratio [OR]: 26; intervalo de confiança de 95% [IC95%]: 3-244; p=0,004) e na análise multivariada (OR ajustado: 19 [IC95%: 1,3-270]; p=0,03). Os parâmetros clássicos da angio-CT não foram associados à mortalidade em 1 mês nesta amostra. O VVP ajustado <23cm3/L apresentou sensibilidade de 86%, especificidade de 82%, valor preditivo negativo de 94% e valor preditivo positivo de 64% para identificação dos pacientes que morreram. Conclusão: VVP ajustado <23cm3/L foi um preditor independente de mortalidade após EPA. Esse parâmetro mostrou melhor desempenho prognóstico do que os outros achados clássicos da angio-CT.

Abstract Background: Acute pulmonary embolism (APE) has a variable clinical outcome. Computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) is the gold standard for this diagnosis. Objective: To evaluate if the pulmonary vascular volume (PVV) quantified by automated software is a mortality predictor after APE. Methods: Retrospective cohort study where the CTPA imaging of 61 patients with APE was reanalyzed. Pulmonary vascular volume (PVV) and pulmonary volume (PV) were automatically estimated using the Yacta software. We calculated the adjusted PVV by the ratio: PVV(cm3)/PV(liters). Classical prognostic CTPA parameters (clot load index, right ventricle/left ventricle diameter ratio, pulmonary artery/aorta diameter ratio, ventricular septal bowing, pulmonary infarction and reflux of contrast into the hepatic vein) were assessed. The outcome assessed was one-month mortality. We considered a p-value <0.05 as statistically significant. Results: Seven deaths (11%) occurred at one month among these 61 patients. PVV<23cm3/L was an independent predictor of one-month mortality in the univariate [odds ratio (OR): 26; 95% confidence interval (CI): 3-244; p=0.004] and multivariate analyses [adjusted OR: 19; 95%CI: 1.3-270; p=0.03]. The classical CTPA parameters were not associated with one-month mortality in this sample. The PVV<23cm3/L showed a sensitivity of 86%, a specificity of 82%, a negative predictive value of 94% and a positive predictive value of 64% to identify the patients who died. Conclusion: PVV<23cm3/L was an independent predictor of one-month mortality after APE. This parameter showed better prognostic performance than other classical CTPA findings.

ABSTRACT

Neurofibromatosis is a disease caused by a mutation on chromosome 17, and was described by Friedrich Daniel von Recklinghausen in 1882. It is characterized by the appearance of benign tumors in different organs that can occasionally turn malignant. Four types of neurofibromatosis are described; being type 1 the most frequent, produced by mutations in NF1 gene inhibiting neurofibromin, and in a small percentage of cases by 17q11 microdeletion. In 50% of cases, it is autosomal dominant and the penetrance is 100%. Its prevalence is 1/3000 births and affects both sexes equally. The diagnosis is done by the presence of characteristic signs and can be corroborated through genetic studies. It usually manifests in childhood and involves skin issues, formation of multiple neurofibromas, gliomas of the optic pathway, hamartomas of the iris, bone malformations, arterial hypertension, vascular alterations, intracranial and peripheral nerve sheath tumors, seizures, hydrocephalus, cognitive deficits and learning difficulties. Vascular disease is a rare complication that is usually asymptomatic and can affect the vessels that go from the proximal aorta to small arterioles, including arterial stenosis, aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations. The prognosis is usually good, with neoplasms and vascular diseases being the cause of early mortality. We present the case of a patient with a diagnosis of neurofibromatosis type 1 who presents a rupture of a pseudoaneurysm dependent on the left temporal artery with a fistula with drainage to the superficial facial vein that resulved favorably by endovascular treatment.


La neurofibromatosis es una enfermedad producida por una mutación en el cromosoma 17; fue descrita por Friedrich Daniel von Recklinghausen en 1882. Se caracteriza por la aparición de tumores benignos en distintos órganos que, ocasionalmente, pueden malignizarse. Se describen cuatro tipos de neurofibromatosis; la más frecuente es la de tipo 1, que se produce por mutaciones en el gen NF1, inhibiendo la neurofibromina, y en un pequeño porcentaje de casos por microdeleción 17q11. En el 50% de los casos es autosómica dominante y la penetrancia es del 100%. Su prevalencia es de 1/3000 nacidos vivos y afecta por igual a ambos sexos. El diagnóstico se efectúa por la presencia de signos característicos y puede corroborarse por medio de estudios genéticos. Suele manifestarse en la infancia y comprometer la piel, con formación de múltiples neurofibromas, gliomas de la vía óptica, hamartomas del iris, malformaciones óseas, hipertensión arterial, alteraciones vasculares, tumores intracraneales y de las vainas de nervios periféricos, convulsiones, hidrocefalia, déficit cognitivo y dificultades del aprendizaje. La enfermedad vascular es una complicación rara que suele ser asintomática, puede afectar los vasos que van desde la aorta proximal hasta las arteriolas pequeñas, incluyendo estenosis arteriales, aneurismas y malformaciones arteriovenosas. El pronóstico suele ser bueno; las causas de mortalidad temprana son las neoplasias y las vasculopatías. Presentamos el caso de un paciente con diagnóstico de neurofibromatosis tipo 1 que presentó ruptura de seudoaneurisma dependiente de la arteria temporal izquierda, con fístula con drenaje a la vena facial superficial, que se resolvió favorablemente mediante tratamiento endovascular

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective: To determine the association between body mass index and indication of angioplasty with stent implantation in women over 50 years of age. Material and methods: Retrospective analytical study, cross-sectional. It were evaluated 83 clinical records of women older than 50 years of age who underwent angiography due to coronary artery disease and were hospitalized in Peruvian Naval Medical Center between 2010 and 2017. A Poisson regression analysis was performed to determine the association. Results: The mean ± standard deviation of age was 66.51 ± 8.94 years. 81.93% had two or more comorbidities. The frequency of angioplasties with stent implantation was 58%. Body mass index in range of obesity (45.83%) was more frequent in patients who received the implant. In the adjusted regression model, overweight patients had lower probability (PR 0.83, 95% CI 0.68 - 0.98) to have the indication of implantation as compared to patients with body mass index less than 25 kg/m2. Conclusions: Although obesity paradox relationship between body mass index and angioplasty with stent indication has been demonstrated by the multivariate analysis of this study, it is necessary to evaluate obesity with better markers than body mass index before assuming that obesity is a good prognostic factor for coronary artery disease in our patient.


Resumen Objetivo: Determinar la asociación entre índice de masa corporal e indicación de angioplastia con implantación de stent en mujeres mayores de 50 años. Material y métodos: Estudio analítico retrospectivo y transversal. Se evaluaron 83 historias clínicas de mujeres mayores de 50 años, a quienes se les practicó angiografía debido a cardiopatía coronaria y fueron hospitalizadas en el Centro Médico Naval de Perú entre 2010 y 2017. Se realizó un análisis de regresión de Poisson para determinar la asociación. Resultados: La media ± desviación estándar de la edad fue de 66,51 ± 8,94 años. El 81,93% de los casos tenía dos o más comorbilidades. La frecuencia de angioplastias con implantación de stent fue del 58%. El índice de masa corporal en rango de obesidad (45,83%) fue más frecuente en las pacientes que recibieron el implante. En el modelo de regresión ajustado, las pacientes con sobrepeso tuvieron menor probabilidad (PR 0,83, 95% IC 0,68 - 0,98) de indicación de implantación, en comparación con las pacientes con índice de masa corporal inferior a 25 kg/m2. Conclusiones: Aunque la paradoja de la relación de la obesidad entre índice de masa corporal y angioplastia con indicación de stent ha sido demostrada por el análisis multivariante de este estudio, es necesario evaluar la obesidad con mejores marcadores que el índice de masa corporal, antes de asumir que la obesidad es un buen factor pronóstico de cardiopatía coronaria en las pacientes.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) is an increasing health care problem associated with thromboembolic risk about 5% per year, with high mortality and morbidity when associated to stroke. Oral anticoagulants (OAC) are the treatment of choice for preventing ischemic stroke in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF). However, these drugs are associated with an increased risk of serious complications such an intracranial hemorrhage (ICH). In this context percutaneous closure of the left atrial appendage (LAA) is an effective therapeutic alternative to OACs, with an increasing success rate. Novel devices might allow or facilitate the procedure in some anatomically and technically complicated cases. Two patients with a complex morphology of the LAA, in which the LAmbre (Lifetech Scientific [Shenzhen] Co. Ltd.) device was implanted with good technical and clinical results are presented.

ABSTRACT

Abstract: A 49-year-old woman presented with dyspnea and palpitations, leading to Functional Class III.An echocardiogram showed a heterogeneous mass adhered to the right heart cavities. This was confirmed by NMR. A large right coronary artery was occluded in relation to the tumor, which was hyper vascularized. Resection of the tumor was performed; the right ventricular wall was sutured, and an atrial defect was closed using pericardial tissue. Post operative course was uneventful and she was asymptomatic 4 years after surgery.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: Los aneurismas de aorta abdominal resultan dilataciones arteriales a dicho nivel. Su ruptura constituye uno de los principales riesgos y provoca la muerte del paciente, de ahí la importancia de tratarlos a tiempo. Las opciones actuales de tratamiento son la cirugía abierta y la reparación aneurismática endovascular; esta última representa la primera línea de tratamiento, por constituir una técnica mínimamente invasiva con bajas tasas de morbilidad y mortalidad. Objetivo: Evaluar el tratamiento endovascular del aneurisma de la aorta abdominal con endoprótesis percutáneas en pacientes cubanos. Métodos: Entre enero y abril de 2018 se realizó un estudio prospectivo, descriptivo y cualitativo en 6 pacientes del sexo masculino con aneurisma de aorta abdominal, seleccionados aleatoriamente, que cumplieron los criterios de uso de endoprótesis vasculares y estuvieron de acuerdo con realizar el proceder. Se colocaron 6 dispositivos en una sala de angiografía, y se utilizó en los pacientes anestesia general y guía fluoroscópica. Resultados: De forma satisfactoria fue posible el tratamiento endovascular por vía percutánea de los 6 pacientes seleccionados; solo 1 presentó una complicación menor y fue dado de alta a las 72 horas y el resto fue egresado en menos de 24 horas. Se logró implementar por vez primera en el país el sistema de cierre percutáneo Proglide sin complicaciones. Conclusiones: El tratamiento endovascular por vía percutánea de aneurismas de aorta abdominal con endoprótesis vasculares es una alternativa eficaz para la cirugía convencional en pacientes que cumplen los criterios de uso del dispositivo(AU)


Introduction: Abdominal aortic aneurysms are arterial dilations in that level. Their rupture is one of the main risks and it causes death in patients; that is why the importance of treating them early. Among the current treatment options are open surgery and endovascular aneurismal reparation, being the last one in the first line of treatment since it is a minimal invasive technique with low rates of morbidity and mortality. Objective: To evaluate the endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm with percutaneous endoprosthesis in Cuban patients. Methods: It was conducted from January to April 2018 a retrospective, descriptive and qualitative study in 6 male patients with aneurysm of the abdominal aorta, selected randomly and who met the criteria of vascular endoprosthesis use and agreed with the performance of the procedure. Six devices were placed in an angiography room and it was used general anaesthetic and fluoroscopic guidance. Results: It was possible in a satisfactory way the endovascular treatment by percutaneous way in the six patients selected; just one presented a minor complication and he was discharged after 72 hours; and the rest were discharged in less than 24 hours. It was implemented for the first time in the country without complications the system of percutaneous closure called Proglide. Conclusions: Endovascular treatment by percutaneous way of abdominal aortic aneurysms with vascular endoprosthesis is an efficient alternative for conventional surgery in patients that met the criteria of use of the device(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La enfermedad arterial periférica, específicamente del sector aortoiliaco, es multifactorial, tiene como causa principal la ateroesclerosis obliterante. Las manifestaciones clínicas son variables y la claudicación intermitente es la más frecuente, por lo que es subdiagnosticada. Objetivo: Caracterizar los pacientes con enfermedad estenoclusiva aortoiliaca Métodos: Estudio observacional descriptivo retrospectivo de corte transversal en 86 pacientes ingresados mayores de 18 años de edad con enfermedad estenoclusiva aortoiliaca. Las variables incluidas fueron: edad, sexo, factores de riesgo, clasificación de Fontaine, índice de presiones, patrón por angiografía, conducta, tipos de cirugía vascular, complicaciones, evolución, letalidad quirúrgica global. Fueron atendidos en el hospital Universitario "Calixto García Iñiguez" entre los años 2015 y 2018. Resultados: Se encontró que 72 por ciento de los pacientes era mayor de 60 años y 67,4 por ciento eran hombres. Los factores de riesgo más frecuentes fueron el tabaquismo (73,9 por ciento) y la hipertensión arterial (74,4 por ciento); 34,8 por ciento presentó dolor en reposo y 41,8 por ciento lesiones. El 83,8 por ciento tuvo un índice tobillo brazo menor o igual a 0,4. El 52,4 por ciento clasificó en Darling tipo III. Se revascularizaron 27 casos y 44,2 por ciento tuvo una amputación primaria. Se complicaron 27,6 por ciento y la evolución fue favorable en 54,7 por ciento. La letalidad quirúrgica global fue de 3,03 por ciento. Conclusiones: Se observó que los hombres mayores de 60 años con factores de riesgos eran más propensos a padecer una enfermedad arterial periférica. Se obtuvo una evolución favorable en la mayoría de los casos con un bajo índice de letalidad quirúrgica global(AU)


Introduction: Peripheral arterial disease, specifically in the aortoiliac sector, is multifactorial. It has as main cause the obliterating atheroesclerosis, and the clinical manifestations are changeable and the intermittent claudication is the most frequent, that is why it is underdiagnosed. Objective: To characterize the patients with stenocclusive aortoiliac disease. Methods: Descriptive observational, retrospective and cross-sectional study in 86 patients admitted in hospital, all of them over 18 years old with stenocclusive aortoiliac disease. The variables included were: age, sex, risk factors, Fontaine classification, index of pressures, angiography pattern, behaviour, types of vascular surgery, complications, evolution, and overall surgical lethality. The patients were attended in "Calixto García Iñiguez" University Hospital from 2015 to 2018. Results: It was found that 72.0 percent of the patients were older than 60 years and the 67.4 percent were men. The most frequent risk factors were the smoking habit (73.9 percent) and hypertension (74.4 percent); 34.8 percent presented pain in rest and 41.8 percent presented lesions. The 83.8 percent had an anklebrachial index lower or equal to 0.4. The 52.4 percent classified as Darling type III. There were 27 patients under revascularization and 44.2 percent had a primary amputation. The 27.6 percent of the cases had complications and the evolution was favourable in the 54.7 percent. The overall surgical lethality was of 3.03 percent. Conclusions: It is observed that men over 60 years old with risk factors were proner to suffer from peripheral arterial disease. It was achieved a favourable evolution in most of the cases with a low index of overall surgical lethality(AU)

ABSTRACT

Resumen La inflamación de la aorta (aortitis) es una patología poco frecuente, con etiología infecciosa (pseudoaneurisma micótico, sífilis) y no infecciosa (arteritis, aortitis idiopática, espondilitis anquilosante, entre otras) de difícil diagnóstico clínico y variable pronóstico. Por esa razón, la utilización de diversos métodos por imágenes, tales como la tomografía computada multidetector (TCMD), la tomografía computada por emisión de positrones (PET-TC), la resonancia magnética (RM) y ultrasonido (US) facilitan la identificación, seguimiento y tratamiento de esa entidad. El siguiente trabajo tiene como objetivo realizar una revisión y actualización bibliográfica acerca de la aortitis y sus diversas etiologías, ejemplificando con casos de nuestra institución.


Abstract Aortic inflammation (aortitis) is a rare pathology, with infectious (fungal pseudoaneurysm, syphilis) and noninfectious etiology (arteritis, idiopathic aortitis, ankylosing spondylitis, among others), it has a difficult clinical diagnosis and a variable prognosis. The use of various imaging methods such as multidetector computed tomography (MDCT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) and ultrasound (US) facilitate the identification, monitoring and treatment of this entity. The following paper aims to perform a literature review and update about aortitis and its various etiologies, exemplifying cases of our institution.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La indicación más clara de revascularización en las extremidades inferiores lo constituye la presencia de lesiones isquémicas y el tratamiento de elección, siempre que sea posible, es el endovascular debido a su buena permeabilidad, baja morbilidad y mortalidad. Objetivo: Presentar un caso en el que se utilizó la angioplastia transluminal percutánea del sector fémoro-poplíteo. Presentación del caso: Se presenta un caso con diagnóstico de enfermedad arterial periférica en la extremidad inferior derecha. La angioplastia transluminal percutánea se utilizó para cicatrizar lesiones isquémicas aún en presencia de oclusiones no revascularizables de las arterias infra-poplíteas. El paciente presentaba al examen físico lesión isquémica en el primer dedo y patrón esteno-oclusivo fémoro-poplíteo. Se detectó disminución de los índices de presiones en poplítea y distales. En la arteriografía se apreciaron lesiones esteno-oclusivas en la femoral superficial y oclusión de las arterias infra-poplíteas. Se realizó angioplastia transluminal percutánea de la femoral superficial y el paciente recuperó pulso poplíteo con mejoría hemodinámica. Evolucionó satisfactoriamente y egresó con tratamiento médico. A los cinco meses de operado mantiene su pulso poplíteo presente y la lesión cicatrizada. Conclusión: La angioplastia del sector fémoro-poplíteo es beneficiosa para la cicatrización de la lesión isquémica aún en presencia de oclusiones infra-poplíteas no revascularizables(AU)


Introduction: The clearest indication for revascularization in lower limbs is the presence of ischemic lesions. The treatment of choice, whenever possible, is the endovascular one, due to its good permeability, as well as low morbidity and mortality. Objective: To present a case in which percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of the femoro-popliteal sector. Case presentation: A case is presented with a diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease in the right lower limb. The percutaneous transluminal angioplastywas used to heal ischemic lesions even in the presence of nonrevascularizable occlusions of the infra-popliteal arteries. On physical examination, the patient presented an ischemic lesion on the first finger and a femoro-popliteal steno-occlusive pattern. Decrease in pressure indices was detected in the popliteal and the distal ones. Arteriography showed steno-occlusive lesions in the superficial femoral and occlusion of the infra-popliteal arteries. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of the superficial femoral artery was performed and the patient recovered the popliteal pulse with hemodynamic improvement. The patient evolved satisfactorily and was discharged with medical treatment. Five months after surgery, the patient maintains popliteal pulse and the lesion has cicatrized. Conclusion: Angioplasty of the femoro-popliteal sector prove beneficial for the healing of the ischemic lesion even in the presence of nonrevascularizable infra-popliteal occlusions(AU)

ABSTRACT

Las enfermedades cardiovasculares son la principal causa de muerte en el mundo. Su incidencia y prevalencia aumentan con la edad y con los diferentes factores de riesgo. La mayoría de estos factores tienen una relación estrecha con el estilo de vida; factores como la dislipidemia, el tabaquismo, la hipertensión, la diabetes mellitus, la obesidad y el estrés son cada vez más prevalentes y varían según la población y localización geográfica. Por eso se realiza una revisión de la epidemiología mundial y nacional del síndrome coronario agudo, y de cómo este ha variado a través de los años. Se buscó literatura en inglés y español en diferentes bases de datos, fueron seleccionados 50 artículos que se presentan haciendo énfasis en el impacto epidemiológico del síndrome coronario agudo. Luego de realizar la revisión detallada se concluye que la enfermedad cardiovascular persiste como primera causa mundial de morbimortalidad, con aumento en su frecuencia durante los últimos años. El síndrome coronario agudo es la afección que provoca más muertes entre todos los eventos, con incidencia, edad de presentación, impacto económico y factores de riesgo diferentes de acuerdo con cada región. Los factores de riesgo modificables siguen siendo muy importantes en el desarrollo de enfermedades cardiovasculares.


Cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of mortality all over the world. Their incidence and prevalence increase with age and different risk factors. The majority of factors are closely related to the lifestyle; aspects such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus, obesity, and stress are more prevalent day by day and vary according to the population and its geographical location. The researchers made a revision on international and national epidemiology of the acute coronary syndrome and it has changed over the years. The study included literature published in both English and Spanish retrieved from different databases. For this particular case, 50 articles focused on the epidemiologic impact of the acute coronary syndrome were reviewed. After a detailed revision, it can be said that the cardiovascular disease, which has been increasing during the past years, remains as the first cause of morbidity and mortality at the worldwide level. This syndrome causes more deaths in all events, with different incidence, age in which it takes place, economic impact and risk factors, depending on each region. The modifiable risk factors are still very important in the development of cardiovascular diseases.

A maioria destes fatores têm uma relação estreita com o estilo de vida; fatores como a dislipidemia, o tabaquismo, a hipertensão, a diabetes mellitus, a obesidade e o estresse são cada vez mais prevalentes e variam segundo a população e localização geográfica. Por isso se realiza uma revisão da epidemiologia mundial e nacional da síndrome coronária aguda, e de como este há variado através dos anos. Se buscou literatura em inglês e espanhol em diferentes bases de dados, foram selecionados 50 artigos que se apresentam fazendo ênfase no impacto epidemiológico da síndrome coronária aguda. Logo de realizar a revisão detalhada se conclui que a doença cardiovascular persiste como primeira causa mundial de morbimortalidade, com aumento na sua frequência durante os últimos anos. A síndrome coronária aguda é a afecção que provoca mais mortes entre todos os eventos, com incidência, idade de apresentação, impacto econômico e fatores de risco diferentes de acordo com cada região. Os fatores de risco modificáveis seguem sendo muito importantes no desenvolvimento de doenças cardiovasculares.
