ABSTRACT

Introducción. La mayoría de las lesiones de carótida cervical en nuestra institución se manejan por vía endovascular. El objetivo de este estudio fue describir los desenlaces del manejo de las lesiones de carótida cervical en un hospital de cuarto nivel en la ciudad de Cali, Colombia. Métodos. Estudio de series de casos, retrospectivo, descriptivo, en pacientes con trauma de carótida (penetrante y cerrado), admitidos en un centro de alta complejidad de la ciudad de Cali, en el periodo comprendido desde enero de 2018 hasta enero de 2020. Resultados. Se evaluaron 20 pacientes con lesión de carótida, de los cuales 90 % tenía trauma penetrante, en su mayoría por proyectil de arma de fuego. La zona más frecuentemente afectada fue la carótida interna (65 %) y el 40 % de los pacientes presentaban síntomas neurológicos al ingreso. Se realizó manejo endovascular en 13 pacientes, con un 75 % de éxito en el manejo endovascular al ingreso. La mortalidad general fue del 20 %, que en su mayoría estuvo relacionada con traumatismo en otros órganos. El 69 % de los pacientes quedaron sin secuelas neurológicas al alta y el 25 % con secuelas mínimas. Discusión. Se muestra una serie de casos con lesión de carótida donde, teniendo en cuenta las variables de mal pronóstico para hacer una selección adecuada de los pacientes candidatos a este tipo de terapia, el resultado del manejo endovascular fue exitoso


Introduction. Most cervical carotid injuries in our institution are managed by endovascular approach. The objective of this study was to describe the outcomes of the endovascular management of cervical carotid lesions in at a I Level Trauma Center in Cali, Colombia. Methods. Retrospective, descriptive case series study in patients with both penetrating and blunt carotid trauma who were admitted to a I Level Trauma Center between January 2018 and January 2020. Results. Twenty patients with carotid injury were evaluated, of which 90% had penetrating trauma, mostly from a firearm projectile. The most frequently affected area was the internal carotid (65%) and 40% of the patients had neurological symptoms on admission. Endovascular management was performed in 13 patients, with a 75% success rate in endovascular management on admission. Overall mortality was 20%, most of which was related to trauma to other organs; 69% of the patients were left without neurological sequelae at discharge and 25% with minimal sequelae.Discussion. We describe a case series of patients with cervical carotid injury, taking into account the variables of poor prognosis to make an adequate selection of patients for endovascular management, the result of endovascular management was successful

ABSTRACT

Resumen Los aneurismas esplénicos verdaderos son dilataciones saculares que involucran todas las capas de la arteria esplénica. Se presentan más frecuentemente en mujeres, en el embarazo y pacientes con hipertensión portal. Son habitualmente asintomáticos y diagnosticados incidentalmente durante el estudio de otra afección abdominal. Hasta un 10% se puede presentar con ruptura, lo que supone un escenario con una alta morbilidad y mortalidad. El tratamiento de los aneurismas esplénicos es aún un tema de controversia y existen variadas modalidades terapéuticas. Presentamos dos casos de pacientes con aneurismas esplénicos: uno de ellos que se manifestó con rotura y el otro por un diagnóstico incidental. Ambos fueron resueltos mediante embolización endovascular con resultados óptimos. Esta modalidad terapéutica poco difundida para el tratamiento de aneurismas esplénicos gigantes o rotos, nos permitió resolver el cuadro de forma segura y efectiva, con mínima morbilidad y mortalidad.


Abstract True splenic aneurysms are saccular dilations of all the layers of the splenic artery, more common in women, pregnancy and portal hypertension. They are usually asymptomatic and diagnosed incidentally during the study of other abdominal diseases. Up to 10% may present with rupture, which implies a high morbidity and mortality. Treatment of splenic aneurysms is still a subject of controversy and there is a great variety of therapeutic modalities. We present two cases of patients with splenic aneurysms: one who presented with rupture and the other one incidentally diagnosed. Both were treated with endovascular embolization achieving optimal results. Although the utility of this therapy has not been assessed for giant or ruptured aneurysms, it allowed us to solve these scenarios in a secure and effective way, with minimum morbidity and mortality.

ABSTRACT

Adulto jovem de 18 anos que evoluiu após traumatismo craniencefálico leve com fístula carotídea direta. Apresentou zumbido e exoftalmia, ambos de característica pulsátil e à esquerda. Foi submetido a estudo com Doppler das carótidas, que mostrou elevadas velocidades do fluxo sanguíneo e índices de resistência reduzidos nas artérias carótidas comum e interna esquerdas, compatíveis com fístula carotídea direta. A angiotomografia computadorizada cerebral confirmou a fístula carotídea. Foi encaminhado para tratamento endovascular por embolização, com sucesso. O Doppler de carótidas pode ter papel importante no diagnóstico das fístulas carotídeas diretas e acompanhamento de pacientes submetidos à terapêutica endovascular.(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.

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

Objective To analyze clinical characteristics and short-term efficacy of endoscopic hemostasis in acute duodenal hemorrhage. Methods A retrospective study was conducted for the patients who received endoscopy in the PUMC Hospital due to upper gastrointestinal bleeding and were confirmed to be on account of duodenal lesions for bleeding from January 2011 to December 2018.Clinical information of patients was collected,including demographics,comorbidities,and medication use.Endoscopic information included the origin of bleeding,the number and location of lesions,Forrest classes and size of ulcers,and endoscopic therapeutic methods.Factors that could be relative to the failure of endoscopic hemostasis or short-term recurrence of hemorrhage in these patients were analyzed. Results Among all the patients with duodenal hemorrhage,79.7%(102/128)were due to ulcers,14.1%(18/128)to tumors,3.9%(5/128)to vascular malformation,and 2.3%(3/128)to diverticulum.Fifty-three(41.4%)patients received endoscopic hemostasis,and six patients(4.7%)received surgery or interventional embolization after the endoscopic test.Among the patients receiving endoscopic hemostasis,5.7%(3/53),66.0%(35/53),and 28.3%(15/53)received injection therapy,mechanical therapy,and dual endoscopic therapy,respectively,and 94.3% of them were cured.However,10(18.9%)of them experienced recurrence of hemorrhage and 3 patients died during hospitalization.Only one patient suffered from perforation after the second endoscopic treatment.Lesions located on the posterior wall of bulb appeared to be a risk factor for the failure of endoscopic hemostasis(OR=31.333,95% CI=2.172-452.072,P=0.021).The lesion diameter≥1 cm was a risk factor of rebleeding after endoscopic therapy(OR=7.000,95% CI=1.381-35.478,P=0.023).Conclusions Peptic ulcers were always blamed and diverticulum could also be a common reason for duodenal hemorrhage,which was different from the etiological constitution of acute upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage.Lesions locating on the posterior wall of the duodenum had a higher potential to fail the endoscopic hemostasis.The lesion diameter≥1 cm was a predictive factor for short-term recurrence.Forrest classes of ulcers at duodenum did not significantly affect the endoscopic therapeutic efficacy or prognosis.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Se presentan los resultados de 105 pacientes con hemoptisis amenazante tratados mediante embolización arterial por cateterismo percutáneo por vía arterial sistémica y/o arterial pulmonar. Se describe la técnica del procedimiento y los hallazgos angiográficos. Se muestra la utilidad de la fibrobroncoscopía y de la radiografía de tórax para identificar la zona sangrante como diagnóstico previo al procedimiento. Entre mayo 2000 y septiembre 2015 se admitieron en el Servicio de Hemodinamia 105 pacientes con diagnóstico de hemoptisis amenazante, 76 masculinos (72.4%); edad media: 41 (±18.65 DS) años. El 93% (98/105) fue tratado con éxito. En el 90% (88/98) se efectuó embolización por arterias bronquiales y/o no bronquiales sistémicas y en el 10% (10/98) por vía arterial pulmonar. Cuando la afección era bilateral la angiografía sola no posibilitó identificar el sitio de sangrado. Al 60% (63/98) se le hizo fibrobroncoscopía flexible y se pudo ubicar el pulmón sangrante en el 84% (56/63). Cuando la afección era unilateral, la radiografía de tórax previa al procedimiento facilitó la ubicación del área de sangrado en el 47%. No se observaron complicaciones graves ni muertes vinculadas al procedimiento. El tratamiento de la hemoptisis masiva por vía percutánea tiene alto porcentaje de éxito primario con muy baja tasa de complicaciones. El tratamiento por vía arterial pulmonar es un abordaje alternativo. La fibrobroncoscopía flexible es un importante complemento en esta entidad.


Abstract We present the results of 105 patients with life-threatening hemoptysis who were treated with the systemic arterial and/or pulmonary artery routes. We also describe the procedure techniques and the angiographic findings. We show the usefulness of the flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy and chest radiography to identify the bleeding zone previous to the procedure. From May 2000 to September 2015, a total of 105 patients were admitted to the Catheterization Laboratory with a diagnosis of life-threatening hemoptysis; 76 were male (72.4%) and mean age was 41 ± 18.65 years. Treatment was successful in 93% (98/105). In 90% (88/98) the approach was via the bronchial arteries and/or non-bronchial systemic arteries, and in 10% (10/98) the approach was via the pulmonary artery. In bilateral affection angiographic images alone could not identify accurately the site of the lung bleeding. Flexible fibrobronchoscopy was performed in 60% (63/98) and located the bleeding area in 84% (56/63). In unilateral affection, chest radiography previous to the procedure located the bleeding area in 47%. No complications or death were related to the procedure. The treatment of life threatening hemoptysis by a percutaneous way has a high percentage of primary success with a very low incidence of complications. Pulmonary arterial route treatment is an alternative approach. Flexible fibrobronchoscopy is an important complement to this entity.

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

El pseudoaneurisma arterial es la dilatación de un vaso, producto de la lesión de la pared. Es generado, principalmente, por traumatismos y, en menor medida, por patologías inflamatorias del endotelio. Se presenta como un hematoma pulsátil y doloroso. Su diagnóstico suele realizarse debido a que, ante una ecografía Doppler, se observa una imagen hipoecoica adyacente a un vaso con flujo en su interior. Su baja prevalencia, asociada a su presentación clínica variable, puede generar confusión con infecciones de piel y partes blandas o trombosis. El manejo puede ser desde la compresión extrínseca hasta la cirugía abierta, y no existen algoritmos terapéuticos en la actualidad. Se describeel caso de un paciente de 13 años con un pseudoaneurisma en una rama muscular de la arteria femoral superficial, secundario a un traumatismo cortante en el que se realizó exitosamente el abordaje endovascular con colocación de microcoils para la exclusión del saco pseudoaneurismático.


Pseudoaneurysm or 'false aneurysm' is defined as an abnormal arterial dilatation produced by an injury to its wall that does not affect the three parietal layers like in 'true' aneurysms. In general, false aneurysms are related to traumatisms and, less frequently, to inflammatory disease of vascular endothelium. Clinically, it shows a pulsatile, painful hematoma in the affected region. The initial diagnosis is usually achieved by Doppler ultrasound showing a hypoechoic image in relation to a blood vessel or its wall. Due to the low prevalence of false aneurysm, it is commonly confused with skin and soft tissue's infections or with thrombosis. There are different options of treatment, from extrinsic compression to open surgery. We describe the case of a 13-year-old patient with traumatic false aneurysm of a muscular branch of femoral artery, successfully managed with endovascular exclusion of the lesion with microcoil

ABSTRACT

Las fístulas arteriovenosas pulmonares son malformaciones congénitas dadas por la comunicación directa anómala entre arterias y venas, con una incidencia mundial de 2-3 : 100 000 habitantes. La presentación es, en general, única, asintomática, y aparecen en forma incidental como hallazgo imagenológico en la adultez, y su tratamiento de elección es la embolización endovascular.Se describe la inusual presentación clínica en una paciente de 10 años, que ingresó por disnea, tos, cianosis central y cefalea. Se encontró hipoxemia persistente, hipocratismo digital, nódulos parahiliares pulmonares, gases arteriales con gradiente alvéolo-arterial aumentado. La tomografía axial computarizada de tórax de alta resolución confirmó la presencia de una malformación arteriovenosa pulmonar en la región parahiliar derecha, la cual no se asociaba con la enfermedad de Rendu-Osler-Weber. La paciente fue tratada con embolización endovascular transcutánea. Tras 1,5 años de seguimiento, no hubo recaídas. Son pocos los casos reportados de estas fístulas en la edad pediátrica


Pulmonary arteriovenous fistulas are congenital malformations due to anomalous direct communication between arteries and veins; the incidence is 2-3 : 100,000 inhabitants. This condition is usually asymptomatic and incidentally appearing in adult imaging findings. Transcutaneous endovascular embolization is the technique of choice for treatment. The unusual presentation in a 10-year-old patient is described; she was presented to the Emergency Department with dyspnea, cough, central cyanosis and headache. The examination revealed persistent hypoxemia and digital clubbing; chest X-ray with images suggestive of parahilar nodules, arterial blood gases with increased alveolar arterial gradient. The high resolution computed tomography of the thorax revealed pulmonary arteriovenous malformation in the right parahilar region not associated with Rendu-Osler-Weber disease. The patient was treated with transcutaneous endovascular embolization, and after a year and a half of follow-up there were no relapses. There are few reported cases of pulmonary arteriovenous fistulas in the pediatric age.

ABSTRACT

Las cirugías de cabeza y cuello presentan un alto riesgo de sangrado que puede significar el uso de transfusiones sanguíneas. Existen casos en las que éstas son rechazadas, como sucede con los Testigos de Jehová. Se expone el caso de una paciente Testigo de Jehová con un tumor rinosinusal con alto riesgo de sangrado que consultó por epistaxis recurrente. Se evidencia un tumor ocluyendo la fosa nasal derecha de aspecto vascular a la rinoscopía y la tomografía computarizada. Múltiples aferencias de la arteria esfenopalatina y etmoidales se observaron en una angiografía cerebral. Previo a la resección, se embolizó la arteria maxilar. Durante la cirugía, se contó con un sistema de recuperación de sangre autóloga, hemodilución e infusión de ácido tranexámico. Se ligó la arteria etmoidal anterior derecha vía externa con apoyo endoscópico y luego se resecó el tumor vía endoscópica. La biopsia reveló un carcinoma sinonasal escamoso. Existen alternativas terapéuticas en pacientes que rechacen el uso de hemoderivados. Destacan medidas preoperatorias como la embolización endovascular, intraoperatorias como el uso de agentes hemostáticos, técnicas quirúrgicas y anestésicas. Es importante analizar todas las opciones disponibles de forma multidisciplinara y junto con el paciente, para determinar la conducta más adecuada a seguir.


Head and neck surgeries have a high risk of bleeding, and therefore could require the use of blood transfusions. There are cases for which blood transfusions are not an acceptable option, as is the case for Jehovah's Witnesses. We present the case of a Jehovah's Witness with a sinonasal tumor with a high risk of bleeding, who presented with recurrent epistaxis. Rhinoscopy and computed tomography revealed a vascular-like tumor occluding the right nasal cavity. Cerebral angiography showed afferents of the sphenopalatine and ethmoidal arteries leading to the tumor. Prior to the resection, the maxillary artery was embolized. During surgery, we relied on an autologous blood recovery system, hemodilution and tranexamic acid. Right anterior ethmoidal artery ligation was performed by an endoscopic assisted external approach. The tumor was resected endoscopically The biopsy revealed a squamous sinonasal carcinoma. There are therapeutic alternatives for patients who cannot receive blood products. There are preoperative measures such as endovascular embolization, intraoperative measures such as the use of hemostatic agents and specific surgical or anesthetic techniques. It's important to analyze all of the available options in a multidisciplinary team approach, and to take into consideration the patient's preferences, in order to determine the best surgical conduct.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective To evaluate usage of renal artery embolization (RAE) for renal injuries and discuss the indications for this treatment. Materials and Methods A retrospective study was performed evaluating the electronic medical records of all patients with renal trauma admitted to two major comprehensive hospitals in Shantou city from January 2006 to December 2015. Results There were 264 and 304 renal traumatic patients admitted to hospital A and B, respectively. LGRT was the reason for presentation in the majority of patients (522, 91.9%). A total of 534 (94.0%) patients were treated conservatively. RAE was performed in 9 patients from 2012 to 2015 at hospital A, including in 6 patients (6/9, 66.7%) with LGRT, and 3 patients (3/9, 33.3%) with HGRT. No patient underwent interventional therapy (RAE) at hospital B during the same period. No significant differences in the operative rate of hospital A were observed between the two time periods (2006-2011 and 2012-2015). The operative rate for LGRT between the two hospitals from 2006 to 2011 and 2012 to 2015 was not significantly different. Hospital A showed a significant decrease in the rate of conservative treatment for patients with LGRT. In the univariate and multivariate analyses, the AAST renal grade both were significantly associated with undergoing RAE. Conclusions LGRT was present in the majority of patients, and most cases of renal trauma could be treated with conservative treatment. RAE was well utilized for the treatment of renal trauma. However, some patients with LGRT were treated with unnecessary interventional therapy.

ABSTRACT

La coartación de aorta en neonatos se puede manifestar como insuficiencia cardíaca según el grado de obstrucción. Hay situaciones que pueden simular una coartación de aorta en los recién nacidos. Limitarse a la imagen típica de muesca aórtica en la ecocardiografía para diagnosticar una coartación de aorta puede inducir a error y demorar el diagnóstico adecuado. Se presenta el caso de un recién nacido con insuficiencia cardíaca con diagnóstico inicial de coartación de aorta y, posteriormente, de malformación arteriovenosa cerebral. Se debe considerar la malformación arteriovenosa en el diagnóstico diferencial de un recién nacido con insuficiencia cardíaca.


Coarctation of the aorta in neonates can manifest as heart failure when there is a certain degree of obstruction. There are some situations that can simulate a coarctation of the aorta in newborns. Diagnosis of coarctation of the aorta based solely on the typical aortic arch image on echocardiography can be misleading and delay an accurate diagnosis. We describe an unusual case of a newborn with heart failure who was initially diagnosed with coarctation of the aorta and then with cerebral arteriovenous malformation. We must consider the cerebral arteriovenous malformation in the differential diagnosis of a newborn with heart failure.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Objetivo: Describir la evolución perioperatoria de pacientes sometidos a nefrectomía con y sin embolización de la arteria renal (EAR) prequirúrgica, en un hospital de alta complejidad de Medellín, Colombia. Materiales y Métodos: Observacional descriptivo retrospectivo; se incluyeron pacientes de 18-90 años con diagnóstico de tumor renal, sometidos a nefrectomía con y sin EAR prequirúrgica. Las variables cualitativas se expresaron por medio de frecuencias y proporciones, y las cuantitativas mediante medidas de tendencia central y dispersión. Resultados: Se incluyeron 71 pacientes con una media de edad de 58,1 (DE: 10,6) años, 41 eran mujeres y el 69% tenía diagnóstico de carcinoma de células claras. La media del volumen de sangrado intraoperatorio fue de 540,8 cc, y 19,7% requirió transfusión. El tiempo quirúrgico promedio fue de 2,6 horas y el 38% presentó alguna complicación, con una mortalidad total del 4,2%. Al observar comparativamente los pacientes con EAR (15 pacientes) versus aquellos sin ella (56 pacientes), se identificó un mayor volumen de sangrado intraoperatorio y la necesidad de transfusión en los primeros. Conclusión: Los pacientes sometidos a EAR presentaron un mayor volumen de sangrado, mayor frecuencia de transfusión y complicaciones postoperatorias, siendo necesario un consenso sobre su real pertinencia terapéutica.


Abstract Aim: To describe the perioperative outcomes of patients undergoing nephrectomy with and without preoperative Renal Artery Embolization (RAE) in a high-complexity hospital in Medellín, Colombia. Materials and Methods: Retrospective, descriptive and observational study; 18-90 years old patients with renal tumor diagnosis, submitted to nephrectomy with and without preoperative RAE were included. Qualitative variables were expressed by measures of frequencies and proportions, and quantitative variables were expressed by measures of central tendency and dispersion. Results: 71 patients with a media age of 58,1 (SD: 10,6) years were included, 41 were women and 69% were diagnosed with clear cell carcinoma. The blood loss volume media was 540.8 cc, and 19.7% required transfusion. The operative time media was 2.6 hours and 38% had any complication, with a total mortality of 4.2%. Comparatively observing patients with RAE (15 patients) versus patients without RAE (56 patients), a higher intraoperative blood loss and transfusion requirements were identified in the first ones. Conclusion: Patients submitted to RAE presented greater volume of bleeding, greater frequency of transfusion and post-operative complications, requiring a consensus on its real therapeutic relevance.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: En el manejo de los aneurismas intracraneales la tendencia ha sido realizar procedimientos endovasculares mínimamente invasivos. Nuevas herramientas en imágenes, como la angiografía por sustracción digital en 3D (ASD 3D), sumadas a la experiencia de los radiólogos neurointervencionistas, han llevado a una mayor definición y precisión en el estudio del aneurisma intracraneal. Objetivo: Describir la utilidad de la técnica de angiografía por sustracción digital tridimensional para el abordaje pre y postembolización de los aneurismas intracraneales. Metodología: Estudio de corte transversal entre enero de 2016 y abril de 2017 en pacientes diagnosticados con aneurisma de arterias cerebrales, en el Hospital Infantil Universitario San José, en Bogotá, Colombia. Resultados: Se incluyeron 32 pacientes, de los cuales 71,8 % (n = 23) fueron mujeres. Entre los factores de riesgo para ruptura del aneurisma, el más frecuente fue edad mayor a 40 años (81,8 %). La localización más usual fue en la arteria cerebral media (ACM) derecha (30,3 %). Todos los casos correspondieron a aneurismas saculares. En el control angiográfico postembolización inmediato se evidenció que 16 casos (48,5 %) presentaron saco residual. Conclusiones: La realización de proyecciones multiplanares con reconstrucción angiográfica 3D brinda información adicional para una mejor caracterización del aneurisma y evaluación de las estructuras anatómicas adyacentes, por lo que es de gran utilidad para planear el procedimiento y para el seguimiento.


Introduction: The trend in management of intracranial aneurysms has shifted during the last decades to minimally invasive endovascular procedures. The usefulness of new imaging tools such as digital subtraction angiography in 3D (3D DSA), added to the experience of neurointerventional radiologists, have led to greater definition and accuracy in the study of intracranial aneurysms. Objective: To describe the usefulness of three-dimensional digital subtraction angiography for pre and post embolization approach of intracranial aneurysms. Methodology: A cross-sectional study between January 2016 and April 2017 in patients diagnosed with arterial cerebral aneurysms at the Hospital Infantil Universitario San José in Bogota, Colombia. Results: 32 patients were included, 71.8% (n = 23) were women. Among the risk factors for aneurysm rupture, the most frequent was age above 40 years (81.8%). The most frequent location was in the Right Middle Cerebral Artery (MCA) (30.3%). All cases corresponded to saccular aneurysms. In the immediate post-embolization angiographic control it was evidence that 16 cases (48.5%) presented residual sac. Conclusions: The realization of multiplanar projections with 3D angiographic reconstruction allows for a better characterization of the aneurysm and evaluation of the adjacent anatomical structures, being very useful for the planning of the procedure and in the follow-up.

ABSTRACT

Los aneurismas de las arterias viscerales son relativamente poco frecuentes. El aneurisma de la arteria esplénica es el más común de este grupo, se presenta en el 60 a 70 % de los pacientes. Presentamos el caso de una paciente de 68 años de edad con factores de riesgo cardiovascular, quien consultó por un cuadro de dolor abdominal agudo, intenso, asociado a sensación de peso, y masa pulsátil al examen físico como dato representativo. Mediante angioTAC abdominal y angiografía de tronco celiaco se diagnosticó una dilatación aneurismática sacular en el segmento proximal de la arteria esplénica, la cual, por su localización y con el objetivo de preservar el bazo, fue tratada mediante cateterización selectiva y embolización del saco del aneurisma, para reducir el riesgo de ruptura y lograr un control de síntomas adecuado. A continuación, se explica brevemente la fisiopatología, diagnóstico y los beneficios de la terapia endovascular respecto a otras técnicas.


Visceral artery aneurysms are relatively rare. The splenic artery aneurysm is the most common in this group, occurring in 60 to 70% of patients. We present the case of a 68 year old patient with cardiovascular risk factors, who consulted for acute, intense abdominal pain associated with sensation of weight, and a pulsatile mass at physical examination as representative data. Diagnosis of an saccular aneurysmal dilation in the proximal segment of the splenic artery was made by abdominal angiography and celiac trunk angiography, which, due to its location and to preserve the distal flow, was treated by selective catheterization and embolization of the aneurysm sac, thus reducing risk of rupture and achieving clinical control of the patient's symptoms. The physiopathology, diagnosis, and benefits of endovascular therapy compared to other techniques are briefly explained below

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Varicose gastrointestinal bleeding is one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic liver disease. Endoscopic treatment is the first therapeutic line for these patients, however, for those whom this therapeutic modality fail, a broad knowledge of alternative treatment options may improve the prognosis. We describe a case of a patient who were successfully embolized from gastroesophageal varices via transsplenic access.


RESUMO O sangramento gastrointestinal varicoso está entre as maiores causas de morbimortalidade nos paciente com doença hepática crônica. O tratamento endoscópico é a primeira linha terapêutica neste pacientes, porém naqueles que apresentam falha nesta modalidade terapêutica, o amplo conhecimento de opções alternativas de tratamento pode melhorar o prognóstico. Descrevemos um caso de paciente submetido à embolização com sucesso de varizes gastresofágicas por acesso transesplênico.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective To evaluate improvement in quality of life, reduction of uterine volume, and the correlation between these two variables after uterine fibroid embolization. Methods Data on quality of life before and after uterine fibroid embolization were collected from 60 patients using the Uterine Fibroid Symptom - Quality of Life questionnaire. In 40 of these patients, uterine volume information on magnetic resonance imaging examinations performed before and after uterine fibroid embolization was collected, and compared using the nonparametric Wilcoxon test for paired data. Correlation between quality of life and uterine volume before and after procedure was measured using Spearman's correlation coefficient. Results There was significant improvement in quality of life after uterine fibroid embolization on Uterine Fibroid Symptom - Quality of Life questionnaire, in both subscales scores and the total score. There was a significant median reduction of -37.4% after uterine fibroid embolization, but no correlations between uterine volume and quality of life scores were found before or after embolization. Conclusion Uterine embolization is an alternative to treat uterine fibroids, resulting in relief of symptoms and better quality of life. Although reduction in uterine volume plays an important role in the evaluation of therapeutic success, it does not necessarily have a definitive correlation with relief of symptoms.


RESUMO Objetivo Avaliar a melhora na qualidade de vida e a redução do volume uterino, além da correlação entre essas duas variáveis, após a embolização de artérias uterinas. Métodos Foram coletados dados de 60 pacientes sobre qualidade de vida antes e depois da embolização de artérias uterinas com a aplicação do questionário Uterine Fibroid Symptom - Quality of Life. Informações sobre o volume uterino em exames de ressonância magnética realizada antes e depois do procedimento foram coletadas em 40 dessas pacientes e comparadas por meio de teste não paramétrico de Wilcoxon para dados pareados. A correlação entre qualidade de vida e volume uterino antes e depois do procedimento foi determinada pelo coeficiente de Spearman. Resultados Houve melhora significativa na qualidade de vida das pacientes após embolização de artérias uterinas nos escores do questionário Uterine Fibroid Symptom - Quality of Life, tanto das subescalas como do total. Houve redução mediana significativa (-37,4%) no volume uterino após embolização de artérias uterinas, embora não tenha sido estabelecida qualquer correlação entre volume uterino e escores de qualidade de vida antes e depois da embolização. Conclusão A embolização de artérias uterinas é alternativa para o tratamento de fibroide uterina, resultando na melhora dos sintomas e da qualidade de vida. Embora a redução do volume uterino seja fator importante na avaliação do sucesso terapêutico, não está necessariamente correlacionada com melhora de sintomas.

ABSTRACT

Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) can speed up the regeneration of future liver remnant (FLR) in short period of time, and offer a chance for surgical resection for patients without sufficient FLR. However, ALPPS still remains controversy due to its high perioperative morbidity and mortality, as well as the uncertain long-term oncological benefits. How to solve these problems is the key to ensure the safety of surgery.This article focus on the indication selection, liver function reserve evaluation and timing to perform the second stage surgery, surgical mode evolution and comparison with portal venous embolization/portal venous ligation+two-stage hepatectomy.
