ABSTRACT

Introducción: La insuficiencia renal crónica es una enfermedad frecuente que requiere del uso vital de la hemodiálisis, procedimiento común en los pacientes que la padecen, por lo cual resulta necesario disponer de un acceso vascular adecuado. Objetivo: Caracterizar a los pacientes con fístulas arterio-venosas para hemodiálisis en el Hospital Clínico-Quirúrgico "General Freyre de Andrade". Métodos: Se realizó un estudio descriptivo-retrospectivo en 88 pacientes con fístulas arterio-venosas. Se recogieron las siguientes variables: edad, sexo, tipo de acceso vascular, localización, complicaciones inmediatas y tardías, y procedimiento corrector. El período de estudio abarcó desde enero de 2018 hasta enero de 2019. Resultados: Se les realizaron a los pacientes un total de 88 fístulas arterio-venosas. Predominó el sexo masculino (67 por ciento). Prevaleció el grupo de edades de 50 a 59 años (36,4 por ciento). La fístula arterio-venosa humero-cefálica (48,9 por ciento) resultó el procedimiento más realizado. El hematoma, la trombosis y la infección fueron las complicaciones inmediatas con mayor frecuencia (3,4 por ciento). De las complicaciones tardías, predominó la trombosis (3,4 por ciento), mientras que la trombectomía prevaleció como procedimiento corrector (37,5 por ciento). Conclusiones: Como parte del acceso vascular, la fístula humero-cefálica presentó los mejores resultados en cuanto a permeabilidad y durabilidad. Por otra parte, la fístula humero-humeral constituyó una alternativa cuando no se pudieron usar las venas cefálica y basílica a nivel del pliegue del codo(AU)


Introduction: Chronic kidney disease is a frequent condition that demands the vital use of hemodialysis, a common procedure in patients who suffer from it; therefore, it is necessary to have adequate vascular access. Objective: To characterize patients with arteriovenous fistulas for hemodialysis at General Freyre de Andrade Clinical-Surgical Hospital. Methods: A descriptive-retrospective study was carried out in 88 patients with arteriovenous fistulas. The following variables were selected: age, sex, type of vascular access, location, immediate and late complications, and corrective procedure. The study period covered from January 2018 to January 2019. Results: A total of 88 arteriovenous fistulas were approached among all the patients. The male sex predominated (67 percent). The age group 50-59 years (36.4 percent) prevailed. The procedure for creating a humeral cephalic arteriovenous fistula (48.9 percent) was the most performed. Hematoma, thrombosis and infection were the immediate complications with the highest frequency (3.4 percent). Among late complications, thrombosis prevailed (3.4 percent); while thrombectomy prevailed as a corrective procedure (37.5 percent). Conclusions: As part of vascular access, the procedure for creating humeral cephalic fistula presented the best outcome in terms of patency and durability. On the other hand, the procedure for creating the humeral fistula was an alternative when the cephalic and basilic veins could not be used at the level of the elbow crease(AU)

ABSTRACT

Resumo Fundamento: A taxa de falha de enxerto de veia safena um ano após a cirurgia de revascularização do miocárdio varia de 10% a 25%. O objetivo deste estudo foi de investigar se a atorvastatina pode reduzir o acúmulo de células musculares lisas vasculares para inibir a hiperplasia intimal por meio da inibição da via p38 MAPK. Métodos: Quarenta e cinco ratos Sprague-Dawley foram randomizados em três grupos. Trinta ratos foram submetidos à cirurgia de enxerto de veia e randomizados para tratamento com veículo ou atorvastatina; quinze ratos foram submetidos à cirurgia sham. Detectamos a hiperplasia intimal por meio de coloração com hematoxilina-eosina e a expressão de proteínas relacionadas por meio de análise imuno-histoquímica e Western blot. Foram realizadas as comparações por análise de variância de fator único e pelo teste da diferença mínima significativa de Fisher, com p < 0,05 considerado significativo. Resultados: A íntima analisada pela coloração com hematoxilina-eosina era dramaticamente mais espessa no grupo controle que no grupo atorvastatina e no grupo sham (p < 0,01). Os resultados da coloração imuno-histoquímica de α-SMA demonstraram que a porcentagem de células positivas para α-SMA no grupo controle era mais alta que no grupo atorvastatina (p < 0,01). Nós também avaliamos α-SMA, PCNA, p38 MAPK e fosforilação de p38 MAPK após o tratamento com estatina por meio de análise de Western blot e os resultados indicaram que a atorvastatina não levou à redução de p38 MAPK (p < 0,05); no entanto, resultou na inibição da fosforilação de p38 MAPK (p < 0,01) e reduziu significativamente os níveis de α-SMA e PCNA, em comparação com o grupo controle (p < 0,01). Conclusão: Nós demonstramos que a atorvastatina pode inibir o acúmulo de células musculares lisas vasculares por meio da inibição da via p38 MAPK e é capaz de inibir a hiperplasia intimal em modelos de enxerto de veia em ratos.


Abstract Background: The rate of saphenous vein graft failure one year after coronary artery bypass grafting ranges from 10% to 25%. The aim of this study was to explore whether atorvastatin can reduce accumulation of vascular smooth muscle cells to inhibit intimal hyperplasia via p38 MAPK pathway inhibition. Methods: Forty-five Sprague-Dawley rats were randomized to three groups. Thirty rats received a vein graft operation, and they were randomized to be treated with vehicle or atorvastatin; fifteen rats received a sham operation. We detected intimal hyperplasia by hematoxylin-eosin staining and related protein expression by immunohistochemical and Western blot analysis. Comparisons were analyzed by single-factor analysis of variance and Fisher's least significant difference test, with p < 0.05 considered significant. Results: The intima analyzed by hematoxylin-eosin staining was dramatically thicker in the control group than in the atorvastatin group and sham group (p < 0.01). The outcomes of immunohistochemical staining of α-SMA demonstrated that the percentage of α-SMA-positive cells in the control group was higher than in the atorvastatin group (p < 0.01). We also evaluated α-SMA, PCNA, p38 MAPK, and phosphorylation of p38 MAPK after statin treatment by Western blot analysis, and the results indicated that atorvastatin did not lead to p38 MAPK reduction (p < 0.05); it did, however, result in inhibition of p38 MAPK phosphorylation (p < 0.01), and it significantly reduced α-SMA and PCNA levels, in comparison with the control group (p < 0.01). Conclusion: We have demonstrated that atorvastatin can inhibit accumulation of vascular smooth muscle cells by inhibiting the p38 MAPK pathway, and it is capable of inhibiting intimal hyperplasia in a rat vein graft model.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN: Dentro de las disfunciones de los angioaccesos, la estenosis del arco de la vena cefálica (AVC) juega un papel significativo. Existen características anatómicas del AVC que explican, en parte, este fenómeno. Todo esto obliga a un conocimiento profundo del AVC y sus principales variantes. Se disecaron 43 (n=43) axilas de cadáveres adultos fijados en solución en base a formol. Se registró: longitud del AVC (LAC), angulación del AVC respecto a la vena cefálica (AAC), tipo de terminación (simple o múltiple), presencia de afluentes y su número. LAC promedio 31,6 mm (rango 17-46 mm); AAC promedio 128,95° (rango 65-165°). En cuanto al tipo de terminación 41 (95,3 %) fueron simples, mientras que 2 casos (4,7 %) fueron de forma múltiple. Respecto a los afluentes, se encontraron en 42 de los casos (90,5 %). Se encontraron válvulas en 27 (62,8 %) de los casos. La longitud promedio del AVC fue de 31,6 mm, se dispuso en la mayoría de los casos en ángulo obtuso, presentando en la mayoría de los casos terminación de tipo simple. Además, en el 90,5 % se encontró afluentes que se agotaban en el AVC y en más de la mitad de los casos se encontraron válvulas. Se discuten las implicancias de estos hallazgos en la génesis de la disfunción de angioaccesos.


SUMMARY: Within the angio access dysfunctions, the stenosis of the cephalic vein arch (AC) has a significant role. There are anatomical characteristics of AVC that partially explain this phenomenon. This requires a deep understanding of AVC and its main variants. 43 axillary regions of formalin-fixed adult cadavers were dissected. For this study, the following were registered: length of the AVC (LAC), angulation of the AVC with respect to the cephalic vein (AAC), type of termination (single or multiple), presence and number of tributaries. LAC average 31.6 mm (range 17-46 mm); AAC average 128,95° (range 65-165°). Regarding the type of termination, 41 (95.3 %) were simple, while 2 cases (4.7 %) were multiple. Tributaries were found in 42 of the cases (90.5 %). Valves were found in 27 (62.8 %) of the cases. The average length of the AVC was 31.6mm. Most cases presented an obtuse angle, and simple termination. In addition, in 90.5 % tributaries were found and in more than half of the cases valves were found. Implications of these findings in the genesis of angioaccess dysfunction are discussed.

ABSTRACT

El estudio de las venas tiroideas no ha recibido una investigación tan exhaustiva como lo tuvieron las arterias tiroideas y los nervios laríngeos en relación a la cirugía tiroidea.De los tres pedículos venosos de la glándula tiroides, el medio, de lejos es el menos estudiado. La vena tiroidea media es inconstante y es el primer elemento vascular de la glándula tiroides que debe ser seccionado antes de luxar el lóbulo hacia medial para evaluar sus relaciones posteriores. Su lesión puede provocar sangrado intraoperatorio dificultando secundariamente la identificación del nervio laríngeo inferior y las glándulas paratiroides, próximas a la misma. Se realizó un estudio descriptivo de corte transversal evaluando la pesencia, número, simetría y asociación de la vena tiroidea media con variables tales como edad y sexo del paciente, así como la hiperfuncionalidad de la glándula tiroides y la presencia del tubérculo de Zuckerkandl en 100 tiroidectomías totales llevadas a cabo en el Instituto Nacional del Cáncer y en el Servicio de Otorrinolaringología del Hospital Central del Instituto de Previsión Social del Paraguay. La prevalencia global de vena tiroidea media fue del 74 %. En el lóbulo derecho, la vena se presentó en el 60 %, mientras que en el lóbulo izquierdo en el 53 %. En el 38 % se encontró la vena en ambos lóbulos. En 4 pacientes se localizaron venas tiroideas medias dobles, en una de ellas fue bilateral. El mayor porcentaje de las venas tiroideas medias se originó en el tercio medio del lóbulo, el 72 % en el lado derecho y el 70% en el izquierdo. No se encontró asociación entre la presencia de la vena tiroidea media y la edad, sexo, estado de hiperfunción glandular, así como tampoco con la presencia del tubérculo de Zuckerkandl.


The study of the thyroid veins has not received an investigation as extensive as the thyroid arteries and laryngeal nerves did in relation to thyroid surgery. Of the three veins pedicles of the gland the middle is far the least studied. This vein is inconstant and is the first vascular element of the gland that must be sectioned before the medial lobe is dislocated to evaluate ist posterior relationships. His injury can cause intraoperative bleeding, making it difficult to identify the inferior laryngeal nerve and the parathyroid glands, proximal to it. A descriptive crossseccional study was carried aot evaluating the presence, number, symmetricity and association of the middle thyroid vein with variables such as age and sex of the patient, as well as the hyperfunctionality of the gland and the presence of the Zuckerkandl tubercle in 100 total thyroidectomies undergoing at the National Cancer Institute and the ENT Service of the Social Security Institute´s Central Hospital. The overall prevalence of the middle thyroid vein was 74%. In the right lobe the vein appeared in 60% while in the left lobe in 53 %. Double middle thyroid vein was found in 4 patients, in one of them it was bilateral. The highest percentage of the middle thyroid veins originated in the middle third of the lobe, 72 % on the right and 70% on the left side. No association was found between the presence of the vain and age and sex, the state of glandular hyperfunstion, as well as the presence of Zuckerkandl tubercle.

ABSTRACT

Actualmente, en la jerga médica se oyen algunos usos inadecuados de este término, como EPOC sobre infectada, sobreinfección de úlcera venosa, venas varicosas sobre infectadas, enfermedades que en principio no son de origen infeccioso, aunque puedan llegar a complicarse con una infección secundaria. Conocer la etimología ayuda a aclarar la situación.

ABSTRACT

Se estudió el arco venoso dorsal de la mano (AVD) en una muestra de la población de Bucaramanga en 54 mujeres y 50 hombres. Las variables estudiadas en el AVD fueron: número de venas que lo forman, número de venas que recorren su interior, presencia de una vena que forme su parte lateral y medial, conformación cerrada o discontinua del AVD, si la vena metacarpiana del primer dedo se unía al AVD y contribuía a la formación de la vena cefálica, si la vena metacarpiana del quinto dedo se unía al AVD y contribuía a la formación de la vena basílica. También se revisó la concordancia entre la vena que escogían dos observadores independientes, como la más adecuada para venopunción. La comparación con los textos clásicos de anatomía evidenció concordancia en que cerca de la cabeza de los metacarpianos se forman venas metacarpianas dorsales, pero, no siempre estas venas se unen de forma completa para formar un "arco venoso cerrado" como lo describen los esquemas de la mayoría de los autores. Sólo un 41,8 % fueron AVD cerrados. Las venas metacarpianas del primer y del quinto dedo se unieron al AVD en un 44,23 % y un 89,42 % respectivamente. Este dato, sumado al hecho de que en el primer y quinto dedos pueden existir más de una vena que drene su sangre, las cuales no siempre se unen al AVD, ayudan a explicar la razón de porqué en otros estudios se describe ausencia de venas cefálica o basílica o presencia de varias venas cefálicas que permiten la formación de ciertos patrones de la fosa cubital. Se encontró concordancia del 78,85 % en cuanto a la vena escogida para posible venopunción y en el análisis bivariado, hubo asociación estadística de esta concordancia al cruzarla con el número de venas que recorren el interior del AVD.


The dorsal venous arch of the hand (AVD) was studied in a sample of the Bucaramanga population of 54 women and 50 men. The variables studied in the AVD were: Number of veins that form it, number of veins that run through its interior, presence of a vein that forms its lateral and medial part, closed or discontinuous conformation of the AVD, if the metacarpal vein of the first finger joined the AVD and contributed to the formation of the cephalic vein, if the metacarpal vein of the fifth finger joined the ADL and contributed to the formation of the basilic vein. The concordance between the vein chosen by two independent observers was also reviewed, as the most suitable for venipuncture. The comparison with the classic anatomy texts showed concordance in which dorsal metacarpal veins are formed near the metacarpal head, but these veins do not always unite completely to form a "closed venous arch" as described in metacarpal diagrams by most authors. Only 41.8 % were closed AVD. The metacarpal veins of the first and fifth toes joined the AVD in 44.23 % and 89.42 % respectively. This fact, in addition that in the first and fifth fingers, there may be more than one vein draining the blood, which do not always bind to the AVD, helps explain the reason other studies describe absence of cephalic veins, basilica or presence of several cephalic veins that allow the formation of certain patterns of the cubital fossa. There was 78.85 % agreement regarding the vein chosen for possible venipuncture and in the bivariate analysis, there was a statistical association of this concordance when crossing it with the number of veins that run through the interior of the AVD.

ABSTRACT

Introdução: As varizes são veias que após submetidas a períodos de pressão aumentada no sistema venoso periférico se tornam dilatadas, tortuosas e alongadas. Pacientes acometidos irão referir dor no membro, além de sinais de insuficiência venosa. O exame de imagem comumente utilizado é o ultrassom com Doppler, no entanto, na presença de anomalias de drenagem venosa intraóssea, deve-se preferir a ressonância magnética. Objetivo: Relatar um caso e revisar a literatura acerca desta lesão incomum. Materiais e Métodos: Revisão do prontuário do paciente no Hospital América, registro fotográfico do método diagnóstico e revisão da literatura. Resultados: Homem de 46 anos com dor e queimação constantes, além de edema na perna e no pé esquerdos há dois meses Ao exame físico apresenta edema da perna, tornozelo e pé esquerdos, com discreto aumento de temperatura ao toque, sem alteração da coloração da pele. A ressonância magnética demonstra varicosidades das veias tibiais posteriores com comunicação através de veia perfurante com varicosidade da veia intraóssea posterior da tíbia ­ variz intraóssea. Conclusão: Este relato demonstra a dificuldade de diagnosticar a variz intra-óssea que, além de ser uma lesão rara, é diagnosticada apenas pela ressonância magnética.


Introduction: Varicose veins are veins that after being submitted to high pressure on the peripheral venous system become dilated, tortuous and elongated. Patients affected will report pain and venous insufficiency signs in the area. The imaging exam commonly used is the Doppler ultrasound, however, when in front of an intraosseous venous drainage anomaly ­ intraosseous varix, magnetic resonance should be preferred. Objective: Report a case and review the literature about this uncommon lesion. Materials and Methods: We carried out a review of medical records at Hospital América, a photographic record of diagnostic methods, and a review from the literature. Results: A 46-year-old man with constant pain and burning, as well as edema in his left leg and foot for two months. On physical examination, he had edema in his left leg, ankle, and foot, with a slight increase in temperature at the touch, without changing the skin color. Magnetic resonance imaging shows varicosities of the posterior tibial veins with communication through a perforating vein with varicosity of the posterior tibial intraosseous vein - intraosseous varicose vein. Conclusion: This report demonstrates the difficulty of diagnosing intraosseous varices, which, in addition to being a rare lesion, are diagnosed only by magnetic resonance imaging.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Background: Hepatectomies promote considerable amount of blood loss and the need to administrate blood products, which are directly linked to higher morbimortality rates. The blood-conserving hepatectomy (BCH) is a modification of the selective vascular occlusion technique. It could be a surgical maneuver in order to avoid or to reduce the blood products utilization in the perioperative period. Aim: To evaluate in rats the BCH effects on the hematocrit (HT) variation, hemoglobin serum concentration (HB), and on liver regeneration. Methods: Twelve Wistar rats were divided into two groups: control (n=6) and intervention (n=6). The ones in the control group had their livers partially removed according to the Higgins and Anderson technique, while the rats in the treatment group were submitted to BCH technique. HT and HB levels were measured at day D0, D1 and D7. The rate between the liver and rat weights was calculated in D0 and D7. Liver regeneration was quantitatively and qualitatively evaluated. Results: The HT and HB levels were lower in the control group as of D1 onwards, reaching an 18% gap at D7 (p=0.01 and p=0.008, respectively); BCH resulted in the preservation of HT and HB levels to the intervention group rats. BCH did not alter liver regeneration in rats. Conclusion: The BCH led to beneficial effects over the postoperative HT and serum HB levels with no setbacks to liver regeneration. These data are the necessary proof of evidence for translational research into the surgical practice.


RESUMO Racional: As hepatectomias compreendem considerável perda sanguínea e utilização de hemoderivados, o que diretamente estão relacionados com maior morbimortalidade. A hepatectomia hemoconservadora (HH) é modificação da técnica de oclusão vascular seletiva em hepatectomia. Ela pode ser alternativa cirúrgica para evitar ou diminuir o uso de hemoderivados no perioperatório. Objetivo: Avaliar os efeitos da HH sobre o volume globular (VG), concentração de hemoglobina (HB) e sobre a regeneração hepática em ratos. Métodos: Dois grupos de ratos Wistar foram constituídos: controle (n=6) e intervenção (n=6). Os do grupo controle foram submetidos à hepatectomia parcial de Higgins e Anderson e os do grupo Intervenção à HH. VG e HB foram medidos nos dias D0, D1 e D7. A relação peso do fígado/peso do rato foi calculada em D0 e D7. A regeneração hepática foi analisada qualitativamente e quantitativamente. Resultados: Houve diminuição dos níveis de VG e HB nos ratos do grupo controle a partir de D1, atingindo decréscimo de 18% em D7 (p=0,01 e p=0,008 respectivamente); a HH permitiu a manutenção dos níveis de VG e HB nos ratos do grupo intervenção. A HH não alterou a regeneração hepática. Conclusão: HH resultou em níveis maiores de VG e HB pós-operatórios sem alterar a regeneração hepática. Pode-se considerar estes dados como a prova necessária para a translação à pesquisa clinicocirúrgica.

ABSTRACT

The suprarenal glands are bilaterally supplied by three suprarenal arteries and drained by a single suprarenal vein. Variable vascular origins of the fetal suprarenal gland have been documented in different population groups viz. Indian, Polish and Argentinian. However, there is lack of a detailed description regarding the course, relations, number of branches and vertebral levels of the origins of the vasculature of the suprarenal glands in fetuses. This study aimed to identify and document the vascular supply of the suprarenal glands in fetuses in a South African setting. Fifty fetal specimens (26 males; 24 females) with a gestational age ranging between 12 and 20 weeks, were bilaterally micro-dissected (n=100) using a Zeiss Stemi DV4 microscope. Data was recorded and the frequencies of the origin, course, relations, number of branches and vertebral levels of the suprarenal vascular supply were determined. Arterial supply: Origin: (i) The superior suprarenal artery (SSA) bilaterally arose from the inferior phrenic arteries in 98 % of the fetuses; (ii) the middle suprarenal artery (MSA) frequently arose from the renal artery (RA) on the right side (46 %) and the abdominal aorta on the left side (34 %); while (iii) the inferior suprarenal artery (ISA) predominantly arose from the RA in 91 % of the specimens, bilaterally. Course and relations: The suprarenal arteries followed a superior, inferior, lateral, supero-lateral and infero-lateral course to the gland. These arteries were closely related to the crura of the diaphragm, the inferior vena cava, the left inferior phrenic vein and the pancreas. Number of branches: The branches ranged from one to seven for the SSA, one to four for the MSA and one to three for the ISA. Vertebral levels: The SSA predominantly arose from the first lumbar (L1) vertebral body (32 %), the MSA arose from the middle third of the intervertebral disc between the L1 and the second lumbar (L2) vertebrae (19 %) and the ISA arose from the L2 vertebral body (28 %). Venous drainage: In 1 % of the specimens, an additional right suprarenal vein (ARSV) was observed. This ARSV followed a superomedial course into the inferior vena cava, just below the entrance of the main right suprarenal vein. The arteries supplying the suprarenal gland presented varying origins and number of branches, corroborating with the reviewed literature and standard anatomical textbooks. The findings of this study may aid pediatric surgeons in understanding the vascular morphology (and the variations thereof) of the suprarenal gland, when performing adrenelectomy surgery in neonates.


Las glándulas suprarrenales son irrigadas bilateralmente por tres arterias suprarrenales y drenadas por una sola vena suprarrenal. Los orígenes vasculares variables de la glándula suprarrenal fetal se han documentado en diferentes grupos de población: indios, polacos y argentinos. Sin embargo, no existe una descripción detallada del curso, las relaciones, el número de ramas y los niveles vertebrales de los orígenes de la vasculatura de las glándulas suprarrenales en los fetos. Este estudio tuvo como objetivo identificar y documentar el suministro vascular de las glándulas suprarrenales en fetos en una población sudafricana. Cincuenta especímenes fetales (26 hombres; 24 mujeres) con una edad gestacional que oscila entre las 12 y las 20 semanas, fueron micro-diseccionados bilateralmente (n = 100) utilizando un microscopio Zeiss Stemi DV4. Se registraron los datos y se determinaron las frecuencias de origen, curso, relaciones, número de ramas y niveles vertebrales del suministro vascular suprarrenal. Suministro arterial: Origen: (i) La arteria suprarrenal superior (SSA) surgió bilateralmente de las arterias frénicas inferiores en el 98 % de los fetos; (ii) la arteria suprarrenal media (MSA) surgió frecuentemente de la arteria renal (AR) en el lado derecho (46 %) y en la parte abdominal de la aorta en el lado izquierdo (34 %); mientras que (iii) la arteria suprarrenal inferior (AIS) surgió predominantemente de la AR en el 91 % de los especímenes, bilateralmente. Curso y relaciones: las arterias suprarrenales seguían un curso superior, inferior, lateral, superolateral e inferolateral hacia la glándula. Estas arterias estaban estrechamente relacionadas con la crura del diafragma, la vena cava inferior, la vena frénica inferior izquierda y el páncreas. Número de ramas: Las ramas variaron de una a siete para la SSA, de una a cuatro para la MSA y de una a tres para la ISA. Niveles vertebrales: la SSA surgió predominantemente del primer cuerpo vertebral lumbar (L1) (32 %), la MSA surgió del tercio medio del disco intervertebral entre la L1 y la segunda vértebra lumbar (L2) (19 %) y la ISA surgió del cuerpo vertebral L2 (28 %). Drenaje venoso: en el 1 % de las muestras, se observó una vena suprarrenal derecha (ARSV) adicional. Este ARSV siguió un curso superomedial hacia la vena cava inferior, justo debajo de la entrada de la vena suprarrenal derecha principal. Las arterias que irrigaban la glándula suprarrenal presentaban diversos orígenes y número de ramas, lo que corrobora la literatura revisada y los libros de texto anatómicos estándar. Los hallazgos de este estudio pueden ayudar a los cirujanos pediátricos a comprender la morfología vascular (y sus variaciones) de la glándula suprarrenal, al realizar una cirugía de adrenelectomía en neonatos.

ABSTRACT

Complete duplication of testicular veins is a rare phenomenon. However, a few cases of duplication of gonadal veins have been reported. Here, I report a case of unusual formation and termination of the right testicular vein in an adult male cadaver. Five veins arose from the pampinniform plexus and entered the abdomen through the deep inguinal ring. The most medial among the five was large (3 mm in diameter) and it continued as a testicular vein and opened into the right edge of the inferior vena cava, 1 cm above the union of the common iliac veins. The other four veins were about 1 mm in diameter and they united to form two veins in front of the lower part of the right psoas and iliacus muscles (about 2 cm above the deep inguinal ring) and the two veins united to form upper testicular vein, 4 cm above the deep inguinal ring. This testicular vein was 3 mm in diameter and it opened into the inferior vena cava, 4 cm above the union of common iliac veins. Having five veins at deep inguinal ring might increase the chances of varicocele and decrease the chances of indirect inguinal hernia.


La duplicación completa de las venas testiculares es un fenómeno raro. Sin embargo, se han reportado algunos casos de duplicación de venas gonadales. En el presente trabajo se informa un caso de formación y terminación inusual de la vena testicular derecha en un cadáver de un hombre adulto. Cinco venas surgieron del plexo pampiniforme y penetraron en el abdomen a través del anillo inguinal profundo. El más medial entre los cinco fue de gran tamaño (3 mm de diámetro) y continuó como una vena testicular y se abrió hacia el margen derecho de la vena cava inferior, 1 cm por encima de la unión de las venas ilíacas comunes. Las cuatro venas restantes eran de 1 mm de diámetro aproximadamente, y se unieron para formar dos venas frente a la parte inferior de los músculos psoas e ilíaco derechos (aproximadamente 2 cm por encima del anillo inguinal profundo). Se unieron dos venas para formar la vena testicular superior, la cual medía 3 mm de diámetro y se abría hacia la vena cava inferior, 4 cm por encima de la unión de las venas ilíacas comunes. Cinco venas en el anillo inguinal profundo podrían aumentar las posibilidades de varicocele y disminuir las posibilidades de una hernia inguinal indirecta.

ABSTRACT

En 1888, Lejars describió la suela venosa que lleva su nombre. Se trata de un entramado venoso dispuesto en la planta del pie, que involucra los bordes medial y lateral. Dicho autor la describió en forma indirecta, por transparencia, a través de una inyección de resina y negro humo. En esta actualización, se ofrece una descripción directa y detallada de la suela venosa de Lejars mediante inyección con látex (Butaclor), que permitió identificar claramente dos planos. Las disecciones se efectuaron en pies de adultos y en fetos a término. Este trabajo de investigación anatómica pretende demostrar en forma objetiva la existencia de una malla venosa única que resulta imprescindible para la función hidráulica, sobre todo, del talón posterior del pie como centro de apoyo y marcha. Asimismo, se describen las incisiones quirúrgicas más idóneas para el abordaje de afecciones que comprometen dicho entramado. Nivel de Evidencia: IV


In 1888, Lejars described the vein sole that bears his name. It is a venous network arranged on the sole of the foot, which involves the medial and lateral borders. Said author described it indirectly, by transparency, through an injection of resin and black smoke. In this update, a direct and detailed description of the Lejars venous sole is offered by injection with latex (Butachlor), which clearly identified two planes. The dissections were performed on adult feet and full-term fetuses. This paper, based on anatomical research aims to objectively demonstrate the existence of a single venous mesh that is essential for hydraulic function, especially the posterior heel of the foot as a support and walking center. Likewise, the most appropriate surgical incisions are described for the treatment of conditions that compromise this network. Level of Evidence: IV

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to assess the surgical results of the intradural transpetrosectomy for petrous apex meningiomas (PAMs). In addition, we describe the methods and techniques used to expose and manage superior petrous vein and greater superficial petrosal nerve.METHODS: The authors conducted a retrospective study of 16 patients with PAMs operated by the senior author via the intradural transpetrosectomy between February 2012 to May 2017. We reviewed patient data regarding the general characteristics, surgical technique and surgery-related outcomes and adopted a combined follow-up strategy of clinic and telephone contacts to evaluate postoperative complications.RESULTS: Simpson grade I and II resection was performed in 10 out of 16 cases (62.5%), and grade III resection were reported in the remaining six cases (37.5%) with no resultant mortality. The mean Karnofsky Performance Status score was 85.6 preoperatively and improved to 91.9 postoperatively, with a mean follow-up period of 34.4 months (range, 6–66 months). Tumor recurrence was found in two patients and they underwent the second surgical operation.CONCLUSION: PAMs could be completely resected by the intradural transpetrosectomy with an improved survival rate and postoperative life quality. Superior petrous vein and greater superficial petrosal nerve should be managed properly in avoidance of postoperative complications. Finally, most meningioma inside cavernous sinus or adhered to brainstem could be totally removed without postoperative complications.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: To explore the effects of biodegradable magnesium alloy stents (BMAS) on remodeling of vein graft (VG) anastomotic restenosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: To establish a VG restenosis model, seventy two New Zealand rabbits were randomly divided into three groups according to whether a stent was implanted in the graft vein or not. BMASs and 316L stainless steel stents were implanted in BMAS and 316L groups, respectively, while no stent was implanted in the no-treatment control group (NC group). Loss of lumen diameter in the graft vein was measured in all three groups. Upon harvesting VG segments to evaluate intimal proliferation and re-endothelization, the degradation and biological safety of the stents were observed to explore the effects of BMAS on VG remodeling. RESULTS: Model establishment and stent implantation were successful. The BMAS reduced lumen loss, compared with the control group (0.05±0.34 mm vs. 0.90±0.39 mm, p=0.001), in the early stage. The neointimal area was smaller in the BMAS group than the 316L group after 4 months (4.96±0.66 mm2 vs. 6.80±0.69 mm2, p=0.017). Re-endothelialization in the BMAS group was better than that in the 316L group (p=0.001). Within 4 months, the BMAS had degraded, and the magnesium was converted to phosphorus and calcium. The support force of the BMAS began to reduce at 2–3 months after implantation, without significant toxic effects. CONCLUSION: BMAS promotes positive remodeling of VG anastomosis and has advantages over the conventional 316L stents in the treatment of venous diseases.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: Laparoscopic major liver resection (major LLR) remains a challenging procedure because of the technical difficulty. Several significant technical innovations have been applied in our center since 2012. They include routine application of bipolar electrocautery, initiation of temporary increase of intra-abdominal pressure during bleeding events from veins to balance the central venous pressure, and use of temporary inflow control of the Glissonean pedicle. This study evaluated the impact of these technique modifications in patients with major LLR. METHODS: Between January 2004 and February 2015, a total of 606 patients underwent LLR at Samsung Medical Center in Seoul, Korea. Major LLR was employed in 233 cases. All major LLR procedures were anatomical resections performed with a totally laparoscopic approach. We compared surgical parameters of right hepatectomy (RH), left hepatectomy (LH), and right posterior sectionectomy (RPS) before and after 2012. RESULTS: Open conversion rates of RH and LH and estimated blood loss in RPS significantly decreased after 2012. The postoperative complication rate of major LLR was 12.7% and was similar before and after 2012. Bile leakage was the most common complication (3.2%). CONCLUSION: The modifications of surgical techniques resulted in good outcomes for laparoscopic major LLR. We recommend routine application of these techniques to improve outcomes, especially in patients requiring major liver resection.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: Corona mortis is an abnormal arterial or venous anastomosis between the external iliac and the obturator system of vessels and may cause significant hemorrhage during pelvi-acetabular fracture surgeries, hernia repair and laparoscopic gynecological procedures. Previous studies have estimated a prevalence of corona mortis between 34% and 70%. This cadaveric study was conducted to estimate the prevalence of corona mortis in the North Indian population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twelve cadavers (24 hemipelvises; 11 males and 1 female) with a mean age of 68 (range, 54–82) years were included in this study. RESULTS: Corona mortis was observed in 14 hemipelvises (58.3%). A total of 19 (79.2%) vascular anastomoses of diameter greater than 1 mm were observed; 5 hemipelvises (20.8%) had corona mortis on the right side, 9 hemipelvises (37.5%) on the left side and bilateral in 5 (41.7%) cases. Two hemipelvises (8.3%) had an arterial connection. An aberrant obturator artery was observed in 1 (4.2%) hemipelvis. A venous connection was found in 14 specimens (58.3% of hemipelvises). The average distance of the connecting vein from the symphysis pubis was 41 (35–70) mm. A vessel diameter of greater than 4 mm was observed in 4/24 (16.7%) of hemipelvises. CONCLUSION: The frequency of venous corona mortis was higher than arterial corona mortis and the majority (83.3%) were small calibre ( < 4 mm). The presentation pattern and the number of arterial or venous anastomoses were different in the majority of hemipelvises and dissimilar in both hemipelvises of the same cadaver in the majority of cases.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: The purpose of this was to compare effects of application of the skin stimulation method and topical anesthetic cream on pain, heart rate variability and satisfaction according to nursing intervention methods during arteriovenous fistula puncture in chronic renal failure hemodialysis patients. METHODS: This study was a crossover design. Participants were 36 patients with chronic renal failure receiving hemodialysis treatment. Two forms of intervention were applied to participants, and then pain and heart rate variability were measured during the puncture. RESULTS: There were no statistically significant differences according to each treatment in vein pain and artery pain. Also, there were no statistically significant differences according to each treatment in stress index, sympathetic activity (LF), parasympathetic activity (HF) and sympathetic activity/parasympathetic activity (LF/HF ratio). Satisfaction with application of skin stimulation method was statistically higher than that of topical anesthetic cream application. CONCLUSION: This suggests that application of the skin stimulation method complements disadvantages of topical anesthetic cream application and demonstrates possibility of application as a nursing intervention method which can be conveniently used by nurses in clinical practice.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The feature of chronic kidney failure (CKF) is loss of kidney functions due to erosion of healthy tissue and fibrosis. Recent studies showed that Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) differentiated into tubular epithelial cells thus renal function and structures renewed. Furthermore, MSCs protect renal function in CKF. Therefore, we aimed to investigate whether human amnion-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hAMSCs) can repair fibrosis and determine the effects on proliferation and apoptosis mechanisms in chronic kidney failure. METHODS AND RESULTS: In this study, rat model of CKF was constituted by applying Aristolochic acid (AA). hAMSCs were isolated from term placenta amnion membrane and transplanted into tail vein of rats. At the end of 30 days and 60 days of recovery period, we examined expressions of PCNA, p57 and Parp-1 by western blotting. Immunoreactivity of PCNA, Ki67, IL-6 and Collagen type I were detected by immunohistochemistry. Besides, apoptosis was detected by TUNEL. Serum creatinine and urea were measured. Expressions of PCNA and Ki67 increased in hAMSC groups compared with AA group. Furthermore, expressions of PARP-1 apoptosis marker and p57 cell cycle inhibitory protein increased in AA group significantly according to control, hAMSC groups and sham groups. IL-6 proinflammatory cytokine increased in AA group significantly according to control, hAMSCs groups and sham groups. Expressions of Collagen type I protein reduced in hAMSCs groups compared to AA group. After hAMSC treatment, serum creatinine and urea levels significantly decreased compared to AA group. After injection of hAMSC to rats, Masson’s Trichrome and Sirius Red staining showed fibrosis reduction in kidney. CONCLUSIONS: According to our results hAMSCs can be ameliorate renal failure.
