Correction of aortic coarctation in a girl with severe PHACE syndrome - Xiong, Lian; Xia, Zhenkun; Fan, Chengming; Zhang, Weizhi; Yang, Jinfu
A 12-year-old Chinese girl was demonstrated multivessel distortion and malformation: aortic coarctation with the narrowest lumen diameter measuring of 4 mm located between the left common carotid artery and the left subclavian artery, a huge and thin-walled aneurysm is connected to the coarctation, and the descending aorta was distorted. Cerebrovascular revealed distorted arteries and a completely aberrant brain blood supply. She underwent correction of the aortic coarctation by establishing a bypass between the ascending aorta and the descending aorta using a 13-mm Gore-tex tube. Postoperative recovery was uneventful, at 6-month follow-up, the cervical vascular pulsatility was relieved and she is in...
A rare case of mixed mucinous cystadenoma with serous cystadenoma of the pancreas treated by laparoscopic central pancreatectomy - Zhang, Ren-Chao; Xu, Xiao-Wu; Zhou, Yu-Cheng; Wu, Di; Ajoodhea, Harsha; Chen, Ke; Mou, Yi-Ping
Mixed mucinous cystadenoma with serous cystadenoma of the pancreas is rare. There have been only two previous case reports in the English-language literature. We present a case of a 46-year-old woman who was diagnosed with mixed mucinous cystadenoma with serous cystadenoma of the pancreas. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed a cystic neoplasm in the dorsal/proximal body of the pancreas with a clear-margin multilocular cavity and enhanced internal septum. The patient underwent laparoscopic central pancreatectomy. The diagnosis of mixed mucinous cystadenoma with serous cystadenoma of the pancreas was confirmed by pathological examination. The patient was followed up for 3...
Percutaneous transhepatic placement of a stent-graft to treat a delayed mesoportal hemorrhage after pancreaticoduodenectomy - Ginsburg, Michael; Ferral, Hector; Alonzo, Marc J; Talamonti, Mark S
Postoperative hemorrhage is one of the most severe complications after pancreaticoduodenectomy. While detection of bleeding from adjacent arteries via conventional angiography and treatment with endovascular arterial coil embolization has been well established, to date no reports of percutaneous therapy for mesoportal hemorrhage have been published. This article describes an unusual case of delayed post-pancreaticoduodenectomy hemorrhage detected on a fluoroscopic drain check and treated with percutaneous transhepatic covered stent placement.
Video Q&A: Tobacco-related mortality: past, present and future. An interview with Alan Lopez - Lopez, Alan D
In this video Q & A, we talk to Alan Lopez about the global burden of tobacco-related mortality. Prof Lopez highlights how this epidemic emerged in the past, and how it is likely to progress in the future. He also discusses ways in which countries that currently have few or no tobacco-control policies in place can apply measures to curtail premature mortality.
