ABSTRACT

RESUMEN Los pseudoaneurismas de la arteria humeral son infrecuentes, pero pueden asociarse a complicaciones de alta morbilidad como la isquemia de miembro superior. Comunicamos un caso de pseudoaneurisma humeral en el pliegue del codo, que se presentó como tumor pulsátil con leve disminución de la temperatura y parestesias en la mano homolateral de un año de evolución, debido a una punción arterial inadvertida durante la venopunción para extracción de sangre. Se trató con éxito mediante resección quirúrgica más reconstrucción vascular con bypass húmero-cubital y bypass húmero-radial ambos con vena safena. Se discuten las diversas opciones terapéuticas disponibles para los pseudoaneurismas humerales considerando las características anatómicas y la sintomatología del paciente.


ABSTRACT Brachial artery pseudoaneurysms are rare but can be associated with severe complications as ischemia of the upper extremity. We report a case of a brachial artery pseudoaneurysm in the crease of the elbow presenting as a pulsating mass with progressive growth over the past year. The ipsilateral hand was sightly cold and presented paresthesia. The lesion was due to inadvertent arterial puncture during venipuncture. The pseudoaneurysm was successfully treated with surgical resection and vascular reconstruction with a brachial to ulnar artery bypass and brachial to radial artery bypass with saphenous vein graft. The different therapeutic options available for brachial artery pseudoaneurysms are discussed, considering the anatomic characteristics and patients' symptoms.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: Los aneurismas arteriales son poco frecuentes en edad pediátrica, sin embargo; se observa un incremento en la incidencia de pseudoaneurismas a partir de traumatismos vasculares, sobre todo, por la aplicación de procederes invasivos. También se observan en procesos infecciosos y tumorales adyacentes, que acaban por lesionar la pared arterial. La mayoría suelen ser asintomáticos, o se presentan como una masa pulsátil que se asientan sobre la zona de la arteria afectada. Objetivo: Demostrar la importancia del diagnóstico temprano de los pseudoaneurismas para el tratamiento quirúrgico oportuno y evitar complicaciones posteriores. Presentación del caso: se discute un caso de una paciente de dos años de edad con un trauma vascular iatrogénico en la extremidad inferior derecha, que se manifestó como una tumoración pulsátil. Se realizó eco-doppler y angiografía, con lo que se diagnosticó un aneurisma de la arteria femoral derecha. Se realizó una exéresis y reconstrucción vascular con buena evolución. Conclusiones: El diagnóstico rápido de estas entidades vasculares evita que se presenten complicaciones posteriores y aseguran una evolución rápida y satisfactoria de los pacientes que las padecen(AU)


Introduction: Arterial aneurysms are rare in the pediatric ages. However, it is observed an increasement of the incidence of pseudoaneurysms caused by vascular traumas, mainly due to the use of invasive procedures. It is also present in infectious and tumour processes that end up injuring the arterial wall. Most of them are asymptomatic or are presented as a pulsatile mass that sets up over the affected artery's zone. Objective: To show the importance of early diagnosis of pseudo-aneurysms. Case presentation: It is presented the case of a two years old patient with a iatrogenic vascular trauma in the right lower limb that manifested in the way of a pulsatile tumor. Through an eco-Doppler and an angiography, an aneurysm of the right femoral artery was diagnosed, which led to an excision and a vascular reconstruction with good evolution. Conclusions: Early diagnosis of these vascular entities allows its timely surgical treatment, avoids the appearance of further complications and assures a prompt and satisfactorily evolution of the patients(AU)

ABSTRACT

Pseudoaneurysms of gluteal arteries are rare, especially involving the inferior gluteal artery. They are mainly associated with penetrating trauma, infections, or pelvic fractures. A minority of cases are caused by blunt traumas, with only six cases reported in English. We present a case of pseudoaneurysm of the right inferior gluteal artery after a bicycle fall, presenting with a large hematoma in the gluteal region, observed during clinical examination, and significantly reduced hemoglobin. CT angiography revealed a large hematoma, with contrast extravasation and pseudoaneurysm formation. Angiography revealed that the origin of the lesion was in the right inferior gluteal artery. This artery was embolized with coils. After the procedure, the patient was referred to an intensive care unit, from where he was later transferred to a different hospital, with bleeding controlled. Endovascular treatment of these cases is a safe, fast and an effective option


Pseudoaneurismas de artérias glúteas são raros, especialmente os que envolvem a artéria glútea inferior. Eles estão associados principalmente a traumas penetrantes, infecções ou fraturas de pelve. Em uma minoria de casos, são causados por traumas fechados, havendo somente seis casos relatados na literatura. Apresenta-se aqui um caso de pseudoaneurisma da artéria glútea inferior direita após queda de bicicleta, evoluindo com grande hematoma na região glútea ao exame clínico e queda hematimétrica significativa. A angiotomografia revelou um grande hematoma na região glútea, com extravasamento de contraste e formação de pseudoaneurisma no local. A angiografia revelou que a origem da lesão era na artéria glútea inferior direita. Foi realizada embolização dessa artéria com molas. Após esse procedimento, o paciente foi encaminhado para a unidade de terapia intensiva, de onde foi posteriormente transferido para outro hospital, com o sangramento controlado. Para esses casos, o tratamento endovascular é uma opção segura, rápida e efetiva

ABSTRACT

Bullet embolization of the arterial or venous systems is a rare complication of penetrating gunshot injuries. A 29-year­old man presented at the emergency department with a gunshot wound to the left arm, which had transfixed the arm and entered the thorax, with no exit wound. Initial radiographies showed a projectile in the upper left thigh. Contrast­enhanced tomography showed a pseudo-aneurysm of the descending thoracic aorta and the bullet inside the proximal left superficial femoral artery. Physical examination found diminished left pedal pulses, and the patient complained of left toe numbness. Endovascular thoracic aortic pseudoaneurysm repair was performed, sealing the descending aortic orifice with an endograft, and thromboembolectomy/bullet retrieval was carried out via a left femoral incision, both successfully. Considering that diagnosis of missile emboli depends on a high degree of suspicion, physicians who manage gunshot wound patients must be acutely aware of the possibility of intravascular bullet embolism


A embolia balística pelo sistema arterial ou venoso é uma complicação rara de ferimentos penetrantes por arma de fogo. Um homem de 29 anos se apresentou na emergência com um ferimento por arma de fogo no braço esquerdo, que transfixou o braço e atingiu o tórax, sem ferimento de saída. Radiografias iniciais mostraram o projétil na coxa superior esquerda. A tomografia contrastada mostrou um pseudoaneurisma da aorta torácica descendente e o projétil no interior da artéria femoral superficial proximal esquerda. Ao exame físico, o pulso pedioso esquerdo estava diminuído e o paciente referiu dormência no hálux esquerdo. Foi realizado o reparo endovascular da aorta torácica e a tromboembolectomia/retirada do projétil por incisão femoral esquerda, ambos bem-sucedidos. Considerando que o diagnóstico de embolia balística depende de um alto grau de suspeição, os médicos que manejam pacientes com ferimentos por arma de fogo devem estar atentos a essa possibilidade

ABSTRACT

Las lesiones vasculares en cirugía artroscópica corresponden a menos del 1% de todas las complicaciones. En la reconstrucción del ligamento cruzado posterior, dada la relación anatómica existente entre el mismo y las estructuras neurovasculares de la región poplítea, el riesgo de lesión de la arteria poplítea es alto, aunque infrecuente según lo informado en la literatura médica. Dado la baja incidencia de esta complicación, pero su potencial gravedad, presentamos un caso de un pseudoanerurisma de la arteria poplítea luego de la reconstrucción artroscópica del ligamento cruzado posterior. Tipo de estudio: Reporte de caso. Nivel de evidencia: IV.


Vascular lesions in arthroscopic surgery correspond to less than 1% of all complications. In the reconstruction of the posterior cruciate ligament, given the anatomical relationship between it and the neurovascular structures of the popliteal region, the risk of injury to the popliteal artery is high but infrequent as reported in the medical literature. Given the low incidence of this complication, but its potential severity, we present a case of a pseudoanerurysm of the popliteal artery after the arthroscopic reconstruction of the posterior cruciate ligament. Type of study: Case report. Level of evidence: IV.

ABSTRACT

Os autores apresentam um relato de caso de vítima de acidente de trabalho com ferimento penetrante em região inguinal direita com peça metálica em espiral, que evoluiu com fístula arteriovenosa da artéria femoral profunda com a veia femoral profunda associado a pseudoaneurisma envolvendo essas estruturas e a veia femoral comum. As fístulas arteriovenosas ocorrem frequentemente após traumas e a associação com pseudoaneurisma é fato raro, devendo ser tratadas precocemente após seu diagnóstico. O ultrassom duplex é atualmente o exame mais utilizado para a avaliação inicial e a arteriografia, o padrão ouro para diagnóstico. No paciente em questão foi realizado tratamento convencional com abordagem cirúrgica direta, sutura arterial e ligaduras venosas. Entretanto, nos dias atuais a cirurgia endovascular e a compressão guiada por ultrassom são métodos terapêuticos que têm sido utilizados com sucesso. O paciente evoluiu sem intercorrência, recebendo alta para acompanhamento ambulatorial com preservação do membro.


This article describes the case of a work accident victim with a penetrating wound to the right inguinal region caused by a metal spiral. The patient developed an arteriovenous fistula between the deep femoral artery and deep femoral vein, combined with a pseudoaneurysm surrounding these structures and the common femoral vein. Arteriovenous fistulas frequently occur after traumas, but the combination of fistula and pseudoaneurysm is rare. It is recommended that they be treated immediately after diagnosis. Duplex ultrasound is the most widely used method for initial assessment and arteriography is the gold standard for diagnosis of arteriovenous fistulas. Endovascular surgery has recently been used successfully in such cases. However, this patient was treated conventionally using a direct surgical approach, arterial suture and venous ligatures, and the limb was saved. The patient developed no complications and was discharged to outpatients follow-up.

ABSTRACT

As complicações locais de uma lesão arterial penetrante incluem hematoma, pseudoaneurisma e formação de fístula arteriovenosa. A artéria femoral profunda, por sua localização anatômica, é sede infrequente de lesões traumáticas. Relatamos um caso de paciente jovem, vítima de agressão por arma branca em face posterior de coxa, em que foi diagnosticada, tardiamente, lesão de ramo descendente da artéria femoral profunda, sendo então tratada com técnica endovascular. A revisão de literatura corrobora a raridade do caso, sendo a maioria dos casos de lesão traumática de artéria femoral profunda relatada como decorrente de complicação de procedimentos ortopédicos ou fraturas envolvendo o fêmur proximal.


The local complications of penetrating injuries involving arteries include hematoma, pseudoaneurysm and arteriovenous fistulas. Traumatic injuries to the deep femoral artery are uncommon because of its anatomic location. We report the case of a young male patient who was victim of a stab wound to the posterior thigh who was later diagnosed with an injury to the descending branch of the deep femoral artery and treated using endovascular techniques. A review of the literature confirmed the rarity of the case, since the majority of cases of traumatic injuries to the deep femoral artery that have been reported were due to complications during orthopedic procedures or fractures involving the proximal femur.

ABSTRACT

Pseudoaneurysm of mitral‑aortic intervalvular fibrosa (P‑MAIVF) is a rare cardiac surgical condition. P‑MAIVF commonly occurs as a complication of aortic and mitral valve replacement surgeries. The surgical trauma during replacement of the valves weakens the avascular mitral and aortic intervalvular area. We present a case of P‑MAIVF recurrence 5 years after a primary repair. Congestive cardiac failure was the presenting feature with mitral and aortic regurgitation. In view of the recurrence, the surgical team planned for a double valve replacement. The sewing rings of the two prosthetic‑valves were interposed to close the mouth of the pseudoaneurysm and to provide mechanical reinforcement of the MAIVF. Intra‑operative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) helped in delineating the anatomy, extent of the lesion, rupture of one of the pseudoaneurysm into left atrium and severity of the valvular regurgitation. Post‑procedure TEE confirmed complete obliteration of the pseudoaneurysm and prosthetic valve function.

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION: Femoral pseudoaneurysms are a complication that occurs in connection with up to 8% of percutaneous procedures. Of the available treatments, ultrasound guided thrombin injection has a high success rate and is well-tolerated by patients. The combination of thrombin and fibrinogen known as fibrin sealant forms a stable clot and can be used to treat pseudoaneurysms, particularly those with complex anatomy and larger size. OBJECTIVE: To compare the results of treating femoral pseudoaneurysm in two ways: Group T was treated with thrombin alone and Group T+F was treated with fibrin sealant (thrombin+fibrinogen). METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted of femoral pseudoaneurysm cases treated between January 2005 and December 2012. RESULTS: Twenty-eight patients were treated, 21 with thrombin alone and seven with fibrin sealant. All patients in group T were treated successfully, but only four patients in group T+F were treated successfully (57.1% success rate in Group T+F, p<0.01). The three cases of failure in group T+F needed surgery and in one of these cases the complication was embolization to the femoral bifurcation. The pseudoaneurysms that were treated with fibrin sealant were larger (25 cm3 in Group T and 57.7 cm3 in Group T+F, p=0.02) and required larger volumes of thrombin (0.5 mL in Group T and 1.0 mL in Group T+F, p<0.01). There was one complication in Group T and two complications in Group T+F (p<0.01). CONCLUSIONS: Irrespective of the small number of cases reviewed, treatment with thrombin alone was superior to treating with fibrin sealant, since it caused few complications and was more effective at correcting pseudoaneurysms. .


INTRODUÇÃO: O pseudoaneurisma femoral é complicação descrita em até 8% dos procedimentos percutâneos. Dentre os tratamentos, a injeção de trombina guiada por ultrassom tem alta taxa de sucesso e boa tolerância pelos pacientes. O uso da trombina associada ao fibrinogênio, chamado selante de fibrina, forma um coágulo estável que pode ser usado para o tratamento do pseudoaneurisma, principalmente aqueles de anatomia complexa e maiores. OBJETIVO: Comparar os resultados do tratamento do pseudoaneurisma femoral em dois grupos: Grupo T, tratado com trombina isoladamente, e Grupo T+F, tratado com selante de fibrina (trombina+fibrinogênio). MÉTODO: Análise retrospectiva dos casos de pseudoaneurisma femoral tratados entre janeiro/2005 e dezembro/2012. RESULTADOS: Foram tratados 28 pacientes, 21 com trombina isolada e sete com selante de fibrina. Houve sucesso no tratamento de todos os pacientes do grupo T e somente em quatro casos do grupo T+F (57,1% no Grupo T+F, p<0,01). Os três casos de insucesso no grupo T+F necessitaram cirurgia, sendo que, em um deles, a causa foi embolização para a bifurcação femoral. Os pseudoaneurismas tratados com selante de fibrina apresentaram maior tamanho (25 cm3 no Grupo T e 57,7 cm3 no Grupo T+F, p=0,02) e houve necessidade de maior volume de trombina (0,5 mL no Grupo T e 1,0 mL no Grupo T+F, p<0,01). Houve uma complicação no Grupo T e duas no Grupo T+F (p<0,01). CONCLUSÃO: Apesar do número reduzido de casos, o tratamento com trombina isolada foi superior ao selante de fibrina, levando a poucas complicações e à maior eficácia para resolução do pseudoaneurisma. .

ABSTRACT

A 17-year-old male patient presenting with an abdominal gunshot wound and severe hypovolemic shock was initially operated and presented several injuries to the small bowel and cecum associated with severe hemorrhage. The patient had to be operated twice due to hypothermia, acidosis, and coagulopathy. In the late postoperative period, murmur and fremitus were observed. Angiography revealed a pseudoaneurysm associated with arteriovenous fistulae at the left external iliac vessels. Lesions were repaired with a stent graft placed in the external iliac artery, with a satisfactory outcome. Control computed tomography performed 6 months later evidenced artery integrity with closure of the fistulae. Endovascular therapy should be the preferred method in this type of vascular trauma complications.


Um paciente do sexo masculino com 17 anos de idade apresentando-se com ferimento abdominal por arma de fogo e choque hipovolêmico grave foi inicialmente operado e apresentava várias lesões no intestino delgado e ceco associadas a hemorragia grave. O paciente teve que ser operado duas vezes devido a hipotermia, acidose e coagulopatia. No período pós-operatório tardio, foram observados sopro e frêmito. Angiografia revelou um pseudoaneurisma associado a fístulas arteriovenosas nos vasos ilíacos externos ao lado esquerdo. As lesões foram tratadas mediante a colocação de stent na artéria ilíaca externa, com desfecho satisfatório. Tomografia computadorizada de controle realizada após 6 meses evidenciou integridade da artéria, com o fechamento das fístulas. O tratamento endovascular deve ser o método de escolha nesse tipo de complicação vascular traumática.

ABSTRACT

Left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) pseudoaneurysm is a rare occurrence and may produce clinically unpredictable symptoms. A very few cases of LVOT pseudoaneurysm are reported and there has always been a predisposing factor in these reported cases such as history of infective endocarditis, myocardial infarction, prosthetic aortic valve replacement or chest trauma. Our patient did not have the above predisposing conditions. Intra operative transesophageal echocardiography helped patient management and guided the surgical team in securing and isolation of the aneurysmal sac from the LVOT.

ABSTRACT

Renal artery pseudoaneurysms are uncommon vascular lesions that require a high degree of suspicion because they are usually difficult to diagnose. Posttraumatic renal artery pseudoaneurysms should be treated because spontaneous resolution is extremely unusual, and the risk of aneurysm rupture is high. We describe the case of a patient who presented with a pulsatile mass in the right upper quadrant and recurrent abdominal pain 18 months after blunt trauma. Arteriography and multislice computed tomography angiography revealed a pseudoaneurysm measuring 22 cm in the right renal artery. The patient was successfully treated with conventional open surgery.


Pseudoaneurismas de artéria renal são lesões vasculares pouco comuns, que geralmente demandam alto grau de suspeição, por serem de difícil diagnóstico. Considerando a baixa expectativa de resolução espontânea dos PARs pós-traumáticos, aliada ao importante risco de rotura, faz-se necessária a correção destas lesões. Apresentamos o caso de um paciente, vítima de trauma contuso há 18 meses, com queixa de massa pulsátil em hipocôndrio direito associado a dor abdominal recorrente. Depois da arteriografia e angiotomografia multislice, foi diagnosticado um pseudoaneurisma de artéria renal direita com 22 cm de extensão, sendo então submetido a tratamento cirúrgico por via aberta convencional, com sucesso terapêutico.

ABSTRACT

A 32-yr-old man developed progressive exertional dyspnea 4 yr after blunt chest trauma due to an automobile accident. Two-dimensional echocardiography and computed-tomographic coronary angiography demonstrated a large pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricle and severe tricuspid regurgitation. The patient underwent successful surgical exclusion of the pseudoaneurysm by endoaneurysmal patch closure and repair of the tricuspid valve regurgitation. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of these 2 different pathologies presenting late simultaneously after blunt chest trauma and successful surgical repairs in the published literature.

ABSTRACT

Los aneurismas de la arteria hepática son relativamente poco frecuentes y representan del 16 al 20 % de los aneurismas de las arterias viscerales. Las manifestaciones clínicas no son específicas y pueden incluir dolor abdominal, hemorragia digestiva alta o ictericia obstructiva, como el caso que se presenta. Caso clínico: presenta el caso de un hombre de 17 años remitido por ictericia obstructiva; se determinó que la patología causante era un pseudoaneurisma de más de 30 mm. de diámetro en la arteria hepática propia, de origen traumático. La evolución fue tórpida por las lesiones asociadas, pese a la colaboración intensiva de distintas especialidades y al tratamiento electivo. Conclusiones: este tipo de aneurisma ocurre con muy poca frecuencia y tiene un pronóstico muy incierto. El tratamiento debe ser necesariamente individual para cada caso. La ictericia constituyó el signo de debut e indicó la gravedad del pseudoaneurisma de la arteria hepática, cuyo pronóstico es incierto, precisando tratamiento individualizado. Debe seleccionarse cuidadosamente el abordaje que requiere cada paciente, y aunque la vía endovascular es una opción, a veces es imposible recurrir a ella por la complejidad de la localización de la lesión, de ahí la necesidad de que el cirujano posea experiencia en el eje hepatobiliar y su vascularización.

ABSTRACT

O pseudoaneurisma da zona fibrosa intervalvar mitroaórtica (PFMA) é uma doença pouco frequente, em geral secundária a endocardite da valva aórtica, particularmente em próteses valvares. Seu curso clínico é variável e pode ocasionar complicações graves, como ruptura para o pericárdio, aorta ou átrio esquerdo, compressão sistólica das artérias coronárias ou compressão sistólica da valva mitral, ocasionando regurgitação mitral acentuada, motivo pelo qual se recomenda seu tratamento cirúrgico. Neste relato é apresentado o caso de paciente com 69 anos de idade, assintomático, com antecedente de duas cirurgias de revascularização miocárdica, a última associada a troca valvar aórtica. O PFMA foi diagnosticado incidentalmente na evolução pós-operatória tardia, optando-se pelo tratamento percutâneo com a prótese AmplatzerTM Muscular VSD Occluder.
