RESUMO

We report a rare case of a ruptured giant left anterior descending coronary artery pseudoaneurysm that necessitated salvage operative repair. This case affirms the life-threatening nature of this clinically significant pathology, as well as the need for emergent repair before pseudoaneurysm rupture to maximize the likelihood of patient survival.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Mycotic aortic pseudoaneurysm is a rare complication after heart transplantation (HTX) with remarkable mortality. Intrathoracic infection is a well-documented predisposing factor for this disease. Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa or Candida species are commonly isolated from resected specimens of the pseudoaneurysms. We demonstrate a unique case of mycotic pseudoaneurysm caused by presumably donor-derived Pseudomonas infection in a heart transplant recipient. CASE PRESENTATION: Our 67-year-old male patient treated with diabetes mellitus underwent HTX. The donor suffered from epiglottic abscess and pneumonia with known microorganisms including Pseudomonas, therefore both the donor and recipient received targeted antimicrobial therapy and prophylaxis. Five months after the uneventful HTX, lab test of the asymptomatic patient showed moderate, increasing C-reactive protein level without obviuos source of infection. Chest computed tomography showed a large (90 mm) saccular dilatation of the tubular portion of ascending aorta. Urgent surgical intervention identified a pseudoaneurysm, histological examinations and cultures of the resected aorta verified Pseudomonas aeruginosa aortitis, while all blood cultures remained negative. Retrospective interrogation of other transplanted organs of the donor supported donor-derived infection as the transport fluid of the right kidney grew Pseudomonas. The patient received 3 weeks of ceftazidime followed by 7 months of oral ciprofloxacin therapy. One year after the operation the patient was asymptomatic with normal inflammatory markers. CONCLUSIONS: Donor-derived infection is a rare but potential cause of aortitis. Early diagnosis, surgical intervention and adjuvant antibiotic therapy seem to be the keys to successful management of mycotic pseudoaneurysms after HTX.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The formation of a uterine artery pseudoaneurysm is rare and isolated cases have been reported in the existing literature following caesarean sections, curettages and cone biopsies. There has been no report of pseudoaneurysm formation following a loop electrosurgical excision procedure. Vaginal bleeding could potentially be life threatening if this diagnosis is not considered following cervical instrumentation or surgery. Management options range from haemostatic sutures, image-guided embolisation to surgical repair. We report the diagnosis and management of a case of uterine artery pseudoaneurysm after a loop electrosurgical excision procedure. CASE PRESENTATION: A 37-year-old woman was diagnosed with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 3 (CIN3) and underwent a therapeutic loop electrosurgical excision procedure. One month after the procedure, the patient presented to the emergency department with repeated episodes of sudden-onset heavy vaginal bleeding associated with hypotension and syncope. A computed tomography angiogram was performed, which demonstrated a pseudoaneurysm of the right uterine artery. Following the diagnosis, image-guided embolisation was performed successfully. Post-embolisation angiograms showed successful embolisation of the pseudoaneurysm and the patient had no further episodes of bleeding. CONCLUSIONS: Loop electrosurgical excision procedures are generally safe but rarely, can be complicated by the formation of uterine artery pseudoaneurysms. The depth of the loop electrosurgical excision procedure and vascular anatomy should be considered to prevent such complications. A computed tomography angiogram appears to be ideal for diagnosis. Image-guided embolisation is safe and effective as a therapeutic measure, with minimal morbidity.

RESUMO

Penetrating trauma due to nail gun is an uncommon yet important clinical entity. There are numerous case reports describing these injuries, yet few describe those resulting in cerebrovascular injury. Laceration of cerebral blood vessels may result in significant intracranial haemorrhage and cerebral ischaemia, with catastrophic consequences. In the present study, we report a female patient who was shot in the face with a nail gun in a domestic assault. The nail entered her right cavernous sinus and lacerated her right internal carotid artery causing a pseudoaneurysm and a caroticocavernous fistula. This report details the approach to, and pitfalls of, managing a cerebrovascular injury due to penetrating intracranial nail. Catheter cerebral angiography is essential in the diagnosis and treatment of these injuries. Best treatment and outcomes require clinicians with expertise in endovascular and surgical repair strategies.

RESUMO

Partial nephrectomy (PN) for small renal tumors has become increasingly common. Complications of PN include renal artery pseudoaneurysm (PA), a potentially life-threatening condition. However, the true incidence and natural history of PA after PN remain unclear. Therefore, we conducted a retrospective study of the radiographic characteristics of robotic-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) observed during the postoperative period. We selected 36 consecutive patients with renal carcinoma who underwent RAPN at our institution between December 2016 and May 2019. Patients with contraindications for the use of contrast medium were excluded. A total of 31 eligible patients underwent computed tomography angiography (CTA) during the early postoperative period after RAPN and the incidence of PA was evaluated. Among the patients with PASs, asymptomatic PAs were followed without intervention and their clinical course was assessed using CTA at 1 to 3 months postoperatively. PA was identified in 5 out of 31 (16.1%) patients after RAPN. Median duration between PN and the first CTA was 6 days (range, 1-8). Median PA size was 13 mm (range, 8-17). All (100%) PAs were asymptomatic and resolved spontaneously, as verified by CTA during the late postoperative period. Median duration between identification of PA on early postoperative CTA and subsequent resolution was 92 days (range, 35-106). Our findings indicated that asymptomatic PA after PN can be followed without intervention.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Hemobilia refers to bleeding into the biliary tract. Hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm (HAP) rupture is an uncommon cause of hemobilia, and cases of HAP associated with Mirizzi syndrome are extremely rare. Although transarterial embolization is recommended as the first-line treatment for hemobilia, surgery is sometimes required. CASE PRESENTATION: A 76-year-old woman was referred to our hospital with epigastric pain. She was febrile and had conjunctival icterus and epigastric tenderness. Laboratory tests revealed abnormal white blood cell count and liver function. An abdominal computed tomography (CT) revealed multiple calculi in the gallbladder, an incarcerated calculus in the cystic duct, and a slightly dilated common hepatic duct. Based on examination findings, she was diagnosed with Mirizzi syndrome type I, complicated by cholangitis. Intravenous antibiotics were administered, and we performed endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) to place a drainage tube. The fever persisted; therefore, contrast-enhanced CT (CECT) was performed. This revealed portal vein thrombosis and hepatic abscesses; therefore, heparin infusion was administered. The following day, she complained of melena, and laboratory tests showed that she was anemic. ERCP was performed to change the drainage tube in the bile duct; however, bleeding from the papilla of Vater was observed. CECT demonstrated a right HAP with high-density fluid in the gallbladder and gallbladder perforation. Finally, she was diagnosed with hemobilia caused by HAP rupture, and emergency surgery was performed to secure hemostasis and control the infection. During laparotomy, we found that a right HAP had ruptured into the gallbladder. The gallbladder made a cholecystobiliary fistula, which indicated Mirizzi syndrome type II. Although we tried to repair the right hepatic artery, we later ligated it due to arterial wall vulnerability. Then, we performed subtotal cholecystectomy and inserted a T-tube into the common bile duct. There were no postoperative complications except for minor leakage from the T-tube insertion site. The patient was discharged after a total hospital stay of 7 weeks. CONCLUSIONS: We experienced an extremely rare case of emergency definitive surgery for hemobilia due to HAP rupture complicated by Mirizzi syndrome type II. Surgery might be indicated when controlling underlying infections was required.

RESUMO

Nosebleeds are among the most familiar presentations to the emergency department as well as otorhinolaryngologic outpatient services. Bleeding from nasal septal branches of the anterior ethmoid artery (AEA) is common and can be effectively controlled endoscopically. However, the bleeding from a pseudoaneurysm involving the nasal septal branches of AEA is extremely rare and can be troublesome to control using endoscopic methods. We report an adult patient presenting with profuse nasal bleeding postroad traffic accident due to the formation of AEA septal branch pseudoaneurysm. The patient required repeated nasal packing, and the diagnosis was revealed using digital subtraction angiography. Since profuse active bleeding precluded endoscopic visualisation, an external approach had to be adopted to ligate the AEA to control the bleeding. We discuss the management options and nuances for this rare cause of the troublesome nasal bleeding.

RESUMO

A 71-year-old woman was admitted for cardiac tamponade due to left ventricular free wall rupture after acute myocardial infarction. Sutureless repair was performed for bleeding from the inferior wall. Fifteen days later, computed tomography demonstrated enlargement of a left ventricular pseudoaneurysm. Patch closure using a vascular prosthesis was performed through left thoracotomy. No recurrence of the left ventricular aneurysm has been observed since.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Endovascular treatment (EVT) is considered a preferred procedure of superficial femoral artery (SFA) pseudoaneurysm in recent years. However, heterotopic ossification (HO) after SFA pseudoaneurysm is a rare occurrence, that may cause late stent-graft fracture. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 58-year-old male who underwent EVT for SFA pseudoaneurysm 8 years ago presented with a progressive mass at the right thigh and claudication. Computed tomography angiography (CTA) showed fracture and occlusion of stent-graft, which was compressed by the deep femoral artery (DFA) pseudoaneurysm and a bone-like body. DIAGNOSIS: According to the CTA images, the stent-graft was fractured and occluded, accompanied by DFA pseudoaneurysm. INTERVENTIONS AND OUTCOMES: Debridement and arterial reconstruction were performed. Pathological analysis showed that the bone-like body was derived from HO. CTA at one-year follow-up showed that the prosthetic vessel was patent and previous hematoma disappeared. CONCLUSIONS: This report demonstrates that residual hematoma can induce HO, which may result in late stent fracture, and it should thus be removed timely. Patients with SFA pseudoaneurysm who have undergone EVT should be followed up regularly.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND Acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB) is often associated with favorable outcomes. It is readily diagnosed and managed with colonoscopy, or may resolve spontaneously. Rarely, extra-colonic sources of bleeding may masquerade as lower GIB, posing a diagnostic challenge and potentially lead to harm if there are therapeutic delays. An example is cystic artery pseudoaneurysm, a rare complication of acute cholecystitis and laparoscopic cholecystectomy, which may bleed through a cholecystocolic fistula presenting as lower GIB. CASE REPORT A 66-year-old man with multiple comorbidities including coronary artery disease with multiple stents and peripheral arterial disease presented with massive hematochezia. He was on aspirin 81 mg, clopidogrel 75 mg, and rivaroxaban 20 mg daily. The patient was hemodynamically unstable with BP 77/50 mmHg and heart rate 115 beats/min. Pertinent laboratory investigations showed hemoglobin 10.4 g/dL, WBC 17.2×10³/uL, platelet 437×10³/uL, and INR 1.28. Total bilirubin and liver enzymes were normal. Following prompt volume resuscitation with crystalloids and 2 units of O-negative blood, CT angiogram of the abdomen revealed a ruptured cystic artery pseudoaneurysm bleeding through a cholecystocolic fistula. This developed as a complication of undiagnosed gangrenous cholecystitis. The patient was sent for transcatheter embolization and the bleeding was controlled. The gangrenous cholecystitis was managed conservatively due to the patient's high surgical risk. CONCLUSIONS Although extra-intestinal sources of gastrointestinal bleeding are rare, clinicians should maintain a high index of suspicion, especially in elderly patients presenting concomitantly with right upper-quadrant pain. As delayed diagnosis leads to increased fatality rates, a prompt CT angiogram of the abdomen is pertinent in suspected cases.

RESUMO

A mycotic aneurysm of the distal radial artery following access for cardiac catheterisation is a rare complication that has not been described in the literature. We present the case of an 84-year-old man who developed bacteraemia and cellulitis over his left first dorsal webspace 2 days after undergoing cardiac catheterisation through the distal radial artery at the anatomic snuffbox. Ultrasound scanning and CT imaging were concerning for a possible pseudoaneurysm at that location. Once we confirmed that the patient had adequate flow through his hand with angiography and an Allen's test, we explored his left hand and found a mycotic aneurysm of the distal radial artery with surrounding frank purulence. We resected the aneurysm and ligated the artery. Pathology confirmed that this was a mycotic aneurysm. The patient quickly recovered from his infection after this definitive treatment.

RESUMO

A 79-year-old male with a history of ESRD and treated MRSA endocarditis was found to have a recurrence of MRSA bacteremia. He was treated with antibiotics. During his hospitalization, he suddenly developed complete heart block requiring transcutaneous pacing, and subsequently transvenous pacing wires were placed. Transesophageal echocardiography demonstrated pseudo- aneurysm of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa as well as aortic valve thickening, and a mitral vegetation. Cardiothoracic surgery was consulted to obtain source control, but the patient was deemed to be a poor surgical candidate. While continuing medical therapy and transvenous pacing, the patient developed refractory hypotension, acidosis, and ultimately expired.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Hemobilia is a rare cause of upper gastrointestinal bleeding that originates from the biliary tract. It is infrequently considered in diagnosis, especially in the absence of abdominal trauma or history of hepatopancreatobiliary procedure, such as cholecystectomy, which can cause arterial pseudoaneurysm. Prompt diagnosis is crucial because its management strategy is distinct from other types of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Here, we present a case of massive hemobilia caused by the rupture of a gastroduodenal artery pseudoaneurysm in a patient with a history of laparoscopic cholecystectomy 3 years prior to presentation. CASE PRESENTATION: A 44-year-old Indonesian female presented to the emergency department with complaint of hematemesis and melena accompanied by abdominal pain and icterus. History of an abdominal trauma was denied. However, she reported having undergone a laparoscopic cholecystectomy 3 years prior to presentation. On physical examination, we found anemic conjunctiva and icteric sclera. Nonvariceal bleeding was suspected, but esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed a blood clot at the ampulla of Vater. Angiography showed contrast extravasation from a gastroduodenal artery pseudoaneurysm. The patient underwent pseudoaneurysm ligation and excision surgery to stop the bleeding. After surgery, the patient's vital signs were stable, and there was no sign of rebleeding. CONCLUSION: Gastroduodenal artery pseudoaneurysm is a rare complication of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The prolonged time interval, as compared with other postcholecystectomy hemobilia cases, resulted in hemobilia not being considered as an etiology of the gastrointestinal bleeding at presentation. Hemobilia should be considered as a possible etiology of gastrointestinal bleeding in patients with history of cholecystectomy, regardless of the time interval between the invasive procedure and onset of bleeding.

RESUMO

A 43-year-old man with a history of double sleeve right upper lobectomy for pulmonary sarcoma, presented with worsening haemoptysis. Bronchoscopic and positron emission tomography (PET)CT appearances were suspicious for disease recurrence; however, on attending for CT-guided biopsy, he was found to have a large pseudoaneurysm of his right pulmonary artery. The patient underwent placement of endovascular covered stent with fluoroscopic confirmation of pseudoaneurysm occlusion, and was discharged home on lifelong antiplatelet therapy. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm following double (bronchovascular) sleeve resection of the lung, successfully treated by endovascular stenting.
