Critical Limb Ischaemia for Thrombosed Common Femoral Artery Aneurysm: A Successful Hybrid Treatment

Orellana Dávila Bernardo, MD, Fresilli Mauro, MD, Oddi Fabio Massimo, MD, Diotallevi Nicolò, MD, Ascoli Marchetti Andrea and Ippoliti Arnaldo

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 13, 2021

True atherosclerotic aneurysms of the common femoral artery (CFA) are rare and often associated with other peripheral or aortic aneurysms. Degenerative aneurysms of the lower extremity most commonly involve the popliteal artery, while they are rarely detected in the femoral region. In this region, aneurysms most frequently involve the common femoral artery (CFA), whereas true aneurysms of the superficial femoral artery (SFA) represent only 15% to 25% of femoral arterial aneurysms. We report a ca...

Mitochondrial Dysfunction and Insulin Resistance: Topic of High Interest in Research

Ivan Lozada Martinez, Daniela Torres Llinás, Jaine Anaya Rivera, Jennifer Jiménez Valverde and Milena Castro Berrio

Article Type: Commentary | First Published: December 06, 2021

Insulin resistance is a condition derived from the disorder in the use of substrates for metabolic activities. It can be caused by chronic hyperinsulinemia, inflammation, and long-term use of corticosteroids. In vivo and in vitro models have revealed that this process is secondary to the excessive production of mitochondrial oxidants, a product of mitochondrial dysfunction, even in cases where mitochondrial respiration is conserved. Insulin increases the number of type 4 glucose transporters (GL...

Cerebral Hemorrhagic Manifestation of Extra-Cardiac Infective Endocarditis: What Radiological Diagnostic Approach Should Be Taken?

Husam H Mansour

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: July 31, 2021

Infective endocarditis results from microbial infection of intracardiac structures and is highly fatal if untreated. The infection is typically clinically silent prior to the onset of cerebral hemorrhagic events. A 56-year-old male with a history of mitral valve replacement presented to the emergency department complaining of vague symptoms combined with neurological and cardiac problems. The patient was admitted, and medical investigations were performed. Blood tests and cultures indicated that...

It is ambiguous whether the myocardial bridge (MB) over the coronary arteries and their branches is present in or absent from dextrocardia with situs inversus. Two cases of dextrocardia with situs inversus were accidentally found in adult Thai hearts received for researches from the Department of Anatomy, Faculty of Medicine, Chiang Mai University. They were found in 43- and 78-year-old Thai men. One case of dextrocardia with situs inversus was found in gross anatomy practice of Chiang Mai Unive...
