Bentall’s procedure is a type of cardiac surgery to replace part of the aorta and the aortic valve of the heart because of pathological aortic conditions. Button aneurysm of coronary artery is a rare and uncommon condition following Bentall’s procedure. Here, we present a case of a 29-year-old female who developed left coronary artery button aneurysm four years after Bentall’s procedure for ascending aortic aneurysm....

Chronic contained rupture of the abdominal aortic aneurysm presents a high risk of progression to free rupture which carries a high mortality rate, therefore urgent management is essential. We present a case of an 80-yearold woman with lower abdominal pain 6 months earlier that spontaneously remitted. A contrast-enhanced computed tomography indicated a contained ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. Patient reported worsen abdominal pain leading to hospitalization 30 days after first evaluation. D...

The incidence of ischemic heart disease (IHD) is increasing worldwide. The number of patients with IHD with or without interventions coming for non-cardiac surgical procedures are increasing. These patients have an increased risk of myocardial ischemia, myocardial infarction (MI), conduction disturbances, morbidity, and mortality during the perioperative period. This study aimed to assess the surgical management of ischemic heart disease patients in Al- Thawrah hospital Sana’a Yemen from 2018 ...

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...

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...

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...

Advances in medicine and experimental biology have supported the definition of concepts related to the process of cellular stress, depending on new discoveries at the molecular level. Oxidative stress is the product of the activity of various metabolic pathways including the mitochondrial electron chain, Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate Oxidase (NADPH), nitric oxide synthase, xanthine oxidase, among others. Physiologically, regular levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) play a fundam...

Endovascular treatment of acute stroke patients with tandem lesions is technically challenging. We sought to evaluate clinical and interventional factors that might influence the clinical outcome in these patients. We retrospectively analysed the interventional and clinical data of patients with tandem lesions and acute embolic stroke in the anterior circulation that underwent endovascular stroke treatment at our institution. Patients were selected if they had a CTA-proved vessel occlusion of th...

While sclerotherapy may seem safe, catastrophic complications have been reported, including local and systemic adverse reactions. For example, extensive tissue necrosis and cerebrovascular accident (stroke) Patient selection is vital and treating physicians should be aware of all potential complications and discuss them with their patients, prior to treatment, to obtain informed consent. Physicians also need to be prepared to manage catastrophic complications that could lead to amputation or dea...

To elucidate age-related changes of the first septal perforator branch (FSB), the authors investigated age-related changes of elements in the FSBs by direct chemical analysis. In addition, the effects of different arterial sizes and genders on element accumulation were investigated in the FSBs. Sixty-two formalin-fixed adult Thai hearts were used and the FSBs were carefully dissected in the hearts. After the arteries were incinerated with nitric acid and perchloric acid, element contents were de...

Vascular complications after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) are uncommon but they can compromise the viability of the limbs. The incidence of popliteal pseudoaneurysms after total knee arthroplasty varies from 0.03 to 0.5%. We present the case of a popliteal pseudoaneurysm as a complication after a TKA. A 76-year-old woman with a diagnosis of right knee osteoarthritis is undergoing TKA. During the postoperative period, the patient presented a pulsating and progressive growing mass in the poplitea...

The general purpose of research either clinical or basic is to describe links existing between an identified disease and its whole environment from the surrounding tissues and the patient, to his ecosystem. From this point of view berry aneurisms are extremely interesting: They develop from normal tissues, their cause is largely unknown, and their evolution is barely predictable but dramatic in case of disruption. Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) from a ruptured aneurysm accounts for around 5% of a...

Superficial temporal artery pseudoaneurysms are well known to occur following blunt trauma to the forehead, but their manifestation after penetrating trauma is considerably less often reported. A middle-aged male presented with a pulsatile mass on his forehead that had been growing slowly. He reports being accidentally cut by his barber in that location 2-3 months prior. This was determined to be a superficial temporal artery aneurysm by physical diagnosis. The aneurysm was surgically resected, ...
