1/191. Combined femoral pseudoaneurysm and arteriovenous fistula: diagnosis by Doppler color flow mapping.

    This case report is the first to describe a combined femoral pseudoaneurysm and arteriovenous fistula resulting from a cardiac catheterization, diagnosed by color Doppler.

2/191. arteriovenous fistula of the thyroid gland associated with spontaneous bleeding from a flow-induced aneurysm of the inferior thyroid artery.

    A case of acute, spontaneous cervical hemorrhage caused by a ruptured aneurysm of the inferior thyroid artery is described. This lesion was accompanied by an arteriovenous fistula within the thyroid gland that caused a flow-induced aneurysm. Diagnosis and treatment were successfully performed by selective angiography with endovascular occlusion and embolization. Both diagnostic and therapeutic management are discussed, and the related literature is reviewed. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of an aneurysm of a thyroid artery in conjunction with an intraparenchymatous arteriovenous fistula of the thyroid gland.

3/191. Peripheral arterial involvement in neurofibromatosis type 1--a case report.

    Neurofibromatosis is a dominantly inherited, progressive, generalized dysplasia of mesodermal and neuroectodermal tissues. Vascular lesions associated with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1) are mainly characterized by stenosis, occlusion, aneurysm, pseudoaneurysm, and rupture or fistula formation of small, medium, and large-sized arteries. The authors hereby present a rare case of NF-1 with bilateral aneurysms and large pseudoaneurysms of the femoral and popliteal arteries and occlusion of the left superficial femoral artery.

4/191. Endovascular treatment of noncarotid extracranial cerebrovascular disease.

    The last two decades have witnessed a growing application of endovascular techniques for the treatment of atherosclerotic disease of the extracranial vertebral arteries, subclavian arteries, and brachiocephalic artery. Beginning with simple balloon angioplasty, these minimally invasive techniques have now progressed to the use of stent-supported angioplasty. Stent-supported angioplasty is currently providing a therapeutic alternative to traditional methods of open surgery for revascularization of these vessels and increasing the therapeutic options available for patients who have failed maximal medical therapy. Additionally, endovascular techniques are also being used successfully to treat a variety of nonatherosclerotic diseases affecting the noncarotid extacranial arteries, such as inflammatory, radiation, and anastomotic-graft strictures; acute intimal dissection; traumatic and spontaneous arteriovenous fistulas; and aneurysms or pseudoaneurysms. Continued innovation and refinement of endovascular devices and techniques will inevitably improve technical success rates, reduce procedure-related complications, and broaden the endovascular therapeutic spectrum for extracranial cerebrovascular disease.

5/191. Right coronary artery to left ventricular fistula associated with left ventricular aneurysm.

    An infant with right coronary artery to left ventricular fistula associated with left ventricular aneurysm successfully underwent a division of fistula under cardiopulmonary bypass. Follow-up angiogram showed the patency of the right coronary artery, no recurrence of fistula, and the regression of the left ventricular aneurysm. Because the lesion may progress with age, early diagnosis and surgical intervention are indicated to prevent later complications.

6/191. Hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia: hepatic lesions demonstrated with colour Doppler and power Doppler sonography.

    Visceral vascular abnormalities in patients with hereditary haemorrhagic teleangiectasia (HHT) include teleangiectasis, arteriovenous fistula (AVF), and aneurysms. Sonographic findings and colour Doppler ultrasound (CDU) features of HHT in the liver have been described in a few reports. Presented here is the CDU finding of liver with HHT involvement in two patients, aged 52 and 29 years, respectively. Power Doppler sonography was also performed in the first patient in whom both CDU and power Doppler sonography could demonstrate the abnormal vascular channels in the liver. In the second patient, aneurysms in the left hepatic lobe and of the splenic artery were noted. angiography was performed in both patients and confirmed the abnormal vascular lesions demonstrated by CDU and/or power Doppler sonographic findings.

7/191. aneurysm in the pulmonary trunk associated with atrial septal defect, a left coronary artery fistula to the pulmonary trunk, and valvular pulmonary stenosis.

    A 78-year-old woman with an aneurysm in the pulmonary trunk associated with an atrial septal defect, left anterior descending coronary artery fistula to the pulmonary trunk and valvular pulmonary stenosis is reported. The aneurysm showed gradual dilatation over 16 years and was successfully treated using aneurysmorrhaphy. Although there has been some controversy regarding the optimum management for a pulmonary artery aneurysm, surgical correction is thought to be essential for aneurysms associated with congenital cardiac anomalies because of the high incidence of rupture.

8/191. hepatic artery aneurysm in a patient with Behcets disease and segmental pancreatitis developing after its embolization.

    Segmental pancreatitis is an unusual form of acute pancreatitis mostly seen in the head of pancreas. We present the CT findings of a segmental pancreatitis in the body and tail of the pancreas developed following endovascular embolization of a giant hepatic artery aneurysm and arterioportal fistula in a patient with Behcet's disease.

9/191. Sinoatrial nodal artery aneurysm with right ventricular outflow tract compression: report of a case.

    We described a 16-year-old boy with sinoatrial nodal (SAN) artery aneurysm that drained into right atrium and compressed right ventricular outflow tract. The patient was clinically asymptomatic. Hemodynamic study revealed a 15 mm Hg peak systolic pressure gradient at right ventricular outflow tract. The fistula was successfully excised without sequalae. Cathet. Cardiovasc. Intervent. 51:328-331, 2000.

10/191. A case report of a patient with a large aneurysmatic coronary artery fistula.

    A coronary artery fistula is a rare congenital malformation, which can become symptomatic in adulthood. This report describes a 65-year-old patient with a large aneurysmatic fistula who presented with signs of heart failure. Angiographically a large aneurysmatic fistula was found running from the left coronary artery to the junction of the superior vena cava and the right atrium.
