We describe a case of a patient with a thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm, affecting the origin of the celiac trunk, with the particularity of the normal aortic diameter in the segment between superior mesenteric artery […]
The nutcracker syndrome (NS) is a rare condition characterized by the entrapment of the left renal vein (LRV) between the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and the aorta. Clinically, it presents with flank pain, hematuria, and symptoms of pelvic venous congestion. Several surgical techniques have […]
To report long-term outcome when using a bifurcated aortic endograft for treatment of aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD) in Trans Atlantic Inter Society Consensus (TASC) classification C and D patients.
Endoprosthesis placement was performed in all […]
Ten-year Retrospective Study of Treatment of Malignant Colonic Obstructions with Self-expandable Stents.
de Gregorio MA, Laborda A, Tejero E, Miguelena JM, Carnevale FC, de Blas I, Gimenez M, Maynar M, D’Agostino H.
To describe the use of self-expandable metallic stents to manage malignant colorectal obstructions and to compare the radiation dose between fluoroscopic guidance of stent placement and combined endoscopic and fluoroscopic guidance.
Late complications after surgical repair of aortic coarctation are not uncommon. Among these complications pseudoaneurysms are the most frequent complications, occurring between 3 and 38%. Reoperation in these patients is associated with high morbidity […]
Successful Occlusion of a Ruptured Aortic Aneurysm Using the Amplatzer Vascular Plug: a Technical Note
Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm is related with a 100% mortality rate if left untreated. Even with surgical intervention or endovascular repair, mortality is still extremely high. However, there are conditions in which neither open surgical aneurysm repair nor endovascular aneurysm […]
Stent-assisted Coil Embolization of a Mycotic Renal Artery Aneurysm by use of a Self-expanding Neurointerventional Stent
Mycotic aneurysms are uncommon, especially those located in visceral arteries. We present a case of a patient with two visceral mycotic aneurysms due to bacterial endocarditis, one located in right upper pole renal artery and the second in the splenic artery. […]

Rabellino M, Aragón-Sánchez J, González G, Zander T, Baldi S, Garcia-Nielsen L, Armas-Suarez S, Barbero P, Luis-Rodríguez D, Maynar M.
To present the outcomes of endovascular treatment of diabetics patients with critical limb ischemia who have end-stage renal disease. Limb-salvage was achieved in 58.6% of the limbs during a mean follow-up period of 12.4 months. […]
