ABSTRACT
The carotid sinus serves as an accessible and versatile structure in diagnosis and treatment. Its practical application in the diagnosis of carotid sinus hypersensitivity, embolism or thrombosis of the bifurcation, certain arrhythmias, and many other clinical conditions has been discussed. Its therapeutic value in acute left ventricular failure, anginal pains, and arrhythmias has also been presented.

    Thrombosis of the internal carotid artery (ICA) due to blunt trauma is more common than generally appreciated. Mortality is high (about 50%) and so is the morbidity in those that survive. Because of the varied clinical picture and the frequent lucid interval, a definitive diagnosis is often made...

    Focuses on the high incidence of recanalization of veins which thrombosed early in the postoperative where delayed phlebography or casual examination of autopsy material would fail to indicate the earlier thrombosis which later resulted in a lumen by the process of recanalization. Incidence of...

    Late stent thrombosis (>1 year after implantation) is a recognised complication involving drug-eluting stents. Stent fracture is increasingly being reported as a complication of drug-eluting stent, and in particular sirolimus-eluting stent use. We report the case of very late sirolimus-eluting...

    The treatment of acute thrombosis of the femoral and iliac veins consists of (1) venous thrombectomy, and (2) thrombolysis. The therapy aims at (1) preventing lethal pulmonary embolism, and (2) restoring venous bloodflow and preserving the valvular system to prevent a post-thrombotic syndrome....

    Beh�et's syndrome is a multisystem disorder with unknown etiology. Clinically it is mostly seen as a systemic vasculitis; almost 30% of the patients have vascular involvements, and most of these are venous thrombosis and arterial aneurysms. Obstructions of the femoral and tibial arteries...
