Wedged Hepatic Venous Pressure in Congenital Heart Disease
- VENOUS PRESSURE AND COMPLIANCE OF THE PERIPHERAL CAPACITANCE VESSELS. Kato, Masataka; Saiki, Seiichi; Ogino, Tadayoshi; Suzuki, Tomoyuki; Kojima, Arao; Koeda, Toshihiko; Kimura, Takeshi // Angiology;Dec1976, Vol. 27 Issue 12, p677
Compliances of the peripheral capacitance vessels decreased gradually in accordance with the increase in pressure of the brachial vein. The relationship between them formed a number of hyperbolic-like curves, the same results as those found in many cases of both normal subjects and patients with...
- Migration of an Endovascular Stent From Superior Vena Cava to the Right Ventricular Outflow Tract in a Patient With Superior Vena Cava Syndrome. Poludasu, Shyam S.; Vladutiu, Pompeiu; Lazar, Jason // Angiology;Feb/Mar2008, Vol. 59 Issue 1, p114
Migration of endovascular stents is a rare problem but can be fatal. We report an unusual case of an endovascular stent in the right ventricular outflow tract, which migrated from superior vena cava in a patient with superior vena cava syndrome.
- Absence of the Azygos Vein Associated with Double Superior Vena Cava. Arslan, Gökhan; Özkaynak, Can; Çubuk, Metin; Sindel, Timur; Lüleci, Ersin // Angiology;Jan1999, Vol. 50 Issue 1, p81
A rare case of absence of the azygos vein associated with double superior vena cava is presented. Imaging findings on plain chest film and on contrast-enhanced computed tomography are described, and the embryology of azygos and hemiazygos veins is reviewed.
- The Effects of Dexmedetomidine Administration on the Pulmonary Artery Pressure and the Transpulmonary Pressure Gradient After the Bidirectional Superior Cavopulmonary Shunt. Nishibe, Shinichi; Imanishi, Hirokazu; Mieda, Tsutomu; Tsujita, Miki // Pediatric Cardiology;Jan2015, Vol. 36 Issue 1, p151
The hemodynamic effects of dexmedetomidine (DEX) on pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) are not fully understood in patients with a single-ventricle physiology. The objective of this retrospective study was to characterize the effect of perioperative DEX infusion on PAP and the transpulmonary...
- The relationship between superior vena cava diameter and collapsibility and central venous pressure. Cowie, B. S.; Kluger, R.; Rex, S.; Missant, C. // Anaesthesia & Intensive Care;2015, Vol. 43 Issue 3, p357
The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between superior vena cava (SVC) diameter, collapsibility and central venous pressure (CVP) in cardiac surgical patients. SVC maximum and minimum diameters, plus collapsibility with ventilation, were measured with transoesophageal...
- Permanent Myocardial Dysfunction Caused by High-Voltage Electrical Injury. Chattar-Cora, Deowall; Tutela Jr., Rocco R.; Tulsyan, Nirman; Patel, Roshani; Cudjoe, Ernest A.; Onime, Godfrey D. // Angiology;Jul/Aug2004, Vol. 55 Issue 4, p455
Ensnarement of inferior vena cava filters with central line guide wires is an infrequent complication that has been sporadically reported. The authors present 4 patients who experienced this complication. They review the literature, make recommendations to avoid this preventable complication,...
- Persistent left sided superior vena cava. Ho, K. L.; Tan, J. I. // Heart;Aug2006, Vol. 92 Issue 8, p1046
The article describes a case of paradoxical hypotension during fluid resuscitation in 63-year-old patient with central venous catheter residing in the coronary sinus of a persistent left-sided superior vena cava. The paradoxical systolic blood pressure drop could be attributed to the high...
- Aortic Pseudoaneurysm as a Rare Cause of Superior Vena Cava Syndrome. Baldari, Duccio; Sungwai Chiu; Salciccioli, Louis // Angiology;May/Jun2006, Vol. 57 Issue 3, p363
This case is about an aortic pseudoaneurysm after Dacron graft replacement that presented as a rapidly evolving superior vena cava syndrome.
- Congenital Familial Vascular Anomalies: A Study of Patients with an Anomalous Inferior Vena Cava, and of Their First-Degree Relatives. Obernosterer, Andrea; Aschauer, Manuela; Mitterhammer, Heike; Lipp, Rainer W. // Angiology;Jan/Feb2004, Vol. 55 Issue 1, p73
With magnetic resonance angiography and computed tomography, congenital anomalies of the inferior vena cava are diagnosed more frequently than they used to be. Accessory renal arteries identified by magnetic resonance angiography in a patient with an anomalous inferior vena cava indicated a...
