- Pseudoaneurysm of internal mammary artery caused by pulmonary actinomycosis. Wani, N. A.; Rawa, I. A.; Pala, N. A.; Kosar, T. // British Journal of Radiology;Nov2010, Vol. 83 Issue 995, pe235
Although internal mammary artery pseudoaneurysms are a rare vascular abnormality, they are sometimes seen after sternotomy, diagnostic and therapeutic vascular access or penetrating chest trauma. To our knowledge, internal mammary artery pseudoaneurysm caused by pulmonary actinomycosis has not...
- Elongation of right internal thoracic artery with radial artery for redo total arterial revascularization in patients with open left internal thoracic artery to left anterial descending artery graft. Zhang, Ruoyu; Zardo, Patrick; Haverich, Axel; Ismail, Issam // European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery;Jul2009, Vol. 36 Issue 1, p206
Abstract: Total arterial revascularization in patients with three-vessel disease cannot usually be achieved by bilateral internal thoracic artery grafts alone due to limited length. In this report we describe a technique by which the right internal thoracic artery can be elongated with radial...
- Thirty-Year Experience with Bilateral Internal Thoracic Artery Grafting: Where Have We Been and Where Are We Going? Kurlansky, Paul // World Journal of Surgery;Apr2010, Vol. 34 Issue 4, p646
As a profession, surgery is well into its fourth decade of experience with bilateral internal thoracic artery (BITA) grafting for the treatment of ischemic cardiovascular disease. Numerous compelling retrospective analyses appear to have documented a clear benefit for BITA grafting over the use...
- Fistulae of the internal thoracic vessels: report of two cases Hassan, Ansar; Campbell, Donald R.; Bethune, Drew C.; Ali, Imtiaz S. // European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery;Feb2002, Vol. 21 Issue 2, p358
Arteriovenous fistulae involving the internal thoracic vessels are extremely rare. The multiple causes, variable clinical presentation, and inconsistent delay of onset of clinical symptoms in addition to their rarity make their diagnosis difficult. However, the complications of untreated...
