- An Unusual Case of Occlusive Thromboaortopathy (Takayasu's Disease)--A Case Report. Disler, Laurence; Hide, Gareth // Angiology;Apr1988, Vol. 39 Issue 4, p401
A case of Takayasu's disease presenting in a young man as a solid abdominal mass is described. The literature is reviewed and classifications of the disease are discussed. Occlusive thomboaortopathy, also known as â€œpulseless diseaseâ€ or Takayasu's disease, was first described in 1908...
- Posteolectomy Arteriovenous Fistula. Currin, John F.; Metcalf, Boyd H. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Oct1966, Vol. 46 Issue 4, p352
Reports the case of a Caucasian male with postcolectomy arteriovenous fistula. Explanation on arteriovenous fistulas; Medical examinations conducted on the patient; Information on cardiac decompensation.
- A Rare Case of Hemangiopericytoma in the Maxilla of a 4-Year-Old Child. Sinha, Abhishek; Rawson, Kamala; Singh, Govind // Journal of Indian Academy of Oral Medicine & Radiology;Oct-Dec2010 Supplement, Vol. 22, pS64
Hemangiopericytoma is a rare vascular tumor that originates from small pericapillary spindle-shaped cells. Clinical diagnosis of such a lesion is an extremely challenging task because there are very few detailed reports of such a lesion and one would hardly think of a diagnosis such as...
- Cardiovascular highlights from non-cardiology journals. Lindsay, Alistair // Heart;Feb2013, Vol. 99 Issue 4, p285
The article focuses on the association of diabetes with coronary artery disease and highlights the treatment of multivessel disease by coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). CABG reduces the rates of myocardial infarction and heart disease related mortality. It also informs that in patients with...
- PATTERN OF OCCLUSIVE PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASE IN INDIA. Kinare, S. G.; Kher, Y. R.; Rao, G.; Sen, P. K. // Angiology;Mar1976, Vol. 27 Issue 3, p165
The pattern of peripheral vascular disease In India was studied in 89 patients undergoing amputation for vascular insufficiency. A control group of 26 limbs was studied for aging changes. Clinically, cases were classified into TAO (25). ASO (54) and thrombo-embolic disease (10). Angiographic,...
- Variability and Reproducibility of Transcutaneous Oxygen Tension Measurements in the Assessment of Peripheral Vascular Disease. Rooke, Thom W.; Osmundson, P. J. // Angiology;Aug1989, Vol. 40 Issue 8, p695
Transcutaneous oxygen tension (TcPO2) was measured according to a standard protocol in 43 limbs from 23 subjects, by use of oxygen-sensing electrodes attached to the chest (at a single site) or dorsum of the foot (at proximal and distal sites, located 1ï¿½2 cm apart). With the subjects...
- Truncating mutations in CCM1, encoding KRIT1, cause hereditary cavernous angiomas. Couteulx, Sophie Laberge-le; Jung, Hans H.; Labauge, Pierre; Houtteville, Jean-Pierre; Lescoat, Christelle; Cecillon, Michaelle; Marechal, Emmanuelle; Joutel, Anne; Bach, Jean-François; Tournier-Lasserve, Elisabeth // Nature Genetics;Oct99, Vol. 23 Issue 2, p189
Cavernous angiomas are vascular malformations mostly located in the central nervous system and characterized by enlarged capillary cavities without intervening brain parenchyma. Clinical symptoms include seizures, haemorrhage and focal neurological deficits. Cavernous angiomas prevalence is...
