Purpose Determination of oxygen concentration in tissues affected by chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) has shown inconsistent results over the years and has confounded the pathophysiology of venous diseases. This study measured transcutaneous partial oxygen pressure (TcPO2) levels in patients with CVI to assess oxygenation and variation in oxygenation according to CVI stage. Materials and. Methods A prospective study was performed on consecutive patients with unilateral CVI. TcPO2 of diseased a...

PURPOSE This study aims to compare the imaging findings of carotid body tumors on contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) with the intraoperative Shamblin grade and to evolve an imaging-based scoring system that can accurately predict the Shamblin grade. METHODS Preoperative contrast-enhanced CT scans of 40 patients who underwent surgical excision of carotid body tumors in our institution between 2004 and 2017 were retrospectively reviewed. The angle of contact with the internal carotid arter...

BACKGROUND: To identify and address the factors which lead to ulceration in patients with chronic venous disease is essential to prevent progression of disease. Obesity is one such controversial factor. The aim of our study was to assess the influence of body mass index on the development of ulceration in patients with venous disease. We also analysed other risk factors that might lead to progression of disease to ulceration. METHODS: This was a prospective case control study conducted at the Va...

A 56-year-old male was evaluated for postprandial abdominal pain and was detected to have an inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) aneurysm associated with critical ostial stenosis of the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries. He underwent aneurysmorrhaphy of the IMA along with revascularization of the superior mesenteric artery with graft from the aorta using a 6-mm ringed polytetrafluoroethylene graft and made an uneventful recovery.

Introduction: Superficial venous thrombosis (SVT) is an underestimated and underreported disorder. Till date, there are no Indian epidemiological studies which have looked at the community or hospital prevalence rate of SVT. Patients and Methods: A retrospective cross-sectional study was done in the department of vascular surgery including all patients diagnosed and managed for SVT over the period of 2011–2018. All patients with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) were also screened for involvement of th...

Introduction: Carotid body tumor (CBT) excision at times requires a multidisciplinary approach. Requests for mandibular swing or mandibular subluxation were received by the department of dental and oral surgery to aid in CBT excision. Methods: Patients who were referred between March 2013 and April 2018 were retrospectively reviewed. Criteria for deciding between mandibular swing and mandibular subluxation for each patient were identified and outcome of the decision was analyzed. Follow-up perio...

Background Prostaglandins are potent vasoactive agents with other properties of vasodilatation, fibrinolysis and inhibition of platelet aggregation. Prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) has been used in the treatment of peripheral vascular diseases (PVD), mainly in patients with nonreconstructable PVD and also as an adjunct when there is residual ischemia after revascularization. Our experience in using PGE1 at a tertiary care center in South India is presented here along with a review of literature. Materia...

Background. Thromboangiitis obliterans (TAO) or Buerger disease is a recurring progressive segmental vasculopathy that presents with inflammation and thrombosis of small and medium arteries and veins of the hands and feet. The exact cause remains unknown, with tobacco use (primarily smoking but also smokeless tobacco) being highly associated with the disease. The diagnosis is clinical and the lack of a diagnostic gold standard is a deterrent to diagnosing it in patients with atypical presentatio...
