Aortic dissection is one of the most serious aortic diseases by its potential for rupture, but also for other complications, such as cerebral or splanchnic ischemia, which may be fatal. If open surgery is the rule for lesions of the ascending aorta (type A), type B (not concerning the ascending aorta) is first a matter of medical treatment except when complications are present. In this case the placement of a stentgraft is a valuable alternative to open surgery. We report a patient presenting with a type B aortic dissection, characterized by rapid expansion and complicated by peri-aortic leakage, who was successfully treated by thoracic aortic stentgraft placement. This was done in a hybrid operating room associating the characteristics of a classical operating room for cardio-vascular surgery with those of an interventional radiology suite. [less ▲]

Cardiovascular disease is the main cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with Marfan syndrome. The most life threatening complication is aortic root aneurysms leading to aortic dissection or rupture. It can be prevented by regular aortic follow-up and prophylactic aortic surgery. Modern aortic surgery has led to a substantial increase in the life expectancy of these patients. We report two cases of Marfan syndrome with cardiovascular complications. Their management is discussed according to the most recent literature. [less ▲]

Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is known to be an effective palliative treatment in unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Although TACE can control tumour growth and palliate the patients, complications of TACE with significant morbidity are well known and adversely affect the outcome of patients. Necrotic tumor rupture is a serious complication of TACE and has a high mortality rate. We report a case of ruptured HCC following TACE in a 78-year-old male patient who subsequently developed peritonitis and pneumoperitoneum. This case gives us the opportunity to underline the importance of such complications and demonstrates the utility of CT imaging for diagnosis and management of patients with ruptured HCC. [less ▲]

Endoleaks represent the most common complication of endovascular aortic aneurysm repair. With the increasing use of endovascular techniques for aortic aneurysm repair, the prevalence of endoleaks has risen. While maintaining pressurization of the aneurysm sac, endoleaks expose to persistent risks of an evolution towards rupture. Long-term surveillance with imaging studies is necessary to reduce the incidence of these specific complications that may require intervention. The objective of this article is to draw the attention to the possible occurrence of these complications and to report the elements of diagnosis and treatment. [less ▲]

Aortic pseudo-aneurysm is a well-known late complication after surgical repair of aortic coarctation. We report two cases of pseudo-aneurysm of the aortic isthmus evidenced after previous surgical repair of congenital aortic coarctation. These clinical observations give us the opportunity to underline the importance of a specific lifelong medical follow-up for patients who have undergone such surgery. [less ▲]
