Title: Traumatic Axillary Artery Dissection with Radial Artery Embolism

Abstract

This report describes a case of pathologically proven traumatic arterial dissection, presenting as complete occlusion of the axillary artery with radial artery embolism. Occlusion of the axillary artery by traumatic dissection mimicked transection and radial artery embolism mimicked congenital absence of the radial artery on the initial angiogram, but these were correctly diagnosed with the following sonogram.

  • A 20-year-old man was admitted to the emergency department after falling 15 m onto the roof of a car and landing on his back. Imaging by computed tomography (CT) showed delayed perfusion of the right kidney and no excretion of contrast from that kidney on delayed images. Angiography confirmed a localized intimal dissection in the right main renal artery. We inserted a balloon-expandable stent using a transfemoral approach to successfully repair the dissection. At 4 year follow-up, Doppler ultrasound of the right renal artery and renal scintigraphy demonstrated preserved function of the right kidney. Our findings support endovascular stenting asmore » a safe, effective and efficient treatment for blunt renal artery injury.« less
  • This paper reports on the early and midterm results of endovascular treatment of acute carotid artery dissections, its specific problems, and its limitations. We encountered seven patients with symptomatic extracranial carotid artery dissection, three cases of which occurred after carotid endarterectomy, two after carotid angioplasty and stenting, and two after trauma. Balloon-expandable and self-expanding stents were placed using a transfemoral approach. Success in restoring the carotid lumen was achieved in all patients. No procedure-related complications occurred. All patients experienced significant clinical improvement while in the hospital and achieved complete long-term recovery. At follow-up (mean, 22.4 months), good luminal patency ofmore » the stented segments was observed. In conclusion, in this small series, primary stent-supported angioplasty seems to be a safe and effective strategy in the treatment of selected patients having acute traumatic extracranial carotid artery dissection, with excellent early and midterm results. Larger series and longer-term follow-up are required before definitive recommendations can be made.« less
