The primary concern was acute mesenteric ischemia, for which the patient underwent a selective SMA arteriography, which revealed a complete (100%) SMA occlusion with proximal intimal dissection and normal celiac axis (Figure 3).
Selective bronchial arteriography was consequently performed and it showed tortuous, dilated, and elongated branches of the bronchial artery in the region of the right lower lobe bronchus [Figure 1]d.
while massive resuscitation continued and the patients remained without coagulopathy, emergent visceral arteriography was performed with no arterial extravasation identifed.
The patient was immediately transported to the cardiac catheterization laboratory, where coronary arteriography demonstrated a normal right coronary artery (FIGURE 2A).
Coronary arteriography showed total occlusion at the origin of a wraparound left anterior descending with retrograde filling of the left anterior descending back to its origin via collaterals from the right coronary artery.
The aneurysm was confirmed during an arteriography with an endovascular coiling in the first 24 h.
Arteriography of the foot in congenital deformities.
It has also been suggested that the presence of tortuous common carotid artery may mimic neck region aneurysms, and in such cases, performing arteriography is contraindicated and carries a risk of arterial injury (4).
The patient was subsequently transferred to the radiology suite for pelvic arteriography where, without a tamponading stent, fistulation between the left IIA and ureter was identified.
