    Mycotic descending thoracic aneurysm with aortobronchial fistula is a rare condition which is associated with high mortality. Treatment in the era of minimally invasive procedure can often be controversial. The risk of graft infection should be considered as well as the unknown long term behavior of the endovascular stent. Here, we describe our initial experience of performing emergency thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair in an unstable patient presenting with haemoptysis.

    This is a case report of a pseudoaneurysm due to Salmonella aortitis in a 52 year old man. The condition is rare and represents one of the few cases reported in Malaysia. The diagnosis was made preoperatively by ultrasonography and computed tomography. This was confirmed at surgery where there was a 3 cm defect at the posterior wall of the aorta at L2/3 level. The aneurysmal sac extended to the retrocrural space at the 12th vertebra level cranially on the right side to the lower border of the 3rd lumbar vertebra caudally. It had a smooth fibrous wall and contained a mixture of organised haematoma and pus. At operation the aneurysm was excised, the affected region was carefully debrided and the aorta grafted with an in-situ in-lay graft. Antibiotic therapy was instituted until clinical response was evident, leukocytosis was reduced and blood culture was negative. However 4 months after surgery, the patient returned in irreversible shock and succumbed to disseminated intravascular coagulation secondary to massive upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage from an aortoduodenal fistula.

    The use of an autologous ipsilateral internal iliac artery to restore circulation after excision of a ruptured femoral aneurysm in a patient addicted to drugs is described. Autogenous vein graft was not available. The advantages of using the internal iliac artery in this situation are discussed. The use of internal iliac artery graft in this situation has not been previously described in the literature.

    Bacterial arteritis is relatively uncommon and management of this condition, which carries high morbidity and mortality, is difficult and time-consuming. Common organisms implicated include Salmonella and Staphylococcus. Arteritis as a result of infection by Burkholderia pseudomallei (formerly Pseudomonas pseudomallei) has been rarely reported in the English literature. This organism, which is endemic in our part of the world, is well known to cause a wide spectrum of septic conditions. A review of cases managed at Hospital Kuala Lumpur revealed that bacterial arteritis due to melioidosis is not such a rare entity. We share our experience in the management of this condition using three cases as examples.

    This is a study of 54 intravenous drug user's (IVDUs) with infected pseudoaneurysms undergoing ligation and debridement at the Vascular Unit, Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) from February 1993 to February 1996. The median age was 37 years with a male preponderance (53:1). Chinese form the largest ethnic group with 57.4% of the cases. Staphylococcus aureus was the most common organism cultured. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive cases numbered 21 (38.9%). Four of the patients had to have an above-knee amputation after surgery. Simple ligation and debridement of all necrotic tissue is an acceptable mode of therapy in these patients with low amputation rates.
