Internal sealing of acute aortic bleeding with a catheter-delivered liquid to solid embolic agent (Onyx)

, : Internal sealing of acute aortic bleeding with a catheter-delivered liquid to solid embolic agent (Onyx). Vascular 18(2): 106-110

Occasionally, standard stent grafts are not usable in emergency aortic bleeding, and custom-made stent grafts are not practical as a replacement. We describe a novel technique for the repair of such aneurysms by using the catheter-delivered liquid to solid embolic agent Onyx (Micro Therapeutics Inc., Irvine, CA). Two patients with ruptured aortic aneurysm, where endovascular or open repair was not considered as feasible, were treated by internal sealing of the aneurysm with Onyx, resulting in stoppage of bleeding and further expansion of the aneurysm-the plugging and sealing technique.

IgD was detected in 84% of cord sera at term by an inhibition-of-hemagglutination test, in contrast to low incidences reported earlier. Cord blood IgD and maternal serum IgD values were unrelated to each other, consistent with a fetal origin of th...
