ABSTRACT This is a report on a rare case of acquired stenosis of the descending thoracic aorta resulting from an extreme posttuberculotic gibbous formation. The unusual anatomical relationship precluded conventional alleviation of the stenosis which was bridged ultimately with a graft producing a satisfactory functional result.

    ABSTRACT: The tetracarbonyl complexes cis-[Mo(CO)4{2-[3(5)-pyrazolyl]pyridine}] (1) and cis-[Mo(CO)4{ethyl[3-(2-pyridyl)-1-pyrazolyl]acetate}] (2) were obtained in excellent yields by microwave-assisted heating of a mixture of Mo(CO)6 and the organic ligand in toluene at 110°C for 30min. Complexes 1 and 2 are air stable, storable catalyst precursors for the epoxidation of olefins by tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP). In situ oxidative decarbonylation of 1 gives the tetranuclear compound [Mo4O12{2-[3(5)-pyrazolyl]pyridine}4] (3). Elemental analysis and infrared data indicate that the oxidation of 2 gives an octameric species with the molecular formula [Mo8O24{ethyl[3-(2-pyridyl)-1-pyrazolyl]acetate}4] (4). The molybdenum oxide/pyrazolylpyridine compounds 3 and 4, which can be readily prepared in very good yields from the parent carbonyls upon reaction with TBHP in n-decane/CH2Cl2 at room temperature, are active and stable heterogeneous catalysts for the epoxidation of cis-cyclooctene (Cy) by TBHP, giving 1,2-epoxycyclooctane as the only product. The highest activity is found for 4: ca. 90% epoxide yield after 6h reaction at 55°C. Further experiments confirmed that 2 is an effective catalyst precursor for (i) the epoxidation of Cy by aqueous TBHP, giving the corresponding epoxide as the only product, (ii) the selective epoxidation of R-(+)-limonene by TBHP (in n-decane), and (iii) the selective oxidation of methyl phenyl sulfide to the corresponding sulfoxide by aqueous TBHP or H2O2 at 35°C.

    ABSTRACT: Coarctation of the aorta is usually caused by a congenital narrowing of the aorta. This report describes two children who developed hypertension secondary to an acquired coarctation of the aorta. In one patient the coarctation was temporally related to umbilical artery catheterization and was associated with thrombosis and aneurysmal dilatation of the aorta. In the second patient, the coarctation occurred after surgical aortotomy during the removal of an intrathoracic neuroblastoma. Patients who have interventional damage to the aorta should be periodically examined for the appearance of a coarctation. Although an acquired coarctation of the aorta is an infrequent complication of invasive or surgical procedures, it should be identified since it represents a remediable cause of hypertension in children.
