We report a case of fatal GI hemorrhage in a woman with a remote history of endovascular graft repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Postmortem examination included computed tomography (PMC...
Iatrogenic vascular injury is a potentially serious complication of surgical procedures.

The decedent, a 31-year-old woman, died suddenly on postoperative day 1 after a laparoscopic staging operation for an ovarian tu...

Non-surgery related AEFs (primary AEFs) may occur in association with atherosclerotic lesions, infections, malignancies, or, rarely, result from penetrating/eroding foreign bodies. Given its r...
