A Contemporary Review of Cystic Adventitial Disease


A Contemporary Review of Cystic Adventitial Disease

Sharath C V Paravastu et al. Vasc Endovascular Surg.


Cystic adventitial disease (CAD) is a rare vascular disorder, predominantly seen in young healthy men with minimal cardiovascular risk factors. Cystic adventitial disease can affect both arteries and veins. Patients with arterial CAD present with sudden onset or rapidly progressing claudication symptoms, and those with venous CAD present with limb swelling or very rarely deep vein thrombosis. Diagnosis is confirmed with the aid of imaging techniques such as ultrasonography, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance scan. Surgical resection or evacuation of the lesion is usually the preferred approach, with only mixed results reported for percutaneous endovascular techniques.
