OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: The objective was to evaluate the feasibility and mid-term outcomes of endoconduits (EC) with the "pave and crack" technique during endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of varying complexity. METHODS: This was a retrospective study. All patients undergoing EC between July 2009 and October 2015 were included. The primary endpoint was technical success of the EC defined as the ability to successfully deliver the aortic stent graft through the EC without rupture, dissection, or thrombosis of the iliac or femoral arteries, and with the absence of haemodynamically significant blood loss related to the EC...

OBJECTIVES: Atherosclerosis is a hallmark of cardiovascular disease. Shear stress on endothelial cells has been linked to atherogenesis and to fibrous cap thinning and rupture. Pericytes reside in the sub-endothelial space of vessels and have vasoprotective effects. They are subjected to shear stress when endothelial cell integrity is disrupted. The aim was to investigate the susceptibility and response of pericytes to shear stress. METHODS: Endothelial cells and pericytes were seeded in two dimensional monocultures and co-cultures, and in a novel three dimensional co-culture system and were subjected to no, low and high shear stress (0, 10, 30 dyne/cm(2)) for 48 h...

OBJECTIVES: The prognosis of patients with intramural haematoma (IMH) of the aorta beyond the first year after diagnosis remains largely unknown. In particular, patients that do not undergo interventions are lost to follow-up. The aim was to assess medium-term outcome in IMH patients. METHODS: Post hoc analysis of 63 consecutive patients presenting with IMH between 1999 and 2013 was performed. Patients meeting imaging criteria at the first presentation were included even if follow-up imaging showed evidence of intimal disruption or false lumen flow...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether a fixed heparin dose results in adequate heparinisation levels and consequent inhibition of haemostatic activation in all patients. METHODS: This prospective clinical pilot study included 24 patients undergoing arterial vascular surgery. Individual heparin responsiveness was assessed using the Heparin Dose Response (HDR) test, while the activated clotting time (ACT) and heparin concentration were measured to monitor the peri-procedural degree of anticoagulation...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: The objective was to assess the mid-term results of pharmacomechanical catheter-directed thrombolysis (PCDT) for symptomatic acute and subacute inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis; the risk factors of early thrombosis recurrence and iliocaval patency were also evaluated. METHODS: From January 2010 to December 2015, 54 patients (33 men; mean age 47.1 years) with symptomatic acute and subacute IVC thrombosis were treated with PCDT. Primary technical success (clot lysis ≥ 50% after PCDT), stent-assisted technical success (residual stenosis < 30% after stenting), clinical success (freedom from thrombosis recurrence within 30 days), complications, frequency of post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS; Villalta score ≥ 5), and iliocaval patency were recorded at follow-up evaluation...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies comparing endografts with suprarenal and infrarenal fixation for endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) have found conflicting results and did not account for differences in patient selection. This study aims to evaluate the differences in outcomes among surgeons who routinely use either suprarenal or infrarenal fixation, as well as all surgeons in the Vascular Study Group of New England (VSGNE). METHODS: All patients undergoing EVAR in the VSGNE from 2003 to 2014 were identified...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: Deep venous obstruction is relatively prevalent in patients with chronic venous disease. Endovascular treatments and hybrid interventions can be used to relieve venous outflow obstructions. This paper assesses mid-term clinical outcomes and patency rates in a large cohort after percutaneous and hybrid interventions. METHODS: This was a prospectively analysed cohort study. Patients with symptomatic deep venous obstruction who presented at a tertiary referral hospital were divided into three groups: patients who underwent percutaneous stenting for non-thrombotic iliac vein compression syndrome (IVCS group); patients with post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) treated by percutaneous stent placement (P-PTS group); and PTS patients with obstruction involving the veins below the saphenofemoral junction in which a hybrid procedure was performed, combining stenting with open surgical disobliteration (H-PTS group)...

OBJECTIVE: Compliance with regular imaging follow-up after endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) is inconsistent, and evidence of benefit from scheduled long-term surveillance is limited. This study sought to characterize the association between post-EVAR imaging frequency and long-term survival. METHODS: Using administrative health databases for the province of Ontario, Canada, a cohort of patients was identified who underwent EVAR between 2004 and 2014. Minimum appropriate imaging follow-up (MAIFU) was defined as a CT scan or ultrasound of the abdomen within 90 days of EVAR as well as every 15 months thereafter...

OBJECTIVES: Rupture risk in abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) is assessed using AAA diameter; yet 10% of ruptures occur in a small aneurysm. This underlines the inadequacy of diameter as a standalone parameter. In this prospective follow-up study, ultrasound determined aneurysm diameter was compared with aneurysm volume determined by three dimensional ultrasound (3D-US) in a group of 179 AAAs. DESIGN: This was a prospective cohort study with repeated diameter and volume measurements by 3D-US...
