BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The recent ESC guideline advises primary stent placement in superficial femoral arterial disease (SFAD). The aim of this study was to compare clinical outcomes of SFAD patients selected for stent placement with plain percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A single centre retrospective, observational analysis was performed of all consecutive patients undergoing endovascular treatment for SFAD from 2004 to 2015...

OBJECTIVES: The efficacy and need for secondary interventions for type II endoleaks following endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) remain controversial. This systematic review aimed at investigating the clinical outcomes of different type II endoleak treatments in patients with a persistent type II endoleak after EVAR. DATA SOURCES: Embase, Medline via Ovid, Web of Science Core Collection, the Cochrane CENTRAL, and Google Scholar. REVIEW METHODS: This systematic review was performed in accordance with the PRISMA Statement...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the value of diameter measurements for prediction of functional dialysis use (FDU) of arteriovenous fistulas (AVF). METHODS: Review of access operations and dialysis databases from January 1, 2007 to August 1, 2015. Follow up until July 1, 2016. FDU defined as six consecutive dialysis sessions with two needles on the AVF. Artery and vein diameters measured by portable ultrasound in access clinic. Contribution of diameter to predict FDU assessed with logistic regression...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: Chronic limb threatening ischaemia (CLTI) has a high risk of amputation and mortality. Increased knowledge on how sex, comorbidities, and medication influence these outcomes after revascularisation may help optimise results and patient selection. METHODS: This population based observational cohort study included all individuals revascularised for CLTI in Sweden during a five year period (10,617 patients in total). Data were retrieved and merged from mandatory national healthcare registries, and specifics on amputations were validated with individual medical records...

OBJECTIVES: Acute aortic dissection (AAD) is a severe clinical emergency with a high mortality, and is easily misdiagnosed in its early stage. This study aimed at discovering serum metabolomic markers with the potential to diagnose AAD and distinguish between two subtypes of AAD. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-five patients with AAD, including 20 with Stanford type A and 15 with Stanford type B were enrolled in this study, together with 20 healthy controls. All patients with AAD were admitted within 72 h of onset...

BACKGROUND: The Dutch Audit for Carotid Interventions (DACI) registers all patients undergoing interventions for carotid artery stenosis in the Netherlands. This study describes the design of the DACI and results of patients with a symptomatic stenosis undergoing carotid endarterectomy (CEA). It aimed to evaluate variation between hospitals in process of care and (adjusted) outcomes, as well as predictors of major stroke/death after CEA. METHODS: All patients with a symptomatic stenosis, who underwent CEA and were registered in the DACI between 2014 and 2016 were included in this cohort...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy of the less invasive hybrid zone 0 (Z0) total aortic arch repair (HAR, ascending repair + complete debranching + thoracic endovascular aortic repair [TEVAR]) without deep hypothermic circulatory arrest in management of DeBakey type I aortic dissection (IAD). The adverse outcome was defined as a single composite endpoint comprising peri-operative mortality, permanent neurological deficit, and renal failure necessitating haemodialysis at discharge...

OBJECTIVES: Vascular graft infections (VGIs) are severe and require prolonged adequate antimicrobial therapy. However, up to 45% of conventional cultures are negative. Sonication and genus specific PCRs for microbiological diagnosis of VGI was evaluated. METHODS: Samples were prospectively obtained from explanted vascular grafts in Bordeaux University Hospital. Conventional bacterial cultures with and without prior sonication of samples were performed. A genus specific PCR assay panel, targeting the most frequent bacteria involved in VGI (Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Enterococcus, and Enterobacteriaceae), was also applied to sonicate fluids...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of renal artery (RA) anatomy on the renal outcome of fenestrated-branched endografts (FB-EVAR) for thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAA). METHODS: Between 2010 and 2016, all patients undergoing FB-EVAR for TAAA were prospectively collected. Anatomical, procedural, and post-operative data were retrospectively analysed. RA anatomy was assessed on volume rendering, multi planar and centre line reconstructions by dedicated software (3Mensio)...

BACKGROUND: The benefit of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) or stenting (CAS) for symptomatic stenosis depends on the timing in relation to the presenting event. As the risk of recurrent events is highest in the early phase, guidelines recommend a short delay. The purpose of this national audit was to study the effects of more expedient carotid intervention on the risk of recurrent ischaemic events. METHODS: Data on all CEA and CAS for symptomatic stenosis, including both recurrent ischaemic events during the waiting time to carotid intervention and peri-operative 30 day complication rates, were obtained from the Swedish Vascular Registry between May 2008 and December 2015...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: The aim was to analyse the prevalence of computed tomographic (CT) morphological predictors and their influence on early chronic phase aortic diameter expansion in patients with uncomplicated acute Stanford type B aortic dissection (ATBAD). METHODS: This retrospective analysis reviewed the CT imaging of 140 patients admitted with uncomplicated ATBAD to two tertiary centres between March 2003 and April 2016. The prevalence of the following CT-morphological predictors was determined at baseline: primary entry tear (PET) diameter ≥ 10 mm, its location at the concavity of the aortic arch; maximum descending aortic diameter ≥ 40 mm; false lumen (FL) diameter ≥ 22 mm; partial FL thrombosis and a fusiform index (FI) of ≥0...
