OBJECTIVES: The aim was to determine 30-day outcomes in patients with concurrent carotid and cardiac disease who underwent carotid artery stenting (CAS) followed by coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). METHODS: This was a systematic review with searches of PubMed/Medline, Embase, and Cochrane databases. "Same-day" procedures involved CAS + CABG being performed on the same day, and "staged" interventions involved at least 1 day's delay between undergoing CAS and then CABG...

OBJECTIVE: Thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) repair is a complex procedure performed in patients at high cardiovascular risk. High volume intra-operative bleeding is often recorded, and the amount of intra-operative blood product transfusion is associated with relevant morbidity and mortality. The aim of the study was to identify pre-operative predictors of intra-operative large volume blood transfusions (LVBT) to stratify patients pre-operatively. METHODS: This was a retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data of all patients who underwent open TAAA surgery at San Raffaele Scientific Institute from January 2009 to December 2015...

OBJECTIVE: The vertebral tortuosity index (VTI) predicts increased risk of acute aortic events in patients with known genetic aortopathies. This study describes the VTI in a cohort of patients with non-connective tissue disorder-related large aneurysms. METHODS: Hospital imaging records from July 2012 to March 2016 were interrogated to identify patients with aneurysmal disease who had undergone computed tomographic angiography that included imaging of vertebral arteries...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: Neointimal hyperplasia (NIH) remains one of the leading causes of graft failure after vascular anastomoses. Cytotoxic drugs, such as rapamycin and tacrolimus, have been shown to inhibit the development of NIH. In this study, the aim was to test the impact of a sustained releasing tacrolimus-chitosan-eluting suture on the development of NIH in a rat model. METHODS: After tacrolimus-chitosan coating of a 7/0 polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) Trofilen(®) suture, the tacrolimus concentration on the coated suture and in vitro release trials were performed spectrophotometrically...

OBJECTIVES: Although commonly used to measure health related quality of life in patients with lower limb ischaemia, the measurement properties of the VascuQol and its assumed underlying health dimensions have not been studied in depth. The objective of this study was therefore to evaluate aspects of reliability and validity of the Dutch version of the VascuQol in patients with intermittent claudication (IC) and critical limb ischaemia (CLI). METHODS: Two datasets containing 195 patients with IC and 150 patients with CLI were used...

INTRODUCTION: Blood pressure (BP) regulation is important in patients with carotid artery atherosclerotic disease. Concomitant subclavian artery stenosis (SAS) might lead to an underestimation of the true systemic BP in the monitoring of these patients. This study aimed to assess the prevalence of the inter-arm BP difference in patients undergoing carotid intervention and its association with ipsilateral significant subclavian stenosis and clinical outcome. METHODS: Bilateral BP measurements and vascular imaging (CTA and MRA) of both subclavian arteries and the innominate artery were assessed in 182 symptomatic patients with carotid artery stenosis undergoing revascularisation in the International Carotid Stenting Study (ICSS)...

BACKGROUND: Critical limb ischaemia (CLI) is the end stage of peripheral artery disease (PAD) and is associated with high amputation and mortality rates and poor quality of life. For CLI patients with no revascularisation options, venous arterialisation could be a last resort for limb salvage. OBJECTIVE: To review the literature on the clinical effectiveness of venous arterialisation for lower limb salvage in CLI patients with no revascularisation options. METHOD: Different databases were searched for papers published between January 1966 and January 2016...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the dynamics of the iliac attachment zone after EVAR, and the association with clinical events. METHODS: A tertiary institution's prospective EVAR database was searched to identify common iliac arteries at risk. Internally validated measurements were made, using centre lumen line reconstructions. Iliac dilatation and endograft limb retraction were the main endpoints. Associations between dilatation, retraction, oversizing, and distal seal length were investigated...

OBJECTIVES: Reference values of aortic deformation during the cardiac cycle can be valuable for the pre-operative planning of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) and for facilitating computational fluid dynamics. This study aimed to quantify normal aortic extensibility (longitudinal extension) and distensibility (radial expansion), as well as pulsatile strain, in a group of 10 (>60 years) individuals with abdominal or thoracic aortic aneurysms. METHODS: ECG gated CT images of the thoracic aorta were reconstructed into virtual 3D models of aortic geometry...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: Mechanochemical endovenous ablation (MOCA) has been developed as a tumescentless technique to ablate saphenous veins and to avoid heat induced complications and post-procedural pain. The mechanism of action of MOCA is poorly understood. The present experiments were conducted to determine the effect of MOCA on vein wall injury and sclerosis in an animal model. METHODS: A total of 36 lateral saphenous veins (LSVs) were treated in 18 goats according to the human protocol...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this work was to study physiological aortic arch three-dimensional displacement using non-rigid registration methods and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ten healthy volunteers underwent thoracic MRI. Prospective cardiac gating was performed with a 3D turbo field echo sequence to obtain end-systolic and end-diastolic MR images. The rigid and elastic behavior between these two cardiac phases was detected and compared using either an affine or an elastic registration method...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: The objective was to analyze the acute effects of a single bout of arm cranking exercise on affective and cardiovascular parameters in patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD). METHODS: This was a prospective, controlled, crossover study. Eleven men with symptomatic PAD underwent two experimental sessions in a random order: control or arm crank exercise (15 × 2 minutes bouts of arm crank exercise interrupted by 2 minutes rest intervals)...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to investigate the features, treatments, and prognosis of patients with symptomatic and asymptomatic isolated SMA dissection. METHODS: Data from 35 consecutive patients in whom isolated SMA dissection was diagnosed on computed tomography angiography (CTA) between 2004 and 2015 at two general hospitals in Japan, were collected retrospectively. Nineteen symptomatic patients were compared, and 16 asymptomatic patients with incidentally revealed SMA dissection were also compared...

BACKGROUND: The widespread use of central venous catheters, ports, pacemakers, and defibrillators has increased the incidence of benign superior vena cava syndrome (SVCS). This study aimed at reviewing the results of open and endovascular treatment of SVCS. METHOD: Medical literature databases were searched for relevant studies. Studies with more than five adult patients, reporting separate results for the SVC were included. Nine studies reported the results of endovascular treatment of SVCS including 136 patients followed up for a mean of 11-48 months...
