OBJECTIVES: The aim was to evaluate the early results of fenestrated thoracic endovascular aortic repair (fTEVAR) using physician modified stent grafts (PMSGs) to revascularise aortic branches for acute type B aortic dissection (ABAD) with unfavourable proximal landing zone. METHODS: Twenty consecutive patients who underwent fenestrated TEVAR using PMSGs between November 2015 and December 2016 were retrospectively reviewed. Pre-, intra-, and post-operative clinical data were recorded...

INTRODUCTION: Treatment of an infected aortic prosthesis is difficult and the ideal graft material is subject to debate. REPORT: A case of infected aortic prosthesis treated using bilateral thrombosed superficial femoral veins (SFVs) is presented. Bilateral reversed SFVs were cut longitudinally at both proximal ends about 3-4 cm and were sutured side by side. The operating time was 5 h. No sign of recurrent infection was observed when the patient suffered a myocardial infarction and died 6 months post-operatively...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to show the intention to treat results of treatment for spontaneous isolated superior mesenteric artery dissection (SISMAD) without anticoagulation or antiplatelet agents and the follow-up results of SISMAD according to the configuration on computed tomography (CT) scans. DESIGN: Retrospective, observational single centre study METHODS: All cases of SISMAD were enrolled consecutively from 2006 onwards. There were 25 symptomatic and four asymptomatic patients in whom SISMAD was found incidentally...

INTRODUCTION: Cardiovascular events are common in people with aortic aneurysms. Arterial calcification is a recognised predictor of cardiovascular outcomes in coronary artery disease. Whether calcification within abdominal and thoracic aneurysm walls is correlated with poor cardiovascular outcomes is not known. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Calcium scores were derived from computed tomography (CT) scans of consecutive patients with either infrarenal (AAA) or descending thoracic aneurysms (TAA) using the modified Agatston score...

INTRODUCTION: Late open surgical conversion following endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) may occur more frequently after performing EVAR in anatomy outside the instructions for use (IFU). This study reviews predictors and outcomes of late open surgical conversion for failed EVAR. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study reviewed all EVARs performed at the Ottawa Hospital between January 1999 and May 2015. Open surgical conversions >1 month post EVAR were identified...

OBJECTIVE: Endothelial cells (ECs) play an important role in neovascularisation, but are too limited in number for adequate therapeutic applications. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have the potential to differentiate into endothelial lineage cells, which makes them attractive candidates for therapeutic angiogenesis. The aim of this study was to investigate efficient differentiation of MSCs into ECs by inducing medium in vitro. METHODS: MSCs were isolated from bone marrow by density gradient centrifugation...

OBJECTIVES: Loss of muscle mass has been associated with poor survival in several surgical patient populations, including those with an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). We wanted to replicate these findings and assesse the association between psoas muscle area (PMA) and survival in patients with an asymptomatic AAA. METHODS: Patients with an asymptomatic infrarenal AAA who underwent computed tomography (CT) scanning between January 1, 2007, and December 31, 2013, were included in this single-centre retrospective cohort study...

BACKGROUND: System factors contributing to preventable harm in vascular patients have not been previously reported in detail. The aim of this exploratory mixed-methods study was to describe vascular surgeons' perceptions of factors contributing to adverse events (AEs) in arterial surgery. A secondary aim was to report recommendations to improve patient safety. METHODS: Vascular consultants/registrars working in the British National Health Service were questioned about the causes of preventable AEs through survey and semi-structured interview (response rates 77% and 83%, respectively)...

Giovanni Mosti, Hugo Partsch
INTRODUCTION: Bandage application does not exert consistent compression pressure, leading to extremely variable compression when applied to patients. A new elastic bandage can exert a predefined pressure independently of healthcare providers and the size of the wrapped limb. The bandage system includes a series of non-stretchable patches that when applied to the bandage make it stiff. The aim of this work was to assess, in an experimental setting, the venous ejection fraction (EF) from the lower leg and the tolerability of this new bandage in a group of patients affected by superficial venous incompetence...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effectiveness of graduated elastic compression stockings (GECS) below the knee in improving symptoms in patients with varicose veins in the absence of high quality evidence. METHODS: This was a randomised double blind placebo controlled trial. Thirty patients with no experience of elastic stockings, presenting with primary varicose veins causing calf pain or aching were randomised to a GECS (18-21 mmHg at the ankle level, n=15) or a placebo stocking (0 mmHg, n=15)...

OBJECTIVES: Ninety-five per cent of those operated on for popliteal artery aneurysm (PA) are men. Thus, PAs in women are difficult to investigate. The aim was to study the disease in women. METHODS: Women treated for PA in 1987-2012, prospectively registered in the Swedish vascular registry, Swedvasc, supplemented by case records, were compared with the larger male cohort. Survival was determined through cross linkage with the National Population Registry. RESULTS: 1509 patients (men and women), 1872 legs, were identified; of these 74 patients (4...
