OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: To develop a procedure specific global rating scale for assessment of operator competence in endovascular aortic repair (EVAR). METHODS: A Delphi approach was used to achieve expert consensus. A panel of 32 international experts (median 300 EVAR procedures, range 200-3000) from vascular surgery (n = 21) and radiology (n = 11) was established. The first Delphi round was based on a review of endovascular skills assessment papers, stent graft instructions for use, and structured interviews...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: A previous budget impact analysis regarding a supervised exercise therapy (SET) first treatment strategy (stepped care model [SCM]) for Dutch patients with intermittent claudication (IC) showed a low referral rate in 2009, despite solid evidence of the effectiveness of SET programs. Recently, several campaigns have stimulated stakeholders in the field to adopt a SET first strategy in patients with IC. The aim of the present study was to reassess SCM adherence after a 2 year period...

OBJECTIVES: The aim was review the components and effects of patient education interventions to improve physical activity (PA) in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and intermittent claudication (IC), and patients' experiences of these interventions. DATA SOURCES: CINAHL, Cochrane Library, Ovid, ProQuest, AMED, MEDLINE, PsycINFO, Web of Science Core Collection, and PEDRO, and Trial registers and directory of Open Access repository websites and Web of science conference proceedings were searched...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: Epidemiological screening studies have demonstrated that the prevalence of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) of Asian origin appears to be low and so increases uncertainty about the cost effectiveness of screening for AAAs in Chinese people. Some studies have demonstrated a higher prevalence of AAA in patients with atherosclerotic risk factors. The purpose of the study was to determine the prevalence of AAA and to explore the high risk group of AAA in Chinese patients with atherosclerotic risk factors...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: To investigate the frequency of initial misdiagnosis and the clinical consequences of an initial misdiagnosis of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (rAAA). METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study. Data from the Swedish National Registry for Vascular Surgery (Swedvasc) and medical charts were extracted for patients treated for rAAA in the West of Sweden in the period 2008-14. Initially misdiagnosed patients were compared with correctly diagnosed patients...

BACKGROUND: The reported 54 mm median intervention diameter for endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) in the Vascular Quality Initiative and European data from the Pharmaceutical Aneurysm Stabilisation Trial (PHAST) implies that in real life the majority of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repairs occur at diameters smaller than the consensus intervention threshold of 55 mm. This study explores the potential consequences of this practice. METHODS: The differences between real life AAA repair and consensus based intervention threshold were explored in reported data from vascular quality initiatives and PHAST...

OBJECTIVE: A systems approach to patient safety proposes that a wide range of factors contribute to surgical outcome, yet the impact of team, work environment, and organisational factors, is not fully understood in arterial surgery. The aim of this systematic review is to summarize and discuss what is already known about the impact of system factors on quality and safety in arterial surgery. DATA SOURCES: A systematic review of original research papers in English using MEDLINE, Embase, PsycINFO, and Cochrane databases, was performed according to PRISMA guidelines...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: Absence of an adequate iliac seal rarely represents an absolute contraindication to endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. Iliac branch devices (IBD) are increasingly used in patients with extensive aorto-iliac aneurysmal disease, but few data are available on the long-term results of these procedures. METHODS: Between 2006 and 2016, 157 consecutive IBD procedures performed at a single centre were entered into a prospective database...

OBJECTIVES: The aim was to compare outcomes of self expanding PTFE covered stents (CSs) with bare metal stents (BMSs) in the treatment of iliac artery occlusions (IAOs). METHODS: Between January 2009 and December 2015, 128 iliac arteries were stented for IAO. A CS was implanted in 78 iliac arteries (61%) and a BMS in 50 (49%). After propensity score matching, 94 limbs were selected and underwent stenting (47 for each group). Thirty day outcomes and midterm patency were compared; follow-up results were analysed with Kaplan-Meier curves...

OBJECTIVES: Conventional anatomical descriptions of the cervical internal carotid artery (ICA) report that no branches arise from this segment. However reports of ICA branches exist. The study aim was to determine the prevalence of anomalous branches of the ICA using colour duplex ultrasound (CDU). METHODS: Four hundred consecutive patients (800 carotid vessels) referred to a tertiary hospital vascular laboratory for investigation of carotid disease were included...
