BACKGROUND: The effects of preoperative statin therapy (PST) on renal outcomes in patients with isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) are in controversial. This study aimed to assess the effects of preoperative statin use on postoperative renal outcomes in patients undergoing isolated CABG. METHODS: PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library were searched for studies published up to February 2017. Pooled odds ratio (OR) and its corresponding 95% confidence interval (95% CI) were calculated...

BACKGROUND: Off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCAB) helps reduce systemic inflammatory changes by maintaining native pulsatile flow. This analysis evaluates the outcomes of OPCAB at a Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) and evaluates the use of beating heart on-pump (BHOP) bypass grafting as an empiric therapy for high-risk patients. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of 756 patients who underwent coronary bypass grafting between 2004-2015 at a single VAMC...

BACKGROUND: We performed a meta-analysis to assess the presence of a day-of-week rhythmic variability of acute aortic rupture or dissection (AARD) onset. METHODS: Eligible studies were observational studies enrolling patients with AARD and reporting day-of-week variation of AARD. Study-specific estimates, i.e. day-of-week incidence of AARD, were combined using the random-effects model. Chronobiological analysis was performed by applying a partial Fourier series to pooled day-of-week incidence by using the inverse-variance weighted least-squares method...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate 12-month effectiveness of the endovascular treatment of femoropopliteal (FP) atherosclerotic lesions with the Ranger drug-coated balloon (DCB) in a real-world setting. METHODS: In this prospective, observational, multicenter trial (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02462005) 172 consecutive patients with 226 de novo, restenosed, or reoccluded native superficial femoral and/or popliteal artery lesions were treated with the Ranger paclitaxel- coated balloon angioplasty...

This paper will discuss the results from the most recent randomized trials and large registries for DCB's and atherectomy, and the drawbacks of these 2 therapeutic options. It will also discuss the results of combination therapy in complex femoropopliteal lesions. Several studies indicate that combining atherectomy and DCB yields better outcomes in complex calcified lesions, but the only randomized pilot study could not demonstrate a benefit of combination therapy in the mid-term follow-up. Larger, randomized studies are needed to define the role of atherectomy followed by DCB angioplasty further...

INTRODUCTION: Conventional therapies for transcatheter treatment of patients with infrainguinal obstructive disease remain compromised by high restenosis rates. Drug-coated balloons (DCB) offer a novel therapeutic alternative targeting the source of neo-intimal hyperplasia, without the need for a permanent endovascular scaffold and their inherent limitations. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: A systematic research of the medical databases (Pubmed) has been conducted for this up-to-date review...

Challenging iliac anatomy is a major limitation of endovascular repair for aortic aneurysms. Stenotic lesions, excessive calcification, tortuosity, and aneurysmal dilatation jeopardize technical success of device implantation and long-term success. This review addresses technical options in treating patients with stenotic or aneurysmatic iliac arteries. Endovascular solutions and hybrid procedures are included to demonstrate the wide scope of endovascular therapy that may be offered to patients with unfavorable iliac anatomy...

BACKGROUND: The effect of the insertion of guidewires and catheters on fusion accuracy of the three-dimensional (3D) image fusion technique during iliac percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) procedures has not yet been investigated. METHODS: Technical validation of the 3D fusion technique was evaluated in 11 patients with common and/or external iliac artery lesions. A preprocedural contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiogram (CE-MRA) was segmented and manually registered to a cone-beam computed tomography image created at the beginning of the procedure for each patient...

Despite the progress in endovascular treatment of patients with peripheral arterial disease, restenosis remains the major drawback, especially in patients with femoropopliteal lesions. To reduce neointimal proliferation and subsequent restenosis the use of antiproliferative drug eluting devices was implemented in the endovascular treatment of femoropopliteal disease. Aiming to use the favorable effects of these antiproliferative agents and to reduce foreign body exposure in affected arteries, drug coated balloons (DCB) have been developed...

BACKGROUND: During the past decade, endovascular treatment has become the treatment of choice for all types of aortoiliac occlusive disease, including TASC C and D lesions. Patency rates, however, are still below those of open surgical techniques. One propagated technique to improve patency rates is the use of covered stents. This review assessed the available literature on covered stents for aortoiliac occlusive disease. METHODS: An extensive search was performed of the MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane databases...

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is associated with a substantial cardiovascular risk and secondary prevention is recommended for all patients. In this report the literature on anticoagulant and antiplatelet drugs for patients with PAD in the femoro-popliteal segment is reviewed. PubMED/MEDLINE and Cochrane Database was searched for studies published between January 1966 and August 2017. Meta-analyses and randomized controlled trials describing outcome of anticoagulants or antiplatelet drugs for secondary prevention or following vascular interventions in patients with PAD were included...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary thromboendarterectomy (PTE) is the treatment of choice for eligible patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). However, access to CTEPH and PTE care is limited. There is a paucity of published data on PTE efficacy and outcomes from alternative, regional centers of excellence in CTEPH and PTE care in the United States, outside a single national and international referral center. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of patients undergoing PTE at our institution from June 2013 to December 2016 (42 months), and collected clinical, echocardiographic and hemodynamic data on our patients pre- and post-PTE (n=71)...

BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the accuracy of duplex ultrasonography (DUS)-based peak systolic velocity ratio (PSVR) and ipsilateral common femoral artery (CFA) velocity waveform analysis to identify a hemodynamically significant equivocal iliac artery stenosis (30%-75% lumen diameter reduction). Intra-arterial pressure measurements were used as a reference. METHODS: In a previously performed prospective study (NTR5085), 30 patients with 35 iliac artery stenoses underwent intra-arterial angiography...

BACKGROUND: Thrombolytic treatment has many potential indications in the era of modern vascular surgery. We aimed to analyze the contemporary experience in the catheter-directed, intraarterial thrombolysis in different clinical scenarios. METHODS: The available data of 121 patients with different types (acute, subacute, complications of vascular procedures) of lower limb ischemia treated by means of the intraarterial, catheter- directed thrombolysis between 11.2011 and 12...
