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...

BACKGROUND: Continuous effort is still provided in designing optimal artificial heart valves with better hemodynamic function and reduced thromboembolic potential. The question is do we have moved forward toward this goal or not. METHODS: A prospective, randomized comparative study was done on 360 patients scheduled for elective mitral valve replacement. Patients were grouped into On-X group (n=180) who received On-X mechanical valve and SJM (n=180) who received St Jude mechanical valve...

BACKGROUND: The role of the intraluminal thrombus (ILT) in abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) growth remains incompletely understood. MRI is superior to other methods in depicting the morphology of the ILT. This study brings preliminary, but novel information on the presence and morphological characteristics of the ILT and AAA growth rates in a screening cohort. METHODS: Cohort study with 46 patients from the Viborg Vascular trial(1). All underwent one non- contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at the end of follow-up...

BACKGROUND: It is imperative to gain safe access into the occluded targeted vessel and begin treating acute extremity limb ischemia. Often the origin of the targeted native artery or bypass graft will have a flush occlusion making it difficult to cannulate. This paper looks at the novel use of portable ultrasound to evaluate the origin of the artery or bypass graft to help facilitate the start of thrombolysis. METHODS: We reviewed our last 2 years of acute limb ischemia in our patients with high risk factors and co-morbidities...

BACKGROUND: This study was conducted to examine the impact of CPB times on post-operative outcomes. We sought to determine the optimum cut-offs of CPB per graft time and cumulative CPB time and their predictive accuracy for mortality in conjunction with EuroSCORE II. METHODS: The de-identified data of 1,960 patients who had undergone isolated on-pump CABG from 2009 to 2014 were analyzed. The risk strata of CPB/graft and cumulative CPB times, identified with a decision tree, were added into an augmented model for predicting short- and intermediate-term post-operative clinical events...

BACKGROUND: Critical limb ischemia (CLI) may be the consequence of chronic occluded popliteal artery aneurysm (PAA). Open repair (OR) offers better 5-year results than endovascular treatment, but in patients with severe comorbidities or unfit to OR, endovascular repair (ER) could represent a valid treatment option. The purpose of this retrospective study was to review our experience of endovascular popliteal aneurism repair (EVPAR) in patients with chronic occluded PAA. METHODS: The endpoints assessed were: 1- and 3-year primary and secondary patency rates, technical success, 30-day major adverse events, major amputation free-survival, re-intervention and survival rates...

Acceptance of endovascular technology has followed a predictable pattern in the treatment of aortic aneurysm disease. Initially, endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) was used to treat infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) only in patients deemed medically unsuitable for open surgical repair (OSR). With improvement in device design, increased operative experience and favorable mortality benefits in randomized control trials, EVAR is now the preferred method for treatment of AAA worldwide. As the results with OSR are even worse as one ascends the aorta into the visceral segment and above, it stands to reason that EVAR technology to accommodate the aortic branches should have a similar adoption in treatment of proximal AAA and thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) disease...
