The treatment of endoleaks type II had to be adapted to the anatomy of each individual patient. The laser-assisted perforation of the prosthesis can be an easier method to reach the aneurysm sac directly than using transarterial or translumbar approaches.

BACKGROUND: We performed a meta-analysis to assess the presence of an annual rhythmic variability of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (RAAA) onset. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eligible studies were observational studies enrolling patients with RAAA and reporting monthly incidence of RAAA. Study-specific estimates, i. e. monthly incidence of RAAA, were combined using the random-effects model. Chronobiological analysis was performed by applying a partial Fourier series to pooled monthly incidence by using the weighted least-squares method...

Development of perigraft hygromas following repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms is extremely rare. A case is presented of a patient who was found to have a large hygroma despite two re-interventions on a previous EVAR.

BACKGROUND: Proper management of patients with thromboangiitis obliterans (TAO) or cannabis-associated arteritis (CAA), presenting with critical lower limb ischaemia (CLI) remains controversial, and data are limited. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with TAO or CAA presenting with CLI between 2011 and 2016 were retrospectively evaluated. Patients requiring primary intervention were excluded. Conservative treatment included: (a) weight-adjusted bemiparin plus six hours/day intravenous iloprost for 28 days, (b) aspirin (100 mg/day) plus cilostazol (100 mg twice/day) after discharge, and (c) strict recommendations/monitoring for smoking cessation...

The incidence of primary aorto-enteric fistula (PAEF) is low with only few case reports and case series published. Depending on the location of the PAEF, the perforation leads to upper or lower gastrointestinal haemorrhages. We conducted a MEDLINE search according to the PRISMA statement. Articles with publication dates from 2000 to 2016 were included and present an own case report. We considered all case reports and series reporting on PAEF and identified 85 individual patients from 32 case reports and five case series...

BACKGROUND: This study reports the mid-term prevalence and therapeutic consequences of anastomotic leaks after surgery for Stanford type A aortic dissections. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From July 2007 to July 2013, 93 patients survived surgery for acute type A dissections at our center and underwent a standardized follow-up. The pre-, peri-, and postoperative as well as the midterm results were collected prospectively. Follow-up computed tomography (CT) imaging was performed 7 days, 3, and 12 months after surgery, and yearly thereafter, to assess the presence or progression of anastomotic leaks at the aorto-prosthesis anastomotic sites...

BACKGROUND: Perioperative evaluation in peripheral artery disease (PAD) by common vascular diagnostic tools is limited by open wounds, medial calcinosis or an altered collateral supply of the foot. Indocyanine green fluorescent imaging (ICG-FI) has recently been introduced as an alternative tool, but so far a standardized quantitative assessment of tissue perfusion in vascular surgery has not been performed for this purpose. The aim of this feasibility study was to investigate a new software for quantitative assessment of tissue perfusion in patients with PAD using indocyanine green fluorescent imaging (ICG-FI) before and after peripheral bypass grafting...

Post-thrombotic syndrome is common after iliofemoral vein thrombosis. Conservative therapy, mainly limited to compression and anticoagulation therapy, might not be sufficient in controlling symptoms. Interventional recanalization of the chronically occluded iliac veins is an evolving method, promising rapid relief of symptoms. Here, we present two cases of complex interventions in one patient with preceding pelvic radiotherapy due to a plasmacytoma and in another patient in whom a cava wedge resection had been performed because of cystic echinococcosis in the liver...

BACKGROUND: In hyperlipidaemic state, increased levels of myeloperoxidase (MPO) and decreased paraoxonase-1 (PON1) activity have been reported; however, their relationships with other atherosclerotic biomarkers have not been completely clarified. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Serum concentrations of lipid and inflammatory parameters, MPO levels, and PON1 activities were investigated in 167 untreated hyperlipidaemic patients with and without vascular complications and in 32 healthy controls...

BACKGROUND: The OPG/RANKL/RANK (osteoprotegerin/receptor-activator of nuclear factor κB ligand/receptor-activator of nuclear factor κB) axis has been recently linked to the development of atherosclerosis and plaque destabilization. We have investigated whether polymorphism rs2073618 of the OPG gene is associated with subclinical markers of carotid atherosclerosis in subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). PATIENTS AND METHODS: 595 subjects with T2DM were enrolled in the cross-sectional study...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of peripheral artery disease (PAD) is increasing worldwide. Revascularization procedures constitute a cornerstone of the therapy in PAD, not only in critical limb ischaemia but increasingly also in patients with intermittent claudication. The German Society of Angiology - Society for Vascular Medicine is establishing a nationwide, prospective, multicentre registry to address the lack of contemporary real life data regarding current practice of medical and interventional care in vascular patients and its subsequent long-term outcome...

BACKGROUND: Despite ongoing research concerning comorbidities and clinical presentation of peripheral arterial disease (PAD), the issue of gender associated differences in treatment is far from being settled. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a prospective, non-randomized multicentre study design. All patients suffering from intermittent claudication (IC) or critical limb ischaemia (CLI) were included. RESULTS: A total of 2,798 procedures for symptomatic PAD in the infrainguinal region were recorded, with 1,696 (61...

BACKGROUND: Biomarkers reflecting diverse pathophysiological pathways may play an important role in the pathogenesis of abdominal aortic aneurysm (aortic diameter ≥30 mm, AAA), levels of many biomarkers are elevated and correlated to aortic diameter among 65-year-old men undergoing ultrasound (US) screening for AAA. PROBANDS AND METHODS: To evaluate potential relationships between biomarkers and aortic dilatation after long-term follow-up, levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), proneurotensin (PNT), copeptin (CPT), lipoprotein-associated phospholipase 2 (Lp-PLA2), cystatin C (Cyst C), midregional proatrial natriuretic peptide (MR-proANP), and midregional proadrenomedullin (MR-proADM) were measured in 117 subjects (114 [97 %] men) aged 47-49 in a prospective population-based cohort study, and related to aortic diameter at US examination of the aorta after 14-19 years of follow-up...

Nowadays noninvasive vascular imaging has an important role in the diagnostic work-up of the large vessel vasculitides (LVV), most importantly giant cell arteritis (GCA) and Takayasu arteritis. Among the imaging modalities available, ultrasound (US) has several important advantages, including low costs, rapid and repetitive availability without exposure to radiation, and high spatial resolution for assessment of large and medium-sized arteries. Therefore, US can be regarded the first line imaging method in suspected LVV...

BACKGROUND: Carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), an ultrasonographic marker of cardiovascular risk, is increasingly used in adults and children. The choice of specific images used to quantify CIMT from a cine sequence is often based on image quality rather than on a consistent point in the cardiac cycle. This methodological study quantified the imprecision that may be introduced by variation of CIMT during the cardiac cycle. PROBANDS AND METHODS: Data from four-year-olds, 11 to 12-year-olds, and adults (n=30 each age group) were selected retrospectively from two population-derived studies...
