BACKGROUND: Prolonged immobility in the sitting position in the elderly is known to produce venous stasis with leg edema and possible skin changes. METHODS: The authors have tested a treatment protocol in 30 patients to quantify the reduction of volume caused by an adjustable compression Velcro® wrap (Circaid Juxtalite®) after 15 days and to compare its effect on the leg volume for the next 15 days with 15-20 mmHg compression stockings (CS). RESULTS: The authors noted a volume decrease between D0 and D15 by 10,8 % (52 legs) under Circaid Juxtalite®...

BACKGROUND: Advanced biomechanical models can provide additional information concerning rupture risk in abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). Here we evaluated the predictive value of finite element analysis (FEA) to assess AAA rupture risk. METHODS: In a case-control study, we compared FEA parameters in a group of symptomatic AAA (sAAA) patients, considered as a high risk of rupture group, with FEA parameters in asymptomatic AAA patients (aAAA). RESULTS: We included 15 sAAA and 28 aAAA patients matched for age- and maximum diameter diagnosed with infrarenal non-ruptured AAA at our centre between 2009 and 2013...

INTRODUCTION: To review the association between mental health and intermittent claudication (IC) perception, reporting and treatment in subjects with peripheral artery disease (PAD). EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: Literature searches of experimental and observational studies published up until 1.02.2016 were conducted using the following electronic databases: Medline/PubMed and Embase. The selection criteria for the studies included a population of patients diagnosed with peripheral artery disease who reported symptoms of intermittent claudication and were assessed for any psychopathological states (depression, anxiety, mood and personality disorders), which in turn were analysed with regard to the following: IC severity, symptom perception and reporting, patients' quality of life, treatment compliance and its effectiveness...

INTRODUCTION: Common iliac aneurysms are present in up to 40% of abdominal aortic aneurysms and frequently impair distal landing zones for endovascular aneurysm repair. Several techniques have been developed in order to overcome these issues, with different applications and conflicting results. Although long-term outcomes of hypogastric exclusion are favorable, the risks of pelvic ischemia and morbidity rates are high. We aim to review current hypogastric preservation strategies used in the endovascular treatment of aortoiliac aneurysms...

BACKGROUND: Endovascular treatment of symptomatic peripheral artery disease has gained widespread acceptance. The efficacy and safety of drug coated balloon angioplasty in the setting of critical limb ischemia in comparison to conventional surgery has not been demonstrated. We have compared our results with DCB angioplasty to conventional bypass surgery in patients with critical limb ischemia. METHODS: A total of 187 patients with CLI treated over a 6-year period between 2006 and 2012 by a single operative team constituted the study population...

BACKGROUND: The largest population that suffers from cardiovascular events are subjects at moderate cardiovascular risk. However, no effective and safe preventive treatment is available for this population. We investigated whether their arterial wall phenotype could be turned to a lower risk direction by low-dose fluvastatin/valsartan combination (low-flu/val). METHODS: Twenty males at moderate cardiovascular risk (as classified by SCORE) were blindly randomised into the intervention group (n=10, low-flu/val: 10 mg/20mg) or control group (n=10, placebo)...

Thrombosis is a consequence of disbalance between the procoagulant and fibrinolytic activity of blood and is frequently associated with chronic sequelae, which are the consequence of chronic occlusion of affected veins. Treatment of venous thrombosis should not be oriented in the prevention of thrombus progression and associated thromboembolic events, but also in stimulation of thrombolysis and recanalization of occluded veins, which are one of the most important preventive mechanisms of late sequelae, including post-thrombotic syndrome...

INTRODUCTION: Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) became the preferred modality for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair. However, long term survival benefit may sometimes be questionable as many patients would die from other causes rather than aneurysm rupture. It is paramount to identify critical risk factors for late mortality after EVAR to understand its real benefit. The aim of this review is to identify most clinically relevant determinants of late mortality after elective EVAR...

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a major source of morbidity and mortality among patients diagnosed with cancer. In addition to an increased risk of VTE, patients with cancer are at higher risk of bleeding while receiving therapeutic anticoagulation. Aggressive and targeted thromboprophylaxis is a crucial practice to avoid the dreaded complications of VTE. Risk assessment models (RAM) are tools developed to identify high-risk patients in whom thromboprophylaxis is beneficial. This review describes the most validated VTE RAMs in patients with cancer...

BACKGROUND: Carotid artery plaque is associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). Besides the presence of plaque, plaque characteristics is also related to the severity of CAD. So the characteristic difference of carotid plaque may affect this assessment role. However, it is unclear whether the maximum carotid plaque area can reflect the extents and severity of CAD. METHODS: We enrolled 388 consecutive CAD patients and 45 controls, and 204 patients were studied after excluding 184 patients without carotid plaque or coronary angiogram...

BACKGROUND: Prolonged immobility in the sitting position in the elderly is known to produce venous stasis with leg edema and possible skin changes. Compression stockings are often applied for this clinical problem. There is few experienced nursing staff available to supervise the difficult task of stocking application. METHODS: The authors have researched other effective and simple devices that may be suitable alternatives. This article reports the results of three different devices to reduce leg edema, as measured by reduction in leg volume: an electro-stimulation device, an adjustable compression Velcro® wrap and a short stretch bandage, each tested over a two-hour period...

BACKGROUND: To compare the results of computer estimation of atherosclerotic plaque with biochemical data and ascertain any relationship with the occurrence of stroke. METHODS: The study involved 20 atherosclerotic plaques causing 70-99% stenosis of internal carotid arteries (ICA). Ultrasonographic examination (USG) images of plaques were analyzed using a computer program. A histogram was obtained for each plaque and a gray scale median (GSM) was determined for each histogram in order to measure the echogenicity of an examined plaque...

BACKGROUND: Native arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is considered the gold standard of vascular access for hemodialysis due to its longer survival, fewer complications, lower mortality and costs. Patency is important for effective dialysis treatment and this remains a challenge in nephrology. There are no well-defined prognostic factors for early and long-term AVF survival. The aim of this study was to evaluate comorbidity, analytical and ultrasound (US) variables as prognostic factors for early failure and AVF patency...
