BACKGROUND: Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) includes variety of morphologies with changing properties. Growth rate is one of the most important factors directly linked to the risk of rupture. Intraluminal thrombus (ILT) covering aortic wall is found in majority of AAAs. Yet, its role in biomechanical processes in AAA remains unclear. From one point of view ILT can serve as protective factor in reducing wall stress of AAA and thus slow down the growth. Modern concept of multilayered ILT proved active inflammatory processes inside, that can significantly affect the quality of the wall and thus lead to the higher growth rate and higher risk of rupture...

The presence of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is associated with increased thrombin formation, fibrin turnover and fibrinolysis. The aim of this study was to review the relevant literature and summarize the evidence regarding the impact of endovascular repair on the circulating markers of coagulation and fibrinolysis post procedure. The main findings are that the increased thrombin activation, and formation, as well as fibrinolysis, in patients with AAA is exacerbated after endovascular repair in the short-term and the mid-term, implying that this may be a period associated with an increased likelihood for adverse cardiovascular events...

The aim of this review was to discuss the different techniques of leg edema measurement that have been used in clinical trials to help determine the most appropriate method of assessment and quantification for use in future research. Venoactive drugs such as micronized purified flavonoid fraction (MPFF) are established agents for the treatment of venous leg edema, but results from randomized- controlled trials vary depending on the method of edema assessment. The medical literature was searched for published articles using the terms venous lower limb edema and method of edema assessment...

Competitive inhibition of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) is the main biological effect of asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) - the methylated derivative of L- arginine. The resulting low level of NO is becoming one of the elements of pathogenesis of numerous cardiovascular disorders, mainly related to atherosclerosis, but also other metabolic diseases including type 2 diabetes. It appears that a high level of ADMA is not only a marker of pathological conditions such as chronic kidney failure, but also a significant factor which damages the endothelium...

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...

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...
