#1
Peter Poredos, Pavel Poredos
Surgical procedures represent a risk for different complications which may appear during the perioperative period. Cardiac ischemic events and vascular complications are the most important causes of increased morbidity and mortality and they are much more frequent in patients with manifest cardiovascular disease. This is particularly seen in patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAD), which represents advanced atherosclerosis frequently accompanied by the presence of coronary artery disease. Therefore, patients with PAD need careful preoperative examination, including estimation of functional capacity and the presence of other co-existing atherosclerotic diseases...

BACKGROUND: Blunt thoracic aortic injury (BTAI) is highly lethal and its management has evolved with the advent of endovascular approaches. We hypothesized that endovascular repair (ER) would have equivalent/improved survival compared to open repair (OR). The aim of our study was to review our center's morbidity and mortality after BTAI. METHODS: Our Level I trauma center registry was queried for BTAI between 2002-2015. This cohort was stratified into three groups: ER, OR and those patients managed non-operatively (NOP)...

BACKGROUND: The extent of calcium volume in the carotid arteries of contrast-based computer tomography (CT) is a valuable indicator of stroke risk. This study presents an automated, simple and fast calcium volume computation system. Since the high contrast agent can sometimes obscure the presence of calcium in the CT slices, it is therefore necessary to identify these slices before the corrected volume can be estimated. METHODS: The system typically consists of segmenting the calcium region from the CT scan into slices based on Hounsfield Unit-based threshold, and subsequently computing the summation of the calcium areas in each slice...

BACKGROUND: Rickettsia was suggested as a possible etiology of Buerger's disease (BD) in the 1980s but this suggestion was never ruled out or proven. Recently, we found evidence of Rickettsia by polymerase chain reaction in 3 out of 25 biopsy samples from the amputated limb of a young man diagnosed with BD. The aim of this paper was to investigate the presence of anti-rickettsial antibodies in the sera of BD patients. METHODS: To detect the IgG class antibody against Rickettsia rickettsii, which has cross reactions with the spotted fever group (RSFG), and Rickettsia typhi, which has cross reactions with typhus fever group, the sera of patients and controls were diluted to 1:64 and analyzed by indirect micro fluorescence immunoassay (MIF)...

Rivaroxaban is one of the direct non-vitamin K antagonists (DOACs) that is globally approved for single drug approach to treat venous thromboembolism (VTE). Its usage is growing quickly, given the practicality of single daily dose, no need for monitoring and a better safety profile compared with that of vitamin K antagonists (VKA). As real world experience with rivaroxaban accumulates, isolated reports regarding its ability to promote earlier and more intense venous recanalization compared with VKA treatment have been published...
