PURPOSE: To evaluate risk factors for early (<30 days) type I endoleak following thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted of 439 consecutive patients (mean age 74.0±10.0 years; 333 men) who underwent TEVAR at a single center between June 2006 and June 2013. Pathologies included 237 aortic arch aneurysms and 202 descending thoracic aortic aneurysms (dTAA). Maximum TAA diameter was 63.6±13.7 mm. Among the distal aortic arch aneurysms, 124 required coverage of the left subclavian artery (LSA), while the remaining 113 arch aneurysms had debranching (n=40), the chimney technique (n=52), and a branched stent-graft (n=13)...

PURPOSE: To report the midterm results of mechanochemical ablation (MOCA) for treating great saphenous vein (GSV) insufficiency. METHODS: In a 1-year period, 85 consecutive patients (median age 51.4 years; 71 women) undergoing MOCA with polidocanol in 104 limbs were enrolled in a prospective registry. The patients were evaluated at baseline and during follow-up (4 weeks and 1, 2, and 3 years) using duplex ultrasound, the CEAP (clinical, etiologic, anatomic and pathophysiologic) classification, the Venous Clinical Severity Score (VCSS), the RAND Short Form 36-Item Health Survey (RAND-SF36), and the Aberdeen Varicose Vein Questionnaire (AVVQ)...

PURPOSE: To show feasibility of the covered endovascular repair of the aortic bifurcation (CERAB) technique in conjunction with chimney grafts in aortic side branches for complex aortoiliac occlusive disease. METHODS: Two European centers and one facility located in New Zealand participated in a retrospective observational study that enrolled 14 consecutive patients (mean age 61.2±8.9 years; 11 men) treated with CERAB in conjunction with chimney graft(s) between December 2012 and May 2015...

PURPOSE: To describe a sac embolization technique modification for type II endoleak prevention that makes a totally percutaneous approach feasible during endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) using the Excluder stent-graft. TECHNIQUE: Percutaneous access of the common femoral arteries is obtained and 2 suture-mediated closure systems are placed on each side. A 16-F or 18-F sheath is placed for delivery of the Excluder stent-graft main body and a 16-F sheath is used on the contralateral side...

PURPOSE: To report early clinical outcomes with a novel double-layer stent for the internal carotid artery (ICA) and the in vitro investigation of the stent's mechanical properties. METHODS: A prospective single-center study enrolled 30 consecutive patients (mean age 73.1±6.3 years; 21 men) with symptomatic (n=25) or high-grade (n=5) ICA stenosis treated with the new double-layer carotid CGUARD Embolic Prevention System (EPS) stent, which has an inner open-cell nitinol design with an outer closed-cell polyethylene terephthalate layer...

PURPOSE: To report a Bayesian network meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing bare metal stents (BMS), paclitaxel-coated balloons (PCBs), and drug-eluting stents (DES) with balloon angioplasty (BA) or with each other in the infrapopliteal arteries. METHODS: Sixteen RCTs comprising 1805 patients with 1-year median follow-up were analyzed. Bayesian random effects binomial models were employed (WinBUGS). Relative treatment effects were expressed as odds ratios (ORs) with 95% credible intervals (CrI), and the cumulative rank probabilities were calculated to provide hierarchies of competing treatments...

PURPOSE: To test and validate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences for peripheral artery lesion characterization and relate the MRI characteristics to the amount of force required for a guidewire to puncture peripheral chronic total occlusions (CTOs) as a surrogate for immediate failure of endovascular therapy. METHODS: Diseased superficial femoral, popliteal, and tibial artery segments containing 55 atherosclerotic lesions were excised from the amputated limbs of 7 patients with critical limb ischemia...

PURPOSE: To quantify the deformation behavior of the diseased femoropopliteal segment and assess the change to deformation behavior due to various stent placements. METHODS: The length and curvature changes of 6 femoropopliteal segments (the right and left superficial femoral and popliteal arteries) from 3 cadavers were measured in 3-dimensional space based on rotational angiography image data in straight leg and flexed hip/knee (50°/90°) positions before and after placement of nitinol stents of varying type (EverFlex, Misago, and BioMimics 3D) and length (60, 100, and 200 mm) in different locations along the arteries...

PURPOSE: To assess the angiographic and clinical outcomes in patients with erectile dysfunction and isolated penile artery stenoses treated by balloon angioplasty. METHODS: In this prospective study, 22 patients (mean age 61.0±7.6 years, range 50-79) with erectile dysfunction and 34 isolated penile artery stenoses (mean 74.9%±9.1%) were enrolled and underwent balloon angioplasty. The mean International Index for Erectile Function-5 (IIEF-5) score at baseline was 10...

PURPOSE: To investigate the total fluoroscopy time and radiation exposure dose during endovascular aortic repairs using mobile, fixed, or fixed C-arms with 3-dimensional image fusion (3D-IF). METHODS: A systematic search was performed to identify original articles reporting fluoroscopy time (FT) and the kerma area product (KAP) during endovascular aortic repairs. Data were grouped by noncomplex or complex (fenestrated, branched, or chimney) repairs and stratified by type of C-arm...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the clinical efficacy of poststenting fractional flow reserve (FFR) in terms of predicting restenosis in superficial femoral artery (SFA) disease. METHODS: This prospective, single-center, nonrandomized study enrolled 48 patients (mean age 76±9 years; 38 men) with 51 SFA lesions from July 2013 to June 2014. Mean FFR (distal mean pressure/proximal mean pressure) and systolic FFR (distal systolic pressure/proximal systolic pressure) were calculated, and the relationship between these FFR values and restenosis at 12 months was investigated using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis...

PURPOSE: To report operative and midterm outcomes of fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (FEVAR) with the Anaconda device. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted of 39 consecutive patients (median age 74 years; 36 men) treated with the fenestrated Anaconda stent-graft between July 2011 and December 2015 at a single center. Indications for FEVAR were abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) with neck anatomy unsuitable for a standard stent-graft. Median infrarenal neck length was 4 mm (range 0-9)...

PURPOSE: To describe the dual bull's-eye technique to achieve successful extravascular revascularization of an occlusion after vessel perforation when the antegrade and retrograde catheters are too far apart for salvage with a reentry catheter. TECHNIQUE: The dual bull's-eye technique, which is an adaptation of the "gun-sight" method for transjugular portosystemic shunt procedures, is demonstrated in a popliteal artery occlusion in which multiple recanalization attempts have produced vessel perforation...

PURPOSE: To report midterm outcomes after subintimal vs intraluminal drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation for femoropopliteal (FP) chronic total occlusion (CTO). METHODS: This subanalysis of the prospective, multicenter ZEPHYR study (ZilvEr PTX for tHe Femoral ArterY and Proximal Popliteal ArteRy) included 176 patients (mean age 74±8 years; 130 men) with 192 de novo FP CTOs that were evaluated by intravascular ultrasound after successful guidewire crossing. The primary outcome was the 2-year restenosis rate after subintimal (n=73) or intraluminal (n=119) DES implantation...
