PURPOSE: To investigate outcomes of drug-coated balloon (DCB) angioplasty in endovascular interventions including or restricted to the popliteal artery. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted of 266 patients [median age 72 years, interquartile range (IQR) 62, 78; 166 men] treated with DCB angioplasty in 281 de novo lesions including the popliteal artery between December 2011 and January 2015 at a single center. The median lesion length was 270 mm (IQR 150, 373)...

PURPOSE: To compare periprocedural complications and in-stent restenosis rates associated with open- vs closed-cell stent designs used in carotid artery stenting (CAS). METHODS: A systematic search was conducted to identify all randomized and observational studies published in English up to October 31, 2017, that compared open- vs closed-cell stent designs in CAS. Identified studies were included if they reported the following outcomes: stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA), myocardial infarction (MI), hemodynamic depression, new ischemic lesions detected on imaging, and death within 30 days, as well as the incidence of in-stent restenosis...

PURPOSE: To investigate the initial proximal position and seal of the Nellix EndoVascular Aneurysm Sealing (EVAS) system in the aortic neck using a novel methodology. METHODS: Forty-six consecutive patients who underwent elective EVAS for an abdominal aortic aneurysm were retrospectively selected and dichotomized into an early (n = 23) and a late (n = 23) group. The aortic neck morphology and aortic neck surface (ANS) were determined on preoperative computed tomography (CT) scans; the endograft position and nonapposition surface (NAS) were determined on the 1-month CT scans...

PURPOSE: To compare the total initial treatment costs for open surgery, endovascular revascularization, and primary major amputation within a single-payer healthcare system. METHODS: A multicenter, retrospective analysis was undertaken to evaluate 1138 patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD) who underwent 1017 endovascular procedures, 86 open surgeries, and 35 major amputations between 2013 and 2016. A cost-mix analysis was performed on individual patient data generated for selected diagnosis-related groups...

PURPOSE: To describe a novel modification technique to lower the distal radial force of a thoracic stent-graft so as to avert stent-graft-induced new entry tears (SINE) in the fragile aorta of patients with genetic aortic disease and aortic dissection. TECHNIQUE: A commercially available thoracic stent-graft is partially deployed on a back table. The most distal Z-stent is removed, the distal fabric is marked by vascular clips, and the modified stent-graft is reloaded and deployed in the true lumen of an aortic dissection...

PURPOSE: The aim of this retrospective analysis was to evaluate the performance of the chimney (ch) technique in the treatment of type Ia endoleaks after standard endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). METHODS: Between January 2008 and December 2014, 517 chEVAR procedures were performed in 13 US and European vascular centers (PERICLES registry). Thirty-nine patients (mean age 76.9±7.1 years; 33 men) were treated for persistent type Ia endoleak and had computed tomography angiography or magnetic resonance angiography follow-up at >1 month...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the safety and feasibility of treating calcified infrapopliteal stenoses using an intravascular lithotripsy (IVL) system. METHODS: The Disrupt BTK study was a prospective, nonrandomized, multicenter, feasibility, and safety trial that enrolled 20 patients (mean age 79.0±9.6 years; 14 men) at 3 participating sites ( identifier NCT02911623). Fifteen patients had Rutherford category 5 ischemia, and all patients had moderate to severe below-the-knee arterial calcification...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the impact of the revised Nellix instructions for use (IFU) from 2016 on clinical outcomes and anatomic applicability by retrospectively applying them to a cohort treated with endovascular aneurysm sealing according to the original IFU 2013. METHODS: A single-center study was conducted of 100 consecutive patients (mean age 72±8 years, range 46-91; 89 men) treated electively with standard bilateral EVAS from July 2013 to August 2015 and followed through December 2017...

PURPOSE: To quantify and compare the incremental cost associated with in-hospital stroke, death, and myocardial infarction (MI) after carotid endarterectomy (CEA) vs carotid artery stenting (CAS). METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed of 100,185 patients (mean age 70.7±9.5 years; 58.3% men) who underwent CEA (n=86,035) or CAS (n=14,150) between 2009 and 2015 and were entered into the Premier Healthcare Database. Multivariate logistic models and generalized linear models were used to analyze binary outcomes and hospitalization costs, respectively...

PURPOSE: To describe a new adjustable puncture system for in situ fenestration in thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). TECHNIQUE: An adjustable puncture needle for use in conjunction with a steerable 8-F, 55-cm Fustar sheath is demonstrated in a 65-year-old man with acute complicated type B dissection involving the left subclavian artery (LSA). The puncture device features an inflatable balloon at the tip, a central lumen for 0.018-inch guidewires, and a 3-level puncture depth...

PURPOSE: To investigate the influence of (1) an additional side port for flushing the hollow pusher in Zenith thoracic stent-graft delivery systems and (2) additional carbon dioxide flushing on the amount of air released during stent-graft deployment. METHODS: Twenty thoracic stent-grafts with an additional flush port to fill the hollow pusher were separated into 2 equal groups (C and D). Both groups were flushed with 20 mL of normal saline through the extra side port connected to the pusher and with 60 mL of saline through the regular flushing port...

PURPOSE: To demonstrate different techniques and device modifications that can expand the anatomic suitability of the off-the-shelf multibranched t-Branch for treatment of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm. TECHNIQUE: The t-Branch device is not customized for specific patient anatomy, and the most frequent limitations to its use are an inadequate sealing zone and renal artery anatomy. Experience with this device has prompted the development of several techniques that can be employed to maximize the suitability of this stent-graft...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the orientation of the standardized off-the-shelf multibranched t-Branch after implantation in urgent thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA) repairs, to characterize the impact of branch malorientation on procedural success, and to identify any predictive factors associated with malorientation. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted of 42 consecutive patients (mean age 73.3±7 years; 25 men) with urgent TAAA presentation treated with the t-Branch from January 2014 to June 2017...
