Background The development and use of minimally invasive procedures provide improved options for the management of symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency. While many patients with iliac venous occlusive disease and superficial venous insufficiency improve with combined iliac venous stenting and correction of superficial venous reflux, some patients have symptoms which persist. The goal of this study was to identify clinical factors related to persistent symptoms in patients with leg swelling after treatment of both iliac vein stenting and thermal ablation...

Background Complete thrombosis of an aortic endograft after an endovascular aortic aneurysm repair is a rare complication. The majority of thrombotic events occur in the iliac limbs. Case presentation We present the case of a patient who presented with acute limb ischemia as the result of a thrombosed infra-renal aortic endograft. After restoration of blood flow to the lower extremities with an axillary to bi-femoral artery bypass, the patient was lost to follow-up. The patient returned two years later with a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm due to a type 1A endoleak...

The aim of this study was to evaluate outcomes and feasibility of carotid artery stenting versus carotid endarterectomy, both procedures performed in the same patient. Forty-five subjects (33 males, 70 ± 7 years) underwent carotid endarterectomy or carotid artery stenting, the counter procedure on the contralateral carotid performed after a variable period. We evaluated the post-procedural percentage of carotid stenosis at 30, 180 days and one-year follow-up, and the occurrence of acute myocardial infarction, New York Heart Association class progression, stroke, death, cardiovascular death, angina, transient ischemic attack and renal failure...

The aim of this study was to screen the biomarkers of diabetic limb arterial stenosis. Fasting blood samples of 40 patients with diabetic limb arterial stenosis (experimental group), 40 diabetes patients (diabetic control group), and 40 healthy individuals (healthy control group) were collected. Protein-chip assay analysis and ELISA were used to detect tumor necrosis factor α, interleukin-6, endothelin-1, calcitonin gene-related peptide and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein in the three groups. Protein-chip array analysis and ELISA found consistent results that endothelin-1, tumor necrosis factor α, interleukin-6 and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein in the experimental group were significantly up-regulated while the expression of calcitonin gene-related peptide was down-regulated compared with the healthy control group ( P < 0...

We assessed wound healing in patients on hemodialysis (HD) with critical limb ischemia (CLI). This study enrolled 267 patients (including 120 patients on HD and 147 patients not on HD) who underwent endovascular therapy (EVT) for CLI. The primary endpoint was wound-healing rate at two years. Secondary endpoints were time to wound healing, wound recurrence rate, and limb salvage at two years. The percentage of male and young patients was higher in the HD patients ( p < 0.01). A lower patency of the pedal arch after EVT was observed frequently in HD patients ( p < 0...

Spinal cord ischemia remains the Achilles' heel of thoracic and thoracoabdominal diseases management. Great improvements in morbidity and mortality have been obtained with the endovascular approach TEVAR (Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair) but this devastating complication continues to severely affect the quality of life, even if the primary success of the procedure - dissection/aneurysm exclusion - has been achieved. Several strategies to deal with this complication have been published in the literature over the time...

Background Pelvic vein incompetence is a cause for pelvic pain and recurrent varicose veins in women. The gold standard diagnostic method is reflux venography involving radiation, nephrotoxic contrast and jugular puncture. Trans-vaginal ultrasound (TVU) is increasingly being used as a diagnostic tool for pelvic vein incompetence. Methods Fifty women with clinical suspicion of pelvic vein incompetence and aged between 18 and 55 years were recruited prospectively over two years at a large UK University Teaching Hospital...

We present the case of a 43-year-old female who suffered a stingray injury to her left ankle. The sting caused occlusion of the dorsalis pedis artery, causing dry gangrene of the medial forefoot. A below knee amputation was recommended but she was transferred for a second opinion. A Prostaglandin E1 infusion was commenced, resulting in alleviation of pain and improvement in perfusion. Amputation of great and second toes was performed, with the head of the first metatarsal preserved and covered via a cross-over skin flap raised from the contralateral leg...

Carotid atherosclerosis represents a primary cause for cerebrovascular ischemic events and its contemporary management includes surgical revascularization for moderate to severe symptomatic stenoses. However, the role of invasive therapy seems to be questioned lately for asymptomatic cases. Numerous reports have suggested that the presence of neovessels within the atherosclerotic plaque remains a significant vulnerability factor and over the last decade imaging modalities have been used to identify intraplaque neovascularization in an attempt to risk-stratify patients and offer management guidance...
