Objectives Abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) is poorly identified in surgery for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm and an early management is crucial. The aim of this study was to validate how many risk factors were needed to predict ACS. Secondary objectives were to assess its prevalence and the 30-day mortality. Methods All patients operated for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm during 5 years were included. An independent committee performed a retrospective diagnosis of ACS. Eight criteria were selected from the literature, and corresponded to pre- and intraoperative period: anemia (hemoglobin lower than 10 g/dL), prolonged shock (systolic blood pressure <90 mmHg more than 18 min), preoperative cardiac arrest, obesity (body mass index > 30), massive fluid resuscitation (≥3500 mL per hour for at least 1 h) and transfusions (>10 units packed blood red cell since the beginning of the treatment), severe hypothermia (≤33℃), acidosis (pH < 7...

Purpose Computer tomography angiography is used to assess peripheral arterial disease. Its preference over other imaging modalities is based upon its rapid acquisition and high spatial resolution, along with ease of access. TASC II have recently updated their vascular lesion classification to include infrapopliteal lesions, and our aim is to assess the reproducibility of TASC II on infrapopliteal disease when using computer tomography angiography. Methods A retrospective analysis of a series of consecutive computer tomography angiographies was performed by seven assessors (three consultant radiologists, two consultant vascular surgeons and two vascular specialty trainees)...

Purpose Percutaneous remote access for endovascular aortic repair is an advantageous alternative to open access. Previous surgery in the femoral region and the presence of synthetic vascular grafts in the femoral/iliac arteries represent major limitations to percutaneous remote access. The aim of this study was to evaluate an original technique used for enabling percutaneous remote access for thoracic or abdominal endovascular aortic repair in patients with scar tissue and/or a vascular graft in the groin. Methods Twenty-five consecutive patients with a thoracic (11/25; 44%) or an aortic aneurysm (14/25; 66%) and with a synthetic vascular graft in the groin (16/25; 64%) or a redo groin access (9/25; 36%) were managed through the percutaneous remote access...

Acute myocardial infarction, stroke and pulmonary embolism required a prompt revascularization to restore the normal blood flow as soon as possible. Fibrinolytic treatment has gradually become both dated and underused in the treatment of acute myocardial infarction, after the wide diffusion of cathlab and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty. Conversely, the use of systemic thrombolysis remained a benchmark in the treatment of both ischemic stroke and massive pulmonary embolism. In daily clinical practice, the use of thrombolytic agents is often limited by absolute and/or relative contraindications and possible adverse events after the drug administration, as intracranial and/or extracranial bleeding events...
