Objectives Prior studies examining the effects of statins on arterial aneurysm development and progression yielded conflicting results due to their smaller size and presence of residual confounders. The objective of this study is to examine the association of statins with risk of being diagnosed with aortic, peripheral, and visceral artery aneurysm. Methods This was a retrospective cohort study of Tricare enrollees (from 1 October 2003 to 31 March 2012). Main outcomes were diagnosis of aortic, peripheral, or visceral artery aneurysm and undergoing aortic aneurysm repair procedure during follow-up period...

Objectives There has been a clear move towards endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms owing to better peri-operative outcomes compared with open surgical repair. However, follow-up has continued to reveal relatively high rates of endoleaks and re-interventions. Improvements in endovascular stent-grafts aim to decrease these complications. This systematic review aims to determine the early outcomes of abdominal aortic aneurysm sealing. Methods Standard PRISMA guidelines were followed. A literature search was performed with the aim to extract any publication related to the endovascular aneurysm sealing device...

Increasing prevalence, high morbidity and mortality, and decreased health-related quality of life are hallmarks of peripheral arterial disease. About one-third of peripheral arterial disease patients have intermittent claudication with deleterious effects on everyday activities, such as walking. Exercise training improves peripheral arterial disease symptoms and is recommended as first line therapy for peripheral arterial disease. This review examines the effects of exercise training beyond improvements in walking distance, namely on vascular function, parameters of inflammation, activated hemostasis and oxidative stress, and quality of life...

Introduction Acute mesenteric ischaemia is associated with a significant morbidity and mortality. Endovascular techniques have emerged as a viable alternative treatment option to conventional surgery. Our objective was to conduct a systematic review of the literature and perform a meta-analysis of reported outcomes. Methods Our review conformed to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses statement standards and the protocol was registered in PROSPERO (CRD42016035667). We searched electronic information sources (MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, CENTRAL) and bibliographic lists of relevant articles to identify studies reporting outcomes of endovascular treatment for acute mesenteric ischaemia of embolic or thrombotic aetiology...

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...

Background Venous aneurysms of the upper torso are uncommon in contrast to the abdomen and lower extremities. Mostly silent, they can cause significant morbidity. Large or symptomatic venous aneurysms are generally treated with open resection. To our knowledge, there are no documented cases of head and neck venous aneurysms treated by a hybrid endovascular and open approach. Case Presentation A 56-year-old female presented with the complaint of pain and increasing size of a supraclavicular mass. Imaging revealed a large saccular aneurysm of the subclavian vein with the presence of a large intramural thrombus on computed tomography scan with contrast...
