Objectives Vascular endothelial dysfunction leads to the emerging of free oxygen radicals, deficiency of antioxidant system, forming of oxidative stress, inflammatory processes and release of proinflammatory cytokines. These things play big role in the development of primary varicose veins. Prolidase has been reported as an indicator of oxidative stress in diabetes, diabetic neuropathy, non-ulcerous dyspepsia, osteoporosis, polycystic over syndrome and many other diseases. The aim of this study is to evaluate the oxidative stress at venous insufficiency and to provide preliminary knowledge about the role of prolidase enzyme in varicose vein formation...

Enrico Ascher, Jacob E Mandel, Natalie A Marks, Anil P Hingorani
Background Dialysis access-associated steal syndrome is a major complication of arteriovenous fistula creation whereby the low-resistance venous conduit shunts arterial inflow through the anastomosis, resulting in clinically significant distal artery insufficiency. Herein, we describe a case of severe steal phenomenon with gangrene of a digit following placement of an arteriovenous fistula that was treated with a novel, entirely endovascular technique. To our knowledge, this was the first totally endovascular approach to dialysis access-associated steal syndrome...

Objective Postoperative pain following lower extremity revascularization procedures is traditionally controlled with narcotic administration. However, this may not adequately control the pain and puts the patient at risk for complications from opiate use. Here we report an alternative strategy for pain management using a continuous catheter-infused local anesthetic into the operative limb. Design Retrospective case-control study. Methods Patients undergoing lower extremity revascularization procedures using continuous catheter-infused local anesthetic were compared to similar patients undergoing similar procedures during the same time period who did not receive continuous catheter-infused local anesthetic...
