Scope A systematic review of the clinical literature concerning medical management of chronic venous disease with the venoactive therapy Micronized Purified Flavonoid Fraction was conducted in addition to an investigation of the hemodynamics and mechanism of chronic venous disease. Methods The systematic review of the literature focused on the use of Micronized Purified Flavonoid Fraction (diosmin) which has recently become available in the US, in the management of chronic venous disease. The primary goal was to assess the level of evidence of the role of Micronized Purified Flavonoid Fraction in the healing of ulcers, and secondarily on the improvement of the symptoms of chronic venous disease such as edema...

Serum uric acid (SUA) is correlated with an increased risk of not only gout but also cardiovascular diseases. The present study aimed to longitudinally evaluate the effects of SUA level on renal function and arterial stiffness in a population-based sample of normotensive subjects. The subjects completed a health checkup in 2002 at baseline and in 2011 or 2012 at the end of the follow-up period. A total of 407 normotensive subjects (171 men and 236 women) aged 26-66 years were enrolled in this study. We measured blood pressure (BP), brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV), central BP, intima-media thickness, SUA level and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR)...

AIM: We investigated the relationships of serum uric acid levels with the progression of atherosclerosis in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) after treatment. METHODS: Subjects were male patients diagnosed with PAD. Atherosclerosis at the common carotid artery was evaluated based on its intima-media thickness (IMT). Leg arterial flow was evaluated by measuring ankle-brachial index (ABI) and exercise-induced decrease in ABI. RESULTS: Among various risk factors including age, blood pressure, adiposity, estimated glomerular filtration rate, and blood lipid, blood glucose, uric acid, fibrinogen and C-reactive protein levels, only uric acid levels showed significant correlations with ABI [Pearson's correlation coefficient, -0...

Prognostic role of ankle-brachial index (ABI) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is controversial. We aimed to evaluate whether abnormal ABI was an independent predictor of cardiovascular or all-cause mortality in CKD patients with or without hemodialysis by conducting a meta-analysis. We systematically searched Pubmed and Embase databases for prospective observational studies that investigated baseline abnormal ABI and subsequent cardiovascular or all-cause mortality risk in CKD patients with or without hemodialysis...

BACKGROUND: Some peripheral artery disease (PAD) patients have normal ankle brachial index (ABI) (0.9 - 1.4), although ABI is a useful parameter for the diagnosis of PAD. We investigated whether other parameters of ABI report sheet are useful to detect these patients. METHODS: We initially enrolled 3,912 patients (7,824 limbs) who underwent ABI for the first time. Subjects who have normal ABI were divided into the PAD group (n = 136) and the non-PAD group (n = 240) by lower extremity ultrasonography...

The aim of this study was to investigate whether arterial stiffness plays a role in retaining normal diastolic function in a middle-aged and elderly Korean population. A total of 267 patients without documented cardiovascular disease, 50 years and older (mean age, 57.3±6.3 years; 69.8% men) were retrospectively analyzed. All patients underwent both transthoracic echocardiography and brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity measurement on the same day. Patients with septal annular peak velocity (e') ≥8 cm/s and left atrial volume index <34 mL/m(2) were considered as having normal diastolic function...

Critical limb ischemia (CLI) is the end stage of lower extremity peripheral vascular disease (PVD) in which severe obstruction of blood flow results in ischemic rest pain, ulcers and/or gangrene, and a significant risk of limb loss. This open-label, single-arm feasibility study evaluated the safety and therapeutic effectiveness of autologous bone marrow cell (aBMC) concentrate in revascularization of CLI patients utilizing a rapid point-of-care device. Seventeen (17) no-option CLI patients with ischemic rest pain were enrolled in the study...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Postmenopausal status is correlated with increased metabolic syndrome (MetS) and cardiovascular risks. However, the vital roles of age and MetS-associated risk factors in sex-specific arterial stiffness remain unclear. METHODS: In this population-based cross-sectional study of the general population, we enrolled in our Health Examination Program 9812 adult participants who were measured for brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) to assess arterial stiffness...

This case report demonstrates that arterial ulcers may heal with compression therapy. The patient was a 72-year-old woman with elevated blood pressure and type II diabetes mellitus, who underwent angiography because of a painful, non-healing ulcer over the shin. The angiography showed multisegment arterial occlusive disease, not amenable to surgical revascularisation. After 4 months of wearing inelastic bandages, with increased pressure over the ulcer area and hypertension and diabetes under control, the patient was pain-free and the ulcer had healed...

AIMS: To perform a meta-analysis investigating the outcomes of patients undergoing percutaneous revascularization with drug-coated balloon (DCB) angioplasty because of femoropopliteal in-stent restenosis (ISR). METHODS AND RESULTS: We searched scientific databases for studies of DCB angioplasty for femoropopliteal ISR. The primary outcome was target lesion revascularization (TLR). The main secondary outcome was recurrent ISR. Other outcomes of interest were Rutherford class (RC) improvement, ankle-brachial index (ABI) and death...

OBJECTIVE: Evaluation of diagnostic accuracy of an oscillometry-based device (VascAssist) combining fully automated ankle-brachial index (ABI) and pulse-wave velocity (PWV) assessment for detection of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). SUBJECTS AND METHODS: 110 consecutive subjects including symptomatic PAD patients (n = 41) and healthy PAD-free participants (n = 69) were recruited. All subjects underwent standard manual Doppler-based ABI (sABI) and oscillometry-based automated ABI (aABI) measurements (VascAssist)...

BACKGROUND: Both glycated albumin (GA) and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) reflect the mean glucose levels. This study was conducted to investigate the relationships among GA, HbA1c, and arterial stiffness in the general population. METHODS: A total of 11,014 participants were included. Serum GA; HbA1c; and arterial stiffness indices, including brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) and central systolic blood pressure (cSBP), were measured. Single-factor and multivariate regression analyses were performed...

BACKGROUND: The erosion of the early mortality advantage of elective endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) compared with open repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm remains without a satisfactory explanation. METHODS: An individual-patient data meta-analysis of four multicentre randomized trials of EVAR versus open repair was conducted to a prespecified analysis plan, reporting on mortality, aneurysm-related mortality and reintervention. RESULTS: The analysis included 2783 patients, with 14 245 person-years of follow-up (median 5·5 years)...

Hypertension, diabetes and obesity are cardiovascular risk factors closely associated to the development of renal and cardiovascular target organ damage. VAV2 and VAV3, members of the VAV family proto-oncogenes, are guanosine nucleotide exchange factors for the Rho and Rac GTPase family, which is related with cardiovascular homeostasis. We have analyzed the relationship between the presence of VAV2 rs602990 and VAV3 rs7528153 polymorphisms with cardiovascular risk factors and target organ damage (heart, vessels and kidney) in 411 subjects...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Subintimal angioplasty is a common treatment choice for chronic total occlusions (CTO) in the iliac and femoropopliteal arteries. This article describes the technical aspects and early outcomes of two different re-entry devices and comparison with manual re-entry technique. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of 61 patients (re-entry group) treated with Outback or Pioneer Plus catheters was carried out. A matched cohort of patients (n=62) who underwent lower extremity interventions without the use of re-entry devices (manual re-entry group) were also analyzed (overall 123 patients were analyzed)...
