BACKGROUND: Thrombosis is a common source of failure in anastomoses, flaps, and vascular grafts. Ensuring vessel patency is critical to the success of microvascular procedures. Any tool that can accurately predict the patency of an anastomosis intraoperatively would enable the surgeon to detect and correct flow restrictions while the patient is still in the operating room. METHODS: The authors used transit-time ultrasound technology in this pilot study to investigate whether a minimal cutoff value for quantitative postoperative blood flow (in milliliters per minute) could be established that would reliably predict sustained vessel patency at 24 hours postoperatively...

INTRODUCTION: Infected femoral pseudoaneurysms are a common presentation in intravenous drug users with little consensus as to the optimum management of these patients. Whilst emergency revascularisation options are available, excision and ligation of the femoral artery remains the most common operative intervention but risks leaving the patient with critical ischaemia or intermittent claudication. This case series reviewed the outcomes of 4 patients who underwent excision-ligation without revascularisation of an infected femoral pseudoaneurysm at a district general hospital...

BACKGROUND: High failure rates of femoropopliteal artery (FPA) interventions are often attributed in part to severe mechanical deformations that occur with limb movement. Axial compression and bending of the FPA likely play significant roles in FPA disease development and reconstruction failure, but these deformations are poorly characterized. The goal of this study was to quantify axial compression and bending of human FPAs that are placed in positions commonly assumed during the normal course of daily activities...

BACKGROUND: Increased carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (PWV) has been associated with incident cardiovascular disease, independently of traditional risk factors. Cardiac autonomic dysfunction is a common complication of diabetes and has been associated with reduced aortic distensibility. However, the association of cardiac autonomic dysfunction with PWV is not known. In this study we examined the association between cardiac autonomic function and PWV in subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus...

BACKGROUND: Severe limb ischaemia (SLI) is defined as the presence of rest pain and/or tissue loss secondary to lower extremity atherosclerotic peripheral arterial disease. The superficial femoral and popliteal arteries are the most commonly diseased vessels in such patients and are being increasingly treated using endovascular revascularisation techniques. However, it is currently unknown whether drug-eluting stents and drug-coated balloons confer additional clinical benefits over more established techniques using plain balloons and bare metal stents, or whether they represent a cost-effective use of NHS resources...

Large-vessel vasculitis (LVV) is a group of diseases mainly comprised of giant-cell arteritis (GCA), Takayasu arteritis, and a series of rare diseases like Behçet's disease, IgG4-related disease, infectious aortitis, and other unfrequent entities. Besides clinical and laboratory features, Doppler sonography (DS) can assist in establishing the diagnosis. Its diagnostic sensitivity has been evaluated in various studies, most of them, however, in temporal arteritis (TA) respectively in LVV with involvement of the temporal artery...

Aneurysmal degeneration of distal landing zones after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), can be a potential cause of late failure of this technique. Aneurysmal degeneration of common iliac arteries increases the risk of rupture of the iliac aneurysm itself as well as of the abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) owing to aneurysm's reperfusion as a type Ib endoleak. Reoperation consists in plugging and covering the internal iliac artery (IIA), by extension into the external iliac artery, or preservation of antegrade flow in IIA by iliac branch devices (IBD) or sandwich technique...

OBJECTIVES: In cases of multilevel obstructive atherosclerotic disease, hybrid procedures of concomitant iliac artery stenting and femoro-popliteal bypass (IS-FPB) may represent a valid approach, but results are still unclear. The aim was to evaluate early and long-term outcomes of concurrent IS-FPB. METHODS: This retrospective study included 75 patients (76 limbs) treated with concomitant IS-FPB between January 2010 and June 2016. All patients were prospectively enrolled in a dedicated database...

INTRODUCTION: There has been a paradigm shift in the treatment of AAA with the advent of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). Rapid progress and evolution of endovascular technology has brought forth smaller profile devices and closure devices. Total percutaneous endovascular aneurysm repair (pEVAR) involves the usage of suture-mediated closure devices (SMCDs) at vascular access sites to avoid a traditional surgical cutdown. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed our experience of pEVAR between April 2013 and July 2014...

BACKGROUND: The lack of early diagnosis, progression markers and effective pharmacological treatment has dramatic unfavourable effects on clinical outcomes in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD). Addressing these issues will require dissecting the molecular mechanisms underlying this disease. We sought to characterize the Notch signaling and atherosclerosis relevant markers in lesions from femoral arteries of symptomatic PAD patients. METHODS: Plaque material from the common femoral, superficial femoral or popliteal arteries of 20 patients was removed by directional atherectomy...

True atherosclerotic aneurysms of superficial femoral artery (SFA) are rare and often associated with other peripheral or aortic aneurysms. We report the case of a 84-year-old patient presenting a giant degenerative ruptured aneurysm of the superficial femoral artery. The patient underwent successful aneurysm resection and bypass grafting, with a satisfying long-term follow-up and patency of the graft. The patient was also operated one year before, for a ruptured aneurysm of the abdominal aorta. This case report is rare, because we described a case of patient with multiple atherosclerotic aneurysms, who present, for the second time, a life threating ruptured aneurysm...
