BACKGROUND: Stent-based revascularization of long femoro-popliteal (FP) lesions has been mainly studied in claudicants and compromised by restenosis and stent fractures. The Supera(®) stent's biomimetic design allows enhanced fracture resistance. Data for Supera(®) stenting to treat long chronic total occlusions (CTOs) in patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI), are scarce. OBJECTIVE: To assess long-term outcomes of subintimal revascularization with Supera(®) stenting, for long FP CTOs in patients with CLI...

ZhiHui Chang, JiaHe Zheng, ZhaoYu Liu
BACKGROUND: In recent years subintimal angioplasty (SIA) has become an established percutaneous procedure for the treatment of symptomatic lower limb arterial chronic total occlusions. However, the clinical benefits of this practice remain unclear. The aim of the review was to determine the effectiveness of SIA on clinical outcomes. This is an update of a review first published in 2013. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effectiveness of SIA versus other treatment for people with lower limb arterial chronic total occlusions, determined by the effects on clinical improvement, technical success rate, patency rate, limb salvage rate, and morbidity rates...

Since 2002, a national cattle health surveillance system (CHSS) is in place that consists of several surveillance components. The CHSS combines enhanced passive reporting, diagnostic and post-mortem examinations, random surveys for prevalence estimation of endemic diseases and quarterly data analysis. The aim of the data-analysis component, which is called the Trend Analysis Surveillance Component (TASC), is to monitor trends and developments in cattle health using routine census data. The challenges that were faced during the development of TASC and the merits of this surveillance component are discussed, which might be of help to those who want to develop a monitoring and surveillance system that includes data analysis...

OBJECTIVE: Aortobifemoral bypass has been the gold standard treatment for extensive aortoiliac occlusive disease. Endovascular therapy and stenting of aortic and iliac occlusive lesions has proven to be efficacious, especially when dealing with short segment lesions. Endovascular treatment of TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus II (TASC) D aortoiliac occlusive lesions remains a challenge, but a valuable treatment option in poor surgical candidates. We present our operative technique and midterm results in treating TASC D aortoiliac occlusive disease using unibody bifurcated endografts...

The angioplasty of chronic total aortoiliac occlusion using transfemoral is controversial. From March 2014 to December 2015, four consecutive patients (4 males; mean age 58.2±6.8 years; age of range 51-65 years) underwent angioplasty and stenting of TASC-D occlusion. In all the cases, we failed to cross from femoral approach. On switching over to left brachial access, angioplasty was done successfully in all. There was no procedural site complication or clinical evidence cerebral thromboembolism. Self-expandable stents were implanted in all with adequate pre and post dilation...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the prevalence and the association between aspirin resistance in critical limb ischemia patients using the VerifyNow(®) bed-side platelet test, and occurrence of cardiovascular morbidity and/or death at one year. MATERIALS AND METHODS: National multicenter prospective observational study related to COPART II centers.

OBJECTIVES: To describe our single center experience with the use of laser endartherectomy assisted balloon angioplasty in popliteal and infrapopliteal arterial disease. BACKGROUND: Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) carries significant morbidity to patients. Some patients may have multiple comorbid conditions potentially limiting therapeutic options for PAD. Endovascular interventions are aimed at decreasing arterial disease symptoms, improve wound healing and ultimately limb salvage...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the impact of iliac artery's diameters, tortuosity, and peripheral vascular patency on outcome of elective endovascular repair (EVAR) of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) in 2 high volume vascular centers' experience. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted on a prospectively collected database between 2010 and 2012. Anatomical features at pre-operative computed tomography (CTA) considered as potentially influencing outcomes were: iliac diameters, tortuosity (expressed as a ratio), and calcifications, bilateral internal iliac artery (IIA) patency, and presence of Trans-Atlantic Inter-Societies Consensus (TASC) II C/D femoro-popliteal occlusive disease (PAD)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to retrospectively compare early and late results of aortobifemoral bypass and endovascular recanalization with the kissing stent technique in the management of TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus II (TASC II) C and D lesions in the aortoiliac district in a multicenter study. METHODS: From January 2006 to December 2013, 210 open and endovascular interventions for TASC II class C and D aortoiliac obstructive lesions were performed at three Italian teaching hospitals...

Presented herein are the results of endovascular interventions carried out in patients with occlusive lesions of the terminal portion of the aorta and iliac arteries (types C and D according to the TASC II classification). The study comprised a total of 45 subjects with type C and D lesions. The technical success rate in the group of patients with type C lesions amounted to 100% and in the group of those with type D lesions to 92.8%. One-year primary patency of iliac arteries after the endovascular intervention was assessed in 40 patients and amounted to 100% for type C lesions and to 92...

METHODS: A single-center retrospective study was conducted involving 188 patients (mean age 66.4±10.8 years; 116 men) with lower limb claudication or critical limb ischemia who underwent aortoiliac (131, 62.4%) or femoropopliteal (79, 37.6%) interventions on 210 lesions over a 3-year period...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance and predictors of stent failure of paclitaxel drug-eluting stents for the treatment of femoropopliteal disease. METHODS: A retrospective review of clinical and angiographic data was performed for patients treated for femoropopliteal disease with the Zilver PTX (Cook Medical, Bloomington, IN) stent by a single operator between 2012 and 2015 at a tertiary referral center. Clinical grading was determined by both Rutherford classification and the Society for Vascular Surgery's Wound, Ischemia, and Foot Infection (WIFi) scoring system, and lesions were classified anatomically by the TransAtlantic Intersociety Consensus (TASC) II criteria...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to determine the long-term outcomes of SMART stent implantation for femoro-popliteal (FP) lesions. BACKGROUND: The long-term results of SMART stent implantation for FP lesions remained unknown. METHODS: We studied 319 limbs in 269 patients (mean age: 73.2 ± 7.7 years) who underwent SMART stent implantation for FP lesions (mean treated-lesion length: 118.5 ± 81.0 mm) from 2004 to 2014, retrospectively...

REVIEW
Karen M Bussard, Lysette Mutkus, Kristina Stumpf, Candelaria Gomez-Manzano, Frank C Marini
The tumor microenvironment is a heterogeneous population of cells consisting of the tumor bulk plus supporting cells. It is becoming increasingly evident that these supporting cells are recruited by cancer cells from nearby endogenous host stroma and promote events such as tumor angiogenesis, proliferation, invasion, and metastasis, as well as mediate mechanisms of therapeutic resistance. In addition, recruited stromal cells range in type and include vascular endothelial cells, pericytes, adipocytes, fibroblasts, and bone-marrow mesenchymal stromal cells...

BACKGROUND: Clinical trial data show overall favorable outcomes of paclitaxel-eluting stents for treatment of femoro-popliteal (FP) occlusive disease. However, external validity of trial results may be restricted to less complex FP lesions, and limited data on outcomes of paclitaxel-eluting stents in real world practice have been published. METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of data of all patients who received Zilver® PTX® for FP lesion from February 2013 to October 2014 at our center...
