OBJECTIVE: Vascular calcifications (VCs) may be a prognostic factor for outcome after endovascular treatment of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Semi-quantitative analysis with X-ray imaging is the main limiting factor for assessing VCs. The aim of the present study was to find a correlation between the amount of VC with a CT scan quantification and mid-term results of endovascular treatment of TASC C/D femoropopliteal (FP) lesions. METHODS: Patients belonging to two previously published registries (STELLA and STELLA PTX) and who underwent a preoperative CT scan were retrospectively included in the study...

OBJECTIVE: After an infrapopliteal reconstruction, minor amputations are frequently required, but even in the case of successful revascularization, wound healing is a major concern. We studied the role of iliac artery inflow correction in patients undergoing infrapopliteal vein grafts to improve the heal of midfoot amputation. METHODS: Thirty-eight patients affected with Rutherford Grade III Category 5 PAD, who underwent successful simultaneous iliac endovascular procedure, infrapopliteal reversed vein bypass graft, and minor amputation, were enrolled in this retrospective study...

OBJECTIVE: Although the incident risk of peripheral artery disease increases in patients with metabolic syndrome, several authors report favorable outcomes in obese patients after arterial bypass surgery. We examine the effect of the so-called "obesity paradox" and metabolic syndrome on outcomes after open aortoiliac bypass surgery. METHODS: We identified patients between 2004 and 2015 who had open surgical bypass for aortoiliac occlusive disease. We excluded patients with endovascular repair and those treated primarily for aneurysmal disease...

Heel pressure ulcer is a major complication in elderly hospitalized patients. The association with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) which is also a frequent disease in this population is poorly known. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of PAD and critical limb ischemia (CLI) in patients with heel pressure ulcer. Patients referred to the vascular medicine department for heel pressure ulcer from October 2014 to June 2015 were included in the study. The assessment of peripheral arterial disease was made with the results of ankle brachial index and/or doppler ultra sound of lower limb arteries...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate morphological characteristics used to predict recanalisation strategies in long-segment (>10 cm) femoral chronic total occlusion (LSF-CTO) angioplasty. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated a range of morphological CTA and DSA features in patients who underwent recanalisation of LSF-CTO. The stage of CTO was classified into early (3-12 months) and late (>12 months) according to estimated duration. Characteristics including stump morphology, lesion length and calcification, proximal side branches, collaterals circulation, runoff vessels and concomitant arterial occlusion were used as predictors, and multivariate logistic regression analysis was performed to identify variables associated with late-stage CTO and retrograde technique...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Limited data exist on the association of the anatomical distribution of atherosclerotic lesions and the extent of atherosclerosis at defined arterial segments with life expectancy. We recently presented a new classification of the extent of atherosclerosis in crural vessels and showed that Crural Index (CIx) was associated with mid-term survival of symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD) patients. This study evaluates the significance of the extent of crural atherosclerosis on long-term cardiovascular mortality...

We evaluated safety and long-term outcome of endovascular therapy for steno-occlusive iliac artery disease. All endovascular procedures of iliac artery lesions performed at our institution between 2001 and 2014 (n = 676) were retrospectively analyzed. The overall technical success rate was 99% and yielded 100% for stenoses (n = 596) and 95% for chronic total occlusions (n = 80). Lesion complexity defined by the Trans-Atlantic Inter-Society Consensus (TASC) II classification had no impact on success rates (TASC A + B vs C + D; 99...

According to the 2007 TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus (TASC II) guidelines, surgery is the preferred treatment for extensive (TASC II type C and D) aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD). Recent studies, however, have shown that endovascular management can be an effective first-line treatment option for TASC II type C and D categories. While endovascular therapy is now commonly performed in patients with TASC II type D lesions, very few studies have investigated the feasibility and effectiveness of extending endovascular therapy to the most severe subcategory of TASC II D lesions, chronic infrarenal aortoiliac occlusion (CIAO)...

Peripheral artery disease affects >200 million people worldwide and is associated with significant limb and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Limb revascularization is recommended to improve function and quality of life for symptomatic patients with peripheral artery disease with intermittent claudication who have not responded to medical treatment. For patients with critical limb ischemia, the goals of revascularization are to relieve pain, help wound healing, and prevent limb loss. The baseline risk of cardiovascular and limb-related events demonstrated among patients with stable peripheral artery disease is elevated after revascularization and related to atherothrombosis and restenosis...

According to the TASC II and the Russian National Guidelines on management of patients with lower limb arterial diseases, in patients with type C and D lesions of the arterial bed performing aortofemoral bifurcation bypass grafting is preferable. Laparoscopic technique makes it possible to combine advantages of minimally invasive surgery with well-known remote results of open reconstructive operations on the aortoiliac segment. The study included a total of 54 patients undergoing treatment at the Cardiosurgical Department of Clinic No 1 of the Volgograd State Medical University over the period from January 2012 to September 2015...
