OBJECTIVE: Resistin is a hormone that has been associated with metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease. The role of resistin in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) has not been fully explored. This study seeks to understand the relationship between serum resistin, vascular function, and cardiovascular outcomes in patients with PAD. METHODS: There were 106 patients with PAD who were recruited between 2011 and 2016. Patients attended a baseline visit during which a comprehensive vascular physiology assessment including medical and surgical history, radial artery tonometry, and flow mediated-vasodilation (FMD) was completed...

BACKGROUND: The prognosis of peripheral artery disease (PAD) and comorbid sarcopenia is poor. Some reports indicate that the computed tomography (CT) value of skeletal muscle, which reflects intramuscular fat deposition as well as skeletal muscle mass, is considered a marker of sarcopenia. However, it remains unclear if skeletal muscle area and CT value are associated with poor outcomes in patients with PAD. Methods and Results: Psoas muscle area and CT value were measured by manual trace at the level of the third lumbar vertebral body in 327 consecutive patients with PAD undergoing endovascular therapy (EVT)...

OBJECTIVE: Ankle-brachial index is an excellent tool for diagnosing peripheral artery disease (PAD). We aimed to determine the prevalence and risk factors for PAD in people living with HIV (PLWH) compared with uninfected controls. We hypothesized that prevalence of PAD would be higher among PLWH than among controls independent of traditional cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors. METHODS: PLWH aged 40 years and older were recruited from the Copenhagen comorbidity in HIV infection (COCOMO) study...

The neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), as a marker of inflammation, is associated with the severity of peripheral artery disease (PAD). The role of the NLR on predicting future complications after elective revascularization for patients with PAD remains unknown. We aimed to examine the role of the NLR in the development of major adverse limb events (MALE) and the long-term mortality of these patients. We evaluated 1708 revascularization procedures from May 2001 to December 2015 at the Veterans Affairs Western New York Healthcare System from a prospectively maintained vascular database that included demographics, comorbidities and pre-procedural medications...

BACKGROUND: Patients with peripheral arterial disease often have high comorbidity burden that may complicate post-interventional course and drive increased health-care expenditures. Racial disparity had been observed in lower extremity revascularization (LER) patterns and outcomes. In 2014, Maryland adopted an all-payer rate-setting system to limit the rising hospitalization costs. This resulted in an aggregate payment system in which hospital compensation takes place as an overall per capita expenditure for hospital services...

BACKGROUND: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a highly prevalent disease with severe long-term consequences, and a known risk factor for peripheral artery disease (PAD). These two diseases combined are responsible for high morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study is to investigate the burden of PAD in patients with DM, the effect of revascularization on outcomes, and geographical variation in the access to PAD courses of treatment. METHODS: From the healthcare claims of the Lombardy residents (16% of the Italian population) we identified diabetic patients with PAD as the study population, distinguishing between patients who received revascularization procedures (Revasc) and those who did not (NoRevasc)...

Fibronectin (FN) may be involved in time- and stage-dependent and inter-related controlled processes of inflammation, coagulation, and wound healing accompanying peripheral arterial disease (PAD). In the present study, FN and FN-containing extra-domain A (EDA-FN), macromolecular FN-fibrin complexes, and FN monomer were analysed in the plasma of 142 PAD patients, including 37 patients with restenosis, for 37 months after revascularisation. FN concentration increased significantly in the plasma of PAD patients within 7 to 12 months after revascularisation, whereas the high concentration of EDA-FN was maintained up to 24 months, significantly higher in the group 7 to 12 months after revascularisation with recurrence of stenosis and lower in the PAD groups 1 to 3 months and 4 to 6 months after revascularisation with comorbid diabetes and ulceration, respectively...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the association of diabetes mellitus (DM) with clinical and angiographic characteristics and outcomes of patients with popliteal and infrapopliteal peripheral arterial disease (PAD) undergoing peripheral vascular intervention (PVI). BACKGROUND: Clinical features and outcomes in patients with DM and popliteal or infrapopliteal PAD undergoing PVI are not well described. METHODS: Using the data from the laser in popliteal and infrapopliteal stenosis study, we retrospectively examined the association of diabetes with clinical and angiographic characteristics and risk adjusted short- and intermediate term outcomes (all cause death, major adverse events (MAE) [composite of death, ipsilateral major amputation, or repeat revascularization]) in patients with popliteal and infrapopliteal PAD undergoing PVI for critical limb ischemia treated either with laser-assisted balloon angioplasty or balloon angioplasty alone...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Adult acquired buried penis is a morbid condition characterized by complete entrapment of the phallus as a result of morbid obesity, post-surgical cicatrix formation, or primary genital lymphedema. Hygienic voiding is not possible and urinary dribbling is frequent with accompanying inflammation, skin breakdown, and infection from the chronic moisture. The end result is penile skin fibrosis resulting in permanent functional loss. Herein, we describe the etiology of adult acquired buried penis, advances in its surgical management, and quality of life outcomes with treatment...

Obesity is one of the most serious public health problems in the 21st century that may lead to many comorbidities such as type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer. Current treatments toward obesity including diet, physical exercise, pharmacological therapy, as well as surgeries are always associated with low effectiveness or undesired systematical side effects. In order to enhance treatment efficiency with minimized side effects, we developed a transcutaneous browning agent patch to locally induce adipose tissue transformation...

OBJECTIVE: Diabetes and peripheral arterial disease (PAD) are independently associated with increased risk of amputation. However, the effect of poor glycemic control on adverse limb events has not been studied. We examined the effects of poor glycemic control (high hemoglobin A1c level) on the risk of amputation and modified major adverse limb events (mMALEs) after lower extremity revascularization. METHODS: Patients undergoing PAD revascularization who had hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c ) levels available within 6 months were identified in the Veterans Affairs database of 2003 to 2014 (N = 26,799)...
