[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to investigate the differential effects of fixation of the thoracolumbar junction on the activity of the thoracic and lumbar muscle groups with and without the abdominal drawing-in maneuver (ADIM). [Subjects and Methods] The participants were 40 healthy adults. During trunk extension, thoracic and lumbar muscle activities were assessed using surface electromyography when fixing the pelvic and popliteal areas and the thoracolumbar junction, with and without the ADIM. [Results] The activity of the thoracic extensors at the T9 level applying thoracolumbar fixation with ADIM was significantly higher than with only pelvic fixation or pelvic fixation with ADIM during prone trunk extension...

OBJECTIVE: Surgical site infection (SSI) after open lower extremity bypass (LEB) is a serious complication leading to an increased rate of graft failure, hospital readmission, and health care costs. This study sought to identify predictors of SSI after LEB for arterial occlusive disease and also potential modifiable factors to improve outcomes. METHODS: Data from a statewide cardiovascular consortium of 35 hospitals were used to obtain demographic, procedural, and hospital risk factors for patients undergoing elective or urgent open LEB between January 2012 and June 2015...

Adventitial cystic disease is an uncommon condition that is characterized by the collection of mucinous material that accumulates in the adventitial layer of the artery. Predominantly, this entity affects the popliteal artery, whereas it is extremely rare in the radial artery. We report a 72-year-old female patient that underwent surgical treatment of an adventitial cyst of the right radial artery. The involved arterial segment was resected, and reconstruction by means of the interposition of a saphenous vein graft was performed...

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: 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...

AIM: A successful antegrade wire crossing for femoro-popliteal chronic total occlusion (FP-CTO) is still a technical challenge. We attempted to demonstrate the safety and feasibility of the OUTBACK(®) Elite reentry catheter and the bi-directional approach for failed FP-CTO cases with the antegrade approach. METHODS: Endovascular therapy for FP-CTO was performed in 219 lesions from May 2013 to December 2016 at Morinomiya Hospital. We retrospectively analyzed the data of 43 consecutive lesions which underwent endovascular therapy using the bi-directional approach with distal access and the mono-directional approach with the OUTBACK(®) Elite reentry catheter for FP-CTO lesions...

BACKGROUND: The role of collateral artery circulation in the lower limb is under debate but clinically relevant, particularly when using covered stents for occlusive disease. Covered stents seem to outperform nitinol stents in extensive disease, but collaterals could be essential in case of acute thrombosis. In the present study, we describe the collateral pathways of the deep and superficial femoral artery (DFA, SFA) and the popliteal artery (PA), observed in human cadavers. METHODS: Ten fresh frozen cadaver legs were selected...

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) is a rare cause of lower extremity arterial ischemia, especially in elder patients. At present, the role of the endovascular technique for PAES is still mainly auxiliary, there is no successful case treated successfully by endovascular treatment without open surgery, and also the long-term follow-up after endovascular treatment are lacking. We successfully treated a 51-year-old man with pale, cold right foot by endovascular therapy only, including percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and catheter directed thrombolysis...

We report a rare case of vascular graft-associated aneurysmal angiosarcoma by (18)F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET). An 81-year-old male patient, with a prior history of graft interposition 1 year previously, was referred to (18)F-FDG-PET because of an inflammatory syndrome of unknown origin. FDG-PET images revealed a particular pattern of intense circular uptake within the arterial wall (SUVmax = 10) in a popliteal aneurysm and, additionally, a large hypermetabolic mass centered by the graft...

PURPOSE: Only anecdotal cases concerning primary stenting of thrombosed popliteal artery aneurysm (PAA) without a preoperative intra-arterial thrombolysis are reported. We report our series of six patients treated with this technique. CASE REPORT: Six male patients, aged between 63 and 88, came to our attention in the last 10 years for acute limb ischemia due to thrombosis of a PAA. In all the cases immediate digital subtraction angiography (DSA) was performed, the occlusion was crossed with an angiographic guidewire and, once an adequate distal landing zone was identified in the distal popliteal artery, a primary stenting was performed...

Adventitial cystic disease is a rare non-atheromatous cause of popliteal artery disease. Here, we present a case of a 51-year-old male patient who presented with right calf claudication caused by adventitial cystic disease. Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging and intraoperative findings revealed the presence of a connection between the cyst and adjacent knee joint. In addition, histopathological examination revealed that the tissue structure of the connection was similar to that of adventitial cysts. The tissue composed of two types of cells, namely macrophages and fibroblast-like cells, and lesional cells expressed D2-40...

A 55-year-old male with a history of iliac artery - popliteal artery polytetrafluoroethylene graft bypass presented 2 years later with sudden onset gross hematuria with sepsis. Computed tomography (CT) angiography was suggestive of fistula between ureter and iliac artery which was treated with arterial covered stent graft. The patient presented 2 weeks later with watery discharge from the previous scar. CT suggested ureter-cutaneous fistula. JJ stenting of ureter was done. The patient was discharged and on follow-up CT scan, there was no evidence of fistula and patient was completely asymptomatic...

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...
