Background Stroke patients transferred in for endovascular treatment (ET) may have lower chances for favorable outcomes compared to those who presented directly to a ET-capable hospital. We describe our real-world experience of ET in AIS, especially among patients transferred in. Materials and methods AIS patients receiving ET from January 2015 to November 2016 were reviewed. We calculated median onset to groin puncture (OTP) and groin puncture to recanalization times (PTR), location of target vessel treated, rate of concurrent intravenous (IV) alteplase use, and rate of successful recanalization as defined by TICI ≥ 2b...

OBJECTIVES: Cryopreserved arterial allografts are vascular substitutes used for arterial reconstructions in a septic field. Their use remains however limited by the shortage of donors. One of the possibilities to address this lack of grafts is to multiply the sources of retrieval. The objective of this preliminary study was the evaluation of the early clinical results and the microbiological safety of arterial grafts retrieved after death. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In addition to the standard conditions of arterial sampling the criteria of inclusion for postmortem retrieval comprised the refrigeration of the body of the donor within four hours following the death, a 24-hour time limit from the death, and the availability of an adapted place for retrieval (surgical unit or death chamber respecting the required aseptic conditions)...

The number and complexity of endovascular procedures performed via either arterial or venous access are steadily increasing. Albeit associated with higher morbidity compared to the radial approach, the traditional common femoral artery remains the preferred access site in a variety of cardiac, aortic, oncologic and peripheral vascular procedures. Both transarterial and venous cannulation (for electrophysiology, intravenous laser ablation and central catheterisation) at the groin may result in potentially severe vascular access site complications (VASC)...

Vascularization of bioartificial tissues can be significantly enhanced by the generation of an arterio-venous loop (AV loop). Besides the surgical vascularization, the choice of the scaffold and the applied cells are indispensable cofactors. The combination of alginate dialdehyde and gelatin (ADA-GEL) and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is a promising approach with regards to biocompatibility, biodegradation as well as de novo tissue formation. In this study we targeted the investigation of the vascularization of ADA-GEL with and in absence of encapsulated MSCs in the AV loop model...
