The femoropopliteal artery is one of the commonest sites of involvement in peripheral artery disease (PAD) leading to intermittent claudication and/or critical limb ischemia. Endovascular therapy for superficial femoral artery (SFA) disease has been recognized as a safe and efficient therapy and is recommended by current guidelines as the first-line approach. Although the widespread use of new-generation, self-expanding, nitinol stents in SFA stenosis has reduced the shortcomings associated with plain old balloon angioplasty (POBA), lumen renarrowing at the stented (in-stent restenosis - ISR) level still represents a relevant clinical problem, because of higher risk of recurrent ISR, occlusion and surgical revascularization compared to de-novo lesions...

OBJECTIVES: This study was designed to evaluate outcomes of adventitial dexamethasone delivery adjunctive to standard endovascular revascularization in femoropopliteal peripheral artery disease. BACKGROUND: Drug-coated balloons and drug-eluting stents improve patency of endovascular interventions with passive diffusion of antiproliferative drugs. Adventitial dexamethasone delivery targets the initial triggers of the inflammatory reaction to injury, thus potentially providing a potent antirestenotic strategy...

BACKGROUND:  Reconstruction using supermicrosurgery, a technique of microneurovascular anastomosis for smaller vessels (< 0.8 mm), has become popular. Experimental animal studies for supermicrosurgery training have been reported; however, there have been few studies performed according to vessel diameter and pedicle length. In this study, the external diameters of four vessels (femoral, superficial epigastric, axillary, and common thoracic) and pedicle length of two flaps (superficial epigastric and common thoracic-long thoracic) were measured...

The article reflects the experience in and efficacy of endovascular interventions in patients presenting with type C and D lesions of the superficial femoral artery (SFA) according to the TASC II classification. The study included a total of 89 patients with the pathology involved. The obtained findings demonstrated encouraging immediate and remote results of the interventions performed, thus making it possible to recommend the use of angioplasty and stenting of long occlusions of the SFA, yielding satisfactory results in the majority of cases, both immediately after the operation and in the remote period...

We aimed to analyze the effects of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of the superficial femoral artery (SFA) on arterial pulse waves (PWs). Altogether 24 subjects i.e. 48 lower limbs were examined including 26 treated lower limbs having abnormal ankle-to-brachial pressure index (ABI) (ABI<0.9 or ABI>1.3) and 22 non-treated lower limbs. The measurements were conducted in pre-, peri- and post-treatment phases as well as in follow-up visit after 1 month. Both ABI and toe pressures measured by standard equipment were used as reference values...

NEW FINDINGS: What is the central question of this study? The role of FGF21 as an exercise-induced myokine remains controversial. The aim of this study was to determine whether eccentric exercise would augment the release of FGF21 and/or its regulatory enzyme Fibroblast Activation Protein (FAP) from skeletal muscle tissue into the systemic circulation of healthy human volunteers. What is the main finding and its importance? Eccentric exercise does not release total or bioactive FGF21 from human skeletal muscle...

INTRODUCTION: The most significant blood vessel supplying the hip joint is the medial femoral circumflex artery (MFCA). MFCA with lateral femoral circumflex artery (LFCA) are the first branches of the deep femoral artery (DFA) or they originate directly from the common femoral artery (CFA) or superficial femoral artery (SFA). PURPOSE AND METHODS: We analyzed 100 CT angiogram of the hip region [72 men, 28 women; mean age 46.4 (14-80)] to assess the frequency of each type of division of the MFCA and LFCA from either the DFA or directly from the CFA or SFA...

Background: Endovascular stenting has surpassed bypass surgery to become the first-line treatment for superficial femoral artery (SFA) occlusive disease, and various types of stents including bare-metal stents (BMSs), covered stents, and drug-eluting stents (DESs), have been approved for treatment. This retrospective, single-institute study compared the short-term, real-world outcomes of BMSs and DESs for treating SFA occlusive disease. Methods: A retrospective chart review was used to enroll 94 patients who received a DES (n = 24) or BMS (n = 70) between 2009 and 2014...

OBJECTIVE: A suitable ipsilateral great saphenous vein (GSV) autograft is widely considered the best material for arterial reconstruction of a popliteal artery aneurysm (PAA). There are, however, cases in which such a GSV is absent, diseased, or of too small diameter for this use. Alternatives to GSV are synthetic conduits, but with a reduced long-term patency, in particular for infragenicular bypass; other venous autografts of marginal use; and stent grafts still in the first stages of their evaluation...

Pseudoaneurysm in Salmonella infection is a rare complication of lupus. We describe a 51-year-old woman with lupus who suffered from swelling and painful sensation of right lower limbs. The Doppler ultrasound study revealed a large pseudoaneurysm of right superficial femoral artery and the tissue culture was Salmonella group D. Surgical repair with stent grafting was performed successfully. This vascular complication with Salmonella infection has not been previously described in lupus.

PURPOSE: The cerclage passer instrument was introduced for aiding percutaneous reduction in spiral femur fractures, thereby overcoming the risk of devascularization of the fracture ends commonly associated with traditional open cerclage wiring techniques. This may, however, predispose to iatrogenic vascular injuries owing to the proximity of the vessels and several other factors. We report four cases with femoral artery (superficial and deep) injuries caused by the cerclage passer in proximal femur and distal femur shaft fractures and incidence of these injuries in our institution...
