This study was conducted to identify specific abnormalities using the results from air plethysmography in legs with lymphedema. A routine air plethysmography exercise protocol was performed in 31 patients with unilateral leg lymphedema, and the results were compared with those of 53 patients with unilateral great saphenous vein reflux and 15 normal subjects. The venous filling index in legs with lymphedema (2.1 ± 1.2 mL/sec) was smaller than in legs with great saphenous vein reflux (6.4 ± 4.1 mL/sec, p < 0...

The mechanisms whereby monosodium urate (MSU) crystals deposition in gout activate nociceptors to induce joint pain are incompletely understood. We tried to reproduce the signs of painful gouty arthritis, injecting into the knee joint of rats suspensions containing amorphous or triclinic, needle MSU crystals. The magnitude of MSU-induced inflammation and pain behavior signs was correlated with the changes in firing frequency of spontaneous and movement-evoked nerve impulse activity recorded in single knee joint nociceptor saphenous nerve fibers...

BACKGROUND Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) results from an anomalous relationship between the popliteal artery and the myofascial structures of the popliteal fossa. The most common presenting symptoms include intermittent pain in the feet and calves on exercise, resulting in lameness. PAES can lead to popliteal artery thrombosis, stenosis, distal arterial thromboembolism, or arterial aneurysm. The treatment of PAES includes surgical exploration with fasciotomy, myotomy, or sectioning of fibrous band formation, to release the popliteal artery...

BACKGROUND: In acute situations such as acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with indication for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), total arterial revascularization (TAR) is often rejected in favour of saphenous vein (SV) grafting, which is assumed to allow for quicker vessel harvesting, a simpler anastomosis technique, and thus quicker revascularization and fewer bleeding complications. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether reluctance to apply TAR in AMI is still justified from a technical point of view in the current era and whether superiority of TAR results is also evident in emergency patients with AMI undergoing CABG...

We present the case of a patient who presented with acute coronary syndrome and was found to have a mass compressing the left atrium. An angiogram revealed a large saphenous vein graft aneurysm with a fistula into a cardiac chamber, presumed to be the left ventricle. The patient also developed a functional mitral stenosis secondary to this mass causing left atrial compression. The patient passed away prior to receiving surgery. We describe a rare case of venous graft aneurysm with compression and fistula to a chamber other than the right atrium, that to our knowledge has yet to be reported...

Poor long-term patency of vein grafts remains an obstacle in coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery using an autologous saphenous vein graft. Recent studies have revealed that miR-126-3p promotes vascular integrity and angiogenesis. We aimed to identify the role of miR-126-3p in the setting of vein graft disease and investigate the value of miR-126-3p agomir as a future gene therapy in vein graft failure. Expression analysis of circulating miR-126-3p in plasma from CABG patients established the basic clues that miR-126-3p participates in CABG...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the recurrence rate after high ties performed with or without sparing of the saphenofemoral junction tributaries. METHODS: There were 867 lower limbs enrolled. All patients underwent a high tie with (group A) or without (group B) ligation of all the junctional tributaries for a great saphenous vein reflux (C2-5EpAsPr). A duplex ultrasound examination detected recurrences. RESULTS: Median follow-up was 5 years (interquartile range, 3-8 years)...

Venous valve dysfunction and induced secondary abnormal flows are closely associated with venous diseases. Thus, detailed analysis of venous valvular flow is invaluable from biological and medical perspectives. However, most of the previous studies on venous perivalvular flows were based on qualitative analysis. On the contrary, quantitative analysis of perivalvular flows has not been fully understood. In this study, we used the ultrasound speckle image velocimetry (SIV) technique, which utilizes the speckle patterns of red blood cells (RBCs) created by ultrasound waves to measure 3-D valvular flows quantitatively...

AIM: To present own experience of subclavian-carotid replacement for chronic cerebrovascular insufficiency management. MATERIAL AND METHODS: For 12 years 7 subclavian-carotid reconstructions were performed that was 1.2% of all carotid repairs during this period. Great saphenous vein was always used as a graft. Carotid endarterectomy from proximal internal carotid artery was additionally performed if it was necessary. Patients had severe advanced lesion of supra-aortic vessels including bilateral carotid lesion and significant stenosis of ipsilateral proximal common carotid artery...

Use of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) has had a resurgence, as clinical trial data emerged showing that it remains the standard of care for patients with complex lesions. Debate exists regarding various factors, including endoscopic vs open vein-graft harvesting, single vs bilateral mammary artery grafts, radial artery vs saphenous vein grafts, right internal mammary artery vs radial artery grafts, and on-pump vs off-pump surgery. More recent developments include minimally invasive approaches, robotics, and hybrid revascularization, which are changing the risk-benefit ratio for this patient population...

REVIEW
Jean-Yves Jenny
The exact indication for a unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) remains debated. Minimally invasive techniques have been developed to decrease the surgical trauma related to the prosthesis implantation, and this technique is well fitted to UKA. However, there are concerns about loss of accuracy with minimally invasive techniques. Furthermore, rapid recovery techniques have been developed in order to reduce the length of hospital stay. Again, UKA is well fitted to these new developments of postoperative care...

BACKGROUND: It remains controversial whether grafting moderately stenosed coronary arteries (MSCAs) influences native-vessel disease progression and whether grafting may protect against late myocardial ischemia. METHODS: From 1972 to 2011, 55,567 patients underwent primary isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG); 1,902 had a single coronary artery with angiographically moderate (50% to 69%) stenosis and ≥1 postoperative angiogram. Disease progression was studied in 489 nongrafted, 371 internal thoracic artery (ITA)-grafted, and 957 saphenous vein (SV)-grafted MSCAs, as well as patency of 376 ITA and 1,016 SV grafts to these MSCAs...

A 61-year-old man was admitted because of unstable angina. The patient had a history of CABG [LITA-left anterior descending artery(LAD), aorta-saphenous vein graft(SVG)-posterolateral branch (PL)-diagonal branch (D1)]4 years ago. Coronary angiography revealed an occlusion of old SVG at proximal anastomosis site and a stenosis of native high lateral artery (HL). To reduce the risk of cardiac injury and damage to the patent grafts due at sternal reentry, we performed redo CABG through left thoracotomy. The proximal site of SVG was anastomosed to descending aorta using automated proximal anastomosis system...
