BACKGROUND: Coarctation of the aorta (CoA) with aortic arch hypoplasia (AAH) is a relatively common congenital heart disease in clinical practice. Nonetheless, the corrective surgical technique for infants and children is a clinical problem that remains controversial. In this study, we sought to evaluate the surgical effects of aortic arch (AA) reconstruction with coarctation resection and aortoplasty with autologous pulmonary artery patch for infants and young children with CoA and AAH...

BACKGROUND: The effect of the insertion of guidewires and catheters on fusion accuracy of the three-dimensional (3D) image fusion technique during iliac percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) procedures has not yet been investigated. METHODS: Technical validation of the 3D fusion technique was evaluated in 11 patients with common and/or external iliac artery lesions. A preprocedural contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiogram (CE-MRA) was segmented and manually registered to a cone-beam computed tomography image created at the beginning of the procedure for each patient...

Despite the progress in endovascular treatment of patients with peripheral arterial disease, restenosis remains the major drawback, especially in patients with femoropopliteal lesions. To reduce neointimal proliferation and subsequent restenosis the use of antiproliferative drug eluting devices was implemented in the endovascular treatment of femoropopliteal disease. Aiming to use the favorable effects of these antiproliferative agents and to reduce foreign body exposure in affected arteries, drug coated balloons (DCB) have been developed...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is treated with anticoagulation therapy, transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS), angioplasty, and liver transplantation. TIPS is not always technically feasible, due to the complete hepatic venous thrombosis. Direct intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (DIPS) is an alternative method for decompression of portal hypertension. This is a retrospective, single-center study aiming to evaluate the outcome of ultrasound (US)-guided DIPS in patients with BCS...

Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a rare disease with an incidence of 0.1 to 10 per million inhabitants a year caused by impaired venous outflow from the liver mostly at the level of hepatic veins and inferior vena cava. Etiological factors include hypercoagulable conditions, myeloprolipherative diseases, anatomical variability of the inferior vena cava, and environmental conditions. Survival rates in treated patients range from 42 to 100% depending on the etiology and the presence of risk factors including parameters of Child-Pugh score, sodium and creatinine plasma levels, and the choice of treatment...

In the age of stent deployment after balloon angioplasty. In stent restenosis (ISR) has become a major concern. Various coronary interventional measures and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) has employed to manage the ISR. Although CABG seems to offer advantages over other coronary intervention methods in patients with multi vessel ISR; lack of appropriate graftable vessels often make the surgery difficult and end up with incomplete revascularization. Coronary endarterectomy with stent removal mitigated some of the limitations of CABG but initial results of this surgical measure were not favorable...

The inhibition of inflammation and vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation is an ideal strategy to suppress intimal hyperplasia after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA). Evidence has indicated that overexpression of A20 suppresses neointima formation, but its low transfection efficiency limits its application. Hence, we upregulated A20 expression via transfection of rAd.ATF (recombinant adenovirus vector of artificial transcription factor) and rAd.A20 in rat carotid arteries after balloon dilatation (in vivo) and isolated VSMCs (in vitro)...

BACKGROUND: Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) in the context of cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome (CHS) is an uncommon but potentially lethal complication after carotid revascularization for carotid occlusive disease. Information about its incidence, risk factors and fatality is scarce. Therefore, we aimed to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis focusing on the incidence, risk factors and outcomes of ICH in the context of CHS after carotid revascularization. METHODS: We searched the PubMed and EBSCO hosts for all studies published in English about CHS in the context of carotid revascularization...

BACKGROUND: Atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis reduces renal blood flow (RBF) and amplifies stenotic kidney hypoxia. Revascularization with percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA) and stenting often fails to recover renal function, possibly because of ischemia/reperfusion injury developing after PTRA. Elamipretide is a mitochondrial-targeted peptide that binds to cardiolipin and stabilizes mitochondrial function. We tested the hypothesis that elamipretide plus PTRA would improve renal function, oxygenation, and RBF in patients with atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis undergoing PTRA...

INTRODUCTION: Atherosclerosis is the most common cause of chronic lower limb ischaemia. Many factors that have a crucial influence on the development of the disease, its course and prognosis have been identified. The risk factors seem to be subject to interventions due to their susceptibility to changes. It is important to increase the engagement of doctors and nurses performing the screening oriented on risk factors, medical consultation regarding giving up smoking, changing the diet and undertaking physical activity...
