OBJECTIVE: Endovascular techniques to treat abdominal aortic aneurysms results in lower morbidity and mortality rates. However, dilation of the common iliac arteries prevents adequate distal sealing, which compromises the procedure success. The aim of this study is report the long-term outcomes of patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms associated with aneurysm of the common iliac artery following endovascular repair using a bifurcated bell-bottom stent graft. METHODS: This is a retrospective study that evaluated patients treated with bifurcated bell-bottom extension stent grafts to repair an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm and who had at least one common iliac artery with dilatation ≥ 1...

PURPOSE: To investigate the impact of fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (fEVAR) on renal function perioperatively and at midterm. METHODS: A case-controlled study was performed involving 58 patients (mean age 75±7 years; 51 men) who underwent elective fEVAR for a juxtarenal or short-necked abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) matched on age, sex, smoking, diabetes, and baseline estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) with a contemporaneous group undergoing open aneurysm repair (OAR) for the same indications...

PURPOSE: To investigate the 5-year outcome of patients treated with self-expanding covered stents for superficial femoral artery (SFA) occlusive disease and identify parameters that could predict loss of primary patency. METHODS: In a dual-center study, 315 consecutive patients (mean age 69.0±10.1 years; 232 men) treated for SFA occlusive disease in 334 limbs with Viabahn self-expanding covered stents between 2001 and 2014 were retrospectively analyzed. Mean lesion length was 11...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of cilostazol on major outcomes after carotid artery stenting (CAS). METHODS: A systematic literature review was conducted conforming to established criteria in order to identify articles published prior to May 2015 evaluating major post-CAS outcomes in patients treated with cilostazol vs patients not treated with cilostazol. Major outcomes included in-stent restenosis (ISR) within the observation period, the revascularization rate, major/minor bleeding, and the myocardial infarction/stroke/death rate (MI/stroke/death) at 30 days and within the observation period...
