» Contemporary Outcomes of a “Snuffbox First” Hemodialysis Access Approach in the United States
02/03/21 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Society guidelines for permanent hemodialysis (HD) access creation recommend prioritizing the most distal possible autogenous access in order to minimize complications and preserve more proximal options. The “snuffbox” arteriovenous fist...

» A health insurance claims analysis on the impact of female sex on long-term outcomes after peripheral endovascular interventions for symptomatic peripheral arterial occlusive disease
26/02/21 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
There are several reports addressing sex disparities in peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) treatment with inconclusive or even conflicting results. However, most previous studies have neither been sufficiently stratified nor us...

» The Association of Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate with Outcomes Following Infra-Inguinal Bypass for Peripheral Arterial Disease.
25/02/21 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a recognized predictor of long-term survival, frequently co-existing with peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is a more accurate marker of renal function than cre...

» Early Outcomes of Jotec Inner-Branched Endografts in Complex Endovascular Aortic Aneurysm Repair
25/02/21 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Complex aortic endografts have evolved to include inner branches to overcome specific challenges with existing technologies. Here we report the early outcomes of endovascular aortic repairs using a Jotec inner branched endograft (iBEVAR).

We would like to thank Mr Piotrowski for his letter and interest in our article. One of the central themes of the study was to determine the natural history of isolated penetrating aortic ulcer (PAU) and whether surveillance alone would ...

» The rationale for extending screening guidelines for abdominal aortic aneurysms
24/02/21 10:13 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
As Carnevale et al1 correctly reported, ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) represent the 15th leading cause of death and were responsible for nearly 10,000 deaths in 2017 in the United States. A study reporting the epidemiology o...
