» Duration of asymptomatic status and outcomes following carotid endarterectomy and carotid artery stenting in the Carotid Revascularization Endarterectomy vs Stenting Trial
09/01/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Most carotid revascularization studies define asymptomatic as symptom-free for more than 180 days; however, it is unknown if intervention carries similar risk among those currently asymptomatic but with previous symptoms (PS) vs those wh...

Ali F. AbuRahma (Charleston, WVa). The Ochsner group presents to us this study on the correlation between the severity of neurologic deficits and the timing of carotid intervention, either carotid endarterectomy (CEA) or carotid artery s...

» Patients with moderate to severe strokes (NIHSS score >10) undergoing urgent carotid interventions within 48 hours have worse functional outcomes
09/01/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Increasing evidence suggests that urgent carotid intervention after a nondisabling stroke is safe. However, the functional outcome of such patients has not been quantified for various degrees of stroke. We aimed to determine whether incr...

Dr Mark A. Farber (Chapel Hill, NC). I would like to congratulate the authors on a wonderful presentation and for providing me with a draft of the manuscript for review.

» Ischemia-induced lower extremity neurologic impairment after fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair
07/01/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Placement of large sheaths in the iliac system during fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (FEVAR) leads to lower extremity (LE) ischemia that can be associated with serious neurologic complications. We sought to determine the effect...

» A multi-institutional analysis of transcarotid artery revascularization compared to carotid endarterectomy
06/01/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Transcarotid artery revascularization (TCAR) is a novel approach to carotid intervention that uses a direct carotid cut-down approach coupled with cerebral blood flow reversal to minimize embolic potential. The initial positive data with...

» Ankle-brachial index in patients with intermittent claudication is a poor indicator of patient-centered and clinician-based evaluations of functional status
06/01/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
The association between the severity of ankle-brachial index (ABI), a traditional measure of the severity of peripheral artery disease (PAD), and patients' perceptions of their health status is poorly characterized. In Patient-Centered O...
