» Overuse of early peripheral vascular interventions for claudication
14/06/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Guidelines from the Society for Vascular Surgery and the Choosing Wisely campaign recommend that peripheral vascular interventions (PVIs) be limited to claudication patients with lifestyle-limiting symptoms only after a failed trial of m...

» A systematic review and meta-analysis of isolated abdominal aortic dissection
13/06/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Isolated abdominal aortic dissection (IAAD) has remained poorly understood because of its rarity. We explored the prevalence, clinical characteristics, risk factors, imaging characteristics, and treatment strategy of IAAD to facilitate i...

» Association between surgical repair of aortic aneurysms and the diagnosis of intracranial aneurysms
13/06/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Aortic aneurysms (AAs) and intracranial aneurysms (IAs) share several clinical risk factors, a genetic predisposition, and molecular signaling pathways. Nonetheless, associations between IAs and AAs remain to be thoroughly validated in l...

» Clinical validation of three-dimensional ultrasound for abdominal aortic aneurysm
13/06/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Three-dimensional ultrasound (3D-US) examination is a relatively new modality that can be used for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) surveillance, and may offer improved reproducibility over conventional two-dimensional ultrasound (2D-US) ...

» Health literacy and abdominal aortic aneurysms
13/06/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Little is known about the public's knowledge of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). Although preventive screening is available, millions of Americans remain unaware of their risk. Improved health literacy has been associated with increased...

» Development of gene therapy with a cyclic adenosine monophosphate response element decoy oligodeoxynucleotide to prevent vascular intimal hyperplasia
13/06/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Intimal hyperplasia (IH) is the main cause of therapeutic failure after vascular and endovascular surgery. However, there is currently no targeted therapy for the treatment of IH. We recently reported that the inhibition of cyclic adenos...

» Impact of office-based laboratories on physician practice patterns and outcomes after percutaneous vascular interventions for peripheral artery disease
13/06/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Percutaneous vascular interventions (PVIs) for peripheral artery disease have shifted from hospital-based facilities to office-based laboratories (OBLs). The transition to OBLs is due to a variety of factors such as technology advancemen...

» Socioeconomic Distressed Communities Index associated with worse limb-related outcomes after infrainguinal bypass
13/06/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Several studies have demonstrated that socioeconomic factors may affect surgical outcomes. Analyses in vascular surgery have been limited by the availability of individual or community-level socioeconomic data. We sought to determine whe...

» Global Vascular Guidelines for patients with chronic limb-threatening ischemia
12/06/19 02:07 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
The Global Vascular Guidelines (GVGs) published in this month’s supplement of the Journal of Vascular Surgery1 are the most comprehensive clinical practice guidelines ever published on the management of patients with chronic limb-threate...

» Imaging characteristics of acute type A aortic dissection and candidacy for repair with ascending aortic endografts
12/06/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Acute type A aortic dissection (ATAD) remains associated with substantial short-term mortality, and despite increasing rates of surgical repair, as many as 10% to 20% of patients do not undergo surgery because of comorbidities and dissec...
