We read with interest the paper entitled “Knowledge gap of peripheral artery disease starts in medical school” from AlHamzah and colleagues.1 In their study of 72 graduating medical students, the authors found that students have a subopt...

» A systematic review and meta-analysis of drug-coated balloon versus conventional balloon angioplasty for dialysis access stenosis
21/08/19 11:04 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Arteriovenous fistulas for patients undergoing hemodialysis (HD) are at high risk of stenosis. Despite conventional balloon angioplasty (CBA), restenosis rates are high. The use of a drug-coated balloon (DCB) may offer an alternative to ...

» Drug-coated balloon angioplasty superior to conventional balloon angioplasty for stenotic arteriovenous fistula lesions: With caution
21/08/19 11:04 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
The key finding of this study is that stenotic peripheral arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) lesions treated with drug-coated balloon angioplasty (DCB) had a significant improvement in the 6-month and 12-month primary patency rates when compar...

» A systematic review and meta-analysis of risk factors for and incidence of 30-day readmission after revascularization for peripheral artery disease
21/08/19 11:04 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Readmission to the hospital after revascularization for peripheral artery disease (PAD) is frequently reported. No consensus exists as to the exact frequency and risk factors for readmission. This review aimed to determine the incidence ...

» A systematic review and meta-regression analysis of nonoperative management of blunt traumatic thoracic aortic injury in 2897 patients
21/08/19 11:04 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Thoracic endovascular aortic repair has transformed the management of blunt traumatic thoracic aortic injuries (BTTAI). Recent studies have suggested that the nonoperative management (NOM) of BTTAI may be a viable alternative. We investi...

Perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT) is an important supportive component to vessels. Over the years, PVAT has gained much attention owing to its likely involvement in cardiovascular diseases such as atherosclerosis. The incongruous effect...

» The Impact of Vascular Quality Initiative Surgeon Volume on Mortality After Open Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair in the Modern Era
21/08/19 11:04 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Surgical volume has been used as a surrogate for quality. Previous studies (with patient data before 2008) have suggested minimum volume requirements for surgeons (9-13 open abdominal aortic aneurysm repairs [OAAARs] per year) to achieve...

» Use of a Custom-made Four-Vessel Fenestrated Endograft to Repair an Enlarging Juxtarenal Aneurysm With Type IA Endoleak After Prior ZFEN Repair
