» Attrition rates in integrated vascular and cardiothoracic surgery residency and fellowship programs
16/11/18 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Attrition in surgical programs remains a significant problem resulting in trainee dissatisfaction and wasted time and educational dollars. Attrition rates in general surgery training programs approximate 5% per year (30% cumulative). Att...

» Meta-analysis of the accuracy of contrast-enhanced ultrasound for the detection of endoleak after endovascular aneurysm repair
29/10/18 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
The purpose of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to investigate the diagnostic accuracy of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) for detection of endoleak after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR).

» Risk of spinal cord ischemia after fenestrated or branched endovascular repair of complex aortic aneurysms
29/10/18 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
The aim of our study was to analyze the incidence of spinal cord ischemia (SCI) in patients presenting with complex aortic aneurysms treated with endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) and to identify risk factors associated with this compl...

» Systematic review of native and graft-related aortic infection outcome managed with orthotopic xenopericardial grafts
24/10/18 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Limited data are available on the use of xenopericardium in the treatment of native and graft-related aortic infections. The aim of this review was to assess outcomes of neoaortic reconstruction using xenopericardium in this challenging ...

» Outcomes of endovascular treatments for in-stent restenosis in patients with mesenteric atherosclerotic disease
24/10/18 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Mesenteric angioplasty and stenting (MAS) has surpassed open revascularization as the treatment of choice for mesenteric ischemia. Despite the lower perioperative mortality associated with MAS, the need for reintervention is not infreque...

» Measuring the greater curvature length of virtual stent graft can provide accurate prediction of stent graft position for thoracic endovascular aortic repair
24/10/18 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
The objective of this study was to assess the accuracy of predicting stent graft position for thoracic endovascular aortic repair by measuring three lengths of the virtual stent graft: smaller curvature (SC), center lumen line (CL), and ...

» Remote iliac artery endarterectomy with selective stent use at the proximal dissection zone in TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus C and D lesions
24/10/18 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Remote iliac artery endarterectomy (RIAE) is a challenging technique in the treatment of arterial occlusive disease. The impact of proximal transection zone stenting on patency rates is still unclear.

» Repair of descending thoracic aortic aneurysms with Ankura Thoracic Stent Graft
24/10/18 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
The aim of the study was to present the results for patients with atherosclerotic aneurysm of the descending thoracic aorta (DTA) treated with a novel thoracic stent graft.

» Comparative outcomes of vascular access in patients older than 70 years with end-stage renal disease
24/10/18 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
The advantage of arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) in older patients requiring dialysis is controversial. We reviewed our vascular access experience in patients ≥70 years of age (older group) compared with younger patients.

» Prospective assessment of health-related quality of life after endovascular repair of pararenal and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms using fenestrated-branched endografts
24/10/18 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
The objective of this study was to investigate changes in health-related quality of life (QOL) in patients treated for pararenal aortic aneurysms (PAAs) and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAAs) with fenestrated-branched endovascular...
