» Vascular Surgery Triage During the COVID-19 Pandemic
27/11/20 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a marked increase in hospital utilization, medical resource scarcity and rationing of surgical procedures. This has created a need for strategies to triage surgical patients. Here, we describe our ex...

» A systemic review into carotid plaque features as predictors of restenosis after carotid endarterectomy
27/11/20 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Restenosis after carotid endarterectomy (CEA) limits its long-term efficacy for stroke prevention. Thus, it is of utmost importance to identify the factors that predispose a patient to restenosis after CEA. This systemic review aims to s...

» Multi-specialty Surgical Management of Carotid Body Tumors in the Modern Era
27/11/20 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
The objective of this study was to assess the peri-operative and long-term outcomes of carotid body tumor (CBT) resection with a multi-specialty (head and neck surgery/vascular surgery) approach.

» Safety and effectiveness of the TREO stent-graft for the endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms
27/11/20 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Short and mid-term outcomes of endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) have made it a standard treatment for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), but newer generation devices have yet to demonstrate improved long-term rates of complications, rein...

» Endovascular Interventions for Claudication Do Not Meet Minimum Standards for the Society for Vascular Surgery Efficacy Guidelines
27/11/20 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Since the treatment of claudication is elective, good short-term and long-term outcomes are imperative. The objective of this study was to examine the outcomes of endovascular management of claudication, reported in the Vascular Quality ...

» Covered versus Bare-metal Kissing Stents for the Reconstruction of the Aortic Bifurcation in the ILIACS registry
27/11/20 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
To compare early and mid-term outcomes of polytetrafluoroethylene-covered stents (CS) versus bare-metal stents (BMS) used in the kissing conformation for the reconstruction of the aortic bifurcation in aorto-iliac obstructive disease.

» Systematic Review of Hemostatic Agents used in Vascular Surgery
26/11/20 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Hemostatic agents are routinely used in vascular surgery to complement proper suture techniques and decrease the risk of peri-operative bleeding. A relative lack of comparative research studies leave surgeons with the option of choosing ...

» Characterization of syndromic, non-syndromic familial, and sporadic Type B Aortic Dissection
26/11/20 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Type B aortic dissection (TBAD) is commonly thought of as a sporadic event, however, there is an increasing body of literature that suggest that there are genetic factors that influence TBAD. Our aim is to determine the prevalence of her...

» Fenestrated versus debranching TEVAR for endovascular treatment of distal aortic arch and descending aortic lesions
26/11/20 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Cervical debranching followed by thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) is well-established for treating aortic arch lesions, but total endovascular repair with fenestrated endografts has not been adequately studied. This is a compa...

» Economic Evaluation of Suture Versus Clip Anastomosis in Arteriovenous Fistula Creation
26/11/20 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Techniques like the use of nonpenetrating vascular clips for arteriovenous fistula (AVF) anastomotic creation have been developed in an effort to reduce fistula-related complications. However, the outcome data for the use of clips remain...
