Dr Lori L. Pounds (San Antonio, Tex). I would like to thank the authors for this innovative article that will help us as surgeons to better process the data into meaningful algorithms for patient care. This study uses the variables of a ...

» A reliable method for renal volume measurement and its application in fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair
18/10/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Renal volume has been shown to correlate with renal function. Renal volume and renal function both decline steadily in the sixth decade of life and beyond. We sought to assess (1) the inter-rater reliability for manually measuring renal ...

» The different effect of branches and fenestrations on early and long-term visceral vessel patency in complex aortic endovascular repair
18/10/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Aortic endovascular treatment with fenestrated or branched devices (f/bEVAR) requires a connection between the aortic graft and the visceral vessel (VV). However, data on the perioperative and long-term fate of the VVs remain scarce. The...

» Carotid to subclavian bypass and Amplatzer vascular plug subclavian endovascular occlusion before thoracic open or endovascular repair
17/10/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of endovascular occlusion of the prevertebral subclavian artery (SA) using an Amplatzer vascular plug after prophylactic revascularization with carotid-subclavian bypass ...

» A systematic review on the use of muscle flaps for deep groin infection following vascular surgery
17/10/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
The aim of this systematic review is to assess potential differences in effectiveness (graft loss and limb loss) between the sartorius muscle flap (SMF) and the rectus femoris muscle flap (RFF) coverage technique for deep groin wound inf...

» Velocities of type II endoleaks on Doppler ultrasonography predict outcome
13/10/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
We sought to determine whether flow velocities measured using Doppler ultrasonography after endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) can predict for resolution of type II endoleaks without intervention. We also assessed the relationshi...

» Previous thoracic aortic repair is not associated with adverse outcomes after thoracic endovascular aortic repair
13/10/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
As many as 20% of patients who have undergone previous thoracic aortic repair will require reintervention, which could entail thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). A paucity of data is available on mortality and the incidence of s...

» An exploratory study of vibration therapy on muscle function in patients with peripheral artery disease
13/10/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
The purpose of this exploratory study was to determine whether a single session of vibration therapy (VT) would improve muscular and functional performance in individuals with symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD).

» Revision using distal inflow for high flow hemodialysis access alters arterial flow characteristics in the dialysis arm
13/10/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
Revision using distal inflow (RUDI) is currently proposed in patients on hemodialysis having a high flow access (HFA; >2 L/min) or hemodialysis access-induced distal ischemia (HAIDI). However, a recurrence of high flow or hand ischemia i...

» Outcomes and safety of electronic consult use in vascular surgery
11/10/19 00:00 from Journal of Vascular Surgery
The objective of this study was to determine how electronic consults (eConsults) are used in vascular surgery in a veterans health care setting and whether their use is safe for patients.
