Professor John Dormandy has died at the age of 82, just months after his wife Klara passed away. He was born in Budapest, and came to England in 1948. He was educated in Geneva, Paris, London, and New York. He started in a position as Le...

» Effect of Low Skeletal Muscle Mass on Post-operative Survival of Patients With Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: A Prognostic Factor Review and Meta-Analysis of Time-to-Event Data
13/06/19 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
Low psoas muscle mass is associated with increased mortality and morbidity after surgery. Recent evidence has linked low psoas muscle mass with survival after abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair. The aim of this study was to investiga...

» Restenosis Prevention With Drug Eluting or Covered Stents in Femoropopliteal Arterial Occlusive Disease: Evidence From a Comprehensive Network Meta-analysis
13/06/19 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
Endovascular interventions for femoropopliteal (FP) arterial diseases are limited by the development of restenosis. Current drug coated devices are capable of preventing restenosis by releasing antiproliferative agents to the vessel wall...

» Cervical Debranching in the Endovascular Era: A Single Centre Experience
13/06/19 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
Debranching of the supra-aortic arteries is a common practice either as part of a hybrid treatment of aortic arch pathology or owing to arterial occlusive disease. Results of the debranching techniques have not been reported frequently.

» Abdominal Compartment Syndrome. Caution: Contents Under Pressure
12/06/19 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
Abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) is the consequence of various adverse events in the peritoneal cavity or the retroperitoneal space and, at the same time the cause of even more deleterious complications. Interestingly and in contrast...

» Cryopreserved Allografts for Arterial Reconstruction after Aorto-Iliac Infection: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
12/06/19 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
Native and aortic graft infections are rare, but they represent one of the most life threatening complications of vascular surgery. Several materials and surgical approaches have been developed so far. Among them, cryopreserved allograft...

» Comparison of Immediate and Long-term Outcomes in Men and Women Undergoing Revascularisation for Chronic Limb Threatening Ischaemia in the Bypass vs. Angioplasty in Severe Ischaemia of the Leg (BASIL-1) Trial
12/06/19 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
The reports from cohort studies comparing outcomes after revascularisation for chronic limb threatening ischaemia (CLTI) between men and women remains controversial. Anatomical and clinical disease severity is often heterogeneous, and tr...

» Single Muscle Fibre Contractility Testing in Rats to Quantify Ischaemic Muscle Damage During Reperfusion Injury
12/06/19 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
In this study, the aim was to investigate the potential for single muscle fibre contractility (SMFC) testing to detect the extent of reperfusion injury following various reperfusion periods. The hypothesis was that force generated by mus...

» More Light on Isolated Mesenteric Artery Dissection from the Countries of the Rising Sun
11/06/19 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
In their paper, Qi et al. report on the experience of treating isolated mesenteric artery dissection (IMAD) in four major Chinese vascular centres.1 This disease is rare in Europe, but not so uncommon in East Asia. Most of the existing k...

» Disparities in Contemporary Treatment Rates of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms Across Western Countries
11/06/19 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
Several abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) screening programs have demonstrated a similar prevalence of this disease in Westerns countries, ranging from 1.2% to 2.8%. However, the annual rate of AAA repair is significantly less even, and it...
