» Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Iliofemoral Stenting for Post-thrombotic Syndrome
07/11/18 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
Stent placements are considered as a treatment for post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) with iliofemoral obstruction, but the application of these iliofemoral venous stents has also caused a lot of controversy. The purpose of this systematic r...

» Optimal Antiplatelet Therapy in Moderate to Severe Asymptomatic and Symptomatic Carotid Stenosis: A Comprehensive Review of the Literature
07/11/18 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
Carotid stenosis patients are at risk of vascular events despite antiplatelet therapy. Data on prescribed antiplatelet regimens have not been comprehensively collated from trials to guide optimal therapy in this population.

» Mid-term Results of a Novel Dedicated Venous Stent for the Treatment of Chronic Thoracic Central Vein Obstruction of Benign Aetiology
04/11/18 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
Endovascular treatment is indicated for the treatment of symptomatic thoracic central vein obstruction (TCVO) but is limited by high rates of restenosis and the need for re-intervention. The aim was to assess the safety and mid-term pate...

» A Stent Graft Visualised Through an Infected Haemodialysis Graft Pseudoaneurysm
03/11/18 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
A 64 year old male presented with two needlestick pseudoaneurysms of a brachio-axillary PTFE haemodialysis graft; these were repaired by endovascular means using 7 × 40 mm and 7 × 60 mm Covera stent grafts (Bard, Tempe, AZ, USA) with per...

» The Safari for Adequate Landing Zones in EVAR Continues: Bilateral Use of Cook Zenith Iliac Branch Devices
02/11/18 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
The ultimate and durable exclusion of an abdominal aortic aneurysm requires adequate proximal and distal sealing zones. Fenestrated devices offer a solution for proximal extension. However, distal targetting into the external iliac arter...

» Traumatic Deviation of the Popliteal Artery
02/11/18 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
A 51 year old man was admitted with traumatic knee dislocation with clinical signs of acute limb ischaemia. A computed tomography scan confirmed the knee dislocation and also major axial deviation of the right popliteal artery outside th...

» Infrainguinal Bypass Following Failed Endovascular Intervention Compared With Primary Bypass: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
02/11/18 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
Patients with infrainguinal peripheral arterial disease often undergo multiple revascularisation procedures. Although many centres have adopted an endovascular first approach, some are reluctant to do so for fear of compromising the outc...

» Adherence to Prescribed Drugs Among 65–74 Year Old Men Diagnosed with Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm or Peripheral Arterial Disease in a Screening Trial: A VIVA Substudy
02/11/18 00:00 from European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery
Adherence to antiplatelet and statin therapy in participants diagnosed with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) or peripheral arterial disease (PAD) was examined in a vascular screening trial.
