The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of paclitaxel-eluting stents (PES) and paclitaxel-coated balloons (PCB) on amputation free survival in patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI).

» Volume Standards for Open AAA Repair Are Not Associated With Improved Clinical Outcomes
14/06/19 00:00 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Volume-outcome relationships exist for many complex surgical procedures, prompting institutions to adopt surgical volume standards for credentialing. The current Leapfrog Group hospital volume standard for open abdominal aortic aneurysm ...

» Anatomic Variation of the Phrenic Nerve and Brachial Plexus Encountered During 100 Supraclavicular Decompressions for Neurogenic Thoracic Outlet Syndrome with Associated Post-Operative Neurologic Complications
14/06/19 00:00 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
The objective of this study is to characterize phrenic nerve and brachial plexus variation encountered during supraclavicular decompression for neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (NTOS) and identify associated post-operative neurologic ...

» Lower Socioeconomic Status is Associated with Groin Wound Complications Following Revascularization for Peripheral Artery Disease
12/06/19 00:00 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Surgical site infections (SSIs) following lower extremity revascularization are a common cause of increased morbidity in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD). Understanding the multifaceted risk factors for SSIs may suggest clos...

» Variation in Hospital Door to Intervention Time for Ruptured AAAs and its Impact on Outcomes
12/06/19 00:00 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
A ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) is a life threatening condition which carries a high mortality rate. Recent guidelines have recommended a goal “door-to-intervention” time of ≤90 minutes despite a paucity of evidence to suppor...

» Operative Complexity and Prior Endovascular Intervention Negatively Impact Morbidity after Aortobifemoral Bypass in the Modern Era
12/06/19 00:00 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Endovascular therapy is first-line treatment for aortoiliac occlusive disease. This shift has altered case volume, patient selection, and risk profile for aortobifemoral bypass (ABF). Given this, we sought to investigate factors influenc...

» Immediate Carotid Endarterectomy is Associated with Higher Risk in Symptomatic Patients
12/06/19 00:00 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Guidelines recommend that patients with carotid artery stenosis ≥50% (Sx-CAS) undergo carotid endarterectomy (CEA) within 14 days of symptoms. However, perioperative risks, especially stroke, may be increased when CEA is performed within...

» Analysis of Limb Outcomes by Management of Concomitant Vein Injury in Military Popliteal Artery Trauma
12/06/19 00:00 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Despite aggressive limb salvage attempts, military popliteal artery injuries are associated with high amputation rates. Combined arterial and venous injuries present a management dilemma for military surgeons in austere settings and the ...

» Factors affecting longer stay and higher costs during elective open repair for abdominal aortic aneurysm: a case control study
12/06/19 00:00 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Open surgery for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) has the advantage of requiring less re-intervention compared to endovascular aneurysm repair. The reduction of the initial hospitalization costs can provide socioeconomic benefits. The obj...
