» The Reintervention Index A New Measure for Comparative Effectiveness of Lower Extremity Revascularization
18/01/19 10:44 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Reinterventions after lower extremity revascularization (LER) are common. Current outcome measures for durability rely on freedom from reintervention but cannot assess the extent of repeated LER. The aim of this study is to compare the r...

» Renal Artery Coverage During EVAR for Ruptured AAA
18/01/19 10:44 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Coverage of one or both renal arteries may be required to facilitate endovascular repair (EVAR) in patients who are not candidates for open surgery in ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (rAAA). We sought to understand the consequences o...

» Contemporary Outcomes of Peripheral Bypass Compared to Amputation in Octogenarians
18/01/19 10:44 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Chronic limb threatening ischemia (CLTI) in octogenarians presents unique treatment challenges in patients with multiple comorbidities and variable functional status. Endovascular interventions offer a better risk profile; however, this ...

» Influence of Suprarenal Fixation on Perioperative Renal Outcomes after EVAR: Keep the Function You Still Have
18/01/19 10:44 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
To compare outcomes in patients with normal, moderate and severe chronic kidney disease undergoing endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) using devices with and without suprarenal fixation.

» Temporal Trends and Hospital Charges Associated with an Endovascular Approach for Acute Limb Ischemia
18/01/19 10:44 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Recent studies suggest similar perioperative outcomes for endovascular and open surgical management of acute limb ischemia (ALI). We sought to describe temporal trends, patient factors, and hospital charges associated with contemporary A...

» Long Term Quality of Life Comparison Between Supra and Infraclavicular Rib Resection in Patients with vTOS ??Title Incorrect???
18/01/19 10:44 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Rib resection in venous thoracic outlet syndrome (VTOS) may be approached via a transaxillary, supraclavicular, or infraclavicular approach based on surgeon preference. This study aimed to compare long term quality of life outcomes in vT...

» Clinical Practice Patterns and Bias in Randomized Trials: A Survey of Investigators in the BEST-CLI Trial
18/01/19 10:44 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Bias often confounds interpretation of research trial results. Best Endovascular versus Best Surgical Therapy for Patients with Critical Limb Ischemia (BEST-CLI) is a randomized trial comparing surgical and endovascular revascularization...

» Obesity Should not Prevent Radiofrequency Ablation in C2 and C3 Venous Disease Patients
18/01/19 10:44 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Patients with higher clinical CEAP score (cCEAP) require treatment given skin damage, whereas treating patients with lower cCEAP is debatable. Obesity is a risk factor for progression to chronic venous insufficiency and it is often cited...

» Operative Complexity and Prior Endovascular Intervention Negatively Impact Morbidity after Aortobifemoral Bypass in the Modern Era
18/01/19 10:44 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...

» Disparity in Outcomes after Revascularization for Critical Limb Ischemia Warrants Separate Reporting of Tissue Loss and Rest Pain
18/01/19 10:44 from Annals of Vascular Surgery
Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) manifests as tissue loss (TL) and rest pain (RP). Outcomes of lower extremity revascularization (LER) for CLI have traditionally been evaluated as a single entity and compared with claudication. We hypothesiz...
